HAPPY MONDAY | 10 GOOD THINGS

Happy Bank Holiday!

WHY CAN’T IT BE BANK HOLIDAY EVERY DAY?!

I feel like this is what life should really be like.

Wake up at 8am, go for a run, do a food shop, have a yummy breakfast, shower and make myself look pretty, sit on the sofa blogging, watching Sabrina the Teenage and drinking endless cups of tea.

Doesn’t that sound like like just the best day ever? Sigh.

I’ll just have to enjoy it while I can!

Here’s what else I’ve been loving this week…

Happy Monday

1. Tzatziki. Gary and I went on a date night on Friday to Hungry Donkey, a new Greek restaurant in Aldgate. We accidentally ordered far too much tzatziki and I’m not even ashamed to say I ate every last bit of it. So good.

2. Culottes. I always thought I’d hate them, but I accidentally picked up a pair in Primark on Saturday thinking it was a skirt and have actually fallen COMPLETELY in love with them. So much so, that I bought two pairs in different colours. Because YOLO.

3. Old school TV. I’ve been watching non-stop episodes of Sabrina, Zoey 101 and Saved by the Bell. Not even sorry about it. They make me feel all happy and 13 again.

4. Colouring book. I got sent an Art Therapy colouring book this week and I’ve been loving sitting down with some felt tip pens and unwinding the old fashion way :)

5. Early morning run through the common. I’ve been feeling a bit blah and disconnected recently and I finally realised I probably haven’t been exercising enough. So I went for a long run on the common this morning and now I’m feeeeeling gooooood!

Happy Monday

6. Eurovision. Twitter, Graham Norton and lots of red wine. The ultimate Saturday night in.

7. Seafood feast at Rex & Mariano. Vicky, Posh Rich and I finally (finallyyy) had a massive catchup over a bottle of wine and several yummy dishes of seafood in Soho. The tuna tartare was a special favourite with all of us!

8. Matilda the Musical. My friend Jodie and I have been planning to see Matilda for YEARS, and we finally got round to getting tickets yesterday. It’s SUCH a great show! The music is brilliant and the set is incredible. Definitely recommend it!

9. Horse and carriage ride through City of London. We took a double-decker horse and carriage ride to an event last week and it was SO FANCY. And amazing. And fancy.

10. Five Guys burger. LITTLE CHEESE BURGER WITH GRILLED ONIONS, KETCHUP AND SMALL FRIES. Please and thank you.

Happy Monday

More plans for this bank holiday:

Girl time with my best gal pal. Salmon and greens for dinner. Possibly some more Sabrina the Teenage Witch. (Oh who am I kidding, definitely some more Sabrina the Teenage Witch…)

And then early night all ready for work tomorrow.

Sigh.

What are you all up to today? :)

    • Hot crispy pitta breads, tzatziki, hummus, halloumi and a selection of dipping veggies is hoenstly one of my favourite dinners ever <3 xx

  • We have been SO bad with the exercise this weekend, we were supposed to do Park Run on Saturday but couldn’t be bothered and this morning we were supposed to go to the gym but couldn’t be bothered with that either. Instead we’ve had pizza, afternoon tea and quite a bit of chocolate! Argh!
    I really want to see a piccie of your in your culottes, I tried some on and I looked so bad in them, I’d love to see what yours look like, see if I can be converted too!

      PS. Outfit request duly noted. I’ll try and photograph them this weekend! :D I can promise you they’re way more flattering then you’d think though :) xx

  • Matilda the musical is so incredible, I went to see it in easter and have been listening to the music non stop ever since :)

    I adore tzatziki – I’ve been making my own recently and eating far too much of it. I find myself wanting to have a salad for dinner just because I can eat this stuff with it. So good.

    I also really need to get myself to a Five Guys! x

  • Tzatziki is my absolute favourite. I remember trying it when I was little on holiday in Greece, and I’ve been hooked ever since. Plus, it’s kinda healthy – or at least it is to me, so I don’t feel as guilty when I eat it.

  • Ah such a lovely post! Your food photos made my stomach growl like a wild beast haha! xx

  • I discovered the Sabrina the Teenage Witch MOVIE a couple of months back and wouldn’t let my hubby change the channel. I never knew it existed! It was so bad but good… her love interest was Ryan freakin’ Reynolds!! #mindblown

  • Victoria Nightingale

    I loved Eurovision, although like you said way too many ballads haha. Also you’ve made me want to fish out my culottes out from the back of my wardrobe. Unluckily for me I have my last exam tomorrow so my bank holiday has just been revision!

    • I was getting so mad at the ballads haha… Definitely go dig out the culottes! Honestly, I love them so much. They’re gonna be so so great over summer!

      GOOD LUCK WITH YOUR EXAM! <3 xx

  • Great post =] I have the art therapy colouring book too and I love using felt tips with mine. And omg eurovision was amazing =]

  • Weekends should be three days long all the time! xx

  • I want to find some Primark culottes! I’m definitely missing out on this trend. SOB.

  • I love the scene in Matlida where they dance hanging off the school fence, whilst doing the “alphabet”. Fabulous! x

    • That was BRILLIANT!!! Also the swings. And the music. I was in floods haha! #ballofemotion xx

  • I really want to go see Matilda! It’s the next musical on my list :D xx

    Jessie | allthingsbeautiful-x

    • It’s brilliant Jessie!! Based more on the book than the film and utterly magical :) xx

  • I’m sure that every time I have a read of your blog I get hungry! You always post pictures of amazing looking food and now I’m going to have to get something to eat although I’m pretty sure it won’t be as tasty as the Greek food or that burger! Another lovely post, I got a colouring book yesterday and I’ve been loving relaxing and going back to my childhood!

    Emma emhasrednails

    • Tee hee! Sorry about that haha :D

      I’ve been all over the childhood flashbacks this week :) the art therapy colouring books are a godsend! xxx

  • Emma Reilly

    I’m currently reading this as a distraction before going to my first exam eeeeeek! :( And it put a smile on my face :) I can’t wait to have time to do this sort of stuff once exams are over. Your bank holiday sounds perfect! I haven’t seen Sabrina in agessss but I do love reminiscing so I’ll have to get watching again :)

    p.s. I of course voted for your fab tshirt design! Hope you win :)

  • There should definitely be a bank holiday every month!

  • I discovered Five Guys this weekend. Let’s just say I’m in love. I’m glad you feel better for a run too, I do love to get out and clear my mind with a run! It’s just a shame I’m so busy this week I’m not going to get a chance :(

  • The eurovision was a bit of a guilty pleasure for me too. Obsessed with Swedens entry! I would love to see Matilda, I’d say it was great! All of these food pics made my mouth water, haha x
