Oh, happy weekend

We'll mainly be gearing up to head a very good friend's wedding next weekend in Devon! The wedding will (hopefully) be outdoor with the sheep, but if the weather misbehaves it will be inside a lovely, very old castle-ish building. Plenty but plenty of photos will be posted on Instagram.

In addition to making a recipe Ashley sent me for nutella milk, I'm also aiming to make guacamole for the World Cup final on Sunday which I am super duper pumped about. Again, this is totally out of character. Have a great one, ya'll!

Perhaps the most incredible story I've ever heard. Can't wait to get the book!

Well, well, well. If it isn't Friday.

This weekend, I'd like to get domestic. (Maybe) try cooking something - vegetarian lasagna, anyone? - and maybe do some cleaning. Our flat has gotten out of control, and I'd like to get it to looking a little something like this Scandinavian-esque treat. 

Here are some nice things to read this weekend from around the web in case you missed them. Enjoy!
