Deshabillé: What it means to be casually luxe

Let me share with you what I got for Christmas... these adorable sleep shorts from Deshabille

I am very grateful that my family has such good taste in brands because I never would have come across Deshabille otherwise. The brand collaborates with artists to design unique pieces inspired by whatever things the founder (Roslyn Gleave) falls in love with.

Each garment has delicate trimmings and details to give it that relaxed luxury feel. The colours are beautiful, the styles are elegant and if I had one criticism it would be that I would prefer the elastic on the waist to go right the way round with the ribbon just being decorative as it is more practical. But regardless I love these shorts and am keen to explore more of their products.

Initially inspired by sleepwear the brand now has some truly breathtaking items ranging from beachwear to knitwear and even homewares.

Here are my lust-have items:
Anywhere dress

The Erin Cardi Black

Melange Robe Silver Marle
How cosy do these look!!! I could seriously spend an entire Winter season wrapped up in one of these cardi's.

Take a look at their website and let me know what you think? Or maybe you have heard of Deshabille before?

Love and gratitude. Xx

Breathe and Reboot; Whenever You Choose

Another year and another chance to make your mark on this beautiful wide world and spread your inner beauty.

You already know who you really are so do not get weighed down worrying about New Year's resolutions and whether you are on track to maintaining them or not. The idea of a resolution is a bit ludicrous to me now because you do not have to wait a whole year to do something you want. You can start whenever you choose and if it doesn't work out then you can start again.

I heard something the other day on Hay House Radio and the teacher (I cannot remember her name) was talking about if you do one thing it can simply be to love yourself more and choose to spend this year focused on who you are and looking after yourself better. That can be done in many many ways from cooking more at home, to buying flowers for yourself, and meditating to look after your complete body, mind and soul.

Or it can be as easy as looking in the mirror and deciding to really love yourself this day (and then each day after that).

So go ahead beautiful people and simply:
