Transitioning with Zara


We're at the start of spring and the beginning of April, a time for a new season. Spring is so beautiful, I don't see how anyone can not appreciate spring. We are in the transition period, some days are still chilli enough for a scarf, other days a coat alone is better suited.

I picked up this coat from Zara, who are killing it right now! I also couldn't resist getting one of their scarfs, because they are so big and cosy! This coat isn't that thick either so this combination is great to have for this transition period!

A place called home


Goodbye little flat, you have been good to us. I am so glad I listened when we were choosing you.

Goodbye pretty blossom tree that greeted us when we first moved in. Goodbye living room that floods with the light shining through the blinds on a summers day. Little flat, you got to know us so well. You heard our arguments and our countless 'I love you's'. You go to witness endless amounts of cuddles.

Black dresses



Black is my most worn colour, and therefore it's fair to say that I have a few black dresses! Black tends to contrast well with my fair skin and goes with absolutely everything! I appreciate the simple design of this dress, it fits nicely and the length also adds elegance and that little bit of glamour. Black is brilliant because it is understated, it can be elegant, beautiful and sexy, black always looks great!

Karen Milen on Valentine's


It's nearly that time of year again, Valentines Day. We tend to celebrate love as a fluttery emotion with roses and chocolates (which are always lovely to receive!) but if we really push ourselves to go deeper, we realise love is an action, we choose to love. I think we all have a responsibility to try and understand each other, myself included, I am definitely not perfect.

Moonstone Automatic Hair Curler


I have never previously tried an automatic curler so I was very excited to try out the Moonstone automatic hair curler by Irresistible Me! I love curling my hair because it's always nice to have a little more body! So it was great to try out a new way of achieving a full and curly look. The automatic curler comes with a cleaning brush and a water bottle to add the water for the steaming option. The Moonstone curler comes with an american plug so depending on where you live a plug adapter may be necessary.

A positive 2017


My relationship with new years is very hit and miss, I think this is because I think too much. It's natural to wonder what the year ahead will bring, and also to consider what the year gone by has taught us. A lot has changed in 2016 and I can only hope that the year to come will be a good one with many blessings. It's important to look back and be thankful for all the good things from the year. We should always be thankful for our health, that we are here to experience another year with one another.
