We are 100% in need of a long weekend! Who's with us? Now that lockdown has been eased, we're able to spend a 'lil quality time with our best buds out in the sunshine, catching the rays and getting up to speed with all the gossip. Want some inspo on where to go and what to do? Don't worry! We've got you covered.
Picnic In The Park
If you're anything like us, then over the last year you will have been on more walks than in the rest of your life put together. However, whilst restrictions still limit us to outdoor gallivanting for the bank holiday weekend, some of the best parks in London seem like the right place to start.
Grab some bougie snacks (we're talking prosec, strawbs and a shit load of Galaxy chocolate) to help you take in the amazing views that the below parks have to offer. Why not hire a bike? TFL have put together a handy guide of some great cycle routes around the city, so you can never be short for inspiration.
Warning: don't drink and ride!
Richmond Park, TW10
Holland Park, W11
Hampstead Heath, NW3
Greenwich Park, SE10
Cookin' Up A Storm
We all know that Easter is the perfect opportunity to brush up on your baking skills. Great British Bake Off, who's she? Stock up on Mini Eggs and Creme Eggs (the amount of sugar hasn't put us off!) and get mixing up some brownies in the kitchen. Remember, the more mess you make, the better the outcome!
Our gal @janespatisserie is the best in the biz when it comes to the most insane bakes ever, so check out her creations below. Ready, steady, BAKE.
Bubble candles have taken the world of Instagram by storm. If you don't have one, we know you want one. And if you do already own one... well, we know you want more! Give into temptation, but feel good about it because you made your own. You can buy candle moulds pretty much anywhere on the internet and then just follow our little 'How To' guide...
- Place the wick into the vessel you are using for the outline of your candle. If it is a silicone mould, you may have to poke a small hole in the bottom to allow the wick through. Make sure you have secured the wick using something like a lollipop stick to either side of the mould.
- Start to melt the wax in a pan over a low heat. Add any colouring or fragrance.
- Carefully pour the hot wax into the mould.
- Finally, trim the wick to size after the wax has set fully and remove your brand-own, homemade candle from the mould.
