The Weekly Five

The Weekly Five

Hello! This is the first week for me where it has felt like Autumn is coming. I am planning on a weekend full of steaming tea and plenty of family time. Happy Friday!

Here are five of my recent favourite discoveries...

1) The original sexy rashie

Hands up...I have a real soft spot for this one. Finally, a rashie that is flattering and is oh so beautiful to wear. I tested out the Une Piece recently during my time in Amalfi and I am in love. It’s so sleek, provides a lovely layer of warmth and feels wonderful to wear. I know it will be perfect when I take George swimming too, to keep the sun off my back while I play with him in the waves.

2) A good holiday read

Emma Straub’s The Vacationers about a haphazard family vacation to Mallorca was an ideal page-turner for the beach. It also has me looking at villas on the Spanish island, dreaming of our next holiday…

3) You have definitely seen this ad before…

I work in the world of marketing and I always enjoy little gems like this video titled ‘this is a generic millennial ad’. Because of course, all millennials spontaneously dance in the street and run along the beach with sparklers like, all the time.

4) Nailed it

I am rarely one for nail polish, but I unearthed and old favourite - Revlon’s Grey Suede - and have been admiring my hands all week. I love the chic, understated colour for this not-really-hot and not-really-cold time of the year.

5) Recipes please!

With Autumn upon us I’m rolling up my sleeves for the onslaught of soup-making that will go down in our kitchen. I found this great index charting in-season produce to help inspire you have any favourite soup recipes? Sam is particularly hankering for a good cream of tomato soup...all suggestions much appreciated! (You can see my favourite warming winter soup here).

With Love,
