And I gave my new trainers and coat a dry run yesterday to make sure they would work for me on the flight. I'm wearing different jeans and a choir branded shirt but apart from that, this is pretty much what I'm wearing to travel in:
Trainers - Adidas Superstars
Black Coat - NEW to me (from Deja Vu)
So yes, I've bitten the bullet and bought some Adidas Superstar trainers (along with a million other bloggers!)
and I wore them out this afternoon (after taking the labels off!) for a meeting at my son's school followed by Long's Fish & Chips for tea as a treat! It's a Belfast institution and it's been so long since we've been.
While I'm away, I've pre-prepared some blog posts and scheduled them to publish during the week.
They are a bit off-piste for me as they're about beauty - an area I don't touch on often but that's because I'm incredibly fussy about what I buy and use on my skin. I won't use just any old product on my skin and eschew anything made by the large cosmetic companies like Lancome, Garnier, Olay etc...they're FULL of chemicals, perfumes and empty promises. I urge you to google some of the ingredients if you are a regular user. They might give short term results but we have no idea what the longer term impact will be of layering parabens, petroleum and perfumes on our skin every day.
Additionally, when I find something that works, I stick with it. I would make the worst beauty blogger! All of the items I'm featuring have been tried and tested for a few months and most importantly, emptied and re-purchased (or about to be).
So sit back and switch on from tomorrow....I hope you enjoy my reviews and as always, ask if you've any questions.
