Fleurish with Fleur: cheers to new beginnings


Taking the time to write for myself


*ALERT! This letter is cheesy. If you are lactose-intolerant I recommend a lactase enzyme*

Flourish: defined by Meriamm-Webster as growing luxuriantly and to achieve success. Everyone wants to thrive in life.

This website has always been used as my online portfolio and although this will still be a place of showcasing my work, it’s time for me to showcase and write about the things I love. From sharing people’s stories to writing about industries I’m passionate about.

Part of me was hesitant make this change because I was afraid people wouldn’t be interested or would disagree. However, I know that almost every person has had this insecurity at the start of their new ‘move’. At the end of the day, a journalist’s purpose is to write stories – even on topics they’re not entirely familiar with. I may not be an expert in the field, but I promise that I will put all my journalism skills to use. The only way to improve my skills is to write.

You’ll see and read a lot of stories that relate to beauty and lifestyle, such as skincare, haircare, and local business stories (that obvi relate to each other).  Even future travel stories will relate beauty and lifestyle. Don’t worry, it’ll be worth it!

This is an exciting new path to follow. I’m excited to share these stories with you.

With love,

    Thanks for publishing such informative article, Fleur. In Europe we adore the sun and using SPF is not a very common thing. Also, I remember that in the early days, SPF didn’t go higher than 30 and we only used it while on the beach. And when someone got a sun burn, we just laughed and put slices of cucumber on it to cool it down. You are absolutely right, we need to include SPF in our daily skin routine. Now one more challenge to go: introduce this to my husband.

      Thank you for sharing this little story! If we can normalize the use of sunscreen a lot of skin cancer could be prevented! Luckily the skincare companies are getting more innovative with their formulas to make sunscreen attractive for everyone of all skin colors/conditions/types!

    Hello! I want to ask, after using the innisfree super volcanic mask, you rinse it off and then do you apply your skincare after that? or do you just leave your bare face after rinsing the clay mask off?
