Uptown Funk

Hey everyone! Hope you’re all having a lovely evening.

I went to Chester on Saturday so my other half could do his theory test. I thought I would do some holiday shopping whilst I was there.

The only part-successful shop I did was in Primark. I say part-successful because, I didnt actually buy anything holiday related. Not a single item.

I prefer the Primark in Liverpool and Warrington to Chester by miles as there is way more to choose from!

So, in Primark, I literally RAIDED the Harry Potter section.

I put quite a few bits back and just chose 2 sets of pyjamas and a top.

This is honestly, the BEST thing Primark have ever done.

I LOVE HARRY POTTER!!

There was so much to chose from. If you’re a Harry Potter fan, go and raid the stores!

I met back up with Jay with the good news that he passed his theory test and we headed for some food.

We came across this funky shop. Gino’s Gelato. You could not walk passed that without taking a double glance.

There’s nothing I love more than fresh, self made food. Especially, when the presentation is as good as this!

I had Gino’s Special Crepe – Strawberries, Bananas and Nutella.

How cool is it?!

We drove back home for me to get busy baking a GIANT jaffa cake. My Mother-in-law requested it for her birthday.

Thanks for reading, I hope you enjoyed reading what I was up to at the weekend.

If anyone would enjoy reading cake recipes please comment below and I will share my recipe for the Jaffa Cake above.

What I Ate – Pancake Day 

Shrove Tuesday is one of many days where I like to dulge in Nutella. My gosh this is a heaven send. 

Toast? Nutella. Croissant? Nutella. Pancakes? NUTELLA!!! 

I have a tradition of going to my grandma’s on shrove Tuesday. I can’t beat her pancakes! 

I can’t really eat many of them and don’t like feeling sick on over eating something so sweet so she made us (me and my sister) some tea when we got there. 

I always like my pancakes with Nutella and strawberries but when o got to tesco there were none left! I still took my 1kg jar of Nutella though. 

My sister always has either lemon and sugar or just with syrup. 

This is what I Ate. 

Hope everyone enjoyed pancake Day!

Is it Christmas yet? 

Hi guys, hope you’ve all had the best weekend! 

I’m having an extra long weekend this week so I’ve spent it chilling out as I’ve been so stressed lately! I feel like a totally different person at the moment and feel like I need a massive break away! 

On Friday all I did was watch Christmas films all day and tried to eat clean! It’s weird but I’m ill at the moment as well and I’ve just had absolutely no energy! 

Yesterday I went to the Manchester Christmas markets with my mum and Sister. Just love when there on with all the festive lights. Hopefully next year I’ll manage to get myself over to Germany for the real German Christmas markets.


Banana and Nutella pancakes are the best. Nutella is heaven! 

Of course I had an amaretto hot chocolate too! 

I apologise for the lack of photos I’ve taken this weekend. 

Today I have chilled again and then went Christmas food shopping. The best part is buying all the rubbish to pig out on during Christmas time! 

I’ve also been getting all my baking stuff together for all my Christmas Cupcakes and a 70th Birthday cake which I’m making tomorrow. 

Going to have a very busy week but it will be worth it! I will show you all the results once I’m finished. 

Thanks for reading! 
Take care 🙂
