Happy Birthday to me : )

Today is my birthday!! Yah. I'm 28 years old....eek...I'm approaching that big birthday!

We are going to Drayton Manor Park for the day and then out to dinner tonight. It's funny as my boyfriend also shares his birthday on the same day (he is one year older though).

I've already received £20, a bunch of flowers, a Lush gift set and a teddy!

I will post some pics later : )

In my absence of blogging I have gotten my 2nd tattoo. I have been thinking about it for a while (my first one is three stars on my back which I got 5 years ago). I knew I wanted something on the inside of my wrist. When we were in Las Vegas in April I considered having something done then (the tattoo shop is half owned by Chester Bennington from Linkin Park and I thought it would have been amazing to say I had it done there!). I did look through all the designs but didn't see anything I liked. I then spotted a tattoo on here and decided I wanted what she had. So on the 18th July off I went to Abody in Leicester to get it done. £50 and 30 mins later this is what I got...

I am going through a phase at the moment and feel the need for a change. The best things I find that help are nail varnish and hair dye. Here are the results.

I promise the only other change I will get will be new clothes, no more tattoos for at least a couple of years! Does anyone else have moments where they feel they need a change???

Loving summer and its food

Summer is in full swing but unfortunately the weather doesn't seem to know it! I can't complain because we have had some lovely warm days and the forecast for the next couple of weeks is looking better. I love how food changes throughout the seasons. Here are some of the things I have been eating:

Raspberry Muffins

Mushroom Risotto

Tofutti Cornetto

Alpro Strawberry Milkshake and mini Chocolate Vegan Muffin

Vegan Beef with Rice Noodles, Peas and Broad Beans

It's my birthday on Thursday so I need to make some cakes to take into work. Luckily I have the day off and we are planning on going to the seaside. I'm not sure what cakes to make, I'm thinking of maybe apple muffins and chocolate cupcakes? Any other suggestions...??

Lots of food but not alot else

I have been eating some really good food lately. Here is some of it:

Tofutti Ice Cream Lolly

Cold pasta salad from Sainsbury's with tofu salad toppers mixed in

Vegetable spring rolls and a stir fry made with noodles, mushrooms, carrots, green beans, soy sauce and tofu

Sausages made using an Asda packet mix, peas, broccoli and creamy pasta made with mushrooms, soya cream and Tofutti cream cheese

Bean burger with broccoli, green beans and Morrisons salad bar salad

Pasta mixed with tomato sauce, mushrooms and mixed beans with a side of garlic bread

My first attempt at a Tofu omlette from Vegan Brunch. I added mushrooms and spinach. It turned more into scrambled egg as the omlette was too soft. I served it with baked bean and potato wedges. It was yummy.

Apple Pie Larabar - I didn't really like this : (

Fry's sausages in buns with onions, salad, mustard and ketchup

Fry's Chocolate Cream bar

Bran flakes with strawberries and blueberries served with Alpro soya milk

Pecan clusters with blueberries served with Alpro soya milk with 3 small slices of bread topped with homemade plum jam

Booja Booja Hunky Punky Chocolate Ice Cream - this was well worth the £5.99 I paid for it
