I am a confessed lover off all things skincare; from diet and exercise to lotions and potions I'm fascinated by how our largest organ (our skin) is affected. I've always enjoyed the process of washing my face, especially after a day in London or when I've worn makeup, and after opening up my pores with warm water I feel it's important to keep my skincare simple, gentle, and nourishing.

Oils are a point of contention for a lot of people, often hailed as faultless holy grails and amongst others get a bad rap. For the sceptics out there, let me just start by saying: oils will not make your skin oilier (in fact, they balance your skin oils out by sending signals to your glands saying "there is enough oil... don't send any more!"). Now that's out of the way, we can talk about the good stuff.

Spring is approaching and we've finally got some warm(ish) weather breaking through in the UK – my hands may still be blue but the sun is making it's annual appearance. Not only am I on a sudden impulsive mission to clean every surface in sight, I'm starting to feel the signs of the declutter bug. This time of year always makes me want to refresh and revamp my space, not only for the aesthetics but to defog and recharge my mind, too.

I love to read. It does, however, take a seat on the back-burner when I've got my laptop and good wifi. It's a shame, but I feel this is true of a lot of us. So I am on a little mission to read more. I have recently been on a book binge and have filled my shelves with inspiring books that I cannot wait to plunge into. Having them on display, peering at me from the sidelines is a great reminder to pick them up and delve in.

Last week I began bullet journaling. For those of you, like me, who're organisation, stationery, and goal-setting obsessed you've probably got a bullet journal of your own. For those of you still in the dark, a bullet journal is a system designed to be flexible and adaptable to you.

Every day starts with open eyes and a fresh slate. But then, if we're not careful, life can quickly descend into something a little more chaotic and before we know it our day has run off with menial tasks and monotonous to-do lists. There always seems to be things to be 'getting on with', but entwined with the chaos are unseen moments of potential we can grab and take as our own. Even if that's just a moment to breathe and reconnect. So here's my list of some things to do every day to be happier, healthier, and brighter.
