Beauty Goodies Ren, L'Occitane,Elizabeth Arden

Hi guys. I don't know about you but the colder weather is really playing havoc with my skin. My normal skincare regime has to be changed a lot as the wind and cold is really making my skin feel really uncomfortable. Below please find the skincare products I have been using to try and comfort and take care of my skin.

                                            Clearcalm skin serum for night time by Ren
                                            Toner for sensitive skin by La Roche Posay

                         Sensitive skin cleanser by La Roche Posay. Smells wonderful!

A Chocolate mask for when skin is feeling a little congested.
This is an almond exfoliating soap that really can smooth skin and makes them feel soft. If you use hand cream after using this your skin will have double the reason to love you.
If skin is really in need of pampering then this is when I get this out. A rescue product for skin!

The Girl From Station X by Elisa Segrave. Review.

The Girl From Station X was a very interesting look into a mother's life through the eyes of her daughter and the diaries that she had written. We get to see Anne during many stages of her life and she experienced a lot that made interesting reading. I had been to a lot of the places mentioned in the book so reading this was extra special for me being able to picture where she was .
Anne travelled a lot in her life and had a very interesting work life in the famous Bletchley , she enjoyed life and family and friends but seemed to be a woman of many contradictions. Tragedy and illness were to touch Anne's life and it was sad reading about those moments but it gave me a very full view of a life from being a young woman to when she got older. Elisa's struggles with her mothers behaviour, and the lack of love she received from her come across very strongly and they have remained with me long after I have finished this book.  

I kindly received this book from for review. You can find this book on their website below .This  will be available for purchase from March 2014 on and all other good bookstores.
