This week has been really interesting for me, I have felt happy and light and in control in a way I haven't for a very long time, so I wanted to document those happy moments with a post to ease myself back into things a bit. Here is what has made me happy this week.
- The Sunshine! There is absolutely no doubt that sunshine has been a big contributor to my mood this week, it has felt bright and like spring is nearly here, and i cannot get enough of that feeling.
- Lemon water and green smoothies. I have been trying to get myself back on track for the past month health wise, i have been cycling on our indoor bike most days and going for the odd walk when it wasn't too damp or wet (asthma hell when it is!) but still something wasn't quite right and in my heart of hearts i knew it was what i was putting into my body. I had been watching a few of Ashley from That is All's videos on youtube as we share a love for Rifle Paper Co. and she mentioned a while back that she had started a detox plan where she was drinking lemon water in the morning and shared a recipe for a great green smoothie. Now i love baked goods far too much to go whole hog on this but i have implemented drinking lemon water on the regular and making sure i have a few green smoothies a week and I am feeling full of energy so I will be keeping it up!
- Planning in my Kikki K planner. I received my Kikki K wellness planner at the beginning of February and it has taken me a while to figure out how i wanted to set it up. I knew i didn't want to use the inserts that came in it as I am using a smaller planner as a wellness planner, but what i really love are the Inkwell Press inserts, unfortunately they 1. don't currently ship to the UK and 2. are completely sold out, so I had to improvise.
After a lot of mooching on pinterest and instagram i think i have it just how i want it. I made myself some watercolour and floral themed inserts and used Rifle Paper Co wrapping paper (bought from MoonKo, my new favourite shop in Sheffield) to make dividers and I think I have found peace. I still love my Erin Condren planners for journalling and memory keeping, but day to day I am loving my Kikki K! As soon as Inkwell press release new inserts though i am on that!!
- Finding my reading mojo again. This is the big one really, I have really let my reading habit slip over the past few months, and when i was reading I wasn't enjoying it as much, i didn't become deeply emersed in the fictional world while reading which is the thing i love most about it. Over the past few weeks I have read some great books that have got me back into that groove, and I am back to updating my Goodreads again. Mainly I have been reading on my iPad but I have also been loving audiobooks for while my hands are busy or i am driving, I am currently working my way through the Harry Potter books using Audible, I signed up and got a free first credit and now I am officially hooked!
This weekend I will be:
Reading: Moon over Soho by Ben Aaronovitch, its a real hoot!
Eating: Cinnamon rolls, I have been meaning to bake them for weeks!
Spending my time: Relaxing with family, my sister and her partner and my aunt are back home to visit so we have a family meal to cook and its mothers day!
I hope you have a fabulous weekend!
