ou may have noticed on social media that I had a shoot with Rituals
a few weeks ago. They asked me to share some of my favourite uses of their products and scents for Nest Magazine and I was happy to take part.
You see, for me, Rituals was the first brand that even made me come into contact with home scents. When I was a university student in Leuven, I’d spend some of my budget on their “under a fig tree” candle, and it always made my room feel like home. Plus, it felt like such a luxurious splurge that was at the same time well within reach of my student budget.
It’s the small, everyday things that help me structure my busy schedule.
Today I wanted to share some tips for balance if you’re a scatterbrain like me. As a freelancer, I have a very diverse schedule, which is fun but also difficult. One day I’m shooting photos on location, one day I’m stuck behind my desk. I’ve discovered that for me, it’s the small, everyday things that help me structure my busy schedule.
Not coincidentally, this is completely in line with Rituals’ core values. The brand is all about slowing down, taking a step back and enjoying the moment, whether it’s in your beauty or home routine. Finding comfort in everyday moments and making them more enjoyable.
I don’t always follow my own advice, like everything in life it’s been trial and error, but the things below help me to structure my days, so I thought they might help you too.
