With Halloween on the rise, we’re guessing that the pumpkin spice latte will be making a return. Be prepared to post this all-time Starbucks favourite and watch the likes flood in! A good shot of a cup of coffee is sure to get the likes.

 

An autumn nature post

Autumn is one of the most beautiful seasons to photograph and everyone loves a good leaf post. Especially with the beautiful bold browns and reds. You can post your nature photos individually or as a pile to add some colour to your Instagram account.

 

Snap a selfie

I love uploading selfies every now and again. I enjoy taking them and I think it is great  to take a few selfies wearing autumn hats, gloves and scarves! Have a look at designer womenswear brand Ralph Lauren’s online style guide for more ideas on the pieces and accessories you should be wearing and sharing for autumn 2017.

 

A bright night sky

Make the most of upcoming seasonal events. You could attend a firework display on the 5th of November! You could also get some great Halloween decoration shots! Capture all of the action on your phone and upload to your feed.

 

Picture pumpkin

Pumpkins make great shots! You can either carve them or stack them up to create a beautiful post. So make the most of the season, and get those pumpkin photos uploaded on Instagram.

 

Wear then share

When it comes to fashion, Instagram is the place to be. I get a lot of daily fashion inspiration on Instagram, and I enjoy sharing my outfit posts too.  This autumn, why not share some outfit posts? Just make sure you pick the picture perfect outfit!

 

A touch of frost

Instagram is a great platform to show off your photography skills. Capturing the perfect shot of glistening, pretty frost will put your skills to the test, but the end result is well worth the effort!

 

The top trick

We all know cute animals can guilt trip people into liking a post. From pups in piles of leaves to robins on fences, who can scroll past those little faces? So if you have a pet, get those shots taken!

 

Muddy wellies

Autumn and rain go hand in hand, so get your wellies out and make the most of the muddy puddles. Remember to get your cameras ready to get some puddles shots!

 

Extravagant hot chocolates

Posting a picture of hot chocolate in summer might be a little weird, but with the cold weather coming in, you have the perfect opportunity for snapping that shot. Pile them high with cream and marshmallows for an envy-inducing autumn drink.

Why spa treatments are good for you

If I had an unlimited budget, I would go for a spa treatment every weekend. The feeling I get after a good massage and facial is so amazing. A good spa treatment relaxes me, and gets me ready for whatever lies ahead. I don’t have as many spa treatments as I would want to but I try to book a treatment once a month most times.

I am always on the lookout for spas with deals and offers. I recently came across The Moroccan Spa marocMaroc at Urban Retreat, and I like the sound of the treatments offered. I will be exploring them further.

There are so many health and beauty benefits of spa treatments. So if you are thinking of treating yourself to a lovely spa treatment this autumn/winter, here are some reasons why you should go for it.

 

A good massage helps with circulation and decrease inflammation

A good massage has the power to calm you down and keep you relaxed, free from aches and pains. A good massage also improves blood flow throughout the body and general cardiovascular health. A good massage also helps boast a healthier immune system.

 

It helps the heart

The essential oils used in spa treatments does more than soothing and relaxing. Research has proven that the effects of a brief exposure to essential oils can also benefit the heart. It was also found to reduce blood pressure and the heart rate. However, research has also shown that the downside is after an hour of exposure to essential oils, people’s hearts begin to rebel and climb up again. So best to stick to an hour-long massage with lavender oil.

 

Soothes the aches and pains

Most of us are aware of this benefit, and this is one of the main reasons why I have regular spa treatments. A good massage soothes all my aches and a pains. As a busy working mum of 2, I am usually complaining of a back pain by the end of a crazy week. So having a massage session booked after a crazy week is usually the best thing ever!

Spa treatments are a bit of pampering

Sometimes in the middle of life’s hustle and bustle, we just need to sit back and let someone else do the pampering. That is also the main reason why I enjoy staying over at hotels and eating out. I am forever caring for and meeting the needs of others, so to be on the receiving end is amazing for my mental health.

Self-care is essential, and  we should take it more seriously. Spa treatments are a good way to get a bit of pampering. It is a great way of getting taken care of that is psychologically and culturally acceptable, and we can carry that feeling of being cared for with us for a period of time. Which would help us better with stress in the long run.

 

When last did you have a spa treatment? I know I am badly in need of 1.

What Makes a House a Home

We have been living in our home for almost 5 years now, and we are forever redecorating. This won’t be our forever home. I can clearly see us outgrowing this house in a few years, but it works perfectly for now. This house has now become our home, and I am so in love with it. So what makes a house a home? Here are the 5 things that I believe make a house a home.

The People

The people you share you house with make it a home. The kids, the pets, and the grown up playing house all have a role in making a house feel more than just where you lay your head. The housemates make a house a home.

The Memories

If you know me well enough, you would know how I dislike moving from house to house. I get really attached with anywhere I stay because I am forever making memories. So I avoid moving as much as I can. However, if I do have to move, I make sure to employ the professionals so it is done quickly. I will look out for fantastic estate agents like Featherstone Leigh, home movers, cleaners and all.

My sister recently moved into a very nice house in London some weeks ago, and I like how she went about it. She got professional movers to move all the furniture and get them all set up in the new house. Her entire move went as planned with no issues at all. That is how I would want my house move to look like when we do move.

 

The Noise

My house is super noisy thanks to my very loud toddlers. I am so used to the noise, that it still feels so weird at night when they are fast asleep, and the house goes dead quiet. Or during the day, when they are in preschool and I have some peace and quiet. Having said that, I won’t trade the noise for anything. I feel lost without the chatter and the noise.

 

The Smell

My home has a distinct smell. I am forever burning candles, and I have quite a few diffusers scattered around the house. I like my home smelling very nice. The smell reminds me when I wake, that this is my home.

 

Good Food

What makes a house a home? Good food. My daughter knows what meal we are having before she sees it. She has a strong sense of smell, and is usually spot on when she guesses her meals. The smell of good food makes a house a home. There is nothing better than coming home to the smell of something baking in the oven. For many of us, a house isn’t a home until it is cooked in.
