Five Must-Have Travel Essentials

Five Must-Have Travel Essentials

I recently went on a South Pacific cruise and it was one of the most wonderful holidays I have ever experienced. I hadn’t ‘cruised’ before so wasn’t sure what to expect; and I was not disappointed.

Elegant Eliza New Repairlift Skincare

There are so many skincare options available it’s sometimes hard to fight your way through all the promotional spiel and flashy advertising. I am often sent products to try and l like to give them at least a couple of weeks use before I decide whether I like them or not.

Promoted as a ‘repairlift’ range I was keen to try the honey and royal jelly based selection of skincare. As the Elegant Eliza story goes,…
