Imagine if the ruins in Cork looked this good? I found this little paradise of wild creeping flowers and hibiscus trees in the middle of the city of Chania! Run down sites usually aren't very attractive, but this one Nature reclaimed and decorated all on her own

I had to stop to take a photo of these beautiful roses braving autumn  And as I was taking this photo, this dog called Ruffles ran past me. I only knew his name was Ruffles because his drunk owner kept calling him back to him, in a state of confusion

Autumn leaves are like fancy origami, paper thin, carefully folded by the cold & the wind

In a shop the other day I saw this lovely witch hazel toner and then I remembered that I had actually already made my own (pictured above)  Making your own all natural toiletries is really easy and surprisingly quick to do. All you need is a few trusty recipes, some raw ingredients (yes, they're expensive but last a long time) & a willingness to experiment  To inspire you ladies, some things I've made over the past few months are:
• Whipped cacao body butter
• Witchhazel & teatree toner
• Beeswax & olive oil lipbalm
• Grapefruit salt foot scrub
• Beetroot liquid blush
• Jojoba hair oil
• Cinnamon & cacao bronzer

I haven't owned a car for 2 years now, which is kind of surprising. We're lucky enough to live close enough to the city to be able to bike & walk to almost everything which is so cool (the buses are naturally slow so I don't bother with them). That said, winter is coming & I'm trying to mentally prepare myself for some cold & rainy commutes  Even so, I really prefer being outside. In a way you get to see more by not driving, I wouldn't have smelt and heard these pretty leaves if I was in a car this morning

The trees are in their autumn beauty,
The woodland paths are dry,
Under the October twilight the water
Mirrors a still sky;
Upon the brimming water among the stones
Are nine-and-fifty swans. - Yeats
Ok, this photo isn't that poetic, but it's October & here are some cygnets & a swan, a symbol of transformation (quite literally).

We find beauty not in the thing itself but in the patterns of shadows, the light and the darkness, that one thing against another creates… Were it not for shadows, there would be no beauty. - Tanizaki
