Lovely Things April 2016

It’s been a while since I’ve posted but I’m back just in time to legitimately still be talking about April in the ‘Lovely Things April 2016’ edition. As regards my absence I can only give the excuse of life! It just happened! Nothing major, but my sister and I spent one week putting down some flooring, then the next was spent working and packing, then the next on a lovely holiday! (More on that later!) Among all that I still had time to notice a few things this month that I though might be interesting…

Under the Greenwood Tree

I start once again with a song! On this occasion it is ‘Under the Greenwood tree’ –  written by William Shakespeare for his play ‘As You Like It’ but arranged and sung by Laura Marling. I only found this song by watching the amazing ‘Shakespeare Live from the RSC‘ on BBC2 a week ago. In that show it was sung by The Shires – another new revelation to me! – their version was absolutely stunning and you can hear it here. It’s well worth listening to!


Getting Fit

After the indulgences on Holiday I definitely feel the need to pull back a bit and start changing up my lifestyle. I’ve been feeling the need to change for quite a few months now and I think now is the time to start taking steps in a healthy direction. I want to get exercising and eating good wholesome food and I’ve been really inspired by reading lots of blogs and following people on instagram. One thing I’ve noticed is that pretty work out gear helps!!! I find this editorial, shot by Julia Galdo, a good motivation to get moving, especially if I can find some pieces as nice as these from Asics

Speaking of Julia Galdo, I love this shot from a Clinique campaign she did…

Love From Cyprus

May has brought with it sunshine and an abundance of greenery to Kent and you can feel Summer is not too far away. With that in mind I’ve been looking at getting some new sandals this year and have found myself on Etsy and more specifically ‘Love From Cyprus‘. The sandals – and other items – are all hand crafted in Cyprus and have a quality and style that I love. I also love that you can get them in a variety of colours so there are lots of options to choose from. Here are some of my favorites…

Magic

I shall end on another musical note from The Shires. This is their beautiful cover of Coldplay’s ‘Magic’. I hope you all have a wonderful May and I’ll be back soon…
