  • After a ridiculously hectic October for @albusandflora , which included a great trip to the Telegraph Ski & Snowboard Show, we are now dreaming of the mountains.  The countdown until our return to our winter home in the Alps has started and I couldn't help but fall in love with the beauty of this shot! Nothing like new snow on the mountain to get the heart pounding! :-)⠀

  • Sorry for the lack of posts recently....the challenges of a beauty entrepreneur, trying to do everything alone means there are never enough hours in the day or days in the month to get everything done!  I am however, delighted to announce that Albus & Flora will be at the Ski & Snowboard Show, London 26-29th Oct....watch out in the next few days for opportunities to win free tickets to the show :-)⠀

  • On my #wellnessjourney with the wonderful @soulethos this week in Ibiza. Time to retreat, refresh and redefine. 
Our steps to our yoga studio are becoming so much part of this special journey, and I am forever grateful for the joy and teachings each day brings. 🙏🏻💕🌿 Your ❤️ knows the way, run in that direction - Rumi

  • After a rather eventful weekend that involved my laptop getting stolen, with precious photos and business records now lost forever and a lovely afternoon tea with my parents at Sandersons Boutique Store (our new stockists)....I am reminded of the importance of NOW. ⠀
⠀
So to everyone that might (like me) struggle sometimes with this, lets enjoy the moments with friends and family fully, and lets deal with the challenges and then move on - freeing ourselves from worrying about yesterday or tomorrow!⠀ ⠀
