Fashions Fondest Fancy & Flu

Monday, 3 February 2014

Hey Pretty Peeps,

I am really hoping you have all escaped this seasons colds and flu but if you haven't and are in the midst of the Day Nurse/Night Nurse Cycle this is for you...

Firstly DRINK! Now I don't recommend Lemsip as it tastes synthetic, but my Auntie swears by lemon, honey and ginger in hot water which is really refreshing. I also love green tea with mint which again just feels really clean.

They do say 'Feed a fever, starve a cold' my fave treat is home made chicken soup and fresh bread toast - add a real kick of pepper to the soup to help it blast through the congestion.

I have always believed eat what you fancy but now is a good time to keep your energy up, this banana cake tastes gorgeous, is a little bit naughty but will certainly give you a pick me up.

The recipe I used can be found here: http://allrecipes.co.uk/m/recipe/8729/easy-banana-cake.aspx

When you do manage to make it out of bed these two products will save tired eyes and sore noses :

Clarins Skin Smoothing Eye Mask £24.40 Gorgeous Shop

Is so gentle and rich I applied this before I had a shower and then removed the excess. Soothing and not overly fragranced this is just the ticket for watery eyes.

What Clarins say:

Up all night? This is the treatment to reach for. Clarins intensive, 5-minute spa mask energises tired eyes—minimising signs of fatigue and stress. A refreshing blend of Wild Rose, Apricot and Rose Water helps decongest, smooth and tone eye contours for an immediate feeling of well-being. 

I got this as a sample size when I bought other Clarins bits...what a chance selection!

Secondly, Lucas Pawpaw Ointment £5.25 from the Pawpaw store online

I used this throughout my pregnancy as a lip balm, stretch mark precaution, elbow smoother you name it! But in this instance it is perfect for round the nose.

Now, just hole yourself up with your ipad, a few horror films to reassure you that you could look worse and enough pillows to make the Princess and the Pea's bed look like a futon...

Keep well everyone!
