Hello everyone! I hope you have all had a great weekend. 🙂
My weekend has been pretty standard, but I’ve really enjoyed it even though I haven’t been up to anything exciting. It’s just been really relaxing and involved lots of baking in the kitchen. I cannot wait to share some of the tasty recipes that I have been cooking up.
Yesterday I had to go back to work…BOOOOOOO! Actually it wasn’t so bad as after 2 weeks off I felt pretty chilled out and refreshed so ready to tackle the onslaught of the early Christmas shoppers. I even got to leave an hour early to take my complementary Christmas shopping time too. Happy Days! 😛
Working girl OOTD: Black broiderie anglais dress, H&M, cardigan, Primark, thick black tights, House of Fraser, red suede shoe boots, Office.
As I work on a fashion floor we have to look relatively “on trend” or “with it” as my lovely Mum would say. Considering that the uniform is strictly black it is quite a difficult feat, but we are allowed to accesorise with colour. With that in mind I just had to bust out my bright red shoe boots. The remind me a little bit like shoes that an elf would wear as they don’t quite reach up to the ankle.
A long day in retail means a good hearty breakfast is required to set me up for the day. I decided to make a simple but very large and delicious bowl of banana and cinnamon oats with water topped with crunchy PB and strawberry jam.
For lunch I made one of my favourite salad of all time after bagging a great deal on figs at the market. I got 8 figs for a £1!!! I love a bargain and I certainly love figs in my salads.
I just love adding nuts and dried fruit to my salad for sweetness, but my favourite is sweet with a salty vibe. So this sweet and salty loveliness really hit the spot and helped me through the afternoon at work.
To see me through the afternoon I snacked on a huge pink lady apple (yum!) and a Nakd Cocoa Delight bar.
Since I got home earlier than usual it meant that I got to go all experimental in the kitchen. I’ve been wanting make some tofu meatballs for ages and thought it would be ideal to cook some up with the bargain pack of tofu that I picked up earlier this week. They tasted great, but I will be sharing the recipe later this week so you will have to wait that little bit longer.
For dessert I made up a yummy snack plate of 2 pink lady apples dusted with cinnamon with Booja-Booja ginger stemmed truffles. Oh my! These truffles are so light and fluffy inside. Booja-Booja are by far my favourite chocolate brand and I’m not even vegan!
Later in the evening I decided to get my snack face on and raided the gingerbread men and had some more dark chocolate. This morning I did feel a little off balance and sickly so quickly made a huge green smoothie and did an awesome yoga session to feel all zen like and more like myself again.
Before I love you and leave you I have to announce the winner of my Linwoods giveaway…
