Who said it’s the January blues???

Thank god it’s almost February. With each day that passes we are that little bit closer to Spring. I always find myself wishing this part of the year away which probably isn’t a good thing. But what can I say? I’m not a fan of the cold! The time has flown by though. It seems like only yesterday I was stuffing my face with Christmas dinner. But I suppose time fly’s when it’s busy. And despite the winter weather January has been a good month for me. Definitely no blues to report so far this year. View Post

penhaligons fragrance review

I’m a little late getting around to this post as I went for fragrance profiling at Penhaligons in December. I remember rushing to my appointment at the store on Burlington Arcade.

To work from home has it’s benefit’s that’s for sure. You can wear whatever you want and of course I make the most of this. Expect to find me in running pants and a large hoodie whenever I’m indoors. The second upside is the time and hassle you save not having to travel to an office everyday. This is probably my favourite part of working from home. On the flip side motivation can sometimes slip and the distraction of YouTube or online shopping doesn’t make things any easier. There’s something to be said for a boss looking over your shoulder when you have a deadline to meet.

If you work from home I’m assuming you are freelance. If that’s the case then getting the job done is a priority because those bills won’t be paying themselves.

A cook book for every mood…

My boyfriend and I got a beautiful cook book for Christmas – thank you Ellen! It’s called NOPI and has impressive recipes, perfect for showing off every now and then. Whilst flicking through the pages I realised I have hardly any cook books. So, I thought it would be fun to see what’s new and put together a healthyish wish list.
