Cute Buys

Hey guess what its Saturday!
Well unless your living on another planet you know that already but I was just confirming it!
I'm actually staying in, yes can you believe it? I think I've been out more in the past month than I have all year! Its been fun though but this weekend calls for revision and homework and that's it no boozing just head in my books which I'm pretty glad about I need a rest from those youngsters!

Lets get to my Saturday shall we.......

I started the day with a fabulous workout:

25 minute run with lamp post intervals along the seafront (in the sun!)
40 x step ups alternating feet
40 x step jumps
20 x press ups
20 x tricep dips
25 minute run back along the sand

This was so good and a great way to start the day the energy bomb I put on my smoothie after was pretty fab too

Chocolate protein smoothie topped with coconut and a raw energy bomb

I then got ready and popped into town to meet Emma for a coffee and a nose round the shops

Iced soy latte

Perfect for a sunny day

We sat in the park and drank our coffees then went round the shops some more where I picked up some great finds...........

Ador dark chocolate which was being sold at a discounted price, how could I refuse?

I couldn't!

A cute coin purse

Too cute to leave behind!

I also got this uber cute water bottle, its aluminium which means no nasty hormones leaking into my water from plastics

I've been after a water bottle like this for ages and again I just couldn't leave it behind

These also found a way into my possession! Tahini and almond butter : )

After a fun morning I returned to the hotel for lunch

I made a mixed tuna salad with a balsamic vinegar and olive oil dressing

I had to crack the almond butter open (obviously!) and teamed it with oat cakes and rice cakes.

For the rest of the afternoon I revised for Mondays test = brain hemorrhage

I had 2 veggie sausages left that needed to be eaten. I steamed some veg and added the sausages as well as some chili and tom sauce, taste sensation love this mix!

I obviously had to try my chocolate and it didn't disappoint great flavor : )

I plan an early morning workout with Emma tomorrow we're gonna do one of my Davina DVD's. I can't remember the last time I did one of these so am looking forward to getting my sweat on. Then more revision I think there may be another trip to costa for a break cause you know its the weekend and that's just what we do : )

Bye for now x x


Favorite chocolate?

My favorite is dark the darker the better and if there's almond involved I'm in heaven!


  1. Cutest water bottle ever! I really need an aluminium one.

    Favourite chocolate - Lindt 80% dark. LOVE IT.

  2. Sounds like a great day! The weather looks gorgeous and shopping+coffee+friends is always amazing. I'm not a big chocolate person, but I do like some dark chocolate on occasion.

  3. a heart chocolate and that cute water bottle and your great this one!!!


  4. I love milk chocolate, we have this awesome Finnish brand calles Fazer which makes THE best chocolate :)

    Your coin purse is so cute!

  5. I'm the same as you, love the dark chocolate. I honestly don't think I could pick a favourite at the moment, I have loads of varieties in my cupboard. the dark chocolate with ginger and the dark chocolate with chilli are probably high up my list right now!

  6. It sounds like you had such a fantastic day :)
    Awww I love all the cuteness!! I'm a sucker for all things girlie.
    Oh don't get me started on chocolate. It's simply the best (though my parents don't like chocolate that much - I bet I'm adopted ;)). I'm currently really into chocolate with salted caramel. It's so good! But generally I'd say the darker the better. The only chocolate I can't stand is white though that doesn't count as "real" chocolate anyway ;)

  7. It's got to be DARK choccy! I am eating my way through dark & lavender oil at the moment which is heavenly.
    I do love a nice Cadbury's Dairy Milk easter egg though :D

  8. Wow that Energy Bomb looks LUSH! x

  9. Hmm favourite chocolate . . . Reece's PB cups or Bounties. I'm cheap when it comes to chocolate. Ooh and I love a Star Bar too!
