Lipstick, Pimms, Meat and Cake!

Hello and Happy Monday!
Gotta say I would love to rewind and it be Sunday again because I had the best day and I didn't want it to end but with more fun plans to look forward to this coming weekend its all good : )

Todays post is all about what made me smile this Sunday, make-up, drinks, food and obviously the company....

Lipstick!


Now my hair is dark again I am having a new love affair with lipstick, when my hair was bright red I didn't really like wearing lipstick but you can't stop me now! This bright pink lippy is one of my favourite's from Mac given to me by my sister. I will definitely be investing in some more bright colours for the summer months! 

Pimms! 


I am not one for really drinking other then when I go out for a night on the town but yesterday with the beautiful weather and the talk of a BBQ my mind started wandering to thoughts of Pimms. My dad bought me a bottle of the Blackberry and Elderflower ages ago and we still had some left so we thought why the hell not!? So I bought some lemonade and made us some drinks with added lemon slices and ice...delicious and the perfect sunny day drink!

Meat!


Oh yes our first BBQ of the year took place yesterday and it was our own one, which is actually the first time I have had a BBQ at home on my own barbie! We picked up a real bargain in Asda, BBQ for £10 which you can't complain about plus its really small and compact, perfect for me and Dale as we plan to take it fishing with us next time : )

Dale was in charge of making our dinner we had chicken marinated in pesto (leftover from the other day) and little pieces of peppered steak. I fixed up a salad to go with it and I have to say it was bloody lovely! I am already looking forward to our next BBQ. 

Cake!


I had some bananas that desperately needed using up and some coconut flour I was sent along with some other bits for a review (coming soon) which meant I had one thing in mind....Banana Bread! OH MY GOSH this baby is so good, not too sweet, light, fluffy and super moist, I can't wait to share the recipe with you.


Once dinner had settled I cut a slice and enjoyed it with my feet up, the perfect end to a perfect day. Yesterday really did end too soon but I love days like that, the ones you want to go on and on. I have all my fingers and toes crossed that this coming weekend is just as sunny, we have plans to go fishing and have another BBQ so positive thoughts people! 

Question:

How did you enjoy the sun over weekend?

  5. Gah I could really have a Pimms about now! Love the lippy on you, it is easier to add colour when your hair is more neutral :-)
