This Week I’ve Been… Getting Autumnal


As much as I don’t want to admit it, there has been a noticeable shift in the temperature over the past week. I’m pretty sure mother nature saw the calendar switch over to 1st September and turned off the sun. No fair – we are meant to have until the 22nd September! Thanks to the new chill I’ve been dusting off old jumpers, hunting for long sleeved top and trying to work out how to keep the summer feeling whilst I stand freezing for my bus each morning. One thing that did bring the warmth…Nobu. Oh yes last night I had my first meal at the super luxe restaurant Nobu with work. OH BABY that was some mighty fine food with a cocktail that came in a milk bottle. What more do I need to say!

This Week I’ve Been…

Getting into tea – if you didn’t already know, I don’t like hot drinks. Hold the phone, sound the klaxon, am I crazy!? It is true. Tea, coffee, most hot chocolates, off the table. I am slowly trying to train my taste buds into the realm of the hot drinks, starting with this delish flowering tea. Now this I can get on board with!

Repurchasing the essentials – as soon as a bottle of the Caudalie Beauty Elixir runs out, my skin throws a fit. What can I say it’s gotten used to the calming properties this beauty water brings including it’s ability to prevent blemishes from popping up. After running off mini bottles for a few months I took the plunge and picked up the bigun’ with a mini on the side obvs

Falling for scarves – with that cool winter weather starting to make it’s way through the atmosphere I may have already eyed up a couple of scarves and even snapped one up. What is it they say? Sorry not sorry ;)

Discovering Holland & Barrett – if you haven’t seen the post (and video!) already where I talk about the outstanding meal I had with Holland & Barrett, make sure you catch up with the post here and video here you can’t complain when it includes scrumptious food
