Let's take our precious time about it

Just a bit of a weekly round up today...

I've mostly been cooking lots of things from the Members' Favourites cookbook that the lovely people at Weight Watchers sent me. My favourite recipe was the butternut squash brushed in chilli and rosemary topped with quorn mince, peppers and feta mmm!

I got some lovely things in the post like a postcard from Alice and my huge F21 order. I went a little mad because all the jewellery is about £2-4. I did some last minute shopping for Mothers' Day (sorry Mam, forgot all about it)

I discovered Noodlebox in Cardiff, best noodles ever! I went to see The Maccabees who are one of my all time favourite bands. They have the best songs, they are always so happy to see that so many people have turned up to the gig and it helps that Orlando Weeks is incredibly beautiful. I got the most amazingly wrapped parcel from Rosie, I was so excited when I saw the parcel. It was so thoughtfully put together, thank you :)

I wore my new Monsoon dress to The Maccabees but couldn't get a good photo of it so will do a full outfit post on it soon. So girly and frilly! I've also been wearing my new bargain H&M dress which was about £9.99 and my cheapy £2.99 New Look sunglasses.

  15. I really need to pick up a Weight Watchers cookbook, they have really great recipes. Noodles are the best, I wish we had a good noodle place in my neck of the woods. That monsoon dress is so stunning, you look amazeballs.
