Declutter Your Bathroom

Friday, 28 November 2014 ·

Us girls sure do love to hoard our products and as such we tend to hog every inch of space in the bathroom! Since moving in with my boyfriend I've realised boys also seem to collate an impressive array of lotions and potions and not long ago I realised we needed to have a sort out and clear some space...Here are my tips to declutter your bathroom!

First up, and most importantly, before you try and organise anything you need to have a clear out of the products that are used up, out of date or you simply don't like anymore. You'll be amazed at how much space these are taking up! It's one of those jobs we all put off but it'll make organising everything sooo much easier. 
Bathroom Cabinet
You can't go wrong with having a good bathroom cabinet but make sure to get one with a decent height between the shelves so you can fit in all your deodorants, cleansers, toothbrush and hair detanglers. There's nothing more frustrating than the shelves being too low for any of your big products. 

I also pop all my little bit and pieces like hair bobbles, cotton pads etc in the little sections in the doors of the cabinet which works perfectly as otherwise these just linger in the bottom of drawers, handbags etc. 

The most useful thing I have in my bathroom is a tall, narrow set of white wicker drawers which sits next to my sink. So, for a start, this is where I keep my candle, hand soap and little faux plant - I just love how this looks!
But anyway, more importantly for the drawers... Drawers this size are great for keeping bits and pieces like medicines, spare razors, etc etc. I also use the top drawer for more of the products I use on a daily basis but don't have a spot in the cabinet. Bathrooms can get cluttered really quickly if you like to have an array of products on hand to mix up your routine so switch the drawers around every now and then so you have different things in the most easy to access drawers - it might just reinvent your routine! 

Wicker Baskets
Am I the only one who is completely and utterly obsessed with Lush products (or bath products in general to be honest)? My Lush collection got a little out of hand and yet I didn't want to hide it all away in the drawers (it's just too pretty) so I picked up this basket to pop at the end of my bath. 

A basket with a lid is also a great way of keeping things looking a little more minimalist and clean if you prefer it, plus they can hide a multitude of sins...

Shower Caddy
Got housemates or live with your other half? If so, the collection of shower gels and shampoos can get clutter up the sides of the bath in no time and every  time you pick one up it's like a game of dominoes and all the bottles end up round your feet in the bath.

If this seems familiar then maybe you need to pick up a shower caddy. I absolutely love mine as it keeps all of our products out of the way and easily accessible while in the shower. The hooks are also ideal for hanging a flannel or loofa. There's a design for pretty much every style of shower so there's really no excuse not to have one.

Do you have any tips for keeping your bathroom clean and organised?

A Winter Reading List...

Wednesday, 26 November 2014 ·

As a book worm through and through I need absolutely no excuse to just curl up and read my book. However, since the dark evenings have well and truly set in it seems so much more appropriate to snuggle up on the sofa with a few candles lit and a hot chocolate (with marshmallows and whipped cream) to read a few chapters of my latest book obsession. If you're in need of some recommendations then look no further... 

The Maze Runner by James Dashner
By this point, if you haven't already heard of The Maze Runner you must have been hiding out in a cave for the past few months! This is a book that's been on my iPad for months and months and only when it came out on film did I finally get around to reading it. This book has so many twists and turns it's guaranteed to keep you turning the pages until the very end at which point you'll immediately want to pick up the sequel, The Scorch Trials, to find out what happens next. 

The book starts with the doors to the lift opening and Thomas getting his first view of the Glade, his new home at the middle of a huge stone maze. All he and the other Gladers know is that they need to find a way out of the maze, although what will await them when they finally do escape, no one knows and with Grievers in their way it may not be as easy as it would first seem. 

If you liked The Hunger Games or Divergent then I can't recommend this highly enough. 

We've all heard the saying 'live everyday like it's your last' and very few of us will ever actually take this to heart and do anything about it but this book will make you think again.

Set in a US high school, Sam is killed in a car crash on the way home from a party and is then forced to relive that day over and over again until she can find out the real cause of the accident. This story involves it all, love, betrayal, friendship, plus so much more.

I challenge you not to fall in love with each and every aspect of this book. 

There's something about the idea of the circus which draws us all in but nowadays the reality of the circus is typically a (huge) letdown - Cirque de Soleil doesn't count people! So since real life circuses don't live up to our imagination then a book about a circus seems the next best thing!

