I had a ‘lightbulb’ moment recently with my blog, I suddenly had multiple posts and ideas that I wanted to get down so I grabbed my camera and starting snapping away. It feels SO good to be writing on my blog again and I hope I can prioritise my time well so that I can keep this momentum going!
So, to kick things off, I wanted to share with you some things that have firmly placed themselves in my heart and everyday life.
First up is my wonderful Diptyque Figuier Room Spray. I have been using this spray everyday, it’s a very strong scent but if you love the candle, you will love this. It is absolutely divine! I’ve never had a room spray that has worked quite as well as this one, the scent just lingers for so long and it is my favourite thing to spray, especially when I’ve got fresh bedding on! I’m not the best at describing scents, but Figuier is a very fresh, figgy (lol) smell and it’s just perfect for spring time.
My everyday make up essentials are courtesy of the wonderful Glossier. I have been applying the Skin Tint every day for the past month, while the coverage is very sheer, the glow this gives is incredible! it’s also super hydrating which makes it a dream to apply to the skin and my concealer also sits on top very nicely. Besides the skin tint and concealer, the only other make up item I’ve been using is the Glossier Boy Brow. I cannot get enough of this amazing product. I’m now on my second tube and I’m already thinking about ordering two more. The tiny little brush gives off the perfect amount of product when applied, I usually like to then take a cotton bud and shape them up as much as I can. Seriously, If you don’t already have this, you need to get your hands on it.
I’ve never really been a huge perfume person, I’ve always had it bought for me for birthdays and so on. However, this all changed when I was gifted Mojave Ghost by Byredo from Olly for Christmas just gone. I have never smelt a fragrance like this before. It is my absolute favourite perfume I own which is unfortunate for my bank account as it’s MEGA expensive. It’s definitely one to save up for a real treat yourself moment. I’m just so obsessed with this dreamy scent and I can’t wait to smell more fragrances from Byredo.
Reading is something that I have been enjoying in general. I try to make time for myself to read at least every day and I truly think of it as an act of self care. My most recent reading favourite comes in the form of The F Word by Lily Pebbles. This book celebrates female friendships of all kinds and it truly is a wonderful read. I’m halfway through and I’ve already laughed, empathised and nodded along in agreement. I haven’t read a book quite like this and I love that it has Lily’s spin on it. Since reading this, I can safely say that I have sat and thought about my own female friendships and I value them more now that I realise how amazing it is to have such different, strong and independent women around me. If you haven’t already picked up Lily’s new book, I strongly recommend you do as it’s a pleasure to read.
These products and I have a good thing going at the moment and I couldn’t be happier with them. What are your favourite things at the moment? Let me know!
