Little updates (a big catch up!)

Well it's been a little while hasn't it? Time for a rather massive catch up on what I've been up to through the eyes of my Instagram...

Cinnamon rolls fresh from the oven - nom!  I didn't make these though, they're ones you buy frozen from Ikea and just bake for 15 minutes or so.   Very lush.

Cinnamon buns fresh out of the oven - the smell is amazeballs

Boots hauling and taking advantage of the 3 for 2s

Today's Boots haul

Treating ourselves to a lazy dinner in a box from M&S

Love getting dinner from m&s

My fave tree outside my window.  It only blooms in Spring and the blossoms have nearly all gone already :(

Love these trees in Spring, first thing I see when I wake up

Random lobster crisps - they just tasted like prawn cocktail really


Rocking my beautiful princess carriage necklace from Peaches Boutique and don't forget to enter my giveaway to win their Carousel necklace 

My outfit today was all about the necklace! It's from @peachesboutuk

Cooking a scrum carbonara for my mates - all before I gave up carbs of course!

Girls' night in :)

I've been re-arranging my closet with new rails and new matching hangers - I have so much more space!

Time to fill my new storage racks :)

Finding new ways to wear my birdie necklace from H&M


I went to the Nails Inc event this week.  I had major issues getting there what with my train getting stuck for an hour outside London Bridge, getting lost and caught in the rain but it was all worth it to see beauts like this Jubilee polish.  I'll be doing a full post on this soon.  

This is Nails inc Jubilee - love it

Ordered some more Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish - my all time fave

Ordered some backup @lizearle from @johnlewisretail on Easter Sunday and it came today #impressed

Pretty glitter cupcakes at the Aussie event 


My little brother's pirate birthday cake

Pirate acupuncture

So I got him a matching pirate balloon! 

Piratey brother

Amazeballs Chinese food (again, before I started eating healthily!) 

Salt and chilli squid oh yeah

Easter cakes I made for my work

Easter cakes for back to work

My OCD is not liking the fact that I picked the wrong border for this next one!  A week ago I gave up eating the main carbs (bread, rice, pasta, potatoes) as well as junk in an attempt to eat really healthily instead of following any particular diet.  So far so good, the boyf rated this dinner 10 out of 10 and I lost 4.5lbs last week =)


Here's a few more of the super healthy meals I've been having

Super healthy curry cooked by @boshmeister :)

Lunch :)

Chicken and mango salad kinda day

Making a scrummy lunch

Nomster breakfast

If I can keep up the healthy eating and lose again next week, I'll probably do a post on exactly what I've cut out and what I've been eating.

I hope you're all having a fab weekend.  I sat down to start blogging last night and found my laptop had got a virus :(  My Brother works in IT so is a bit handy with these things, so luckily it was fixed by this evening.  I'm so annoyed about all that blogging time I've missed.  In good news though, I got up nice and early this morning for the boot fair and made a fab £150 =)
