It may be mid-week already, but there’s still twelve hours of hump-day to get over and a three day weekend for UK readers, so we’ll just casually overlook my tardiness on this one. This week I’ve got five things to add to your to-do list…
TRY BALLET: Well, in a slightly different form. I’ve been leaning more and more towards taking adult ballet classes for a good six months now, but whilst I’m still dilly-dallying on taking that jump and booking some lessons, I’ve introduced BALLET BEAUTIFUL in to my work out routine. Sounds fun right? It is, but it’s also pretty intense. I did arms on Monday after a full body Pilates work out and my body still hasn’t recovered. BUT, it’s the most graceful I’ve ever felt whilst working out and feels very relaxing if you ignore the burn.
PIN THINGS: I’m 100% back on the PINTEREST bandwagon. I fall of from time to time, but at the moment it’s part of my weekly routine. It helps me to feel much more inspired when it comes to photography but also works as a wonderful distraction technique in times of stress (not the most orthodox method of combating stress, but let me have this one). Set up an account and get pinning, it’s addictive I tell you!
GET THE GLOW: After Madeline Shaw’s new book GET THE GLOW released last week I was hooked. My train home from London was completely delayed and I barely realised as I was so engrossed in it. She knows her stuff, but comes across as positive and friendly with none of the patronising tones or scare mongering that can often surface when it comes to nutritional reads (Eat Pretty – I’m looking at you). It was just what I needed to get back on the healthy bandwagon and I’d definitely recommend giving it a read if you need a little nudge in the right direction.
SUMMER SHOE SEARCH: It’s that time of year we all dread. The weather is warming up and it’s that transitional period where we need to start thinking about shoes for the summer months. I kicked off my summer collection with a fresh new pair of WHITE CONVERSE, followed by some rose gold sandals from Topshop. In two pairs I’m set for cooler and warmer weather *pats self on back*. May is the best time for summer shoe shopping as the stock is plentiful and we’re not yet bored of the warmer weather, so be prepared and use your bank holiday weekend wisely!
WATCH THIS: This Lisa Eldridge Sun Kissed Golden Look is so gorgeous I’ve watched it six times already just this week. It’s a look I’ve been wearing daily (with the addition of liquid liner of course) and I can’t quite get enough of hitting play on all of her uploads at the moment. OR… *shameless plug alert* if you’re interested in something a little more hair related, I uploaded a HAIR CARE ROUTINE last Sunday. It’s a chatty one so you will need to kit yourself out with supplies before hitting play, but I have a lot of hair so there was a lot to cover!
