Hello Easter Weekend

It's Easter Weekend! 

I've spent my Good Friday spring cleaning with mum, ticking off the To Do list and tying up loose ends so I can shut my laptop this evening and keep it closed until Monday!

Car cleaned; inside and out
Tyre air pressure checked
Next weeks video filmed
Easter eggs bought & ready to be hidden and hunted on Sunday!
Full english food purchased ready for a lazy morning.
Interviews answered (nothing big, just helping out friends!)

I'm so looking forward to this weekend! Henry and I are heading back to Brighton tomorrow to spend the day with our friends, James and Amy. I think the plan is shopping, good food and drinks! Easter Sunday I'll be cooking up a big breakfast for the four of us, then going home to spend the day with family. My brother and his girlfriend are coming back home and the whole families coming over. There'll be Easter egg hunts, delicious roasts and without a doubt lots of laughs. We haven't got anything planned for Easter Monday yet, so we shall see! 

What have you got planned this weekend?

Brighton Blog Meet!

On Saturday, I headed to The Globe for a blogger meet up! Hosted by the lovely Laura from Lola & Behold, it gave a bunch of bloggers the chance to meet and make friends, chat all afternoon and network with some lovely brands too.

I fell totally in love with these gorgeous homeware pieces from Home & Lifestyle store, Homage. Nestled in Seven Dials there's some absolutely beautiful and unique items for sale. The notebooks below are to die for and apparently there's matching wrapping paper, so I know where I'll be heading when I'm next in need!

I love a good snack whilst I'm editing, essay writing, procrastinating or just bored and these Snact goodies are perfect! Tackling food waste head on, they're made with the bits of fruit that are too ugly, too small, too big or just not good enough for your perfect supermarket fruit. This is dehydrated fruit is delicious, vegan, gluten free and 100% fruit!

Goody Bags

We were very generously given some goody bags before we left, crammed full of wonderful bits. You can see me delving into the goody bag in my new Weekly Vlog! A big thank you to the following brands for the goodies...

I had such a fantastic time at the #BtonBlogMeet, met the loveliest blogging girls - who I already can't wait to catch up with again!

Over-The-Knee Boots

If you want to feel like your legs go on for days, you need a paid of Over The Knee Boots in your life! The most practical boots these are not, I'll admit, but for dinner dates or drinks with the girls, these are perfect. These were a present, but you can snap them up for only £35 from Public Desire.

I went for boots with a slightly thicker heel, rather than a stiletto heel, so they were slightly more practical, I wouldn't fall over when I walk with Henry at lightning speed (his walking speed is practically a small jog for me....) and I just knew I'd be more comfortable and less wobbly with a chunkier heel.


Pairing with Black High Waisted Skinnies and an Oversized White Shirt, these boots instantly turn a casual outfit into something a little more chic and sophisticated.White shirt, Close Up

Sunday Strollin'

I wanted to share some photos from my perfect Sunday. Henry & I woke up, headed for brunch with friends, then took the bright sunshine and warm spring air as an opportunity to spend the rest of the day outside. I like to think Sunday's are for long walks, lots of food, time with friend and relaxing, but in the city - sometimes I find that hard. I just associate Sundays with the countryside and being at home, cities are so non-stop that sometimes there's no 'sunday' feeling, just the horrible one you get before bed.

But, yesterday was different. 

We walked all the way along the seafront, stopping in little shops and museums we'd previously taken for granted and never acknowledged. We sauntered through the laines snooping in every junk shop, antique shop and homeware store we could find. We sipped delicious coffees from The Flour Pot bakery (I need to go back there and try every cake). We sat on the warm stones, filtering through for little bright pieces of sea glass. I used to search for it with my Granny on every seaside holiday when I was little, I had a hawk eye for it and it turns out I still do! We walked home just feeling so happy, content and relaxed.

More Sundays like this one, please.
