Valentines Self Love | Lifestyle

Happy Valentines Day!!

One thing I've always enjoyed about Valentines Day is that it's a celebration of love and for me that's not just the romantic type of love. This year just like every other year is about loving myself, doing the things I want to do for me.

At the beginning of the year I very much promised myself that it would be about making me happy, wearing the things I want to wear, doing the things I want to do. It hasn't been like that at all, instead I've been struggling. Taking care of myself hasn't been a priority, it takes too much energy to present myself for a day at work. 

I'm in a slightly better place now and so today is about loving me, having a super long soak in the bath while reading my book, decorating the upcoming week in my planner, and watching movies with a tub of Ben and Jerry's ice cream.

It's not always on my list of priorities and often gets pushed to one side but I feel so much better when I look after myself.

How are you spending your Valentines Day?

Breakfast at Bill's | Lifestyle

A few weeks ago myself and Beardy took a trip to the Trafford Centre and decided to treat ourselves to breakfast out. Upon the discovery of a Bills Restaurant I insisted that we  pay a visit. I've heard plenty of good things so needed to try it myself.

I ordered the gluten free scrambled egg on toast and can quite honestly say it was a wonderful breakfast. The gluten free bread was the good stuff, very much like the gluten free bread in Marks and Spencers. I wish I'd asked what bread they use 'cause I could happily eat it every day.

Beardy had the full English breakfast with black pudding and he enjoyed it, though he wouldn't have said no to more food on his plate!

If you're ever out for breakfast and near a Bill's restaurant then I recommend paying a visit.

Do you have any recommendations for breakfast places?
