It is quite noticeable how quieter it has been around here lately. Since November 2016, I've not put out there the usual number of posts I used to do every month and that is totally ok. I am not saying this is a bad thing at all, because I honestly do not think it is. I am currently going through an important period of my life and whilst I am doing my very best to keep the lights on in this space, I think it is perfectly fine to take a step back once in a while to focus on other priorities.

25 aka quarter of a century. Maybe turning 25 won't be so bad. I can still choose if I want to be wise and mature, or young and care-free. I have every excuse to have a quarter life crisis. 25 means lower car rental rates (even if I don't have a driver's license lol). I can totally justify buying expensive cosmetics; gotta keep that skin young! I am still a "young adult" and have 15 years before "middle age". 30 is the new 20, haven't you heard?! I'll always be ten days older than my future husband but I still look pretty young for my age. I get to celebrate with pizza, family and friends, and most importantly cake!

If I told you I took care of my skin extremely well in 2016, I'd be lying. I know our skin is our body's largest organ and that it serves as a protective barrier between our insides and the rest of the world, and it helps regulate body temperature and acts as a filter. Yet, I am as lazy as one can be when it comes to treating my skin right and am often neglecting it from what it really needs. I often forget to give my skin as much care and attention as it deserves and this year I need to make a change. I am not just referring to facial skincare which I've improved a lot lately thankfully, but also body-care which is my biggest challenge as I very much dislike moisturising every day even though I really should. Thankfully my skin isn't too dehydrated but I can only imagine how much better it would look and feel if I actually gave it some TLC. I am now aware that my skin works 24/7 to protect my body from harsh weather (which we seem to get a lot in the UK this time of year), UV rays, injuries, pain and a host of other unpleasant sensations. Setting aside a few minutes each day to tend to my skin seems a small price I will have to pay and these are my 2017 skincare resolutions.

January is here and inevitably, we are heading into the thick of winter. This winter is set to be one of the worst in years (although they do say that every year, don't they?!) and if there is one season you need to prep your wardrobe for, this is it. Despite little chance of snow or any sort of polar vortexes, fog and chilly weather is coming our way even more so and there are a few things you need to have in your closet to get you through this time. I don't know about you, but I'd rather be really hot than at any moment feel cold so I am prepared! With this in mind I've picked my 10 winter wardrobe essentials that will cover all bases. And no, I'm not just talking about coats and knitwear because that'd be too easy. I am also adding a few chic ideas because yes you can look good and warm during winter too!
