A little me time ..With Clarins. This is one of my favourite products for relaxation. I like many of us these days have a stressful busy life. Whenever I get the chance to have a little time out I’ll put a small amount in my bath and light a few candles.
My relationship with exercise has not always been a match made in heaven.

The Cambridge diet The cabbage diet The egg diet The diet where you can only eat foods that begin with b in the dark diet 🤔 We would try anything and everything in the pursuit of emaciation. Now when you hit 40 strange things start to happen to your body especially if like me (Duff) you have a late baby. Things start to drop and they begin to drop quickly!!

At 40 I knew it was a case of use it or lose it! Lose muscle tone Lose definition lose your boobs to your waistline and your arse to your knees 😳
