Time to relax

Hello Loves,

Life can be hard. We can get stuck in the hustle and bustle of reality, we can forget about what really counts. Spending time with family and friends.

With this in mind, a couple of weeks ago some of my closest friends and I planned a little trip away. We ventured up to my family condo in Blue Mountain for a ‘grown up’ couples weekend. We drank wine, ate cheese, giggled to Cards Against Humanity, soaked in the hot tub and even…….get this……..sang ‘Let it go’ from the movie Frozen, not only in English but also French and Japanese!!!  Maybe we had a little too much Merlot!!   It was very much needed minibreak, infact it was PERFECT!

Sometimes we need to stop. Sometimes we just need to be in the moment surrounded by people we love.

Here are some weekend activities you and the whole family/friends can do that won’t break the bank:

Bubble soccer (Google or Youtube for a hilarious explanation!)


Throw a dinner party

Games night

Disney marathon

Airbnb mini vacay

Paint night

Wine tour


Do you have any relaxing plans for the weekend?

    Love the shirt!! Plays up your tanned skin ever so beautifully 🙂 this weekend will be a tad busy for me, several photoshoots which were originally meant to happen during the week but thanks to Houston being on tornado alert, had to be rescheduled. Imagine if I had a twister in the backdrop of a photo??!! GRIN xoxo

    Wow, that sounds awesome, Filipa! I bet you did have a blast! I agree, it’s so easy to get caught up in the everyday hustle and it’s so important to make time to spend with our loved ones doing some fun or relaxing actives and just live in the moment! Thanks so much for sharing some suggestions and I hope you’re having a great week so far, beautiful!

    I completely agree. I night or weekend of r&r is so necessary to recharge. It’s always nice when you can do it with friends! You look great in this cozy bedroom look.

    These photos make me feel cozy and relaxed my dear. You look gorgeous, and I love relaxing on the weekend! Just sitting on the couch, drinking tea and watching Netflix is the best haha

    Hope you have a good weekend ahead!

    I completely agree we do get caught up in the madness. I’m definitely thinking about doing a mini vacation after this school semester. I’m glad you enjoy the time away!

    You look amazing! You could wear a paper bag and still look SEXY as ever!! Loved this post! I had to schedule in some relaxing time…lol. Next week I plan to take a break from social media.
    I need to work on being present sometimes.
    Have a beautiful night!

    These photos are stunning! I’m in love with the choker 🙂 x Alona

    I’m a big fan of a dinner party. The place I live in now with my guy isn’t that big but once we have more space I’d like to invite people over and have a couples dinner party that turns into a slumber party. I think that would be a blast!

    Ah love that top! So comfy 🙂 You’re adorbs!
