I had a special girlfriend over for dinner last night, I cooked a garlic and thyme roast chicken with my favourite salad – crispy chorizo, chopped red onion, mixed tomatoes and gallons of cider vinegar. We chatted about babies and Instagram, husbands and shopping, politics and Netflix… and how addicted we are to our phones. It was then we realised we hadn’t looked at our phones once that evening – and it was lovely. People do say ‘home is where the wifi connects automatically’ but I am far too guilty of being on my phone too much when I am home and not switching off and relaxing properly. So this weekends Sunday inspo post is focused on relaxation. Lets all try and switch off a bit this week, and remember what it was like to have a few moments to ourselves, screen free with just our thoughts for company.
In the first of a little mini-series on beauty I wanted to answer a few questions people have asked on Snapchat and Instagram and show you what my beauty essentials are. I am starting with my skin and my every-day beauty routine.
Writing this from sunnier climates I don’t have my usual Sunday evening dreads and it makes me ponder why I have them in the first place. It used to be work, going back to a deadline or a particularly mean client, or even the hangover induced dreads, then the ‘I am about to be left alone with the baby for a full week’ dreads… and recently a sort of sadness that another weekend is over, time is going too fast… and having children only makes you realise that more. How do they grow so fast?!
I have written about Vita Liberata so many times now but that’s because it really is so good. And with this turn in the weather I wanted to re-hash an old post to give you a quick step by step so you can get those pins out this weekend!
I hope you’re having a lovely bank holiday weekend, whether you’re away or at home, busy or bored, hopefully the break was needed and being enjoyed. We are spending some time with mini V’s grandparents in the countryside, always so lovely getting out of London. Although I know if I had to move here I would miss it!
