So it’s that time of year where hopefully we’ll be baring our skin. Now I’m not sure about you but some parts of my body resemble something of a reptile after winter. The cold winter months can really dry out your skin leaving it dehydrated and flakey. A quick fix to resolve this is with a body oil. Oils provide your skin with the moisture and hydration it needs to recover.
Although sandals might be the last thing on your shopping list with the weather right now, it couldn't be a better time to buy them. We can't tell you how many times we've waited for the weather to warm up only to find our favourite styles have already sold out. So to help you get a head start we've rounded up our top 10 favourites from the high street right now.
I organise a ski trip yearly for myself, my husband and a group of friends. It’s quite a task meeting everyone’s needs and it can also be a little overwhelming! Needing a little support last year, I booked through Alpine Generations.They were such a great help
With the baby arriving in May we're having to find more creative space saving ideas to make the best of our little London flat. This super easy console table came about as I needed something slim but tall enough to cover a radiator and couldn't find anything with the right dimensions. It was so easy to do though and saved me a tonne of money. I'm now trying to think of what else I can attach hairpin legs to!
Nail trends by the seasons can be pretty predictable: soft watercolours for spring, candy-hued brights for summer, and moodier reds, blues, and greys for autumn and winter. However, this year in the spring/summer runway shows they seemed to have hundreds for us to obsess over
The Defiant Ones traces the rise of two men who have helped create the modern musical landscape: Jimmy Iovine and Dr. Dre - the co-founders of Beats Electronics who sold their Beats headphone company to Apple Inc. for $3 billion, the largest acquisition in Apple's history. It's utterly fascinating to see how these men became so successfu but be warned it may leave you feeling a little worthless.
A five ingredient show stopper dessert that takes five minutes to make and can be prepared ahead of time, it ticks every box for us! We made these last week as an Easter treat and they were absolutely delicious. They taste like the inside of a Lindt chocolate ball and are actually fairly healthy using nut milk (we used almond) and dark chocolate! For the full recipe click here.
The Blue Notebook was released in 2004. Excuse the delay in finding it. Max Richter, a British-based, German-born pianist and composer evokes an almost overwhelming atmosphere of nostalgia in this beautifully recorded instrumental album. Blending classical, electronic, and rock influences into a style he calls "post-classical," I guess this is the case of somethings are worth waiting for.
