Christmas came early.
This month The Body Shop kindly sent me two Christmas gifts sets Body Butter Stars of the Forest and Festive Hand Cream Trio.
Perfect as a Chrisutmas gift or stocking filler.

I think Body Butter gift set is perfect for me because you have 5 different pots with body butter, I’m a big lover of all skin care after nice and long bath.

Check my Instagram - The Body Shop insta story (@elmartina) for direct links to the gift sets.

Christmas came early!! 

Christmas is just round the corner and The Body Shop created very festive bath and body products such as this Peppermint candy cane line. Smells delicious! 
You can grab it for yourself or maybe this is great idea for someones Christmas present - Festive Sack of Peppermint Candy Cane Delights (cost only £18 - worth every single penny) 

Also this month I have received (I was looking forward to this) advent calendar. My first thought was, I'm going to wait until December but Lewis wanted to open it ASAP. I let him open every single box, his face was priceless. His excitement opening every single box was unremarkable. As you can see on picture below there is lots of body products with I'm very pleased about because I go trough them very quickly. I think there is 3 different The Body Shop advent calendars, link attached.

Brasserie Blanc - Hale Barns

Beginning of this week I was dining at brand new Brasserie Blanc restaurant within the newly refurbished Manchester Airport Marriott Hotel in Hale Barns.

Iconic French restaurant serves delicious home - cooked french food  with a contemporary international flavor inspired by Raymonds Blanc travels.  

Cosy and modern deco mixed with the botanical details makes you feel very relaxed and homely. 
The atmosphere was lovely, everyone was very friendly and we had really good night.   

For the starter I ordered vegetable summer rolls - fresh veggies wrapped in rice paper roll and soy dipping sauce, chilies in sauce gives a slight kick to this starter.

For my main course I went for filet steak. Steak was cooked to perfection, I'm a bit fussy regards to how I like my steak but this one was just perfect. 

Desert! I could't go home without ordering a desert!  I overheard sitting behind me couple who  compliment pistachio souffle and I had to order the same thing. I think I was in pistachio heaven ha

Thank you Brasserie Blank for having me

Today's post is about our stay at Crewe Hall in Cheshire, only hour away from Manchester ,where we live. 
We came a little bit to earl, I set off early because you never know how the journey with 3 and half years old could go ;)  Yes, soo we was a little bit too early to check in, ended up having a glass of orange juice and lovely gentlemen brought Lewis board games and coloring books to play with, how nice was that?!?! Lewis is very active kid and having all the games and coloring books kept him occupied until we got our room ready. 

Someone was one happy boy, he jump on the bed straight away and play with made of a hand -towel teddy :) 

Then we went out for a little wonder around the mansion and garden.

Then we was off for our dinner. As all parents could relate to this, going out with little ones for something to eat could be tricky... most of the times kids are fussy and don't want to eat wheat ever they (parents ;) ) ordered. 
Crewe Hall offer menu for little ones, this was very handy for me because Lewis had pizza on his mind all day....just see the picture below...haha

To top the day we come back to our hotel room to a glass of milk and cookie :) 
What else little ones could ask for before their bedtime?!?!?!

Breakfast time, we left it until late,.....well we didn't want to get up early because our beds was very comfortable. 
I let Lewis choose his breakfast, wanted him to feel like this trip is all about him. Of course he went for cereal with chocolate chips flakes and freshly squeezed orange juice. 

Obviously we took some mummy and son silly pictures too  ;)

Lets just take a stunning is this 16th century mansion?!?!

Soo that's all for now and BIG THANK YOU CREWE HALL for having us, we had amazing time and we defiantly going to come back shortly.

As you probably already know, following my instagram, I shared the news couple days ago that I'm The Body Shop beauty ambassador for intu Trafford Centre branch!!!!  I'm over the moon and I cannot describe how happy I'm. I shop in Trafford Centre often ;) and this place is very close to my heart soo that's why this is even more special. The Body Shop had a shopfit not long time ago and looks amazing, I will post some pictures soon on my insragram. 

Right, lets talk about the products.
 All the products are new to me and I'm looking forward  to see the results especially using these two drops of youth concentrate and fresh emulsion . Both products are 100% vegan, helps defend skin from damaging UVA and UVB rays, both are easy absorbing and skin feels fresh and looks radiant

Next product that I want to talk to you is (are) face masks. My skin is very sensitive and I need to be very careful what product I'm using. These three are different and great for my type of skin. I think the last one (Himalayan charcoal) is my favorite because gives you this glow look afterwards. 

Who doesn't like bananas?!?!?!  I have very dry hair after colouring them every month and I needed something to keep them nourished, fragrant and softer.

Oh hello Honey Bronze!! This small pot of goodness is my everyday saver. I'm using it as a highlighter on my cheekbones, eye shadow and also on top of nude lipstick. 

Bloggers favorite - Shea nourishing body butter - there is nothing better after hot bath or shower to cover yourself in this body butter, skin feels softer, fresher and nourished. This product is perfect for my type of skin (mentioned before I have very dry skin) because gives you intensely moisturize (48hrs) 

Almond milk body yogurt - another good product for dry skin, product absorbs instantly and provides up to 48hrs of moisture, is 100% vegan.  

Camomile sumptuous cleansing butter - everything what you need to clean your face after all tiring day at work. This product is suitable for sensitive skin and contact with contact lens wearers and removes all types of makeup. 

If you guys have any questions feel free to drop me a email or catch me on instagram 

Kisses, Martyna
