Lazy Friday disclaimer - the above photo was taken on my iPhone, but I couldn't imagine not using a picture of anything but the BEAUTIMOUS weather we have been having lately! Honestly, since Easter Sunday England has been doing. it. RIGHT. And as you can tell from the enthusiasm in these first few sentences, it has had an amazing effect on me. I find myself waiting to sit in traffic every day, because each session is like a little top-up of vitamin D - it's almost like being out in the garden sunbathing! Almost...

This week hasn't actually been the easiest - some personal stuff and just a general Easter hangover has meant the week dragged by, BUT on the plus side, I am back into the gym! I did a class today which was awesome (but I am going to be SO sore tomorrow), and I've been loving my 30 Days of Yoga as always, even though it's almost at its conclusion! I honestly think I'm just going to keep going - the benefits are just so worth it. If you guys want me to do a more detailed post about my approach/experience with it, just shout!

Now that my beloved Friday is here, let's hop to the real good stuff, shall we?

Rosie (The Londoner) has been putting out the most beautiful photos from her and her mum's trip to the Maldives. I'm not going to lie, I would love to be able to whisk my mum away on an adventure like this! For now, she's going to have to settle for afternoon tea at Fortnum and Mason's. I'M SORRY I'M SUCH A DISAPPOINTMENT, MUM.

Lemon meringue pie is my absolute fave, so this recipe on Maddy's blog was an instant-save.

Whilst I haven't *strictly* stuck to this in April, I love this 30 Day Challenge of switching off before 9 from The Everygirl. Working in social media, I spend my entire day looking at devices, both for myself and for work. Spending Easter weekend away from it was so relaxing and freeing. More of that, please.

Sofia's blog Pale Lily is relatively new to me, but I'm loving it. Her recipe for a banana pudding breakfast parfait looks all kinds of awesome.

I find everything Jen is doing right now totally inspiring, but her post on slow blogging really spoke to me. This mindfulness about why and what we cultivate in our space on the Internet is an important conversation and one I think we all need to have with ourselves if we want to blog sustainably moving forward.

Of all of the Ed Milliband vines, this is my favourite.

J and I have a new vice. This is it. It is a devious, naughty little thing. It is perfect to share. It has to be ignored 99% of the time. Sobs.

I hope you guys have had a sun-filled week and that you enjoy an energised weekend. See you on Sunday for a new video!
