Embracing Change*

Oh hey Autumn, you're really here now aren't ya? It's currently just gone half past four on the penultimate day of October, the sun has already set and I'm all curled up on the sofa, lamp on and my candle crackling away in the backgrounds.

Little Things*

If there is one thing that I love doing its people watching. Often when I find myself watching the people around me, I'm reminded of Hugh Grants monologue at the start of Love Actually where he rightly concedes that 'love actually is all around'.

Total Wellbean*

Hands up - who cannot get through the morning (let alone the day) without a good, strong coffee? I know I can't! Without coffee my emails make no sense, I'm unproductive and worst of all I'm a total grinch!

48 Hours in Loch Lomond


As much as we always try to head away somewhere new when we have the time, there a few places that we will continue to return to time and time again throughout our lives. Paul & I fell in love with Loch Lomond and the Western Highlands when we first visited back in 2007 and ten years later we decided to head back again.

Ain't Nothing But a Number

Age that is. I've never been bothered by my age, I've never feared growing up or getting older unlike many of my friends and I've always seen it as a positive as opposed to a negative. We can't be 19 forever you know...

The Best of Autumn*

I'm not the biggest fan of Autumn, but even I admit that I do like a good dose of the ol' Pumpkin Spice, crunchy leaves under foot and cosy afternoons snuggled up with a nice hot drink and a movie or two. The one thing I struggle with in Autumn is 'transitional' fashion and normally I end up getting it horribly wrong.

On The Go Skincare*

I'm pretty certain that my skin could be classed as 'sensitive' and as a result it is so important to treat my skin right whether I am at home or on the move. That's why I always carry a little army or skincare saviours in my gym bag and hand luggage, to keep my skin happy and healthy.

Be Happy

It recently dawned on me that I absolutely love 'happy' music - this may have dawned on me whilst listening to JT's Can't Stop This Feeling for the billionth time this year and no, I'm not sorry at all. But then it also dawned on me just how hard it can be to be happy in the world we live in today.

End of Year Goals

I don't want to jump on the old 'how the devil is it October already' bandwagon but I sort of am doing anyway because I cannot believe that it is now only about three months from my birthday again already. I mean there's a lot to do between now and then including Mr D's birthday, a holiday (or two) and of course, dare I say it, Christmas.

Why I'm Switching Off...

Being a blogger, having a good 'online presence' is something that I aspire to have. I think many of us do. However, sometimes striving to achieve this can have a massive effect on our IRL presence and that's why I'm determined to 'switch off' more.

At 19.51pm on October 1st 2014 I clicked ‘publish’ on my first ever post here on HarmonyBlaze, it was a relatively meaty post at 580 words and all about my favourite subject; me. Three years on and my little corner of the internet has changed so much but I still love just as much, if not more.

At Home Upper Body Routine

Over the past few months I have totally mixed up my fitness regime both inside and outside of the gym, going from heavy cardio based sessions to ones that are more strength focused. Many of the workouts I do now can just as easily be done at home as in the gym too, making them perfect for busier days!
