A couple of weekends ago I jumped on a train to Chichester, meeting Millie, Beth and Rosie on the way, where we headed to Jo Malone (based in House of Fraser) for a wonderful afternoon to celebrate the launch of their latest fragrances; English Oak and Redcurrant and English Oak with Hazelnut ♥
It’s not really a secret that I’m a bit of a homebody. I much prefer pottering round the house of a weekend than being out in clubs or going to loud parties and feeling rubbish the next day!!
Saturday evenings are my absolute favourite because there’s no work the next day and I know that I don’t have to go anywhere; a bonus especially when it’s raining or cold outside 🙂
There’s nothing better than putting on the side lamp, cosying up on the sofa with J (under our massively super soft chocolate brown blanket) and chilling out watching TV or a film ♥
Recently I finally got to meet Violet, Lyndsay‘s beautiful little girl. I can’t believe she’s six months old already!! We decided we were going to meet up over brunch, so what better place to do it than the new and improved Redroaster at the bottom of St James’ Street?
It was my birthday on Sunday and was a really lovely one. I used to have really awful birthdays (lots of drink, lots of crying, lots of getting frustrated with “friends”) until I started going out with J. Now I have amazing, quiet, chilled out birthdays, so I thought I’d share what I got up to this year!
Hey lovelies, how’s it going? I’m so sorry I’ve been super quiet on social media recently. I’ve just started a new job and I get no signal in my building (unless I stand right in the corner looking like a twat!) The good news is that I absolutely love my job; it’s keeping me super busy so the days go really quickly!!
I really dislike eating bananas. There, I said it. I hate the smell, the taste and the texture.
That being said though, I love those little foam banana sweets, having blended bananas in my morning smoothies and banana loaf. Recently, I bought way too many bananas and instead of them going to waste, I thought I’d put them to good use and make a banana loaf (with a surprise inside!)
I was going to say that it feels like ages and ages since I did one of these, then I realised that’s because it is; I last did a favourites post back in April!! But I’m back this month because there have been plenty of things I’ve been using, wearing, eating, and of course, loving!!
Last week I had the opportunity to attend the soft launch of their lastest cocktail bar in Brighton. Located at the bottom of West Street and attached to PRYZM, it honestly feels a million miles away from the usual connotations of “just another West Street bar”. For those of you not from Brighton, think of that one street in your town where you never want to go down at night because it’s full of clubbers, people throwing up and girls dropping chips all over the floor while trying to pull their knickers out of their bums. Just sayin’.
I’ll let you in on a secret. I much prefer autumn and winter but only because I’m lazy. Hear me out though; I make weekday lunches for me and J every day and it’s so easy to buy cheapy cans of soup from Asda, but in the hotter months, I actually have to put a little bit of effort in!
Recently though, I’ve stumbled on some really simple and easy-to-make recipes which we’ve been absolutely loving, so I’m sharing them with you, in case you’re looking for some summer lunch inspiration 🙂
I have a “not so secret” secret. I’m a habitual snacker, especially when I’m at work. I start off doing really well and not succumbing to the 11am biscuit. I dutifully drink loads of water and clap myself on the back for doing so well. I eat my somewhat healthy lunch and usually save a clementine for that 3pm slump.
