Glitter & Sparkle
Under Your Spell
I’m sure that Mothers around the world love being acknowledged for their ‘mum-powers’ by their adoring children. I’m very honoured that my little girls think of me as their very own magical wish-fairy! I received this amazing title a couple of years ago after they had a tug-of-war over a small toy which they both desperately wanted. In their minds I granted a magic-wish and conjured up another toy that was exactly the same as the one they were fighting over (little did they know I luckily had a spare which meant Mummy – 1 and Toy Dilemma ...
Pucker Up This Autumn
Autumn has officially arrived and so begin the first confusing few weeks of not knowing what to wear or what to pack when leaving the house… sunglasses and a light jacket, or umbrellas and puffer coats? That’s apart from a good red lipstick of course…that’s essential.
My love for red lips comes from my mum, it’s her ‘thing’ and suits her so beautifully. It’s one of those memories I will always cherish - those perfect red lips (and nails), applied with absolute precision to make an elegant and sophisticated statement.
Beautifully Bold this Autumn
No September Blues
Summer has literally flown by, but then, of course it would with two little energetic five year olds enjoying their six week long holiday, while my husband and I frantically juggled work and entertaining them, in between packing and moving house! Thankfully our hard work and sleepless nights culminated in a relaxing week in the beautiful, sunny Menorca where we could finally put our feet up before the new school year started. Needless to say the rush and craziness was all worth it. What a paradise! We had the most amazing time sharing a ...
The Circle of Life
The Joy of Decluttering
Joshua Becker said that “The first step in crafting the life you want is to get rid of everything you don't.” This is where I am this August.
As mentioned in last month’s blog we are moving to a new house and whilst I’m super excited, I’m also apprehensive about the amount of packing I’ve still got to do! I’m turning it into a positive by having a little de-clutter session along the way and clearing out everything we don’t need or use, from old clothes, DVD’s that are now redundant, to my daughters disregarded toys (if they ...
Dare to Bare
Here Comes The Sun…
I don’t want to speak too soon but I think summer has finally arrived in England! The days are longer, the sun is shining, and I’ve replaced my usual soup lunch with crispy, colourful, yummy salads. Happy days! ☺
Of course, with summer comes the school holidays and hopefully, some much needed time to relax and unwind, but this summer holds extra excitement for our little family. Apart from our girls finishing their first year at primary school (they adore their school which makes me so happy☺), and the 6 week-long summer holidays ...
Nature & Nurture
Mother Nature, the Natural Beauty…
I think every parent skipped for joy when their newsfeeds were flooded with images of the Duchess of Cambridge unveiling her 'Back to Nature' garden at the Royal Chelsea Flower Show last month. The playful landscape featured a rope swing, a trickling waterfall and a woodland wonderland - all of which brings back beautiful memories of childhood times. We live in a digital-age now but seeing little Princes George and Louis, and the gorgeous Princess Charlotte, innocently playing and wandering barefoot around the garden, shows that ...
Yes, you May...
There is just nothing like a well-deserved holiday that is stress-free, work-free and phone-free. And the beauty of an ‘offline’ break is that days seem longer and life becomes more interesting when we take a step back and just enjoy everything around us!
My mum’s visit from South Africa was perfect and packed full of sunshine, fun and relaxation with her, and of course my two favourite girls. From visiting Paradise Wildlife Park to beautiful afternoon teas at the Ritz and in a princess carriage at House of Fraser (can I please be little again? ...
Relaxed, Renewed, Reborn
A Spring in my step
The countdown has officially begun until my mum’s visit in a couple of weeks! Almost a year has passed since we last all saw each other, and with Easter and the school holidays upon us, I have no doubt that these two weeks together are going to be extra special. A year may not be much in terms of all the living that we do but seeing the significant changes that my girls go through at their youthful 4 years of age, through someone else’s eyes who doesn’t see them as often as I do, is just wonderful. I cannot wait for my Mum to see them and ...
The Future is Female
Lucky Number Seven
Every March I do a little happy dance as I celebrate another year in business. How fantastic to say that on the 1st March 2019, I marked my seventh glorious year of owning my own Permanent Make Up and Microblading clinic in London.
I love that my work anniversary falls in the same month as International Women’s Day on the 8th March. Life can throw curve balls at us from all directions but thankfully we’re surrounded and supported by beautiful, strong women who pick us up when we fall down, see our potential even when we doubt ourselves, believe ...
Made with Love
And just like that, February the “mini-month” has arrived! For me, February is like the bridge between cold, grey January and “spring-is-in-sight-March”, linking the two together and making us excited and eagerly anticipating the warmer, longer days that are just around the corner. February oozes love and excitement! You can’t walk around the corner without seeing adverts filled with hearts and shops showing the love with their beautiful red and pink window displays. Restaurants invite us inside with their romantic themed dinners and hotels seduce us with their ...
