Friday Favorites - Week 372


Hey there party peeps!

Do you have all your Mother's Day gifts ready? I don't :D But I'll take my mom (and dad and boyfriend) out for a picnic in the open on Sunday. I won't say anything more about it though because I know that my mom reads my blog ;-) So instead, here's what happened this week so far
  • Explored London last weekend with my boyfriend – we walked about 90km, went to every single park in search of squirrels (finally found some in St. James's Park and took heaps of photos with them of course), admired the city at night, ate the most scrumptious peanut butter chocolate pie at a vegan bakery/cafĂ© (Cookies and Scream) as well as a delicious Ethiopian plate at the Old Spitalfields Market (Merkamo Ethiopian), and stuffed our faces at the best and cheapest all-vegan Chinese restaurant in Camden (Dou Dou).
  • Discovered another great vegan recipe website (Vegan Family Recipes) and have already put their DIY Coconut Butter on my to-do list. Looks sooo good!
  • Ended my sugar-free month and shared my tips on how to quit sugar in a recent blog post.
  • Currently participating in the free 31 Yoga Revolution Program by Adriene Mishler, so if you want to join me: we are now on day 11 :)
  • Adoring those too-good-to-be-real Succulent cakes, aren't they just so adorable?!
  • By the way, if you are still looking for a way to Pamper Your Mom on Mother's Day, Mary of The Boondocks Blog shared some lovely gift ideas over on her website! Apart from that, my feature this week (Easy Handmade Hand Lotion from Angie) is also a great last-minute Mother's Day gift.
  • If you are wanting to pamper yourself (which is always a great idea), head over to Sophie's side and read about her great tips to Build an Anxiety Toolbox!
  • Once again I would like to point out that you can still find a form at the end of the linky party where you can sign up to become a fellow party hostess! So if you are interested in being a part of the Friday Favorites linky party, just fill out the form below :)

But enough talking. Let's start this party!
