THE SUNDAY POST #1

001. This week has been a totally non-crazy, sat at home in my pajamas studying kind of week. I haven't been at home for New Years Eve for many years now, but as the first one without Dad I wanted to spend it with Mum. We had some family over to stay, ate some good food and played a lot of monopoly. It was nothing like the past few years spent partying Manchester with my girls, but it was nice to see the family, especially my beautiful nephew, Dilan. 
002. Friends is now on Netflix. Life ruined. 
003. The other day I stumbled across Helen from The Lovecats Inc and fell clean in love with her blog. Expect a clean layout, large, crisp photography and well written posts. Helen blogs about a mix of fashion and beauty, with the occasional recipe thrown in too. Her tips and tricks series for blogging is great too.
004. I'm a bit late to the party but I just bought my first ever bag of Quinoa, and made this one pan Mexican quinoa. I swapped the black beans for a tin of mixed beans and it was delicious, really quick and simple to make, and would taste good cold in a packed lunch. Follow me on Pinterest for more healthy eating ideas.
005. I'm heading back to Manchester on Tuesday.. can't wait!

  1. I love the Lovecats Inc too :) and Quinoa is a must for me given I don't eat meat as you can do so much with it :)
