The (Long) Weekend Reading List and a Spring Break

The Weekend Reading List

The Weekend Reading List is coming to you a day early, this week, because of the weekend’s Easter celebrations. What do you have planned? I’m celebrating a friend’s birthday with karaoke and cocktails on Saturday, and then have a family lunch on Sunday.

I’ll also be taking next week off, so there won’t be any new content up on Coco’s Tea Party until April 9th, when regular posting will resume. (The Let’s Discuss podcast will be going out on Tuesday as always, however).

As you know, last year I suffered with a few bouts of burnout. And I’m trying to avoid falling into the same patterns, this year, by taking a week off every three months. The last few weeks have been fun but rather hectic – as I’ve been producing blog content, podcasts and lecturing at University for the Creative Arts – so I’m really looking forward to this little break.

I hope you have a wonderful Easter weekend, and I’m excited to kick off my spring blog content on April 9th. See you then…

The wonderful team at boutique perfumery brand, Shay & Blue, recently invited me to star in their latest video campaign.

  1. Love this curation of interesting blog posts which have all been promptly added to my weekend reading list!
    I’m glad to hear you’re taking a break to take care of yourself – I fee like we could all take a leaf out of your book so to speak and find more time to prioritise our wellbeing during such busy times. I hope you have a relaxing break and I look forward to your return! 🙂

    Also, your collaboration video is stunning – such beautiful content.

    I always look forward to your reading list ! I really recommend the plan of a week off every 3 months . I have had to adjust my own schedule due to a serious bout of physical and mental exhaustion. Prevention is the best medicine !
