Lifestyle: 2017 Recap

I shared my 2017 highlights on my Instagram stories today and I loved looking back on all the memories we have made this year. Comparing your life to someone's highlight reel on social media can make you feel a bit down, but appreciating the life you have and the people around you is what it's all about. I couldn't be more grateful for a year of making memories with my family and I thought I should share them on the blog too.

Our Christmas Eve traditions

Christmas is a magical time in our house. From decorations, festive scents and yummy food, to the atmosphere and little traditions I like to get the kids involved in. One of the most special parts of the celebrations for us is Christmas Eve, as the build up of excitement reaches it's peak level and the kids cannot wait to wake up the next day to find their presents under the tree.

Season's Cleanings

With Christmas only days away, I am secretly relieved that I am not hosting any guests this festive season. I get myself all worked up and panic and as a self confessed hoarder, I always have a lot of organising to do. The team at Vorwerk asked me to take part in their Season’s Cleanings campaign, designed to reveal the lengths people go to when it comes to impressing guests and I am going to tell you all about my cleaning habits.

Giorgio Armani Ecstasy Shine Lipsticks

I am a huge fan of Giorgio Armani lip products, especially the incredible Lip Magnets, so I was really excited to try the new Ecstasy Shine Lipsticks*(£29.00). Using matte lipsticks all the time can be a bit drying for the lips, so it's important to switch things up and go back to more hydrating formulas like this one. Can you see the gorgeous shine?
