I'm assured that night follows day, but my current shift pattern leads me to disbelieve this! I'm living in some kind of weird twilight world, but reading all your comments on my blog has made me smile, and it's lovely to get a snapshot of your world too.
Of course working lates does have its bonuses – bringing you some fabulous TSVs over the last week, and still several more to come. Last night was a corking excuse to dress up in my Christmas party dress for the Grand Opening of Diamonique Day – our 14th to date!
Thank heavens for Alison Young who laced me into a fitted and boned creation – but where was she at 2am when I needed to get out of it in a hurry and head off home?! Tucked into her bed I hope… it took a while but I was determined and with the help of a mirror and a coathanger I was able to disrobe rather than having to find my feet in amongst the chiffon, accelerator and brake pedals!
Tonight we have an incredible collection of Liz Earle products at a price that seriously begs belief! Caroline Archer will be joining me at midnight, and it promises to be a fast and furious couple of hours. We had a good old chin wag last Wednesday when we worked together, and both agree that this is possibly one of the best TSVs Liz has brought to you so far!
It actually gives me a very good excuse to answer the question Christine from Glasgow asked me on my blog last week: "What is my daily skincare routine?". Particularly pertinent as it begins with Liz Earle's Cleanse and Polish. It removes all make-up – including eye make-up – and if followed by the Gentle Face Exfoliator – it makes your skin squeaky clean!
I'm currently using Gatineau's Defi Lift 3D Volume Concentrate Serum which was recommended by Alison Young for my somewhat saggy skin, and I follow this with the Defi Lift 3D Perfect Design Moisturiser. Finishing off my regime is the Elemis Pro Collagen Eye Renewal – although this particular product is really being put through its paces at the moment with me averaging around five hours maximum sleep a night!
All that said my skin certainly looks a lot healthier than the black toad I found in our garden this morning when I went to hang out the washing… I wonder if it's the one our cat Dodge licked? Can't imagine what he was thinking of!
Hope to see you tonight at midnight, and any tips for a better night's sleep would be gratefully received 🙂
