Hello! Thanks for stopping by. I’m Elaine, and as my family and friends will testify I approach most things in life with zest! As well as practising as an integrative care practitioner which includes homeopathy, I also managed our family’s dairy farm. In the last few years I have brought to life the eco, holistic, holiday, retreat Dundream, which most people fall in love with too. Having grown up in the south west coast of Scotland, this is a region very close to my heart and I wanted to share this beautiful area with others, and Dundream has allowed me to do just that. Loves Life is a means of sharing my loves and interest, which I hope you’ll enjoy and it may even persuade you to try some of one my own passions, whether this exploring the great outdoors, yoga, photography or cooking simple wholesome food. Whatever catches your eye; hopefully this space will inspire you to love life and live each day as fully as possible, trying new things and challenging yourself to new heights. What are my first loves? 
1. Without a doubt my family
 2. The sea; nothing beats an early (and refreshing) dip in the Irish Sea!
 3. Relaxing, by taking to my bike to explore unspoiled Dumfries & Galloway on two wheels

I love nothing more than filling our home with colour and happiness. By getting creative you can also have lots of fun and gain lots of…

Brighten your spirits!

Fashion for me is not about following the latest trend but wearing colours and styles that brighten ones spirits revealing more about the individual. I love creative design whether new, in my wardrobe or found in a vintage, nearly new or charity shop.  The colours and styles that I choose to wear reflect the mode I am in at the time. I…
