Weekend Wear

My lazy, lazy weekend uniform: jeans, a t-shirt, and a cardigan.

I’ve actually had a bit of a stressful week – with more to come! – so it was nice to have a relaxed few days at home.

Saturday morning I was invited by Erin at Take Off Skin & Body to come in and sample their Pure Radiance Facial.




I’ve never had a facial before, so I wasn’t sure quite what to expect, but the therapist was wonderfully calm and relaxing. She walked me through the benefits of each of the products that she was using, and part of the service was a luxurious shoulder and neck massage that worked out the kinks and knots of stress that I’ve been carrying for the last few months.

I floated home, sat down on the couch, and promptly fell asleep for five hours. (I must have really needed it)

Saturday evening I indulged in a little of what Carly Findlay calls “Procrastibaking” and made the very excellent chocolate buttermilk cake from A Beautiful Mess, but this morning I decided I really needed to get off my lazy butt and start getting ready for my Next Big Adventure.

See how I just slipped that in there?

It’s hard to believe it’s true, but in two weeks time I’ll be flying out to New York to spend Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year with The Sophisticate. Hurrah! It’s been a long, long, loooong five months since I last saw him in June.

Before then though I have to pack up the house (again) and put stuff into storage (again) and I decided another eBay sale would have a good two-fold effect. One: I’d have less to put into storage, and two: I’d have a little bit of spending money over the Christmas period while I won’t be earning any money.

  1. Good luck with your ebay sale and next move. You look lovely as usual but tired. Enjoy NY and I hope things settle for you really soon.

  2. Oh my GOODNESS! I’m in Ohio, which is about a 1 hour flight from NYC! So I am ridiculously excited that you’ll be that close to me! It will be COLD, so I’m sorry yr skipping summer to go back to winter, but I’m so happy you will get such a nice long stretch of together with The Sophisticate! Boy oh boy, I am so excited for you! & even in casual clothes, you always look so cute & put together.

  3. Your blog is deadly for my budget…bespoke boots from The Boot Makers (adore my pair!), tights from Sonsee…and now your sale on ebay. 🙂 Have a fabulous holiday in the States.

  4. Way to make the rest of us look sloppy if this is your “lazy weekend uniform”! You still look fantastic, as always..

    Best of luck with your eBay adventure. I always adore your outfits and so this may be a killer on my bank account! Have a fantastic trip to NYC, goodness knows it’s about time and much needed for you both.

  5. Looking lovely as ever, Lilli! The colours in the top really suit you 🙂

    Good luck with your eBay sale. You’ve inspired me to have another one myself. It is just so hard to find the time to take the photos with a 1 year old running round the house!

    So pleased to hear you will be having some quality time with the Sophisticate soon – & what a wonderful time to be in NY. Enjoy!

  6. Cannot imagine how excited you must be to be seeing the sophisticate again and another exciting NY adventure!!
    I love the uniqlo top- can’t wait for it to open here, so loved it in the UK!

  7. I do admire your determination to sell clothes you’ve bought not that long ago! It always takes me ages to make that move…
    Wish me luck on the multicolored print dress from igigi!
    (And sooo jealous you’ll get to see NYC all dressed up for the festive season…)

  8. So pleased to hear you’re going to be reunited with the Sophisticate for a few months (at least)! Hope all goes well with the packing, storing and travelling!
