I am a huge Homeland fan. It is an adrenalin pumping series, and it keeps me at the edge of my seat all through, almost like 24. It is currently one of my favourite series. I have binged watched all the seasons on Netflix as soon as I discovered it. So I am happy to see season 6 is out. I can’t wait to watch that.

This Harper’s Bazaar cover is beautiful as usual. Claire Danes looks amazing on it. I love her hair and makeup (the red lippie always wins), and the outfit looks good too. I would love to read this issue. The interview sounds like a fab read.

Here are some excerpts from Danes’ interview with Harper’s Bazaar:

 

On Donald Trump and BREXIT

“I do think that England and America are so closely affiliated that it’s not terribly surprising there’s this parallel phenomenon occurring between our two countries,” Danes says. “The Brexit and Trump phenomena are informed by similar forces and social and economic movements. I think it’s been really stressful; it’s been really scary. I think we’re in a fever state and we’re all really anxious about how we’ve gotten here and why we’ve gotten here.”

Yes it is a very stressful time for many.

On her Carrie Mathison Character

“You know, I don’t think of her as female,” says Danes. “I’m playing a person. I’m playing a person. She’s just not defined at all by her sex. She is defined by her ideals, by her patriotism, by her commitment to righting wrongs, by her relationship to her mental condition [but] it’s just really beyond the more conventional stereotypes about what it is to be a woman in this world.”

I love Carrie Mathison! She is not a typical heroine, and that is what I love most about her.

What do you think of these covers? Are you a fan of Homeland?

Getting Cosy This Winter

We spend most of the times indoors during winter. As a ‘work from home mum’, I am always so busy during the day, I hardly have time to do anything else, and I tend not to go out as much this season, because of the horrid winter weather conditions. So I need my home to look good, and smell amazing for me to get comfy. Getting cosy this winter, means me relaxing and having a period of uncontrolled indulgence in what things I love.

Debenhams Flowers

I love fresh flowers a lot, it is one of those things I do not mind spending a small fortune. I just love the smell flowers and the way it changes the whole mood of a room. I fell in love with Debenhams Flowers after receiving a bouquet of Autumn Flowers some months ago, and I am still in love. It is quite important for me to have fresh flowers in my home every time, but most especially during the cold season, and Debenhams Flowers is my favourite flower shop. I am sure of finding a great collection of fresh, beautiful flowers, that do last over 7 days, and suit my taste perfectly at Debenhams Flowers, and this Designer Spirit bouquet is one of them.

Spirit Debenhams Bonquet

This bouquet is all about delicate silver asparagus fern with scented oriental lilies and elegant avalanche roses accompanied by fresh green berries and blooms. I love the scent and the look. It is perfect for every home or office this winter. You can grab yours and get a 25% off quoting DFBLOG25 at checkout.

Linea Diffusers
If you remember I gave a way this set of 3 Linea Mini Diffusers courtsey of House of Fraser some months ago. These mini diffusers also help get me cosy, along with my socks, blankets and Netflix of course. I have binged watch Nachos, all Homeland seasons, I am currently watching some independent American movies at the moment, and I am about to watch the movie – Addicted,ย happy days.
Back to the mini diffusers, they come in Fig Noir, Citrus Verbena and Oud fragrances, and they all leave my home smelling amazing. I love all three of them.
ย Baylis & Harding Candles
Sweet smelling candles also help me relax during winter. Candles help create a calm ambience, and that only allows me enjoy my time indoors. This Baylis & Harding Limited Edition set of 3 candles is a perfect example. I got this from my George Secret Santa, courtesy of George Asda, and I am so loving it. I have all three of them burning as I type.
How do you relax indoors during winter? Speak your heart, don’t bite your tongue.
