Hanging out at Sarah's House

I don't often have a reason to go to Ventnor I must admit, based on the southern tip of the Isle of Wight, but recently stumbled across the delightful shop, At Sarah's House.
If you ever find yourself nearby, it's definitely worth dropping in to see what is offer. Most importantly, if you are a keen baker or a lover of beautiful homemade cakes and bread, then this is the place to get them!
I have come into the shop a couple of times and not only have been tempted by the wonderful baked goods, but also the cute popcorn holders, rustic seaside style decorations and beautifully designed cushions.
Today not only did I buy a couple of christmassy snowmen cupcakes, but also bought a string of red 'Chilli' lights for my kitchen, which I plan to adorn my blackboard with.

Further details can be found below:

Why I Love L'Occitane Hand Cream

I can't recommend the hand creams by L'Occitane highly enough, they come in various sizes and I particularly like the small versions for my handbag or to keep in the car. They are non-greasy, easily absorbed but very moisturizing and are reasonably priced! 


L'Occitane Hand Creams for Dry Skin and Limited Edition Date Bouquet,
nail varnish in Mavala Rouge Rubis 385 from YOU Advent Calendar.

Frosty morning!

Festive boudoir, Yankee Candles & Clinique Chubby Stick Ton Tomato/Liz Earle Cream Blusher

Welcome to my festive boudoir! Well the fairy lights are about as crazy as I am going to get in here!
I have put a few pics below for you!:
Tailor's dummy with fairy lights, oversized teacup, buddha, patterned screen, Yankee Candle bird candle holder.
Beautiful rabbit snowglobe from www.iloveretro.com
You can also get them from Graham & Green
Self-portrait at my dressing table, the candle is Sugar Apple (I think!), a festive
sampler from Yankee Candle, I absolutely adore these candles and have them dotted all over the house! You can buy them at Garden Centres and online, for example, Busy Bee Garden Centre.
Also wearing my addictive Clinique Chubby Stick in a light red called 'Two Ton Tomato', if you haven't tried these out, you must! They are easy to glide on, sheer, and last! I have mentioned them in an earlier post. The cream blusher is from Liz Earle, not much on my eyes here!
