Happy Saturday lovelies! Who else is excited it’s the weekend? Sometimes I feel like I spend quite a lot of my week wishing for the weekend, and this week was no exception. It was a very busy one with lots of extra work needing to be done to make up for me taking the next two weeks off. But it was all worth it (I say that now…) because as we speak, my twin sister Lauren and I are flying across oceans and continents from Brisbane, Australia to Paris, France. To say we are excited is an understatement. This trip together honestly feels like something we only ever thought a dream, and yet, here we are. It’s really happening!
Things on Let Us Wanderlust will continue on as usual over the next two weeks and I have some great posts lined up for you that I’m really excited about, including super fun collaboration with the lovely Toni from Lemon Freckles! So keep your eyes peeled for that 🙂 But for now, here is a little list of the things that made me most happy this past week…
1// Turning 26! Yep, I turned 26 this week and it was wonderful. Ty made me the most sinfully delicious birthday cake – a lemon and ginger nut cheesecake – and ohmygosh it was amazing. Maybe it only lasted two nights, or maybe it didn’t. I guess we’ll never know 😉
2// Visits from Ty’s parents! We’ve been lucky enough to have Ty’s lovely parents visit and stay with us for two nights over the past two weeks and it’s been so great. This week they watched My Kitchen Rules with us (sadly, Ty and I are addicted – well it’s mainly me, but Ty is sweet enough to endure it with me) and it was so much fun! I feel very lucky to be marrying into such a wonderful family.
3// Breton stripes! This week, while digging around in the back of my closet, I uncovered one of my much loved but long forgotten striped tops. It most definitely made it into my suitcase, because is there anything more French than Breton stripes? Happy days!
4// Filming YouTube videos! I filmed 3 this week, all on Thursday, with about a two hour break because my lovely camera battery decided to die (rude!). If all goes well, there’ll be a makeup tutorial, hair tutorial and my March+April Favourites up on my channel very soon. Can’t wait to share them with you 🙂
5// Flying to Paree! As this post goes live, I will be in the air/in Singapore/in Dubai and while I’m not a major fan of long haul flights (I’ve been rereading this post to ready myself), I won’t be too far away from the best part – being reunited with my twin in Paris. Eeeeeek!
What were your favourite moments from the week that was? I hope you all have a wonderful weekend in store, and if you’d like to stay up to date with my adventures in France and Greece in real time, I’m @letuswanderlust_carly on Instagram!
Thanks so much for reading, and à bientôt! XO
