Weekend Friday Favourites

Happy Sunday as the Americans say! And Happy International Women’s Day to all the amazing ladies I know and amazing ladies who inspire me, motivate me and so many other amazing ladies.

International Womens Day

A late Weekend Friday Favourites, so I’ll get straight to them and Fridays run view!

Friday Run View7km along the beaches and stadium steps sprints. March’s windy here and combined with heavy legs, that I would run right on the shore break as opposed to the compacted sand to avoid the nudists out in full force and prep for Spartan raced, mud laced trainers it was an interesting run!

Education Has No Age Limits

Priscilla Sitienei proves it’s never to late to start learning. 92 years young and the worlds oldest primary school student!  An inspiring lady for International Women’s Day.

Tiger Bubble Padded EnvelopesMetallic Padded Envelopes

The only way to describe Tiger is a revamped up market LibrasPound/Euro/Dollar shop selling everything you didn’t know you needed until you saw it. Like these metallic padded envelopes that make a great alternative to wrapping paper.

After replating. GeorgianIn January I found out that Gorjana offers a free replating service for all their jewellery, gold or silver. I posted off my sad looking bracelets back in January and this they week they arrived looking brand spanking new! Thank you Joanna at Gorjana for taking care of them!

Peacock TailPeacock, Barcelona Zoo

I find their tails more beautiful as they fan out them like a cloak out hopping up on fences or perched with their long trains sweeping down. It’s quiet elegant drama compared to when they’re shaking it all for the ladies!

Sephora CardSephora offers

Most store cards I’ve come across in France and Spain aren’t worth signing up for. In the UK, supermarket points cards work for you. Sephora however knows the game. 10% off every 4th buy or 150 points collected. Every 6-8 weeks, they send a 20% off voucher that you can use as many times as you like in a 2 week period. That’s loyalty!

    That peacock tail is just so intricate and beautiful. I have to read up on the 92 year old student. Talk about a brave, inspirational story!

      I like how the colours shine like oil slick puddles! That lady is an inspiration. She goes to school with her grandkids and holds ‘healthy’ competitions with them! The link is her name.
