Happy Friday! I’m so happy that it’s the weekend again! My week has been neither here or there, nothing particularly exciting, but this weekend I have lots to look forward to! Tomorrow night is Alfie’s Grad Ball which includes a 5 course formal dinner and then I have a wedding to go to on Sunday. Since this weekend is going to involve lots of rushing around I thought I would take today off from studying and have a laid back day shopping, getting my cleaning out of the way and getting ready for the weekend.
My relaxed day started with a trip to the gym very early in the morning to get it out of the way. I did a 30 minute run on the treadmill followed by 30 minutes across the cross trainer, step machine and the bike. Also, I got in an abs and core workout too.
Now a super shopping trip requires a some kick ass fuel, so for breakfast I had a huge bowl of my favourite cereals all mixed together. I was in a bit of a fix and didn’t wanted to eat everything- so I did!
This bowl included Lizzi’s granola, Kashi Go Lean Crisp, Peanut Butter Puffins a chopped apple, frozen blueberries and oat milk. This bowl is full of my favourite cereals. The Kashi cereal is lovely and PB Puffins really need no explanation- PERFECTION!
I picked up some awesome things in Birmingham. There is just so much choice and so many shops, I didn’t know where to start…
I love this coat so much!!!! The fact that it was reduced from £100 to £50 makes me adore it even more. I’ve tried it on a thousand times already and the tailoring is lovely. Once on the bottom half of the coat fans out like a full skirt…
I was also going to buy a navy blazer from Zara, but thought that I would save that as a treat for next month. Of course with all that shopping I had to eat, so I picked up 2 salad pots from Marks & Spencer’s and snacked on a tonne of fruit.
Once home and after unpacking my shopping haul it was time for dinner…
This seriously was a huge salad. It included mixed salad leaves, steamed broccoli and cauliflower, courgettes, butternut squash, tomatoes and crunchy bites with a tahini dressing. The dressing as made by mixing tahini, water and some sweet chilli sauce…yum!
For dessert I whizzed up a small bowl of Choco, PB and Nana Pudding. I haven’t had this in ages and I’m so glad that I made some tonight. I had totally forgotten how much I love it!
I’m dying for the sunny weather comes back so I can wear all of the summer clothes I have been buying. Hopefully it doesn’t take too long to return. This weekend is going to be really busy, but so much fun!
What are you up to this weekend? What was the last bargain that you picked up on a shopping trip?
