The perfect mid-week pick-me-up

Wednesday, 5 February 2014

Sometimes, you need a mid-week pick-me-up. 

A distraction from the fact that the weekend is a distant dream and you still have a mountain of work to rattle through. Particularly as the dark evenings draw in and summer is still about as distant as Machu Picchu.

I have three things to aid your survival.

1. Download some folk
Download the bold vocals of folk’s finest new voice, Samantha Crain, selecting the track Kid Face for 99p. Pretend you’re swaying around in a cornfield in the midst of summer with hair down to your waist.

2.  Make photo art
Make a memory and get creative with the arty A Beautiful Mess app available for 69p from the app store, from the creators of the blog themselves. Those who know me know that I love photography (you can read some of my articles here) and my opinions on the fact that we don’t record fleeting moments enough. There is no excuse with this app as it’s packed full of doodles, fonts and filters that make Instagram look plain simple.

3. Drink fresh coffee
Boost your energy levels with a hit of caffeine (come on, there are still two days left until Saturday) from Pact, a new London start-up which delivers fresh coffee. The Simple Things magazine is offering readers a discount code available here, which allows you to order a 250g bag of coffee for £1. The usual price is £6.95…mine is well and truly on it’s way.

For £2.68 you can:
Sip fresh coffee. Enjoy a quality new tune. Create some photo art.

Enjoy x
