Summertime Goals

So one big thing has happened in the last couple of weeks, I’ve exchanged and completed on my first ever flat. It’s a dinky studio flat in Brighton and I couldn’t love it more. In time, once I’ve unpacked all the boxes and got rid of the lurid green paint (y tho?!), I’ll certainly show you around but for now I thought I’d share with you some of my summer goals now I’m in my new place.

Rekorderlig Cider recently asked me to bring a little ‘lagom’ into my life to celebrate the fact they are coming to Brighton next month for an event where you can sample their ciders. You may have read about 'lagom' at the beginning of the year – it’s the Swedish notion of living a life in moderation, ‘not too much, not too little – just right’. It’s actually an ethos that I’ve been interested in the last couple of months, especially when it comes to my new flat. It would be easy to get over-excited and just splurge on all the most expensive things for my new place but instead I want to appreciate the fact that I own my own little space and just be content in that. To me, that seems to be what ‘lagom’ stands for – a kind of contented simplicity. 

The recent beautiful weather has got me so excited for the summer and I can’t wait to spend some amazing time in my beautiful city. Bearing in mind the ‘lagom’ way of life, here are my summer goals for the season.

1. Enjoy my new place

I can’t wait to enjoy simple things in my new place. With the summer heat wave on, I’ve been out and about lots but there’s nothing like coming back in the evening, putting on some Netflix and having a cold bev or two. Rekordlig Cider sent me a bunch of delicious ciders so I’ve had them stocked up in the fridge, they’re a refreshing god-send when it’s warm out – my favourites are Mango-Raspberry and Passionfruit.

2. Don’t buy everything all at once

I need to remember the simplistic contentment of ‘lagom’ when it comes to making my new flat my home – it’s so easy to go mad on buying lots of new things but really I need to remember what is important and keep level-headed. I’ll be trying to invest in fewer, but better quality pieces that will hopefully last me for years and years.

3. Get out in the sunshine

Although it’s exciting to have my new place, it is summer after all so I need to take advantage of all that Brighton offers. I’ll be relaxing on the beach, enjoying the park that is just down the road from my new flat (basically my new garden!) and sitting enjoying the sun in pub gardens. If you’re in Brighton and you fancy a free drink, Rekordlig Cider is going to be in town on 1st July at Jubilee Street – fingers crossed the sunshine stays around for that!

4. Appreciate those around me

Finally, I’m going to keep on remembering how lucky I am to have the lovely people around me. I’ve had so much support from so many friends, old and new, throughout these stressful few months that I’m going to spend the summer make sure they know how much they mean to me.

There’s a bunch of samplings happening all around the UK with Rekordlig where you can get your hands on some of their lovely cider – here are the dates:

Box Park Shoreditch, London – 15th June
Molson Coors HQ – 22nd June
High Street, Birmingham – 24th June
Gunwharf, Portsmouth – 30th June
Jubilee Street, Brighton – 1st July
Rose Lane, Canterbury – 2nd July
Queen Street, Cardiff – 6th July
