Weekly Roundup #1

6 January 2019

Hello and welcome to my first 'weekly roundup'...In an effort to keep myself blogging regularly throughout 2019 and to share my everyday loves {those things that I love, that don't quite need an entire blog post dedicated to them}, I'll be posting a weekly roundup every Sunday of the year {hopefully!}. In these posts, I'll be sharing what I've been up to that week, some bits that I've loved and what I've been buying...I hope you enjoy! 

With this being the first week of the new year, it's fair to say life has been a bit all over the place. On the 1st I travelled back to London, and with not starting work again until Friday, I couldn't seem to shake that 'crimbo limbo' feeling {I hate that word}. However I did manage to get my act together a little and join the gym. I know what you're all thinking...it's just a 'new year, new me' fad and I won't stick to it {you're probably all right}, but this time I want to give it a proper go. I feel like I've done the hard work of losing weight, so now it's time to tone up and also just get myself back into a regular routine. Unfortunately the first week of the year was ruined a little as I managed to get tonsillitis and the flu at the same time so I've not managed to make it to the gym just yet, but there's always next week!

I've also spent my days off work planning blog posts for this month, and also taking some photos while I had the privilege of daylight hours to myself. I'm determined to find my place in the blogging world again this year, and getting ahead and planning should hopefully help with this. 

All in all, it's been a slow start to the year, which was very much needed after the chaos of Christmas and travelling around. I returned to work this week too, so really I've just been focussing on getting everything back on track - ready to smash 2019.

What I've Been Buying:

This week I've been treating myself in the boxing day sales {after saying I wasn't going to shop - oops}. There were a few things I needed to get, trainers and a new sports bra being the main necessary purchase as mine were both so worn out. I also placed quite a large order from Anthropologie, as there were a few bits I'd had my eye on for quite some time, and I can never resist an anthropologie sale! I also picked up a new faux fur coat from Warehouse after seeing it on Jodie Melissa and a few new pieces of knitwear to see me through the winter. 

Read of The Week:

This week I've had my head stuck into Eat Drink Nap by Soho House. I love a good novel, but I'm also a bit obsessed with coffee table books and this one is a great one. I was given this one for Christmas and I've not put it down since. If you love home decor, entertaining or cooking, this one is for you. It has some of their famous recipes, goes into the inspiration behind each of their venues and some tips on how to decorate your home, host a party, make the perfect cocktail and so on! Essentially, it's a guide on how to bring a little bit of Soho House into your own home {and the mac and cheese recipe looks divine!}.

Recipe of The Week:

One recipe I've been loving this week are these Chunky Halloumi Chips by Nadiya Hussein. I'm a big lover of anything halloumi, and I've tried countless halloumi recipes but this is by far the best. We made these when we had some friends over for dinner over Christmas and they went down a treat. The dressing adds a little bit of a twist, and a more exotic kick to the recipe - perfect for impressing friends or just for a family lunch!
