Five Likes Tuesday

Source of inspiration. Beautiful seagulls, Cancun, Mexico.
My friend Ann's wedding cake.
Guacamole and flower tortillas that is perfect for a light lunch.
Morning coffee.
An Orange Cake with an Orange Butter cream filling, occasionally.

Tip. Treat yourself to something extravagant delicious anytime you're having a bad day. It is okay!

What are your five favourite things of the week? I'd love to hear. xx

Αγαπημένη μου Μπέττυ
Όλα μου αρέσουν!!!
Και ο καιρός που είναι χειμωνιάτικος, πολύ μου αρέσει!
Οι υπέροχες φωτογραφίες σου, με οδήγησαν στο ψυγείο και έφαγα λίγη τούρτα, που έφεραν τα παιδιά το Σαββατοκύριακο!
Πολλά φιλάκια

An eclectic mix amongst your likes, Betty.

My five:

2) Some quiet time of serenity when I collect my thoughts.
3) Looking at a favourite piece of art.
4) A kiss form a person that I love.
5) A kind word from a stranger.

Enjoy your weekend.

Emm said...

Wow, Betty. I love this. Inspiration from everywhere from Cancun to guacamole to your morning coffee! I love it. I love my time alone on the train to read my Kindle, having 30 minutes to spare to read in a coffee shop before work, taking some time at lunch to read again, and leaving work in the evening to finally go home (and to read again on the train!) When I am not involved with work, there is too much that I love to describe.

ritsa said...

That wedding cake looks so delicious, and the orange cake!!!

LadyFi said...

KikiMo said...
