A Few of My Favourite Things & A Giveaway!

This week I've been loving:

Photobucket

1. Dinner at Terrace in the Fields. I snapped up a Groupon offer for The Terrace after dining there a couple of summers ago. It's a really unique restaurant - Caribbean inspired food in a beautiful setting, right in the middle of London's Lincoln's Inn Fields. I had tilapia with a crab and mango salad which was lovely and then shared the blueberry pancakes with my mum. I'd definitely recommend a visit if you're looking for a special meal somewhere a little different.

2. I was in too much of a rush to take a proper outfit photo of this dress so please excuse the mirror shot and messy room! I'm loving how the nice weather means pretty dresses, bare legs and flip flops. I hope the sun stays around for a while as it makes me feel so much happier and London looks so beautiful bathed in sunlight! The dress is from the Laden Showroom in Brick Lane which is a great place for independent designers and getting something a little different.

3. I won Becka's blog giveaway and these lovely prizes arrived this week. Can't wait to watch The Devil Wears Prada!

4. I tried my hand at polka dot nails afer reading Gem's tips. Really impressed with how easy they were to do! I used Essie's Lollipop as the base and Nails Inc/Diet Coke's London for the polka dots applied with the end of a kirby grip.

5. My favourite summer beverage - Caffe Nero's iced soya latte.

What are you loving this week?

I also have a giveaway for you this week!

You might have seen my post on 9 Bars from earlier in the week. I met the people behind 9 Bar at the Vitality Show a few weeks ago and they havecvery kindly offered 12 of my followers the change to win a sample pack of 9 Bars:

  13. 9 reasons I'd like to win these 9 bars.....
    1) I've only tried the nutty one and it was yummy!
    2) Carob rocks my socks off!
    3) They'd make the perfect snack on a Friday, when I don't get a lunch break at work (i.e they'd stop me getting cranky!)
    4) They're a little bit nutty, just like me :-)
    5) Great to chew, even better to share - my boyfriend and I have a little ritual of trying new health bars when we're out walking :-)
    6) I need me some omegas! They keep my brain ticking and will give my skin a boost
    7) 9 bars could fuel me through 9 glorious runs in the sun!
    8) No animals were harmed in the making of these bars - dairy free :-)
