Oh I am so excited because next week we are off to ‘PARADISE’!
Yep we are heading down south to Dunsborogh (aka paradise) for some sea air, wineries, coffee, cheese and just one great big massive chill out.
It’s been a long time coming, heck we needed a holiday as soon as we got back from the UK! But we are going to make this most of this break away in our favourite place, doing the things we love to do… aka eat and drink!
In particular I cannot wait to do another wine tour, the last one was a blast! As will the road trip down in general, you guys know I love a road trip! Will keep you all posted on Instagram though 🙂
But now it’s time for some Friday Favourites!
Favourite… Moment – Strawberry Picking
We missed out last year and I was determined not to miss the season this year! What better way to spend an hour than picking (and eating!) loads of strawberries in the sun. So relaxing!
Favourite… Feeling – Drinking a chilled glass of Bee Mead
I have found my drink for the summer! I have been wanting to try mead again (having not had it in years) and this bee mead with manuka honey is amazing. We also tried the honey and ginger one and oh boy was that good too.
Favourite… Purchase – Diffuser
We have been looking around for a diffuser for a while and when we spotted this one on sale we knew we had to buy it! It’s perfect, small and fills the whole room with gorgeous essential oils. It also changes colour if we fancy. (It’s buy Oil Garden Aromatherapy)
Favourite… Food/Drink – Frittata and salad from the Swan Valley Café
After picking strawberries in the valley we headed to our favourite little café. The frittata just jumped out at me that day and I’m so glad I did. Full of roasted veggies and served with 4, yes 4 different salads… so good! And it has inspired me to getting cooking frittatas again.
Updates – 5TTT + Episode 45 of the Chase the Red Grape Podcast
This weeks 5 top tips was inspired by my big yellow pineapple. The news this week has been sad, shocking and led to so much frustration – but my advice, be a pineapple. Did you know of it’s symbolic nature?
Episode 45 of the podcast looked at how we emotionally and physically respond to the changing climate. The world is changing faster than we are evolving… and it’s taking it’s toll on us too. Download now on iTunes and Stitcher or listen here on the website.
Favourite… Moment of training – Scaling right
This week I focused on scaling right. What was the aim of the workout? How could I complete it whilst keeping intensity high? Where could I push myself but not to the extreme? And I am glad to say that it worked… which has inspired me to continue. Taking responsibility for my training… check!
Weekend Plans – Saturday – Weekly shop, clean the car, food prep and chill. Sunday – Pancakes and newspapers, off for the opening of a new store Growers Lane (has a Whole Foods kinda vibe but all local) and podcasting!
Have a fab weekend folks!
Where are you going on your next holiday?
Do you like to go fruit picking?
How does the weather right now take it’s toll on you? (If we have a cold day here I feel rough!)
