Sohn’s Lesson


I have just spent a week back home in London. Just been re imbibed with energy, culture, street vibe and openness in every way. While in London I discovered new British artist Sohn and haven't stopped listening to his new album Tremors since. In the vain of my beloved James Blake (who's 2013 album I will speak about soon) but with a higher Read on...

A short essay on photography and mental print

France Hossegor Photography Lake FrancePine Forest France I still cannot stop taking mini snapshots of everything I see in my head. I think, one day, my over stimulated-sometimes-childlike brain is going to simply protest and ask me to just STOP be quiet Fiona. Just let me take is EASY for a few minutes. But until then, I do not intend to slow my mental snapshot habit. When I am able Read on...

Tips for a gorgeously fraganced home

Certain smells are as evocative as a photograph, or even more so.

They take you back to a place or moment in time that you may have forgotten all about. After all, why is it that people trying to sell their houses are always told to bake a cake before potential buyers look round? It’s so that the prospective new owners instantly associate the house with a warm, homey feel they may well have felt in their childhood home, where Mum would often bake a cake to have after tea.

 

 So many aromas work together to make your house feel welcoming. In the kitchen, having a clean work surface paves the way for the fragrances of the tasty food you cook to waft their way throughout the space. Your lounge may be full of the fragrance of flowers, your bedroom the tantalising aroma of crispy clean sheets. Bathrooms can be made into the most enticing of spaces with the help of essential oils and scented bubble baths.

Perhaps you have been too busy rushing around after Christmas to pay much attention to how your house smells at the moment. I don’t mean that you’ve let it get dirty, rather that you haven’t had time to make it feel even lovelier with the addition of gorgeous-smelling things.

Going out – the Rules to dressing up Festive Style

Ok ladies, it's that time of year again.

COME ON, admit it, you love to dress up.

Even those of us who bah humbug the whole Christmas/New Year social scene have to admit that we like to get dressed up and look like a million (or more) Euros/Dollars. I live near the beach now and have a beautiful life here that's close to nature and things that I consider simple but essential to my whole existence. However, everyday I have fun getting dressed up, keeping that girly little spark in me going. As soon as I have an excuse (a party, a concert, opera... whatever!) I go ballistic trying to find something I am going to have fun wearing.

So because this is the season of parties and near liver failure, I thought I would put together some rules. For New Year this year I will be going to the Casino, having fun and sitting at the poker and blackjack tables and I am going to be dressing UP for it. Hope you find some interesting facts and please don't hesitate to let me know what you will be wearing this festive season!!! Read on...
