Weekly Favourites # 21


I got the Liberty Nikes! I was so excited when these arrived and they have not left my feet since, they are just so beautiful. I have also tried to be good this week and juice lots. Originally I was going to do the Jason Vale 3 day detox, but by Wednesday I caved when my boyfriend cooked me a delicious meal of chicken wrapped in parma ham with asparagus. I liked juicing and will definitely continue to have one in the mornings but I did start to miss actual eating!  

On Friday the sun was shinning so I went to a friend's flat who has a gorgeous balcony and we sat watching the sun set while drinking Aperol cocktails and snacking on crisps and homemade guacamole. Once the boys arrived we headed to Joint in Brixton Village for incredible pulled pork burgers with brioche buns! I will be writing a more in-depth post soon. The night then escalated and we ended up in Dogstar, a bar/club which plays lots of old hip hop. It was a brilliant unexpected night and I laughed so much! 

On Saturday I went out for a friends birthday and had delicious cocktails - G&T with fresh raspberries, definitely try it! We then recovered today in the park, relaxing in the gorgeous sunshine. It has been such a lovely week and when the sun is shinning London is so beautiful. Lets hope it is here to stay and the weatherman is wrong!

Posts this week have included: Grilled Chicken, Chilli, Lemon and Mint Recipe;    Manuka Doctor Bee Venom Samples;  Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush in Dim Infusion 

Favourite post: I loved Anna and Marks Q & A on Youtube this week, see video  here. It is always nice to get to know more about the people you read about which is why I have added some pictures of myself and friends this week! 

Favourite product: This week it has to be the Cocoa Brown Tanning Mousse. I am completely useless when it comes to tanning and would much rather be pale than have orange streaks. I used to love the gradual tanning moisturisers but hate the smell and I also have white towels and bedsheets - not ideal! This mousse is amazing though. Incredibly easy to apply and the results are amazing. No streaks or orange patched in sight, instead a very natural looking tan that fades gradually as the week progresses. Buy it in Superdrug for £7.99!

Hope you have all had a good week too!
