Getting Under The Skin

Hello.....Still there?

I wouldn't blame you if you'd forgotten about's been a while. Two years to be exact! Admittedly, I was a few clicks away myself from pressing delete and letting it be one of the many things in my life that I've buried in the past.

Two years is a long time and even before then my regular posts were slacking. There's a multitude of reasons but mainly it didn't seem to take priority anymore. 2017, even thought in hindsight is the greatest lucky escape I'll ever have, is buried so far down as years go it's essentially dead to me so let's not go into that. 2018 was not the most groundbreaking year either (although I made some amazing memories) but it was my learning year. A trial and error of learning all over again what I like and don't like. By the end of it I had found what I'd been missing out on for years as well as discovering gaps that I needed to fill to feel driven and fulfilled again.  Not just in hobbies but also friendships, personal relationships and a career. But most of all, I realised how much I missed this....simply sitting on the sofa or in a quiet little coffee shop just writing. No blog plans, no schedules, no photograper, just a moment when the inspiration arrives and typing away.

But a new year opens up a fresh start. No matter how cliche it sounds, it's true. So here I am, back on the internet writing about anything that comes to mind. So if you're new to here, hello and if you're a returning reader, thanks for coming back. There's a lot of exciting things to look forward to and the plan is to share as many little snippets of it as and when I'm armed with my camera and plenty of words!

This month I've been:

Soaking my skin in the Sunday Riley Luna Sleeping Oil before bed. Usually my combination/oily skin is not a fan of oils on the face but this stuff works wonders overnight! With enough retinol to make you look 10 years younger in 8 hours this blue liquid is great at tackling the spots that will not budge.

Fighting hormonal breakouts with a few drops of the Glossier Pure Serum. Packed with the essential shopping list of blemish busting ingredients it's my go-to serum for winter.

Pampering my dry, flaky skin (gross, I know) in the Herbivore Botanicals Jasmine Body Oil. The smell is incredible and well-worth purchasing to keep skin hydrated against drying winter and central heating!
