ANOTHER GREAT PRODUCT FROM TRINNY This year has been one of nearly no make-up. We were going nowhere, seeing no-one. However, as our skin still needs a bit of coverage, why not consider Trinny’s BFF De-stress Tinted Serum.
NP-TriOX™ Technology (including stress-busting Neurophroline) works to tackle the short and long-term effects of cortisol, while hyaluronic acid provides long-lasting hydration that plumps and smooths. It is a tinted moisturiser with an added kick that is just what our skin needs in the morning. For more info, click HERE. 12 shades to choose from.

KARCHER CORDLESS PRESSURE WASHER Annabel spotted this at a friend’s house, and with it looking like another summer at home, she thinks this could be her new favourite garden accessory.

STIMULATE YOUR TASTEBUDS Grace tries to do one ‘self care’ thing a day – plucking her eyebrows perhaps, massaging in cuticle cream, or remembering to take her Vitamins C and D! Her latest excursion onto Amazon came up with a tongue cleaner – not the most glam of products she freely admits. She’s happily using it twice a day and her tongue is definitely pinker. Made from surgical steel, this little scraper keeps your tongue healthy, helps maintain fresh breath, reduces coating and stimulates your tastebuds. Very quick and easy to use and to keep clean.
