graze box

Bit of a different post today, I received my first graze box!
I had heard about the scheme a while ago but never got round to ordering a box, that was until I got my hands on a voucher for a free one.

Im sure you all know about the concept of the graze box, if you don't then it is basically a postal subscription of healthy snacks, delivered as often as you like, to wherever you like. 
 set up your profile online, tell graze.com what snacks appeal to you, what you want sent soon and which you never want to receive in your boxes and they'll do the rest for you. 
Each box is nutritionally balanced and should last you around 2-3 days. 

In my first box I received :
a cheddar, red onion and chutney foccia     
 golden honey cashew nuts    
   fig roll: fig & sesame balls, sponge pieces & walnuts    
korean chilli rice crackers

each snack is individually packaged to keep it fresh and is the correct size of a recommended portion,
you also get a handy booklet to tell you the nutritional information so you know what your eating
 graze boxes are £3.49 each but you can get your first box free with this code: HQQ3MW6  whats more you can cancel anytime! 

I will deffinitly be keeping my weekly subscription for a little while, simply as a way to try out new snacks that I wouldn't have tried otherwise, I can always go to a health food shop and purchase larger quantities at a later date to save money!
If anyone has tried graze boxes before, I wanna know what your favs are! I love the chilli crackers and cashew nuts!

black and white.

dress: asos.com    belt: primark    watch: primark men's

I have been buying lots of winter clothes recently which is great for my wardrobe, not so great for my bank balance. I found this chiffon dress in the asos sale and I really love the lace collar detail and long sleeves. It was originally £35 but I paid just £17.50!
The new look shoes are going to be my everyday black shoe as they are so comfy and give me the extra hight I need, being a wedge they are a lot easier to get around on than my topshop allegra's, which have been reserved for short walks and nights out only!

a weekend off....

Cape:  asos.com

This weekend I had the whole weekend off! what a novelty, no uni, no work, no commitments of any sort!
Saturday was spent shopping, although I didn't really buy anything, I was so pleased with the arrival of my duffle cape from asos I didn't really want anything else. So Sam and I pottered about town and then went to Nando's for dinner. 

seeing as I had a voucher, I treated myself to a manicure from nails inc. 
I had the new purple Magnetic polish, which looks like a normal purple polish until you put a magnet over is and duh duh! swishy looking nails. 

Hidden under that enormous cape was:
blazer: H&M    vest: Primark    skirt: american apparel    scarf: primark    shoes: new look    bag: ebay

Today (sunday) has been spent largely stuffing my face. We cooked a lamb roast w/ the best yorkshire puddings I've ever made! (Wish I had taken a piccy, my Ma would be so proud!) Polished off with Haagen-Dazs ice cream, yuuum. Diet starts tomorrow.
I also cant stop listening to Bombay Bicycle clubs new album, a different kind of fix. so good!

If there's one thing I hate about Bristol, It's the wind. Cycling to uni against 25 mph winds today was not fun. lets just say I left the house with lovely straight hair and turned up looking a little less than glamourous. Got loads of work to catch up on tonight, huff :(

scarf: H&M    jacket: Primark    dress: H&M    boots: Primark

so chuffed with these boots I found in Primark for £25! They look and feel expensive and make me feel so tall (amazing feeling when your so short!)
