My approach to fragrance is frivolous. As much as I love makeup and skincare, I find that they require a careful selection process based upon the current needs of my skin. Perfumes are different, they allow instinctive choices and the freedom to reach for whatever scent takes my fancy.
Being my own boss has always been a goal. Flexible hours, having no one to answer to but myself and being able to work from just about anywhere. Only it doesn’t really work out like that. Being your own boss certainly has its perks, but it also comes with the realisation that you do, in fact, have people to answer to. Another potential work hazard is a poor work-life balance.

If you know me, you’ll know I love my food. My first ever blog post was titled ‘A Long Weekend of Food’ but I then inadvertently strayed away from that type of content. For a while now though, I’ve been considering bringing it back. I really want to broaden my lifestyle posts in order to share more experiences and recommend more places.

In this post I’m sharing the best tips to maximise your beauty sleep (yes I do consider myself an expert).
The Natural Wellness Box is a wellness and beauty service offering a variety of subscription options. A new, themed, collection is released bi-monthly.

Everything featured is Vegan and CF which is a lovely bonus for me but particularly amazing news for those who are vegan.
Last month I had the pleasure of spending a day in St Ives with Hall & Co Event Design in honour of their Easter Feast launch. The experience was a very subtle lesson in entertaining. It channelled my inner Martha Stewart and since I’ve been itching to pass on some tips to make you the host with the most.
I’m going to make it clear right off the bat that I love Valentines day and do celebrate it in the traditional sense. In fact, when this post goes live I’ll be enjoying a romantic luxury Spa Break with my other half. I’m up for any excuse to celebrate love, show appreciation and well, a wine and dine.
