If you happen to be new around here, you may not have guessed it but I am a stroke survivor. Today’s blog post title I credit to Jill Bolte Taylor who chose to draw insight from her stroke in a remarkable way. I think it’s always important to stop and reflect on where your life has taken you because it often gives you a deeper appreciation of life itself. Five years ago, on 21 May 2014, I had a stroke while at work and it was a day that changed my life forever. If you’d like to learn a little bit more about what actually happened and about my recovery process, you can read this blog post and watch this video where I discuss that in more detail. Today, however, I thought I’d reflect on the journey over the past 5 years, what I have learnt from my experience and how it has impacted my everyday life.
We’re now 9 months away from our wedding day and things are starting to take shape so I thought it was high time I put together Wedding Planning Update II! If you missed my first Wedding Planning Update, you can catch up on that here. I added a poll on my Instagram Stories to see if you wanted an update and I had an overwhelming response. I’m so glad you’re as excited about this as I am!
I thought I’d share the luxury bath & body range that I’ve fallen in love with this month. The range is called Avon Encanto Fascinating and consists of a body lotion, body & bath oil, shower gel, body spray and hand cream. The whole range is infused with perfume oils and enchanting notes of florals, rare jade vine flower and silky cashmere. The fragrance of this range immediately relaxes me and I absolutely love the way it does this purely from the aroma that lingers on my skin.
