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 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.
