Get ready for the summer with Avon!

So this isn't the first time I've declared my love for Avon products (remember My Night Time Beauty Tips post?), and it certainly won't be my last - but I can't help sharing with you some of their bestsellers which will be seeing me through the summer months.

People can sometimes be a bit snooty about buying from Avon, which really frustrates me as the products are of a high quality - and yes, they are affordable! Not only do I buy lots of make up from them, but I've bought jewellery, accessories, bath products, hair products and things for the home in the past. If you've not bought from Avon before, you can either order online, or find a representative near you who will deliver to your door for free (which is great!) Find your local rep here.

It's so hard to choose my favourites, but in this post I have reviewed some of the top items which I will undoubtedly taking with me on holiday.

This Week's '-ings'

Hello! Happy bank holiday weekend! It's been a very busy week this week... But I've managed to sit down for a few minutes and scribble this week's '-ings'.

My Night Time Beauty Tips

Good evening! I don't know about you lot, but when it gets to the end of the day I usually feel like just falling into bed fully clothed and with all my make up on. But as we all know, this isn't a very good idea.

Over the last few months, I've developed a simple bedtime routine which takes no time at all, yet has made a nice difference to my skin, my energy levels and my beauty sleep. Today I thought I would share with you all some of my top tips!

This Week's '-ings'

It's Friday, woohoo! I'm sat snuggled up on the sofa while my boyfriend is cooking a yummy curry for dinner. Then it will be a night of telly for us after a long week of work.

It's time to share with my lovely blog readers this week's '-ings'... Hope you enjoy!

It's time to get (social) networking!

The Secret Life of Maggie May blog is still in its early days of life - a baby blog, if you like - but of course I could not delay any longer diving into the world of social networking and setting up some exciting new profiles.

Soooo... Any Facebook users, it's time to get a-Liking my new page!

Italian, baby!

Last night my partner and I decided to have dinner at our local Jamie's Italian, as my sparkly new Gold Club card had arrived in the post and we wanted to use it!

I'd eaten there once before and had a great time with some of my best girlfriends; we'd treated ourselves to Prosecco, crab & avocado bruschetta, chocolate brownies and Bellinis...yum. I was very excited to return.

So off we went, and we were delighted with the wonderful service from the second we walked in. It didn't take long for my Tom Collins to arrive.

Saturday Slutty Brownies

It's a Saturday, the weather is horrible outside, and this afternoon I had a major chocolate craving - or more specifically, a chocolate brownie craving.

The thing is, I'm feeling quite lazy today, and I couldn't really be bothered to bake anything from scratch. And that's when I suddenly remembered a fantastic recipe I found a couple of years ago on one of my favourite blogs, The Londoner: Slutty Brownies!

My Dress Wish List

We all have a wish list, don't we? Some people's may include new cars, or diamonds... Or maybe a lovely new house? I'll tell you what mine consists of: beautiful dresses.

So here's what I currently have my beady eye on....*

Tease those Tangles

My hair is fine - really fine. When I step out of the house in the mornings, my hair instantly ties itself in knots - and don't even get me started on how it gets when I wear scarves!

I'd simply accepted my tangly-haired fate, allowing extra time everyday to comb through my mid-length locks with a slight grimace on my face. And then, something amazing came along - a product which has cut my getting ready time down by about 15 minutes!
