One of my favourite blogs is by Giles Coren’s wife Esther Walker and is called The Spike. She has a sharp, irreverant humour and is wonderfully honest which attracts me instantly. The blog is very easy to read, full of recommendations and her general musings. I interviewed her a while ago so if you fancy getting to know her better, check this out.
Anyway, over in Spike land, Esther has recommended a company called Eggnog. Everything they sell can be coloured in and I particularly like their table-cloths and back-packs. They also do wallpaper which I love the idea of but I know that Mr UFM would have issues with this. He’s of the opinion that such a product would encourage general toddler home decorating which is never a good look.
Another more grown up product that I want to tell you about is the face-changing Hylamide-Glow Booster. I tested this last month for my beauty column and was really impressed. Basically this is a super gradual tanning product for the face. Actually, tanning product doesn’t really do it justice. It’s a product that will make your skin glow with health. People will comment that you look radiant and well-rested and even if the truth is that you’re grumpy and exhausted, no-one else will know your secret.
Oh and for the health conscious amongst us, it’s DHA free .
You can buy Hylamide Glow from Feelunique who have a 10% off deal at the moment. Rub a few drops onto your face before applying your normal moisturiser and in a few days you’ll be looking fabulous.
Last but not least, the most comfortable wedges I’ve ever worn (and I’m almost 8 months pregnant!!). They’re from Clarks and if like me you really struggle with normal heels but want a bit of a “lift”, then these might be for you. (£60 and here’s the link)
Have a great Friday!
