Beauty: exploring HA masks and rose and violet delights

We need more rose! Is This Mutton? reviews Argan Moroccan Rose day cream
This month I've been trying another hyaluronic acid face mask, a rose scented day cream from the supermarket, the Marks and Spencer Summer Box and two products I'd never thought of trying - mainly because I perceive them as "too cheap"!

More ways with a gingham skirt

Styling a gingham skirt with a cashmere cardigan for cooler summer nights and with Converse trainers for a casual look
I've been getting good wear out of my gingham skirt this summer. You first saw it here, although I didn't keep that skirt in the end, it had too much fabric. Instead I went for one from Marks and Spencer, which is featured today and also here on holiday. 
A cropped cashmere cardi, in many colours from Boden, is a warm alternative to a top as the weather inevitably gets cooler.
Fuchsia pink is definitely one of my favourite colours, and now that we've passed the Summer Solstice and August is nearly here, we'll soon be needing cardigans and sweaters. So I paired the skirt with a cropped cashmere cardigan from Boden and pink sandals with silver block heels from Topshop. Bag from Asos, sunglasses Ray-Ban, necklace Topshop.
For an evening prom in the park, a cashmere cropped cardi is ideal along with block heeled sandals and your favourite sunglasses

Black and white gingham goes with anything, and fuchsia pink is always a striking colour to choose. Pair it with a white clutch and block heeled pink sandals.
I saw one of the younger bloggers wearing Converse with her gingham skirt, so I thought I'd try it. To be honest this is a look that will never really work on me because my legs are not slender enough. I'm wearing another item which has more than proved its value this summer, my white denim jacket* from Bonmarché, and some long gold chains.
