Upside down ‘M’s, books and a weekend full of chocolate

Ah I can barely believe that it’s actually no-tights weather. The Easter weekend has been really beautiful so far and I hope you’ve all been making the most of it! Lots of talk of Summer holidays are in the air with friends booking them here and there and I’m counting down the 2.5 months till I leave the UK to the more humid climes of HK. Have you guys got any lovely holidays booked?

Speaking of the warmer weather, I am itching to go shopping for a lighter Summer wardrobe. I can’t help but be inspired by all the florals, pastels and colour blocking that is everwhere at the moment.

Wardrobe colours

Yes, I do attempt to keep my clothes in colour order…

Earlier in the week I took my little sister shopping and she went ahead and found all the letters for her name at Urban Outfitters. I am always very jealous of people who can do that. Stores NEVER EVER have the letter ‘W’ and I always have to settle for an upside down ‘M’. See, maybe I really am destined to be ‘Minnie Winnie’ after all.


It’s funny how some things don’t suit you but they suit other people. I tried on these floral patterned oxfords from New Look and wasn’t sure about them. Becky ended up buying them and they’re so pretty on her!

I was so tempted to pick up one of these beautifully bound novels. I love it when classics are republished with beautiful covers. I do love a bit of Jane Eyre.

Pretty Books

I couldn’t help but buy a couple of books at Waterstones. They’re all great reads apart from maybe Cloud Atlas. After reading a few pages I’m not sure whether it’s my kind of book. I guess I’m glad that I bought it with an offer. Sometimes you know when books are destined to go to the charity shop but I’ll have to give it another go eventually. I should probably renew my library card!

Reading List

I love getting parcels from HK. Even if they’re not always for me, there’s something about receiving parcels from abroad and seeing the foreign stamps. When I was younger, I used to peel them off and stick them into notebooks.

Lastly, I hope you’ve all had a lovely long Easter weekend. I certainly will be spending the next few days stuffing my face with the yummy Easter eggs seen above. Yum! I can’t believe it’s a 3 day week next week and then another 4 day weekend in celebration of the Royal wedding. I guess I’ll watch a bit of it…will you guys be watching?