Le Cirque de Reves is open only from nightfall to dawn (yep you read that right) and appears without warning with only a handful of people knowing where it's next stop will be. There are so many tents that you couldn't possibly hope to visit them all in a single night so a return trip is must to continue your explorations, the question is though, will the circus still be there tomorrow night.

I was completely enchanted by this book, nearly missing my stop on the train on more than one occasion. All I wanted to do when it was done was start it all over again!

Spiced Christmas Biscuits

Sunday, 23 November 2014 ·

So it may be a little early to be posting Christmas recipes but lets be honest we all love the festive season so why not start to enjoy it a little earlier than usual? One of my favourite things to make is always spiced biscuits which I often give as little gifts to friends and family but are also work great as tree decorations! These biscuits are super simple and you could even rustle up a double size batch and keep half of the dough wrapped in cling film for a week or so until you need to make the inevitable second batch! 

- 175g dark muscavado sugar
- 100g butter
- 85g golden syrup 
- 2tsp ground ginger
- 1tsp ground cinnamon
- 350g plain flour 
- 1tsp bicarbonate of soda
- 1 egg 
- icing sugar (to decorate) 
- silver balls / hundreds and thousands (to decorate) 

1. Heat the sugar, butter and golden syrup in a bowl  in the microwave until melted. 

TIP: Do this in 10 second blasts, and stir in between until it's all melted to avoid burning the sugar. 

2. Mix the ginger, cinnamon and plain flour in a bowl then make a well in the centre for the wet ingredients. 

3. Dissolve the bicarbonate of soda in 1tsp cold water and pour into the well in the dry ingredients, followed by the sugar, butter and golden syrup mixture and egg (lightly beaten). 

4. Mix together all of the ingredients until you have a soft dough and then wrap the mixture in cling film and place in the fridge for 40-60 minutes so it can firm up a little. 

TIP: Use a wooden spoon for this not an electric whisk. It may take a little longer and be more effort but it'll be worth it as the whisk often gets clogged with the dough making it more trouble than it's worth.

5. Whilst waiting, preheat the oven to 170 degrees celsius. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and roll out until around 0.5cm thick and cut into shapes using cutters, transferring them to a baking tray (lined with greaseproof paper) as you go. If you want to use them as decorations make sure to pierce a hole through the dough using a skewer. 

7. Pop them into the middle of the oven for 12-15minutes or until they are golden brown when they should be transferred to a wire rack to cool. 

8. Now to decorate them. Mix up the icing - make sure to keep it nice and thick so you have control over where you place it, and decorate your biscuits however you like. To be honest I really like how these biscuits look when they  aren't decorated!

Now finally it's time to try one or get them hung up on the tree! Unfortunately I can't hang them on my tree as one of our numerous cats would no doubt pull them off and have a little feast! 

What I'm Watching...

Friday, 21 November 2014 ·

As the cold and dark nights have truly begun to settle in I've taken the opportunity more and more to turn to my laptop to snuggle up under a blanket and immerse myself in some new TV programmes and I am loving them! Keep reading if you're in need of a little inspiration!

I only discovered this a couple of weeks ago (thanks to Lily Melrose) and I immediately got hooked and have already run out of episodes! This is the story of the young Mary Queen of Scot's survival in the French court where she encounters love triangles, enemies and countless other obstacles. I love a historical drama and if, like me, you loved The Tudors then this is a must watch! 

Boardwalk Empire
This one may not be new to a lot of you as there was a huge amount of hype about this in the run up to the launch of Sky Atlantic in the UK. I however was a little slow to jump on the bandwagon and only really got into it a couple of months ago. This all revolves around gangsters, prohibition and politics - what's not to love?! It can be a little confusing at first but stick with it! 

Harry Potter
It's a tradition that every year, in the run up to Christmas, I watch all of the Harry Potter films. Everybody loves a bit of Harry Potter and it's got to be one of the best things to watch curled up on the sofa with a hot chocolate whilst the rain beats down on the windows. 

30 Rock 
If you're in need of a chuckle then I can't recommend this highly enough. Each episode is only 20 minutes long so I love to pop this on while I do my make up or while I cook dinner. Tina Fey and Alex Baldwin work so well together in this and I just can't resist it when I have a spare half an hour or so although be warned it can get addictive and you may have watched 3/4 episodes before you know what's happened! 

