A few days before I was admitted into hospital unexpectedly, I had the pleasure of being invited to sample the menu at Marco’s, Newcastle. Marco’s is part of the Marco Pierre White Steakhouse Bar & Grill chain and is best known for its steaks (clue’s in the name). I’m not a huge steak eater so I wanted to test out whether it could cater for other tastes.
Last year, I started a totally new beauty treatment – going a bit more invasive than I ever had before. I wrote all about why I decided to have laser thread vein treatment here and how I chose to go to Aspen Beauty in Stannington for it. Now I’ve had my first appointment, I thought I’d report back on what actually happened.
It’s been over a year since I wrote about my daily skincare routine, and actually quite a lot has changed since then. I had this idea in my head that I was pretty loyal to skincare products, but my current stash tells quite a different story! I switch between three different cleansers, depending on how my skin feels when I wake up, and I recently bought a new serum and night cream to try. Clearly, I like to try new things… so imagine my joy when I got to try a whole new skincare routine from Liz Earle.
So, a funny thing happened. Before I knew I was pregnant, Andrew and I had a cleaner come round and give us a price for cleaning the house twice a month. So this lovely lady comes around with her Mum, who is also her business partner, and I showed them around our house. Going from room to room, I could kind of see them trying to put a brave face on it… you see, our house is just full of stuff. And I’d never really noticed before, until I saw it through their eyes!
Kat Von D is one of my FAVOURITE brands. The first product I got was the contour palette, which is still going strong, and I also have one of her liquid lipsticks, which I love. I had a shopping voucher so decided to treat myself to a few bits from her stand in Debenhams. I say a few, I mean two, but hey that shit is expensive.
