So we’re celebrating hump day with a little pick me up…we’re sharing some fun things to do this weekend! We’re always on the lookout for new places to eat, to shop, to see – simple things that make us feel good 🙂 So with that in mind we’ve rounded up a few of our favourites that we’ll be doing this weekend.
GO FOR A GIRLIE BRUNCH
Being brunch obsessed (it’s definitely the best meal of the day, right?!) we love nothing more than a leisurely long girlie lunch. We’re not so fussy on the location, spending girlie time with some good grub and a hot cuppa is what it’s all about. There’s a few new places on our radar right now Bronte, Chiswick Fire Station and Dalloway Terrace are on our current hotlist – we promise to report back when we get the chance to try them! Failing that pancakes at The Good Life Eatery, avo & eggs on toast at The Edition Hotel and the whole menu at Granger & Co are some of our faves.
GET YOURSELF 2017 READY
We’ve spoken about the fact that we’re still firm diary users, we just can’t get to grips with inputting everything on our Iphones (a bit ironic for two bloggers!) Plus (to justify ourselves) with two jobs & two schedules we need the space to write it all down and view our weeks ahead in one go (only to then cross everything out again when things change! ) We’ve already been brainstorming ideas for 2017 and rather than scraps of paper in the back of our current diaries it’s time to get 2017 ready with a fresh organiser! For us, there’s only one option when it comes to a diary & that’s Smythson. They’re the epitome of chic, come in every colour way possible and even better – you can get them personalised too. They’re definitely worth the investment – an item we both use everyday for the whole year, it makes perfect sense! We love the mini size as it fits in all our little cross body bags but there’s lots of other inbetween sizes if you fancy something a little bigger.
BUY SOME LUXE CASHMERE
How cold has it got?! Every morning we get dressed and wonder how many layers we need to wear to stay warm! With that in mind we’ve been investing in (TOO MUCH) cashmere. Cashmere is one of our favourite things we look forward to wearing as the temperatures drop and there’s nothing we love more than wrapping up on a cold day in some chunky cashmere, jeans and a cosy boot (our go-to Winter uniform!). We’ve been really impressed with Jigsaw’s cashmere recently…cashmere & stripes in one, what could be better?!
INDULGE IN A HAIR TREATMENT
Why is it that everything feels so dry at the moment? Our nails, skin and especially hair really take their toll in the colder climes. So this weekend we’ve made a little promise to ourselves to make some time for some pampering. Nothing quite beats a pamper Sunday evening session! On our radar right now is lots of coconut oil (we use this everywhere… to cook, as a moisturiser on our bodies and a mask for our hair) and our all time favourite Aveda’s damage remedy Intensive Reconstructing Treatment. The newest one on our list is L’Oreal’s Dryness Defence Balm, perfect for hydrating our dry ends!
