We’ve had such a lovely week away in Cornwall. It’s been so refreshing and fun to explore somewhere a bit different for once. It was a really welcome break from the routine and a chance to try new things.
There hasn’t been much on my reading list this week, but yesterday I read this review of La Roche-Posay’s new skincare range by Jade at Raising the Rings and realised I really need to focus more on my skin.
Next week I’m looking forward to getting to know Brand Brilliance*, the new book by How to Style Your Brand author Fiona Humberstone. It’s in a van on its way to me right now and I’m pretty excited about it!
I’ve been catching up with the lovely courses that are part of my Makelight membership at the moment. This month’s focus is all about blogging – which is perfect as I’m trying to get more organised and be more successful with my blog here. If you’re not a member I’d really recommend it – you can join monthly or invest in a six-monthly membership. There’s tons of useful tools and courses, and the membership community’s a lovely place.
It’s been a quiet week and I really can’t think of anything memorable that I’ve listened to, music wise anyway. The best thing I’ve heard this week though has been Oscar and Otti chatting away to each other. I just love to hear them saying ‘da-da-da’ and copying each other and giggling together. It’s too cute.
This week’s been one for relaxing and doing very little so nothing’s been happening on the making front, sadly!
Just before our holiday I finally bought a pair of trainers. For the longest time I’ve been getting by with flats and a pair of really cheap trainers from Primark but knowing that we’d be walking and cycling in Cornwall I thought I’d better find something that’s up for the job. I found a lovely pair of Adidas trainers (these ones*, although I paid less than half in Brantano!) that are so comfortable.
I’ll write more about our holiday soon but we went for a family cycle ride and it was so much fun! I wasn’t expecting to enjoy a nearly 10 mile bike ride as much as I did and wish we had somewhere just as safe and beautiful closer to home.
