Lazy Sunday Mornings.

To me, a lazy Sunday should always involve cups of hot coffee, Death Cab’s Narrow Stairs on the record player and a Diptyque candle burning – after a busy week I need some time to decompress a little, and prep for the week ahead.It’s a staple part of our morning that we never seem to skip; a sleepy routine that we’ve mastered over the years and now look forward to through the week! Since Jordan started on his coffee journey, we’re getting more and more in to crafting the perfect coffee. Well, he is. I still get a bit...

A Few Of My Favourite Bags…

For as long as I can remember, I’ve loved handbags – they’re just the easiest way to bring an outfit to life, and there’s so many designs and colours and textures. It’s easy to shop them on a budget, or lust over more luxe pieces… In the last year or so, I’ve found my style a bit more, and become comfortable with buying key pieces that are going to last me. All the bags I own now are ones that I think I’ll cherish for a long time, which makes me feel a whole lot better about the price...

The Dreamiest Diptyque Find.

Perhaps this little Diptyque obsession of mine has taken over my life (not to mention my bank balance… wow), but I couldn’t not purchase this perfectly packaged pastel pick when I was in duty-free recently. It looks like it was made for me! I file candle purchases under ‘self-care’, they completely transform my mood in the evenings and really contribute to me feeling like I have my shit together. Maybe my house is piled high with recycling, maybe I’m making to-do lists filled with tasks I’ve already completed, but I light a dreamy scented candle and I finally feel...

A Place To Store My Jewels.

I’m slowly moving my trinkets, jewels, lotions and potions in to the bedroom – most of these bits were previously stored in my office room, so I was excited to rehome them in a proper space when I decided to turn the office in to an actual real workspace. I knew I would use the new faux fireplace (post and video coming!) to store my favourite pieces, and so I asked Jordan for some jewellery storage for Christmas. He did not disappoint, finding a treasure trove of marble and brass goodies on which I could store all my favourite...

Overnight Beauty Heroes.

While I may fall behind on many of my routines (gym going, replying to emails, getting my brows seen to, to name a few), I’m always on it when it comes to my evening skincare routine. I double cleanse every night, and never skip a treatment or two either. There’s a few new products I’ve come across lately that have helped me in my mission to a healthy complexion, and I’m willing to share the lineup with you… Sunday Riley Luna Oil; It’s likely you’ve tuned in to the hype surrounding this vibrant overnight oil, the cult buy is...

2017 Goals.

Where oh where has the time gone? I feel like 2016 went unbelievably fast, but it was also quite a… I don’t know, an eventful year – and not always for the right reasons! Overall, I had a really great year. I definitely achieved more than I had hoped, and I feel quite content as I enter 2017. Here’s some goals I’m hoping to achieve this coming year, something I always love to do as it’s always fun to look back on this time next year! 01. Plan a wedding! I’m still floating on a little loved-up cloud after...
