This is how I'd like to look this weekend. As if I'm off for a super-chic ramble, decked out in a lovely cable knit sweater and wool pants, with a rucksack full of flapjacks. And I'd add these elegant lace-ups from Rae Jones:
The combination of burgundy and camel is very fine. Rich, warm berry colours flatter a wintry complexion and make an excellent autumn neutral. For a special occasion, I might even Gucci-things-up by wearing Bordeaux with teal.
Talking of berries, I've been taking an anti-ageing elixir by Cosmetofruit. The phrase 'Drink your way to beautiful skin' grabbed my attention, at last I thought, my kind of beauty regime. Containing grape and blueberry, the elixir tastes fruity and delicious, and it comes with a special metal spoon-type thingy so that you can measure the recommended 4-ml daily serving. So, I've been drinking it for the last six weeks and have to say that, relatively speaking, I'm looking healthier than I usually do at this time of year. My skin has more of a glow - same amount of wrinkles, but I'm not quite so pasty - and it also seems to work as a hangover cure!
I've never tried an elixir before, have you?
