MONTHLY FAVOURITES #24

May 16, 2016
favourites

May is in full blast and I don´t think I´ve ever been more ready for some summer heat. Especially now that our house is ready and our garden is landscaped (did I mention that we planted a PALM TREE?). Bringing the tropics to suburbia, having that summer feeling all year around! Talking about the new season, here is what I´ve been loving so far… Continue Reading

IMPROVING YOUR SKIN FROM WITHIN

May 11, 2016
skin-2

My skin has always been pretty good. From a young age, I´ve been really regimental with cleansing and moisturising, which has definitely helped it, however I was also a heavy sun worshipper in my teens, which has left my skin slightly sun damaged, with patches of pigmentation. When that said, over the past few years, I have been so strict with SPF (I now wear SPF50 every single day – even when the suns not out!). So I´m a firm believer that it´s never too late to start taking care of your skin. But the sooner, the better. Continue Reading

PREPARING YOUR SKIN FOR SPRING

April 27, 2016
beauty-4

Spring is on it’s way. Although it might not feel like it right now (yes, it was snowing at some stage yesterday!), it is just around the corner. The winter season can really be torturous to our skin, causing dryness, flakiness and cracking. Hence the reason why it´s all the more important to really prepare and heal our skin for the spring season!

MY DAILY RITUALS

April 25, 2016

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

hair-19

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?

6 FACE MASKS TO SUIT ALL YOUR SKIN CONCERNS

March 16, 2016

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

And since trying it for myself, I can safely say, it has changed my complexion entirely. Want to find out why, and which product I can´t live without? Read on… Continue Reading
