We spend SO much time doing things for other people these days, that we don't often find time to sit and do things for us, or give ourselves some good old fashioned 'me time'. So this weekend, I did just that.
It started off with some amazing dough balls and pizza at Pizza Express on Friday evening with some of the work girls, simply for congratulating ourselves for getting through the week! ...Don't judge, we felt it was justified!
I then spent Saturday firstly, doing a few errands in town before heading to Starbucks (I seriously need to stop going in here... they might as well just put half my wage straight into Starbuck's account to be honest) and settling down in the corner with a coffee and my book! I can literally spend hours in a coffee shop doing this kind of thing, and it really relaxes me and gives me some time to chill!
Not only do I get to read my book, but I also get to people watch. A lot. In a non-creepy way. Obvs....
I love watching the different people that come in and out of the coffee shop! I just sit and wonder what their story is. Where are they from? Why are they in town? Who are they having coffee with? And most importantly... what are they drinking?
Saturday evening was a quite one in preparation for getting up bright and early to meet Alice for a lovely chat to cheer me up and a Frankie & Benny's breakfast! If anyone has never had a F&B's breakfast, you need to fix this ASAP!
I'll always have the bacon and pancakes with syrup, and literally can't get enough of it. At only £5 as well... if I knew it wasn't so calorific I'd definitely be there most weekends!
They have loads more on the menu too, as well as lighter options for the lighter price of £3.95. Seriously guys, go and try it!
After breakfast, I had a bit more time to browse round the shops before I went to get my nails done!
One of my lovely friends, Chloe, is a beauty therapist and so I went over to get my nails done and have another good natter while we were at it! I'd not seen Chloe in absolutely ages so it was such a good excuse to have a catch up, and the perfect way to end my weekend as well!
How do you like to give yourself some me time?
