Growing up I’d consider myself to be pretty fortunate in the sense that I never had to struggle with acne and spots *touches wood*… However, I do suffer from eczema flare-ups from time to time – usually on my scalp and various parts of my body, but I occasionally get it on my face too, which has resulted in slight discolouration and scars here and there as you may notice in the photos. Because of that, I have to be extra careful with what I put on my skin and what I feed into my body in order to keep my skin clear and minimise the chances of another eczema attack.
In this post, I’ll be sharing with you five things I do to maintain youthful and clear skin. Continue Reading

For my birthday this year, David and I decided to tick one more item off our bucket list: Drive around the North Coast 500 in Scotland.

North Coast 500 (or simply NC500) is a 500-mile long route of stunning seaside scenery in the far north of Scotland. It’s nicknamed ‘Scotland’s Route 66’; it’s widely known as one of the top coastal road trips in the world; in fact, it’s been tipped as “the Best Road Trip in the World” by Condé Nast Traveler… you get the picture!

It’s nuts to think that it’s only been a month since I was in Seville. It seems like a lifetime ago we were wandering and getting lost in the Sevillean streets yet I can almost still feel that Spanish sun beaming on my face…
As I’m gearing up to embark on yet another big birthday adventure (I went to Lisbon for my birthday last year – read about it!), which I no doubt will want to share about, I thought I’d better get my
shit act together and start blogging again… and this time I’ll keep my promise. I promise.
So here you go, F I V E things you should know about Seville if you’re planning on visiting:
Now that there’s definitely a chill in the air, it’s time to talk about transitional fashion. For me, the autumn/winter can only mean a number of things: fewer hours of daylight but many more opportunities to play with layers; dialling down the temperature but dialling up the toastiness… all the way up!
In this post, I’m going to show you how I style my trusty black overcoat – a style staple of mine, here’s why… Continue Reading

(This one is coming to you a little bit later than I would’ve liked but better late than never, right? Right.)
About 10 days before D and I took off to Asia, we went on a little Bank Holiday trip with two of our dear friends, Asma and Mo of Jet Set Chick fame. We went to Norway, stayed in a beautiful Airbnb on the island of Tjøme, and had a brilliant time.
Now we rarely ever go on holidays with friends. We might have gone on holidays ‘to see friends’ but not often ‘with friends’, and from this trip, I picked up a few tips and tricks to organising a getaway with a group of people – and here they are. Continue Reading
