I love Sunday. Sleeping in, brunch, staying in my pyjamas for as long as possible, curling up with a good book, listening to music, relaxing and rewinding…
Today, I’ve been loving:
Priscilla Ahn – ‘Dream’
A few weeks ago, a friend recommended Pandora for finding music. Turned out that I had signed up for it a long time ago, well, long enough for me to forget my password. Now I can’t get enough of it – especially the Joshua Radin radio station, which I’ve been listening to almost every day. I love listening to it while catching up on the blogs I follow on Bloglovin and drinking a nice cup of tea. Through the Joshua Radin radio station, I discovered Priscilla Ahn and this song:
I’ve been listening to it on repeat lately. It’s hauntingly beautiful; the kind of song that makes you want to stop what you’re doing and close your eyes. Because that’s the best way to enjoy it.
A Beautiful Mess
I’ve been reading a lot of lifestyle/interior design/home decor/cooking blogs lately, and this is one of my favourites. I’ve also been loving Design Sponge and Decor 8. So much inspiration for my future home (whenever that may be…)! I think I need to start using Pinterest…
Cate Blanchett. What more do I need to say?
The Wolf of Wall Street
Three hours of debauchery. At one point in the film, I was disgusted by what seemed to be an ode to wealth and status, a not so subtle attempt to glorify greed and justify psychopathic behaviour. The film could have benefited from a tighter plot and more drawn out characters, but overall, I did quite enjoy the film. I do generally enjoy Wall Street films though. The acting was superb. (Oh, Leo.) And I didn’t even realise Margot Robbie was from the Neighbours! It was only after I looked at the cast carefully did I remember who she was… though my only recollection of her is in school uniform.
I found a good cinnamon teacake recipe so I decided to try it out! The prep wasn’t too difficult, though I did find creaming the butter and sugar a little messy. As it was baking, the kitchen was enveloped with the warm aromas of cinnamon and butter. YUM. The cake was quite delicious indeed. Although I probably should have made it earlier in the day, as eating cake late at night is probably going to be very unforgiving… on my waistline. But that’s why I have a gym membership, right?
Happy ‘Straya Day!
What are your Sunday loves?
