Blooming El

LIFE. TRAVEL. GRATITUDE.

WONDERFUL WEDNESDAY #62

Good morning and a happy hump day to you all! I've just woken up from a particularly lovely sleep. You know the ones where you feel like you've actually rested? I could use a few more nights like the last one.

Shall we?

Homemade lasagne

My brother has been home for a few days and last night he made my family dinner. The only meal he's ever cooked us was Christmas dinner a few years back so it was about time he cooked us a little something. I'm not the biggest fan of lasagne but it was pretty damn delicious. 10/10 Sammy boy!

A design refresh

You may have noticed Blooming El has had a little paint job. I did like my last theme but I found the slider far too big and overpowering, so I opted for something a little more...classy shall we say?

My first boiled egg!

I'm 23 next week and I've only just boiled an egg for the first time. I know, I'm a poor excuse for an adult.

On my first attempt, the egg cracked straight away but my second attempt was a delicious success.

Freshly painted nails 

Having had my nails painted consistently for the last few months of 2017, I decided to give them a little rest and let them breathe for a while. On Saturday, I thought it was time to make my nails look pretty again, I whipped out the red nail polish and gave my nails some well deserved TLC. They're chipping slightly already but it was fun whilst it lasted!


That's it for this week! As usual, the happy lists don't stop there, so make sure you visit the rest of the wonder women* to see what's been making their week that little bit more wonderful. If you want to join in, share your #wonderfulwednesday moments with us on Twitter!
