I love any kind of facial treatment. I really am up for trying anything. A chance to give your skin a well deserved treat. I was invited along the other week to a clinic called Medizen, based in Sutton Coldfield, Birmingham, to try out their Perk treatments. 


Burleighs Gin Distillery tour | Leicestershire

Burleighs pink gin distillery tour

You all know I'm now a big lover of gin right? Well, a few weeks back Leicester's gin masters, Burleighs, invited me along to their distillery where they offer tours to the general public so you can go and have a good old nosey around and learn a little about the process. I DID NOT need to be asked twice and I took my gin buddy, Mr C. If I took anyone else he would have actually killed me! 


Gin Festival at Athena Leicester

Exploring gins at the gin festival Athena Leicester \ Priceless Life of Mine \ over 40 lifestyle blog

I've not been a big spirit drinker since my teenage years really but I've become a bit of a gin lover of late. It started in the summer when Nick met up with his friend Gary and they whiled away a few hours in the pub garden sipping on G&T's. That translated to Nick forcing me to try one, and me being adamant that I really didn't like gin. But, wait a minute, this wasn't the gin I remembered. This was actually really nice!!! Fast forward to November, and many bottles of gin later, we found ourselves off to the gin festival in our home town!!! The event was being held at Athena in Leicester and we were invited along by Ginfestival.com, the UK's premier gin events company. With festivals being held all over the UK, they've become hugely popular. Understandable!

Black Iron at Winstanley House Leicester

review of the food at Black Iron Winstanley House Leicester \ Priceless Life of Mine \ Over 40 lifestyle blog

A few weeks back the Black Iron restaurant opened it's doors to the public and Mr C and I were invited along for the press night. I was intrigued to say the least because it's situated in Winstanley House, formerly known as Braunstone Hall, a grade II listed building that has sat derelict for some 20 years. The grand building has been sympathetically restored to its former glory marrying the old building with a new ultra modern extension. We were given a tour of the hotel rooms and facilities and whilst there seemed to be quite a bit of finishing off to be done, you could see that all the rooms had that touch of luxury, especially the two opulent bridal suites. Winstanley House sits in Braunstone Park and the former stately home is perfect for weddings, parties, weekend breaks, or just to pop in for lunch or even just a coffee. The history of the house is fascinating and you should definitely take a look here.

Bistrot Pierre in Leicester have recently undergone a refurbishment and I was kindly invited along to sample the menu and checkout the new look. We've actually dined at Bistrot Pierre a few times in the past and it's one of my favourite restaurants in Leicester so I was excited to go and see what they'd done with the place.

I've struggled for a little while finding the right concealer for my skin, it's like chasing that perfect foundation, most of them are just too drying, especially around my eyes and end up sitting in my creases making me look 100 years old! None of us want that do we ladies?!

I've been quite vocal of late telling you how I've really upped my game looking after my skin and I'm certainly seeing results. I'm throwing in acids, vitamin C and retinol but have to be honest I tend to forget about my lips even though I really dislike them and I'd change them tomorrow if I could!

Thoughts on the Aldi candle dupe

Thoughts on the Aldi candle dupe \ review \ Jo Malone \ Blackberry bay \ home fragrance \ Priceless Life of Mine \ over 40 lifestyle blog

I was a bit late jumping on the bandwagon with the Aldi candles. The media furore somehow passed me by! It was only when my son's girlfriend mentioned how much her mum loved them that I hopped in the car in a mad dash to get myself one (or two). Apparently they've sold out time and time again, flying off the shelves the minute they come in.


The Ordinary. Skincare that everyone is still talking about

The Ordinary \ Skincare that everyone is still talking about \ Deciem \ The abnormal beauty company \ beauty \ skin \  cosmeceuticals \ Priceless Life of Mine \ Over 40 lifestyle blog \ Leicester

The Ordinary. The buzz around this brand has been phenomenal with products hitting the shelves with a BIG bang and then flying off said shelves at a rate of knots. Falling under the umbrella of Deciem, The Abnormal Beauty Company, The Ordinary is a brand they have made affordable to everyone. All of the Deciem brands use high quality, high concentration ingredients and The Ordinary is no exception. Caroline Hirons actually did a blog post around a year ago putting some questions to Brandon Truaxe, the founder of Deciem and it's quite interesting.

You'll probably know that I'm not a fan of ordering clothes and stuff online. I can't be arsed with the hassle of having to send stuff back that inevitably doesn't fit because in actual fact I'm a size 9!! Sometimes an 8, sometimes a 10 but more often than not my size is somewhere in the bloody middle.

Styling the petite cropped trouser

fashion styling \ petite \ cropped trouser \ fashion blogger \ styling the cropped trouser \ Priceless Life of Mine \ Over 40 lifestyle blog

Finding the right fit for petite trousers can be difficult at the best of times, let alone 'cropped' petite trousers. If you get the wrong fit they can drown you and make you look even shorter, and none of us want that do we?! 

