A Week in Pictures 14/03/16

This week was a preeetty good week. For the first week in a long time I feel like I’ve actually got some stuff worth blogging about *high five*!

There’s been eating out again, cocktails again, some new purchases and OMG new hair. Life is goooood.

Taco Tuesday:

This is the best way to spend a Tuesday. Definitely. Went back to Benson Blakes in Bury St Edmunds because it’s closing soon-ish which is seriously depressing, so we needed to get in at least one more Taco Tuesday. And it did not disappoint. Probably ate far too much for a Tuesday evening but it was totes worth it. And 2 cocktails on a school night? I’m so hardcore.

  
Hello Victoria’s Secret:

Victoria’s Secret has opened in Cambridge. I repeat, Victoria’s Secret has opened in Cambridge. Major excitement went through work on the opening day and we all popped over for a cheeky look in our lunch breaks. I bought some very pretty new underwear (5 for £20 = bargain) and with every purchase you got a free Victoria’s Secret Dog ❤ and a gift card. The gift card is exciting as each one has a minimum of £10 loaded onto it, but it could have up to £500. From the 29th March you go back and they tell you how much is on it. Can’t bloody wait.

Dark Hair Don’t Care:

For years I had light blonde hair, then about a year and a half a go I took a massive step and went a bit darker. And I was extremely scared when I did so. Now I’m so over worrying about my hair colour. I simply rock up and my friends house and she does something. Obviously she doesn’t just go crazy and she is a hair dresser so it’s all fine. But this time I went the darkest I’ve been, and it’s broken up with a few highlights and low lights. And it’s my favourite colour I’ve ever had on my hair.

Propercorn:

Thanks to the beauts over at O2, I got a free packet of Propercorn on O2 Priority. Fancy flavours of popcorn have always looked good but I’ve always been a bit unsure. I went for Coconut and Vanilla and OMG it’s delish. Anyone who knows me knowns I’m a huge coconut fan, and this is just perfecto. I’m a changed woman.

Parents Pub Lunch:

Sunday was spent eating cake, then going for a late pub lunch with my parents in a pub in the middle of no-where over-looking a river. Very cute. Can’t wait to go in the summer when you can sit outside. We then went home and I spent the evening sitting in a food coma.

A Week in Pictures 07/03/2016

Life’s hard when you’re trying to save money isn’t it? I wish I could fill this post with a load of exciting things I’ve done over the last week, however I’ve been pretty tame and boring. There’s no fancy meals out or cocktails or champers with the girls. Growing up and being sensible sucks. There is a cheeky new bag though ❤

Work Treats:

Now this just had to be included in this weeks round up because look… It’s ridiculous. We had a stressful day one day, so the next day everyone turned up with treats without realising everyone else had brought treats in. It was unreal. The bad part of it is, most of this went within a day or two 😐 #awks

NEW BAG ALERT:

JUST LOOK AT IT. I’m honestly in love with this bag. I had a voucher for John Lewis so it hasn’t even affected my poor bank balance at all, and basically means I got a free DKNY bag, right?  Probs could have bought some kind of essential item with the voucher instead, but the shopaholic in me won. It IS very practical as It’s a lot bigger than it looks, and I can fit my purse, hair brush, sunglasses, some make-up, my keys and my phone in it comfortably.

Beaut Sunday Weather:

Wasn’t Sunday just lush? The sun was out, there was hardly any breeze which made it feel warm, and not a drop of rain in sight. Perfect weather for a walk and quick stop off in the pub beer garden. But it’s majorly made me desperate for summer. Seriously, where the Pimms and BBQs at???

A Week in Pictures 29/02/16

This ‘Week in Pictures’ is a bit meh. I didn’t get up to as many small things so it’s a tad short and sweet this time round. Sorry guys, life’s not always exciting. I’ll try harder this week *promise*

 

Tuesday Cinema Date

Tuesday night Pete and I had a little date night to the cinema. We saw Grimsby which I think I liked but I’m sure? I defo laughed. And cringed. But anyway, the highlight was trying out the new Vue chairs and OMG they are amazing. You can almost lay down, have a lap tray for all your food and basically feel like you’re at home in your bedroom. And for dinner I had a Ben & Jerries core sundae which was yum.

