How are you finding the spring evenings and the longer days? I finally feel as if I’m coming out of hibernation, but still very much in need of some down time, extra time in bed on a Sunday morning fuelled by tea and LOTS of breakfast food.
Last Sunday morning I was recovering from a very muddy Rough Runner (hence the lack of post), but this weekend I’m grateful that there is no crazy obstacle course ahead of me, no mud to wade through and no ice cold water to fall in. Although, our Sunday brunch at Cote Brasserie certainly made up for it (their French toast comes highly recommended). This weekend however, I’ll be catching up on some much needed blog reading and tea drinking.
What about you? What are your plans for the weekend?
The amazing and super talented, Zanita (if you’ve ever watched Fashion Bloggers on E! then you’ll know who I’m talking about) has written a post on cleaning your make-up brushes. And, as banal as it might seem, a clean make-up brush is essential if you want healthy skin (and brushes). Never underestimate the power of a good, clean make-up brush!
As sad as it sounds, my bed is my happy place. On my first date, with my now husband, he asked me where was my favourite place to be in the world, the place that made me happiest, and I said ‘Tucked up in bed’. It’s still true now. It’s the place I feel calmest, safest and it’s where I do most of my good (and bad) thinking. I love this post on ‘How to turn your bedroom into your happy place’ by Advice from a twenty something. Pillows, blankets and candles are certainly essentials.
I love the idea of a spring reading spot … and I can’t wait to get stuck into some of the books on this list by Lobster and Swan.
A fab post by the beautiful and extremely articulate, Monica of The Elgin Avenue, has definitely helped me this week. An open, honest and true account of dealing with stressful thought patterns – and jam packed with good advice and top tips. Certainly one to read, digest and put into action.
And finally, a mouth-watering post by Media Marmalade on gluten free comfort food. Just look at those pictures! I can’t wait to give this recipe a try.
I hope you all have a great weekend, whatever you’re doing.
