Week in Photos

(L-R, 1-9)

So here's what I've been up to this week according to Instagram.

1. The milder weather meant I could ditch my wool Zara coat and get my mac out of the wardrobe instead. Think it's too soon to properly pack coats away for the season yet though.

2. My Davina McCall 'Fit in 15' exercise DVD arrived and I gave it a try for the first time. I haven't tried out all of the workouts yet, and obviously haven't used it for long enough to tell you if it gives good results, but so far I love it. I think it's a really good concept and the workouts aren't boring or too easy/impossible. Plus I love Davina. If you want to know more here's the Amazon link.

3. You know how you have some clothes you never wear and you're not sure why, but you always just glaze over them in your wardrobe? Yeah, well that's this shirt. Nice enough work top from Next but I feel like a sack of potatoes in it and it was static to me all day. Might be one for the charity shop bag.

4. Lunch in Wagamama. Duck gyoza have to be ordered every time, they can't be beaten! I also tried the Teryaki noodles with beef which was tasty, but impossible toe at such large pieces of steak without a knife!

5. Gym gear. I dragged myself onto the cross-trainer and felt better for it. Much more pleasant experience than my outdoors run, and I went for just a long but probably put more effort into it.

6. Mark and I have been toying with the idea of going to the USA on holiday, just throwing around abstract idea and destinations. We've finally settled on some real plans though and are both super excited (having never been to the US before). It feels much more real when you buy travel books. The trip will have to wait until May 2015 though due to the cost and saving up enough to not have to miss out on anything we want to do. That there was a proper adult decision, going with our heads instead of our 'let's do it now because we both really really want to and screw the cost' hearts. 2 week road trip featuring Las Vegas and California :) Will definitely be blogging when we get nearer the time. Next May seems aaaages away now but I'm sure the time will fly.

7. Sunny Sunday called for a picnic in the park. I love Waitrose lunch options, just so many yummy options! We finished it off with huge ice creams from the ice cream van in the park.

8. I wore my ASOS boucle cardi on Saturday for a little wander round the shops. I tried to take a spontaneous 'let's just take a quick snap of us' selfie before we left but it turned into an epic phone photo session because Mark looked like a creep in every shot and we got the giggles. This was the best of the bunch.

9. I was greeted by Meggy, one of our Jack Russells when I returned home on Sunday. She didn't realise I was home and when she saw me she got all excited, chasing me round my room. I took out my phone to capture the cuteness...And she promptly sat down and just stared at me. For ages. Obviously didn't want her photo taken that day!

What have you been up to?


  1. You've been a busy bee! You've also just reminded me that I've left my lighter jackets in Devon AGAIN, which is a bit of a pest. Oh well. Your holiday sounds amazing too- it may be a way away but it will be SO worth it I'm sure!

  2. Ahh holiday sounds excellent. I did the West coasta few years ago and it is definitely worth doing properly with the right money. Make sure you fit in time for San Fran that was my favourite and also Yosemite! X
