#1 Get stuck on the machines
Seriously, this happens, like, all the time. I'm just not built to operate heavy machinery. And, it always seems to happen with the most embarrasing machines (last Tuesday it was the inner/outer thigh machine...you know the one, where it looks like those stirrups you have to get into at the Doctors for tests).

Over Christmas (which now seems about three years ago) I tried out some little mini beauts from Soap & Glory. Now, I love a mini, you can slip it in your handbag for any of those dire beauty emergences (dry hands in winter etc.) and pack them for weekend breaks away (I have to take the regularly-sized bottles when I go on holiday, because I'm one of those people who will get through a tub of body butter in, like, three days max). Top of my list from this gift set? I totally fell in love with the Hand Food. Thick, creamy and oh-so-moisturising this felt like a gift to my hands. I also loved the super adorbs pot of The Righteous Butter - again, so moisturising! Perfect for this type of weather which feels like it's literally drying your skin out #arrgghhhh. I'd definitely recommend these gorgeous minis - and they'd make the perfect girly gift too!

I took a couple of these shots yesterday just sitting in my car. The light was golden and low, and I loved the way it played with my face and made odd reflections and highlights. This really inspired me for this week's MID-WEEK MOMENT...

#1 For heavens sake just eat a doughnut.
#2 By watching the Leonardo DiCaprio eye-roll/side-eye/eyebrow-raise from the Golden Globes 2016...*coming throughhhh!!!!*
#3 By buying either of the below. What? Everyone needs an Inflatable Flamingo Drinks Holder, £15 from Oliver Bonas (arriving March). It's a FLAMINGO. And, it means you can drink mojitos while you float. In regards to the other two? Melon diaries are so in (this Watermelon Journal's from Mira Mira, £9.08), and it's time to throw some shapes to the music that comes out of these amazing KSL LIVING Amplificateur de son aulos, from £166, from KSL LIVING, regardless of whether said moves are bad, really bad, or just down-right terrible.
#4 Do a little bit (OR LIKE LOADS) of shopping, AND stop for champagne. But don't do shopping tipsy...as (trust me) this can go very wrong: 'OMG OMG SHOES!!! in the sale? in a size 3? (I'm a size 7 and a half)...YES! yes! I'll HAVE them!'. And, for the good of your wardrobe, maybe try and sell some of your old stuff on ebay or Depop? Just so, you know, you don't DROWN in clothes...#justsaying
...and do it with FRIENDS...(actual friends, not imaginary Minions)
#5 Book a holiday so you can wear this (White one-piece, New Look #SS16), and top up the old tan (or in my case, try and create something resembling a tan). If you can't afford it yet (again, like me) don the bikini in your living room and turn up the heating. Needs must.

After being mesmerised by the beautiful, VIBRANT #SS16 collection from Bora Aksu, I now can't stop thinking about summer (especially when it's pouring with rain outside). Showcasing a glorious line inclusive of everything from DREAMY sheer fabrics in a ballet palette to show-stopping colour in crochet - it's a definite #inspo no-brainer when it comes to thinking about your new season wardrobe AND your home. Don't worry, I'm still VERY obsessed with marble, but these fabulous hues will work perfectly against it's creamy, minimalist lines...
