My Friday Favourites!
Just thought I would share a few things that are making my life sweeter at the moment! Quite like the BBC, the things that are either entertaining, informing or educating me!
First up has to be The Homeworker magazine. I downloaded the first issue last week while I was in London during half term and have been slowly reading it on my iPad. I wouldn’t recommend you read it on your phone. There are lots of thought provoking articles, it is beautifully designed and I love the mix of insight and whimsy.
During my London trip, I spent time working in the cafe at M&S on Oxford Street! (hello free wifi!) I was feeling VERY tired at the time and looked it too. You know when you are so tired but cannot be bothered to even put make up on that will make you look better but still you are cba? Well I shamelessly snuck into the beauty department and slavered on the Emma Hardie Midas Touch Revitalising Eye Serum which was amazing and really perked me up. (it is however out of my price league) However, while I was doing this, a lovely M&S lady came up to me and offered me a few samples to try at home and the standout was Pixi Vitamin-C Cavier Balm which is brilliant! I wear it at night and I wake up looking alive – not the half zombie. The closest to the dreamy Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Serum I have tried. And it is a lot cheaper at £24 from M&S.
Having flowers in a vase near my laptop as I work is definitely a luxury that never fails to boost my mood and normally I view this as a treat but I am loving having Daffodils available to me at the moment. 99p a bunch normally and they do last a good week. Bringing sunshine to my working day! (although this crazy warm weather is also a real mood lifter)
I’m also mainlining podcasts as I work too – I’m working on a few projects that need an extra boost of creativity on my part and I find listening to inspiring people really helpful. I recommend Hashtag Authentic with Sara Tasker – and also any podcast that has her on as a guest. She has a book out too now. She speaks with honesty and clarity on running a business whilst also suffering from chronic illness. My friends think I’m bonkers but I’ve always had a soft spot for David Tennant (he just seems like a really nice man who is VERY good at his job), so when I saw he had a podcast, I was there. I loved his interview with Olivia Coleman and Jodie Whitacker.
What are your favourite things at the moment? I love hearing about great books, podcasts, clothes or anything really that brings happiness!
