a fresh start

I'll try and keep this is short and sweet as possible. For a variety of reasons I have decided to no longer blog here at My Lincolnshire Lifestyle. I want to say a massive thank you to all 342 of you that currently follow me, and for you to know you haven't quite got rid of me.

I have set up and opened a new blog http://fashionsuede.blogspot.com and there is a very lengthy introduction on that blog explaining why I have decided to move. I hope some of you will take the time to read it, and hopefully it sounds interesting enough for you to re-follow me over there.

Also with this move comes a few other new accounts:
twitter - @fashionsuede

I really cannot thank you all enough for your devotion to reading my posts and commenting for the past two years. I don't want you to feel like I don't appreciate you, because I really do. I will leave this blog up for a few months, until the view hits become low and I feel it is time for it to be deleted.

The Ultimate Product Rave!

For as long as I can remember, I have always suffered with dry skin. It gets very bad in the winter and means after just a few hours wear my foundation appears flaky and uneven. I have tried endless moisturisers that claim to "hydrate" or "quench" dry skin, but nothing ever really worked. And then I found this product.

I first got a sample of the Neutrogena deep clean invigorating daily scrub in a magazine about a year ago now and I really liked how the beads left my skin feeling super soft, but for some reason it wasn't until about two or three months ago that I actually picked up a bottle of it from superdrug.

Not only did this product completely solve my dry skin problem but it also helped to just clear up any blemishes that I had. I love that it has a very menthol feeling on the skin so you feel fresh and awake after using it. I also find that I don't have to use this every day. With some products, if you don't use them daily, you skin can breakout or return to it's original state but with this Neutrogena scrub I feel like the results last for day.

I just honestly cannot rave about this product enough and I think if you suffer from dry flakey skin it is 100% worth a try. Although it is marketed at "Invigorating" I don't find the product harsh on the skin if you are using it daily and it also doubles up as a great make-up remover as it literally scrubs away everything :)

You can pick this product up from Superdrug for £3.56 here and earn 30 beautycard points :)

Summer Nails

Back in December I created this post of my favourite winter/fall nail polishes. It seemed like a few people were interested in that post so I decided to create one for the summer months now that it is August :)

For me, Barry M nail paints are a winner no matter what season it is. They are super affordable, come in such a great range of colours, dry quickly and look really professional when they are on. For summer I have picked the shades:
- Black Magic (the crackle polish)
-Blueberry Ice Cream
- Mint Green
- Matt White
- Pink Flamingo

Essie in Sand Tropez
Essie in Van D'Go
Collection 2000 in Hoola Hoop
Nails inc for InStyle in Candy Orange
Avon Nailwear Pro in Sunshine

As always, if you would like to see swatches of any of these colours then just leave a comment and I will try to get it done for you.
