Sewing Fun

Hi all, how are you?
I'm just fine, I had a great weekend and Monday has been a good day which means my week has started well, I hope you all had a good weekend? What did you get up to in this chilly weather? 

Friday night I went out for dinner with some friends, the dinner was a real disappointment but the company made up for it! I met up with two old friends and we had a good old chinwag then I went into town to meet Dale at one of our friends birthday parties. I had a drink of wine for the first time in ages and yes it went straight to my head : )

Saturday I had work at the tattoo shop, before I started we went for coffee to help kick the hangover!

My coffee was so good but my protein bar not so much on my dry mouth, ha 
After work Saturday I just came home and hung out with Dale and had an early night, needed! 

Sunday was a real lazy one starting with homemade frothy coffees then......

This insanely good breakfast! Festive quinoa (no added sugar sweet mincemeat), banana and caramelised almonds using Coconom's turmeric and tamarind coconut sugar, so good! 

Then I sat and made Christmas decorations! 

It has been ages since I got my creative head on and sat down to do any sewing so this was so much fun. I have been meaning to make some Christmas decorations for years and finally I get round to it! I will be giving these as Christmas gifts to save on festive costs plus I think its nice to get something handmade : )

Today I had clients from 6am till 12 but I did mange to fit a delicious breakfast in. Grated apple festive quinoa topped with a cinnamon raw ball which I will be reviewing soon! 

For lunch I had a small sweet pot topped with mackerel plus a side salad dressed with Udo's oil.

After lunch had settled I got my workout head on and did an upper body workout followed by a walk/run which leads me nicely on to last weeks workout plan:

Monday: 1hr Skype Session + Strength Upper Body
Tuesday: Strength Lower Body + Run
Wednesday: 1hr 20 mins workout DVD 
Thursday: Strength Upper Body + Yoga
Friday: Strength Lower Body
Saturday: Rest
Sunday: Rest

Definitely getting the workouts in and loving them all to be honest! 

Right I have to go out so I must say farewell and Happy Monday! I hope you have a great week, mine is set to be rather good as its my birthday Friday and I have 4 days off from Friday to Tuesday whoop! 

Anyway I shall tell you more about my plans later on the is week : )


Do you like to make Christmas decorations/presents or do you buy everything?


  1. This year I'm making Christmas gifts like homemade chilli jams, chutneys, sloe gin, and I've seen a coconut cocoa scrub I'd like to make for people!

    1. Awwww what lucky friends and family you have!!!! Sounds lovely x

  2. They are such pretty decorations. I think handmade things are so much more special. I will make a few things like fudge, and maybe honeycomb, as well as cakes for our families.

    1. Thanks! That sounds lovely I'm thinking of making done caramelised nuts too yum!

  3. Oooh so creative! I'd never be able to do anything like that. What upper body workouts do you do out of curiosity? I really struggle with these!

    1. Thanks! I usually do exercises using a barbell/dumbbell sir just body weight I think I will post a couple of my routines for you and others that find it hard to get a workout together x

  4. I love handmade gifts - making and receiving. I'm in the middle of knitting my nieces and nephew the Noah's ark animals (although it's taking forever, and might actually now be NEXT year's Christmas gift!)
    I hate it when you go out for food and it's rubbish. :( The situation is always less annoying when you're with the right people though.

    1. Ahhh that sounds lovely!

      Yep your right the company if good always makes a bad situation good!

  5. Love the decorations! Hope you have a great birthday tomorrow!
