As the song goes, ‘it’s the most wonderful time of the year’ and that’s certainly true here at Alva Street. We’ve well and truly embraced the Christmas spirit and had a fabulous time joining our neighbours in the West End for some festive fun on Thursday evening.
We had a fantastic evening on Wednesday with our charity seminar with guest speaker Amanda Hamilton. we keep our events reasonably small, so that they are personal and very intimate which allows those who attend to really discuss the topic with the speaker.
Amanda spoke brilliantly on "Losing weight and keeping it off" plus she gave us her personal insight into the 5/2 diet and fasting. The fantastic thing about Amanda is that she is able to convey complex ideas into simply easy to understand concepts.
The key look for this season is still quite natural, but with more emphasis on the eyes – it’s a look that you can keep subtle but on-trend for daytime, but be as bold as you dare with for evenings.
I teamed up with Jane Iredale Make-Up Artist Corranto create a daytime look for autumn that can easily be transformed into a dazzlingly dramatic evening look that will get you though the party-season perfectly.
We all know that drinking lots of water, a good diet (as many veggies as we can manage and as little fried food as possible), and good old-fashioned fresh air and exercise are not only good for us; they’re great for our skin.
