When I first saw this Warehouse Utility Pocket Tee online, I knew it had to be mine and lo and behold, guess what became mine? I am totally in love with it, down from the camel colour (can we say 70s) to the pocket detailing. Everything about it screams casual but it also has the detailing you wouldn't expect from that kind of wear. It's a lovely thickness, especially during the spring when it's still a little nippy outside. Also, can we take a second to appreciate the knitted sleeveless duster from Sainsbury's of all places?! Went in for some tomatoes, came out with this. Totally worth it.

Have you found anything amazing somewhere you think you wouldn't?

Don't be fooled ladies, I know this little bottle of Origins Plantscription Youth-Renewing Face Oil is targeted towards age concerns, but this is an absolute dream for dry skin. Dry skin is a constant battle for me, especially on my cheeks and since I added this into my night routine, I've seen a significant improvement in my skin. I'm not going to say it has completely got rid of my dry skin as weather changes wreak havoc with it but it really is the best it's ever been with this in my routine. My skin is left feeling plump, hydrated and oh so happy! £39 might be a lot to fork out at once but the Origins Plantscription Youth-Renewing Face Oil has a 24 month use by date and it is lasting me an absolute age! Filled with 20 different oils from all over the world, including Raspberry Seed Oil, Argan Oil, Tamanu Oil and Evening Primrose, it's said to help repair the skin's barrier and replace vital lipids lost with age. Well, I can't comment on that (I'm not quite there yet guys!) but this really has been a welcome addition to my skincare kit.

Have you tried anything from the Plantscription range?

I've had this in my make up drawer gathering dust for so long since winning it from QVC last year on Twitter and I have to say, I'm an idiot. Since popping the Laura Geller Spackle Hydrating Moisturizing Under Make-Up Primer into my routine I've found that not only is my dry skin feeling a lot better throughout the day, but my make up also sticks around all day. I don't need to reapply anything at all in my 9 hour shifts at work which is always an absolute bonus. A very thin layer is all that is needed, and I mean a VERY thin layer. It does sink in really well and very quickly but I do find, if I put on too much my foundation does look patchy. I can only see this as a good thing from a price point of view though. I do think the best thing about this is that it really helps with my dry skin problems which can flare up at any time. Thank you Laura Geller, you've come up trumps here.

Do you have a favourite primer?
