Pampering. Relaxing. Taking it easy.
For all the busy-ness of London, I am a seasoned pro at chilling out.
I love to block out an hour, an evening, a day, or even a whole weekend to take some time to relax and step back.
Favourite things include:
A long hot bath, preferably while reading a trashy novel or a glossy magazine (Tatler, Grazia, Us Weekly…the bath is no place for cerebral reads!).
A steaming cup of herbal tea and a fun TV programme.
An afternoon in bed with a good book.
A PJ day, full of reading, writing, napping, and far too much Pinterest.
A good haircut.
A girly brunch – huevos rancheros at Giraffe, pancakes and decadence at The Breakfast Club, fruit and coffee chez moi.
Getting my pile of stationery and writing some cards. I love post and mail!
A good long walk – whether in the sunshine, being whipped by the wind, or getting soaked puddle-jumping, it’s always a treat!
I must schedule all of these….soon!
