Five Happy Things

Friday, April 11, 2014

This has been a rather busy week with lots going on, but not an awful lot being achieved! Although I managed to conduct some much needed closet management, giving away a large sackful of clothes to a local charity. Now I have a little space I can add a few key spring pieces...anything nautical, floral and pastel here I come! 

These are my favourite things which have made me happy this week...
Beautiful pink cherry blossom
The Royal visit to New Zealand has been fantastic so far, with stunning outfits from everyone, but especially the Duchess of Cambridge. When the fresh faced Royal family arrived in Wellington, Catherine was resplendent in a Catherine Walker dress and coat with a Gina Foster Seaford pillbox hat to complete the beautiful ensemble
My first sighting of a Red Admiral butterfly this year 
I smelt these three-cornered leeks before I even saw them! They are a member of the onion and garlic family, sharing the same fragrance and flavour. They are delicious in omelettes, salads and pesto

I love Fleetwood Mac, yet cover versions of their fantastic songs are usually a bit of a sacrilige, but this cover by Dana Williams and Leighton Meester is absolutely beautiful

What has made you happy this week?
