Happy Friday friends!
Today is the first day of a long weekend for me as I celebrate my 31st birthday on Monday – I have today and Monday off (working on your birthday is sick and wrong). Today I’m heading to the gym and the WI Country Market, then baking some chocolate and coconut (bounty!) cupcakes to share with you on Monday!
Last Friday we had friends over for dinner to celebrate the end of the week! I made homemade pizza and garlic bread and we drank gin and tonic’s and wine – turns out they don’t mix, at all! I bought some quorn pepperoni to go on top too which was really tasty.
I also got a pretty summer dress from Sainsbury’s! Love the floral print and it’s super comfy.
On Sunday I had volunteered to make some cakes for the Park Garden Trail in Nottingham, so I baked cookie dough topped chocolate brownies!
The day was possibly a bit warm for super gooey brownies!
The event was super busy and crowded but the gardens were lovely and it was a beautiful sunny day!
On Tuesday I had TWO fillings at the dentist 🙁 In my defence one was a replacement and also, cake is delicious! Apparently I was very brave.
Post dentist I bought a ton of American sweets from B&M bargains, who seem to be increasing their selection all the time! The hours I had to wait to eat these were worth it – still as good as ever!
Have you tried this mascara? Just broke into my second tube and it’s awesome.
On Wednesday it was City WI night and Robin Hood came to speak to us! Tim is a lovely guy and it was really interesting hearing how he got the job of being Robin.
On Thursday I headed to the Aegon Open in Nottingham for work. It was SO hot and lovely to be outdoors. I’ve never seen professional tennis before and the power they use is incredible. Related public service announcement – wear suncream!
For anyone else obsessed with halloumi – get yourself to lidl where it’s literally half the price of all the other supermarkets.
Have a wonderful weekend friends!
PS I’m completely obsessed with this album at the moment… anyone else?
