How is it June already!? I honestly feel like May rushed by so quickly. Maybe that’s because we went on a Southern California road trip at the beginning of the month – since we got back I feel like the last few weeks have vanished into thin air.
Nevertheless, there are plenty of Little Things that made May a good’un, disastrous baking attempts aside…
Blogging about: A delightfully OTT outfit and lomography shots from Palm Springs. In May this blog got a little refresh and I’m so happy with how it’s turned out. My old theme was only ever supposed to be a place holder after my site got hacked a couple of years ago, so I’m glad it has a little personality back now.
Watching: How To Get Away With Murder and Scandal – I’m on the final season of the latter and have just watched the crossover episodes. I know both have jumped the shark a little, but I don’t care. Also, M and I finally started watching the second season of The Handmaid’s Tale this month. Predictably it is both horrifying and depressing viewing, but gripping nevertheless.
Making: Plans for a weekend away in Guerneville next weekend, with our friends R & C.
Buying: Not very much, after April’s escapades in Palm Springs and Seattle, plus our SoCal road trip!
Reading: A collection of essays by Zadie Smith, and Sing, Unburied, Sing by Jesmyn Ward.
Listening to: Running playlists that feature pop, lady anthems (such as Bey’s Run the World) and the like. Also enjoying the Fashion Unzipped podcast by the Daily Telegraph.
Wearing: Impractical shoes the Little Mermaid would approve of.
Eating: Buddha bowls and leftover cookie dough. I tried making Alison Roman’s break-the-internet salted choc chip cookies but something went very wrong, so I was left with half a batch of cookie dough to eat. Awful situation, right!?
Enjoying: A Memorial Day bike ride in Sonoma with two of our good friends – somehow all four of us and our bikes managed to squeeze into one car for the two hour drive. Totally worth it for cycling alongside vineyards under bright blue skies. We managed just over 28 miles before we traded cycling for sandwiches and wine tasting.
Looking forward to: Trying climbing again. I recently went for the first time in a long while, and after several bouts of fear stopping me from ascending even the most basic wall, I ended up completing three climbs. I don’t want to loose the momentum, so hopefully I can squeeze in another session this month.
