Balancing Work & Play | #1 - Importance of Recording Memories

Since I started working full-time, I've been rather slack with my blogging - something I'm really quite disheartened about. Each month I say, 'This month will be better, I'll get loads done!' ..and before I know it, the month is over. 
It is ridiculous to think that this year is almost finished already, and despite me feeling like I haven't done anything, I can look back and see that actually, I've been making pretty good use of my time off after all! 

I'm planning a little series of posts intended to help those of you who work a lot, and maybe feel a little guilty about not getting much done, or finding it hard to make time to do things which you enjoy.

Roses de Chloé

For me, it's rose season.  A little strange perhaps, but I find rose a little too heavy in the summer, but just perfect as the colder weather begins to set in. 

This particular perfume from Chloé has been sat on top of my drawers all summer. I've been spritzing it here and there, but only now does it feel right to use it. I am a HUGE fan of the original Chloé, it brings back so many memories (funnily enough, of a friend called Chloe..) We used to go into Debenhams when we were younger, and literally cover ourselves in it. It's such a sophisticated, timeless fragrance. 

This perfume offers a rosy twist on an old classic, and is a huge winner for me.  The lasting power I have found to be incredible, and there is no better use for this perfume than to douse a scarf in it, getting a subtle waft every so often. (Is that just me?!) 

If you know someone who loves rose fragrances - a great christmas present idea!
