Week in Photos

So here's what I've been up to recently, according to Instagram...

1. I made a New Look sale order a couple of weeks ago before I went away and finally got a chance to wear this blazer last week. Part of me loves it and part of me thinks it looks a little prim. Hmmm

2. I met up again with the lovely Ellie from Mantra Pixie and we had a lovely little chat and catch up. And we ate some seriously good food. Patty and Bun was closed (sob) so we ended up in Burgers and Cocktails instead and both the burgers and the cocktails were yummy. Bubblegum gin? Yes please.

3. A little bit of lunch time shopping...whoops. In my defence, House of Fraser had a brand sale event on at the time and I didn't keep everything I ordered.

4. I normally meet up with my two best friends regularly for dinner/coffee/cocktails but we thought we'd switch it up with a lovely sunny breakfast date last week. I was full until well into the afternoon after the eggs benedict and copious amounts of tea and juice.

5. Cracking out a different (and much neglected) scarf here, but it didn't last long. Although it's pretty, these floaty/chiffon type scarves are just a bit too light weight to be practical.

6. Lunch at Bill's and I wasn't feel too hungry so opted for the salad (plus sweet potato fries which you can spy in the background there...). Such a nice salad with plenty of yummy bacon and avocado and no skimping on the dressing. Probably not THAT healthy but definitely tasty.

7. So last week I got back from a work trip to Kosovo. I've never visited a Balkan country before and it was great. Everyone in Pristina was so friendly and the bars had a fun atmosphere. Oh and we visited an actual bear sanctuary...so cute! I took this snap whilst doing some work on our apartment balcony in the morning sunshine. It was a really good trip but I was ready to come home at the end of the week...too much time with one colleague can be a little wearing after a while!

8. Cinema trip to see Maleficent. I really enjoyed this and thought Angelina Jolie was a great casting. I imagine some of the effects would have looked great in 3D, but having to wear 2 pairs of glasses to watch a film just doesn't  really appeal.

9. Back to my favourite summery scarf but with bare legs! The sun finally has its hat on here in the UK. I am an eternal jeans wearer but thought I should try to switch it up a bit so slapped on a bit of faux glow and went for a dress. It's made me realise I was a bit hung up on not getting my legs out ever and pushed me towards getting a couple more dresses for work and play. Now I just have the (surprisingly difficult) task of finding something that isn't bum skimming. I'll keep you posted...

On to the next weekend now!
