My Weekend in 24 Photos!
I felt as though I haven’t done a lifestyle post in quite awhile! I recently saw Kerri over at Crumbs in the Bed do a post on 1 day 12 pics, so I thought I would steal that idea but do it over a whole weekend. Make sure to check out her blog, one of my faves!
7.30am: Up very early as we were off to Castle Combe race circuit for a track day. The night before we drove out of London to Pauls parents so we didn’t have to battle any London traffic.
9.30am: We went to the drivers briefing in order to get our wrist band. Paul has driven this circuit many times, but this was my first time going out on track!
10:15am: It was time to go, here Paul is with his nice racing helmet waiting in the pits.
10:15am: Selfie time in my borrowed motorbike helmet before we went out (if you’re looking for a motorbike helmet but can’t decide on the best one, check out Box BX-1Plain helmet review to give you some more info! Wearing the right helmet is really important so you’re welcome in advance for the advice!) You have to wear a helmet to be allowed on track!
10:15am: Here is a view of the pit and the skyline in front of us before we went out.
11am: I didn’t get any pictures when we went out as it was very fast and I needed to hold on! But I really enjoyed it and Paul enjoyed being back on track again (he used to be a racing driver up until a few years ago).
2:30pm: We hung around Castle Combe for most of the day, and got to watch some of the drifting which I haven’t seen before.
4:30pm: We then headed back to Paul’s parents before going out for a meal. Here is their cute cat scampi!
4:30pm: I also picked up a Coke life during the day. I have a bit of a diet coke addiction so I was interested to know what this was like. It definitely tastes more like coke than diet coke. I did enjoy it but I don’t think it is a replacement.
6pm: I had a quick outfit, hair and make up change to get ready for dinner. I just bought this dress from Dorothy Perkins and love it! I really enjoy floral all year round.
7pm: We all headed out to a local pub and I had some delicious seafood fettucine! I feel like I don’t have fish/seafood as much as I would like so am making a conscious effort to have more when I go out.
9.30pm: We then drove back home after dinner, I recently won some B. products from Kelly over at The Vegan Taff (check out her awesome blog!) so I took the opportunity to try the micellar water. I haven’t used a micellar water but was very pleased with it! Really cuts through make up, though I did make the mistake of using it on my eye which stung quite a bit. I have learnt my lesson!
9am: Had a bit of a lie in this morning, here is my just woken up selfie.
10am: We had eaten quite a bit of junk at castle combe so decided to get a work out in. Paul went off to the gym and I did a work out video. This is my favourite set up where I can catch up on my youtube beauty bloggers at the same time! I did Jillian Michaels No More Trouble Zones which is certainly a work out.
11am: Here is my post workout selfie, great workout and was ready for a relaxed day!
11:30am: We were off to brunch with my sister so I did a quick make up look including, Nars creamy concealer, Benefit Fake Up, Urban Decay Primer Potion, Naked 1 palette, Benefit High Beam and Teeez Desert Metals Mascara. I also used my L’oreal Rouge Caresse lipsticks but didn’t get a picture. I have linked any relevant reviews on the above!
12:30pm: Paul and I then headed off for brunch with my sister and her boyfriend in Clapham. I had some delicious drop scones with berry coulis and greek yogurt.
3pm: Once we got home from lunch I went and picked up some ingredients for dinner.
3.30pm: I finally managed to have a sit down and catch up on some blog reading!
4pm: I had a bit of a play with my naked 3, I’m trying to come up with some wearable looks with the darker shades which I’m not as comfortably using – if you have any then please let me know!
5pm: We then started season 2 of American Horror Story. I think I prefer the first season so far but we will see, still great to watch!
6pm: I cooked up some Singpaore Noodles from Jamie Olivers Save With Jamie cook book and it was delicious.
7pm: I took a few pictures for some upcoming blog posts – and sat down to check my posts for the upcoming week.
9pm: Now I am sitting here writing this blog post, and soon to do a bit of cross stitch before bed! I haven’t taken that picture yet so I took this from my recent post on cross stitching.
Phew so there was my weekend! It was a pretty awesome weekend, I like mixing it up with a day doing something then a more relaxed day at home.
It’s the first time I’m doing a post like this so let me know what you think!
PS I am doing a palette give away at the moment, check it out here!
