Five On Friday..

Friday already!? This week has whizzed by! Do you think so too?

I have so many plans for this weekend. How about you? Anything fun planned?

Today I am sharing 5 photos so you can get an idea of my week so far:

1.) I have lots of baking recipes I need to make up. Some Valentine cake recipes to try out and some ready made puff pastry needs using up!! I love homemade baking and cakes, don’t you?

Cakes, pastries, pies, yum yum!

Do you like to bake too?

2.) My 12-year-old son has a race on Saturday. I can not wait to watch it. It has been a while since I last got to see him race and he has improved a lot since then. Got to love getting the children fit and into exercise, especially running. I am so please my son loves running. It is so good for him.

Do you like to run?

3.) Love my red lipstick in Winter. It makes me feel a lot better wearing some colour. Red is my favourite colour and my son brought me some matching lipstick and nail varnish for Christmas that I love wearing.

What are your favourite coloured lipstick and nail varnish?

4.) I am not a big coffee drinker but I love a few cups of cappuccino every day. I ran out in the week and I am so missing them so much. Not that much I want to pay over the odds at our local shop though! I can not wait to go and buy some more!

Do you drink coffee or more of a tea fan?

5.) Back at the gym this week and I am in some pain, haha!!

As someone said:

“This is your moment. Celebrate the pain.”

Yeah, love the pain from exercise… Not!!

    Loving the new blog hun! Very stylish. I am a BIG coffee drinker, I think I'm actually getting worse (if that's possible!). I tried for a while to have orange juice in a morning instead of coffee but then I started putting on weight and blamed the juice (it could have been the ridiculous amounts of fast food…). Good luck to your son for his race, I'm sure he'll do great. I've watched your posts on Facebook over the last year and I think he's doing so well with it! :)Thanks so much for linking with #PoCoLo, Stephanie and I really appreciate it. x

    From Morgan's comment, it sounds like you've had the decorators in and your blog looks lovely! Really fabulous! 🙂 I do love that coffee picture, it's really cool. Agree though, shop bought coffee isn't cheap! Too expensive to do everyday.

    I love puff pastry. It's so versatile and I always have some in the fridge. Hope the race wasn't a wash out
