indulge in escape with Anne Fontaine’s ss22 new collection of lace blouses and dreamy resort wear

Not another soul in sight as far as the shoreline stretched north to south. Serenity. The only sounds to be heard – crashing waves and the same colony of seagulls that had been scavenging the stretch of beach the last few days.  I could have spent hours alone there, and so we did. The realization of escape. A place you must cross over by ferry to reach, and amongst the last havens on earth, or at least the east coast.  Joining with Anne Fontaine for another season, the solitary island was the perfect setting to introduce the SS22 collection –  showcasing looks of pure fantasy with nods to escapism.  Without further adieu, here’s a taste of Anne’s latest collection of masterful creations, inspired from the exploration of France’s Basque Country of Biarritz and the arresting landscapes.  The Anne Fontaine new collection Littered in soft brights, feminine lace and luxurious silhouettes, Anne Fontaine has really captured the essence of sophisticated resort, occasion, and everyday work wear in the perfect seasonal collection roll out.   My top selects for …

my skin feels like butter with this 10 ingredient wash – JUNOCO skincare review

Poreless, smooth, glowing skin – we all want it. But with life comes an inevitable dullness courtesy of time, that lingers with us and reminds us of lost youth.  A flooded beauty market promises the return of our youthful glow, but with so many products it can be a nightmare to navigate, and we’re often left disappointed with unkept promises. When JUNOCO reached out to offer a regiment of their skincare – I was skeptical. But, agreed to give them a try over a couple of weeks to see if their products could live up to their claims.  A couple of weeks later, I’m happy to share this JUNOCO skincare review, with some actually surprising results.  I discovered a hack that leaves my skin with the smoothest, buttery (almost velvety) texture. And it’s the reason I’ll be using JUNOCO again!

JUNOCO carefully selects just …

just breathe, then you can save the world

When is the last time you took a moment to just breathe? I don’t mean collapsing on the couch to binge watch Netflix in complete mental exhaustion. I mean really, just to breathe. No phone. No podcast. No subliminal mental agenda. No distractions.  Our society is sick. Over stimulated, over pressured. And instead of breeding a culture with the strength to heal it, we feed into it by caving into the pressure, falling before we can even begin to make a difference. The truth is, when we are not well as an individual – not only do we find ourselves constantly overwhelmed fighting between fits of over-productivity and total mental collapse… We can’t help others, because we can’t help ourselves. We live in a digital era, where a wealth of information is at our fingertips. We’ve researched every aspect of our lives from the best morning routine to how to how to fix our relationships. We also run to technology to fix our most personal issues in our lives. How can I fix my anxiety. Why …
