Seven Things to Read, Listen, Eat, Drink or Watch

Here are seven things that I have been into lately that you may also like:

The Gillard Project by Julia Gillard’s speech writer is currently on my coffee table. While he sounds a little cocky, he does have enormous respect for Gillard. Her achievements tend to blur as time goes on, but she did achieve a lot and it is worth remembering. It's an interesting read.

The folk festival reminded me about First Aid Kit and their album have been on repeat ever since, along with Fanny, of course. I love Fanny.

I have switched back to black coffee during the work day and have been feeling much better for it. You aren't supposed to feel bloated after every coffee apparently!

A few weeks ago I started running outdoors again. There is something about being out in the crisp winter air that is just lovely. My tip to you is not to give up before you hit the 3k mark. The first 3ks of the run are a bit of a struggle but after 3k I tend to settle in and find a groove. 

I made this cranberry thyme gin cocktail recently and it was divine.

These cookies are absolutely delicious - make them and eat them today!

Looking forward to watching The Brink. The trailer looks hilarious:

Hey Natalie Jean - the book from the blog of the same name - is on my coffee table. I love her conversational writing. When you read her writing you feel like you’re best friends. She just has a wonderful way of putting you at ease and making you feel at home. 

I Love You Honeybear - the latest offering from Father John Misty is playing on rotation on my iphone. 

Latte - can’t go wrong with a coffee & a latte is the coffee of choice this month

At the moment I am loving doing weights at my gym, but as it has become cooler I have also started running outside again. I am thoroughly enjoying it, not least because I get to listen to podcasts but also because I love the feeling of pushing myself and making it through. The ‘i did something today feeling’.

Most of my downtime is spent blogging, but I do love reading and I feel like I’m on a sea saw, some months I’m stuck up high reading lots and lots and other months I am down low blogging lots and lots. 

Sack dresses covered in flowers are my comfort clothing right now - I am loving this Cameo dress and this dress from Primrose and Mimosa. I guess if I was 20 years older these dresses could be referred to as mumus? Right?!

I was in Darwin for work recently and loved the Rawgasm Paleo Cafe and Juice Bar in Mitchell Street Mall. Paleo salads at a reasonable price, you can’t go wrong with that food option. I wish they had a cafe in Alice Springs.
