Hello lovely people, hope you are all enjoying your weekends! I’ve had a lovely time viewing the images from Aiden’s newborn photoshoot – they’ve come out so well and he looks super cute in them! We have also been spending time with the family and generally just chilling out.
Last weekend we attended my besties wedding and she looked gorgeous. She asked me to be her bridesmaid and I was so chuffed to even to be considered, I jumped at the chance. I’m the girl who became a bride before a bridesmaid. Most of the weddings in my family happened before I was born, so any chance of being on bridesmaid duty was pretty much blown.
Getting the opportunity to get out of my pajama bottoms/leggings and glammed up in a beautiful dress felt like such a treat after having a baby. I loved the Grecian maxi style dress that was chosen for the bridesmaids. It was such a fun wedding and my little man got a lot of attention from the ladies which he loved.
Alfie and I raided the sweetie buffet, which came in handy for our movie marathon the next day. The sweetie buffet was full of old fashion favourites that reminded me of the Woolworths pick ‘n’ mix that I loved as a kid. The white mice and fizzy cola bottles were my favourites.
It’s been very chilly in these parts recently and soup has been my preferred choice for lunches. I made this curried carrot soup from left over veggies that needed using up before the weekly grocery shop was delivered. So simple, but it really hit the spot!
Talking of my grocery shop I managed to pick up a selection of Coyo coconut yoghurts. I had a pot of the mango flavour with my breakfast yesterday with some Kashi Go Lean cereal and fresh blackberries.
During my entire pregnancy the one thing that I have really missed food wise is runny egg yolks, they are just the best. I’ve drowned myself in runny yolks since giving birth and have had fried eggs for breakfast or lunch every other day. I love them paired with creamy avocado and cherry tomatoes.
Nakd have just released two new flavours in their range: Christmas Pud and Bakewell Tart. I’m a big fan of these bars as they are free of nasties and are very wholesome. I managed to find the Christmas Pud bar quite easily, but the Bakewell Tart one is far more elusive. In all honesty I enjoyed the Christmas Pud bar, but wasn’t convinced that it replicated the Christmas pudding flavour well. I’ve since got my hands on the Bakewell Tart version and these bars are spot on!
It looks like such a beautiful day outside so I’m thinking that a nice walk and maybe another Pumpkin Spiced Latte coffee date with my favourite little guy is in order. Hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend!
