Sleep

Winchcombe, The Cotswolds


Something wonderful happened last month.

Something which hadn't ever happened to me before, as far as I could remember.

Something that will make some people squirm with jealousy, others roll their eyes and shrug with indifference, and a select few weep at the thought of this luxury just beyond their reach.

Here it is, my wicked, delicious truth:

For a whole week, I slept for 8 hours every night.

I don't know how it happened. It wasn't on purpose, and I hadn't made any special arrangements. Obviously, Mr Maggie May and I always aim to get to bed early so we can have that textbook amount of sleep during the week, but despite our good intentions, it never actually happens.

But it did happen. It just happened. And I could not believe how much of an effect it had on me.

City Guide to Copenhagen

City Guide to Copenhagen

I couldn't resist sharing one last post about Copenhagen with you all.

Call me obsessed, but this city deserves a decent amount of air time! I've already talked about highlights such as Rosenborg Slot, Christiansborg Palace, Torvehallerne Food Market, and the Design Museum Danmark - but believe it or not, there are still a few treasures to add to your must-see list...

Valentine's Day Gift Guide 2017

Ah, love.

L-O-V-E love.

L is for life. I mean, what is life without love?

OK, OK, I'll stop quoting Ross from Friends now {if you have no idea what I'm on about, maybe catch up here} But with Valentine's Day just around the corner, it's time to share my annual V-Day post!

Whether you want to send some gift suggestions to your fella {hint - just click the 'share' buttons at the end of this post!}, or treat one of your bezzies to a Galentine's present, there are plenty of gorgeous, luxurious and simply special ideas to inspire you.

Mr MM and I will be spending this year at home - we're going to open a fancy bottle of wine we have been saving, cook a delicious meal together, and have a cosy night in. I can't wait! Do you have any exciting plans with your other half or gal pals?

If you don't have any plans, no problem - I'd recommend running a hot bath with your favourite bubbles, ripping into a box of chocolates, and sticking some feel-good movies on {Dirty Dancing, Bridget Jones' Diary, and Notting Hill all spring to mind} My philosophy is that every 14th February should be spoil-yourself day, no matter what your relationship status.

Happy Valentine's Day for next week!
