I don’t know about you, but Saturday morning is my favourite time of the week. Not Friday night, as fun as it may be, and not Sunday noon, however tempting and enjoyable brunch time is. Nope, my happy time is Saturday morning, when it feels like infinite possibilities are at my feet for the rest of the weekend.
And I choose to spend my Saturday mornings very wisely indeed, checking off one or more (preferably all) of the items on my Saturday To Do List:
Make a delicious cup of coffee.
I’m a huge, huge fan of moka pots for brewing! I used to just boil coffee on the stovetop, but my fiance turned me on to this little gadget when we were in Barcelona. I had no idea what it was, but he had used one many times while living in Italy and knew just what a delicious cup of coffee it produces. What can I say, one try and I was hooked!
Get lost in a good book
I usually like to sip my coffee while reading a book, magazine or fashion blog. At the moment I’m reading “The Last Painting of Sara de Vos”, which I love! I’m a huge fan of mystery and suspense in literature- so if you have any recommendations, let me know!
If I get a hankering for fashion, I usually gravitate towards blogs or vlogs. But still, sometimes there’s nothing that beats the feeling of a magazine in your hand… Especially if I manage to bring some from Romania so I can enjoy them in my native language.
Chill in my pink robe and slippers
And the above could not be complete without my trusty fluffy robe and bunny slippers. They are the epitome of pampering and relaxation and have an unbreakable connection in my mind with the serenity that is a Saturday morning. Funny thing is I was totally not a robe & slippers kind of girl until I received them last year for my birthday. And oh my God, I did not know what I had been missing out on! Total convert of the plush lifestyle.
Plan out my day/ weekend
Another one of the items on my Saturday To Do List is trying to become a bit productive. So I start planning my day or weekend- usually while wearing a face mask, for efficiency (ahem…)
At the moment, I’m loving Holy Land cosmetics, so I use their system of cleanser+ lotion+ peel+ mask. Sometimes I alternate with the Black Mud Facial Mask & Body Pack, which is great for drawing out impurities. At the end I’m left with a smooth, hydrated face and a lot less skin freakouts for the following week.
Make a delicious breakfast
Another favourite of mine on Saturday mornings is whipping up a delicious and healthy breakfast. Smoothies, banana-egg pancakes, toast with hummus and grilled veggies- you name it, I’ll make it. And then down it all in 5 minutes.
I’m a strong believer in not having to sacrifice great taste and flavour for health and viceversa! So I’m always browsing food blogs for new, healthy, wholesome and delicious recipes.
Thanks for reading guys! Please let me know what your favourite Saturday activities are and what your perfect weekend looks like.
