It’s been a long time since I’ve talked skincare on the blog, so with a bit of a shakeup going on for Spring I thought I’d share the products I’m using + loving right now. I always switch my products around at the start of a new season, in the colder months I’m reaching for rich, hydrating, protecting products, whilst when things warm up, I’m looking for lighter, brightening, refreshing products to add into my routine. So, without any further ado, my Spring skincare routine!
I didn’t share the March pages of my Erin Condren Life Planner with you lovely lot because in all honesty – they weren’t that exciting! With my surgery at the beginning of the month, the weeks I actually filled out mostly read like ‘took a nap’, ‘watched a movie’, ‘slept all day’ – not the most riveting of content.
This month though, I really wanted to crack my planner open and chat to you about the spreads + stickers I’ve been using! I’ve been trying a few different things out, and I think I’ve finally found a groove where all the pages of my planner are proving functional for me!
In our house, bank holiday weekends mean going off to explore! Arundel Castle has been on my to visit list for the longest time, it’s not super far from us so there’s not really an excuse as to why we haven’t been! Last Saturday, we decided to make the most of the tempermental sunshine and head to Sussex and finally cross the castle off our to do list!
There’s nothing like a big life event to make you rethink your entire life purpose.
Having a five and a half centimetre tumour removed from your body, well that gets you thinking about your why a bit more.
Next week we start moving in to our new place and whilst my parents’ garage, dining room and conservatory are all bursting at the seams with furniture + homeware purchases I have made, there’s still of course, a sizeable homeware wishlist sitting in my bullet journal. I thought I’d round them up for you today in the hope you’d enable me!
The fact that today marks the first day of May feels almost like a personal attack of Mother Nature. The weeks and months are slipping past faster and faster, and I feel like I’m missing out! After spending the first four months of the year unwell + trying to recover, I’m finally starting to feel a little more myself, so I’m looking forward to feeling like I’ve achieved something by the end of the month. With that in mind, here’s my May To Do List!
It’s been quite some time since I’ve put together a monthly favourites post, so I wanted to make sure an April Favourites made it into my schedule! Sometimes I feel like I have to force monthly favourite posts, like I’m writing them for the sake of sticking to a schedule, but it’s been a while and I have so many great things to share with you that this month it was a no brainer! I’ve got a bit of a mix this month, of beauty, fashion and life bits, so hopefully there’s something for everyone!
With about a week to go til we start moving into our new place, I decided it was about time I gave my wardrobe a good sort out. I feel like a move is a good excuse to really curate your possessions, get rid of things you don’t use, or in this case wear, things past their best and things you just don’t love. Also when we move in, our built in wardrobes are likely to not be ready, so I wanted to make sure everything is organised and easy to find whilst we’re making do with clothing storage! So here’s my tips on how to purge your wardrobe, from a self-confessed clothes hoarder!
Last month my sister and I took a whirlwind two day trip to Copenhagen, it was my gift to her for her 21st birthday (good god how am I old enough to have a 21 year old sister GAH). It was a full speed ahead sorta trip, neither of us having visited the city before we wanted to cram in as much as possible in a short amount of time! With a mere 36 hours in Copenhagen, we knew we needed to travel smart, with a bit of a plan of attack + also a lightweight luggage situation! This is a long one, so grab a cup of tea and settle in!
