I soooo want one of these but unfortunately can't see myself spending alomost £600.00 on a Handbag, boo.
Do any of you own designer Handbags, what are your thoughts? Worth the money? Do you use them more than a non-designer bag?.

Always one to be "controversial" and "creative" (or rather strange some may comment) to say the least with her wacky and over the top dress sense, i think this one as to be her most shocking to date.
Apparently she was trying to put a message across but surely there's a more better way of doing this without feeling the need to wear cuts of meat made into a dress, hat and boots?!
What are your thoughts?

Product: Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser
Cost: £13.00, 100ml
About Liz Earle:
Co-founders Kim and Liz decided to develop a product range that really worked, was pampering yet affordable, simple to use and for everyone - no matter what their age or skin type. They were determined to use the best possible naturally active ingredients, which inspired the name Naturally Active Skincare. They also set down clear principles from the outset that included a genuine commitment to quality and service for our customers. From the integrity of the ingredients and the friendly voice on the phone, to the way each individual product is beautifully hand tissue-wrapped and the in-depth advice our customer care team provide. We are all passionate about adhering to these principles
About the product:
I've read lots of positive reviews on Liz Earle's Cleanse & Polish so when I ran out of my normal cleanser I decided I wanted to try a different brand product so gave this a go. I ordered from Liz Earle's official site, which was informative, speedy, secure and very user friendly.
I paid £13.00 for 100ml and this came complete with two muslin cloths and a lovely zip toiletry style bag which the products arrived in along with a free sample of a small bottle of skin tonic. The packaging is in a simple light green plastic bottle with the Liz Earle logo at the front, simple yet effective. Postage and Packaging cost £3.00 which I feel is a reasonable amount, my item was dispatched and delivered within 3 days and came wrapped beautifully in tissue paper.
How to use:
The cleanser is of a thick creamy white texture and dispenses itself easily from the bottle without any mess or spillages. It states to use one or two pumps when you apply to the face, although I felt that one pump was just enough for me, any more would've been a waste.
Once I apply the cream to my dry face I use my fingertips to gently massage the cream over my face and neck in circular movements from the centre of my face outwards. I often use the cleanser when I still have make up on so I leave the eye area until last so the make-up doesn't spread across my face.
I then rinse a muslin cloth in hot water, wringing the water out so it isn't wet, just damp. I use the muslin cloth to wipe off the cream using a clean section of the cloth for each part of my face. To clean more awkward areas such as around the eyes/nose I put a single finger inside the cloth to make sure I get a more thorough clean. Once done I then rinse my face in cool water and gently pat dry with a towel.
Remember to rinse out the muslin cloth after use and allow it to dry out naturally. It's recommended that to keep the muslin cloths clean and fresh to put them on a 40 degrees wash after every two uses.
After using the cleanser my skin immediately feels very clean and refreshed, I've also noticed after using it continuously that my skin appears firmer and plumper. I see results immediately, it removes my make-up and makes my skins feel great, what more could I want?! A definite staple in my beauty routine.
A few days back i followed this link:
I signed up and i'm able to see what's online now instead of waiting until the 16th September, woop.
Admittingly there's not much online at the moment at all so on first impressions i felt quite disappointed, boo. Fingers crossed there's going to be more stock added once the site is fully launched.

Autumn/Winter Outfit featuring leather mid calf boots
My Autumn/Winter Outfit.
With our summer being almost non-existant i have a feeling i'll be wearing outfits as the one above sooner rather than later!!
(I'd wear the boots pictured above under the Jeans, not over).
Most of the above are from Topshop except for the Jeans which are Seven for all Mankind.
As anyone else been shopping for warmer clothes? I bought a really nice black fitted wool Jacket from H&M yesterday, will upload a photo once i get chance.
I wrote a post a few months back stating how i'd been invited to the Aussie Haircare Event as an honorary angel. Emma got in touch with me a few days back to see if i'd like to become a "Full Aussie Angel" wings and all..... of course i accepted ;).
