I'm doing something I NEVER do.


Tomorrow I am heading out for a long overdue break. I mean really long overdue. We haven't been abroad as a family in 18 years. EIGHTEEN years. I know.

So: I will be Instagramming like a crazy person and will be on twitter for a little each day - but I have very limited access to WI-FI *insert cheerleaders* and so will not be updating the blog nor replying to comments. 

For those readers that are fairly new - you may or may not know that this blog is still currently my sideline - I work full-time in the beauty industry. 
Had I been more organised I would have scheduled posts etc - but I am still - at 9pm on my birthday, the night before I go away, working, having packed nothing. So that won't be happening.

When I return I have meetings ahoy scheduled for things like YouTube and will be amping up the blog even more so towards the end of the year.....so please just give me this couple of weeks to rest, sunbathe, swim, sunbathe, hang out with my faimly, sunbathe and basically get my head together.

Thank you for an amazing year so far on this blog. I truly appreciate each and every one of you. Even you trolls. You make me remember that I'm very blessed not to have such a sad shitty attitude and to genuinely feel empathy towards my fellow man. I truly wish you everything you clearly resent in others. 

As for the rest of you lovely, supportive, wonderful, engaging people: I'm worried you may miss me. So here:

You're welcome.

See you in August!!!

I will respond to the Lauder comments when I get back - unless I get near wi-fi* and out of my husband's sight for long enough to crack on while I'm there! ;)


*Nobody tells Jim.

  23. Happy Birthday Lady Hirons!
    I hope you and your family have a fab time abroad!

    Been a long time fan of the blog; follow your advice and product recommendations. I just have one quick question- can I use the pixi glow tonic whilst on 40mg of roaccutane (starting the roaccutane tomorrow)? I was thinking of using it once a day at night as opposed to my current twice a day, and getting rid of liquid gold all together or could I still use it whilst on roaccutane?

  46. I hope you have a fabulously great break with your family and that the weather is beautiful where you're going. I love your blog and have learned so much from you. I don't think I found you through Pixiwoo but it was about the same time as that. I wish it had been earlier so I could have asked some questions in clinics before they became so busy!

  48. Caroline, I love reading everything you have to say about skincare... Great blog. But I have to tell you... I've bought things upon your recommendation only to find out they have mineral oil in them!! Like Lancome Gelatee Confort and the Jergens body moisturisers?!? CAROLINE!!!!! My skin is practically allergic to that mineral oil crap. I thought I could trust you!
    Having said all that.. My boyfriend bought me the Zelens moisturiser a while ago and I really like it ;)
    Thanks bye xx

  56. Have a great holiday! FYI: i've just discovered your blog and I love the way you combine your skincare knowledge with your funny personality! :) I've read back all your posts to 2010 and even felt guilty when I was thinking about going to sleep without my night cream on the other night. Well, anyway, enjoy a well deserved vacation! :)
