Thank you to the beautiful Bailey from Vanilla Blonde for my Me-Time tag – pretty envious of her me-time favourites.
Let’s be honest, who doesn’t love a bit of me-time?

What do you read or watch during me-time?
I love to read romantic or suspense novels – these are a few of my favourites: The Girl On The TrainWhat Alice ForgotThe Husbands Secret and Deep Blue Sea.

I love to watch my favourite Series: Elementary, Pretty Little Liars, Stalker, Mistresses, Revenge…

What do you wear during me-time?
Me-time requires extreme comfort but there is also something about looking too slouchy that makes me feel fat and frumpy. Although, I highly doubt I pull off the comfy look very well, but I try… Track pants or tights and a vest. And ALWAYS slippers.

What are your me-time beauty products?
I am a loyal Dermalogica user and my favourite me-time beauty products are Dermalogica everything: 

Current favourite nail polish?
I have never been a huge nail person and I used to bite my nails so now I stick to Gelish manicures every month. My favourite colours are their bright pink or coral, and cute fun with their nail art.

What do you eat/drink during me-time?
Tea and chocolate – you can’t beat it!

Current favourite candle?
I’ve never been a candle person but I’m starting to think that I should be – I am obsessed with the smell of lemongrass so hopefully I can find that scent?

Do you ever have outdoor me-time?
There is nothing better than a few hours of catching rays and Vitamin D in the sunshine – I love Summer me-time on the beach or by the pool.

Favourite online shop?
I have a few… 
Victoria’s Secret for gorgeous underwear and bikinis
Glee Projects for all my party planning essentials
Macaroon for gorgeous stationery
Country Road for my favourite clothing
Saint & Summer for the most gorgeous shoes.

Anything to add? what else do you do for me-time?
It must be noted that me-time with a toddler and a baby isn’t a regular occurrence but I make the time. I try my best to get away for a week day pamper spoil to have my nails or hair done. And I love an indulgent full body massage at a local spa. Even a few minutes out of my day to read a book or nap is heavenly bliss for this busy momma.


I now tag a few of my favourite ladies:
Ashley – It Is What You Make It
Katie – Keep Calm & Carry On
Ashley – Run With Me
Christina – Carolina Charm
Laura – Happily Ever Parker

Have a fabulous week!


  1. I'm not sure of you get a brand of candle/products in SA called Glasshouse, but there candles are AMAZING! They're a bit pricey but the large one last at least a year. The Coconut-Lime and Vanilla-Caramel are to die for 🙂
