Happy weekend + lovely links

Happy weekend lovelies! After an exhausting work-week I'm looking forward to taking some much needed time to relax and recharge. Two of my favourite ways  to unwind are taking Charlie on a long walk and baking {for my mum} - both of which are on the agenda! 

What are your plans?

Here are this weeks lovely picks...

+ I loved these 101 lessons life teaches. My favourite was this one: Age wrinkles the body.  Quitting on your dreams wrinkles the soul.
+ Louise from Loo, Boos + Shoes has just launched her hand-blended range of facial oils - L'Apothecary. The bottles are hard to resist being so charming + lovely! {thank you for the introduction Sophie!}
+ I'm swooning over the incredible homes featured in this month's Lonny.
+ Abby Larson's feature on The Everygirl was incredibly inspiring + her office is to-die-for.

...And in case you missed it...

+ Thoughts for a new week: be confident.
+ Best dressed at the Met Gala Awards.
+ The perfect cup of tea.
+ Clutch love.
+ I was also honoured to guest post over at Erika's blog sharing 3 different ways of styling black + white.

Have a wonderful weekend!

  5. Hope you had a lovely weekend Rachel! I've missed your blog and you always have the best links on the weekend (I now read the Marc and Angel Hack Life in the mornings before I get out of bed!!!) I also wanted to check in with you, hope everything is okay at the moment. Diane Von Fostenburg once said the biggest relationship you'll ever have in your life is the one with yourself so you should be proud of how strong you are and that you are moving forward positively.
