The Perfect Bath Time

The Perfect Bath Time

It’s about now I’m looking for the relaxation and tranquility of the bath.

Although a day spent in the cold Christmas air leaves us feeling festive, it can be damaging for our skin in ways that even the best moisturiser cannot fix.

In Europe, the winter chill is well underway and there is no better remedy than sinking into a hot and delicious bath.

Checking In With Tartan

Checking In With Tartan

I am checking in because I am sentimental.

Here’s how I got started. 
I am talking tartan.


A quick chat about a trip down memory lane and a small addition to my wardrobe; seems about right for this time of the year.
My school uniform was Black Watch tartan accessorised with a white blouse and opaque black tights in winter.

The “What She Wants” Gift Guide #1


What she wants when she can have anything she wants.
