A Close Shave

Welcome back lovely readers!

I hope you've all had a wonderful couple of weeks. I have been a very, very busy bee both at work and at home (as per...) and have been making the most of the beautiful sunny weather we've been having.

The sun deciding to make an appearance in our lives has led to this post, as it's that dreaded time of year when the unthinkable becomes reality; my legs have emerged from hibernation. It's been simply too warm for thick, black tights at work and walking the dog now requires a suitable uniform of its own.

Whilst I know that shaving is not the most sustainable form of leg grooming, I have neither the inclination nor bank balance for waxing and a severe lack of patience when it comes to hair removal creams, so every couple of days my pins get the old scrape. I've had an ongoing love-hate relationship with razors and leg products, as I always seem to get an angry red rash no matter how much prep and priming I do. It's taken me a fair while, but I think I've cracked the perfect Close Shave formula; please see below...

Fresh Faced for Spring

Welcome back lovely readers!

It's been far too long since I did a beauty post, so here I go with a jam packed Spring feature.

#brightandshiny: March

Welcome back lovely readers!

Apologies for my blogging absence; I've been incredibly busy at work and at home which leaves very little time for blogging.

However, I've finally found myself alone with my laptop so really, there's no excuse.

March has been a pretty quiet, steady month in the Holvast household. Despite being swamped with work in the office and having various chores to catch up on, we've being just tootling along quite nicely.
