What Katie Did #3

What Katie Did #3

Hello Lovelies

It’s that time again! A weekly round up! I must get more in to the habit of taking pictures again. Admittedly I don’t carry my Canon 1ds everywhere with me, that would just be silly so I need to remember to snap away with my phone for quick decent quality pictures!

Hopefully next weeks WKD will be better as I’ll have been to London!

Jean Genie

The highlight of my week has probably been me buying new jeans, thanks to my diet they are 2 sizes smaller than the pair I entered the shop in. I was both proud and smug as I treat myself to a cheapo pair of Tesco black skinny jeans.

Bitches be fake

I’m stock piling false eyelashes (It’s a secret, I can’t tell you!) and I was recommended to buy some Kiss false nails so it would be rude not to buy them too right?

Leopards eat Flamingos

I recently saw this gorgeous coraly peach flamingo slouch shopper bag and it was love at first sight. No lies. I ummed and aahed about going back to buy it but after some gentle persuasion I went back and it now be mine. Took a quick snap at the tills as I felt a bit pattern crazy!

All work and no play makes Katie dull

I spent a large chunk of this weekend working. I have been working with some new clients so I have not stopped beavering away. My filofax flex has turned in to part of me, i’d be lost without it. It runs my life, my business AND Mr T’s life!

The USB drive is a little nod to Mr Tramp. I got in a bit of a strop with my laptop on Wednesday night trying to do some basic graphics work and it was just having none of it…. I came home from work & Slimming World at the end of the week to find a brand new, sexy laptop waiting for me to fire up and tackle the world on. I’m using it now and it’s awesome. The USB drive was used to transfer files!

One of these days these boots are gonna walk all over you

I bought these on a whim at Christmas from an ebay seller as a slight dupe of the Topshop Allegras. I knew I wouldn’t get my wear out of the real Allegras making the outlay a bit silly so I got these for £19.99 including postage, brand new. Can’t go wrong at that and i’ve enjoyed wearing them for work.

When the Moon hits your eye like a big, delicious, cheesy, gooey pizza pie, that’s AMORE.

Following Slimming World, we worked out that it was roughly over a weeks Syn points to have a Dominos. This ruined Mr T’s world I can tell you that. What you are looking at is a Syn Free pizza. It was filling and tasty. Bit of a taste sensation to get used to, but tasty. I’ve had such fab feedback from my SW Syn Free recipes so far I think i’m going to introduce a recipes tab up there at the top to hold them all.

Eye Eye, what do I see here then?

Had a bit of a calamity and made my eye bleed, not for the squeamish but I removed a skintag myself (which is perfectly safe to do so) but boy do those little blighters bleed! Blood pooling in my eye was a bit scary but it’s all safe and well!

Anniversaries come but once a year

Middle L – R : Koutoubia Minaret, Marrakech // Captiol Building, Havana // Palma Cathedral
Bottom L – R : Far side of Alcatraz from the water //  Hotel Excalibur, Las Vegas // Alcatraz rec yard at sunset

Mr T and I had our 5th Wedding anniversary in October and 5th is wood. As husband and I are both keen on photography and quite frankly his photos are always AMAZING, I surprised him with a montage of our first 5 year of marriage in the medium of photography… in a wooden frame. It left him speechless and it makes the most fantastic piece of art in our house as it’s truly truly personal. Great talking point too.

Anyways, I only just got round to hanging the picture, shame on me!!

So, as you’ll see I haven’t had that much of a riveting week! I promise you i’ll be more exciting from now on!

What have you done this week? Anything exciting? Tell me!

      I used to be a chef but I never have the time to get creative which is a damn shame but I am determined to make SW friendly alternatives!
