March in 1:1 Snaps

March 28th  •  Posted in Lifestyle

I don’t know about you, but I’m super ready for April! As much as March has been a nice month (not extremely beautiful and with ups and downs as usual, but not too bad as well) and the weather has been getting lovely, I’ve stepped outside the house today and was welcomed by the most warming 18°C sun I’ve seen this year – so if April is going to be this good… I’m sold! I’ve already planned a bit too many weekends up and about in Milan to visit all the Pinterest-worthy coffe shops I’m able to spot in one day, and if this will to go out and do things is flourishing again in me after this long winter, it’s surely thanks to the official magical arrival of Spring! Plus I’m overly excited for Easter coming next week! Anyone else?!

But back to March, here are a few highlights from the month…

1 :: Being able to go out without a coat, just leaving it at home, best feeling ever!

2 :: Discovering hummus – yes I know I’m a little bit late on the bandwagon with this one, but in my defense I’d say it’s not that common here in Italy! Obviously I love it, especially if served with a lovely homemade romantic dinner for two, such a treat!

3 :: Buying new yoga gear. I’ve been working really hard at sticking with home yoga at least 4/5 days a week and I definitely deserved a treat, so new yoga gear and clothes it is! There’s something so terapeutic about buying new workout clothes – it definitely helps at keeping the motivation alive and treating yourself for all the hard work!

4 :: Being able to take a few days off far from my laptop. It was really nice and such a well-deserved free time after months of working at my laptop every single morning and afternoon (and sometimes evening too, because when you work from home it’s easy to forget what working hours mean!). I switched off and enjoying some free time with my better half, spending the first days of nice weather of the year outside instead of inside!

5 :: Trees covered in pink blossoms! I haven’t seen that many for the majority of the month and it probably was the reason why I felt spring wasn’t officially here until only a week ago, when I started spotting one after the other. There’s nothing that makes me happier and feeling inspired than flowers in springtime, I’ll tell you this!

6 :: The school (literally) of little (and big!) Lindt Gold Bunnies that knocked at my door a few days ago – seriously Lindt and this lady here love to see me gaining weight, but I love them too because sometimes only chocolate would do after a ‘meh’ day.

Three favourite instagrammers :: @milkthistles (for the perfect balance of amazing flat lays, flowers, stationery, breakfast and juices!), @joyceeduyao (flat lays queen!) and @artandsoulcreativeco (because Laura does the cutest illustrations that have ever been!).

What’s on your happy list this month? x

    I can’t wait till April either. This is the first weekend where I’ve felt sun on my face and WANTED to be outside, instead of running into the nearest building to defrost my frozen fingers! Roll on summer!
