Midday (Virgin) Mojito, anyone?

Since returning from the US last week, home of the fabulous Bath and Body Works (4 different coconut scents!) - I've been down with the flu; in my jetlag did British Summer Time end?

So imagine how chuffed I was when I read on the Twitter grapevine yesterday that The Body Shop have launched a new fragrance this week?!

The Virgin Mojito collection smells so edible, and just what I need as a pick-me-up. 

And as an additional pick-me-up The Body Shop have a 50% discount on a second item purchased (selected stock, check details with staff), so I bought the  

Virgin Mojito Shower Gel (250ml) 

 and Body Butter (50ml)

I have my eye on the Body Sorbet on payday, which left a gorgeous translucent shine on my skin. And there's a cocktail shaker gift set which might just appear on my Birthday Wish List! 

After shopping I popped into Starbucks for coffee, which turned out to be free when I bought lunch. My kind of Tuesday. 

Who needs the sun when there's (discounted) shopping?!

Off to Superdrug in a moment, to Revolutionise my Make-Up! 

What's your summer scent?

  1. I have been trying this range too and I absolutely love it! It smells so juicy, perfect for Summer! Thank you so much for the comment on my blog - I think the make-up bag was exclusively made for Love Me Beauty. I will find out for you and let you know if they're available to buy! xxx

  2. Thanking you! I already subscribe to two beauty boxes (Glossy and Birch) so m a y b e shouldn't start a menage a trois! But I can never resist a cute bag 8-)

From Ashford to Plymouth (and Cornwall) in a fortnight

So, Easter: how did you spend yours? 

I've just looked back over my recent photos and I think I know why this Pinot and Cadbury's egg is going down so well....we've packed in a fair bit over the last fourteen days.

Our adventures began in Ashford, Kent, via an overnight with friends in Chippenham - where I managed to leave my purse and my daughter's Kindle behind!  Time to pop on some sunnies and kick off your shoes: 

Thankfully we were staying with friends in Ashford, so we shared our budget for the five days of fun. 

First stop was Folkestone beach.  

Chicago: 48 Hours in the Magnificent Midwest

I first discovered Chicago in 2013, and have been fortunate enough to return several times since, usually for 24 or 48 hours, so I highly recommended this HIIT city destination. 

I also managed to fit in a 12 hour shopping trip layover when I visited Belize in April 2016.

A serial East Coast traveller (remember when everyone travelled to New York for a weekend break?) a work opportunity arose that saw me book a flight to Chicago for onward travel to a little student town called Champaign; four-hour return Amtrak trip, and well worth a visit for a true taste of America (they even have a freakin’ Dairy Queen).
Flights Flights are around 9 hours direct from the UK, and, depending how organised you are, range from £500-£800 for economy return.  
Hotels For reasons I’m about to go into, I enjoy staying at Hilton O’Hare (the only airport hotel; handy for layovers) or the Hilton Rosemont (one MTR stop from O’Hare and an entertainment haven).  City-centre hotels are very competitively priced, sta…
