22/04/13 Design , Lady Lauren Loves Life , Monday



This week I will mainly thinking about:

  • My driving test next week. I can’t believe it really, I sometimes often put a lot of pressure on myself saying “you’ll never be able to do that” and other totally useless negativity, but this time I kept my goal completely focused (with extra added positivity, which doesn’t always come easy) in my head and now the time has COME! I am feeling pretty good about it. Obviously I would love to pass but I also don’t want to put too much pressure on for the day.
  • Freelancing! This week is all go to get out there as it’s my last week at my currently role! Scary but exciting!
  • Updating. Updating. Updating. I don’t know about you, but I find the task of keeping my sites updated one of those projects I always procrastinate around. Promising myself that I WILL do it ‘tomorrow’. This is really bad. It’s where people will go first to have a nosey at the work I do and I know that I have a fair few projects that I haven’t posted ANYWHERE yet. Bad Lauren. So this is the week! 
  • Clean eating. I got this app: Clean Eating Recipes as I saw a friend post about it on Facebook and I decided to give it a go. So far I have tried the Chicken Satay and the Lemon & Chilli Chicken and they are all extremely tasty. It’s a great app and the recipes are very simple to make. So I’m getting right back on it this week and I am looking forward to trying more of them out. Do you have any good food apps?
Yurt at Dapper Camping Club
  • Planning future getaways. I really really really would LOVE to go ‘glamping’. I am constantly on the Dapper Camping Club site daydreaming about being there. But right now, it’s just a bit too far out on the budget. We’ve decided that we WILL be camping this year though, so I have been looking at some pretty awesome tents. How awesome are these old canvas tents, I HAVE to have one!

Some pretty things for your eyes:

Awesome work by Eight Hour Day

And finally, some MEGA CUTE facts from Holly from A Little Stranger’s  new character Usagi

Monday musings

This week I will mainly thinking about:

  • Updating my current portfolio Lady Lauren Loves to fall more inline with the blog.
  • Updating my work on there too, this is a long time coming :)
  • Making blog post lists/schedules and being a little more organised.
  • Moving around our second bedroom to transform it in to an office that we can both use, FINALLY.
  • Starting my driving lessons, I’M SO EXCITED!
  • Eating better meals (I will post recipes and pics at the end of the week).
  • Reading Oh Joy!’s new book Blog INC. I’m really excited to get this, as I have already read Joy’s Creative, INC. and Meg Mateo Ilasco’s Craft INC.
What will you be up to?
