Deichmann Graceland Long Boots





Hi Loves

It took me a while to finally give up my flip flops this year, as you know I hate winter and everything associated to being cold, I usually have two seasons when it comes to footwear, Summer and Uggs, I spend every winter in a new pair of Uggs and have done for about 8 years ! I go for comfort, which as I explained to my Grandaughter the other day is a sure sign of getting old !  Gone are the days when I would limp in agony with new footwear thinking I looked good :) 



That's all great  unless you want to look a bit smarter while still staying warm, my fur topped tan boots don't really look great with black tights and a dress LOL.



Ha !  my problem is now solved, I have the BEST pair of boots ever that literally I have not stopped wearing since they arrived, Deichmann Online solved the problem, the boots I chose are from the Graceland Range and are quite simply a shock to my system, I expected them to hurt,  I have a love/ hate with new footwear, whilst I buy tons of new shoes they very rarely get past one wear when I decide I don't have the will power or patience to break them in.  These boots however, where a joy from the first outing, no pain, discomfort, blisters, nothing !


They are quite a strange material, a kind of mix of suede and microfibre, whatever it is it's seriously warm even with bare feet, waterproof and any marks just simply wipe off with a damp cloth to have them looking brand new again.



This design have two zips, a main boot zip and an outer zip that you can open to reveal a pattern insert should you wish, or if you need the boots a bit wider on the calf, they do however come in both regular and wide fittings which is handy as a lot of boots don't.  I must be doing something right, I even got " Oh Nan I love your boots where are they from ? "  from a 21 year old......... go me :)

Do you love or hate Winter ?  I would love to know your thoughts.

Happy walking Lyn x

Hiya Darlins

Hair loss, is it a thing that we only associate with Men ? I think that often it is and we overlook the fact that it can happen to women of any age at any time, for a number of different reasons, as you may recall from previous posts I have mentioned that my eldest daughter in her 40's is suffering from thinning of her hair, fortunately we are blessed with thick hair, so hers is not noticeable to anyone other than her, but it has been falling out by the handful every time she brushes or washes her hair, having taken tests at the GP it was diagnosed that she was lacking in Vitamin D and has been taking his now for months, with the hair situation staying pretty much the same.

Talk about timing, I was offered an opportunity to try out FolliOne a product range specifically designed for hair loss, I of course, could not have tested the product properly, but I knew a girl who could, and my daughter was keen to try anything that may help and proceeded with a month trial of two products from the FolliOne range.

 FolliOne Anti Hair Loss Shampoo.

This product smells really fresh and clean, and there is a distinct *tingle* when using it, the downside is that is like washing your hair in washing up liquid, it is not a conditioning treatment, so you do need to follow with a conditioner, my daughter say's  one of the real advantages to this shampoo is that while she usually washes her hair every day, and obviously sheds a ton of hair daily,  this product allowed her to go 3 days without washing her hair and says she could actually have gone longer, this in itself is slowing down the shedding process.  Said to stimulate the follicles to produce a clean scalp and hair growth, that will be the tingle :)

These products are not tested on animals.

FolliOne DHT Scalp Therapy for Men. 

The packaging reads, not to be used by women, but I was assured that it was safe and the product package was designed with men in mind.

A spray pump  bottle of liquid that is labelled for men that claims to;


Regrow Hair with FolliOne Extra Strength Growth Stimulator for Men: Safe Alternative to Minoxidil. Clinical Study Showed 66% Increased Hair Growth in 5 Months, Stronger than 5% Minoxidil Products.

This liquid she found easy to apply with no nasty after effects, she says it didn't look or feel greasy on the hair and in fact no one would know you are using it.

Conclusion:  Bearing in mind that it has only been a month, there were definitely results, I am not saying she has Rapunzel length hair now, BUT there are small signs of improvement with the growth of baby hair, and the shedding has definitely minimised, it is recommended to use this on a regular monthly basis, and I can only imagine that the longer you use the products the better the long term result.

Hiya Beautiful
As a regular reader of this blog you will know already that I am partial to a supplement, as much as I love my skin care and make up, I do think that if you can work from from the inside you are giving yourself a fighting chance to do all that you can to look after yourself.

With that in mind I am just at the end of a four week course of taking Seven Seas Perfect Woman 7, designed specifically to work on the seven things most important to us as we age.


Seven Seas Perfect 7 Woman

EPA & DHA for heart health
Vitamin B6 for Hormonal activity.


Seven Seas Perfect 7 Woman

Plus Natural Source Marine Oil with Omega 3

The one month pack contains 30 tablets of vitamins and minerals plus 30 tablets of Marine Oil. A complete one month supply.

