“February is the border between Winter and Spring” Terri Guillemets.

I saw this quote recently, on someone’s insta square, and for the life of me I cannot remember where I saw it. But I love it.

It’s such a transformative month and I get all excited seeing the new buds sprouting above the surface. New beginnings.

With each new Spring comes new beginnings. New blooms in the garden, new colours and new weather.

I’m looking forward to many more walks in the Wintery Sun & filling my lungs with fresh air.

What do you love about February?

Today marks a month since we lost our little Rambo. We’re still trying to heal but, as all the advice said, it is getting a little lighter to carry the grief each day.

Isla still isn’t sleeping very well and when it gets towards the end of the evening, we’re all a little out of sorts. Simply, we miss him so much.

I’m going to brave it and write a blog dedication to my little best bud, I haven’t felt brave enough yet. He was such a lovely dog, also a bit weird & funny, it will be nice to share his stories.

I love this photo of the 3 of them snuggling. This was just before Christmas. This is quite often what view I would have behind my desk… my little snugglers!

Do you take loads of photos of your pets snuggled in different ways?

The Winter Sun has been so beautiful over the last few days.  I think today we’re going to see a change to cloudy skies.

I love this photo. The low sun and the kids having a little adventure. I spend a lot of my time watching them interact. I guess that’s a big part of parenthood. Learning and growing.

Have you been making the most of the weather?

A little corner of my office… I spend most of my week here so it’s nice to pretty it up sometimes. I even managed to blur out the water marks on the windows (they need a good clean).

My tax return has been submitted and my assignment has too! Quite a day for submissions and I’m relieved. I’m in the last year of uni and I’m so grateful for the support I’ve had to complete it. I am focussed on finishing, which is giving me the mindset to get it done.

What did you do today that your relieved about?

Daddy = “Kids please don’t try and walk on the ice”….
Kids = ☝🏻

They kept edging towards the pond, “I just want to break the ice”. They did make me laugh. And yes, they ignored the instructions. But they did only tap the ice with their toes.

It made for a little adventure this afternoon. I love this Winter sun!

Do your kids love standing on frozen puddles?

The frost is so beautiful 🥶 I love the days where it is frosty but super sunny. The sun was beaming into my office today. It made my heart happy. 

This weather is definitely snuggle & binge watch TV shows kind of weather. I’ve started watching Bloodlines on Netflix. I started it as I just loved “Judy” from Dead to Me and thought I’d give this a try. It’s quite gripping & I’ve not been too good at predicting the storyline so far. Which usually I can!

Do you have any Wintery snuggle shows that I need to add to my watch list?

3 Nighttime treatments that give new meaning to getting your beauty rest

3 Nighttime treatments that give new meaning to getting your beauty rest

For as long as anyone can remember, getting your beauty rest meant getting enough sleep so that your body was refreshed and healthy upon awakening. Even though we still know that the human body does need enough sleep to maintain good health, there are now treatments that we use overnight without taking time from our busy days. You no longer need to paste those green masks over your face until they crack and dry and you can even straighten your teeth while you sleep! If you are looking for easier ways to maintain a youthful glow to your skin or keep brittle hair from breaking every time you brush it, the following nighttime treatments really can give new meaning to that old, worn expression, “beauty rest.” VIEW the POST

How to tell if you have Rosacea

How to tell if you have Rosacea

Rosacea is a skin condition which typically affects women with fair skin, most commonly appearing across areas of the face. Since rosacea can occur in a number of ways and still relatively mis-understood it can be confused with a number of other skin conditions. Here, The Laser Treatment Clinic are helping to differentiate rosacea from other very common skin conditions.  VIEW the POST

Easy nightly cleansing routine that everyone can do

The pandemic has influenced our facial complexions. Staying the whole time indoors, allowed only one hour of exercise a day, definitely took its toll. And, the stress of being a working woman and a mother paid its price on my mental wellbeing, which, of course, comes out on your complexion. Be it dark circles, frown lines, or facial dryness, staying inside can influence your face in so many ways. After a heavy fortnight of camping I really needed to get back into my cleansing routine. Not the mention the mask-wearing when we came out of lockdown but were still amid a pandemic. Wearing masks in shopping centers and on trains or buses for hours at a time causes the same air to circle your face, meaning it’s a breeding ground for bacteria. So, even when you take it off after traveling or work, the damage may already be done.

Eco-friendly and vegan products you need in your beauty regime

Eco-friendly and vegan products you need in your beauty regime

Did you know it's World Earth Day on April 22nd 2021 and World Environment Day on 5th June 2021? From the plastic packaging filling land fills, to cosmetic chemicals washing away down the drain and disrupting marine life; our beauty routines can make a huge impact. Over the past year I have been looking out for eco-friendly and vegan products to introduce into my beauty regime. I am really conscious about what products I use, where they come from and how they are made. With more and more brands conscious about this too, products are easier to find and in most cases, I find, better than the originals. My quandary is; if vegan ice cream tastes the same, if not better than, normal ice cream - why not make it all vegan? Here are some products I have been using and I love them. VIEW the POST

The top 3 things to avoid after Botox treatment

The top 3 things to avoid after Botox treatment

It pretty much goes without saying that the aspect of Botox is certainly not something that should be taken lightly under any circumstances. After all, it is not a decision to be taken lightly or casually. It is a decision taken by a very select few people not only because it is too expensive, but there is also the fact that quite a few individuals are rather sceptical about the after-effects of Botox operations across the board. In fact, short of a few years back, hardly anyone outside of the rich community would even consider the idea of Botox since it was too expensive to afford back then. Now, however, it has gotten slightly more affordable and more people are thinking about the Botox option in general. VIEW the POST
