Autumn picnic

Melbourne is so beautiful at the moment and the trees are particularly lovely - golden and red hues everywhere which makes Autumn my favourite time of the year.

Over last weekend we went up to the Dandenong ranges (about 45 mins from us) and took a picnic. There is something really fun I think about a 'non summer' picnic !! The weather was cool but crisp and sunny and we also have a special visitor from England. My 80 year old father arrived on Friday evening and it's so nice to have him here staying with us.
Here he is having just arrived at Melbourne Airport. Sophie my niece on the left.

Below pics of the picnic - ham rolls and hot soup!

More of that same view... Just beautiful.

Hope you are enjoying what ever season you are in according to the hemisphere! 
Happy Days!

Loving this new cleanser

This was my preferred cleanser of choice; that was when I bought it duty free or in Europe or when I felt like splashing out..... Worked well, very refreshing and a clear liquid. You use it straight onto a cotton wool pad and wipe gently over the face. Amazing how much grime and dirt always seem to appears on those pads!  


Anyway, lately I have become extremely attached to this cleanser below.  About a third of the price of the Lancome one and works exactly the same.... Clear cleansing liquid onto a cotton pad and then wiped gently over the face. Removes all trace of makeup including eye makeup. It has a very lovely light fragrance and makes my skin feel super smooth and clear.

Definitely recommend this product!! 
               (*Best price I have found for it in Australia is in Chemist Warehouse where it's around $23). 

Have you tried either product?  Or do you have a favourite that you swear by?

A great weekend to everyone.
