Hey there, little bookworm bean sprouts🌱
➵ ➵ ➵
The Gilded Wolves by Roshani Chokshi captured my interest immediately, and now I can’t wait to read it! Here’s a little bit about it:
Paris, 1889: The world is on the cusp of industry and power, and the Exposition Universelle has breathed new life into the streets and dredged up ancient secrets.
An engineer with a debt to pay. A historian who can't yet go home. A dancer with a sinister past. And a brother in all but blood, who might care too much.
Together, they'll have to use their wits and knowledge to hunt what they seek through the dark and glittering heart of Paris. What they find might change the world, but only if they can stay alive.
CAN YOU SEE WHY I’M ALREADY HOOKED?! This has been bumped up super close to the top of my TBR!

QOTD: type in “Once upon a time” in the comments, and let autocorrect finish the rest of the sentence! What does it say?
AOTD: Once upon a time we had a wonderful time together with this stunning new book I loved (this sounds like real life😂)
i m p e r f e c t // there will never be a time when everything is just right, even if it did happen you’d look for ways they could be better or different. That’s the nature of desire — ever changing and never satisfied. The trick is to enjoy life as it is in the moment because everything is actually exactly how it’s supposed to be even if it feels like nothing is going right.
Only a few days left on the gorgeous island of Gozo before driving back to mainland Malta. Old world charm at its best and I highly recommend it (plus direct flight from ABZ bonus!) such a relaxing atmosphere and the history!!!Thanks to everyone that has messaged me about kits and classes - I’ll be back in full swing on July 29th #holidaymode 🏝🙋🏻♀️☀️
Inspiring photo for my next weave! When I look around, I see the colors and imagine how they would look woven together. Tropical locations are my favorite places to get that inspired. Seems like a great excuse for another vacation, right?

Some of you asked about the plants I used for my bundle in yesterday's post so here's a little flatlay to show you them.
They have all been harvested from my humble balcony patch, and all from edible plants🌿
It feels really satisfying to be able to harvest and use botanicals I've grown for my work and food👩🏻🌾👩🏻🍳
Do you recognise any of them?

Has anyone else been completely smitten with the Nordstrom anniversary sale? #nsale
Packages are slowly trickling in since I started shopping last Thursday at 8 am (yes, I was that crazy person at the store when it opened ... this sale is like Christmas for me).
I snatched up an amazing suede mini skirt, olive jeans and the cutest dresses for fall.
I have a FOMO on what else I missed adding to my bag ... what did you order my little stylish friends? My insta story has the highlights on what I scored. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Happy #THIRSTYTHURSDAY Worthy Babes! 🥂🍾⠀
Who is down to enjoy these bubbles tonight?!⠀
GIGGLY ROSE COCKTAIL 🍹 ⠀
Besides the fact that this cocktail combines a few of our favourite ingredients, we must admit that it's really the name that we love the most: Giggly Rose Cocktail. 😆⠀
With both gin and champagne, it's not only a perfectly pretty cocktail that's fit to accompany any party dress 👗 but it’s deadly enough to be the perfect night cap or help you wind down your work week 🗓⠀
Here’s the recipe ✨⠀
Giggly Rose Cocktail // ⠀
Bunch of mint leaves, leaves picked⠀
4 oz gin⠀
¼ cup lemon juice⠀
Dash of rose syrup⠀
Bottle of sparkling wine or champagne⠀
Ice cubes, to serve⠀
Unsprayed roses, to garnish⠀
1 // Gently massage the mint leaves between your fingers to release their aroma, then stuff into the bottom of your champagne flutes.⠀
2 // Combine gin, lemon juice, rose syrup and plenty of ice in a cocktail shaker. Shake well and pour into the glasses, topping them up with sparkling wine.⠀
3 // Garnish wish roses, add a cute straw and serve immediately.⠀
Enjoy responsibly, Loves 💕⠀
✨ Tag a friend who you’d like to sip one of these bubbly beauties with! 🥂🍾⠀
I'm usually pretty big on the brighter colours but sometimes less is more. This space just needed a quiet guy
