Welcome back to another Weekly Love post, and happy last day of April!
I really enjoy sitting down on a Sunday and reflecting on all the little things that made me smile over the week, and I love reading them back and reminiscing on all of the memories I’ve made this year so far.
Here are all the things I was loving last week.
This past couple of weeks I’ve been making the most of the warmer weather and running outside. I’m not the best runner by any means, and I damaged my knee a couple of years ago so I have to be careful, but I’ve really been enjoying it. I prefer running outdoors so much more than being in the gym and it’s nice to do something outside when I’ve been in the office all day.
After Work Drinks
Jordan starts his new job this week, so on Friday evening, I went to his leaving drinks in Altrincham with a few people I used to work with. It was lovely to see some old faces and meet some of the people that have started since I left and catch up with everyone.
After the work drinks, I met my friend Abi for dinner at a Lebanese restaurant in Hale, which is one of my favourites. The food was amazing, and it was lovely to spend some time with her as she’s also getting married next year.
I ended up having a few hours to myself on Saturday so I did some very much needed life admin. I finished a couple of posts I’ve been putting off for a while, which felt really good and took some photos for a collaboration that I’ve got going live next week.
*Cue adult update* – My Nutribullet broke a couple of weeks ago so this week we bought a new one from Tesco. It’s their own brand one, but it does the job and is only £16. Now summer is around the corner, I want to get into the habit of eating a bit better and upping my fruit and veg intake, so this is the perfect place to start
As we’ve had a couple of colder evenings, I started lighting candles again in the house. I bought an apple orchard one last autumn from Zara Home and it’s been in the cupboard ever since so this week I thought was the perfect time to get it out as it smells so springy.
Hasn’t the blossom started coming out on the trees a lot more this week? I’ve noticed it so much more in the last couple of days and every time I see it, it makes me excited for the next couple of months and spending more time outdoors.
It was my Nan’s birthday on Friday so Jordan and I went round on Sunday for lunch and to spend some time with my family. We had a great selection of food (anyone else’s Nan make enough food for the whole street?) and a birthday cake at the end. After seeing my side of the family, we went over to my future in-laws for a cup of tea and a catch-up and it rounded the week off perfectly.
I recently started thinking about our invites and save the dates that we wanted to send out seen as the wedding is less than a year away now, when the lovely people at Paperless Post got in touch to offer me some tokens for their website. This week I designed and sent the first lot of our save the dates our electronically which saved me so much hassle, and you can even collate replies and chase people up who haven’t RSVPed – perfect if you’re trying to work to a budget.
Old English Co.
Old English Co. got in touch with me to talk about a competition they’re holding to win a set of adorable enamel pins. The competition is open until the 20th May and you won’t want to miss out because they really are sweet! The details can be found here and the whole range can her found here – good luck!
