Food Friday : Grouse & Claret, Derwent Manor, Durham

Hello Lovelies, 

On Sunday, we took ourselves off up the A68 to Allensford, home of Derwent Manor Hotel, for a tasty anniversary lunch. We dined in the Claret & Grouse bar, rather than the in-house Guinevere Restaurant.

Set on a hillside looking out over beautiful rolling countryside, Derwent Manor calls 20 acres of greenery its home. The views from the car park are just stunning. It makes me proud to be from County Durham!

Burts Bees Sensitive Facial Towelettes

Hello Lovelies, 

Every skincare guru may cringe every time someone praises face wipes but I firmly believe that they have their own time and place. End of.

I have to rely on them quite often if I am rushing between jobs or pulling an all nighter on site then in to client visits. Let’s not even forget how handy they are for travel and festivals.

As they are a staple in my facial arsenal, the sensitive towelettes from Burts Bees are packed with Cotton extract to soften the skin, Rice extract to moisturise your skin and Aloe to calm it. These are 3 things I certainly benefit from, when using the wipes.

Not only are they super kind to my skin, they can handle removing a full face of long wear make up, heavy eye make up and lippie. They are very refreshing on the skin for freshening up.

The pack also has a very feint, pretty greyscale design of a flower on it, my photos haven't picked this up at all! Boo!

The wipes come in a huge bumper resealable 30 pack priced at £5.99 and available from Burts Bees directly HERE

Our 8th Wedding Anniversary

Hello Lovelies, 

Today is a special day in Tramp Towers. It is our 8th wedding anniversary. 

We may have been together for 13yr, but 8yrs ago today, I married my best friend. I love him so much, I've married him twice after we renewed our vows in Las Vegas with Elvis.

He brings out the very best in me and is the perfect compliment to my very being and I couldn't imagine my life without him.

Paul, I love you more than salty chips.