Yet another programme I got utterly hooked on and have subsequently run out of episodes of, and again something people have raved about for years and I had previously ignored. The twists and turns in this series will keep you coming back for more, and there are more than a couple of characters that you may well fall in love with just a little bit... 

Downton Abbey
Last but not least, this one goes without saying and somehow I don't think any explanation is going to be necessary! This is pure, feel good television and essentially it has no flaws, I simply love it. It's always all anyone can talk about on Monday mornings so if you haven't already I think it's about time you caught up before the Christmas special! 

What have you been watching lately? Since I've run out of Reign, Revenge AND Downton Abbey I need some more recommendations! 

Take A Little Time...

Tuesday, 18 November 2014 ·

Do you ever feel like life is running away from you? I've most certainly been feeling like this the last month or so thanks to work being incredible busy and more often than not, stressful. Taking my laptop home every night from work has meant I've had little to no time to relax and it's started to take its toll...

Previously I underestimated the importance of just taking some time, be at an hour or just 10 minutes, to simply relax, switch off from the world and maybe have a little pamper session. I've had a brief reprieve from the madness of work in the last week and top of my list was to do just that, relax and my gosh has it felt good. Making the most of the free time I've been making sure I set aside some time to 'myself' every night and I think I've got my relaxation or pamper essentials down to a tea! 

So here's my step by step guide... 

1. Get a bath running and add in your favourite Lush bath bomb - at the moment mine is So White which has a lovely refreshing apple fragrance. Despite how much I love this, a bath simply isn't complete without a mountain of bubbles to retreat under so I usually add in some Radox too. 

2. Now for some mood lighting...I have a ridiculous obsession with fairy lights and candles (they're all over the flat!) and the bathroom is no exception so I switch on my adorable metal lantern fairy lights and light by Calvin Klein Leaves candle. 

3. Next up is entertainment. If you're one of the lucky ones who can simply lie back and relax then pop on your current favourite album and you're good to go. I however am not one of those people so I usually opt either for my book or catching up on some tv (lately it's been X Factor and Downton Abbey!).

4. Once you have all this set up it's time to pop on a face mask, sink under the bubbles and switch off from the world! Mask of Magnaminty from Lush is a new one for me and I love it as you can use it on your body as well as your face and the mint in it is super refreshing!

5. If you're feeling particularly luxurious, why not pop on a hair mask whilst you're at it!

After all this, touch wood, you should be feeling sufficiently relaxed and ready to take on another week in the real world, at least that's the plan! 

Autumn Luxe: Home

Sunday, 16 November 2014 ·

TIme for the third and final part of my first ever mini series and I think this might be my favourite one. Now don't get me wrong I love playing with my make-up, trying out new products and wrapping up in cosy accessories my favourite thing of all is always homeware, especially in autumn/winter. 

Autumn Lighting, Fairy Lights

First things first, and in my opinion the most important, mood lighting. Although I love a bit of mood lighting all year round it can be a little irrelevant in the summer months when it stays light until 10pm. So, the one and only thing I like about the shorter days at the moment is being able to get in from work and immediately switch on the fairy lights, lamps and light some candles. 

I absolutely love these little moroccan style star lights. The filigree type detailing would give off the most beautiful soft light. I actually have 2 sets very similar to these but they're spheres so maybe these will be next on my list. Buy here

This lamp is literally perfection for me, the dainty copper legs and plain shade remind of the typical Scandinavian style which I would love to emulate in my flat, unfortunately I like my knick knacks a bit too much to fully commit to the minimalist style. Buy here

Fighting for top spot in terms of importance has to be blankets and cushions to keep you cosy when it's dark outside and you're snuggled up on the sofa having a Harry Potter marathon with your fairy lights twinkling away. 

Any chunky knit blanket is ideal for this time of the year, not only do they look luxurious draped over the side of the sofa, they're also a whole new level of comfy! We have far too many blankets in our house as apparently I don't share... Buy here

In addition to my many other obsessions, I also have a soft spot for cushions believe it or not and I've been on the hunt for some cute festive ones for the upcoming festive period and this one is perfect! Buy here

Onto a couple of little more random things. As you may know by now, I adore baking - it's my favourite thing to do to relax, and baking at Christmas is probably the best as you do everything in adorable shapes! When it comes to shapes for biscuits you can't go wrong with a gingerbread man and I love that this one is copper. Buy here

Last but not least, a completely unnecessary item and yet one I just can't get out of my head. I adore this wooden tray from H&M. It would be perfect on my bedside table to hold some of my must have bits and pieces, so although it's really autumnal it's top of my current home wish list. Buy here

Is there anything you can't live without during autumn or can you just not wait until it's acceptable to make your home festive?

