Today I am Grateful for...


How often do you take the time to really take a step back, breathe and have a moment to actually appreciate your life? I know I definitely don't do it often (or at all if I am being honest!) If you are anything like me, you might get easily swept in the busyness of your day to day life. Between juggling a full-time job, my blog and just life in general, sometimes I get frustrated and stressed out with how many things I have on my plate at any given time. But some are not as lucky as I am. Sure, I have my own struggles and roadblocks in life but I never really appreciate the life that I have. I barely spare a thought to be grateful to be as busy as I am, to have the opportunities that I am presented with, and the family and friends that I have supporting me.

So with this Circa Home candle and Gratitude Notepad having just arrived on my door step, what better time than the present to take a moment to appreciate and be grateful for the things I have in my life.

March Beauty Favourites


I could swear that it was Christmas only a few weeks ago, but here we are sitting in April already 4 months into 2016! Maybe it is just my old age (cough) but this year is flying by and I just need it to take it down a notch and slow down just a teeny bit, pretty please? As I sit down to write this post I just realised that I didn't do a Feb Faves post. These posts are definitely one of my favourites to write (and read) as it is always so interesting to see what have been your go-tos over the whole month - who else enjoys monthly favourites? 

February and March have both been crazy busy months for me hence why my posts have been a bit slack lately, but I also feel like my February Favourites would have been very similar to my January Favourites anyway as I wasn't reaching for anything new. However March and the start of Autumn (though it very much still feels like summer most days) saw me using a whole bunch of new things and with it of course comes some new favourites! So let's get right on down to the nitty gritty.
