Having a breather from personal opinions and expressed views, I am taking a leaf from my fellow blogger and my fellow Publishing friend, Amy over at her blog, I’ve decided to list a few of my favourite things this week.
Friday Favourites is to write a few things you’ve enjoyed this week, and combine them in a post on Friday.
So here’s to Friday and here’s to a few of my favourites this week:
Costa Coffee Takeaway Cups:
Costa is my go to coffee place, for those early morning lectures and much needed coffee breaks. I always enjoy a vanilla latte, with frothy milk and the sweet syrup. And of course, the build up to Christmas brings new flavours. However, I’ve fallen in love with their Christmas takeaway penguin cups. It’s not just Christmasy, it’s wintery, and it brings a sense of warmth and fun with my early morning coffee – the only problem is, the penguin doesn’t have eyes! Amy and myself decided to draw some eyes on my empty cup this morning, he looks much better.
I don’t know when it’s acceptable to start wearing the warm winter accessories, but I’ve started this week. I’m tired of my hands feeling frostbitten and cold, so I bought out the gloves, my black wooly gloves. Admittedly they aren’t those sensitive touch finger gripped ones, so using my phone is out of the question. No matter, I like feeling my fingers.
I love this stuff. I actually can’t get enough of it. I’m trying to include fresh veg into my diet, daily and spinach has become of my go to greens. It’s ricy in iron, which is something I lack, and it’s dark green colour contains high levels of health promoting chemicals which have anti-inflammatory and anti-cancerous properties! plus it’s great for my eyesight apparently. When in doubt, add spinach!
Mandarin and Cranberry flavoured still water:
I am not a water fan. I am one of those fussy people who think that water just doesn’t taste nice. Yes I’ve heard it all before… “But it doesn’t taste of anything” and that’s my point. It’s horrible and tap water is just the worst. I only drink water when I’m really ill, most of the other times, I drink diluted squash but even then, the amount of squash added to the water is probably twice the recommended amount. However, I am partial to a flavoured water every now and then. I drink volic strawberry water sometimes but the taste gets stale pretty quick. Having recently started working in the co-op, I’ve developed a real taste for their still and sparking flavoured waters. The mandarin and cranberry one being the top of my list. I’m even proud as to say I’ve drank a 1 litre bottle to myself, in a day – and that’s saying something for someone whose addicted to caffeine, and all things sugar!
