Recently I took delivery of my first Good Housekeeping magazine. Having heard good things about the magazine in the past, I thought I would give it a try and see what I thought. It is a great all round read, with something for everyone and sections that include GH People, Tried and Tested, Good Health, Good Looks, Good Living and Good food, along with much more.
The issue has a lot of features about the current season, from home to fashion, baking a cake to feeding a family. One of my favourite articles in the issue was ‘Feels like Spring’, four pages of inspiration for bringing spring into your home and your wardrobe.
I do love wrapping up cosy in the winter, sipping on hot chocolate whilst tucked under a blanket with a good film. But I won’t lie; I would rather be having a picnic in the sun with an ice cream. Flicking through Good Housekeeping made me crave warmer weather even more. The mornings are getting lighter, and the sun is out a little more but it can still be a bit cold!
According to Good Housekeeping, we should all be spoiling ourselves with soft shades and pastels, a house full of flowers and colour, with scents of roses, mint, lavender and eucalyptus. They also feature a beautiful sage green vintage Roberts radio. There is something about a good vintage radio on the kitchen dresser – I absolutely love my Emma Bridgewater radio that I got for Christmas (pictured above). I treated myself to some tulips to brighten up the kitchen, and I even managed to convince my husband to treat me to a new mixer in a lovely duck egg blue colour, ready for some baking.
I was also lucky enough to get a couple of hours to myself whilst James had some time off work, so I picked out a lovely new mint green nail varnish and gave myself a little manicure. I also dug out a nice nude pink lipstick for these brighter days.
Thanks to Good Housekeeping, I am feeling suitably spring-like. If we could have a little more sunshine and some slightly warmer temperatures it would be fabulous!
