drinking // Aperol Spritz. My new favourite drink.
enjoying // the US Office. After finishing Parks & Recreation I needed a new series to get in to.
listening // to the podcast ‘Happier’ by Gretchen Rubin. I’ve been hooked on Gretchen’s advice ever since I read an article about her in Red magazine. Happier podcasts are 25 minutes of little tips and tricks you can incorporate in to your life to make you happier. So far I’ve adopted the 1 minute rule and a weekly power hour. Definitely worth a listen.
walking // around Budapest. We did so much walking which is the best way to discover a city I find.
needing // a trip back home. London is great and everything, but sometimes I need to press the reset button and I do this by visiting my home in Lancashire or Joe’s house by the beach in Newcastle.
travelling // to Budapest. Beautiful city with amazing architecture, good food and such cheap drinks! I’ve made a video that I’ll be uploading over the next week.
thinking // about what sort of roast I’m going to cook for everyone this Sunday. I’m thinking a treacle marinated beef joint.
wearing // Levi 721 jeans. I’ve never owned a pair of ‘proper’ jeans and after getting through another pair of Topshop jeans I decided enough was enough and to invest in some Levi’s. Probably the best purchase I’ve made all year.
practising // getting my running speed up to where it was. I’m not a fast runner at all (nor I doubt I ever will be), but I’m trying to get my 5K to 29/30 minutes again.
learning // how to put my hair in to a chignon. This elusive hair style has evaded me for years, so I’m keen to master it as it just looks so put together and chic.
reading // The Good Bride Guide by Matt Dunn.
working // hard at the job that I love. In terms of my career, this is the happiest I’ve ever been.
cooking // black rice salad with mango, coconut, cashews, spring onions and a lime-chilli dressing. I’ve had it for lunch practically every day for the last two weeks.
