    I’ve got the longest weekend ever at work, but hopefully I might squeeze in one or two of these on Sunday morning. I REALLY want to go on a hike soon, and I love the idea of going early and capturing the sunrise. Maybe now’s the time to try it

  • Great list – love doing a lot of the things on this list, to be honest, and I’ll be referring back to this for my self-care moments! x http://www.aimeeraindropwrites.co.uk x

  • What a perfect list! I don’t know about binging on a NEW series, but I love re watching old ones! I’m patiently waiting the arrival of my baby (lol this sounds so surreal) so I think I’ll take it easy and try some nail art haha! x

  • This is such a great collection of ideas, this weekend I baked for the first time in years – it was a massive fail but it was so fun and great change! X

  • I love these ideas so much! ^_^ I didn’t do any of them the weekend but I have 2 weeks off work so I’m sure I can do most of these throughout that time.

    I’ve already started reading a new manga series and continued reading another one. ^_^ As boring as it sounds I’ve also been doing some deep cleaning in my kitchen. YAWN MUCH. 😛
