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. So the first follows from my birthday trip to Sticks’n’Sushi in Cambridge.
The importance of sleep isn’t lost on me. From silk pillowcases to satin pyjamas, I really go all out to ensure a great 8 (plus) hours. I’ve written about some of my favourite bedding in the past but after some great discoveries and a new routine, I thought it was time for an update! 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. The boxes include 5-7 full size products: Luxury skincare, supplements and healthy snack products. 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.
Its the cliché thing to say at the beginning of a new year, but 2018 really did fly by. Deconstructing the year just gone and appreciating the best parts of it is something that many of us like to do. So I thought I’d share my own highlights of 2018. This post is very much for my own benefit and one which I’ll look back on. It’s also full of recommendations and inspiration for ways in which to fill your own 2019.
What can I say about New Years Resolutions? Quite frankly, nothing nice. Over the years I’ve made plenty, most of which I don’t remember and many of which I’m certain didn’t progress past the initial notion. I’m a little ashamed to admit that as of yet I’ve definitely not achieved an enviable gym body. Nor have I become fluent (or even close) in any other language. I can, however, pinpoint exactly why past resolutions have been quickly forgotten about. There’s a pressure that I’m sure many of us feel at the beginning of a new year, that this one will be the one; the best year yet. We convince ourselves that of all of the things we want to achieve are attainable and set unrealistic goals as a result. Failure to stick to resolutions also tends to have a lot to do with a little reluctance to actually put the effort in.
I’ve always found so much enjoyment in relating to and being inspired by other blogs. Before my own had even become a concept, I found myself filling my free time with beauty reviews and travel content. With so many amazing blogs and therefore posts, it can be difficult to keep up and make sure you’re not missing out on the best quality content. Here’s a roundup of 10 of my favourite blog posts from 2018, and why they’ll inspire you too.
