Ahh Sunday. At last you've arrived. I've been attempting to hold back my Sunday-fuelled excitement all week! My last few weekends have been busy busy busy, so today I'm planning on celebrating and indulging the S-word in all of the ways I know best...
Think of the following as customisable inspiration for your next SUPER SUNDAY.
WELLBEING : After a suitably lazy lie-in [my first in a fortnight] I'll be swapping my bathrobe and slippers for trainers and a sports bra and heading out into the fields. I took the plunge and signed up to run the Nike Women's 10k in London this summer with some of my best gals, so the training regime starts now! The perks of being home mean I have fresh air, open skies, and greenery right on the doorstep. Post-run I'll be winding down with some yoga and green tea. Could you guess, I'm on a health kick?
FOOD : Mum's the word today, so tonight [whilst I let my very dear Mama have free run of my bathroom beauty stash] I'll be whipping up a feast fit for a Queen [with a little help from Hemsley & Hemsley]. Their recipe for Roast Chicken with Onions, Lemon, and Fennel is one of my all-time favourites. It's super fast, easy, and insanely tasty.
BEAUTY : Naturally I'll be commandeering the bathroom at some point today, and making the most of a supersize tub and underfloor heating to give myself some real beauty indulgence. On the list : Lush So White Bath Bomb [yup still got some], Acqua di Parma Italian Resort Body Scrub*, Chanel No5 The Body Lotion, RMK Cleansing Balm, Sisley Radiant Glow Express Mask*, Radical Instant Revitalising Mask*, SUQQU Musculate Massage Cream*, Codage Spring Break Serum*, Dior Hydra Life Eye Cream, Oribe Signature Moisture Mask*.
TIME-OUT : There's some major magazine/blog catching-up to be done today. I've done little more than flick through the latest issues of ELLE, Vogue, and The Gentlewoman so I'll be thoroughly digesting them this afternoon, before moving on to my latest read, Molly Ringwald's When It Happens To You.
Bon weekend to you and you and you!
