Sometimes its nice to put down the beauty products & talk about what makes you happy. So thats what I’m doing in this post. After a tough few years you discover the small things that make a difference & these are a few things that have been making me happy.
I really like the changing of the seasons. Its like the cycle of a new season starts a clean slate, an opportunity to start fresh & set new goals. Its a reminder that nothing is forever & change isn’t always a bad thing. I love to see the leaves on the trees throughout the year changing from lush and green to golden brown & eventually watching them fall to the ground marking the end of another year. I feel a comfort with the changing of the seasons & Autumn will always be my favourite. It’s so beautiful, I have been enjoying the crisp fresh mornings sipping on my chai tea. I like watching Autumn slowly slipping into Winter. What season is your favourite?
I love this time of year for all the Christmas releases & limited edition products. Top of that list is LUSH I don’t ever go too mad in there but I treat myself to a couple of things from their Festive range. So far I have used Butter Bear & Melting Snowman, both are really nice but as you may have seen from this post Butter Bear is my favourite so far. It’s soothing and left my skin so soft & at £1.95 its one of LUSH’s more affordable products. Also bubble baths have to be one of the most relaxing things to do on a cold winters evening so LUSH & relaxing baths just go hand in hand.
I have been spending quite a lot of time in Scotland over the past few years & the silver lining on a bad situation is that I get to spend time with my family & these two Munchkins are my niece Alyvia & my brother Gary. We always have a lot of fun & its nice getting to spend afternoons with them sipping hot chocolates & planning adventures.
St Andrews is such a beautiful place, John & I always take time out to visit when we’re in Scotland. It’s just so calm and relaxing not to mention utterly picturesque. Even though its a very small place it gives you everything it has in abundance – history, architecture, windswept beaches and Ice Cream (good ice cream is important). I never tire of walking around the quaint streets and I’m looking forward to visiting in November. Winter in St Andrews is cold but beautiful, its an excuse to stop for a coffee to warm up your hands. Have you been to St Andrews?
