FlowersFlowers to pick me up after my car needed to be fixed!

Hey everyone, I hope you’ve had a great week and are enjoying your Sunday! How are you feeling with the clocks going forward? I’m just focusing on Easter weekend coming up and the extra time I’ll have with James and Finley and hopefully some more sleep! It’s been a busy, busy week. Mostly good, but Finley has been loaded with cold, and yesterday the exhaust decided to fall off my car. Whoop. I did get it fixed easily and quickly. I’m taking it as a sign from the universe to take better care of my car!

Another pretty good week of workouts, unfortunately the weather was horrid on Thursday morning so I didn’t run. I’m perfectly happy with the fact that I’m a fair weather runner!
 
Wear
Army jacket outfit
Back pack: ASOS // Army style jacket: Next // Scarf: Vero Moda // Black tee: ASOS // Jeans: Mango
 
I’m a little happier with my wardrobe now that I have those basics from ASOS. I just wish the weather would improve, I’m ready for it to be warmer and brighter now! This week I’ve really been loving my back pack which I also ordered from ASOS last week. It’s so handy when I’m wearing Finley and I can fit all his stuff in it too.

Kate Spade Two Piece Case for iPhone 6 Apple Store UK

I upgraded to an iPhone 6 with a shit tonne of capacity. I bought my iPhone 5S last year and it was doing my head in as I constantly ran out of space. Since I had Finley I’ve found that I use my phone more and more for everything, so upgrading it is so worth it. I traded in my old phone and my iPad for this, and got this pretty Kate Spade case to go with it. I can’t wait to go crazy with some new apps! I love it when I upgrade something truly useful in my life! Also…

My amazing mama friends + coffee and playdates with them. They are so supportive too :-) // getting this blog properly mobile responsive // the Balanced app – this is going to change my life! // some great sessions with my clients and a great call with my mentor // writing my latest newsletter // working on my e course (you are going to love it!) // Finley looking so adorable in denim and stripes

    I am in desperate need of a new phone – my 4S is nearly three years old and has definitely seen better days! Those plantain muffin look so yummy! x

      My phone was really driving me crazy, so lovely to have a phone with space on for music and apps!

    I saw that shake in pret this week and was very tempted! The only app I have bought is the pocket cast app and I love it for podcasts. Most of mine are running related – strava, garmin connect for my vivo fit , running bug and also google calendar but that came with it.
    I woke up at half 6 today ( so half 7 ) so have already been for a run – I thought I would sleep later seeing as the clocks go forward.

      I definitely want to try Run Keeper for my phone again to track them, I’ll have to check out the pocket cast app as well :-)

    I just got the iPhone 6 too! I popped into the Apple store to sort out a battery problem and found out I was due a (nearly) free upgrade :)
    The apps I use most regularly are probably Evernote, Dropbox and then London travel ones (citymapper, Bus times, etc. ). I’m going to check back here to see what others your readers suggest.

      Ooh I bet that was nice! I love Evernote and Dropbox, my other faves are Sunrise (as a calendar app), Pinterest, Balanced (which I love!) x

    As always some lovely looking foods here. I used to make chicken bone broth in the past, it’s really nice but these days I don’t eat chicken anymore, however maybe when/if I have children I will start making this broth again.
    Look forward to your responsive site so I can browse it easily on my smartphone. Hopefully it’s completed before Google’s new mobile algorithm goes live!

      I hope you’ve been able to access the mobile version of the site now!

    I’ve been trying the Calm app lately. It’s a meditation app i’d definitely recommend. I’ve surprised myself by actually using it!

      I’ll have to take a look at that, I do need to get back into come meditation. I also like the Mindful App :-)

    That cherry smoothie looks amazing!
    I just ordered a new top from ASOS and want more more more! Especially long tops to wear with leggings but they seem to be so hard to find?!

      I used to only be able to find longer tops in H&M, I know what you mean they are hard to find!

    Love that new phone case Laura, very pretty!
    I’m terrible at looking after my car, I have a company car so it doesn’t feel like “mine” – or at least that’s my excuse!!

    Reply
    • Laura Agar Wilson

      Haha, I think that would be my excuse as well! I really need to show mine some TLC and get it cleaned!

    Amazing eats as always Laura, your morning bowls of oats and smoothies always look so gorgeous and yum!!

    I keep meaning to get the iPhone 6..I’m sure I’m due an upgrade any time around now too so I may have to treat myself :) As far as apps go, I love 8tracks and Soundcloud for finding new music, Shazam for when I hear a song when I’m out and about and I want to know the name of it so I can download it later haha, and then I basically have a load of photography ones like VSCOcam for different filters and photo editing :) And of course I love having Twitter, Instagram and I use MyFitnessPal for tracking food :)

    • Laura Agar Wilson

      Thanks! You definitely need to get yourself one, I’m loving mine! I’ll have to get some music apps like 8 tracks again. For photography I’m loving Aviary at the moment :-)

    I know I’m childish but the photo of the sweet potato made me laugh – at first I was like “what is THAT!?” hehe.
    I don’t tend to use many apps – just running ones (like Maria said) and the podcast one. Oh I have the Audible app so I can listen to my audio books as well.
    What a nightmare about your car. I hate anything car-related so dread anything happening!

    Reply
    • Laura Agar Wilson

      OMG I know, I actually thought twice about posting it but I thought I was the only one that would think that, obviously me and you having similar mind sets lol ;-) I’ll have to start trying Audible, I love walking with Finley so that would be handy for listening to things while we are out.

    I’ve read the yogic sleep link this week too! It’s funny! I already had a few apps and a few downloads on my ipod and I love it to help me relax before falling asleep.

    Reply
    • Laura Agar Wilson

      I wish I could listen to more things before bed but I risk waking up Finley as he sleeps right next to me! I really do need to try that yogic sleep thing though!
