April 2016 finds


April’s finds have been tricky. Not because of lack of inspiration, but drilling it down to five things that I want to share with you all has been difficult. Still, in the spirit of my monthly finds post, here are a few things that are worthy of writing about this month.

1. Venice. I’ll be starting my series of Venice posts later this week and my recent visit confirmed that it is the most magical place in the world.

2. Daniel Martin Moore. His beautiful album, Golden Age, has formed quite the repeated playlist for me. It’s mellow and lyrically stunning. It’s available on Spotify and I highly recommend checking it out.

3. Flax seed. A weird find, I know, but I’ve always been a chia seed girl. That’s until I realised flax seed tastes kind of like crushed up biscuits. Now I’m adding it to my yoghurt everyday – it’s so healthy yet tastes like a treat. How can that be?

4. Jo Malone Nasturtium and Clover scent. I bought the perfume on the way back from Venice and it smells so good!

5. Sofa.com. A Sofa.com store has opened in Edinburgh – hurrah! Team that with my love for their website, I’ve gone all out sofa obsessive. I especially love this one.

What have you stumbled across this month that’s worth me checking out? I’d love to hear them!

    I’m also a big fan of Flax seeds. It was actually my husband who “discovered” milled flax in our local Waitrose store and now we eat it with yogurt every morning. Looking forward to read about Venice:)

    I am so looking forwards to reading about Venice! It’s not somewhere I have even thought about going to but I love seeing places through others eyes.

    Mmm…biscuit seeds. I’ve had flax seeds mixed into things, but I think those foods overpowered the flavor of the seeds themselves. I’m gonna have to try them on their own! I am alllll about Jo Malone right now. I wish I had enough money to justify a monthly JM Candle budget, haha.

    LOVE that purple sofa!
    Also, I’m visiting Venice for the first time soon, so I can’t wait to see your posts!
    I always blend flax seeds up into my fruit smoothies in the morning, for an extra health kick, but I’ve actually never tried them by themselves to see what they really taste like! Biscuits? Interesting! Hahaha
