Weekend Wrap Up

a welcome distraction


A Welcome Distraction


Hi! Hope everyone’s doing OK!

To those of you who have messaged me they’re glad I’ve kept up the blog, saying this gives you a sense of normalcy, I promise you – writing this blog everyday probably helps me even more!

I’m pretty sure I’ve responded to everyone personally, but if for some reason I missed your email or DM…

Please know, honestly, I can’t thank you enough for your continued support!

Other than that, I’ve got very little to say about current events that hasn’t been said already.

So, I guess I’ll just get straight to the links which I’m hoping will bring you a little joy, a welcome distraction from the endless bleak news.






This post on the foods Pinch of Yum is currently stocking up on is extremely helpful.


Just finished watching Emma. LOVED this movie!


Going to watch Tiger King on Netflix next.


A super easy flank steak recipe,this was a big hit with the family at dinner the other night.


Work from home outfit ideas.


Recently found myself taking more baths. Very into these Epsom salts.





If you haven’t heard of The Social Distant Project, it’s a creative new site raising funds right now.


I’m SO glad you guys are loving this banana bread recipe!


We have at least two weighted blankets in the house – and we’re using them a lot. Highly recommend!


Why walking outside benefits the brain.


Another beautiful white paint option to consider.

    Sooo, the weighted blanket thing…I don’t like tight covers, make me feel smothered and I get very uncomfortable when the cats sleep on me, so what’s so great about these blankets?

      They feel like a warm hug, but I get that they might not be for everyone.
