Hey y’all! 😀
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?
