It’s that time of the week again, the start of a beautiful weekend. Here are a few excellent things I’d like to share to inspire your weekend.
1. Wellbeing: At number 16 on my ‘100 things to do in 2012’ is to make more lists, lists help me to plan and stay focused. Take 10 minutes this afternoon to write down 10 things that you would most like to achieve, no matter how small or far-fetched they may seem at this moment. List 10 things you’d love to achieve and then select one and work out a way to achieve that goal. It may be that you want to go on holiday or be your own boss, anything is achievable but first you need to determine your goal. Going back to my number 5. ‘Tips to stay inspired’ share in your passion, share your goal and surely you will attract support, encouragement, inspiration and help along the way.
2. Read: I spend many an hour lusting after vintage books on Etsy. I stumbled across these beautiful vintage children’s books with amazing front covers and illustrations inside. There is a whole collection of classics from Alice in Wonderland to Little Women. All yours for only $34, there’s some real treasures on Etsy especially if you’re into good-looking vintage books.
3. Food: As I’m always striving to become more domesticated I’ve been reading a lot of Food blogs for inspiration recently. My current favourite is Food Coma with an easy to follow mix of the sweet, savoury and imaginative recipes, great photography and humble approach. Take a browse through the gorgeous Emma’s recipes, you won’t be disappointed. Flex your culinary muscle this weekend, let me know how you get on..
4. Music: I’d love to share with you my current favourite podcast which I download from i-tunes onto my i-phone for free. Blues Unlimited is hosted by Sleepy Boy Hawkins. Covering an array of Blues music, each episode Sleepy Boy Hawkins gives you a little insight behind each song which is always highly informative, I love it as you’re also getting a back history behind some of the Worlds best blues music. Sleepy Boy Hawkins speaking voice is pretty great too.
5. Style: Pockets & the importance of being comfortable. I’m a firm believer that if a person feels comfortable they naturally ooze style and confidence. I’m also a firm believer that the devil is in the detail! It’s the little things that make a huge difference to whether or not we feel comfortable, whether it’s having our seat adjusted correctly or an annoying label in the back of your blouse. The smallest things make a big difference to our day-to-day comfort, which leads me on to the importance of a well positioned pocket! Pockets should be practical and comfortable. There is (in my opinion) nothing more satisfying than a skirt or dress with pockets in the side seam or a pair of jeans or jacket with a pocket deep enough to fit your whole hand in. If your out shopping for clothes this weekend consider the pockets, how do you look with your hands in them? are they deep enough? and most importantly, do you feel comfortable?
Have a fabulous weekend lovelies,
