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.

I say this every year but ‘I can’t believe it’s Christmas time already‘.

The preparations are my favourite part of the holidays. There are so many nice things happening and everything looks so pretty and cozy. It’s time to get a tree and start planning the dinner. Turkey, goose or duck, who can decide? Every year I have a list of rituals. There’s mince pies, champagne, brussel sprouts, a selection of movies that gets longer every year. Because it wouldn’t be Christmas without watching the snowman and shedding a tear when he melts at the end. This time I’ve added a festive jumper to the mix. Not any old jumper I might add. It’s an ‘iconic Ralph Lauren jumper’ that’ll last for years to come – and I’m struggling to cope with how cute it is.

“It’s up to us to make personal changes to protect our planet and not rely solely on the governments.”

I have an uneasy feeling whenever I throw food packaging in the bin. Yes, it’s a recycling bin but the amount of plastic I throw away just doesn’t feel right. The world seems chaotic. With the natural disasters, political mayhem and general intolerance to each other. I feel like we’re facing difficult times and the universe is giving us a taste of our own medicine. For years I’ve heard environmentalists warning the governments about the effects of climate change. I don’t know about you but I’m not waiting for anyone. There’s power in numbers and we are the one’s to make the changes by the decisions we make.

I’m going away next week so I wanted to show you the skincare products I will be taking with me. Kiehl’s surprised me with a wash bag with some products recently and I plan to make good use of it. Clear bags like this are great if you are traveling with hand luggage as you don’t need to bother with the clear bags they give you at the airport. I tend to take the minimum when traveling unless I’m going to the beach so no masks, exfoliators or any of that nonsense. It’s usually cleanser, moisturiser, serum, SPF, deodorant and shampoo.

There are those moments in life when I feel so satisfied. I wish the feeling could go on and, on and….. Apparently life needs it’s ups and its downs because if there weren’t the downs we wouldn’t enjoy the ups quite so much. This whole situation got me thinking about things that trigger the happiness alarm in my brain. Yes, I could list exotic holidays and shopping sprees but that wouldn’t be particularly useful now would it. So I’m going to list the simplest things that leave me feeling somewhat content, happy and satisfied. View Post
