Weekly Ponderings 15

This week I was excited about…

A surprise birthday weekend away for Mr Sunshine-to-be to…(drumroll)… Oman! You can read all about the hotel we stayed at here and there will be another post about all the other things we got up to in Muscat next week. Here are the highlights:

This week I was reminded…

How beautiful our world is as photos of stunning landscapes flooded social media on Earth Day. Some of my favourites were these pictures of the earth from space, provided by NASA.

This week I appreciated…

Some chilled evenings with my man

A not so chilled evening with friends, watching Mark Ronson DJ until 3am in the beautiful gardens of the Sheraton Doha next to the Persian Gulf.

Writing another guest post – this time for The Lifestyle Diaries. Taking over someone else’s blog for the day can be a lot of fun, and I urge all of you bloggers to give it a go at some point!

I’m over on www.thelifestylediaries.com talking about my favourite #followyoursunshine travel destinations this week. This is the beautiful Unawatuna in #SriLanka. Head on over to @lauren.a.hudson ‘s lovely blog for the rest! #beach #travel #luxurytravel #travelblog #travelblogger #tbloggers #luxury #bliss #view #guestblog #sunshine #sun #holiday #holidayplanning #beautifuldestinations

      Thanks my love! I have a notoriously terrible memory so I am looking forward to going back through all of these in a year's time and being like, "I don't remember doing THAT!!". I do love my home pool rather a lot. I'm currently making the most of it before it gets too hot to go outside and enjoy it. Hope you're having a great weekend lovely.

    Sounds like a fab week! How was Mark Ronson?

    • April 26, 2015 / 7:53 am

      It was wonderful! Mark Ronson was sooo good! He played a lot of old school stuff, and also played Uptown Funk twice which I was very happy about. Are you a fan? Happy Sunday lady!!

    I wish my week had been like that 😀 The Chedi looks amazing and I need to get me one of those eat cake every day tins – just as a gentle reminder that is!

    • April 26, 2015 / 7:55 am

      The Chedi is such an amazing hotel, I haven't seen anything quite like it before! Will be popping up a post early next week about it so look out for it 🙂 Hahaha, my sentiments exactly about the tin. I think I'm going to make myself one!! Hope you're having a good weekend.

      It was definitely another fun one…unfortunately, this one's currently looking a little more boring. I should start getting some things in the diary to rectify this. Looks like you have had an amaaazing weekend Angie! Looking forward to reading your upcoming posts 🙂

    What gorgeous instagram pics from Oman, loving the rOMANce too!

      Haha, thanks Lisa. I was rather proud of that one (so proud it's made it into the title of my next blog post!)

    Eat cake every day. Yup, you always have the best advice. x

      Hehe, it's my no. 1 motto in life, after "If Britney can make it through 2007, you can survive today".
