The winner of a £250 voucher to spend on fabulous kitchen gizmos and gadgets at @lakelanduk is…. @kazweedon with this adorable bunny bunt cake! Almost too cute to eat...

  • I’ve not been able to get a hair appointment but, I have managed to get a post-lockdown facial at gorgeous boutique salon, @creativelooksesthetics in Market Harborough. 
I had my face scanned and my skin analysed by a whizzy machine - not as scary as it sounds! What I took away from it was that I have the skin of someone two years younger! Well, that made my week! Does that mean I can get away with saying I’m still in my 30s? 🤔 No filter! #glowingandgrowing