A Little DVF Surprise...

Friday, 14 November 2014 ·

I completely forgot I even had these pictures so apologies for posting this so late (fingers crossed my next box should here soon)! So, for the second My Little Box, they really outdid themselves by partnering up with the one and only Diane von Furstenburg!

The first thing that always strikes me with My Little Box is the beautiful artwork, I just can't get enough of it! In fact it was the inspiration I needed to finally get started on a gallery wall in my living room, although currently everything is just blu-tacked up as I don't want to make lots of nail holes in the wall (the joy of living in a rented flat). 

So once I'd finally undone the cute little bow and stopped gawping at the beautiful postcard I finally got to delve in and see what the real goodies were for October...
Unsurprisingly the focus of this DVF box was much more beauty/fashion focussed than lifestyle but I certainly wasn't complaining. First up, and in my opinion the most excited was a monochrome print DVF scarf - not your usual beauty box goody, am I right? I've worn this a bunch since I got it as it goes with everything and is ideal for throwing on if you're going out for drinks in the evening. There was also a super cute lips brooch which I think will be a cute way to add a little pop of colour to an outfit during winter. 
Onto the beauty portion of the box, but before I jump into the real goodies I have to point out how much I love getting these little draw string bags each month - they're perfect for storing little bits and pieces in my drawers or for packing jewellery for travelling!

But anyway into the real stuff! Each month there's always something from the My Little Beauty line which I think is a really nice touch and this month it was the micellair water. I haven't tried this but but I love a micellair water so I've got high hopes. I mentioned in a recent post how much I love L'Occitane hand cream so I was over the moon when I pulled this out of the bag, it's the perfect size for in my handbag! Last but not least was a travel size Kerastase Laque Couture hairspray.

All in all My Little Box have put together yet another winning box which ticks all the boxes for me and keeps me excited for the arrival of the next box. The only problem is I have to wait a whole month for it to arrive! With Christmas fast approaching, a subscription to My Little Box would make the perfect gift for any girl in your life (or even just a little treat for yourself)!

Autumn Luxe: Beauty

Tuesday, 11 November 2014 ·

The turn of the seasons from summer to autumn is always the time of year when I have a root through my make up stash and mix things up a bit and, more often than not, I'll also decide there are also some things that I'm missing for the coming months that I can't possibly cope without.

In all honesty I can be quite lazy with my make up, I tend to get stuck into a routine and very rarely do i stray from it and for that reason I don't like to spend a fortune on non-essential make up. So personally I love the Sleek eyeshadow palettes as the quality is fantastic and the colour range spot on. The Oh So Special Palette looks perfect for autumn with a good range of warm, neutral shades as well as some richer colours like the plum perfect for a special occasion. Buy here

The wash bag has absolutely nothing to do with autumn but I just love the simple, elegant design with the pop of lime on the zip. Plus if you're going to be treating yourself to some new make up then you need something to put it in right? Buy here 

I'm addicted to nail varnish and definitely already have far too many (thanks to the Ciate advent calendar last year), but a dark forest green is something that's missing from my collection and I'll definitely be picking up Essie's Stylenomics next time I'm in Boots. Buy here
Now back down to the basics whose importance should never be underestimated. A permanent staple in my handbag and on my desk is a hand cream - how often I remember to apply said hand cream is another matter entirely but having it there in the first place is a start right? L'Occitane is my usual go to but this ginger & lime one sounds fantastic! Buy here

The Mint Julips lip scrub from Lush is yet another staple but this lives on my bedside table. I absolutely love this scrub, for a start it tastes divine (being made of sugar it's perfectly safe to lick off after use) and more importantly it's a coarse scrub without being too coarse. This is great for during the colder winter months when chapped lips are all too prevalent. Use this every night and you will have soft, smooth lips all year round. Buy here

Once your hands and lips are in perfect condition it's time to turn to your face, and this is where the Ren Glycolactic Radiance Renewal mask comes in. Fleur de Force raves about this mask which in all honesty is enough to sell it to me! But, not only that, a mask that claims to remove all the dead skin cells leaving your skin looking healthier and more radiant is a winner for me! Buy here

Last but not least, the perfect lip product for a lazy make up day. Burt's Bees make some of my favourite lip balms and this lip crayon has all the benefits of their lip balms but with the added benefit of beautiful colours and great colour payoff! I can't find anywhere that stocks this in the UK (sorry!) but if you find anywhere please let me know! 

