Yay! Break out the Philosophy books… I mean bottles!


Philosophy Deluxe Cocktail Party I'm now ready to say that summer is here!! It is isn’t it – hasn’t this week been gorgeous? I went out for lunch at a local pub on the river with my husband and we sat in the sunshine eating chicken and bacon burgers!! They were so filling!!!

Anyway, now that the sunshine is here, it's time to break out the Philosophy cocktails!! To be honest, I’ve had Mimosa and Margharita both in the shower now for a couple of months and I ADORE them – particularly when the weather is hot. 

Perfect timing as usual, we have some fabulous Philosphy shows this week in Philosophy The Great Mystery Daily Facialour Philosophy Mini Series starting on Thursday. I’m a huge fan as loads of you well know, but my all time favourites have to be: 
Margarita and Mimosa Shower Gel

 Philosophy Shear Splendor Shampoo & ConditionerThe Great Mystery Daily Facial – fabulous stuff, I can’t recommend it enough!!

 - The Microdelivery Peel - which even my husband loves!! 

 - Plus, this time of year, I also HIGHLY recommend their body scrubs - all so beautiful!!!

 - Oh yes, I also use Shear Splendor Shampoo on the children at the moment!

Really, where would I be without QVC? Anyway, need to go as the piano tuner is just finishing off!

Love Pipa x

    Hi Pips,
    Can I please ask which self tan you use? I know you mentioned the Monne one on your holiday blog and I have tried the serum one but it washed off the next morning :@(.
    Hope the family are well

    pipa a good while ago you showed a stainless steel scattered diamonique ring which you placed on your thumb. I totally loved it but I missed out on ordering it. If you can remember the ring just wanted to know if it will make a come back..
    thanks Janice

    Hi Lorraine – yes Monne is the one – and the colour would have washed off the next morning as it would have been the instant colour which is there just as a guide for when you apply but you will also self tan underneath it. The serum is quite light, I go for the spray or the liquid personally.
    And hi Martin how are you? I’m fine thanks, reeeally glad to see the sun shining this week yes indeed! x x

    Hi Pipa,
    I am watching you on the desert island beauty essentials and you mentioned the eyeliner trick that Mally taught you. Please please can you explain it to me in detail.
    Hope the family are well.

    Hi Lorraine
    OK – it’s tricky to explain in words!! Draw a vertical line (northwards) from the outside corner of your eyelid, make it about 4mm tops, then from that point, go diagonally across back down towards the lash line so that it makes a triangle on the outer half of the eyelid – then carry the line across the lash line to the inner part of the lid – does that make sense???? Let me know how you get on!!! Much love Pipa x x

    Hi Pipa
    I hope you don’t mind me asking but were you one of the two girls on backing vocals for Little Boots on Jonathan Ross’s show last night? I really enjoyed the song and have replayed the programme over and over again on BBC iplayer. I am still convinced it was you. If not, then you have a double. And OH!!!! the look on your face when Jonathan was hoisted!!!! (if it was you?)
