Free Ice Cream, New Nails and Birthday Fun

We’re one week down in my crazy fortnight and it’s been really fun so far! You know those weeks where you just seem to have so much on and it all comes at once – that’s right now for me, which is great but tiring none-the-less! This week we’ve been making a real conscious effort to eat better and move more as a warm up for us joining the gym again next month. I’ve really been enjoying being creative with my food and getting out the house for an hour a day walking Wilson and competing with Joe for steps on our new Fitbits – more on those soon!


On Monday I went to see East is East with a lovely friend and on Wednesday we had free ice cream at work which I really appreciated and enjoyed as a little mid-week treat. Thursday was a long day at work with lots of driving which required a giant coffee on the way home and I even managed to find a spare half an hour to paint my nails for the first time in forever – I forgot how fun it was and how happy a bit of glitter can make a girl!

This weekend was spent filming videos, editing photos and making healthy but yummy food to keep us away from the takeaway menu! I whipped up a killer Spinach and Chickpea Curry, Smoked Salmon and Avocado Skinny Bagels and a healthy Full English which meant that we could really enjoy our cheat meal out for Joe’s Dad’s 60th on Saturday. We got dolled up and headed out on the town with his mum and dad for an evening of great food, lots of fizz and dancing until the early hours – they’re a terrible influence on us! Yesterday was spent finishing the first season of PLL on Netflix (we’re so behind but loving it in all it’s cheesy American glory!) and lots of photo editing for me. We made healthy pizza and chips and snacked on berries before hitting the hay and waving bye bye to another weekend…how do they go by so fast?!


This week is super special for me and you’ll be pleased to know that I’ll finally be revealing my big news on Friday – it’s been a long time coming and I’m just about ready to pop with excitement! Hopefully you’ll all be as happy as I am and I can’t wait to finally share it with you!

Have a great week everyone and keep that cup half full! <3
