The Sunday Post: The Two C’s

Ahhh, the two C’s: coffee and cake. I’ve decided that cake on a Saturday cannot become a regular thing. As yummy and flour free as this weekends slice was – I’m not sure my high waisted jeans can take it. This week has been really up and down and filled with distractions – I lack concentration enough as it is – so it’s been a tough one. Most of the time I’ve been feeling really content, but I’ve just had some awesome work confirmed for Wednesday that has set my nerves into overdrive. Don’t worry, I’ll be vlogging it, you won’t miss naathin’. I also got Netflix this week, so if things get a little quiet on my end I haven’t copped it – I’m just seriously engrossed in American Horror Story/House of Cards/Orange Is The New Black. Viewing suggestions are highly welcome.

Yesterday I shot some outfit photos (the weather has been so spring-like this week!) before grabbing coffee and cake with Josh. Small Batch is a coffee branch that has literally started to take over Brighton, we have more of them than we do Starbucks! One of the things I love/hate is that they purposefully don’t offer any kind of internet access, and signal is always really bad inside, meaning you have to actually talk to the person you’re with. They also do a stellar slice of cake (and you know the coffee definitely isn’t one to be sniffed at either).

Hope you’ve all had a lovely weekend x

    I'd better not fight it 😉

    Cake is the most amazing thing! I steer clear because I don't your resolve not to indulge too often.

    I would suggest you check out Scandal. It's a great and engaging show, which I suppose is slightly similar to House of Cards.

    I'm totally obsessed with American Horror Story!! I kinda fell in love with Tate in the first season (yes I know he was slightly psychopathic). I will always recommend Supernatural as such an entertaining show to watch. I know there have been so many seasons already but it is seriously so worth it! (Plus…two super hot guys).

    I am truly truly obsessed with you and your blog + youtube. I accidentally clicked on one of your videos and i got hooked straight away, i always look forward to your posts because they're so down to earth and you have the prettiest pictures to go along with them. Plus i'm glad someone still uses the iphone 4s as i seem to be the only one on the planet who hasn't upgraded yet. Sorry for rambling on and on. I just wanted to share my gratitude. Amazing post as usual thank you.
