On our last trip to London this November I managed to check out the latest pastel extravaganza at the Peggy Porschen Parlour. I hadn't been back since Halloween a couple of years ago, so a visit was way overdue.
Iv said before, id literally go just to the parlour just to see the latest decor, but thankfully the cakes and cupcakes are just so amazing that its definitely not a wasted journey.
This year the theme is very much Sugar and Ice and all things nice. Think powder pink and minty greens with lashings of snowflakes. Not to mention arctic polar bears and pink penguins!
Not only is Peggy Porschen doing its things for Pastel lovers everywhere, its also aiming to increase awareness of the at-risk status of the Arctic, home to the iconic polar bear as well as four million people, the Sugar & Ice Christmas Collection will support WWF-UK's work in the region to turn the tide on climate change, by donating 5% of each Arctic cupcake sold. And this definitely helped me feel less guilty about my cupcake consumption!
I tried the spiced Gingerbread cupcake, topped with lemon cream cheese frosting and I may have also had the peppermint with ice blue frosting topped with an a shimmering snowflake! Both amazing but my favourite was definitely the gingerbread!
Have you checked out the Christmas dec's at Peggy's yet?
Finding just the right outfit for those special moments in life can seem impossible. After all, we often don’t know when someone significant is going to pop the question, or when your sister will tell you she wants you to be godmother. We just can’t be sure something potentially life changing is going to happen! And looking your best for those moments? Impossible under the circumstances.
But if you take the time to consider what period of life you’re in, and what’s going on in it, you can change your wardrobe to suit your big announcement needs. Not to mention how stylish you’re going to look all the time! And it’s easy to do this, just read through the pointers below!
A Pair of Jeans That Hug You Just Right
Jeans are great for shaping your body, and helping you to feel your best self whenever you look in the mirror or pass a pane of glass in the street. And seeing as jeans are one of the most common things to find in our wardrobes, it won’t be hard to dress up right with them!
Know the best colours for your skin tone. A dark pair of jeans will always look sleek and stylish, but you won’t want to discount white or pale blue jeans either. If it’s dark outside, a nice pair of light jeans will help you to stand out from the crowd, especially if you’re ice skating with the person you love and want the moment to look AND feel magical!
A Dress That Brings Out Your Eyes
Putting a dress on is always going to help you to look stylish - if you’re a big dress wearer anyway, it'll be so comforting and familiar that you’ll be able to naturally sweep around in it. If you’re not much of a dress wearer, it’ll be so new and full of change that anyone who knows you will take note of it.
Which is why it might be a good idea to invest in a few more dresses, and particularly, ones that bring out your eyes. And depending on the colour you choose, they might just highlight your hair colour too! For example, a green dress is works wonderfully for blue or hazel eyes and red or auburn hair, so why not compare green ones whilst you’ve got the time?
Shoes That Keep You Light on Your Feet
And of course, the shoes make the man! And they make the woman too! A good pair of shoes will help you to feel like you could go on forever, and if your walking gait and pace looks good, you’ll add a much needed layer of charisma to your whole outfit. That’s invaluable when you need to take a good picture of a big moment, or you want to show off just how happy you’re feeling.
Magical moments in life happen all around us, and at any time. Make sure you’re wearing your best for them.
I have to let you in on a little secret. I'm slightly obsessed with taking vitamins. I have been for a long time, and it would be fair to say i'v definitely tried my fair share of products from different brands! For me, I absolutely believe in the power of taking vitamins, its been an actual life saver.
For as long as I can remember. Iv always suffered with a weaker than average immune system! Iv had check ups at the doctors and I am apparently the picture of health with nothing in particular to worry about. Its just one of those things. If there's a cold or flu going around... I'm very predictably going to get it.
But over the years iv learnt that there are a few things I can do to help myself. And taking vitamins is one of them. Its has been a real game changer. So when Pharmaton reached out to me, I was delighted. I'm always looking for new brands to try and their advance multi vitamin and minerals capsules are basically everything i'm looking for in a supplement.
The daily multivitamin and minerals contains Ginseng G115! It also contains vitamins B1, B2 and B3 each of which help unlock energy from food to contribute to your overall health and well-being
It Contains iron and zinc which each contributes to normal cognitive function, Vitamins B2, B3, B6 and B12 which each contribute to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue - Definitely high on my list, especially with all the travel my husband and I do.
It also contains vitamin A and Biotin each of which support the maintenance of normal skin, I'm already seeing an improvement in my skin after only 10 days!
And finally it contains selenium which contributes to the normal function of the immune system and the maintenance of normal hair and nails. Like I said, absolutely perfect for me.
I wanted to share this product because i'm really enjoying the benefits and know how over whelming it can be to find the right multi vitamin with all of the different brands on the market. Pharmaton for me has everything i'm looking for in one capsule making it super easy and simple to put into your daily routine. A total Winner!
