Gorgeous things

So that was Easter. Been, gone, done and dusted.

It’s the right season for Easter over here in the UK, being Spring and all, but I still find that old spectre of homesickness creeping in despite all the bunnies and chicks, and eggs. It was lovely going over to Strawberry Munchkin’s for a good old fashioned Easter egg hunt, and she even made some delicious Easter buns. We don’t really have Easter egg hunts in NZ, because..actually I don’t know why, really. It just didn’t seem to be part of our tradition. But the kids had a ball at SM’s house even almost-18 year old Son who was most impressed with himself being the only one who could find the ‘hidden up high’ ones.

You could say Strawberry Munchkin’s buns saved Easter.

And they tasted delicious.

Other gorgeous things over the Easter break included this beautiful Kit Heath bracelet featuring a pretty pastel Rule Britannia charm. Really lovely! So much so even the staunchy Kiwi tom-boy, Miss Fliss, said it was (and I quote) “Awesome!” and “It evens out the Ugg boots I’m wearing Mum”.

The perfect gift for a tweenie - Kit Heath silver bracelet with Rule Britannia charm. Miss Fliss loves it

But isn’t it pretty girlishness! I was delighted with it and think it would be a beautiful gift for an English tweenie. You can read more about Kit Heath jewellery (and their adult pieces) and find out about their stockists here.

Easter was also a time to discover the gorgeousness that is Instagram, as they finally released an Android version. I spent all weekend having fun cataloguing our life. Putting a pretty face on!

And of course, the big brown bear, Bailey!

What I didn’t photograph, but did enjoy was having all my family at home, and spending some time having a real heart to heart with my Englishman, after such a long time of feeling our relationship has been under such pressure.  Priceless moments.

So all in all I discovered some gorgeous things over Easter, despite feeling a bit woebegone. How about you? What made Easter for you?

Disclaimer: I was sent the beautiful kit Heath jewellery to review, however everything I have written represents my true, frank opinion. It really is lovely!

    Watching the kids gorge themselves on Easter Eggs is always enjoyable… simple pleasures.

      Yeah they used to be so sweet. Except that one time when Dark Princess barfed Easter Egg all over her bedroom ceiling that is.

      They are divine and very well travelled fur babies too. Both Bailey the lab and Stella the Tonkinese flew across with us from NZ.

      It was a lovely weekend and I managed to get my Englishman to enjoy NZ lamb slow roasted with smoked paprika, garlic and rosemary rub. Mmmm.
