I first came across Diane Von Furstenburg when I watched ‘The City‘ featuring Whitney Port on MTV, I’m not even embarrassed to admit I was a massive fan of ‘The Hills’ back in the day I mean who wasnt right?! I love the colourful DVF offices, the backdrop of New York City and all the fashion involved in the show. A few years later DVF featured in a reality series shown on E! Entertainment here in the UK called ‘House of DVF‘ in the search for a new brand representative. I loved the show and the inspirational way Diane motivated the girls who were competing for the role. Last month I just happened to spot her book “The woman I wanted to be” on the shelf in my local library and I thought I would borrow it and read about her career in retail as that is my what my working background is also. Little did I know the book would be so much more than fashion…but a true inspirational read.
Match Made Perfect
When I was off last week I managed to escape out for some ‘Jillian time’ leaving the Hubby and daughter at home. To be fair I said the words ‘Dunelm Mill’ and the look of horror on Christophers face spoke volumes. Off I went to exchange bedding at Dunelm and call into Boots on the way home. I was due to get some make up but decided I wanted to try something different and after reading bazillions of blogs about Boots No 7 range I wanted to go in and speak to someone on the counter and get some advice.
I’ve religiously been wearing Estee Lauder Double Wear Light as it hardly feels like im wearing any foundation at all which I like. I am not a big make up fan in that I don’t wear a lot even when going out but I think that’s partly down to just not knowing what I suited and also all the effort that goes into it all. I have never been bothered with all the time it takes. Now that I rarely get out…thats an absolute lie we are spoilt rotten with grandparents wanting Olivia 24/7..beyond lucky.. I feel like now I would like to make more of an effort. It helps hide the tired mummy eyes too 🙂 BONUS!
