Beauty Must Have - Bach Rescue Cream

I have heard so many bloggers saying that one of the things they love is the chance to try out products that they otherwise wouldn't have heard of - it's true this is a great part of blogging, although in this case I have been trying out a product that I knew of, but would never have thought of buying before.

I was very kindly sent a selection of products from the Nelson's Pure and Clear and Bach Rescue range to sample, and would happily recommend them all. I might nitpick at the shape of the Rescue Lip Balm pot, or the number of wipes (which seemed to go quite quickly) in the Pure and Clear range, but overall my complexion is happier, and although I can't erase what hormones do to my face at times, the effects have been reduced.

But I'm blogging because I wanted to give some space to the Bach Rescue cream, which for me stood out among the products I was sent. Just like other products in the range it uses a combination of 5 flower essences along with other ingredients and moisturisers. The packaging suggests it's aimed at dry, rough, sensitive skin, but this product is about soothing as well as re hydrating, and that is something other skin types will welcome.

It claims to be non greasy, and is, and quickly absorbs into the skin. This is actually the second tube I've had, having reviewed it ages ago for something else, and my first tube lasted absolutely ages, so a little does go a really long way.

With all the cold and dreary weather we've been having recently it's been my go to when my skin felt a bit dry and weather beaten, and it's also helped on a few occasions when I've done something silly like catch my hair straighteners on my face, or had some skin irritation. I know that some products I've got haven't really made much difference, or are a bit too harsh for what I wanted them for, but this one does the job.

Find out more about the Nelson's brands featured in this blog at their website. Bach Rescue Cream is readily available from Boots, Holland and Barrett, and independent pharmacies.

Action Themed Handmade Card - Daring Cardmakers Challenge

Hi Everyone, Hope you're all having a good week! Just want to say thanks to all of you that have been reading and commenting on my blog posts, especially the recent craft ones, joining in with the Daring Cardmakers challenges. I don't always have time to blog along, but this week the theme was 'action', and it was the perfect excuse to make a card with a topper kit I have had laying around for ages. The card I made is perfect for sports fans of all ages, and as a big diving fan, I'm sure this one will be a lot of fun for all. My main image and some of the extra bits are from a Hunkydory kit, I just love the image of the guy diving and his reflection shown in the water.  Copyright 2017 - These City Days I found some aperture cards in my stash and I'm enjoying decorating round the edges and adding some dimension to the designs. This time I went for a few sentiments, stars punched from holographic card, and some jute twine from Baker Ross.  I am slight

Cake Of The Week - Weetabix Loaf Cake (Guest Post)

  Have you had your Weetabix?!   As promised in last week's post, I bring you a healthy cake ( well as healthy as cake can be!) that is full of fibre, uses no fat, contains one of your five a day, and is as cheap as chips to make. Has my fab marketing pitch sold it to you yet? The quirk to this recipe? The main ingredient is that old breakfast favourite, Weetabix! I can almost see a few noses wrinkle up but please don't let this put you off. This is a lovely moist, fruity bake with a slightly chewy outer that sits perfectly with a teatime cuppa, and is great for lunch boxes as it travels really well.   I would definitely recommend giving this bake a whirl to share with your nearest and dearest. Don't spill the beans about the main ingredient and see if anyone can guess!   For this week's bake you will need the following equipment:  a 2lb loaf tin, baking paper, a mixing bowl,  a wooden spoon and a teaspoon.   Ingredients: 3 Weetabix biscuits ( own

Daring Cardmakers - Trim The Tree Craft Challenge - Cross Stitch Card

Hi Everyone, It's the start of another week, and I'm fresh from seeing some of my favourite musical friends, for the first time in a long while, at our Christmas light switch on. I have some video, but I have never edited video clips in my life, so while I figure out what I'm doing, time to catch up on some other blog posts. I have joined in and submitted craft projects to the Daring Cardmakers Challenge before, and it's been great fun. So I just want to thank everyone who has commented on my previous posts, and add to this weeks challenge 'Trim The Tree'. I am working my way through a few small cross stitch kits from magazine free gifts, and this tree design really stuck out from my stash. It was easy and fun to stitch, and I even tweaked it a bit to add some gold glitter for the star at the top. Instead of hanging it in the supplied aperture card though, I found a plant pot topper with 25 on, and mounted it on a card just above that. The finished car
