Soaking up the spring sun


My goodness me, isn’t everything better when the sun is shining?! I’m loving getting to spend so much time outdoors with my kids. I’m very lucky to live on the coast, so we have been taking full advantage of the beach.

Last weekend was the first full weekend I have had off from work for a while, and the weather was incredible. Sadly Fred was away in France for the cycle event I mentioned in my last blog, the Paris Roubaix, but that didn’t stop us from having fun.

We spent the weekend making sandcastles, paddling in the sea and enjoying the warmth on our skin. Protected by Ultrasun of course! I also spent the weekend wearing my H by Halston jumpsuit which was perfect for running around after the kids.

I have been doing a bit of home improvement lately too, we are getting rid of a ‘feature wall’ in our living room and my dad has made us cabinets and shelves to go in. It’s not finished yet, but I made a start of painting over the old wallpaper, with the help of Tilda.

I can’t wait to have more storage in our living room so I can put all the kids arts and craft stuff away at the end of the day. I shall post a ‘before and after’ really soon.

Coming up this week, I will be in the Salon with SBC and launching their Today’s Special Value with the lovely Adele O’Donoghue.

I am particularly loving the Lemon and Myrtle Gel, and I also got to try out the shower creme too – it smells so fresh for summer.

I went to a party the other night on one of the very warm days we just had and the gel was perfect to use instead of a cream moisturizer because it sunk in so quickly and I felt fresh and clean all evening.

I even did a little cheat, and mixed the gel with a small amount of foundation and used it on my legs – that’s my top tip. So tune in at midnight on Thursday night to see exactly what’s in the Today’s Special Value (a little birdie tells me there will also be an Auto Delivery option).

I’ve been really loving the fashion at QVC recently too and so I thought I would start a ‘favourite outfit’ post on my blog. So here is my first one:

It’s from MarlaWynne and it’s the Jacquard Knit Pintuck Culottes and the Matte Shine Side Drape Top in Champagne. I am also wearing Marc Fisher shoes, which matched it all so well. Let me know what you think.

Have you been tempted by anything from our Diamond event this month? As I mentioned last week, I have been lucky enough to get to borrow the 1ct Elegance Diamond Ring to wear this month. I’m getting very attached to it and may struggle to give it back! It stacks so well with my own rings and the diamonds really are so sparkling.

It’s quite a modern style I think too and it’s also on 3 Easy Pays – which makes it even more appealing.

So that’s it from me this week, do keep stopping by as I have a very exciting May coming your way. It’s another jewellery event and I will have a competition for you every week right here, so don’t miss out.

As always keep up with me on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook.

Love Katy x
