Having left it too late last winter to get the winter coat I lusted after so dearly (still not quite over it!), as soon as the autumn/winter pieces started to drop this year, I pounced as soon as my eyes caught this faux fur beauty from Topshop. The perfect colour to go with everything! Saying that, I am a creature of habit for neutral tones and florals (guilty!!).  Since I got my coat, it has sold out but thankfully, they have re-stocked in a peach colour which I think is a much more flattering tone.

I paired it for a recent style shoot with this cute floral midi dress and gorgeous belt from Whitefawn Boutique

If there is one thing you spend money on this winter, a coat is well worth the investment, it will pay for itself in no time! Take your time in choosing the right one for you and make sure it will work with everything else in your wardrobe.  You need to ensure all your hard earned pennies are being well spent.

Dermalogica 30 Days to Fit Skin

Dernalogica, 30 days to fit skin, skin care, tone and tan youghal

Skincare not only begins from the outside on what you put on your skin, it also comes from the inside out.  I am a big fan of skin care and have always looked after my skin well since those early teen years, always ensuring I never miss out on my daily cleansing routine.  It has stood to me well but as the years go on (eek!) even though my skin would still be quite good, it does require extra care regardless of how well you look after it.  A healthy diet and visits to a skincare professional is essential.  That said, I was thrilled to be treated to a fabulous Dermalogica mini facial recently in Tone and Tan Beauty Youghal

Dermalogica have a current skin campaign running called 30 days to fit skin.  Their starter 30 day mini packs are available to purchase in select salons or pharmacies that stock the brand and are so handy if you just want to try out the products before purchasing the full size products.

The 30 minute Dermalogica Facial

I had a 30 minute mini Dermalogica facial.  After a skin analysis, Norma the salon owner, chose a skin brightening facial for me and I can 100% confirm that this was the nicest facial I have had!  My skin felt and still feels so amazingly soft from all the gorgeous products.  The 30 minute mini facial is so manageable from a time and cost perspective. If you treat yourself to one thing ladies, you must try this out. It covers everything right down to a fabulous decolletage and arm massage! I for one, am certainly going to be keeping up these facials on a regular basis from now on.

When the facial was complete, Norma did up my face mapping skin analysis chart.  She also gave me some sample products used as part of my skin brightening facial to try out at home.  The salon is super cosy and the girls so professional and lovely to deal with! If you are in the area, I highly recommend trying out the facial and products girls.  Your skin will thank you for it!

In the meantime, I cannot wait to get home later and take off my makeup!  Keep updated on my social media to see how I’m getting on over the next 30 days!
