Maybe I’m not the best person to write this post, as there are some days where I find myself not changing out of my PJ’s, struggling to pay bills on time, and having to YouTube things like how long to boil an egg for and what all the different lights on your dashboard mean (I’ve also burnt pasta once, but I try to tell myself that all the best chefs started somewhere…) I think as you become an adult, your priorities and outlook on life begin to change. Once you start realising the value of the things and people around you, you appreciate it’s not spending all your money on new clothes, staying out till 4am and having the latest beauty box subscription that give you happiness; but it’s the memories you create, and the people you make them with.
I’ll hold my hands up and admit that it’s taken me a good few years to realise that sometimes spending a night with loved ones on the sofa brings much more contentment than drinking too many jagerbombs and regrettably sending too many drunken snapchats to 90% of your phonebook. With being an adult comes a whole host of responsibilities, but it also means that we have the ability to indulge ever so slightly now and again and what would life be without treating yourself? With me and my other half hopefully buying a house in the near future, one of the things that I have been looking at is a new TV and in particular the Ultra HD 4K TV by Panasonic.
If you haven’t seen this bad boy, get yourself down to a showroom. Not only is the HD quality unreal, the HDR (high dynamic range) delivers images closer to how we see the real world and how filmmakers envision their creations, which sounds pretty cool and futuristic to me. The overall design is beautiful as well, and the features such as the adjustable pedestal make it perfect for any home and surface.
At the moment, as I am trying to save every little penny for our deposit, spending a cosy night in has become my favourite pastime, especially in the winter months. Also, with Hygge becoming all the rage recently, I’m sure I’m not the only one opting to spend more time indoors with good food and good company.
If you’re looking for a sweet treat to make, my favourite banana bread recipe can be found here – and let’s face it, it has to be ever so slightly better for you than a regular cake because it has fruit in!
We’ve also started watching the newest season of Suits once again. If you aren’t aware of this series, I would highly recommend you give it a go. It is very fast paced, but also quite comical and makes you feel very intelligent when you watch it, even though it’s all lawyer-talk (which I’m pretty sure is the technical term.) I definitely prefer bulk watching it as you find yourself so invested in the characters that you just want to know more, and it’s been a while since I’ve felt like that with a TV programme.
Although I may be slightly late to the party, I think that nights in with the people that mean the most to me will be what I fill most of my weekends with in 2017. Plus, when we actually buy a house, I might not have the money to do much else!
