I just bought a couple of cream cleansers from beautiful KORA Organics by Miranda Kerr to try, as I had not tried the cleansers before and had just run out of a cleanser at home 🕊🌸 the cream cleansers come in beautiful light blue, green packaging with a white lid, which has a rose gold rim. The cleansers are also noted to be suitable for suitable for dry skin, and although my skin is quite sensitive the cream cleanser feels so lovely to use in the winter as the weather is a bit cooler and can be a bit drying on the skin.
Here is a post about a couple of my favourite art works (including a couple of paintings and a monument). I studied environmental studies at University, although I also studied art history at high school and it is one of my favourite subjects. I enjoy learning about different artists and the culture from where artists are from and how they are inspired to create paintings and sculptures. The paintings I chose include the Water Lilies series by Claude Monet, a French Impressionist painter, and the Kiss by Gustav Klimt, an Austrian painter from Vienna, of la belle époque. The monument I chose is called the Winged Victory of Samothrace from the Louvre in Paris and the monument is noted to be from about 190 to 180 BC and to be made of Parian marble🕊🌸
I made an order for a couple of products to try from KORA Organics a couple of days ago, and the parcel just came yesterday. The products I bought to try include a face mist called the Balancing rose mist and a face mask called the Clay purifying mask (a blog post about the beautiful face mask coming soon). The Balancing rose mist is so beautiful, has a light and delicate floral scent and feels light, nourishing and so refreshing to use 🕊🌸
In early 2017 we got a family labrador puppy called Ruby, and she was chosen by my younger brother Chris, from a farm. We had not had a puppy before and here are a couple of puppy care tips we found to be helpful for looking after Ruby 🕊🌸 she is a kind pup and hopefully the tips could help in case you have a labrador or puppy too, or are hoping to get a puppy soon, or in the future.

I bought a copy of a book called the Curated Closet by Anuschka Rees in 2017. I bought the book just after Kitty Cotten, a kind lifestyle blogger, noted it could be a helpful book for someone who is hoping to create a capsule wardrobe, or to carefully create a wardrobe with pieces you truly love and are helpful for your lifestyle. The Curated Closet book is a generous size with a beautiful soft pink cover, and has lovely and inspiring fashion photography throughout the book. I am part of the way through the book, and hoping to carefully follow the chapters and tips shared by the author Anuschka Rees, to help to build a dream wardrobe.

Here is a recipe for blueberry muffins from a muffin cook book of my Mum's we have at home. The blueberry muffins are one of my favourite things to bake and I often bake the muffins every couple of weeks. You could hopefully find the ingredients for the muffins in your garden and at your local shop and you could also add a different berry or fruit in case you don't have any blueberries at home, or if there is a different fruit you love to bake with 🕊💕
Here is a second song playlist of songs I love and have been listening to quite a lot recently. There are a couple of songs on the playlist by Izzy Bizu, an English singer and songwriter from London, England. Izzy Bizu is one of my favourite singers and artists and her songs are so lovely, natural and uplifting, with pretty lyrics. There are also a couple of songs by Carla Bruni and Brigitte Bardot, inspired by my friend Alanna (@mycelluloidscenes_) who recommended a couple of songs by French singers to listen to (thank you Alanna) 🕊🌸
