Red Lights

You know when you go shopping and you just get a total bargain, like an absolute STEAL and you just can't wait to show them off and won't stop ranting and raving about it because it's basically your 'purchase of the year'.  Well, I think that happened with these boots.. despite it only being January ha.

They're from Office but I bought them in the sale on ASOS for £50.  They're red suede with studs and I think they are an exact dupe for the Chloe Susanna boots which retail at £850! SCORE.  I am so so happy with them and teamed them with this cute outfit for a super cold day in London.  What do you think?








Have you scored any bargains recently?

The Rucksack Edit

I've been looking for a new rucksack/backpack for ages now.  My old denim Primark one is getting quite tatty now and I'm not sure it's that smart for work anyway, actually it's definitely not!  I have my regular work bag, currently this big ball of faux fur from House of Fraser but I like to use a backpack for days when I'm going to the gym straight from work.

The reason it's taking me so long to find the right backpack is a) because I'm super fussy and b) because it needs to be both smart for work but also practical enough to fit my gym kit in. I've had a good look online and in stores and thought I would share my findings on the blog.

What I Ate Today

The beginning of the year is the perfect time to kickstarts any new health habits you've been wanting to try.  I've been fully vegan for almost a year now and have no intentions of ever going back.  Here is what I ate today on my somewhat healthy vegan diet.


Breakfast

Peanut butter and banana smoothie with almond milk and spinach

Lunch

Butter beans, more spinach and my own homemade vegan pesto

Dinner

Minestrone soup

Snacks

Nachos




No a lot of carbs in there but I'm not at the gym today so don't feel like I need as many, plus the nachos would have clocked the carb load up!

What did you eat today?

Dublin Photo Diary

Happy New Year!  I spent mine in Dublin, Ireland and here are some of the photos from my stay.  It was such good fun, I would definitely recommend it for New Year or a big occasion.


The famous Temple Bar which was absolutely packed on NYE but such good fun!  Lots of traditional Irish music and pub songs.

Our room at the Fleet Street Hotel.  A really good central location in Temple Bar.

Cobbled streets everywhere so be careful with heels!

A yummy pad thai dish at Thai Orchid, not traditionally Irish but vegan :)

Trying out the different types of Guinness at the Guinness Storehouse

Dublin Cathedral

The Half Penny Bridge over the River Liffey

St Stephen's Green

How was your New Year?
