In an attempt to brighten up my Wednesdays, I’ve decided to create a midweek playlist. Nothing revolutionary or original, that’s for sure. But I thought a collection of songs I’m loving at the moment would be a swell way to lift my (and hopefully your) humpday spirits.
When it comes to skincare, there are some products that will stand the test of time. Liz Earle’s Cleanse and Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser is undoubtedly one of them. A cult classic in the world of beauty, this cleanser encompasses everything good about natural, stripped-back skincare.
There are some trends you look back on and think, what in God’s name were we doing? All-over crimped hair is definitely up on that list for me, and up until recently so were coloured lens sunglasses. Pushed way down to the bottom of my imaginary dress-up box of trends of yesteryear, I didn’t expect to see the day I’d be lusting after a pair of purple gradient lens sunglasses again come around anytime soon. 2017, however, had other plans.
The best kind of breaks are city breaks.
There’s nothing more exciting to me than wandering down meandering lanes to find boutique cafés, surrounding yourself with ancient architecture and immersing yourself in a different way of life, even if just for a long weekend. Florence is the destination of choice to experience all of the above, as well as enough pizza to ruin any chance of a summer body. But no ragrets here.
We all have the best intentions when it comes to New Year’s resolutions or setting ourselves goals. When I get to a point where I decide to make a change to my lifestyle, I’m usually so ready to challenge myself and start something new.
Unfortunately, that enthusiasm can be fleeting. We’ve all found ourselves in that position at some point, particularly with New Year’s resolutions. Even when I’ve set resolutions I think are more realistic, they usually end up incomplete or forgotten.