 

 

Hot Chocolate and Cake

No week is complete without a little trip to a coffee shop, and last weeks lucky winner was Starbucks. You NEED to try their hot chocolate made with coconut milk. It basically tastes like a bounty. Uh huh. Thank me later.

 

 

Saturday Night Vibes

Last but definitely not least, Saturday night was spent these beautiful people. We ate food and drank wine and had an all round good evening. And I didn’t even have a wine  headache the next day! So not a single bad thing about the evening.

 

A Week in Pictures 22/02/16

I’ve been rubbish with this post again this week. I started it, then got distracted with another post. Got my days muddled. Then oh look it’s Thursday and I’m only just writing up what happened last week. My bad.

As per the normal trend it’s pretty much made up of food and eating out, which is great for me and not so great for my beach body.

Enjoy!

Alimentum

You may have read my whole post on this already (if you haven’t, you should!), but it really deserves another mention. It was so nice to get try lots of different and fancy foods, and to tell people I’m classy enough to go to a Michelin Star restaurant, obvs. So posh.

 


 

Scenic Lunch Break

The last couple of weeks I’ve had to work in Ely a couple of times instead of Cambridge. I used to work in Ely a few years a go so it’s been quite nice to be back, even if it is a lot smaller and quieter. It’s a cute little city famous for it’s Cathedral, and I had a little wander around it’s grounds on one of my lunch breaks to add a bit of culture to the day.

 

Afternoon Tea

And being in Ely reminded me of some of the pretty little places you can go. So Pete and I went for afternoon tea at Peacocks Tearoom. It’s right by the river and all the crockery is mis-matched so it’s literally the cutest place ever. The lemon and lavender cake was unreal! We may have had our afternoon tea at approx. 11:30am but we were starving! Don’t judge.

New Bag

How cute is this bag!? I got it from Dorothy Perkins and it’s only £28. The handles are a really good length, it’s big enough to fit like everything I need for work in it including my lunch, and it has a pom-pom. Winning. I also think it looks a lot more expensive than a Dorothy Perkins bag which is always a perk.

 

 

Pizza with the Girls

The week finished off nicely with a trip to Prezzo with the girls on Sunday evening for a couple of wines, a gossip and; of course, pizza. It may have left me a tad tired for the Monday morning start but it was defo worth it 🙂

A Week in Pictures 15th Feb 16

There’s a slight theme to this weeks ‘Week in Pictures’. I know food usually features fairly heavily in my weekly round-up but this last week there was just so much food. So much that one meal out isn’t even in here because I was too hungry to even think about photographing it. Someone needs to ban me from eating out, I actually think I have a problem.

Lol got at least 2 meals out this week, whatya gonna do?

Did a couple of other things, but yeah, my week basically in food:

Indian with an Indian:

One of my best friends moved to London last year, but this week she was back so we met up and did our favourite thing other than drinking… eating. (May have had a glass of wine each too, but that’s pretty tame for us!)

Gluten Free Pho’:

My friend Charlie met me after work one evening and she’s coeliac so eating out can be quite difficult for her, but we stumbled across this new Vietnamese restaurant in Cambridge and we LOVED it. She could eat everything on the menu except for one dessert, and it was all so delish. It was my first experience to Vietnamese food too and I didn’t really know what to expect, but was very pleased with our discovery.

Ray Bans First Appearance:

When I went to Vienna for my birthday in November I bought a pair of Ray Bans in the airport, but since I bought them it hasn’t been sunny once so I haven’t had a chance to wear them. So was a tad excited when I was FINALLY able to. Sad, I know.

New Colouring Pens:

Ha. I’m such a child. But I got new pens for my colouring book! I’ve been using pencils as my book has quite large pictures to colour but there are some really swirly pictures too, so I bought some pens. God I sound old. Moving on…

Girls Night:

Redeeming myself slightly here, I got drunk on Saturday. We’d had this girls night planned for some time and it didn’t disappoint. We started off quietly in a bar drinking wine and gossiping, we then got a tad loud and started speaking to random people on the table next to us. Then oh, next thing we know it’s 2am and we’re doing shots in the club. Standard.

Recovery Nandos:

Best thing to do after a night drinking? A recovery nandos, followed by cinema with the boyf. Life’s good.

