Nail Joy

I have had a terrible time with my nails in the past. They peel, they chip, I pick at them and then paint to ignore all the flaws.

However - over the last few weeks since I have been taking these supplements from Sainsbury's that were dirt cheap - they have grown and they are strong! I don't know what the deal is as I have always taken multi vitamins but these are really helping. I can't think what else I have done. I have painted them pillar box red to celebrate.

Grow my beauties grow!

them painted before one chipped!

Interview with Dawn

One of my oldest and dearest friends Miss Dawn was asked ages ago to complete an interview I had made up for her. She finally got around to it last week which was unexpected because she is extremely busy running a business, raising a daughter and just being her which is exhausting in itself. Dawn doesn't do things in half measures and for that I am always in awe of her. She somehow keeps it all together (even if there might be a few hiccups along the way).

Nonetheless I was curious if she has any time for beauty. It would seem not so much. You're still glam Dawny!

When you were pregnant what changes did you notice in your skin the most? How did you combat if at all?

I didn't really notice any skin changes or none that I can remember. I didn't even get stretch marks!

Since you live in Spain, do you use a particular sun care lotion and which one do you like the best?

I like Clinique. They have a product with UV protection with a tint that gives my skin a lovely glow.

Now that you're a very busy mom do you have time for a routine?

Well I try and find the energy to wash my make-up off at the end of the night, when I wear it that is. My makeup bag seems to have become my daughter's favourite play toy and every time I go to use anything it seems to be missing a vital piece. When we have a bath together I have time to shave my legs and put on a moisture mask.

What's changed the most over the last few months - is there anything about your looks you wish you could change?

Lack of time for beauty!

Are there any products that you can't live without?

Face moisteriser.

Your hair is famous (Dawn has the most amazing curly hair). What hair care products do you use and what do you find works the best for your hair type?

Nothing. I have learned to live with consistant frizz!
