Bedtime luxury: The Holistic Silk Lavender Eye Mask

Sometimes I stumble across an item that is so exquisitely beautiful that I cannot help but yield, which is exactly what happened with the Holistic Silk Lavender Eye Mask. I use eye masks nightly to block out light and the Holistic Silk mask is perfect for me, both aesthetically and functionally.

Thoughts on The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying

I realised just how popular Marie Kondo's book was when I asked nonchalantly for "that book about tidying" at my local bookstore, and I was given it within seconds by a teenaged shop assistant who couldn't have been more unlike Martha Stewart if he tried. It seems everyone has been seduced by Kondo's message of paring back one's possessions to only what 'sparks joy'. Today, I won't be rehashing the whole book (that has been done at length by many, many people), but instead I'll share three thoughts I took away from reading The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying.

Jo Malone Cologne and Body Creme Duo

For this past Christmas, my boyfriend gave me a most beautiful gift from Jo Malone: a Peony & Blush Suede Cologne, paired with a jar of Wood Sage and Sea Salt Body Crème. It sat for a few weeks, taunting me from under the tree, so I was overjoyed to be able to finally use it come Christmas morning.
