The moment we’ve been all waiting for is almost around the corner. As all things, the festive season will pass before we know it and this year I made a promise to myself that I would really make the most out of it because it’s important to truly live every second and do something a little bit more festive this season. Here are my top holiday tips for you on how to make the most out of your time.
Hello my lovelies,
I’ve recently fallen in love with eyeshadow again: matt, glittery or glossy, I’m here for all of it just in time for the festive season. If you’re deciding on your holiday glam, then it’s the perfect time to have a look at the 2 festive looks you need to wear this season.
It’s the most wonderful time of the year (hello, my first December post)! We’re all getting invites to catch-ups before Christmas, want to go ice skating in five different places, want to do shopping almost every weekend, have to attend social events and so on. Truth being said, it’s a very busy and (dare I say) a little bit tiring period of the year. Don’t get me wrong I love Christmas and its beautiful charm, but I feel that we as a society came up with a ‘festive madness’ that makes us all look a bit mad when you think about it. In this context, we’re looking at how to keep organised during the festive season and if you stay until the end, I’m sharing a productivity secret that you need to know – it helped me so many times!
Hello my lovelies,

Hello my lovelies,
If you follow me on Instagram, you might know that I’ve recently cut my hair (screams) live on my Instagram Stories. If that’s not first hand entertainment, then I don’t know what is. Since then, I’ve been learning a tricks or two about how to style short hair. Clue: it’s easier than you think if you follow these simple steps.
Hello my lovelies,
Are you feeling inspired to create content? Do you feel like documenting your journey or teaching others something new? Either you already started your social presence or blog, or you’re thinking about starting any of these, here are my best kept secrets for Content Creation in 2019.
How have you been? Since it’s National Stress Week, I thought it’s the right time to talk about stress and how to deal with it at work from my own rather short experience. It might be tempting to take things to heart in an office environment, but you have to remember that everyone deals with stress in a different way. Don’t take anything personally and focus on making your life easier first.
I’ve been enjoying playing around with different styles this Autumn and I’ve been testing this very interesting concept of seeing how style can impact on my self-confidence while I perform everyday tasks. Keep on reading to find out the incredible results and perhaps to get inspired to take action.
Hello there Autumn lovers or soon to be Autumn lovers after you read this post 😉
I’m feeling incredibly inspired by the weather, rain and the lit candles all around my house, as this year, I really went the extra mile with making everything look Autumnal. If you’re the type of person who loves decorating her home or like to admire decors in other people’s places, this post is definitely for you. By the end of it, I want you to walk away inspired to decorate your home and feel more positive about Autumn (and life in general). Let’s go through this little DYI that I have prepared for you, shall we?
There are so many ways in which you can embrace the season, but today I’m going to show you how to create this very beautiful and amazingly scented table decoration! Ah, it makes me so happy every time I look at it or walk past it. It’s the perfect way to embrace Autumn: looking at its colours right in your living room while reading a good book while wrapped in a cozy blanket.
What you’ll need:
- A plate or tray
- A large candle jar
- Some small candles
- Dry oranges, small peppers and cinnamon sticks
- Dry leafs (picked up from outside)
- A small pumpkin
- Take your plate and set the dry oranges, peppers and cinnamon sticks.
I’ve found this cute pack at a local farm in Surrey, but I’m sure that you can dry your own oranges and place some cinnamon sticks that you can find in your kitchen. Don’t worry about making it look perfect at this point.
2. Pick up some nice coloured leafs and place them on the plate above the dried oranges
I picked this beautiful one up when I was coming back from town on no special occasion. Next time you’re out and about, remember to pick some nice leafs on your way back home. You can always find fun ways to display them in your home and for this decoration leafs are just perfect.
3. Add a large candle jar
If you’re feeling extra (as you should this season), go for a Halloween themed scented candle. It will make your table decoration even more Autumnal! I was so happy to find this Yankee Candle Limited Edition Witches’ Brew on Notino. It has a woody fragrance and make your living room smell like you’re about to create a spooky spell. Not to mention, the name got me hooked!
4. Place a small pumpkin on the plate for a really Autumnal vibe
I picked this pretty baby while pumpkin picking in Surrey, but any pumpkin will do. You can find some at your local market or even pick your own (I can guarantee it’s so much fun).
5. Lastly, add some small candles
I’m in love with the Yankee candles the baby edition! I’m getting bored quite easily by candle scents, so lighting them in small amounts is what I prefer to do. They smell amazing, just like a chill day of Autumn. My absolute favourite is the Yankee Candle Autumn Glow which smells rather sweet. If you prefer a stronger scent, then the Yankee Candle Autumn Night is perfect for you. For my cinnamon fans, the Yankee Candle Cinnamon Stick is great for the end of month, when we’re starting to think about Christmas! These last for longer than you might think, however you need to be careful as they tend to melt and drip. Just use a special plate when you decide to light one to avoid creating a mess. Find your favourite Yankee Candles.
And you’re done! I hope you’re excited to have this beautiful table decoration around your house. Feel positive and embrace this wonderful season.
Ah, I almost forgot. I’m such a skincare addict and in Autumn/Winter I tend to switch to hydrating and moisturising products. My hero product this month is the Vichy Minéral 89. The serum is absorbed quickly into my skin, without leaving it sticky. It feels really moisturising! I’ve always felt that a hydrating serum is such a must for the cold season. Plus, how can you resist this beautiful packaging?
Let me know in the comments below, are you excited to try out the DYI?

Lots of love,
Happy Summer! How are you feeling about having the sun out everyday? For me that’s just perfect. It feels like I’ve been spending way too much time outside in the garden enjoying drinks and going through my favourite fashion magazines. I also LOVE having friends over and enjoying drinks that I’ve specifically prepared for us.
