Green people haul

Happy Sunday, I hope you lovely lot have all had a good week! Mine has been a good one, starting with a delivery of more natural and organic skin and make up goodies from Green People. The lipstick is a real fave, I’ll do a little review of them all later in the month. 

Eat

I’ve been snacking a little more this week, my appetite is really up a notch! Of course green smoothies for the #KHGSgreensmoothiechal have been featuring a lot, but more on them tomorrow. Here’s some highlights…

Each night I’ve really fancied something a little chocolately so I’ve been making a little mini cup of chocolate pudding by mixing a scoop of chocolate sun warrior protein powder with a bit of cocoa powder, water and stevia, yum!

I’ve also loved the raw crackers I bought when I was in London last week, I need more of these!

Last but not least I got an ice cream maker! I bought this one which had excellent reviews and is reasonably priced and it is awesome. I started by making some cherry almond frozen yoghurt:

Yesterday I made some raspberry chocolate ripple frozen yoghurt. Absolutely amazing, I am going to be addicted to using this machine!

Wear

White shirt and skinny jeans scarfBiker jacket: Warehouse, scarf: H&M, white long shirt: Primark, skinny maternity jeans: Primark, cream flats: Next

I love this outfit! It’s the best I’ve felt I’ve looked in a while. Last week I popped to the shops with James and as I’ve been saying I found a load of maternity stuff from Primark. As well as the skinny maternity jeans (just £7!) I got that white shirt from the regular range in a size up and I just love it. Worn with a nice bright scarf and I think it made a really nice outfit. 

Love

Tk maxx cushion and photo frame

Alongside clothes shopping I treated our flat to a few things! I know we have it up for sale, but I still want the place to look great while we are here. I got the gorgeous LOVE cushion and jewelled photo frame from TK Maxx and the brightly coloured floral cushion from BHS. I’ve also picked up some new bedding, all of which have been decent bargains. Also…

First Starbucks frappe of the year (I checked the caffeine content and they aren’t too bad) // healthy pick n mix from Holland and Barrett // that ice cream maker! // our Natal Hypnotherapy course and James being just amazing in working with me on the techniques (more to come in a pregnancy update) // making some big big plans for the future of the blog + business // getting stuck into some new photoshop techniques // great feedback from my 12 Weeks to Feeling Fabulous Course // everyone doing the #KHGSgreensmoothiechal and the pics of delicious green smoothies!
