5 Reasons I Love Linen

5 Reasons I Love Linen

Sooo, it's no secret at this point.  Yes, even my grandparents have noticed my new-found love for natural fibres.  And my favourite, LINEN!  Oh my word, I just love it.  I can't stop wearing it, can't stop looking at it with all the heart eyes and I definitely can't stop talking about (sorry friends and fam).  You see, I don't just come across things and decide THIS for me.  I slowly consider, I research it, I save photos and create mood boards to see if it fits my life (again, my poor family) and then I finally take the plunge and try it out.  So when it gets here and lives up to, actually exceeds, my expectations I am gushing fountain of success filled enthusiasm and facts.So here we go!!  5 reasons I LOVE linen.

Insoiration is EVERYWHERE!! Even though I am technically on vacation, I can barely put my camera down! This place with its beautiful blue waters and lush green jungles just speaks to my soul!

And there is always something new to discover. We have been travelling as a family to Maui since Audrey was 9 months old! Nora made her first trip at only 2 months old!

I don't know about you, but something about the ocean fills me with both awe and delight (and a wee bit of fear lol). We have spent many days exploring this gorgeous spot where turquoise waves gently lap against pale sand.

We only ever left for fish tacos at the Paia Fish Market, where we ran into the one and only Owen Wilson!

I remember flipping through Nation Geographic as a girl and coming across the Hawaiian Islands. I had never seen anything that looked so much like paradise before and just knew I had to visit!

Thankfully this paradise has lived up to everysingle expectation. We have swam with sea turtles, paddle boarded among humpback whales and canoed alongside a tiger shark!

Honest Review | Nisolo Heeled Chelsea

Honest Review | Nisolo Heeled Chelsea

 Well the snow has made a return, so it seemed like the perfect time to give you an honest review of these gorgeous boots which have proven to be season-less.So I am not going to lie, I got off to a bad start with Nisolo.  I purchased a pair of smoking shoes (flat, loafer type) and even though they were absolutely gorgeous, there was a bit of damage on them from one of the shoe clamps and sadly I had to be send them back at my expense.
