TGIF! Hope you have plans for a lovely one (in fact, here's to no plans at all). I'm exhausted after a jam packed week, and so looking forward to a day off- I'm totally planning on doing a Romy Schneider (seen above, in a still from classic French movie La Piscine) listening to some jams and inspired by Michael Pollan's rad new Netflix series , maybe attempting my first sour dough loaf. Hoping you have a beautiful one, friends. See you on Monday.

Now you can colour in your very own RBG!

Oh to be this baby (doesn't this sound like the start of a great novel?)

A fantastic piece on why not writing is just as important as writing (via the ever-brilliant Dolly Mail)

YUM

I'm thoroughly enjoying this charming memoir

I feel like my baking game would be immediately upped by wearing this classic apron
