Military can sometimes be a little hard so I’ve softened the look with a few feminine touches of lace, tapestry and I’ve clinched in my waist with a wide velvet belt. Wide belts are top of my lust list at the moment. It’s probably one of my favourite ways to style up a look. Over jackets, cardigans or dresses. I’m sure it’s not the last time you’ll see me wearing a waist clincher like this one.

It was a pretty wet start to the day but it was brightened up with a lovely lunch and a handful of beautiful shows.
Prior to leaving the everyday juggling of family affairs occurred. That’s a military operation in itself. It can be a bit of a drama at times. But I guess it’s worth it when you get to enjoy a lovely day. Going to fashion week was always my goal when I first started my blog. I never stray to far away from my purpose. So I’m always happy to sit there and watch the front row antics and catwalk fashions. It’s a dream come true for me. A special day out that I really appreciate.

As a mother I often feel pulled in every direction especially when there’s so much to do and my family to consider. I sometimes feel I’m way to hard on myself. I love to achieve and do well in my work but I also love to be there everyday for my children. I sometimes need to be in four places at once. It’s a tough call at times and I often miss out on great opportunities so I can be there for my kids instead. That doesn’t make me sad but it can often feel frustrating. I guess I just want to be doing a good job all round for everyone. It’s a lot to take on at times. Women are doing so much these days. We fit into so many roles.I know men your do your thing too ( I praise you too). But the role of being a women has definitely changed and become a much bigger one. We are pretty super human in my opinion and I respect all that are doing their very best on a day to day basis. It’s not easy, so take five and be kind to yourself. Your doing a great job just being you.So on that note have a great week. Wear what you love and enjoy your life. xx Dawn

Feels like summer

Don’t you just love summer. Warm days that just feel so easy. Long lazy nights sat with a warm breeze and a cold drink. There’s definitely been a feel of summer these last few days. Dressing for summer can sometimes feel daunting. Having to unveil skin that hasn’t seen daylight for months isn’t the nicest feeling. It can sometimes feel awkward. Tops of legs and arms or the belly. Wearing cut out tops and shorts can feel alien to start, but it only takes a few days and everything feels natural again.

Preparing skin for summer sun can be an effort. But if you keep on top of it, you don’t need to be constantly worrying about it’s appearance. A good exfoliator is the key and I also like to use a coco butter to moisturise my skin as it’s longer lasting and really helpful at hydrating my skin. I’ve recently used the Charlotte Tilbury body balm and magic face cream. I have to say the results are amazing. My skin was instantly radiant with minimum effort. I always like to tan my skin with a little help from my favourite James reed mousse. Make sure skin is treated before applying-especially if its for a special occasion. I never exfoliate the same day as I tan. I always worry about damaging the skin then adding something to it that can aggravate it. So I allow at least 12 hours before I apply the tan. I always moisturise my ankles and hands after the tan to try and even it out. Bony areas are always a pain to get right. Big point to watch out for is washing hands after tanning. Don’t do it…well not for at last 30 minutes anyway. Gentle exfoliators are the best for the face, nothing too rough remember delicate areas need some TLC. Keep lips soft in the heat with a handbag size lip balm and I always think a eye serum is useful to use throughout the day to keep looking fresh and radiant. Happy pampering. xx Dawn
