The Weekly Edit #13

Welcome to the Weekly Edition #13! Honestly, it has been a quite a boring week this week, and I am really looking forward to a bit of excitement in the next few months.

Here is what I have been loving/doing this week;

01.  I have eaten nothing but cake this week. I made a no bake Biscoff cheesecake last Sunday for dessert with the 'in-laws', and then I made a malt chocolate cake for a colleagues birthday. Obviously I had to taste test both..

02.  Last week I finally achieved 5 posts in a week on Flourish & Blotting, fingers crossed I can keep it up. I am planning my next giveaway to start in June, and watch out for quite a few travel posts on here.

03. I have been wearing quite wintery clothes this week. Argh! I just give up on the British weather. One minute I am wearing t-shirts, the next it's jumpers and thick tights. The holiday countdown is officially on for when I can wear a pretty summer dress.

04. I am really loving my peonies (featured image) that my boyfriend got me. I know I am like, such a blogger cliche. But like I said on my Instagram caption; he can work Saturday's more often!

05. This week I have been reading Room by Emma Donoghue. It's been on my list of things to read for quite some time. I really like it, even though it is quite dark. I am hoping I can catch up on my reading whilst I'm away.

06.  I have been listening to, and making the most of my Amazon Prime account this week. I have been doing so much baking recently, I usually just like to pop on a playlist and get to it.

07. I have been watching Amazon Prime. I finally caved and bought the Amazon Fire stick. I don't know whether thats a good, or bad thing. I really don't need another distraction, that's for sure. It actually looks pretty good, it also means I can finally watch Netflix in the bedroom! The little things.

08. I really want a new passport holder. You can tell I got my new passport last week, can't you? Does anyone have any idea where I can get a pretty one? I feel like I have looked everywhere but to no avail! 

09. I seem to be planning everything at the minute. The next few weeks are going to be mayhem, I can just tell. I have 2 trips in June, mine and James's birthdays, as well as a highly anticipated hair appointment. All good stuff though!

10. I've been feeling nervous and excited this week. I feel like I have so much to organise, and these weekends keep going at the speed of light! Every time Friday rolls around I am like, sucked into this time vortex of a black hole and it's Monday again in no time.

Well, that's it for another Edit. How was your week?

Love, Jo.



  1. Those peonies really are gorgeous! And well done on managing 5 blog posts - that's an awesome achievement! I could never think of that many ideas haha xxx

    1. Thank you Sweet! Unfortunately I didn't manage 5 posts this week. I think it might just have to be 4 for the foreseeable future! X
