Summer begins!

With 1st June being the first day of summer, and it being preceded by a beautiful bank holiday weekend, things are underway for a great season!

I’ve got a few things to look forward to at the Q too. I’m trying to get my hands on the brand-new Dyson Micro, which we have arriving at our doors this month. I don’t know that much about it other than it’s the smallest Dyson we’ve seen but still packed with power! I’ll report back if I can manage to find one to have a play with.

The supersize of the month is a favourite of mine as I’ve been using it for a few years. It’s the Bye Bye Under Eye Concealer from IT Cosmetics. The reason why I like it so much is that it has really good full coverage (and not just for those dark circles under the eyes). I used to use a very well-known brand that was a touch wrong for me! I always had to buy a shade that was bit too light to cover the dark circles, and it never looked right.

One of the items I have been lucky enough to get my hands on are the Bell & Howell led solar powered garden lights. We have a special offer on Sunday 13th June for a set of eight (the product number is 719567). These are very special lights as they are quite flat and yet can be angled, which allows you to illuminate pathways or a specific feature.

They are COB lights, which means they use minimal power for a very clean, bright light – and with a set of eight, you have plenty of scope to get creative. There is a rather nifty optional spike to secure them, and their distinctiveness makes them very attractive in the garden. I laid mine out in the sun for the first day to give them a good charge (but they actually arrived with a charge already). They come on automatically when it gets dark but there is an on/off switch on the back if you wanted to charge them for a specific occasion and switch them on at a particular time.

I used them to illuminate some planters I have in the back yard and they really lifted their personality. I loved the way they can make my carving (Olly the owl) look proud and professional, and even just giving some ‘quiet’ plants a bit of light can really make the garden look pukka! I’ll be joining Michael Perry and the gang on that Sunday, so if you want to find out more, join us.
