Good morning and Happy Sunday! I hope your weekend has been full of sunshine and laughter. We pottered at home on Saturday; Mr CC cut the grass (it was long overdue) while I did some household jobs and a bit of blogging. I've joined Gemma's six month long free-to-flourish Inner Circle and the welcome pack winged its way into my inbox on Saturday morning; a motivating start to the weekend. It's free to join, so head over here to sign up before the official start on the 26th. While you're browsing, here's a round-up of everything you should read, eat and do from this week...
With weather as beautiful as the spring we've had so far, who needs to venture abroad? Plan a staycation, or head over here for tips on how to make the best of a homecation.
If you're looking for more reasons to stay in Britain this year, then Sophie's photos of spring-time glow are sure to convince you. I really must go and visit Norfolk soon.
Had a rough week? You need these 35 reasons to be happy.
If you've indulged a bit too much this week, try Lucy's recipe for turkey meatballs and courgette spaghetti. A spiralizer is now top of my wish list.
On the other end of the spectrum, this white chocolate tiffin from Sarah is the perfect accompaniment for your afternoon cup of tea. Decadent and delicious!
Improving my photography skills is something I've been trying to focus on for a while, so this post on composition and negative space has been most helpful.
If you're in need of a little relaxation (and really, who isn't?), then try this spring flower bath soak and facial steam. Anything with dried flowers has got my vote.
