This week has been filled with food, food and more food. We’re eating more healthily and cutting out carbs – I’m not the best cook and defo not creative so I’ve taken to reading loads of recipe books and following recipes for dinners this week. It seems to have worked so far! Anyhoo – on with my #littleloves for this week:
For someone who loves to read I seem to fail miserably at this category every week. I spend all day reading online for work, so much so that my head is constantly spinning – yet I can never pick one thing that seems cool enough for this category. I did however hop over to an old blog I used to read when I lived in Cape-Town – Kelly-Anne’s blog. Kelly-Anne started blogging as a child and is now around 18 years old, she runs a little online craft shop and makes the most beautiful things. She also bakes, sews, you name it – that girl can do it! She wrote a beautiful post on visiting her grandmother in the mountains and the scenery was just breathtaking. It made me miss home SO much! I wish I was brave enough to live somewhere this secluded.
I watched Shan get all stroppy playing pool with us in the pub. HA! We don’t go there too often (it’s the pub we used to own) but now and then we head down there for a visit and Shan insists on CHEATING us at pool. It’s fun to watch. Lol.
On Friday I headed out with 20 girls to celebrate some birthdays. It was a fab night and I stepped outside my comfort zone and wore this floral jumpsuit from New Look. Yip – NO black here guys, miracle. It was so comfy and a size smaller than usual so I was over the moon. I forgot to take a full selfie shot so this is the best I could come up with in the car. Haha.
It looks like this on, I wore mine with flat gold sparkly sandals but you could absolutely dress it up with heels/wedges too.
My friend posted this song on Facebook and it’s STUCK in my brain all week – Thanks Kerri! It’s country / cheese fest / poppy and I love it! Whack it on full blast and dance around the living room. Go on.
As I mentioned I’ve been trying to whip up some yummy healthy meals this week – my Instagram feed is literally filled with food. This salad was from the Essentials magazine – butternut, sweet potato, pomegranate seeds, rocket and baby leaf salad, feta and a nutty yoghurt dressing. Seriously YUM.
Our pallet decking is coming on so well – we’ve been working our bums off to get it ready for the summer. I still can’t believe we did all this for FREE! Dave whipped up our benches this week, now to paint and decorate them with cushions and lights and all the pretty things… We’re so close to it being done – I can’t wait to lounge on it in the sunshine with a cocktail!
