Blooming El



Happy wonderful wednesday to you all! I hope you are all well and have had a brilliant start to the week! I've just returned from a very indulgent indian with some of my favourite people. Wrapped up in the cosiest dressing gown, with a stomach full of chicken korma and naan bread, I am ready to share all things wonderful with you...

Bagging a Parking Space

On Saturday I braved the Tesco car park in town. I don't normally go out on Saturday's as they're far too busy for my liking. I much prefer chilling out on the sofa, leaving my errands and little outings to Sunday morning. However, having spent several hours on the sofa binge watching Bates Motel, I thought I should get out of the house for a little bit. I hopped in my car and headed in to town. The roads were super busy and Tesco car park was rammed BUT as soon as I entered the car park, I managed to bag a spot in my usual area. The parking angels were definitely on my side that afternoon. I did a little cheery dance in my car, as a woman drove past looking very peeved. Sorry but a girls gotta do what a girls gotta do...

Fondant Fancies 

After purchasing a packet of Fondant Fancies and demolishing two of the baby pink ones, I had assumed that I had eaten all of the little pink treasures. The following day, I was craving something sweet so I slowly made my way back to the packet, with the intention of settling for a chocolate one (which let's face it, nobody really likes). As I slid the box open, my eyes met a beautiful pink little square and I let out a mini squeal. It really is the small things that make my week wonderful! 

A Relaxing Morning

Yesterday, I had the ultimate pleasure of star fishing in bed for a good 30 minutes. G was on an early shift at work which meant I could catch up on Made in Chelsea whilst getting ready for work, without disturbing anyone. 

The sky was such a beautiful blue and the park opposite us was covered in the perfect white-grey frost (if you look closely in the picture above, you should be able to see it). If I could wish for one thing, it would be that G was a morning person. That we could rise early, enjoy the magical scene outside our bedroom window and slowly make our way downstairs for a breakfast feast. In the mean time, I'm happy for his work to schedule in a few more early shifts and have a slow morning or two all to myself. 

Angus and Julia Stone

Earlier this week, I read one of Alex's blog posts which mentioned the song she chose to walk down the aisle to. Intruigued, I followed the link and was greeted by such a beautiful sound. I have been listening to them on Spotify ever since, their songs create the most perfect serene atmosphere. I think my favourite song so far is All the Colours. I will be making the most out of my premium trial and getting as much Angus and Julia Stone lovin' as possible. 

That's all for this week folks! Now it's your turn - what has been making your week extra wonderful? Share your #wonderfulwednesday moments with myself and the rest of the gang* on Twitter


  1. I love little wins like parking spaces! Those kinds of things make me very happy!

  2. Slow mornings are the best, aren't they? My husband left his company job and started freelancing last month, so it's been slow mornings for me. I don't have to wake up early and cook breakfast because we've become more of brunch people and it's so. Darn. Amazing.

    Hope the rest of your week is just as wonderful!


  3. Im so jealous of your Indian, I haven't had one in ages! Plus hurray for relaxing mornings! I am actually having one of those myself this morning as I have been given the day off, so it's a morning of catching up with blog posts and watching box sets in bed! xx

  4. Indian and cosying up in a dressing gown? You are winning,my friend. My dressing gown has been keeping me so snug this week. Our flat is freezing so the dressing gown goes over everything. The view is just lovely and slow mornings always settle me ready for the day.
    High fives for mini wins like parking spaces and the last french fancy!
    Have a lovely week xx