A Week (or 2) in Pictures

Okay, so technically this is 2 weeks in pictures. I didn’t get round to doing one last week as I was pretty poorly with an awful cold, and basically just struggs with life in general. So now that I’m back to my best and actually able to string a sentence together I’ve combined 2 weeks into 1 post. Exciting stuff, I know!

Mahoosive Burger at Rockers – Cambridge

This was dinner on Monday 1st of Feb, courtesy of the boyf. No real reason for it but mannnn was it good. Like, so good. Probably not the healthiest meal to start your week off with but whatcha gonna do?

Bath with Bomb Cosmetic Bath Bombs

This was the Tuesday evening and my first evening of feeling a tad poorly. So I had THE nicest, longest bath and majorly chillaxed. This bath bomb from bomb cosmetics (can’t remember the flavour, soz) smelled delish and made me feel relaxed and happy and snug.

Feeling Sorry for Myself

For pretty much the next 6 days I felt HORRID. So yeah, I just sat on the sofa whilst cuddling my dog and feeling proper sorry for myself. Mollies great for making ya feel better though ❤ even if she does look sad to be cuddling with me!

Pancake Day

Lol these pancakes look awful. But they were taaaasty. Defo ate a weeks calories in pancakes #soznotsoz

Catch up with the Girls

Just what I needed. What’s better than gossip and Prosecco on a Wednesday? Like, seriously. Nothing is. After a pretty shitty week or so I left my friends feeling so much happier and buzzing about life again.

Making Peter do Facemasks

This was SO FUN. He’d stupidly promised me he’d do it and haaaa I ensured it happened. He gave it all the ‘this is so stupid’ and ‘why are you making me do this’ manly crap, but I know that secretly he loved it. I could just tell. He especially liked the fact his one peeled off, said it was like peeling his face off. So yeah, great. Only down side was that his one was clear so I couldn’t take a pic of us looking megs cute. Bad times.

Valentines Day

I’m gonna do a whole post on this because it so deserves it. So not to spoil it all I’ll be brief. Pete and I spent the day wandering around Centre Parcs which was so cute, and he bought me a dozen red roses and tickets to go and see The Woman in Black in London. Couldn’t be happier. Just perfect.

A Week in Pictures – 25th Jan 16

Okay, okay, okay. I’ve been incredibly rubbish this last week and not actually posted anything. I know. Bad times.

It was just one of those weeks where 434566540 things happened and all of a sudden it was like, whoa! It’s Tuesday again already and I need to do a weekly re-cap. Time does just fly. Lol.

Butttt I already know I’m gonna be better at it this week so I guess that *kinda* makes up for it. Right?

Here’s a few pics of what I got up to last week…

New Pandora Ring

How beaut is this? Like seriously. It’s so cute. It was a thank you present for house sitting from my friend and her fiancé and I love it. Pretty sure jewellery would make every girl smile.

Baby Oleg Toy

Basically just including this because OMG how adorable is it and I’ve wanted one for ages and I FINALLY got one. Thanks boyf ❤

Girlie Drinks on Friday

What’s the best thing to do on a Friday evening? Casual drinks of course! I was designated driver this time *sob* as I also had work on Saturday, but was nice to have a couple of hours out in the pub with the girls. And I definitely made up for the lack of drinking on Saturday night…

Out Out in London

My friend moved to London early last year and I’ve been to see her 3 or 4 times so far, and she’s been back home a couple of times. We always spend far too long getting ready to go out as we’re so busy filling each other in on all the gossip, but when we finally make it out we have the best nights. Just a shame they can’t be more often.

Sunday Morning Pancakes

Best way to start a Sunday? Breakfast. Nutella pancakes to be precise. Luckily my friend is as much of a foodie as me so first thing on the agenda is always food. And a good cup of tea, of course.

Massive Photo Delivery

As  you may know, one of my aims for the year was to print off all my photos this year. There’s just something much more meaningful about actually holding a photograph compared to seeing it on the screen. This was my first order of pics – 122 photos! But I did go back to around October time. Now that I’m going to keep on top of it it wont be as many each time. But it definitely finished off my weekend nicely to sit and look through all of these.
