3 Things That Made My Weekend Awesome (Besides Staying in Bed All Day)


Hey. How was your weekend? I had a fantastic one ... doing virtually nothing. I stayed in bed nearly all day on Saturday (which only felt icky when I tried to get back to sleep that night before vowing to NEVER have a "duvet day" again) but was a little more active on Sunday when I took an amazing, rejuvenating Vinyasa flow class at a fantastic new yoga studio I discovered that's not too far from me. I'm trying to slowly build back the strong, advanced Vinyasa practice I once had and it is so nice to be back on the mat again at a friendly, encouraging studio.


On Friday night, I stopped by Stylist Live with my friend Erin, where we heard Yotam Ottolenghi and the head chef of NOPI (one of my favorite restaurants in London!), Ramael Scully, talk about food trends and the inspiration behind the recipes in their new book, NOPI (which I really want for Christmas! Hint hint ...). It was super fun and interesting. We spent the rest of the night catching up and, erm, shopping. I picked up this sweet pack of notecards from Freya Art & Design plus an initial bangle from Whistle & Bango which is going to be delivered this week - oh, and a gorgeous lampshade that I can't wait to share with you!


Last weekend, our sofa bed from Heal's was delivered and it turns out that my YONDER Pom Pom blanket and cushion looks great on it. So, I kicked back on the couch with a cup of coffee and flipped through my stack of interiors magazines. Don't forget: you can still get 15% off the Pom Pom blanket and cushion range with the code ANGLOYANKxYONDER until October 30th. Shop them here.

We also finally ordered our curtains, which are being fitted soon so - no more living in a fish bowl (upstairs) or living with bad curtains (downstairs)!

So much excitement. So much to look forward to.

I hope you have a terrific week!

  5. I'm a huge fan of Vinyasa yoga too, although I haven't practiced in a while. I'll have to check out the yoga studios near me!

    1. It's my favorite style to practice, Courtney! I've tried Ashtanga and others but always go back to Vinyasa.

  9. Ah, I love your pom pom cushion and blanket! What cosy accessories to snuggle up with.

    I have a love/hate relationship with duvet days, but I do think they're required occasionally - sometimes they're the only way to really recharge your batteries!

    p.s. glad to read I'm not the only one who has already started thinking about Christmas presents - I saw the new illustrated Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone in Waterstones on Friday and I instantly added it to my wishlist!

  11. Despite their tendency to interrupt the next day, sometimes I think your soul needs a duvet day. Just once in a while...

    1. SO late in replying to this but ... I could have a duvet day at least once a week, I think!
