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 ❤
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???
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.
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.
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.
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 🙂
