5 Things – Weekend reads

Nothing more relaxing during the weekend than catching up on your favourite reads. My cosy little corner of the sofa, the softest blanket ever (Scapa Home, if you’re interested), a steaming hot cuppa and my iPad, how perfect can it get? During the week, I tend to diagonally read whatever takes my fancy (oh I’m superficial like that), and I’ll bookmark the interesting ones for a more thorough (*notepad at the ready to write down ideas*) read later on. What have I got bookmarked to get me inspired this weekend? Here we go!

Weekend – Time to switch off

Any moment where I can squeeze in a little beauty action is a good moment! Whether an extensive face mask routine (triple threats are the way to go!), a cleansing, face massage quickie to end my day, doing my nails or glamming up my otherwise bare naked face, it brightens my mood and eases the stress.

The chit chat, the head massage, the capable fingers of the hair stylist colouring, …
