My week in pictures #1

As I am using February to give my blog a makeover, I am scheduling more posts and decided to have ‘My Week In Pictures’ most weeks on Sundays to give a personal edge to my blog and help me keep up with regular posts. I will also be having a new theme and #tastytuesday which will be a food post or recipe. So get ready for regular posts, hopefully better content and a better layout. I am going to try to more beauty and fashion posts too, so keep an eye out. I’d love to know what you think when its all set up.

So this week I have swapped chocolate for a low calorie hot chocolates, I got the idea after watching a this video from Helen Anderson its really helped me cut out chocolate and I don’t snack at all now, which was my big let down to myself. I have also have a lovely treat sent to my from Boomf, you can see my review on them here. Making my hot chocolates a little bit more naughty but is a nice treat after a long day.

It was also Valentines day yesterday, my boyfriend made me some lovely special dinners on Friday and Saturday night, one of which was his home made spaghetti bolognese which is my absolute favourite, we were both skint this weekend so we are going to have our own Valentines day after pay day, Valentines day isn’t about presents and we spent the day together and it was lovely. We do want to treat each other though when we have some spare money.

I held a charity day at work and helped raised money for a good cause, Zoe’s place, a baby hospice in Coventry. Then being in the charitable mood I have signed up for Meat free week, you can sponsor me here, I would really appreciate it! I would to know if you are taking part too.

What have you been up to this week?
