I first got my mitts on this pretty pinky-gold round pot of skin goodness just before I went off to South Africa at the beginning of January. I was kindly sent it from the brand Caudalie, who were also generous enough to pop in a tube of sun protection for my trip to sunnier climes (oh, how I miss thee sunshine). At first, I wondered whether I should wait to try it when I returned home, after all, my skin was about to be sabotaged by sun, sea and excessive alcohol and carb consumption. Surely, I thought, any products were not going to shine when up against that gamut of complexion wreckers? Well. I thought wrong. So very, very wrong!
Ok, I’ve nearly eaten all of the Christmas leftovers and I’ve packed away the baubles and tinsel, so I guess it’s time to start looking at the New Year with a Feel Fantastic rather than Feel Flabtastic attitude. Having learnt from experience, I’m not one to go hell for leather with the resolutions as I think going extreme just sets you up to fail. And we’ve all written that list, haven’t we? You know the one…
- Lose 2 stone
- Change out of dog walking clothes into stylish clothes every day (and by smart I don’t mean ironed pyjamas)
- Run 10 miles 3 times a week
- Eat kale not cake
- Brush hair every day
- Only drink wine at weekends
I mean, how on earth is any of that ever realistically going to happen in my life? Instead, I am going to focus on attainable goals in 2017 that may not give me that Instagram worthy body I will always secretly covet, but it will give me a healthier, happier outlook on life and that’s what’s important.
