midas touch


Seeee ya January! Thank god that's over... but we survived. This weekend was spent ushering in Feburary - drinks and dancing with friends, lazy pub lunches and a little mooch around the shops. I vowed back at the start of January not to buy any clothes until the end of February, and so far have succeeded! That does mean I've transferred by need-to-spend-money feeling on to home wares... post to come later this week! 

Highlights of the weekend? Lounging around Hannah's beautiful flat (follow her for wholefood deliciousness and some serious fitspo), super tasty eats and drinks at Turtle Bay in Southamptonseeing my pooch for a cuddle - the parents got custody when I moved out 18 months ago, and eating more great food in the form of an incredible mushroom risotto at The Weatsheaf in Farnham. Rich doesn't like mushrooms so I make a point of eating as many as I can when he's out or we eat out - I love them! I'm on the big save for a house purchase later this year, but figured if you can't have a little splurge on payday, then when can you?

Now we're off to the in-laws' house for dinner and cooing over our gorgeous niece... a perfect end to a Sunday afternoon spent marking essays! I'm also thinking of ordering the Canon 50mm 1.8 lens off Amazon tonight - what do you think?

  1. Well done on not buying any clothes, don't think I'd be able to manage it!

  2. I was at Turtle Bay Southampton the other weekend, love the drinks and food there! All your pictures of food look so yummy and delicious! I have a 50mm lens (the 1.4) so not quite the same but definitely my favourite purchase for a long time! There are so many highly praised reviews for the nifty fifty so I think it's worth a cheeky investment (but don't worry - I always take ages to persuade muself on a purchase like that too!) xxx

  3. So glad January is over! It was such a bad month! I totally agree about payday splurge though, it's what I have to look forward to!

  5. Sounds like a lovely weekend for you! That challenge to not by any clothes until the end of February sounds rather harsh to me! I could never achieve that! ;)

    Lovely photographs as usual, you have such a pretty blog

  6. Fab photographs! I'm gutted that I no longer live in Southampton, so Turtle Bay is a distant memory! Sigh!

  8. Mmmmm mushrooms!! Haha! I would definitely go for the 50mm 1.8, I got it last summer and I love it! Although I haven't been using it nearly enough!
