Hope you have a wonderful end of 2018 and a great start to 2019 this week! I am on holiday at the moment in America and will resume usual blog posts and email newsletters next week. You can check out my 'A Netflix Xmas' post from last week in the meantime if you haven't already.
Netflix really have amped up their game in regards to how many original films and series they are releasing. They are very well-made also and there are plenty to choose from. I love a good Christmas movie (the cheesier the better) and have already watched as many as I can in the lead up to Christmas. I am going to cover some of my favourites in this blog post, hope you check some of them out!
I'm currently self-employed and primarily work for two companies in particular. One of these is a canvas and fine art printers and Christmas is definitely the busiest time of year for us. We are in our final week now of orders before the cut-off passes and we close until January. I am keeping this blog post short and sweet and will be back to regular posts and email newsletters from next week onwards.
I recently subscribed to Gousto which is a food delivery service. They portion all of the ingredients you need to prepare and cook delicious meals from their website/app. This results in no food waste and they are super quick to make as well (my meals only took half an hour each). I will be talking about my meals and the Gousto box service in this post!
So on Monday I was massively surprised when mum and Mark came home with a puppy. I was in my bedroom and was watching The Ellen Show after work as I heard the pattering of paws on my floor. Bailey is the newest addition to our family and he is so adorable! He is a Golden Labrador and is eleven weeks old (this Saturday).
I visited London last week from 11th to 14th October to visit my friend Jade and watch Michael McIntyre's Big World Tour show in the O2. I travelled to London Paddington on Thursday morning by train and got there early afternoon. We stayed in a hotel near Lancaster Gate and Kensington Gardens / Hyde Park and had a lovely stay.
This week Deliciously Ella released The Plant Based Cookbook. I pre-ordered it and mine actually arrived Wednesday, a day before the official release. I am really inspired to cook more plant based meals now from receiving these amazing recipes and along with her YouTube channel, app and podcast I've definitely had an overload (in a good way) of Deliciously Ella this week!
This week is quite a simple post as I have been relaxing on weekends as of late. I have lots of work on during the week and I have allocated the weekends to spending some time to unplug and rest so that I can begin the next week refreshed! So far this is going really well and I am enjoying having a couple of days to myself every week. It has meant that the workload Monday to Friday has increased but I have found new ways to cope with this which I've covered in this post.
