It seems I've been enjoying a lot of food this week! From tacos to Nandos to a slice of cake at Caffe Concerto to Jamie's Italian, I've definitely been pigging out quite a bit. What can I say, I loooove food! Here's what I've been getting up to over the past 7 days...

Caffe Concerto
My mum and I went to Westfield for a spot of shopping on Thursday. I'd been at work for 7am to carry out a stock take so I was desperate for some food and shopping when the clock struck 12 (noon, not midnight!) We had lunch at Nandos, which was just what I needed as I hadn't eaten all day. We then looked around the shops for a few hours. I went into Topshop but didn't buy anything - SHOCKER. I did buy a couple of things from Urban Outfitters but I'll show you what I bought in a future post.

After hours of shopping we were most certainly shopped out. So, with sore feet and hands full with shopping bags, we trudged along to Caffe Concerto for cake. I had a Vanilla and Chocoloate Mousse slice, whilst my mum had the Black Forest gateau. She let me try a bit and it was amazing!

Jamie's Italian
After work on Friday I went out for a meal with a couple of my colleagues. It had been a long week so we were desperate for some food and wine (I wasn't keen on drinking much considering last week's antics). We headed up to Covent Garden and straight into Jamie's Italian. The food was delicious! We started off with bread and olives, shared 3 starters then moved onto our main course. It was so much food, and I actually think I had a food hangover the next morning. Yep, I didn't think that existed either!

I'll tell you more about the meal in another post!

Essie's Splash of Grenadine

The Rosie Project
This weekend has been filled with me being lazy and I wouldn't have it any other way! I've got a lot of hours at work coming up because I'm covering two people's shifts so I wanted to relax before Monday. Yesterday I had 2/3 naps and caught up on my YouTube subscriptions. I painted my nails using Essie's Splash of Grenadine, which is such a gorgeous pink colour. In the evening, I rewatched the second Hunger Games film with my dad. He actually really enjoyed the first one but didn't like this one as much.

Today I had a lie-in whilst reading The Rosie Project. I'm only 5 chapters in but I'm really enjoying it so far. Today's plan is to blog and have a Chinese takeaway later. Bliss!

I hope you've all had a lovely weekend. 

love, Cally


  1. Looks like a great week Cally :) Food is literally one of the things that makes me happiest and Oh my GOD that cake looks incredible! Perfect after work treat. I'm really looking forward to seeing what you bought in Urban Outfitters and hearing about you other meals. And I hope you enjoy the Rosie Project! I loved it and will be reviewing it soon :)
