My friend called on Friday as I was wracking my brains for something to blog about. I was completely stuck and trying to think of something was beginning to annoy me (totally blaming it on the recent new moon of Scorpio). Anyway, when I picked up I could tell my friend was not right and I quickly asked what was going on. To cut a long story short she was overwhelmed with everything going on in her life and didn’t know what to do. As we chatted on the phone I tried to offer some tips and advice to help her stay centered whilst everything else swirls around like a tornado. Most of us experience some level of stress on a regular (if not daily) basis and after I hung up from my friend I considered my increasing writers block and put it down to the juggling act of managing tasks. The increasing demands of daily life aren’t going anywhere so testing out techniques to navigate the daily grind became the inspiration for today’s post. View Post

I decided it was time to give my skincare cupboard an overhaul and stock up on some exciting products that I haven’t tried before. Some things are from brands I already know and love plus a couple of new discoveries that I am excited to introduce. I haven’t been using anything for very long so this is more of a first impressions and I’m pleased to say – so far, so good. View Post

It’s crazy to think just a couple of weeks ago I was wandering through the streets of Valencia wearing shorts and a t-shirt. The flight from here is around two hours yet it felt so far away from chilly, autumnal Germany. The architecture is stunning and what I loved most is that the city has a beach. In Spain most places shut down mid afternoon so the locals can take a siesta and escape from the heat. Dinner starts late and the overall atmosphere is laid back with lot’s of outdoor restaurants and places to drink in the evening. Just like my recent London Photo Diary I took photo’s using my iPhone as I wandered through the historic city. View Post

I’m on a fashion frenzy at the moment. I can’t stop thinking about outfits and I’m blaming it on this blog! Whilst I’m evolving my sense of style I’m still conscious of waste and the importance of investment pieces vs throw away fashion. As a blogger there can be a pressure to constantly wear something new. With that in mind I’m trying to rework individual pieces to create different looks without always buying something new – unless I decide it’s a worthy addition. Cultivating your own sense of style is a confidence booster but a passion for fashion can leave you with piles of clothes that have hardly been worn. In today’s post I’m taking this three piece outfit and explaining the place each item has in my wardrobe.

Autumn has officially kicked off so on Sunday I decided to get the camera and go for a walk in my area to capture the beautiful leaves before they fall down. Not relishing the thought of a long cold winter I reluctantly waved goodbye to Summer last week. Now that the trees are turning colour and it’s cold but not yet freezing I’m warming up, like I always do, to a cozy autumn period. View Post
