Weekend Review #23


We’ve been having such a good run of sunny weather! Spring is officially here, I’m calling it. I no longer need to pile on layers, and I’m so happy! Anyway, the morning was spent doing errands as per usual.

For lunch, we watched a few episodes of the second season of Stranger Things.

I was hit with the urge to have something sweet. Specifically a lolly cake slice, which I was surprised to learn is a kiwi snack. I thought it was everywhere. It’s easy to make though, so I made some, and will share the recipe in a later post!

We didn’t have plans to go out really this weekend, we just wanted to relax. I went outside and just lay in the backyard for a while. It was really warm, and I got sleepy. I managed to finish reading my book before having a quick snooze. I also took a lot of selfies.

During (and after dinner), we watched more of Stranger Things. While we were watching I tried the Borghese Eye Masks. They felt sooo nice on my eyes, and didn’t feel  sticky at all when I removed them after 10 minutes. I would totally use them again if I had more.



We went for a early Sunday morning drive today. I didn’t snag any photos since I was the one driving for a change. It was nice to drive again, as I don’t do it so often anymore. We did stop by Kmart though as our laundry basket broke.

Afterwards, we came back home and finished watching Stranger Things. Then the rest of the afternoon was lost to some good old spring cleaning. We cleaned our whole little house, and threw out a lot of random papers and things we didn’t need. It felt good. For the rest of the evening, I doodled, and Rory did his own thing.

It was nice to wind down in preparation for another week.

To-Do List

  • Chores (Cleaning, Grocery, Laundry)
  • Take rest of photos for photo challenge
  • Bake something
  • Watch Stranger Things
  • Finish reading current book
  • Work on journals and planners

  1. Sounds like a perfectly relaxing weekend. And you got everything, except 2 things done on your list, not too shabby. Yeah, I have never heard of a lolly cake but I am curious now. I am dying to google it but will try and wait for your post 😉


    1. It really was! The sunshine made it extra nice. I always keep my lisys doable so i know I can get most of it done ? haha lolly cake is so good!! I haven’t gotten round to writing it yet, but it should be out before the end of the week ?


    1. It was so good! Both the weekend and Stranger Things! I would say it matches the first. There’s different elements to the story, but we were still tense throughout ? We didn’t mean to binge watch it this weekend, but we couldn’t stand not knowing what would happen next!


      1. Oh I love reading the Twilight books and there was this scene in the first book where Bella lay down a cloth or mat on the grass in their front yard, was reading a book and dozed off for a short while. Somewhat similar to your selfie. 🙂


  2. You’re still making me want lolly cake 😛 your sun/outside selfies are so cute! Sorry for all the comment spam, catching up with everyone’s posts from the weekend 🙂


  3. I love reading your posts 😀 This weekend would have been a good one for me to do a weekend post as I did so much this weekend…. But I took no photos! XD


    1. It really was! The lolly cake is a kiwi classic, and just such a tasty treat 😀 Thanks Laura! I’ve had this hat for a few years now, but I love bringing it out when the weather is nice 😀


  4. Ou stranger things?!?! How is it? Is it good? We are currently watching Orphan Black but we saw S.T pop up and thought maybe it would be fun!! Let me know what you think! xx


    1. I love Stranger Things!! We binge watched the first season last year as well. It’s such a good sci-fi show, it reminds me a lot of classic movies too like ET and Alien. If you like those, then you’ll love the show. Orphan Black is another good sci fi show too!


      1. I have never seen ET….. I know right?! Or Alien actually…. I’m not normally a fan of this genre but I am LOVING black orphan so maybe I should give it a go! xx
