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! All too familiar with the struggles of being a career mom and the work-life balance, Zanita’s post makes me feel like I am not alone in this rat race.  Add in Camilla’s tips on how to organise my current chaos of a life, and I might whip my organizing skills into shape! Vivianna has got me wanting to try the capsule wardrobe experiment myself, and maybe add in a killer pair of flats! Oh, and how delicious does that Korean BBQ Steak …

Saturdays Are For Sweaters

Autumn Saturdays are for sweaters, period! Why, I hear you ask? First up, there as comfy as can  be! There’s no denying that universal truth that no silk shirt, flowy top, v-neck or perfect fit button down will ever be as cozy as that sweater! Snug as a bug in a rug! On top of that, it’s versatility is seriously underestimated! We all know the glorified hipster uniform of skinnies and a (often oversized) sweater or chunky knit, and I too am guilty as charged! But why not up the glamour a notch this Saturday and replace the casual skinnies with something with a bit more oomph? And why not relish that last sunny Autumn afternoon by combining with a pair of tuxedo shorts?  The shoulder embellishments on this soft grey Brax sweater are an excellent partner in crime for the elegance of the tuxedo shorts, while the knit and fit provide that necessary bit of casual counterweight.  A play of perfect opposites!

Weekend – Time to switch off

It’s Saturday, the weather forecast looks amazing, and Summer is on it’s way. It’s day 1 of some much needed family time, and I’m going to enjoy evry minute of it outside with my loved ones, a bottle of water and heaps of sunscreen. Maybe we’ll have a bit of fizz later on, but for now, I’m closing tthis laptop, and I’m going outside. Have a great weekend sweet readers, hope yours is as great as mine! I’ll be back on Monday!
