10 Things

It's hard to narrow this down to 10 this week; this weather is making smiling infectious. Despite the fact we are typically British and moan whatever the weather, I think we can all agree, sunshine is better than grey clouds and drizzle! So here's why I'm happy and smiley this week...

1. Tramlines - Yep, still smiling about this. IT'S THIS WEEKEND. Our plans are set to be nothing short of epic. I hate that word but it seems fitting in this instance. Read about my Pre-Tramlines Prep here.

2. Post-work sun worshiping - it's cooled down slightly, we can dine al-fresco. Life. Is. Good.

3. No tights - I'm loving tight-less life. It's nice to flash a bit'a leg!

4. Chase & Status' new song - Lost & Not Found - BIG FAN. I can feel myself grinning like a Cheshire cat listening to it in the car. It makes me appreciate summer that little bit more.

5. Amsterdam...still - the flights are booked, the hotel is being booked this weekend. CANNOT. WAIT.

6. Berries - Strawberries, raspberries, blackberries and blueberries every day? My kinda dessert...breakfast...snack...I like them, okay?!

7. My Honey Bee Birthday Cake - It was my Dad's birthday yesterday. Despite having to work all day, we all had a really lovely evening. My Grandparents and Aunt-who's-not-my-Aunt came round to celebrate. We had planned to go out for a celebratory tea but the hot weather and being stuck in an office all day lead my Dad to prefer an al-fresco dinner at home. We had my lovely Italian Cod and Split Potatoes, berries for dessert and the cake I am SO proud of. I wasn't sure how it would look or taste - a very runny mix and a long cooking time. All in all, it was bloody good! And, it included marzipan bees! (Recipe to come over the weekend). Oh, and the birthday surprise...GO APE! Dad and I are both very excited. For those of you that don't know, this is Go Ape. Perfect Father Daughter bonding time before I flee the country for a lazy backpacking life.

8. Fancie's new cupcakes - I ventured to Fancie this week on one of my lunch breaks. Okay, I cracked..I couldn't possibly wait any longer to try their new range. I opted for the Salted Caramel and it was better than you could imagine. Keep up the good work Fancie!

9. Flower Power - I don't care how stupid I may look, I am LOVING Floral Crowns/headbands. They've over the top, pretty and colour and bang on trend for the festival season. What's not to love?! This one is from ASOS and there's loads of other beauties there too.

10. Homemade Lemonade - I made this recently for the lovely picnic Dan and I had last weekend. I can't get enough of the stuff!

What's making you smile this week?! Let me know, I'd love to hear from you.
