Look fabulous with Popilush!

Hello everyone! How is the weather where you live? Here in Malta, the temperature is rising, and most days feel like summer. In today's post, I want to introduce you to another shapewear brand I recently discovered. I love shapewear because you can count on it to smooth out lumps and give you a sleeker silhouette. While it may seem preposterous to wear shapewear under your favourite summer pieces, there are shapewear fabrics and styles specially designed to be lightweight and breathable. For this reason, shapewear is truly seasonless, allowing you to feel more confident in your clothes all year round.

Head-to-toe winter skincare tips

Hello everyone! I want to share a few head-to-toe winter skincare tips. Cold temperatures and low humidity levels result in dry air that draws moisture away from the skin. Harsh winter winds and dry indoor heat can exacerbate the problem. Skin conditions such as eczema or psoriasis may also flare up during the colder months.

Today, however, I want to focus on our beloved four-legged friends. Winter care tips for our dogs are fundamental to keeping them safe this season. Many dog owners mistakenly believe that because their pets have a coat of fur, they can tolerate the cold better than humans. This is not always the case. Like us, our pets are used to the warmth of indoor shelter, and cold weather can be as hard on them as it is on us.  If it’s too cold for you to stand outside without a coat, it’s probably too cold for your dog too, so pay attention to their behaviour while they're outdoors. If you notice your dog whining, shivering or appearing anxious, it’s time to bring them in. So how can we protect our dogs in wint
