5 April 2018.
It really is the first day of Spring! The sun is out, flowers are blooming, trees are budding and it’s even fairly warm.
As you know (if you are resident in the U.K.) this Spring has been atrocious. The weather has been dreary, dull, and dishwater wet. I cannot remember such a long winter; snow, slush, rain, snow, slush, rain. Boo!
Anyway, today is simply beautiful and I’m hoping the start of warmer weather.
I’ve been spring cleaning the boat, and de-cluttering, over the last few weeks. Today I found some gems.
I love lotions and potions – I think I wrote a post about them a few years back – so when I found a couple of Christmas presents in the storage section of our sofa-bed I was pretty excited!
Not only were they two of my favourite brands, but the fragrances are simply gorgeous too; ‘Pink Peppercorn’, ‘Black Peppercorn’, and ‘Indian Cress’ (in the Molton Brown gift-box) sound good enough to eat.
The L’OCCITANE soap (always a difficult brand to pronounce correctly) is not only lovely to use, but will pretty-up my shower-room shelf; when I opened up the cute little tin, expecting it to be empty, two clutch-bag-appropriate hand lotions were neatly wrapped in tissue paper. What a gorgeous surprise?
Now, unlike some bloggers, although I mention businesses and brands in my blogs, I don’t have the luxury of ‘enough’ followers to be paid for this; in essence this means anything I rave about is simply included because I L-O-V-E it…and if I love it I reckon you may love it too.
Recommending good stuff to my friends? We all do it, after all it would be mean not to share!
