This year has been going so quickly! I feel like I have blinked and all of a sudden we are it is nearly Christmas!
I must admit, I feel like i have missed half of this month. Being away has been wonderful, but it has really thrown me off my game!
So, what has been keeping me going this month:
In the Kitchen:
Jet lag has been kicking my butt since we got back! I have been awake when I should be sleeping……and falling asleep at my desk in the middle of the day! Coffee has been my best friend! It has been keeping me going at a very basic functioning level….just!
A few weeks back, The Boy brought home this little jar of Illy coffee. It has been perfect to make my everyday espresso, as it is very finely ground. As if my magic it makes my coffee a little bit quicker than my other coffees, so it has helped me get out the door quickly in the morning.
In the Bathroom:
I would like it noted in all the calendars that I have a tan! Currently I am not completely transparent and I have a little bit of colour!
Unfortunately what comes with that is dry skin. To the rescue has come this amazing Rituals scrub. It is a very strong scrub with an oil base has been scenting my bathroom and buffing my skin back to life!
In the Bedroom:
After the storm which was our amazing wedding and perfect honeymoon, I am now trying to get our bedroom back to normal!
During this period I was looking for a bracelet I needed, and found some beautiful dainty necklaces that I had forgotten about.
In an effort to wear them more often, I picked up this beautifully minimal jewellery holder to encourage me to pick one up on my way to get dressed in the morning.
In The House of Lotz Retreat and Spa (aka In the Livingroom):
The sad thing about Sharpies is that the do not last forever! Every so often you have to restock….so maybe this is just me…..but what can I say, I love pens!
I have recently restocked my Sharpie collection and I could not be a happier stationery geek! Every single colour in one place…..I’m so happy!!!
In the Portable House of Lotz (aka in my handbag):
Over my travels I have loved and lost some beautiful carry-on bags. I love and use them until they fall apart! In an effort to find a new travel buddy, I went through my bags with a fine tooth comb!
This trip I road tested my “Louis training bag” from Zara! This bag is about 8 years old and has lasted so well! It is the perfect carry on size and I really had forgotten how much I love it!
So, that was November!!!
Is there anything that you loved this month that I need to try out before the end of the year?
I hope you all have the most beautiful weekend…..bring on December and the festive spirit!
Hugs and love xXx
