MY PERFECT WEEKEND

 

I’ve had the idea to document what my perfect weekend would look like, and because it will obviously be filled with my favourite things, I’m so excited to write it! 🙂

A LAZY MORNING

I would definitely start my perfect weekend with a lazy Saturday morning! Maybe treating myself to a pastry and a cup of tea in bed, followed by some stretchy yoga and an Instagram scroll. I love the feeling of there being nothing to rush around for and I can take my time doing what I please.

GETTING OUTSIDE

The other weekend we went for a long walk at a local lakeside property, (along with an ice cream, of course) and I have to say, being surrounded by green is one of my favourite things. It just instantly makes me feel calmer and I love hearing all the wildlife outside.

A NAP

Yep, I’m adding an afternoon nap to my list! Over the recent weeks I’ve become such a fan of napping, I don’t even need that long. Just half an hour and it makes me feel so refreshed and like a new person again!

BAKING

I find baking so therapeutic, and I love spending time making healthy treats that I can enjoy throughout the week. It’s an activity where my mind completely shuts off and I go into a really meditate state, just enjoying the process. Plus, I get to eat one with a cup of tea afterwards so it’s a total win-win situation.

BEING CREATIVE

Whether that’s painting (on my legs, naturally, then taking a photo), creating a photo for the weekend hashtag project on Instagram, or starting a new embroidery, fitting in some time on a weekend to be creative will be high on my list.

Spending time to be creative really makes me feel happy and my cup re-filled 🙂

 

How would you spend your perfect weekend? I would love to know!

    That sounds perfect! I hardly ever let myself have a chilled weekend so I definitely need to create my perfect weekend and just do it!

      It’s one of my favourite things! It feels good to enjoy it afterwards with a cup of tea too, knowing you were the one that made it 🙂

  • Sounds like the perfect chilled Sunday! I’m all about an afternoon nap on the weekend and I would love to get into baking again (I think I’m feeling inspired by Bake Off) Natalie x

      I have one episode to catch up on this week as we were on holiday and I cannot wait! I’m just thinking about what to bake to enjoy it with!

  • This sounds idyllic! Mine would also involve reading and a nice bath. Baking is something that Dave and I are going to attempt more this autumn!

      Autumn baking is the perfect time to get back into it I think, apple crumble is my favourite! x

  • Sounds the perfect weekend! I love baking and having a slow morning. My perfect start would be pain au chocolat with fruit, frothy coffee and Youtube. Then a nice walk. Maybe some baking in the afternoon, an easy dinner and a pamper / TV night!

      Pain au choclat’s are my absolute favourite! xx
