The bank holiday weekend is here mamas! With 4 fabulously free days to play with, we think the long Easter weekend is the perfect opportunity to put your feet up, and indulge in a bit of relaxing me time. Why not try your hand at some Easter baking, soak in a luxurious bubble bath, or treat yourself to some brand new maternity clothes… you’re pregnant – you deserve it!
A delicious springtime treat; nothing says happy Easter like the smell of freshly baked hot cross buns wafting through the house. Richly spiced dough tumbled through with plump juicy currents & plenty of zest; these buns are perfect for toasting, buttering & enjoying with a good book & a steamy pot of earl grey.
We love the look of this recipe from Thanh at Eat little bird.
And how about something sensational (and alcohol-free!) to toast the holiday… whether you’re entertaining or enjoying a quiet Easter at home, why not mix up a batch of fruity mocktails to spread a little sunshine! We can’t get enough of this raspberry peach ice tea from Chungah at Damn Delicious. Or for something with a little more zing, try this ginger lemonade from Annalise at Completely Delicious.
After all that culinary exertion, you’ll have earned a break. And every girl knows there’s no better way to relax than to lie back, indulge & soak in a beautifully scented bubble bath! Luckily, LUSH have got you covered with a fabulous new range of spring bath bombs, melts & bubble bars to add an effervescent touch of luxury to your soak.

For the Kids
Make sure to plan some fun Easter themed activities to keep the little ones entertained over the weekend. An Easter egg hunt will be a big hit with kids of all ages, and if you’re feeling crafty why not have a go at making Easter bonnets. And of course you can’t go wrong in the kitchen with these no-bake chocolate cornflake crispie nests from the BBC good food site.
