Winter days, bright lights and caring for winter skin!


Hello! Hope you are well, thanks so much for reading my blog.

How are your Christmas preparations going? As you know from my blog last week I am well organised this year; cards went out in early December and pressies all wrapped up in Giftmate and ready to be delivered!  Just have one of my mum’s present still to arrive from QVC and a trip to Borough market to pick up some foodie presents then I am done, hurrah!

craig-in-hackneycraig-with-emmas-treeI was off work this last weekend so spent some time with my friend Emma over in East London.

We had a lovely walk round Hackney Downs yesterday and you can see me sporting my Harvey & Jones jacket which is light but so cosy, it’s actually warmer than another branded ski-style jacket I have that cost twice as much!

Whilst I was with her we also decorated her tree, a little tradition of ours, doesn’t it look beautiful?


Talking of beautiful remember how I said I ordered another set of the Alison Cork candle holders in white? Well, here they are lit up on my window ledge and they look wonderful. The design is so clever as the candlelight makes the tree look golden.


How is your skin looking and feeling at the moment? I switch to richer textures this time of year and my skin responds well. Two ranges I am using at the moment are Pure Potions and Gale Hayman.

pure-potionsPure Potions is a ‘free-from’ range created by a mother who wanted to find a completely natural skin product for her daughter who had severe dry skin. I love the textures, feel and natural quality of this range and it leaves skin on the face and body in such healthy condition.

I absolutely adore the texture of this cream and even though it’s so rich it doesn’t add any greasiness to my skin, just leaves my complexion looking really nourished and fresh, I love it!

I use the Youth Lift round my eyes and forehead and because it’s such a good price you can even use it as a mask on those areas, great little tip from guest Jon Gustafson. Check out the fabulous duo!


Well, that’s if for the moment – have a great week and I will see you throughout this week with Cozee Home, Elemis, gifts and even DIY! Until then big hugs!

Craig xx
