Leaves and boots

It’s certainly been feeling a lot more autumnal in these parts this week! I just adore this time of year and I’m reminding myself to enjoy it as much as possible which this week has included some blustery but bright walks with Finley in the pram.


I’ve been on a porridge kick this week and my favourite way to eat it has been topped with Coconut Collaborative yoghurt! This was chocolate oats (just plain oats with cocoa powder added) topped with raspberry coconut yoghurt and a fig:

I also made toffee apple porridge topped with peanut butter. I used coconut sugar to sweeten the porridge and give it a toffee like flavour:

Juci wellbeing

Last but not least I was sent a 3 day detox range of juices from Juci Wellbeing. Obviously I didn’t do the detox with me breastfeeding but I did drink them along with my usual eats for a fruit and veggie boost!


Outdoor gym

No structured workouts this week, not even 10 minute ones, however I have done some more walking! Yesterday morning James and I took Fin on a long walk and came across this outdoor gym which I thought looked quite fun for something to use in the future. Of course I had to have a go of some of the equipment quite hilariously for James!

Yey I actually made it out of the yoga pants this week! 



On Friday I tucked Finley up in his Kari-me wrap and we had a walk around Durham. I got myself a chai latte from Cafe Nero and looked around the market and the shops while Finley slept snuggled in to me. He got lots of comments from passers by! It was just so nice to be out and about with him after the last couple of weeks we’ve had. Also…

How has your week been? Are you feeling autumnal yet? Have you seen or tried an outdoor gym before?
