You may remember at the end of last November I wrote a blog post all about beauty advent calendars. There were some real treasures out there to purchase for the countdown to Christmas, but this time I wasn’t able to buy one. I was saving any money I had for medication and an advent calendar of this type is definitely a luxury and not a necessity. As the new year began I received a surprise […]

I have always been a bit lip balm obsessed, thinking back to my school days you would always find one in my blazer pocket or stuffed into my pencil case. Even now I feel the need to try out the latest balms and in every flavour or scent! They are definitely an essential and I usually have at least two in my handbag at a time! I always seem to have dry lips, regardless of wether it […]

Yesterday I had a real craving for something sweet and nothing seemed to hit the spot. I began with a google search and a rummage through my cupboards and discovered that I had just the right ingredients to mix up a healthier alternative to many of the sweet treats available on the shop shelves.

On a positive, today does feels like a brighter and less painful day so I am taking full advantage to jump back on the blogging bandwagon. […]

You’ll also be soaking amongst little tiny silver stars as well as the relaxing scents of jasmine and ylang-ylang.

Todays motivational blog post in a way speaks for itself, so I will introduce with some brief facts. In this post I share with you the words of a song that both teach and inspire me. I often listen to this track and feel it has the power to remind me to try and live each day as if it were my last and to see the opportunities that are all around me. Baz Luhrmann is […]