What beauty products are on your autumn wish list or what can't you live without in these cold and dreary months?

Autumn Luxe: Fashion

Sunday, 9 November 2014 ·

With the seasons changing, albeit quite slowly here in London, it's time for me to start rooting out my jumpers and boots and get my winter wardrobe into shape before the cold weather really kicks in. Therefore this seemed the perfect opportunity to do a little online browsing and see what new additions might be making their way to my wardrobe soon... 
First up, jumpers, here in the UK these are probably the most important thing to have in your wardrobe (and an umbrella of course) as when it gets cold, it gets really cold. Personally, I already have far too many jumpers but I just can't stop so I know I'll be purchasing some more. The blue and cream on this one is perfect for me as I love some bright colours in winter and you could make this more dressy super easily! Buy here.

Now of course there was going to be a more festive jumper in here somewhere as it's a vital part of any winter wardrobe, am I right? But anyway, two cute little penguins, I think it's clear why this one stood out to me! Buy here

This skirt may not be 100% winter appropriate but all the colours caught my eye and the mirror detailing is absolutely beautiful. Pair it with a plain black t-shirt, black tights and booties and you're good to go! Buy here
A girl can never have too many shoes right? My shoe collection is far too big but, like my jumpers, it just keeps on growing...but look how pretty they are, it would be rude not to! 

These beautiful sequin pumps from Zara are a winner to add a bit of glam to the all black outfits I too frequently put together over the colder months. Buy here

Now, a pair of good quality heeled boots is something I actually need, well need might be pushing it but you know what I mean. I love the way the leather kind of dips down to the zip on this pair and the dark grey shade is something just a little bit different. Buy here
Last but not least, accessories - which are arguably the most fun part of any outfit. In winter, the most important thing to me is keeping warm and snuggly! 

A vital part of any winter wardrobe is a good bobble hat and I love the simplicity of this one with it's cute mohair bobble. This would be perfect for those cold blustery mornings waiting for the train or simply to cover up a bad hair day, do you think I could get away with wearing it indoors? Buy here

It's all too easy to let your clothing get a bit boring in the winter by sticking to neutral colours, jumpers and leggings so a good statement necklace is the perfect way to glam things up a bit. J Crew does the most fantastic jewellery and this is a great example and worth every penny. Buy here

When keeping your hands warm is so important a backpack is an ideal solution to keep your hands free to be kept hidden away in your coat pockets. Now don't get me wrong, practicality is always important but when you can disguise practicality in something so chic it's difficult to justify not buying this. Whistles really have hit the nail on the head with this beautiful wine coloured number! Buy here

Finally the scarf, considering I never go out without a scarf, there was never a doubt that one was going to appear somewhere in this post and I love this huge oversized one from ASOS. I first saw this on one of Fleur de Force's haul videos and have been in love ever since. Just my luck, it's currently out of stock but I'll be ordering it the second it becomes available! Buy here

What are your autumn fashion must haves?

The Best of Pinterest: Interiors

Friday, 7 November 2014 ·

I've had an ongoing love affair with Pinterest for quite some time now but, like any love affair, it has it's ups and downs which is only to be expected. Now recently has been rather a long 'down' but that all changed this weekend when I felt the need for a little inspiration in the home department and I turned to my old friend Pinterest and now my only question is, why did I ever turn my back on it? 

