Dinner at The Skylark, Pampering & Pout

Last night we went out for dinner to a local bistro & bar - The Skylark.  This is only the second time we've been for dinner, we've also been for drinks and I've met a friend for coffee and (amazing) scones.  The cakes are fantastic too!

Vibrant Summer Fish Stew

coffee and macaroons - nom nom!

I also did some pampering prior to going to Pout tomorrow (meeting a friend for lunch before going along to the preview event).

Here's what I used:

Jo Malone Grapefruit Bath Oil - I received this at my birthday from hubby.  Absolutely love and use it sparingly!

For my hair Naked Marula Fruit & Provitamins Revitalising Hair Treatment - single use sachet.  I got this in my Fayek Beauty Box.

Tata Harper Resurfacing Mask - this is one of my #Samples 3 - gorgeous! 

Rituals Wai Wang Exfoliating Body Scrub - got this a while back with a magazine as a freebie - lovely product.

Angela Langford Perfect Pores Serum & Balanced & Beautiful Facial Oil - testing these for review at the moment.

Elemis Pro-Collagen Body Cream - love this first reviewed it here.







I also picked up some gourmet marshmallows from The Marshmallow Lady - they are simply delicious! I bought them at Lickety Splits.  I picked Vanilla Bean flavour.  Other flavours include Beer, Raspberry, Key Lime Pie and Irn Bru!  Apparently the cafe serves amazing hot chocolate - I'll have to pop by!  You can follow The Marshmallow Lady on Twitter @burghbakes.  There is also an excellent review in Bite Magazine.


  1. That food looks amazing! Especially the fish stew.
    I haven't tried the Elemis Pro-Collagen body cream but I've got the hand cream from same range and it's gorgeous. So if the body cream smells the same, I can imagine you went out smelling lovely :)

    1. The food was amazing! Oh you'd love it! Great day out x
