It’s Friday and we’ve got our party pants on 💃🏻 (well, technically we didn’t take this photo today, and technically our party pants are jogging bottoms tonight). But, if you’re not a fan of dresses and skirts, we can definitely recommend these black high-waisted trousers and dressy pleather treggings - both from @zara. L & G x
Jest weekend, jest ekscytacja?
U mnie zdecydowanie! Jutro w pracowni będę gościć dwie fantastyczne, piękne dziewczyny. Będziemy robić naturalne, kobiece makijaże i opowiem Wam na co zwracać uwagę, kiedy się malujecie. Koniecznie zaglądajcie jutro na Stories. Będzie się działo!
🥬 ENature’s Squeeze Green Watery Serum has been really kind to my skin now that the temperature has dropped! I’ve been using it almost every night for the past two months and I feel like it deeply hydrates my skin and makes it super plump and glowy. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🥬 I like most of the ingredient list, as for example glycerin and hyaluronic acid are really high up on the list together with other moisturizing agents. However...... this does contain a lot of fragrance😢. It’s a nice fragrance, really fresh, and it hasn’t caused a reaction on me personally, but jf you have sensitive skin I recommend you patch test or skip it altogether. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🥬 This serum also contains some oils like safflower seed oil and evening primrose oil, which have very low comedogenic ratings and a lot of beneficial effects on the skin. It’s called the green serum because of the birch juice, kale extract, parsley extract, beefsteak plant extract, rhododendron extract and chlorophyll. The liquid has a slightly greenish colour because of the chlorophyll and is really watery and light, which makes it really easy to be absorbed!
🥬 All in all, I really like this serum, and if you’re looking for a really good hydrating serum I think you’ll really like this. Just make sure your skin can tolerate the fragrance in it. I don’t know yet if I’d repurchase this, because it’s on the pricier side for the amount of product that you get and I like trying new products, but I might repurchase in the future though!

🥘🍴// I’m sat on the sofa in my pjs, catching up with #imaceleb and I have a Quorn pie in the oven with mash & gravy ready and waiting 😍 I would usually have a glass of red wine but last night was quite heavy so I’m steering clear of alcohol for a while 😂 how’s your Friday night looking? ✨
Shadow play ☀️ I should wear this satin skirt more often! It’s so pretty and shiny. And I’m just realizing, this @diormakeup palette is so pretty and shiny too! Do you ever buy things, be it makeup or clothes, that you don’t want to ruin so you never wear them? You just stare at them and bask in their glory, bc same!
It’s day 2 of moving and we have the truck coming to collect all of the big items in the house. Yesterday we managed to take a lot of our belongings in our cars so hopefully we get everything moved today! I tell you, moving is exhausting lol
Love this outfit I tried on the other day at the @versonawinstonsalem grand opening! I obviously had to take this cardi home with me... the sleeves are so cute and the material is super cozy. So perfect for fall. 🍁♥️🍂

Celebrating Friday with my two new @versed products 🤩 .
I’ve been using @versed masks and I’m loving those so I had to try more of their products. I wanted to buy what I’ve been currently lacking in collection and not just random stuff I don’t need right now. I’m almost out of my current cleansing balm and after hearing so many great reviews I wanted to try this out. I’ve also been having some hormonal acne on my chin and I did not have any spot treatments or pimple stickers so I thought this would be a good buy. .
I’m excited to test out these products and hopefully get to try more from @versed

Three hours later a tropical storm hit and we had to take refuge in an abandoned building 🤦♀️ Barbados you’re wild
If my obsession with @colourpopcosmetics and their sister brands isn’t obvious already, I have been loving the @fourthraybeauty products I have been using and I’ve wanted to try more of their makeup so I decided to purchase a few things last week. I bought a super shock blush in the shade between the sheets, their new pretty fresh Hyaluronic creamy concealer, the Sol Body shimmering body powder in Rose, a bronzer from their new collection in coconut beach, and lastly the waterfall tonic.
I can’t wait to try these all out, the highlighter is gorgeous and the super shock blush is the coolest texture. I will definitely do an updated post with my thoughts soon! #colourpop#solbody#fourthraybeauty#makeup#beauty#discoverunder5k#skincare#newbeauty

Why you ALL should start waking up at 5 am ⏰🌅
Yesterday was my first gym session of the week and it was only 3 exercises 🤪
I know what you’re thinking, “how is she so incredibly buff when she hardly goes to the gym these days??”
WELL, 4 days of 5:30 am rowing practice a week has allowed me to get my workout in before the sun comes up ☀️ my classes may have cut into my weightlifting time, but you don’t need to be in a gym to make some gainz 💪🏻
I don’t know about you, but my 🧠 doesn’t function properly until I’ve been awake for a couple of hours BUT your body can still squat and deadlift and row and run during the time your brain is still waking up
Take a scoop of pre workout and eat a banana if you need it, but you’d be amazed at the things your body can do so early in the morning.
Make the most of your day and stop going to bed at 2 am. Thank you for coming to my TED talk.

