10 Things That Have Made Me Happy This Week

I’m so ready for this weekend. Bank holiday and three days to potter. Mummy is heading to London for the day, I've got a yoga class and a haircut booked, and a date day to explore the city with the boy on Monday. I’m keeping my fingers crossed we have lovely weather after the last week of not knowing how to get dressed in the morning (and snow, I mean how is it okay for there to be snow in London in April?!) and am looking forward to a chilled out couple of days in the city. Here’s to a happy weekend! And here’s what’s made me happy this week…

26 Grains

The 26 Grains formula is to bring customers delicious wholesome grain based dishes or Bowls of Hygee as its termed. Hygge is a fundamental concept in Scandinavia with no direct English translation implying the notions of "coziness" or relaxing with friends and loved ones.

I've seen so many pictures of bowls of porridge over the last few months so after a Lulu Lemon yoga class one Sunday I decided to join Sarah for a visit (apparently this is termed 'basic' by Generation-Y and is a super trendy combo for a Sunday morning!!). I may or may not (definitely may) have already had breakfast so was really only accompanying but ended up persuing the menu and I was more than a little bit tempted!

A couple of weeks ago, something fun happened: Sarah came back from 6 months in Hong Kong. We've been at school together since we were 16, traveled India together for 6 weeks and have spent the last year and a half sharing a flat in London. So, the news that she was coming back was very exciting indeed! 

The first weekend that she was home and in the city, we planned a little trip to the stylish Sketch, for brunch, located just of Regent Street on Conduit Street in central London.

10 Things That Have Made Me Happy This Week

The past week seems to have flown by... Two after work events, a million meetings, a couple of gym classes and trying to fit in time to be in bed before 11 wherever possible (I'm an absolute 8 hour girl). It's felt like a positive week though. The flat has been full of flowers, I've woken up to sun shining through the blinds at least twice and May is a month of fun, with some great plans in place already. Here are the things that have made this last week great...

Sunny London

I've been dreaming of beaches and bikinis, of blue skies and blue sea for a while now. But London just looks better when the sun shines and the weather is definitely helping my cravings for some travel.
