Hi Everyone! How has your weekend panned out so far? For me, this has been the first weekend since I started my new job that I haven’t had to log on and work from home so I’m wildy estactic to have my weekend back but of course fate decided to hand me a cold on Thursday to greet the weekend with so I spent most of it sleeping and not crossing off any of the things I set out to do on my weekend list (am I the only who makes these?) and now that I’m starting to get better, I’ve passed on the cold to the bf! Oppsy – Sharing is Caring?
We did manage to go out for some fresh air on Saturday and on the way home from Portabello market, stopped by a Portuguese Patisserie for some hot coffee and Patel Del Nata (Portuguese tarts) which we’re both fans of ever since falling in love with the taste of them on one of our first trips to Porto (Portugal) and then indulging in the world famous ones from Belem, Lisbon for Easter this year. How do I describe it to those who haven’t tasted them before? It’s a mixture of crunchy, slightly savoury flaky pastry offset by sweet, light creamy custard filling which leaves a slight sugary burnt flavour that melts in your mouth and it can be hard to stop at one. The ones we found in West London were tasty and transported us back to those Spanish and Portuguese local crowded cafes where there were never enough tables/chairs to sit so you would stand by the bar scoffing the tarts down as as they rushed and poured the coffee at the bar before adding steaming milk at the very last minute.
Eating these tarts has really made me miss travelling. One of the main reasons we moved to London was to see Europe and while we traveled almost every fortnight to a new city in Europe, we have since slowed down in the last 6 months.
Anyway, before I start heading down memory lane and start posting all my travel pics, here are my favourite 5 pics this week reblogged from my tumblr over the past few weeks. This week’s pictures are forming my Autumn Fall inspired looks …
I must admit that being sick this week has somehow not suppressed or affected my ability to shop at all, funny that. I’ve been very bad (insert guilty face) and have picked up a few goodies which I can’t wait to post and share with you in my next post so stayed tuned soon I hope you have a great week – I’m off to do some research on vitamins as I’ve been told that taking supplements can really help prevent getting sick. I’m with a cold almost every few months and Winter is descending on us here in Europe.
Do you guys take vitamin supplements, whether it be for hair/skin/nails or everyday vitamins and do you find that they work? Would be curious to hear your thoughts!
