Time for some pampering treats, methinks

School starts again next week for us, and I don’t know about you but I’m definitely due some little Mum treats.

Here’s what’s on my list:

John Richmond’s new fragrance – it smells yummy, really fresh with notes of red grapefruit, pear, magnolia and sandalwood. And it also comes with a darling little bracelet (you can hang the lock on it). Gorgeous! (£34 for 30ml, available from Next)

I’m a HUGE fan of Elemis and I adore their Exotic Frangipani Monoi Moisture Melt (£29, available from timetospa) – really nourishes the skin and the scent is incredible.

The Natio range of natural mineral bronzing products, available exclusively from Debenhams – the illuminating powder (£19) is perfect for giving your complexion a healthy looking glow.

And I’m going to treat my poor neglected nails to some TLC and polish – I love the Essential colours from M&S, particularly the Baby Blue and Neon Yellow (£2.50 each). Maybe not the first colour you’d think of but it works.
