Photos of the Week #14

April 7, 2014

WEEK 14 OF 52


Last week began with Press Day at Sussex County Cricket Club. I was mainly taking photographs for a few social media accounts, and a few behind the scenes shots.//A doughnut the size of my HEAD! One of the treats I snapped up at VegFest the weekend before.


Breakfast; vanilla soya yogurt topped with fresh blackberries, a sprinkling of granola and a blob of peanut butter. Best way to start the day!//We went up to London to see Tokyo Police Club play at Scala last week. They were pretty good – not really my kind of thing but Trout loved them, and it was a great way to begin his birthday celebrations.


I took my man out for a birthday lunch at VBites. It was so nice to have a lunchtime date – we are lucky enough to work on the same street so can quite often walk to Pret together or the local wrap cafe and get a takeaway before heading back to the office, so it was nice to sit down and eat together. Trout had the fish finger stack and I had the RLT. We also picked up a cupcake each to enjoy back at our desks.//Saturday morning began with my first ever trip to the gym. I summoned as much pink as I could to inspire me, but it was pretty hard work!! I’ll be writing more about this later on.


Sunday was a lovely, relaxing day. I met a friend for coffee, and then we headed to Iydea for lunch. I haven’t been here for so long, I’d almost forgotten how good their food is.//In the afternoon I made some BBQ pulled ‘pork’ (jackfruit) and coleslaw to rest ahead of dinner, and got on with some white chocolate chip cookies. I used a recipe from Ms Cupcake, and it’s the best cookie recipe I’ve ever used. They are chewy and crunchy and gooey all at the same time.

So that’s what I got up to last week! How was your week? Do you go to the gym? Please tell me it gets easier!

    Wow, that doughnut is actually kinda terrifying, like it might get up at night when you’re asleep and lead a secret life of its own. Would love to give you some gym tips if you’re interested! Drop me an email or something and we can chat :) I’m all about helping fellow vegans get fit and strong to dispel the “weak skinny pale vegan” stereotype x

      Haha! Not if I eat it first ;)

      That would be amazing! I’ll drop you an email at the weekend and badger you for advice on how to stay motivated when I think I’m going to pass out…

    There is nothing more inspiring than pink workout gear. Hope you felt motivated!

    Wow, that doughnut is huge!! I’d be scared it would try to eat me ha! Looks like a fun week. I worked at a gym for years, but never actually got into working out at a gym. I guess I was there more for the social experience! I’m super active outdoors though and do yoga almost daily. Before we moved, we had a treadmill which I must say I really miss! There’s something about pumping some good music and going for it!

      I was so disorientated on the treadmill! I think I’m definitely designed more for the classes and cycling than the running.
