So many things are rocking my world lately and I thought I’d start a new feature and share them with you every month. And I’m calling it pick ‘n’ mix as this is going to be totally random and you might see anything on here!
The only link is that I’m loving them!
I have been binge listening to the Invisibilia podcast. It’s SO good. It’s all about the invisible things in your life that you can’t see but that affect your daily life. Like fear and thoughts and beliefs. It has introduced me to new ideas and I’ve learnt even what quantum entanglement is, I can’t wait to impress everyone I meet with this! Every episode is such a different experience and it’s all done in a very chatty, breezy style. I can’t recommend it enough.
My favourite snack most evenings has been Peanut Butter and Banana. I’m still working hard on operation Trish Transforms and I’ve cut a lot of crap out of my diet. So I love that this little treat tastes so good but still has lots of nutritional goodness going on too. I’ve found over the last few months that I’m craving foods that are working with my body rather than the processed ‘treats’ that I used to over indulge in. Don’t worry I still have some of those too though!
Another new favourite is this Yoo Moo Frozen Yogurt. Mmmhhhh! So good. This brand was on special in my local Aldi store and yay because I’ve discovered a new love. But urrgghh because on special means that it won’t be there every week. Let the search commence for another stockist.
And True Detective, series 2 has been making my Mondays a lot less blue. We are three episodes in now and I’m really enjoying it. From the haunting music at the start, to the great cast and a storyline that I haven’t got a clue where it’s heading, this is reeling me right in.
A year round favourite of mine is my Clarins Hand Cream. I always have a tube of it on my desk at work and whenever I need a little pick me up, I apply some. I love the scent and my hands appreciate the non greasy moisture boost too.
One of treasured treats is to slip away to a coffee shop with just me and a great book. It is something that I had forgotten how much I loved but now I make the effort to make sure I do it at least once a month. My favourite drink during the summer is a refreshing lemonade. Buzz + Zingy drink + Book = BLISS.
I also had a trip to one of favourite places this month. It is a lake near my house that it just perfect for walking and thinking and even a spot of reading. It is so peaceful and I always come away a little bit renewed after visiting it. The picture is a bit dark but take my word for it, it’s beautiful. As much as I enjoy material things, nothing can beat the experience of being somewhere that makes your heart sing. So I think this is a good one to end this first series of my monthly favourites with.
Talk to Trish: What are you listening to, watching, eating, etc that you are loving? I love nothing better than finding a little something that I can look forward to indulging myself with so don’t be shy with your recommendations.
