Mariah’s birthday selfie – Day 2 of Forza: Shake it Slim – Lean in 15: chicken & new potato hash – Shaking it Slim (again!) – New KG bag love – Barnet v Luton – Daddy/Daughter day – Easter Monday football OOTD – New shoes – The Birthday Girl #Mariah25 – Yet more pre-London selfies
In my last round-up, I got as far as the Easter weekend and I had such a good (and busy) four days off work. On the Saturday I was out celebrating the beautiful Mariah’s birthday. We went for dinner at Ping Pong, before moving on to Zebrano for drinks. I had such a good night – even if the Sunday was a write-off!
On Easter Monday, I went to Barnet with my dad. He hadn’t been to The Hive for about a year and I promised I would take him this season, if he was feeling better and up to it. His friend picked us up en route and then dropped as home afterwards, which was good. You may have seen my outfit post [if not, click here].
My two current loves are my Chi Chi London mule-esque heels and my Kurt Geiger handbag (which is my new everyday/work bag). I had lusted over the shoes for months, but still haven’t worn them yet. The bag was a bit of an impulse buy from Shoeaholics, but it’s so beaut and you can never have too many handbags, right?
I’ve continued to be inspired by the recipe ideas in the Lean in 15 book [food diary available here]. It’s so easy to get bored with having the same meal every lunchtime and prepping/cooking from scratch every night after work, but I have thoroughly enjoyed it so far. Bar one recipe that went slightly wrong (who knew you couldn’t fry brown rice because it turns to mush?), everything I have made, I have enjoyed. A couple of my favourites are the lamb kofta for lunch and the chicken & new potato hash for dinner.
The lovely people at Forza Supplements also sent me the Shake it Slim starter pack. Because I’ve been following the Body Coach, I only had these for breakfast, rather than twice a day. But they really are lush – much better than Slim Fast and Celebrity Slim to name a couple of others I’ve had before. Expect a review post soon, but in the mean time, find out more here.
What have you been up to lately?
