Weekend Reads #2



Although I haven't been writing here, I have been reading my usual favourites and even found a few new reads over the past month. Here are a few links which I loved and maybe you will too.

Vegan Banana Nut Protein Shake // The Peppermint Pencil. Ever since I finally invested in a nutribullet I have been gathering up smoothie recipes, this one sounds like a winner!

101 Uses for Tiny Jars // Sprunting. It's always lovely to come across another person who is jar obsessed. I used a lot of my jars at my wedding to hold all of the flowers and then accidentally threw away the lids. They didn't really have 101 uses after that.

Jeans: The Struggle is Real // Life Outside London. It's no secret that Michelle makes me belly laugh whenever I read her blog but this one was a particular favourite. I can confirm that I bought this jeans too, in black, and they definitely don't disappoint. At half the price of my beloved Topshop Joni they are quite the contender. They don't keep as snug around the knees for me though.

Embracing Early Starts // One Pleasant Day. A new read for me and one I can't get enough of. Each post is so beautifully written and photographed but it doesn't lose that personal touch that I find a lot of blogs do. It was hard to narrow it down to one post but this one in particular really resonated with me as I am an early riser myself but don't always use the time that productively.

Taking Stock: April // Muted Mornings. What is a links round up without the ever so lovely Mimmi I hear you say. I couldn't agree more and I love these little round up posts. One to adopt for this blog I think.

10 Happy Things #34 // Jasmin Charlotte. Always a fan of happiness and I also like to find new reads so these posts are practically heaven for me. Jasmin always makes this homebody want to travel and now I also want one of those fancy water bottles. Darn.

The Joys of Second Hand Bookshops // The Lit Nerd. Ellie's blog is probably the reason that I have picked up so many books lately, this post have reminded me that I am definitely overdue stopping by a second hand bookstore and also that I still have to join the library down the road.

Photo A Day #19 // Life As Unusuals. I don't know how Kerri manages to find so many interesting things to document over the course of a week. Either way, she always makes me feel extremely lazy and gives me a shove out of the door to have my own adventures.

Have you discovered any new reads lately that I should check out? Leave them in the comments or tweet me, I'd love to discover more.

What's in a name?



Well, after taking a big break to think about what I wanted for this little blog I am back with a new name and at some point in the (very) near future, a slightly spruced up look. The site is getting a little spring cleaning this weekend with updated bio's and such. I feel like perhaps I outgrew Oh Hello, or perhaps I simply couldn't relate to it anymore. A lot has happened since I last posted, Byron and I moved into a new home, a huge project at work is now fully underway and I turned 30! Eek! I'll be back to catch you up properly but I'm currently thinking about food and Eurovision so let's do that tomorrow?

In the meantime, bear with me and the slightly wonky site but if something really isn't working - Disqus I am looking at you! - then please let me know and I'll get it fixed asap.
