Time to relax and Pied A Terre Giveaway

street art


With everything so fast paced in our lives at the moment it can be really hard to simple switch off but for our personal wellbeing we all need to disconnect every now and than. Some save up for a 2 week holiday away from it all, others like me just try and find moments of calm during each day, wether it be a peaceful cup of coffee, lighting a beautifully fragranced candle, enjoying the fresh sea air or just having an extra five minutes in bed, they all help to calm the mind.


harbour life

I have to say one of my favourite ways to relax is to spend time near water, I love the seaside, harbours and beaches and during my childhood we lived near the coast and I spent many a sunny day either surfing, walking the dogs along the beach or unsuccessfully fishing off the side of a jetty. For some reason I always feel free near the sea. What is your favourite way to relax? Having a cosy night in, treating yourself to a spa day or relaxing in the bath?

Well to help you on your way to a more relaxing day I have a lovely little giveaway to win some Pied A Terre goodies worth £45 from the lovely people at House of Fraser. The prize includes a set of 3 mini glass votive candles and a set of 3 mini reed diffusers. It's really easy to enter and the competition ends on the 30th August 2014
