A New Week: 10 Simple Things

Another week has rolled around again & my little fins are flapping helplessly to keep up! I literately have NO idea where this Summer has flown to but I'm in fervent denial that it is now officially the 1st of September. Absolutely madness...come back August you sneaky lil bugger! 

Alas, it's a new week & a brand spankin' new month which I'm raring to welcome so that it can bring with it some well & truly needed positive changes! I love this time of year as it always reminds me of the 'New Year, New Me' feeling everyone hankers after every January! The skies, fashion, times are all changing so I'm taking this opportunity to do some changing for myself as well! Optimism & intention are on point but I'll get back to you a bit later on the following through..! ;)

Anyway to keep up with the freshly launched Sunny Series, I behold my 10 simple things that have brightened my world in the past week...

1. Changing my bed sheets for crisp, freshly-washed, white Zara covers. Waking up all snuggly under my feather duvet & mountain of brightly coloured cushions is simply one of the best feelings ever! Simple but effective.

2. Seeing a gorgeous friend achieve a goal of hers that she's been reaching for for nearly 3 1/2 months. The light that sparkled in her eyes & the infectious joy that spread across her face when she told me was enough to flaw me into an utter state of awe & admiration. I totally felt like a proud 'ole mother on her daughter's graduation day. Such a silly sod.

3. Spoiling & surprising my brother James with breakfast in bed. What better way is there to show your appreciation for family love than a stonkin' stack of American pancakes on a lazy Sunday morning?! Su desayuno featured a pile of tumblin' fresh fruit, the usual culprits of lemon sugar & buttah, a pipin' dish of sweet syrup all washed down with a slurp of hulking strong coffee. Breakfast without a hit of caffeine is guaranteed to leave you in an utter state of despresso after all. C'mon, that's comedy gold for you there!

4. Indulging in some retail therapy. Nothing cures a downright crappy & tearful week better than fabulous new shoes, a new gorgeous pastel autumn coat & a lust-worthy slippy, silky rose-studded blouse. If that doesn't get your gnashers flashin' even for just an afternoon, then to break it to you nicely...you my friend are a lost cause. Tough love.

5. Listening to Jessie Ware's "Say you love me" & "Veins" by Palace in criminal amounts. Total chill out music to get out of that screaming head of yours. Love it.

6. Waving mama & papa Salmon off on their weekend in Padstow to celebrate their wedding anniversary with a car-jounrey treat box of freshly made Crumply peanut fudge slices. I couldn't quite pinpoint whether their cheesy grins were a result of (A.) The triumph of hitting 34 years (yikes) of putting up with each others' mugs (B.) Escaping away from my utterly charming and world-class company- though they'd be sobbing if that were the case, right? or (C.) The thought of chompin' their way through their terrifically filthy tub of naughty nibbles. If they could so kindly enlighten me upon their return...

7. Getting ants-in-your-pants excited for everything fall-related! I adore everything about this time of year apart from the inevitable drop in temperature. Highly inconvenient if you ask me & as worthy as waiting for rain in a drought, i.e. useless & disappointing. Fall always marks something magical for me: the earthy colours, the changing scenery of nature, the rotation & big reveal of coveted fashion trends as well as the irresistible want to start afresh & embrace change. A fresh start is sometimes well & truly needed.

8. Arriving home late on Tuesday evening in a right mardy tantrum mood to be greeted in the face with yet another bunch of delivered flowers! This time they were from Lucy - that girl is an utter saint & THE best friend a gal could hope for.
* From now on though guys I fully expect a new bouquet of beauties to graciously arrive each week so you better get a rota swingin' into action. This pampered princess has high expectation now...*

9. Chilling with my two brothers on Saturday night watching Captain America on the big screen. Nothing fancy-schmancy & no unnecessary effort was required. Just some crackin' action entertainment, comfy jammies on & some good old fashioned boy time. Puuurfect. Also, have you seen Scarlett Johansson's ass in this film? Good grief.

10. Deciding upon a big decision & change that I've been dancing around & pussy-footing about for yoooonks now. I'm decided to pull on my big girl pants & take the plunge to make it a reality this coming Thursday. Stay tuned for the big reveal mis amigos!

So what's made your tinker happy this week?
