MY DAILY RITUALS

April 25, 2016
body

My daily rituals are pretty sacred to me, and unless I´m travelling or on-the-go, it pretty much stays the same every day. I guess that´s why I love it so much; having those consistent and stable day-to-day rituals, makes me focused – which in turn leaves me much more motivated to maintain good, and healthy routines.

Sadly, since my last Monthly Favourites post in March, Spring has only briefly teased us on a few occasions. But the beginning is near and having had some recent heat in Dallas a few weeks back, I am ready to embrace what´s left of April, and hopefully have a warm month of May. Here is what I have been loving, wearing and using, since last time…

SUMMER LOCKS

Although I´m pretty low-maintance when it comes to my hair, there is no better feeling and boost of confidence, when your hair is looking and feeling strong, thick and healthy. Sadly we´re not all blessed with naturally dreamy hair, and I for one have always wanted for long and luscious locks…

MY ULTIMATE GUIDE TO PREPARE FOR LONG-HAUL TRAVEL

April 6, 2016

Travelling and flying takes a toll on your skin, especially when it´s long-haul. I´ll be going to America twice this month, both of which are only for 3-4 days, which will be even harder on my skin and body. I´m pretty regimental when I travel, and since I´m fortunate to be doing more of it, I have come into bit of a routine. It´s all about preparation in advance, and then re-booting once I´m back… Continue Reading

I´ve had Instagram for years, but it´s only this past year where it has really taken off for me (thanks to so many of you guys!) and naturally I´ve started putting more time and effort into it. Instagram is my favourite social media account; I love working with pictures, photographing and editing… I´m not a total pro, but I´m getting there! Read on for my top tips and what works for me… Continue Reading

WHY I LOVE SUNDAY’S

March 20, 2016
home-5

Sunday’s are just so good. And I love it because it´s totally OK to stay in my pyjamas until lunch time (right!?), I have time to catch up on my reading, bake batches of healthy muffins, set new plans and goals for the week ahead, go for a long afternoon walk, and ending the day with a long soak in the bath and pamper session. What more do you want?

I´m all about pampering. Nothing beats coming home after a busy day and setting aside a good hour to myself in the bathroom. I love having a long bath with candles and an episode of Scandal (oh the joy) – always followed by a weekly ritual I never stray away from: a face maskContinue Reading

Happy Sunday! It´s probably one of my favourite days of the week (most likely because it´s considered OK to stay in your pyjamas all day… Or is that just me?!). Sunday is the ultimate day of relaxing, re-charging for a new week ahead, going for long walks (not in my pyjamas), and pampering.  Continue Reading

Valentine´s day. I love it. Sure, it can be be pretty cheesy (not to mention that one should obviously celebrate ones love more than just one day) but it´s a time marked to stop up and recognise your other half. Concisely make that extra little effort – be it through a bunch of flowers, a thoughtful card – OR, heading to my husband´s personal all-time favourite store, MR PORTER. Continue Reading

I can´t quite believe it´s nearly mid January already – time is just flying by and before we know it, it´s spring time already. Weather wise, it´s not very inspiring, with the cold and rainy weather, so right now I´m actually hoping it will continue to fly away, so the warmer months can come sooner! In the meantime, I am sharing what I have been loving this past month… From, beauty, lingerie, fitness, jewellery, and planning for a new, exiting 2016 – here you have it… Continue Reading
