…are the two words that would best describe my week! The highlight has undoubtedly been my first hot yoga class at the wonderful Yogalilies:
I absolutely loved it! This is the kind of yoga that I adore, hot, sweaty and challenging yet relaxing at the same time. I really liked the feel of the studio which is located in the centre of Newcastle and everyone was very friendly and welcoming. The lovely Lissa has invited me to try one of her Pilates classes and I can’t wait! I will certainly be back for more of that yoga!

If you’re in the UK I’m sure you’ll agree that we have had a fantastic week of sunshine. I’ve been craving smoothies like a crazy person and have had two a day minimum! Here’s some of my faves from the week:
Pineapple, romaine, vanilla sun warrior protein powder x 2, water, ice, maca, ground flax, goji’s, coconut
If I had been at home during the day I would have probably been making them for lunch! Obviously there have been salads:
I also thought the warm weather provided a good excuse to use up some Pure Wraps. These are made from coconut meat and are completely raw. I had them for lunch with home made hummus and a big pile of veggies plus an apple on the side:
Then again for breakfast with almond butter and strawberries (plus a vanilla smoothie with sea salt on the side)
They are so delicious both sweet and savoury!
The hot weather has also encouraged me to finally get my summer wardrobe into action! I love being able to get my legs out and wear lighter clothing for a change:
Two of my outfits from this week: floral tea dress: Florence and Fred @ Tesco, yellow cardy:H&M, sandals: New Look, wooden bangles: Oasis // pink floaty vest top: H&M, linen trousers: Dorothy Perkins, necklace: New Look, gold sandals: Next