1. How beautiful is the floral detailing on the side of these drawers? I love an opportunity to give an old, tired piece of furniture a new lease of life but my usual method is just to give it a lick of fresh paint and new handles (click here to see my latest project). This is such a great way of adding a little finishing touch and another pop of colour, especially if everything else is quite minimal. I can't wait to try this out on the chest of drawers I've been avoiding working on. Source

2. I love this concept of incorporating your bedside lamp into part of your bedside table and the open fronted boxes looks super chic with the little ornaments and the lamp stand running through them. Not sure it would work considering the amount of clutter that accumulates in my bedside drawers but maybe in a guest bedroom? Source

3. My obsession with 'mood lighting' is pretty much never ending, I have more candles than you could ever imagine and I'm always looking for cute fairy lights. I've often looked at decorative bird cages in homeware shops and not known what I'd do with one but maybe I'll try this! Source
4. This pin pretty much sums up my dream living room, all it needs is a cat snuggled up in amongst the cushions! The colour scheme of muted greys and creams is pretty much perfection, I might just throw in the odd mustard yellow cushion for a bit of variety! Source

5. With all the huge, bare white walls in my flat I've become obsessed with the idea of a gallery wall and I love the use of a picture rail and overlapping the pictures here! Source

The Ultimate Luxury Candle

Wednesday, 5 November 2014 ·

After months of lusting after a Diptyque candle, and many trips to John Lewis just to look at how beautiful they are and try and decide which one I'd buy, if I could ever part with £40 on a candle, I finally decided it was time to treat myself with some of my birthday money and here it is... 

I know, I know, £40 on a candle may seem to many people to be completely insane but I'd been debating this for a long time and kept coming back to it whenever I wanted a new candle so it seemed like I was destined to have one (yep I said it, destined- any way to justify it right?) 

So on a cold and blustering Friday evening I popped into Liberty (which by the way is my favourite shop in London) and headed straight to the little Diptyque section...well after a minor detour upstairs to the Christmas department (I just couldn't resist). It took far too long for me to finally make a decision about which one I wanted and I think by the end of it my nose had gone numb to any smells but we got there eventually! 

As this was such a splurge for me I wanted a candle that, potentially, could last a long long time of only being burnt occassionally so I settled on a scent suitable for any time of year, Gardenia. As you can probably guess it's a very floral scent but it's absolutely beautiful. It's been sitting on my bedside table since I got it, the first time I lit it was actually for these photos, but despite it not being lit my room is still filled with the most fantastic, rich scent of flowers and I am loving it. 

So, although this may be a huge amount to pay for a candle, the scent payoff is incredible even when the candle's not lit, obviously it looks great when it's lit, and to be honest I really love the jar and I know I'll put it to good use when the candle is finally finished. Let's just hope I don't get sucked into Diptyque perfumes next... 

If you haven't smelt any of the Diptyque candles I highly recommend it next time your somewhere that stocks them as there are some very unusual scents, including Feu de Bois which smells just like a crackling wood fire and I know would be my mum's favourite! 

Lazy Sunday Routine

Sunday, 2 November 2014 ·

I love Sunday's as you need no excuse to do absolutely nothing, although having said that I always find that they go far too fast - is that just me? But anyway, Sunday is my favourite day of the week so I thought I'd share a little insight into what I like to get up to...

Typically I really struggle to sleep in at the weekends so I tend to just laze in bed for an hour (or 2...or 3...) before crawling out of my little duvet den! Usually I read my book in bed but inevitably I get distracted by Twitter, Instagram etc. 

When Matthew and I are both up and about is the point that the day begins to revolve around food starting with some form of cooked breakfast, whether that be bacon and hash browns or homemade pancakes - Sunday is NOT the day for a healthy breakfast in my books! 

Now is time for something a little more productive (until I get sucked in to playing on the PlayStation - yes that's right people I love a little bit of PlayStation) so I try and get the flat looking spotless as it makes the start of the week so much more bearable so out come the sexy rubber gloves! I'll also usually do some blog stuff, mainly taking photos because now the days are so short I pretty much can't take any in the week as I have no natural light when I'm home... :( 

Throughout all of this I'll probably be snacking away as I have pretty much no self control but one of my favourite lazy Sunday lunches is some crusty French bread, baked Camembert, pâté etc! It's very rare that I can be bothered to cook a full roast lunch although I do love them!

After this exhausting day... it's time for a long hot bath whilst I read my book. After which the only option is to snuggle up on the sofa in my new fluffy dressing gown and watch a film - I think 'Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom' is on the cards this evening. 

Despite not doing a huge amount I really do love Sundays although there's always that bittersweet feeling as that gloomy Monday morning is looming over my shoulder!

What do you guys get up to on a Sunday??
