L’Occitane Gift Guide: Holiday 2018

The holiday season is upon us again, although I’m still wrapping my head around the fact that time flew by so quickly. This year has been filled with so many amazing first experiences, from traveling to Spain and Finland to celebrating my nephew’s first birthday. Did I mention that I’m a first-time aunt?

Far From Perfect

It’s funny how social media is a resource and reference for what people deem to be true. Whatever we post or say is always assumed to be a reflection of our direct lives. Sure we like to brag, show-off and low-key ask for sympathy during our darkest hours (i.e. break up’s), however as humans we also like to assume and lie.
