A quick outfit post and a hearty dinner!

It's tuesday. Phew! One day back at work and I'm already feeling knackered!
I used to be a brilliant eater when I was at uni, but my kitchen laziness has overcome me since working full time and now having such a teeny, freezer-less kitchen.

BUT, I have been trying recently to do more decent cooking, not just the quickest oven-ready meals I can purchase from the corner shop. And more vegetables!

Here's tonights hearty homemade meal....

I made a cheese, chive and herb potato bake, served with asparagus in garlic butter (which is my current favourite veggie dish, I did my asparagus like this yesterday too!). It was delicious, even if I do say so myself!

My not-so-perfect presentation, but my beautiful blue bird's are enjoying it!

Are you an inspired foodie? Or a lazy mabel? 

And a quick snap of today's outfit (though please ignore bad quality/cheesy grin!)...

Pale green knitwear: Charity shop.
YSL leather belt: Charity shop.
Tweed skirt: Primark.
Wool ankle socks: Topshop.
Brown brogues: Primark.

I'm off for a gin and elderflower (oh-so amazing), a quick nailpaint and bed.
Pip pip! xx

    Gin and elderflower- roughly 1 part gin, and 3 or 4 parts sparkling elderflower...and if you're feeling extra frivolous: fresh raspberries. Absolutely divine! I think this is my new favourite drink.
