Weekly Favourites #19

Sorry this post is a bit late but I blame the sunny weather and long weekend! Last week we got a juicer so the evenings were spent combining different vegetables and fruits to see what concoctions we could create - sad I realise! On Thursday we had some people round for a big boozy casoulet which we slow cooked for over 12 hours, the smell when you walked in from a busy day at work was incredible! Our friends didn't leave until the early hours so work was a bit of a struggle the next day! 

The long weekend has been one where I threw caution to the wind and splurged on all the things I have been longing for over the last few months - very naughty! On Saturday I went for a stroll along Oxford Street, which was surprisingly quiet for a weekend and then went out for a rather disappointing meal at Bodeans. On Sunday I met my friend for some more shopping on the Kings Road before going to The Orange for Prosecco and to soak up the sunshine - absolute bliss. This is such a beautiful spot that is so close to Sloane Square, the food looked incredible too! We then joined the boys for a delicious dinner, which they kindly prepared. Today I went back to Sloane Square with the boy so I could finally spend my vouchers and get an iPad mini. I have been wanting one for such a long time as my Macbook Pro is so heavy to carry around! Though  my indecisive nature has already emerged and I am wondering whether I should have saved and purchased a better camera. Better not dwell on it...

Photographs: Picky lunches - my favourite // Naughty iPad purchase // Wish I lived in one of these houses in London // Homemade brunch // Very misty walk to work // Favourite trousers of the week // Tulips // Prosecco // Another naughty purchase - Dim Infusion is just too beautiful! 

Posts this week have included: Steak, Kale & Miso Soup Recipe // The 5 product Spring face // The repurchase: Alpha H Liquid Gold

Favourite post: I love Kirstie's blog and her post on the awful fashion trends we all went through whilst growing up had tears rolling down my cheeks. If you grew up in the nineties then you have to read this brilliant post, here! 

Favourite product: I am still loving my Nars Sheer Glow mixed with my L'Oreal Lumi Magique to give it that extra glow. It is such a beautiful combination and I cannot recommend it enough. See my full thoughts here

Hope you have all had a good week too!

    1. I am so glad you like them! I love writing them as it is a bit like keeping a diary but sometimes I wonder if anyone else enjoys reading them! X
