After whipping my camera out at any opportunity, whether that's my SLR or just my iPhone for Instagram, I've been snapping away this week. This week has been filled with new recipes, lots of food (all good though) and a few new beauty bits.
One - I've been taking 10 minutes out of my morning to sit out on the balcony to have breakfast. Most days I skip breakfast which I know is so bad for you so I've been making an effort not to do that. Whether it's just simply having a bagel or making a smoothie bowl, it really does give you energy for the rest of the day, well until lunchtime. I need to make the most of the mild mornings on the balcony as it'll be too cold to sit out there soon.
Two - This week I bought Top With Cinnamons cookbook! I have been reading Izy's blog for years now so I just knew I had to pick it up. I have spotted it around various different Waterstones but I picked it up in the concession in Selfridges. Every single recipe in there is delicious and I feel as though I can adapt them all to my tastes. Behind the book is a favourite chunky knit of mine from COS which I have dug out for the colder days.
Three - I made my own granola on Friday. I have been wanting to make it for a while rather than having shop bought and once I did, I couldn't believe how easy it was. It took me less than 10 minutes and tastes delicious. Do let me know if you'd like to see the recipe!
Four - Have you heard of the brand Only Fingers and Toes? I hadn't until a few weeks back and I am very impressed with it. Take a look at the website to see how beautifully packaged the nail polishes come in, that's what got to me. A shade for everyone, I have been loving the muted tone light blue this past week.
Five - Yesterday I went to meet my sister at Caravan for brunch and it's always a pleasure going into the bathrooms there as they have the Aesop Reverence Hand Wash. My favourite hand wash Aesop make, it's a lovely exfoliating hand wash which leaves your hands super smooth. Next up is the new Bobbi Brown Smokey Nudes collection which as always, I am loving. More than that I am loving Kate Upton being the new face of Bobbi Brown as she's so fresh looking, perfect for the Bobbi Brown brand.
