A couple of weekends ago Adam and I went for lovely walk in Arundel and it was the perfect opportunity to pop into one of my favourite brunch spots. The Loft is situated right at the top of a shop called Sparks Yard which sells all sorts of quirky homeware and hosts a menu of breakfast, brunch and lunch items from pancakes to burgers.
Over the past few months I’ve been trying to pay much more attention to what I’m eating and putting in my body. Now, don’t get me wrong… I’m still all about treats but am trying to take a more ‘everything in moderation approach’ so that I can enjoy these even more.
As you may know, I love a subscription box so when I found out about Ethical Kitchen, I couldn’t pass up the chance for coffee, chocolate and snacks delivered to my door.
I’ve been a bit slow in writing the next set of these posts, but don’t worry they’re on the way! Today I want to talk a bit of a weird technique I use to help stop me faffing and make sure I get at least some of my goals achieved. I like to think I’m ambitious, which is great, but I’m also quite indecisive which means I end up with lots of different grand plans. Plans to open an online shop, plans to improve my blog, plans to start doing more crafts… I have lots of plans.
Today I’ve really been pondering how it’s the simple things that make us happy and for me this is optimised by the simple notion of breakfast in bed. There’s no greater feeling than waking up to a perfect up of tea and toast smothered in your favourite raspberry jam.
Love is in the air and wedding planning is on full go! I’m hoping to take you along with me every step of the way as there’s sure to be loads of DIY decorations and crafts to blog about. But for now, I wanted to share this book I made for Adam last year as all this lovey-dovey fun and creativity reminded me about it!
This months Papergang subscription box helps support a wonderful cause, the Bumblebee Conservation Trust. This was great as it meant the whole box was Bumblebee themed which I could definitely get on board with.
It’s been a crazy couple of months for me and with wedding planning started to get into full swing I thought it might be time to really start trying to look after my skin. I already have a great skincare routine I love, but I wanted to try a few of the things I’d been putting off and one of these was trying out a face mask for the first time. I know, I know, that’s crazy… but for some reason I had it in my head that using face masks would bring me out in spots. In all fairness this isn’t 100% untrue.
