Photo of the week: Brightening weather makes me fill my flat with flowers. I've had to empty out all the jugs and bottles and fill them with daffodils. Bright vibes!
1. Visions of spring
I always forget how much I love bulb flowers. Crocuses, snowdrops, bluebells and daffodils. All some of my beautiful, beautiful favourites and don't they just sing spring? Below is a picture of my quite gorgeous green campus. I love these visions of spring, they make me feel energised.
Last week I was rabbiting on about the Oscars. Well I managed to stay up until 5am (YES 5AM!!!) to catch it all, with only a small nap in between. I was pretty impressed with myself and my efforts were all made worth it to see 12 Years a Slave take away Best Picture (woohoo Steve McQueen!), but there was another highlight. Did you see John Travolta introduce the incredible Idina Menzel? He was giving such a brilliant introduction and then it slipped out, "... the one and only, Adele Azeem". ADELE AZEEM?! That's not even close, John. I rolled around laughing (it was possibly made funnier but sleep deprivation) and happily now you can have your own name 'Travoltified' using this widget. Hey there, I'm Laurie Hazeems!
3. 10 painfully obvious truths everyone forgets too soon
I saw this over on Shutterbean earlier this week and couldn't get this list out of my head for a while. I find it really helpful to read articles like this sometimes to de-clutter my head and prioritise what is really important. Everyone gets so caught up in the importance of 'business' that what is really important is lost (number 3 speaks to me!). Even as I type the last part of that sentence it actually occurs to me that every point on this list is relevant to me, and probably to most people. It is well worth a read for some perspective and potential head clearing.
4. New LLK Scheduling
I'm not sure if this belongs in a loves post, although I am very excited to share this with you. You already know that I've started up my own YouTube channel, but now finally LLK and Lottie's Little Vlogs and becoming thoroughly integrated - hurrah! This means a little change to the current schedule at LLK. I will now be posting a condensed Lottie Loves on a Friday as I will be sharing video content at the weekend, on either a Saturday or Sunday. I will be continuing to post my normal food/lifestyle posts on a Wednesday though, that's staying put. So more content will be coming your way, I'm very excited! If you want to check out this weeks video you can do so below - I attempt to make a gluten free pizza in the quest to discover if it's actually any good...
Here in the UK we've had a pretty lovely Sunday. The weather has been rather beautiful with the sun shining and a warm breeze for the first time in months. I even heard some wild rumours of 20c! I hope you had a wonderful day and enjoyed our first taste of the summer months. Oh and for any non-brits reading - we have to seize every sunny and potentially summery opportunity, even if it is still only March 9th... Who knows when we might get another?!
Happy Sunday, friends! x
