I thought I’d do a little catch up post as a lot of things have been happening around here! I started a new full time job last week and, as usual, when my routine changes I need to find a new blogging rhythm. So here’s just a quick catch-up post in the meantime while I get myself into the habit of using my weekends to organise blog posts. Find me on Instagram here. 
1/ A few weeks ago I spent a very hungover Sunday in bed and started to watch Orange is the New Black after reading the book while I was travelling. I’m not really a series watcher as I can’t usually find the time but I completely binged the whole first two series in about a month. It’s just so good! Have you seen it?
2/ After a farmers’ market a few weeks ago we popped in for coffee at the most beautiful shop/cafe, Weylandts. There is a huge showroom/shop at the back with gorgeous gorgeous styling and furniture, with a little restaurant at the front which serves coffees on wooden boards, guys. Not sure what to make of that but it was lovely. 
3/ Chuckle Park is the cutest little bar, decorated with string fairy lights and nestled into an alleyway in the heart of the city. I love stumbling across places like this, and it made the perfect pre-dinner vino spot.

4/ My amazing mother sent me an Easter package in the post from the UK! She knows me well and sent me a load of chocolate, Intimissimi undies, Anthro lipstick and a load of other goodies. Totally spoilt. 

5/ I bought my first swimming costume in about 10 years (as in, not a bikini) and did some lengths. Swimming is the most therapeutic thing! Though I do find it hard to motivate myself to get into that cold water, anyone else?
6/ I’ve been wanting to try Pressed Juices for ages and I treated myself after work last week. I went for Green 6 (after eating a truck-load of chocolate the previous weekend) and I wasn’t disappointed. It was pricey but you get a decent amount and I had half for breakfast the next day. Next time I want to try one of their healthy but sweet-sounding mylks… It’s dangerous that it’s so close to my office!
How was your weekend? And have you got any plans for this week? X

    That pool looks amaaaazing! Excellent parcel too – my mum is pretty great at sending sweets to me at work when I need them most, she must have a sixth sense! 🙂
