At one point, I was quite content spending my Saturday mornings with a record playing and a stack of books to get through, but these days I’m all about making plans (and memories!)
I’ve had a bit of a shake-up recently and I’ve realised just how much I enjoy having a busy weekend packed full of fun and friends.
This particular Saturday, I rounded up the girls in an attempt to organise something spontaneous! We’d talked about doing a terrarium masterclass or a flower-arranging workshop, so I did a quick Google and phoned around.
Half an hour later and I was feeling disheartened, everywhere was booked out for weeks!
We threw some ideas around in the group chat and decided that if we couldn’t take part in a cute workshop, we’d bring the workshop to us!
All we needed was a good helping of blooms (easy when you live on a street with three florists!), an upbeat playlist filled with our fave songs, and some sustenance to keep us going; a delicious – and very pretty – breakfast!
Light and Free, who you may remember I worked with last summer, have recently partnered up with Spotify to reach out to those who live life to the fullest, and have music at their core. It’s an exciting way to give back to their audience, whilst also celebrating the magic that music brings!
They’ll be organising private gigs for a handful of lucky winners, so keep your eyes peeled here for more info, and remember to check out the competition below for more details. Exciting stuff!
I’m a ‘playlist for every occasion’ kinda girl; Gym time? I’ve got ya covered. Pamper night? Uh huh. Spontaneous flower-arranging-Saturday-morning-gal-hang? Look no further!
I feel like there have been SO many amazing new releases lately – from Paramore to Lorde, The Shins and even Harry freakin’ Styles! I padded it out with some throwback classics like Nelly Furtado and Blondie and a few current favourites of mine – Halsey and MisterWives. It went down a treat!
Within a few hours we were set! While we waited for Amy to arrive, Jen and I piled bowls high with Strawberry Light and Free yogurt, fresh berries and coconut chips – my favourite brekkie, and not only because it’s oh so Instagrammable.
Amy is always, always late (there’s one in every friend group, right?) so we took some time to get the stems ready and caught up on the goss. As usual, I was in fits of giggles throughout… just be glad those photos didn’t make the cut.
By the time Amy arrived, wearing the most adorbs outfit might I add, we had lined up vases in the living room so we could make a start.
The playlist was shuffling through old faves, and I was not one bit embarrassed about my kinda cheesy selection…
We spent hours sitting there crafting the prettiest of posies, perfecting our flower arranging skills and catching up.
The whole day was filled with shrieks of laughter (mainly from me), badass bowls of breakfast and beaut bouquets… it was such a spontaneous way to spend a day with my fave gals!
How do you spend a spontaneous Saturday?
