Monday Top 5 – 16th April

Here are the Top 5 things that made my Monday great:

1. My new issue of Frankie magazine arrived in the mail today

My lovely housemate Anthony bought me a subscription for Christmas, so it’s the gift that keeps on giving! He’s a keeper, my Anthony!

2. I purchased Lush’s face moisturiser, Imperialis, with the rest of my birthday money

I’ve been using the cleansers and soaps all weekend and watching my skin improve day-by-day, while slowly falling more and more in love with Lush. To top it off, I used my Cupcake mask last night in the bath, and I don’t think my skin has ever felt so soft (and I have used MUCH more expensive products in the past). After cleaning it with such beautiful products, I thought it only fair to my skin that I follow it up with a moisturiser to match, so off to Lush I went, and Imperialis is what I came out with. So far, so happy!

3. I started my day with a yoga routine

Simple, but so effective. It is easy to forget how good I feel when I start the day with yoga, and I haven’t been very devoted to it of late, so I’m very proud that I managed to motivate myself, because all day I felt blissful enough to get me through.

4. I cooked myself a delicious and nutritious dinner-for-one

Matt is away on business this week because he is a grown up, and Anthony sorts out his own meals at the moment, so for the first time in a long time, I cooked dinner just for myself. It was very easy; bbq chicken breast (the rest to be used in other meals) and stir fried veg in garlic, oregano and lemon juice. Quick, easy and oh-so delicious! And enough leftover for my lunch tomorrow.

5. I’m feeling rested

Yesterday we got back from my birthday weekend, which was a fantastic weekend in Anglesea, Victoria, filled with beach games, sunshine, canoeing, touristy times, board games and lovely mates, and I am feeling incredibly happy and better for having such a wonderful break.

So that’s my Monday Top 5. Have a wonderful week everyone!
