Ah sensitive skin. That one skincare type we often shy away at or fear for as stereotypically, we think sensitive skin reacts to anything and everything. In some cases, yes and you may be sat there nodding but not all ‘non natural’ skincare brands and products are irritants for sensitive skin. Fellow skincare enthusiast Emma Hoareau wrote a really interesting piece on Sensitive Skin and spoke about how Essential Oils (often found in natural skincare) are what cause her skin to react whereas chemicals, do the opposite. Everyone’s skin is different and with this post, I hope to share a bit more on sensitive skin, what products to use and steps to include in your routine.
A Postcard from Croatia
Continuing on my Croatia Travel Series, having done island guides and a 48 hour in Dubrovnik post today I wanted to share some of my favourite photos from our trip in a visual postcard style post. For me, there isn't much that beats blue skies, turquoise waters, reading in the sun, snorkelling and exploring new places, so a six week adventure around Croatia was the perfect trip. There is many a story to tell from this trip and many happy memories filled with laughs, love, food and wine.

Covered in luscious green forest and surrounded by turquoise waters, Mljet is the most enticing of the Croatian islands, with 70 percent covered in pine forests, we found paradise. So tranquil and untouched it feels as though the island is yours. Head west and discover the beauty of the salt water lake National Park and make your way south for untouched coves.
