Smoothie drinking, loafers and giraffe shoes.

The weather in London has been completely lush the past week, and luckily for me I have been house sitting the most beautiful house by Barnes pond. There’s something about living somewhere beautiful that makes you want to be organised and clean-living. Don’t get me wrong I don’t eat fry-ups every day of the week but I wanted to practise a bit of vitamining myself up while I had my own space for a few days, so out came the blender.

For my first smoothie breakfast I blended pear, coconut, kale, spinach and banana. It was really yummy and you couldn’t taste the spinach or kale at all, despite it being bright green!

I’ve also been running for 20 minutes every day. Which is not like me at all. My idea of exercise is a weekly bout of flinging myself around some reggae club night somewhere and then running for the night bus. It hasn’t been all healthiness though I have to be honest. For tea I have been having fish and chips, pizza etc and of course always a pudding.

Recently I have tried to cull my shopping outings by wearing items of clothing that have been sitting in my wardrobe untouched for years. It has been going quite well. I found these shiny loafers, which are quite jazzy.

When shopping I have also been trying to buy items that I think are fun and not boring. On a rare but recent shopping trip I bought these awesome giraffe (or african cow as my friends have renamed them) plimsolls. I hate wearing things that are really stereotypical and try to not belong to any sub-genre. I just sort of wear what I like and have fun with it.
