Pink Julep Weekender - May 15, 2015

Don't miss out on these five fabulous things this weekend… Which one will you do first?

  1. Watch: If you haven't yet seen Far From the Madding Crowd starring Carey Mulligan, then you simply must! I like to describe this film a a British version of Gone With the Wind… It's a lovely story, a beautiful movie and a captivating romance. Add the gorgeous costumes and hairstyles to it and there's not much more a girl could want out of a Friday night!
  2. Watch: My husband and I started watching Bloodline on Netflix this week… Oh my goodness it's addictive! This family has so many secrets and the longer they spend time together, the more than comes out… Well worth a watch, but don't be surprised if you spend the weekend binge watching all the episodes at once!
  3. Listen: If you haven't yet heard the new album Wilder Mind by Mumford & Sons, now's the time… I'll warn you though, this is no foot stompin banjo blarin bluegrass album. The boys have a new sound that totally works for them, proving that they're not just a one-trick pony. Click here to listen to Wilder Mind on Spotify.
  4. Do: May is #cookbookamnesty month! Donate your unwanted cookbooks to Beyond Food Foundation, a London charity that helps people at risk of or who have experienced homelessness to gain employment in the food industry.   In return, they will offer you a 2 for 1 voucher for dinner at Brigade Bar and Bistro to use before the end of June. Feel free to personalize your donations with a message for the future recipient written inside. Just drop of the book at Brigade (139 Tooley Street, London Bridge, SE1 2HZ) where there's a bookshelf in the front. Alternatively, mail your book to Beyond Food Foundation, 2nd Floor, The Fire Station, 139 Tooley Street, London, SE1 2HZ. It's a great cause and you can put your old, unused cookbooks to work doing something great for someone in need that might actually change their life for good.  Click here for more information on how to participate in Beyond Food Cookbook Amnesty. 
  5. Watch: I'll be the first to admit that The Age of Adaline is only okay as far as films go, but it's interesting enough to be fun and well worth the price of admission for the costumes, beauty and hair! I was marveling at Blake Lively's looks throughout the film and while it won't win any Oscars, I enjoyed it immensely.
