    the trouble with perfection- st dunstans east

    Hello! How was your Monday? If it wasn't that good at least it's Tuesday which means one step closer to the weekend :). Today's post is all about the trouble with perfection. We're bombarded with images of what success looks like and that you have to be perfect in order to be successful. This inevitably makes you feel like you're a failure and not good enough. This is so true for those of us who are over the age of 30. If you haven't accomplished what society says we should have around this age then, we're deemed imperfect. Read on for my thoughts on the trouble with perfection.

  • Visiting Santorini in October

    Mountain and sea

    Good morning beautiful. How are you and how was your weekend? I know you've been enjoying my autumn winter series and thank you to all who have commented and liked. I really wanted to do something that would be helpful for the colder months as it can be challenging at times. Today's post, as you can tell by the title is all about Santorini, Greece. I have been wanting to visit this place ever since I saw the blue and white buildings, which are everywhere. You may have recalled in my last travel post (click here) where I said this place was my five in five and I am pleased to report that I can tick it off my list :)

  • Autumn Scents

    autumn scents- so...? Fragrance Dark Romance

    We're in the swing of autumn although, the weather thinks it's spring. One day it's freezing and you're all wrapped up in scarves and thick coats. Next moment, it's light jackets and bare legs which makes it challenging to know how to dress. However, what's not a challenge is knowing autumn scents which as I've spoken about before, here, is powerful.

    Happy Tuesday my lovelies! It's officially autumn and October! Before we know it, it will be Christmas and NYE which is crazy to me. I feel like we only just celebrated the start of 2017 a couple months ago! Time passes by so quickly and the pace of life doesn't seem to slow down, which is why it's so important to take care of yourself. You know I'm a massive fan of self-care (even though I sometimes forget to do it myself!). Seems as though if you're 30 years and above, your responsibilities triple! With that in mind, today's post is for you. Read on for my easy morning ritual for busy people.

  • Night Time Skincare Routine, Simon & Tom

    Hello my lovely people how are you all? As you can tell from the title, I'm sharing with you my current night time skincare routine. As a woman in her 30's your body goes through changes and so does your skin which means your routine needs to reflect its' needs. I remember going to a skin care event and an aesthetician, who was one of the speakers, said that she does not treat her client's skin according to their age but, according to what their skin needs.

    I was searching for products that addressed my needs which included, visible pores, uneven skin tone, redness and some dryness. Whilst searching for suitable products, *Simon & Tom asked me if I would be interested in trying some products from their Hydra range. Since I've used their face masks I jumped at the chance to try their luxury range and created a night time routine.

    Hello my fellow travel giraffes, how are you? Have you ever seen a particular place pop up on social media that makes you want to pack your bags and go? Yup! We've all seen them on Instagram. Sometimes you even pack your bags and go, only to realise that they weren't as nice as portrayed. The guys at Handluggage Only did a list of places that are overrated in Europe and I thought I'd share my list of 5 places worth visiting.
