A Perfect Sunday

Another week full of start up craziness, after-work get-togethers and newly added binge-watching of How To Get Away With Murder is finally over, ready to be restarted in less than 24 hours. So to refuel my energy levels, on Sundays I like to spend my day either admiring the flowers at Broadway Flower Market, while munching on some street food goodies from Brick Lane, or simply staying in and having some me time. Last week Emma and I squeezed our way through the crowds, trying to get a good deal on some fresh eucalyptus for my room. It was such a beautiful day, I couldn’t care less when someone called me a hipster while posing with my purchases. No chance in destroying my good mood! And the eucalyptus still looks gorgeous and makes me room smell all fresh and summery.

Though, today it’s all about having some quality time by myself. It’s nice to sometimes just switch your phone off, read a good book and have cup of tea. Though, there’s one Sunday ritual I’m sticking to, no matter how hungover I might be from the night-out on Saturday or whether or not I spend most of the day walking around East London: soaking in a hot bubble bath, putting on a relaxing face mask and finishing off this home-spa experience with a manicure. Okay, I don’t always get to the manicure part, but at least I’m trying. I’ve never bothered too much about how my nails looked like. However, now that I’m friends with Emma and she’s on top of her nail game, I feel like I need to keep up. Seriously, her nails always look good! Is it just me and I’m the only lazy girl out there, or is she just at a different level altogether? Maybe I should get my nail polishes out, instead of wondering about this…
