Sourdough scrambled eggs

Happy Easter Sunday! Hope you are all having a great day so far and don’t have too much of a chocolate coma. I do love the long Easter weekend and James and I have been trying to make the most of it. Yesterday we had a little trip to Newcastle and enjoyed breakfast out. I had the most delicious sourdough toast with scrambled eggs and a decaf latte from Olive and Bean.

Of course I have also had some Easter chocolate treats…

Eat

Workouts this week

  • Monday – gym – 10 minutes step machine, 10 minutes bike, squats, chest press with straight back, shoulder presses
  • Tuesday – Kristin McGee Power Yoga app
  • Wednesday – gym – 10 minutes step machine, 10 minutes bike, lunges, bicep curls, tricep kick backs
  • Thursday – Rest
  • Friday – Rest
  • Saturday – Rest (although walking around the shops which is beginning to count as blimmen exercise for me these days!)
  • Sunday – did my own yoga routine for 30 minutes this morning

I feel like I’m finding a nice groove with workouts now. Of course they are way less than what I was doing before I was pregnant, but they are keeping me healthy and active. 

Wear

Leather jacket maxi skirt denim shirtleather jacket: Warehouse, denim skirt: New Look, statement necklace: H&M, maxi skirt: Primark, white vest: H&M, converse trainers

Now that the weather is getting better I’ve been enjoying wearing maxi skirts. My old ones fit fine and I just wear some thin leggings underneath to make them more comfortable and keep me a little warmer. I do wish you could see that necklace I’m wearing in the pic a little better, loving the big jewelled statement necklaces again! I picked up a couple of bits and pieces in town yesterday including more longer length vest tops as I’ve been wearing them non stop. I also grabbed a plain black maxi dress (in a size bigger for the bump) and some gold sandals from Primark that I’m looking forward to wearing soon.

Gluten and diary free goodies

I received this lovely parcel in the post packed with gluten and diary free goodies from Woman and Home Eating Smart magazine. I’ve been addicted to the Chot Shot sauce and pesto! Also…

pretty sure I’m feeling the baby move now! // strawberries and watermelon // having a really good catch up with my friends and work colleagues // planning our trip to Brighton in two weeks time // still using my home made ice cream maker // a few exciting little things happening business and blog wise // getting an advance copy of Sarah Wilson’s I Quit Sugar for life before I interview her soon, the recipes are amazing! // home made raw chocolate

Ahh so I am definitely ready to chill out for the rest of the Easter weekend now, with a bit of work thrown in I think. Last week did get a bit stressful when our broadband went down, honestly how did we cope before the internet? It got sorted pretty quick thankfully. This afternoon we are off to my parents for Easter Lunch which will be lovely. It’s quite an amazing thought that this time next year we’ll have a 6 month old baby with us!

How are you spending the rest of the Easter break? Do you still get Easter eggs, and what’s your favourite kind?

    Mmmm to strawberries with almond butter :)
    We didn’t buy each other Easter eggs, although I did get a box of Montezuma peanut butter mini eggs- the most amazing invention!

    Yay for maxi dresses! I do love them. You look great in your outfit.
    My favourite eggs are the ones that have interesting things in them – like fudge pieces or caramel chips. Otherwise I find it a bit too overly chocolately.

      Thanks Anna :-) After this weekend I know what you mean about them being a little too chocolately!

    I ate a homemade ester egg – yum – and then enjoyed spinning it off in a very sweaty spin class this morning!
    You are doing such a great job with all your free lancing – it would be great to hear your top tip on blogging/freelancing/life at some point – maybe you’ve already done this . Looking wonderfully preggers and as always a total inspiration:) enjoy your bank holiday!

      That sounds like a plan! I definitely want to try making my own raw chocolate eggs one year. I will definitely do a post on that, I did so a post a while ago, but not on the life balance thing – consider it in the pipeline!

    That outfit! Bang on trend! Statement necklaces are so hot right now :D (even though yours is slightly hiding).
    I’ve never seen Cadbury mini eggs over here.. so its understandable I want them all the more ;) .
    Could you describe the taste of tahini to me pretty please? I usually just brush by it when passing enroute to the nut butters.

    Reply
    • Laura

      Thanks! The tahini is a hard one to describe, I guess it’s a little bitter but has a really earthy taste and a lovely drippy texture. I do think it’s one of those things you’ll love or hate though!

    Hope you had a lovely Easter weekend. Lots of nice looking eats here. I got a few eggs, a dark choc mint hotel chocolat one was the highlight for me! I’m spending Easter at home with the family, nice and chilled.

    I am obsessed with choc shot at the moment too. It is SO good.
    Also, I can’t believe that I forgot to buy some mini eggs this year. Easter fail!
