Chunky Autumn & Winter Knits


Don’t we just love cosy chunky knits during the autumn and winter season! Well, we are in luck – as this year there are lots of beautiful jumpers to choose from whatever your preference or budget.

Bras – The Foundation For A Smooth Silhouette

Bermuda Shorts With Ruffles


Grey is not the colour I usually go for when buying clothing  Matter of fact is, I have just a few pieces in my closet. Probably can count them on one hand – and I can’t even recall when I wore them last. However, I believe this shade of grey is pretty against my skin tone. I wanted to style the Bermuda shorts with a black top – but had a change of mind and decided to soften the look, with a simple grey pullover instead. The…

Hyaluronic Acid For Smoother Skin


When it comes to my skin care routine I believe less is better – so for years I’ve cleansed my skin, used sunscreen and a good moisturiser which worked perfectly well for me. However, for the past few years, I noticed that my skin was not as supple as it once was. Yes, I know with age skin loses elasticity, becomes dehydrated, fine lines appear. I’ve read it all. My idea is to maintain that plump radiant looking skin for as…
