Well, I say Leeds because technically it is in Leeds. But, it is not in the city centre. Only visit these guys if you’re driving or you’re going to the student-y side of Leeds anyway. Don’t take a £13 round trip in an Uber for one like we did. Doh. (Lol, just read that back, not an intentional doughnut pun, I’m just gonna leave that in there…). It was almost worth it though because these guys are insanely delicious.
Can you believe it’s April already? I can’t even believe it’s Sunday already. Where does the time go? Weekends seem to fly by in a flash, especially when they’re jam packed and busy. I love a busy Saturday and a chilled out Sunday. This seems to be our go-to formula for a perfect weekend.
The rustic trend has been around for a while now and still continues to be as popular as ever. This is primarily due to its strong emphasis on recycling materials. Many homeowners like the idea that they are helping the environment by repurposing and recycling. Plus the unique qualities of old metal and wood add interest into their rooms, while often costing very little. So if you’re interested in creating a rustic vibe in your own home, don’t be tempted to buy everything from a store. Here are some fabulous home decor projects that can help you create a rustic theme almost instantly.
My Saturdays have been a little crazy recently, we had our mini break to Oxford, we visited my parents back in Bath (hey, Grillstock!) and I spent a Saturday shooting some awesome photos for the blog with Anna from Pear & Bear Photography too. I love being busy but my Saturdays are always the best when they’re lazy. Usually, I head to Crossfit for 8am for an interval session and to catch up with the team there. Then, I head home, grab some breakfast and tidy round the house before we head into town for some lunch or just a coffee.
We’re off to London soon to celebrate our two-year anniversary. We’ve got tickets for Charlie & The Chocolate Factory and are dying to eat at some of our most-liked places on Instagram. Top Dog Soho – we’re coming for you.
Here are a few essentials I’ll definitely be taking with me on our two-night stay. I like to pack ‘capsule wardrobe’ style pieces when I travel so I’ll be living in black skinny jeans and my dungarees. I can’t find mine to link to but these Dr Denim Skinny Dungarees available at ASOS are super similar. I’ll be pairing both of these staples with stripes and simple tees such as my new favourite Topshop Contrast Neck Stripe Top and Marks & Spencer Limited Edition Grey Tee.
As much as we all look forward to the weekend, sometimes we can fall into a rut of doing the same thing every time. I know I’m guilty of just thinking the weekends are for cleaning the house, getting washing done and going food shopping. We’ve been trying to make our weekends a bit more exciting recently by trying some new things! Here’s 8 things you can do to mix up your weekend.
It’s Friday. It’s Pay Day. This means that it’s shopping time, non?
Well the French Connection Sale is on and it’s full of lovely things and I wanted to share
some of the bits that I’ve had my eye on! Let me know what you think of my picks.
