Home Updates To Do This Weekend.

I think there comes a point in your twenties where you use your weekends wisely, and I definitely try my hardest to make the most of the two days I have away from my desk!Although I still haven’t toned down my social life (I have at least swapped night clubs for late night, cocktail filled dinners!), I usually reserve a day for catching up on life admin! I spend a few hours tidying up my house – basically punishment for the night before – and rearranging a little, I think rearranging your rooms is a free way of getting...

Let’s Talk Lipstick.

If there’s one beauty product I’ve really fallen for in the last year or so, it’s lipstick! I’m really quite a minimal gal at heart, but I’ve been trying to make an effort when it comes to being adventurous with my lip colour.

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.

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...
