It's Friday, but more importantly?! It's the SECOND DAY OF SPRINGG!!!!!
Yesterday I had all the doors and windows open in the house, the sun was shining and I didn't even have a jacket on and I'm hoping that's a sign of glorious weather to come!
But before I get ahead of myself,
let's take a look back at what we've been up to recently!
Recent Happiness: IT'S SPRIIIIIIIIIIIIIINNNNNNGGGGGGGGG! Clearly I'm excited because winter is no more. Now it's time for this girl to thrive after pretty much hibernating all winter :P
Actually... I sit here writing that and I just realised IT'S FREAKING RAINING outside?!?!?!? Is this some kind of sick joke?! GO AWAY RAIN!
Recently Missing: Jesse! He's been working interstate all week but will hopefully be back tonight and I can. not. wait. !!!
Recently Watching: Luther. Kristy and Jesse the binge watchers strike again. After a couple of failed shows (The first season of The Killing just didn't do anything for me and whilst Jesse liked Suits I wasn't so convinced) we started watching Luther and we are totally HOOKED!
Recent Must Haves: My foam roller, resistance bands, R8 and Pain Strike Oil. My thigh muscles pretty much felt like they were full of broken glass on Monday after THREE MINUTES OF SQUATS during the "challenge song" of our Zumba class.
I don't call that challenging, I call that torture.
Needless to say, the first half of the week was rest day after rest day as I let my muscles recover :P
Recent Realisation: I turned a country boy into a city slicker who has more style than me. Umm.... yeah. Just look at Jesse's new watch. Can you say wrist candy?
It's the Williamsburg Watch from Wanderlust Watches' New York Collection and I kind of wish I didn't have teeny tiny baby arms so I could rock their watches too.
Does anyone else have ridiculously small wrists?! I feel like it must be a genetic thing as my Mum has the same problem, however, mine are even smaller than her. 9/10 times a watches face is pretty much the size of my ridiculously small wrists.
How do you increase fat on your wrists?! Can you reverse liposuction them? Because fat never seems to want to stick there :P
Recent Excitement: STRANGER THINGS SEASON TWO! I was so excited when I saw this that I screenshot it and sent it to Jesse right away! :P
Recently Baking: The Best Vegan Brownies Recipe. SO ridiculously good. Especially with chocolate chunks instead of chocolate chips. Because the chocolate ratio has to be high when it comes to brownies, friends.
Recent Embarrassment: Apparently I like to embarrass myself by taking really strange and awkward selfies on my Instagram stories. Actually, who am I kidding... girl has no shame :P
Oh and because apparently you guys really want to go for the chic face mask look, here is the link to the charcoal face mask :P Next on my list to try is this Cappuccino Cocoa Mud Mask.
Oh and if you're wondering why I had glasses on whilst wearing a face mask, the answer is; I was reading... duh! The face mask had dried and I was reading on my Kobo whilst soaking my feet in gross looking Chinese herbs from my acupuncturist... oh and I had bone broth too. Hello crunchy granola hippie girl, what's up!
Recent Posts: Two delicious recipes on the blog this week which show how I like to live.... with treats in one hand and veggies in the other :P
This Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Bites Recipe is a current favourite in our house (though they literally only seem to last a day as everyone devours them) and my Strawberry Salad with Easy Homemade Balsamic Vinaigrette Dressing Recipe is always a go-to when I want something fresh and delicious!
But tell me, how has your week been?
What season is your favourite?
And what TV show are you currently watching? Or book you're currently reading?
I'm reading Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus at the moment and it's absolutely brilliant!
