This weekend has been pretty fantastio! This is mainly because it has involved lots of my favourite things.
The most amazing oats!
This was my breakfast on Friday, Chocolate Bounty Banana Oats. These were so good and really easy to make. They included oats, unsweetened cocoa powder, water and coconut milk and topped with goji berries and dried mulberries, absolute heaven!
Yesterday we got up really early and headed to Bicester Village to beat the morning rush of traffic. Since we got up so early we decided to treat ourselves to breakfast.
Grilled panettone with Roobios tea!
This is a new one for me and Alfie as we often go out for lunch and dinner, but we have never been out on a breakfast date. It felt like such a treat, definitely something I could get accustomed too!
It was quite a bright and sunny morning so I decided to make the most of the sun.
OOTD: white vest top: H&M, butterfly top: Zara, skinny jeans: H&M, wedges: Sole, bag: Mulberry.
It did get a little bit chilly when the sun went in but I came well prepared with a cardigan.
Overall it was a very successful shopping trip as we got a new suit for Alfie plus cufflinks for the big day. We were also supposed to get his wedding shoes too, but they were out of his size, doh! Maybe next time?
I also got a few bits for myself too:
A lovely Hamilton Tote from Michael Kors to go with my rehearsal dinner and going away outfits.
A new umbrella nas my other one is completely crap!
Some pretty floral PJs!
I’m just in love with that bag. Although it was a lot more than I was looking to spend on a bag it’s something that I will get so much use out of, you just can’t go wrong with a tan bag. It will go with everything.
I’ve also been enjoying some delicious food this weekend too.
Blueberry, banana and apple smoothie made with water and almond milk.
A huge plate loaded with salad with mixed salad leaves, red pepper, chick peas, red onion, tomatoes and caramelised onion hummus. Bit of a chick pea addiction with this salad, love!
Figs, red grapes and Greek yoghurt.
Alfie’s mum came over on Friday night and supplied us with lots of Ghanaian home cooking, including Jollof rice. I had some with two steamed eggs, steamed broccoli and plantain.
Movie snacking: the most sweetest strawberries, Trader Joe’s 85% dark chocolate and raw chocolate covered goji berries.
I’m not going to list my workouts as they were pretty much the same as last week except for the addition of the fab 3,2,1 workout on Tuesday.
It really has been a lovely weekend! After our shopping trip we cosied up on the sofa and watched a The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. I’ve read the Steig Larsson trilogy a little while ago and thought it was fantastic, but had yet to watch the movie starring Daniel Craig. I have to say that it was fantastic! I don’t usually like book adaptions but this one was pretty good. Alfie hasn’t read the books and he really enjoyed the movie too.
I even fitted in a bit of pampering too and painted my nails with Essie’s Tart Deco.
Have you seen The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo? What did you think? Have you read the books?
When was the last time you splurged and treated yourself?
