I have rarely seen the point of serums but times change, one gets older, fine lines appear and the inevitable happens. Serums have happened to me and I'm wondering why I waited so long. Whereas I'll spend a small fortune on Karl Lagerfeld branded cleansers, somehow I become a little more cautious about serums. They are just not that exciting and I have splashed out on the Clinique one and not seen any visible difference. So I decided to spend less.

I recently finished an Olay serum. This one:

I liked it very much. I mean, I finished it. It takes me forever to finish anything but I religiously used it every morning and it lasted a good three months or so. Seeing as how I liked it, I of course then replaced it with something else. This one:

As recommended by Sali Hughes in her Guardian column. It's ok, it's a bit runny which I find annoying. I prefer the Olay one and it was cheaper so lesson learned there.

Serums provide a great base and help moisturiser sink in better. I think of them like polyfilla.

Both are available at Boots.

Nail colour of the week

Sable Collar. It looks nothing, NOTHING like this picture. It's more of a shimmery taupe with some mauve going on. Great name.

Nail colour of the week

Essie's Mind Your Mittens which is a great name. I actually had this on last week and loved it - a grey/blue that surprisingly goes with pretty much anything I was wearing.

Marks and Spencer Moroccan Escape

January is a time for saving one's pennies after the excesses of Christmas. A time to lounge in hot bubble baths and read books. And I am here to tell you that this £4 bubble bath is a steal. It smells of oranges, it bubbles beautifully and I am loving it. There is a shower gel, oil and various other things in the range which I've not tried but I am stockpiling this.
