How to be Positive About a Second Lockdown - and Link Up


Is This Mutton blogger Gail Hanlon with Molly the cat

The UK scientific advisors Vallance and Whitty (which sounds like a 1950s department store) are warning that more draconian pandemic measures could be on their way, including a second national lockdown.  Half of the UK is already in various forms of lockdown.

All Dressed Up and Nowhere To Go: Style Not Age Challenge

 Is This Mutton's Gail Hanlon in office chic: what she used to wear to meet the ad agency. Max Mara jacket, Vivienne Westward skirt, black boots and cream pearl collar top

It's the last Monday of the month and time for September's Style Not Age Challenge, set by Jacqui with the theme All Dressed Up and Nowhere To Go.  My days of dressing up, even with somewhere to go, are behind me so I  played with the theme as "All dressed up and no office to go to."

L'Aves - Luxurious Vegan Skincare


Products from the L'AVES vegan skincare ranges reviewed by Is This Mutton blog


L'AVES is a new British skincare range which offers something that most vegan brands don't:  a touch of luxury.  I find a lot of vegan beauty products perform perfectly well but they lack the scents, the delicate textures and the feeling of indulgence when you look at the packaging and then apply them. Not so with this gorgeous brand.

Rejuvenation in the Lake District - and Link Up

Rejuvenation in the Lake District with UK blog Is This Mutton
I'm back after my two week staycation and fully rejuvenated. In the first week I spent a few days in Plymouth with my mum - there'll be more in my Sentence a Day post to be published on 6 October. For the second week, we drove the long distance to the Lake District, in the north of England.
