Hi sweethearts, hope you are having a great Sunday! I’ve had a weekend of birthday celebrations as I turn 33 tomorrow. Yesterday James and I went out for a movie, meal and cocktails date which was very pleasant but more on that in a moment!

When I was down in London last week I picked up a couple of sachets of purition protein powders including this pistachio flavoured one, definitely a thumbs up from me!
Last Sunday I did my 6 mile run, then during the week I just managed to fit in some little yoga workouts then yesterday I did another 6 miles. I would have aimed for 7, but my Run Keeper app went totally weird so I had no idea what my distance would be, so I just stuck to the same route I did last week. Happy that I seem to be getting on ok with the running finally!
I went out for afternoon tea with friends on Friday and wore this maxi skirt which had previously been a strapless dress. I loved the print when I saw the dress in Primark on sale down to just £5 so I thought I’d buy it and just cut the top off and make into a skirt.
This week I’ve just really enjoyed going out with friends and James and I going out yesterday. We went to see the new Mission Impossible movie at the Tyneside Cinema and booked a sofa for our seats, then we had a drink in the Tyneside bar before a meal at Dabbawal followed by a cocktail at No 28. Also…
Getting a big iHerb order // seeing Finley playing with his friends // lovely thoughtful presents from friends and family // looking forward to my me day tomorrow // spending time at the Tyneside Cinema, it’s one of my favourite places // listening to some old fave tunes // having myself an afternoon off to nap and watch a movie = bliss!

How has your week been? Do you like cocktails? I had a delicious lemon sherbet cocktail and then a ginger lime one with bourbon, they are definitely a favourite treat! When was the last time you ate out? Where did you go?
