This Week | 18

Other than the amazing meet-up in Covent Garden with a lovely bunch of bloggers, this week was one of those weeks where I didn't have much planned and I basically just did whatever I felt like doing each day, which was pretty perfect. 
- I have been trying to eat well each morning and I think this week I did quite well at it, as tempting as pancakes and french toast are, I've tried to stick to lots of fresh fruit this week, usually with yoghurt or wholegrain, or in the form of breakfast smoothies. On days where I wanted something more savoury;  poached eggs with avocado or smoked salmon were this weeks faves. 

- As I am back at uni very soon, I've been trying to spend as much time with my family in London as I can, especially with my youngest sister as it's crazy how fast she's growing up and I just love taking her out and spoiling her while I can. I took her to the cutest little treat boutique called 'Drink Me, Eat Me' which had lots of cupcakes, fresh pastries, customisable frozen yoghurt, and as many vintage and pastel decorations as you could possibly think of, from the teacups to the chairs we sat on. After that we went home and did some arts and crafts, which I used to love doing as a child so it's nice to get to share something like that with her, regardless of how basic (or some may say nonexistent) my artistic skills are. 

- Another thing I've been doing is making dinner for everybody and trying to learn new recipes from my mum. I'm a complete foodie who has far too much fun going through recipe books so I'm definitely in my element whenever I learn to make a new dish. 

- This week I felt like I have spent quite a bit of time waiting for packages to arrive, as I'd ordered a few things in the previous weeks where I've had no time to do any shopping, so this week was fun receiving them all - still waiting for an Asos one though! 

- As I had quite a bit of time to myself, I had a day where I just felt like wandering around and just having some general me time, listening to music and not thinking about what time it was or what I had to get done. I think spending time like that once in a while is really important. 

What did you get up to last week? Let me know in the comments below!
