In early 2017 we got a family labrador puppy called Ruby, and she was chosen by my younger brother Chris, from a farm. We had not had a puppy before and here are a couple of puppy care tips we found to be helpful for looking after Ruby 🕊🌸 she is a kind pup and hopefully the tips could help in case you have a labrador or puppy too, or are hoping to get a puppy soon, or in the future.

I bought a copy of a book called the Curated Closet by Anuschka Rees in 2017. I bought the book just after Kitty Cotten, a kind lifestyle blogger, noted it could be a helpful book for someone who is hoping to create a capsule wardrobe, or to carefully create a wardrobe with pieces you truly love and are helpful for your lifestyle. The Curated Closet book is a generous size with a beautiful soft pink cover, and has lovely and inspiring fashion photography throughout the book. I am part of the way through the book, and hoping to carefully follow the chapters and tips shared by the author Anuschka Rees, to help to build a dream wardrobe.

Here is a recipe for blueberry muffins from a muffin cook book of my Mum's we have at home. The blueberry muffins are one of my favourite things to bake and I often bake the muffins every couple of weeks. You could hopefully find the ingredients for the muffins in your garden and at your local shop and you could also add a different berry or fruit in case you don't have any blueberries at home, or if there is a different fruit you love to bake with 🕊💕
Here is a second song playlist of songs I love and have been listening to quite a lot recently. There are a couple of songs on the playlist by Izzy Bizu, an English singer and songwriter from London, England. Izzy Bizu is one of my favourite singers and artists and her songs are so lovely, natural and uplifting, with pretty lyrics. There are also a couple of songs by Carla Bruni and Brigitte Bardot, inspired by my friend Alanna (@mycelluloidscenes_) who recommended a couple of songs by French singers to listen to (thank you Alanna) 🕊🌸
Here are a couple of my favourite movies. I watched the movies quite a lot when I was studying at University and was feeling a bit worried before exams, or had a big assignment, as the movies are kind and can help you to feel assured. The movies include the Princess Diaries (2001), directed by Garry Marshall and starring Dame Julie Andrews and Anne Hathaway, Pretty Woman (1990), also directed by Garry Marshall and starring Richard Gere and Julia Roberts and Paris (2008), directed by Cédric Klapisch and starring Romain Duris, Juliette Binoche and Mélanie Laurent.

I ordered a rose quartz luminizer, a natural and organic soft pink highlighter, from KORA Organics a couple of days ago, and when I was placing the order, a free sample of the KORA Organics noni glow face oil was included in the order.
