Filofax

Hello everyone, i hope you're all well and having a good start to the week. I can see from my google reader on the right hand side that i've gained a few new followers so a big hello to those *waves* :).

I bought a new Filofax from Paperchase a few days ago and as the majority of you know i'm a huge stationary fan and love nothing better than jotting down my thoughts/ideas/appointments/lists/things to do etc in a planner, i love being organised.

I normally buy the standard yearly planners but the filofax as always appealed to me, mainly for the reason in how i can organise it just how i like plus buying the added extras and yearly refills without having to buy a whole new diary/planner each year is a huge bonus for me.

I bought the Domino chocolate Personal Filofax with the elastic closure:



The measurements are as follows; Width 130 by 190 height. It also features a six ring mechanism of 23mm. As you can see on the left hand side there are also internally cut out credit card pockets to store your cards and also a pouch to store any documents:




Week on two pages diary:




Personal finances pages. I bought these seperately, they cost £2.25 for numerous sheets:




Coloured ruled paper. The filofax already had some of these included although as i tend to write a lot of lists i bought another packet which includes 30 sheets of coloured paper for £2.75:




World Map, everyone needs a world map ;):



Does anyone else have a Filofax? Or loves stationary just as much as i do, i'm not a geek..... i promise.

Skincare Routine

Hello everyone, i thought i'd share with you my current skincare routine. My favourite part of beauty is skincare, having a good base afterall is the most important factor to healthy skin.

I have quite clear skin, i don't wear foundation (mainly tinted moisturiser and powder) and have never had too many breakouts/spots *fingers crossed*. I have combination skin which tends to get a little oily around the t-zone, although with a good skincare routine this is easily banished.

Below are the products which i use daily:




Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser:




I have used the Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish for quite a while now and i can honestly say that it's the best cleanser i've ever used. It's quick and simple to use, Step 1 Massaging 1 or 2 pumps of the cleanser onto dry skin over my face and neck, then Step 2 Rinse a muslin cloth in hand-hot water, wringing out before gently removing any dead skin cells. The cleanser removes every trace of make up and best of all leaves my skin feeling clean, refreshed and smooth. I can't rate this highly enough, definitely one of my favourite skincare products.

Liz Earle Instant Boost Skin Tonic:



I use this after the Cleanse & Polish, i simply pour a little onto a cotton wool pad and sweep over my face and neck. I love the smell of this, really pleasant. The toner instantly brightens my skin, leaving it smooth, hydrated and with a healthy glow.

Liz Earle Skin Repair Moisturiser:



I use the moisturiser following the instant boost tonic. I gently massage the moisturiser into my face and neck every morning and night. Afterwards my skin feels bright and soft to the touch, one of my favourite facial moisturisers.

Liz Earle Intensive Nourishing Treatment Mask:



I use the Nourishing Treatment Mask a few times per week. I apply to the face and neck and leave it on for around 10-15 minutes. Once rinsed off my skin looks bright and radiant, very soothing.

As you can see all the above products are Liz Earle. I've used many different brands of products in the past and Liz Earle definitely seems the brand that my skin is most suited to. Since using the products i can definitely see a noticeable difference to the feel and appearance of my skin, especially face care, a 10/10 rating for sure.

Hello girls, i hope you've all had a lovely weekend. What's everyone been upto? Friday night i saw my boyfriend and last night i went out with the girls, i felt a little (okay, a lot) worse for wear this morning but it was so worth it. Here's a picture of me from last night:



I wore my new black lace dress, i did have the exact same dress a few years back which had worn a little and as i loved the dress so much i decided to get the exact same one.

Half Days

Hiya ladies, i had half a day leave from work today so popped into town, i got:

The new Iphone 4 White, luckily i got the last one in stock, eek. It's on contract so i didn't pay full price for the phone just a percentage. I love it though, definitely my fave Apple product as yet:





Oasis Black Vest, i love these, i have them in Khaki and White too. They're a little bit more expensive than the basic vest top, although the fit is fab and that little bit different:



Scrapbook, Glue and a Diary from Paperchase:



I'm using the Scrapbook as a photo album where i just glue my pictures in (will post pics when i've made a start). I wanted something a bit different from the standard photo book:



New Giraffe Charm for my Links of London Sweetie Bracelet:



Charm up close, how cute:



Last but not least my new Bag which i won in Daisy's and ShopaLike's competition. Many thanks to Daisy and Shopalike, i love it:
