Five Things & Five Blogs I Love Friday | 2015 Edition #6

Evenings by fairy light. 
Sofa. Blankets. Fairy lights. Book. Perfect.

"Surplus" by Phil Kay.
Button Poetry is one of my favourite YouTube channels. I watched this the other night at 1am and it gave my heart a little cuddle.

Letting things go.
If they're not important then they're not worth worrying about.

Big bowls of homemade soup. 
Comfort food is the best kind.

I guess there are only four good things this time. It's been one of those weeks to be honest. But hey, it's almost the weekend and I will not be getting out of my pyjamas the entire time, apart from changing into clean ones.

  11. Letting things go is one of my motto, as I want to live a more
    simplistic and minimalistic life c: Xx

  12. I'll be honest, we've been basically on a soup/stew only diet this whole year in the Laila house. It's just the best and most warming thing in the winter! :) xx

  13. Number 3 is so important and I must remember this myself!

  14. I'm with you 100% Jennie with letting go.

    And on another note - fairy lights are the best. They make a room magical :) xxx


  16. I absolutely love this feature! It's great to find new blogs :) sorry you had one of those weeks, enjoy your weekend! :) x

  17. I have been making so many pots of soup this year. I don't follow a recipe I just throw in what veg I have & hope for the best. It's been working a treat & keeping me warm

  18. Yes to letting things go. The stress is just unnecessary!

  20. Sometimes, letting things go is probably the hardest but the most joyful thing to do.
