In Seven Days Around The Web #43

Excuse the slight delay of this post - my weekend has been rather relaxing and I've been as far away from technology as possible! While yesterday was spent at my granddad's 80th birthday celebrations, today was an altogether more relaxing affair: After a delicious breakfast, my sister and I went for a long run through the nearby park and then I indulged in a hot bath in my parents' newly refurbished bathroom. Oh the joy of bath tubs!

Tomorrow, my boyfriend and I will make our way to the UK. After arriving in London at about 7am, we'll spend the day buying last minute gifts and treating ourselves to some good food. A trip to Liberty and Dover Street Market will definitely be on the cards and, who knows, I might actually buy myself a few gifts, too!

  • Ari of Primer & Lacquer is currently in the US - here is her travel beauty bag.
  • Grace of That Grace Girl shares her thoughts on blogging and bloggers. A really insightful read which sheds a light on many issues (authenticity, sponsoring, writing skills,...). I'm a fan of Grace's writing and her blog is so great!

This heart-wrenching video on The Ellen Show with the brave Jacqui of Baby Boy Bakery has made me shed a few tears!

A great documentary about the Union Glacier in the Antarctica. 

That's it for now - I hope you all have the best Christmas!