Do I feel better for taking them ?  not really, BUT I do feel better for knowing that I am giving my body all of these vitamins and minerals that diminish with age. I think we owe it to ourselves to at least try and look after our bodies from the inside, bearing in mind you only get one :)



I have just discovered these at a ridiculously cheap price on a Black Friday deal.  saving over £4.00 per pack, could well be worth stocking up.

Hope Fashion

Hope Fashion
Is this not the perfect Christmas Day dress from Hope Fashion ?




Hiya My Loves

I am really hoping that you have never heard of Hope Fashion ( unlikely) but I am so excited about this brand I want to share something new with you.

Here's the thing, when was the last time you bought something that you 100% knew was going to be the very best quality, would fit perfectly without hesitation and was probably more comfortable than sitting around in your dressing gown ?   my guess is never ! 
 I love clothes but hate shopping, having put on **** amount of pounds this last year, through medical steroids and over eating I have to admit to not being very happy with my weight and shape, in truth, nothing new there, after hitting 30 it has been a constant battle.  Buying clothes has become a bit of a hit and miss affair for me with more misses than hits if I am honest, and what is designed to make you feel good often has the complete opposite effect and leaves you feeling fat n frumpy.


Hope Fashion
Hope Fashion Tube Skirt


In steps Hope to the rescue, before I send you dashing off to have a look at the website, I want to just simply give you the reasons why I love the brand so much.  I started out with a couple of basics from Hope in the form of a pair of black leggings and a long tube skirt, OK I can hear you yawning and thinking .......and ?   well these are not just any old leggings or any old skirt, they are honestly the MOST comfortable items I own currently, the idea of the tube skirt for me, was not to wear as an actual skirt, although of course you could, with having a lil extra junk in the trunk I like to keep it covered, and this skirt pops over leggings and covers and lumps and bumps that you may want to keep hidden, the fabric is so smooth, stretchy and thick it act's as a smoother, not sure if that is actually a word, but that's what it does, smooths and flatters,  you can wear it, long, mid length or as I often do, doubled over, or just ruched as an over leggings mini,  while talking of leggings, you will never ever experience comfort like a pair of Hope leggings, again they have the ability to look smooth, non see through like many often do, and just fit perfectly.

When it comes to fit, Hope really do have this one in the bag, they don't believe one size fits all, or that we should be defined by a number, nope, with hope you get three sizing options that are just flipping perfection, so if you gain a bit or lose a bit you don't need to go out and buy new clothing.

  They do say we should have wardrobe staples, well these two items from Hope have definitely become mine, once something is this comfortable and easy to wear, why wouldn't you keep reaching for it ?


Hope Fashion
Hope Fashion Drape Jersey Top


I also have the Drape Jersey Top in Grey Marl, that just pops over, again covering the junk and is just the most comfortable thing on the planet to wear.  This clothing is just so easy to wash and wear, it comes up like new with every wash and no colour fading.

  I have nothing but 100% praise for this Company, from ordering to  confirmed delivery dates and times, to wearing and washing, it is all a sheer joy.

Who knew that one product could do so much ?

  Murad, that's who..when they launched this little bottle of goodness I wonder if they knew it would turn into an award winner.

You can read my previous thoughts on Murad skincare HERE

Murad Invisiblur Protecting Shield offers multiple benefits making it really good value for money overall.

Blurring effect to minimise the look of fine lines and pores.

Broad spectrum SPF 30 saving the use of additional SPF creams

Shitake Mushroom and Mucor Miehei Peptides to stimulate collagen production in the skin.

Barley, Sunflower and Cucumber extracts are used to enhance the skin's ability to attract and retain moisture by mimicking the skin's membrane structure.

This really is much much more than a simple blurring product which is usually purchased as an add on to your skincare routine, It works well alone or over your usual skincare, leaving the skin literally feeling like silk with an even smooth matte base for foundation, no need for primer, I found that as my skin is mature and tends to err on the dry side, I needed moisturiser underneath to make the effects last all day and simply used Murad Perfecting Day Cream, so my skincare for the day was complete in two simple steps, if you are someone that wants great looking skin without all the faff of layering multiple products then this is definitely for you. It is both a time and money saver, I personally love it ! I am actually desperate to use this on my next Summer holiday, how perfect to have a matte finish face with complete SPF coverage, instead of a shiny greasy face by the pool :)

Murad is one of those brands that you just know you can trust and put complete faith in, no frills, bells or whistles are needed with this brand, you know where you are with every product. 



Love n Hugs