for some, a dream job; for others, a position given but not even applied for.
The training is minimal, and there is no rule book for parenting these tiny little creatures.
We are our own bosses - so we make the choices but also suffer the guilt and consequences if we make the “wrong call”.
It’s a full time position with sporadic hours - but a 24/7 mental load. “Time off” is pretty well non-existent (unless you consider using the bathroom the odd time by yourself time off)
the best part is you get to choose your coworkers - your tribe that helps you take on this insanity, someone to complain about “the boss” with and rant about the never ending laundry, dishes, mom shamers and BS.
It’s a hard job, but the best job.
OH and the pay? The pay is priceless 😜🙈 #sappypost#ilovemygirl
Getting festive up in here!! 🤩 #gifted invite.
I had the pleasure of visiting @thebathamptonmill last night with my sissy to try out their new festive menu and oh my it did not disappoint! Turkey with all the trimmings, succulent scallops and ohh the dessert 🤤
Swipe through to see each dish I had in all its glory (thought I’d showcase the dessert first because I mean, who doesn’t love a good dessert!? 😂🙌🏼) Had a fabulous evening and can’t wait
to go back and give that brownie another go! It was so huge I couldn’t finish it all, which makes me so sad. No dessert should ever be left behind 😂
hi yes please focus on the outfit and not look too closely because i had to edit out a white string that was on my shirt (probably from when my shirt gets tossed on the floor or my desk chair that doubles as a mountain sized pile of clothes)
Feeling super grateful for the little things in life today - being home just in time for bathtime with my little girl after a stressful (and longer than usual) day at work 🧡
If there was a face to represent the day though then Luna’s moody (but beautiful) face here would be it! 😆 I started work at 7am, was meant to finish at 2.45pm, but walked in the door at 6.30pm after four hours of being stuck in a hospital reception... oh and we got stuck in a lift for 40 minutes too so I am completely and utterly done with this Friday, apart from the Dominos that is currently on its way to us 🤪
Hope you’ve all had a better day than I have!
#AD#GIFTED Last night we visited the beautiful @thebathamptonmill and indulged in their beautiful festive menu. There is so much choice on their amazing 3 course menu, I found it so hard to choose.
I can’t wait to go back and try their Sunday menu and a few more of their amazing double page gin menu too!!

It’s an exeat weekend in our house (when all our boarders go home for the weekend) and to think we’ve only got FOUR FRIDAYS left until Christmas fills me with huge amounts of excitement!
Last weekend we went to visit @lizlockiephotography for a festive family shoot. We’ve had the photos back and they are AMAZING. I’m taking full advantage of the fact my kids and husband love a good novelty Christmas jumper share my love for this holiday season!
I appreciate it’s still November and you might not be quite in the festive zone yet but this time of year makes me so happy. It’s the Scandi in me that relishes the cosy evenings lit by fairy lights and candles teamed with dark crisp nights.
Whilst I love summer, winter to me is the best season of all.
Are you feeling festive yet?
Can we also just take a moment to appreciate this cracking Christmas top from @joules that @thiswelshmummy saw and knew I would love!
Missing the warmer weather and the bright, sunny days ☀️ .
I’ve never been one for denim skirts, but I absolutely love the way this fits. It has some stretch, so it’s breathable and easy to move in. Plus, this is such a bold color! 😍💗

Can’t even deal with how beautiful my blondies are. Arya and Audrey are so similar, like you wouldn’t believe.
We are having such a great time in Florida and aside from taking lots of pictures, I’ve pretty much been staying off my phone.
And I’m doing so, it’s made me realise how much time I spend on it at home, my screen time is down by like 90%!!! It’s definitely something we will try to keep up when we come home. The phone/internet etc is something I love, but also something that sucks up my time... have to find more of a balance I think!
Meet my new bedside table companion - my @stilclassics 2020 planner. Designed by women, for women with busy schedules! I’m so excited to start getting ready for the year ahead. If you’re into planning and organization, this one is just perfect. More on my Stories! 🖤 #stilclassics#gifted

I was telling @mattricsystem last night I feel like the vast majority of our relationship has been long distance.
For those of you who don’t know a lot of our story, we started dating in high school and got married after we both graduated college. During that time though, we went to different schools about 4 hours away from each other. So lasting 5 years, long distance, during some of the most crazy years of your life, definitely tested us. And we still made it through together.
Fast forward to having kids, and yet another test. As a newly married couple just buying their first home, and both working full time, we split shifts so that we wouldn’t have to pay for childcare. We literally only saw each other in passing for about 4 years, until we had Chloe and I decided to start the photography biz and work from home.
Then, Matt and Gareth’s show @bucketsnboards really started to take off, and with a contract working with Disney (a true dream job), the traveling gigs started. And it’s been that way for the past almost 10 years... man, time flies.
I don’t know. I’d like to say being apart so much makes us work so well. I’d like to say I enjoy time to myself. But that’s simply not the case. He’s my person. And I’m his. Still, after 20 some odd years, if I could pick anyone to just hang out and do whatever with, it’d be him. So I miss him. A lot. And not just because we have three kids and he’s there to help and tag team this parenting gig, (because BELIEVE me, that’s awesome) but because I just like talking with him. And I laugh way more when he’s home, than when he’s not. 😂 Honestly, I feel more myself around him, because he brings out the best in me. You’re just happier when you know someone’s always there for you.
So this turnaround between gigs was one of the shortest in a while. Only a day and a half. So you gotta soak it all up as much as you can. Our girls don’t like it either, but at least they’re used to it and are pretty go with the flow. At least that makes leaving a little easier. But I know he’d rather be home too. At least it’s not a super long trip. And he’ll be home for the holidays. So, can’t wait till turkey day for that ❤️
happy Friday!! not a fashion pic but was feeling myself so here you go 💁🏻♀️

Ok so it’s an especially happy Friday for me because a couple months ago I would have hidden my skin behind my hair because it was the worst it’s even been in my life- But she is just coming along so nicely and we are friends again😜 For anyone else struggling with bad skin, for me, food played a HUGE role in my skin, and you can always DM me to find out more 💕I won’t bore yah now 😜Maybe I should make a YouTube video on it?
