Coffee, The Barn Roastery, Berlin

I’ve spent this past weekend bunkered down, drowning in a neverending pile of paperwork. I’m finally paying for the fact that I’ve spent the last two weekends in Italy and then Serbia, frolicking about without a care in the world. Now I’m playing catch up. Friends, I hope you’ve had a doubly exciting weekend, to make up for the lack of fun in mine!

Heavenly cups like this one have been my saviour this weekend…

WATCH: There’s nothing like a good laugh to make you feel energised. In this interesting clip, psychologist Dr Robert Provine investigates the anatomy behind laughter. Fascinating stuff.

READ: Don’t these gorgeous photographs by Finn Beales just make you want to pack your bags right now and head off on the adventure of a lifetime? Yes. If you’re not following him on Instagram, you should be.

EAT: These peanut butter and chocolate energy bars are exactly what the doctor ordered. Now, only if I had time to make some! I do admit though, they are pretty darn easy to whip up.

MAKE: I love the look of this DIY ladder wardrobe. I can definitely see this in my bedroom.

DREAM BUY: What an incredible experience it would be to book one of the ‘treerooms’ at Sweden’s Treehotel one day. Über cool.

BUDGET BUY: How cute are these royalli slip-on flats from Nine West? Super comfy, stylish and cheap.

GO: I’ve had a whirlwind few weeks, having spent the past two weekends in two new new countries. I’ve loved every minute of it, but have to say that I’m a little exhausted right now and am happy to lay low in Berlin for the next few!

Wishing you a happy week!
