As we reach the end of another week I am on serious half-term countdown! (One more week to go!). This week was a little upside down for me as I switched up my days when I would normally stay away from home, so I was a day out of sync all week! But, that said, it flew by and was a relatively good week in the scheme of things! I spent my week dreaming about half term lie-ins and free time (what is that anyway?!). To have guilt free days that are just for Joe and I are something I very much look forward to.

Let's jump in to the things that I have been grateful for this week...

1. Hearing your stories. Following the blog post I wrote last week about taking risks a few of you got in touch to tell me your stories. Thank you so much! It is lovely to hear that you have made a jump and had the faith that things will happen and other doors will open for you. It was super inspiring to read what you have been up to and helps me to realise that the things I feel sometimes are totally normal.

2. Girly catch ups. This week I met up with my lovely friend Helena for a catch up over dinner (on a school night and everything!). I met Helena through my blog and we have been pals since then. Nothing quite eases the soul than a good old laugh for a couple of hours, chatting about God knows what and sharing an ice-cream sundae :-)

3. Ella Masters is a bloomin' wonderful creative. I love her work and the fact that she is so prolific. This week, on her blog, she shared a post about how to be more creative and, although it states all the things we all probably know, it was nice to read it and get a mini kick up the butt (again) - I need this constantly! Personally, I can be ridiculously hard on myself sometimes which can paralyse my creativity for weeks, if not months, so reading posts like Ella's really help to keep at it!

4. Although this isn't actually happening until tomorrow I am very grateful (in advance) that it is! Tomorrow I am getting my grey hairs covered up, highlights refreshed and an inch or so chopped off my mane and I cannot wait. New hair is the ingredient to a better mood. 

5. Coming home last night to a packed of mini-eggs in the fridge thanks to my bloody wonderful husband. 

In other news:
I laughed a whole lot to the new Late, Late Show Carpool Karaoke with Chris Martin - the best one yet I think / I have been rather addicted to the stupid filters on Snapchat this week. They are utterly ridiculous but seem to keep me entertained for ages! (If you haven't added me yet my username is lucycarterart!) / I have been desperately trying to come up with something to give Joe for our first wedding anniversary - any ideas? What did you guys do for yours? / I treated myself to some new skincare this week and am now on a spending ban for the rest of the month (not that I spend a lot but I can't afford too many treats!). I am filming a bit of a make up and skin care video soon so won't give away what I bought just yet :-)

Have a fabulous weekend everyone. Don't forget to come and say hello over here or here!


  1. It seems like you had a great week. I love ella's artwork and blog. She's so talented.

    1. Hi Eline! I hope you had a great weekend! Ella is incredibly talented isn't she? I love following her work/blog and instagram too :-) I have just been having a read of your blog and must remember to add it to my favourites at home (I'm at work at the moment!). Thank you for taking the time to comment. Have a lovely week, lucy xx

  2. I loved the Carpool Karaoke with Chris Martin! James Corden is so funny and I love Coldplay so it was great :) Have you seen the one with Adele?

    And yay for mini eggs! I haven't had any yet this year but I wish they made them year round.

    1. I have seen all of them - they make me laugh so much (except the one direction and Justin Beiber ones actually... not a fan!). I can't believe you have been so good and not had any mini eggs yet...you are my hero! I can't resist them :-) Have a fab weekend honey xx
