The Sunday Post: Pub Lunches & Bank Holiday Blues

You may or may not have noticed that I've been absent online recently, all my posts had been scheduled, and that's because I've been curled up with a sick bucket and my duvet. I hate getting ill, I don't get sick very often but when I do I get very sick and it sort of comes along and crashes into my life causing everything else to come to a bit of a stand still. Not fun.

I did get some fresh air the other day and ventured to a local park to grab some lunch and hope that the sunshine could boost my immune system. 

We stopped off at an old pub that was on the grounds for a spot of lunch. I asked for the caesar salad and had more bacon than actual salad, I did my best to devour it all the same.

Since then the weather has been miserable, not exactly the heatwave we was promised and I for one am quite glad about that as I've spent most of my weekend in bed. Fingers crossed the sun makes an appearance tomorrow though...

Here's some of the blogs that have kept me occupied whilst in my sickly state...

Kirsty from Smugpug is an absolute babe, I envy her figure to no end!

Anna from VDM got me all inspired to fish out my running gear and tone up my wobbly thighs. I've been far too lazy lately and I need something to help me get out of this rutt.

Finally, one of those blogs you just can't stop scrolling through - Style Peaches. I find the photography enchanting and really love Peaches sense of style,  think you will too.

What have been your favourite reads recently, blogs or books?

P.s. If you love reading Oh Little Red as much as I enjoy putting it all together then please vote me 'Best New Beauty Blog' in the Cosmo Awards (vote here) - the voting ends on the 30th and it would put the cheesiest grin on my face if you voted :) Thanks to everyone who has done so already!
