In following with my New Year's resolution, I dedicated today to rest and relaxation. Here's what I spent 'Emily day' doing:
-slept in, didn't set an alarm
-ate waffles for breakfast (a treat I haven't had in years)
-watched four episodes of Arrested Development, which I have only recently discovered!
-started to feel guilty/antsy about my relaxing and checked e-mails and washed the floors
-indulged in Terry's orange chocolate wedges (my favourite sweet)
-watched I Don't Know How She Does It starring SJP and Pierce Brosnan (yum!)
-gave myself a plum coloured manicure
-had a lengthy telephone conversation with my Mum
- & finally made these veggie tacos for dinner
Even on my days of relaxation, my 'type A' personality shines through so I made this list for a sense of accomplishment. Ah well I guess some things never change, even on Emily day!
|I'm linking up to Silverstyle's Trending Through the Decades: Layering edition. I layered a scarf over a jacket over a dress over tights- that counts right?|
My outfits this week have been overflowing with colour, a tactic I use to trick my body into thinking it's sunny and warm outside!
I hope everyone has a great weekend- I will be staffing Lilac Lingerie's booth at the Wedding Palace Show- I'm looking forward to chatting with brides-to-be!
P.S. Go on- give yourself permission to dedicate a few hours or a full day to yourself and what you enjoy doing-you know you want to!
