OCTOBER FAVOURITE

I am one of those people who become nostalgic as summer comes to an end. I miss the beach, the sun and my tan that I have tried so hard to perfect. I don’t have the power to bring summer back but fortunately I have discovered the Dior self-tanner which quickly became my absolute favourite. It is subtle and very easy to apply, most importantly no orange look but a yummy bronze. It will not make you very dark but gives a natural glow to your skin. The lovely subtle colour mimics having spent a little time in the sun. It blended perfectly with my skin colour and I saw no streaks.

COFFEE TALK

While my personal philosophy is that you should aim to make everyday wonderful, with my increasingly busy schedule revolving around work and personal development,  it’s not too difficult to get caught up in the routine. It is harder than ever before to find time for the things I enjoy, be it a nice walk, girl talk, reading a new book, morning run, or drinking coffee. Imagine that you had one day without stressing over work, thinking about school, or other responsibilities. What would your perfect day look like? Would you stay in bed for as long as you can? Maybe you would read a book? Or would you prefer to sit in the sun, sip your favourite drink and watch the people walk by? Tell me all about it.
