Eclectic Eccentricity

So... as I promised more posts!!

Don't you love it when your window shopping online and you come across a new website with some fantastic products. Well today that happened! I came across Eclectic Eccentricity, beautiful jewellery at a really good price. They are designed by Lucy Averill "Combining a love for unique and varied pieces with a hefty dose of fun, the collections are as different as the name (which combine's two of Lucy's favourite words in the English language)." Below are my favorite items in the collection...

I'm sure you will agree these are beautiful pieces, all of the pieces look like they have a story to be told and I love that. Don't get me wrong I love high street jewellery but it's so nice to come across a new brand with a bit of character. I can't decide if I should buy the bracelet or the Twittering Vintage Necklace. Either way it will have to wait until payday as I have been shopping mad this month.

Let me know what you think to the range and which is your favorite :-)

So firstly this is a sorry, I haven't wrote in a while. Slapped wrists on my part, I have an excuse as I was moving house and the Internet was cut off.

Anyway let's get back to business, since getting back from my holiday I have been keeping my tan up to date. This is where I get to tell you about the best product tanning product I have come across. I found it on Lollipop26 blog, she was raving about it so I thought I'd give it ago last summer, since then I haven't used anything else.

Introducing St Moritz -

From what I have been told this product has the same ingredients as St Tropez but is a fraction of the price, I picked my bottle up at local beauty store but you can buy it at Fragrance Direct for £2.99. The product is a mousse so I really recommend using a tanning mitt to ensure even coverage.

After the normal routine of exfoliating and moisturising this product is so easy to apply, what I normally find with self tan is that you can't see where you have applied it. This tans you immediately and then develops the skin during the day, I recommend applying before bed. Leave to dry before getting in to bed then have a shower in the morning, this will take off the immediate colour you see but will have developed in your skin leaving you golden brown.

I haven't had any streaking from this product, I really can't recommend it highly enough, I have bought it for all my friends and for £2.99 you should really give it a try!

That's all for now, I will try and add some pictures of the tan on me later this week.

Take care
