I have stumbled across a brand of interior perfumes I love... @aulilondon and wanted to give them a shout out. Their range includes candles, interior perfume & ceramico and diffusers and come packaged in the most beautiful darkest of blue glass containers and white packaging.

All of their scents tell a story, exploring oddities of places and people and come from chance encounters, journeys, experiences, observations and memories.
My absolute favourite is Per Alfeo. Before reading about its notes and inspiration, I was instantly transported back to one of my all time favourite holidays in Tuscany.
Since reading about its creation it seems it was dedicated to a chance encounter with an Italian shoemaker, a connoisseur of leather living in an Italian town.

Notes:-
Top – Mimosa, Incense, Lemon, Neroli

Middle – Rose absolute, Geranium, Jasmine absolute, Immortelle

Base – Labdanum, Cabrueva, Birch, Tobacco, Cedarwood

Certainly a brand worth discovering, if like me you’re obsessed by beautiful scents in your home... #aulilondon #interiorperfume

At last a day off with my kiddo... Happy Friday to you all x

TAUPE [ad gifted] I was recently approached by @squareflower to trial their GOTs certified organic cotton bedding.

Having read about their brand and learning more about its differences I was really interested to try.

100% of Square Flower’s cotton comes from Chetna, an inspiring organic farming collective in India that works with farmers to promote food security, crop diversification, natural composting methods and alternatives to pesticides and other harmful chemicals.
Verdict - the 400 thread count is super soft and silky and a great price point for it’s quality... would I repeat buy - absolutely. Shown here in white & taupe grey .

Tonight’s reading & pampering sorted... Thank you @new_mags for sending me the new @arkjournal - a new scandinavian journal of interiors, design, architecture and art [gifted]. Adding to my @j.hannah nail polish obsession/collection. Love this colour ‘marzipan’ the perfect solid nude. I buy mine from @lagentlondon. Miso is the next colour on my wishlist...

Thank you so much for all my birthday love yesterday.... I had a great day followed by a less exciting one today unfortunately but planning to fully milk it and celebrate into the weekend.

Now thinking I need a collection of brass candleholders!...

[ad] Anyone who knows me knows I’m generally always late.

Stats confirm that of those who use the snooze function, the average person presses snooze twice before getting up.
I’m that person who hits it repeatedly until i’m late and then i’m stressed rushing to get ready to be where I need to be.

Recently however I have tried to adopt the ‘refuse to snooze’ approach. Due to getting a better nights sleep I have been getting up an hour earlier than needed to fit in walking 10k steps.
It puts me in a better mood, I feel less rushed and that I can tackle my day with a clearer head.

Are you a snooze button pusher?
