So, I did a few bits and pieces over the weekend worthy of a mention here, but let's start off with the important part, my outfit...! Here is what I wore on Sunday, for a spot of shopping and an impromptu picnic by the water (Mediterranean bread, cheese, houmous, tortilla chips and crackers...be still my beating cholesterol, lol.)
You may be thinking that I am not the most sensible person to wear white for a picnic, but I actually had my faithful slouchy grey Primark cardigan on for the picnic part and I only threw the coat on to look glam for shopping and outfit photos. Yes guys, #bloggerproblems. You feel me?! ;) Besides, I couldn't let the fear of messing up my white coat come between me and the joys of caramelised onion houmous!
So, is it just me or were Sunday's just made for picnics? A perfect view of the water, several edible treats and I was happy. I have not felt very relaxed lately, so I really appreciate the feeling of just being totally chilled-out and living in the moment.
The array of picnic food ;P
Wensleydale cheese with cranberries, oh my goodness I just adore this!
Normandy Camembert :)
Cute rowing boats.
I also went to Hotel Chocolat in Liverpool One recently, I was having day when I just needed something to cheer me up, and we all know the restorative powers of chocolate. Sometimes, a bar of Cadbury's Dairy Milk is enough, but at other times something a bit more special is called for. I had never ventured in to Hotel Chocolat before and what a world of chocolate-based pleasure it is! There is a cafe in there too where you can have all types of amazing treats! I resisted this time and just left with a modest bar of Rocky Road, after being given delicious free champagne truffles to sample by the kind assistant.
What is there to say other than this chocolate was so good!
I also recently bought a statement necklace from Primark, you can see that I am wearing it in the outfit pictures above. I absolutely love it and I think for £8 it was an absolute bargain because it looks like something which would cost much more in Zara or Topshop. The detailing on it is very pretty and it really adds another dimension to a plain outfit. It is from their Limited Edition range, so it is worthwhile snapping it up soon if you want one :)
Necklace £8 Primark.
The next stop was Superdrug, all I went in for was toothpaste, so of course I came out with three make up products...you know how it is! I bought the MUA blush in 'Candyfloss' Maybelline the colossal volume cat eyes mascara in 'Black' and a Maybelline Colour Elixir Lip Lacquer in 'Petal Plush'
A little haul never hurt anybody ;)
So, after a weekend of delicious food, I went for a long walk on Sunday evening. I put my headphones on and just enjoyed the view. I have spoken before about this, but I honestly love walking so much especially during times of stress or not feeling great. I always feel so much better and more focused after a long walk. There was a beautiful sunset and here are a couple of pictures I took:
So that is all for now lovely readers, what did you all do this weekend? I wish you a good week ahead! Remember, I love to read your sweet comments and I follow back my followers.
Until next time,