The cropped trouser is here to stay and it can add so much versatility to your wardrobe. Keep it casual with a tee or dress them up for a night on the town. I've opted for somewhere in between for this look, perfect for meeting friends for coffee or a lunch date, great for a day in the office too perhaps? 

fashion styling \ petite \ cropped trouser \ fashion blogger \ styling the cropped trouser \ Priceless Life of Mine \ Over 40 lifestyle blog

This floral yellow blouse with fluted sleeves is super pretty and comfy to wear. It's actually from Primark and you can find it here. It's very sheer so you'll need a nude coloured bra or maybe a vest type top with thin straps underneath, personally I just go for the bra, you can see it slightly when you get up close and personal but that doesn't bother me.

fashion styling \ petite \ cropped trouser \ fashion blogger \ styling the cropped trouser \ Priceless Life of Mine \ Over 40 lifestyle blog

These trousers are from Dorothy Perkins but I can't see them online to link to. There's some similar here but without the tie detailing.

fashion styling \ petite \ cropped trouser \ fashion blogger \ styling the cropped trouser \ Priceless Life of Mine \ Over 40 lifestyle blog

The cropped trouser can instantly make you look slimmer with the eye drawn to the ankles. Cropped are great to show off fabulous shoes and there are so many different styles. I prefer the straighter leg style which are loosely fitted then taper slightly to the ankle. I have some similar ones in burgundy  (here) that I wore to London Fashion Weekend.

You really do have to be careful though if you are petite. Shop around to find the perfect style to suit your body shape as with the shorter hem if you're not careful some will make your legs look even shorter. Also, try and wear a shoe that shows the top of your foot to elongate the legs a little more.

Micro needling & skin renewal with Swiss clinics

Skin roller \ micro needling \ Swiss clinics \ beauty \ review \ anti-aging \ skin renewal \ Priceless Life of Mine \ Over 40 lifestyle blog

I've talked about my skin, and the problems I have with it, on this blog many a time. As I've gotten older my skincare routine has become really important to me and I'm now throwing everything at it, going real hard core. I mean I'm not literally just throwing any old thing at it obviously, but really considering what I'm putting on my skin these days and what benefits it has. I've brought in all the anti-aging big guns, retinols, vitamin c, and all sorts of acids. I wrote a couple of posts a while back about my routines which you can read here and here but I will be doing a more up to date post on my current skincare including all the products I'm now using. More recently I've also added a skin roller into the mix. Even though I've only recently added it, I've been thinking about it for quite some time. Last year I had a collagen PIN treatment at a clinic and knew then that I wanted something similar that I could do at home.

Last weekend Nick and I had a real yearning to be there, so what was the next best thing? Stick on the Gipsy Kings and have a Spanish style feast of course.


Face masks I'm using right now

beauty \ face mask \ Temple Spa \ Trufflesque \ The Contourist review \ Liz Earle \ Exuviance review \ skincare \ Priceless Life of Mine \ Over 40 lifestyle blog

One of the great things in life is a good old 'at home' pamper session, Let's face it, not all of us can afford costly trips to a salon but we can afford to give ourselves a bit of TLC in the comfort of our own home. A hot bubble bath followed by a mani, pedi, face scrub, then pop on a face mask and relax, pure bliss. It should be a once a week ritual at least because taking time out for yourself is good for the body and the soul.

Although, thinking about it we did have a recipe box delivered recently and enjoyed cooking up a storm together with that.

You know I've been searching for THE perfect foundation for like, EVERRRRRR. I guess you are too aren't you? It's a never ending journey, jeez, I'm sure we'll only find it at the end of the rainbow with that pot of gold! I thought I'd found THE ONE here, but it goes a bit like this - you buy it, spending loads of pounds in the process, you use it for a good month or two and you actually do love it, but then all of a sudden, out of the blue, from nowhere, you're skin looks shit again. I mean, what the hell has happened, what's changed? It just doesn't look polished or give the coverage it did when I first started using it and I haven't the foggiest why, all I do know is that I want something better and I'm on the hunt, again! *SIGH*

I don't know about you but I'm always busy double cleansing and toning, I'm incorporating acids and retinol into my routine now and throwing all the moisturiser I can at my skin, you ladies doing the same? I need to whisper something in your ear though; I've not been very good at looking after my neck and décolleté area. I've kind of neglected it over the years when it also needed lots of TLC, and I'm now extremely annoyed that I didn't pay it more attention.

You can't beat an at home pamper session and I love a face mask as much as the next girl, taking time out for yourself to relax and refresh is the best isn't it? Unless you can afford a spa treatment, then I guess that's actually the best, but hey ho! I use a face mask on a regular basis, most definitely once, maybe even twice a week, and there are plenty out there that I 'like', the odd one I've purchased again, others not at all. The Oatifix fresh face mask from Lush, I LOVE and I don't say that lightly. My God it's amazing.

A couple of weeks ago we flew to Geneva on a surprise mission. Our daughter Emily is currently working in the French Alps as a chalet host and having the time of her life. She kept on asking us to go visit her but for one reason or another we just couldn't do it. I won't bore you with the details but things changed, we booked our flights and off we went. We decided not to tell Emily and just turn up. We'd spoken to Matt, the owner of the chalet where she was working and arranged to stay there and he sorted our transfers from Geneva, which is about 90 minutes, on a good day. We arrived at the chalet around 6pm and the look on her face was priceless. Shocked but so pleased and excited.
