Inspire your Senses




I got sent a NEOM Real Luxury Organic Room mist in Lavender, Jasmine & Brazilian Rosewood. It had been sitting on my desk for a while and I just used it for the first time during a moment of high blood pressure and stress. Man, it SMELT so good and I found it very soothing. Sometimes I think when you are stressed out and cannot see the woods for the trees you have to find a way to stop and do something nice for yourself. Lavender has always calmed me right down, but I didn’t think, to be honest, that this would be quite so effective or delicious. Room sprays and candles are often too overpowering for me and tend to make me feel a bit sick.I am thinking perhaps now that it might be all the fake smells and chemicals that have done this, because walking through a rose garden is of course a completely different matter. All of NEOM‘s organic products are free of: Petrochemicals, Parabens, Phthalates, SLS, PEGs, or Silicone.


NEOM is regularly featured in the UK editions of Vogue, Elle, Glamour, Style and Marie Claire and is a big hit with celebrities. O&N Collective (a sustainable beauty apothecary) exclusively sell their range of candles and room sprays in North America. I highly recommend this company and their other brands of sustainable products too.





Dark Shadows is a Tim Burton movie staring Johnny Depp out on the 11th May that I think would be fun to SEE. Love Burton… Also has Helena Bonham Carter, Michelle Pfeiffer, Johnny Lee Miller and Eva Green.







A TOUCH of Neon. OK- this one is cheating but I can’t get enough neon lately and Im seeing it everywhere, so here are a few of my favourites.

Cambridge Fluoro BagNeon pendant light, Put The Love In The Coconut Pillow Case.





I am going to Bake today! I have been promising myself to actually do it. These delicious Raspberry Oatbars have been calling to me, since I saw this pic on Janis’ blog Pinecone Camp.

Im gonna do it I tell ya, probably won’t look as good as this but hopefully they will TASTE nearly as good :)





I wish we could go LISTEN to the wonderful Bon Iver when they play in Vancouver, but alas we cannot… If you get a chance try and go see, these guys are pretty clever: Justin Vernon and Sean Carey (drums, vocals, piano), Michael Noyce (vocals, baritone guitar, guitar) and Matthew McCaughan (bass, drums, vocals)…
