Week In Pictures #8

Today I thought I would do a non-beauty post/week in pictures with some things i've been up to recently. My graduation is next Friday which i'm definitely looking forward. Now that i've finished University i've started looking for a job but i've also been enjoying having some free time for the first time in a while. 
Something i've been doing is i've gotten back into cooking. One of my favourite things to make is courgette spaghetti. It's really easy to do and is a great way to replace carbs in a meal. I've been surprised how full it makes me as well. Baking wise it's been all about healthy cookies and 4 ingredient healthy macaroons. Both of these have coconut in them which has been another love of mine. Strawberries are in season at the moment so i've been having the with berries and greek yogurt with chia seeds in the morning. To keep things healthy i've got back into green smoothies, this one was made from lots of spinach, mango, cucumber, banana and a bit of lemon juice, so good.
The Tour De France came through Yorkshire last week which has been a big deal with months of preparation. It came through our local town so we headed down to watch and it was a really fun afternoon, so many people came out so the atmosphere was really good. It's been sunny the past few days so i've enjoyed taking him on walks. Afterwards Rufus is pretty tired as you can see from the top right picture! The other day he was fast asleep, snoring, with is tongue out! I finished reading Gone Girl which I would definitely recommend, I didn't see how it was going to end and was hooked for most of the book. I'm definitely excited for the movie to come out in October. My skin has been a tad spotty so i've gone back to using some old favourites; Clean & Clear Dual Action Moisturiser and Origins Out Of Trouble Mask. Both amazing and have really helped to calm things down.

I've been watching a lot of Catfish The TV Show, some episodes are definitely better than others but it is seriously easy watching when I just want to relax. I've also started season 2 of Hemlock Grove which just came back to Netflix. I loved the first season, everything in season 2 feels bigger and more intense which I love. I'm 3 episodes in and already hooked again.  

So that's what has been going on recently. I've tried to slow down on the spending recently and i've done a good job, i've surprised myself. I've been rediscovering products and using things up which again i'm proud about. Since I haven't made any purchases recently let me know what beauty purchases you've made to make up for it!
