When I received an email from the lovely ladies at M&S they asked if i'd like to take part in a holiday blog post, I've selected a couple of gorgeous pieces from the Limited Collection at M&S which I'll be styling on holiday (so keep an eye out for those). I was also asked to create a holiday moodboard via the M&S Style Board page, now you all now how much I love to create a wishlist and this one was no exemption!
I'd never come across the M&S Style Board page before but take a peek if you get a chance, it's so easy to use (I usually make my wishlist moodboards on Photoshop which is great but can be quite time consuming), you just select the pieces you want and drag them over to your mood board - you can then re-size and overlap them. All items from your moodboard are linked back to the site so people who view your board can buy anything featured, you can also share with your friends too on social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter.
I picked out these bits as I thought they were ideal for holiday (I've not chosen anything from here for my outfit post so I can keep those a surprise) - kind of wishing I'd got the necklace and clutch bag now though as they are both so lovely! Make sure you follow me on Instagram: Frockmeimfamous - to see my holiday outfits before they are published on my blog! :)
Which piece is your favourite from my holiday moodboard?

Tonight I have something to exciting to share with you all! Estee Lauder at Debenhams are holding a free gift with purchase at the moment for all customers who purchase any two full size Estee Lauder products between now and Saturday the 15th of February... little bit exciting?! I couldn't believe how generous the gift is as you receive everything picture above - advanced skincare and bold, colourful makeup shades, all housed in a brightly designed bag.
This gift would make an ideal treat for yourself or a loved one (if you're feeling nice that day!), I also think it's a great way to sample each product in miniature form then if you really love one of them you can head back to your local counter to pick up the full size! I'm most excited about trying the mascara (gotta love a travel sized beauty product) and also the advanced repair night cream as I've heard so many amazing things!
Here's a breakdown of what your gift includes:
· Advanced Night Repair Eye Creme 5ml
· DayWear Creme Deluxe Gift Size 1ml
· Dual-Ended Pure Color Intense Kajal EyeLiner
· Sumptuous Extreme Mascara 2.8ml
· Stress Relief Eye Mask
· Pure Color Eyeshadow Quad and Pure Color Lipstick.
Will you be claiming your fab free gift from Estee Lauder?

So today is my first day of the #AlproAM challenge (aka Alpro almond mornings). I was contacted by the team at Alpro to see if I'd like to take part in the 7 day challenge, you have to create a different smoothie on each morning of the 7 days. I jumped at the chance to get involved as (in case you hadn't already heard me harping on about it) I'm off to Thailand on Monday, eep! - and I thought it would be a great healthy way to end the week before we set off.
I have a bit of a thing for peanut butter and can't get enough of it recently, when my sister in law recently posted that she was making a banana and peanut butter smoothie I just knew I had to make one! I used two scoops of whole earth peanut butter, 2 small bananas and 250g of Alpro almond milk... it was delicious! The banana was quite strong so I think I'd only use one next time, someone also just recommended to me on Twitter that is tastes great using frozen bananas too so I'll be trying that next time.
Make sure you follow me on Instagram/Twitter: @Frockmeimfamous as I'll be sharing a snap every morning of my different smoothies. At the end of the week I'll do a round up of what I've had each of the 7 days so you can see, also - if you have any great smoothie recommendations please let me know as I've run out of ideas after day 4 haha!
