Hey guys! I hope you are all having a great week!
How awesome has the weather been in the UK! I’ve been absolutely loving it and have had a good few days lapping up the sunshine and topping up my vitamin D.
Like with most things in life with every positive there comes a negative, my negative being my hay fever. The pollen count has been sky high and has left me with flu like symptoms i.e. constant runny nose and congestion. Luckily I’ve had no itchy and watery eyes yet. I’m not going to let it beat me though I’ve still been enjoying the weather regardless.
And since it is Wednesday you all know what that means…
I wasn’t feeling my best on Monday morning as a result of my hay fever so I decided to skip my planned yoga session. I figured that a bunged up nose and yoga really wasn’t a great combination. Instead swapped sun salutations for a major wardrobe clear out.
It had been on the cards for a while, especially since I hadn’t worn any of the clothes that I had saved from my last wardrobe over haul. This time round I was quite brutal and got rid of anything that I hadn’t worn in the past months to a year or just didn’t fit in with my current style. It was also a great opportunity to stash away my heavy winter knits and coats. I have kept some thinner jumpers in my closet though as you never know with the weather in the UK.
These space saver bags are simply genius for stashing things away as you use a hoover to suck out the air so they become vacuum packed. I store duvets and all sorts in them.
After all of that hard work breakfast was well deserved. At the weekend I saw that some of the Dorset’s cereal was on offer in Tesco’s so I decided to treat myself to a box. I had a bowl of Simply Nutty muesli with a chopped pink lady apple and some green tea.
Mid morning I was feeling a little bit peckish so I decided to make myself a snack of raw baby carrots and cucumber and hummus.
This combo never gets old!
For lunch it could have been nothing but a salad as I have been craving them so much in this heat. This one was pretty epic…
It was made using lettuce leaves, tomatoes, beetroot, half and avocado, vegan cheese, cucumber and red peppers with a balsamic dressing, amazing!
Later in the afternoon I had to pop out to the Post Office so I decided to change out of my lounge around the house clothes and decided to make some sort of an effort.
OTTD: white vest top and coral baggy vest top, khaki 3/4 trousers: H&M, sandals: River Island, bow necklace and big earrings, Forever 21.
In the afternoon I fancied a smoothie but after chopping up the fruit and eyeing the Total Greek Yoghurt in my fridge I completely changed my mind. My lovely neighbour had given me some herbs and lettuce that she has grown herself early today and the scent form the mint was wafting through the air every time that I opened the fridge. So I decided to combine all three ingredients:
Mango, raspberries and blackberries with full fat Greek yoghurt and fresh mint. Holy yum! This was heavenly, the mint gave it a super fresh kick and a whole new dimension. I will definitely be adding fresh herbs to my fruit more often.
For dinner I wanted something quick so I just cooked some soya mince and mushrooms in a tomato sauce and used it to stuff a baked sweet potato. I had this with some steamed broccoli.
This tasted surprisingly good for a super speedy meal.
In the evening I raided my freezer for a raw treat:
My Raw Chocolate and Salted Caramel Hearts x 4 with some delicious cherries. These hearts taste amazing and it would be selfish of me not to share the recipe, so its coming soon!
Well a pretty good day of eats again where I managed to listen to what my body wanted and just went with it. It was so great clearing out my wardrobe and feeling all organised. I can actually navigate myself around my wardrobe so much more easier now! Strangely, I do love a good clear out now and then, it works wonders for my mind. Getting rid of old crap somehow clears my head too, weird I know.
When was the last time that you had a good wardrobe shake up?
Are you good at getting rid of things or are you a bit of a hoarder?
Do you find having a clear out as some sort of therapy like me?
