What I Ate Wednesday #5

Breakfast: 09.10
So for this Wednesday breakfast I went for something quite light. I've been ill and haven't had the biggest appetite. Instead of my usual cereal or porridge I went for this yoghourt protein drink packed with vitamins and goodness. Cranberry's are very good when you're ill so I picked the one with the most cranberries! It's very filling and I drank it slowly throughout the morning to even out the intake. 

Lunch 12.05: 
Back to bagels! I had time on my hands to make my lunch today so I deiceded to make sometihng very yummy! I melted some red leister cheese on one half of a bagel until it was yummy and runny! On the other half I put a layer of tuna and sweetcorn and created a delicious cheese and tuna bagel!

 Snack 14.30:
So for a snack I ate a hand full of grapes, 6 large strawberries all cut up and five almonds. Again I ate these over a period of an hour I say. My mum and I went to a lovely shop where they cell dried fruits and buts and we picked up some yummy fresh walnuts which are a lot better than the ones you buy in the supermarket!

 Snack 17.45:
Tea! I am in love with Arizona ice tea at the moment I just can't get enough of this drink and ! When I get the chance I warm it up in the microwave so it's just normal tea. my favourite flavour is Original Green Tea with Honey! I had another few glasses today but features the one I heated up!

Dinner 19.30:
Sushi! It looks like I am always eating sushi, but I'm not! Again they were on a special discount so my mum picked one up! This week I had it for dinner though because I still didn't have a huge appetite! The shush was a sleection of salmon, tune and red peppers.

Outfit Of The Day • Wearing my heart on my sleeve

Hey everyone, here's my latest outfit that I wanted to share! I went shopping with my mum and picked up this beautiful jumper with heart elbow pads. It reminded of the saying "wearing my heart on my sleeve" so I thought that was an appropriate name to give to this outfit. I paired this simple black jumper with some skinny blue denim jeggings from New Look. I went for black again when it came to shoes and went for my Chelsea Boots from Topshop. I think they make this casual outfit look very smart great for any mildly smart event I might have. I kept it simple for jewellery with my simple everyday necklace and a simple silver ring.

What I Ate Wednesday #4

Breakfast 08.30:
Again, dorset cereal! We have anew flavour in the house this week "Super High Fibre Muesli"! This is my favourite so far. It has quite a few nuts and seeds which I am a fan of, coconut, and different dried fruits! The other cereal also have dried fruit but I find them a little too sweet, but these are perfect. I was a little cheeky and had a little extra because it was so yummy! All of the almond milk was finished so I had normal milk for today. 
Lunch 12.05:
Sushi! Coincidentally I have Sushi again on a Wednesday! Usually my lunches consist of bagels or another type of bread so I am very lucky to have Sushi twice in a row! This week I had a different selection which was very yummy. Cucumber, tuna, crab and egg. I finished it very quickly because it tasted very good! 

Drink 13.00:
During class I was sipping on this drink for two hours. It actually a breakfast drink and full of fibre, but I didn't realise this until I had finished it! It's very yoghurt more than a juicy drink and it tasted very much of raspberries and not so much of strawberries but it was very tasty.
Snack 14.20:
Strawberries is it. For a snack I had six chopped up strawberries that I prepared in the morning. Nothing too interesting but since they are in the shops again I am happy! They were eaten very fast because it is actually quite hard for me not to eat strawberries slow! Oh well, they are very healthy so that's fine!

Snack 16.00:
For another snack I had another portion of fruit, this time a banana. I don't like banana's so much when they are yellow, I prefer them when they are still a little green so today i was very happy! 

Dinner 19.00:
Curry curry! I love a good curry and today we had something different because it was a little more spicy than usually which I liked. For meat we had chicken and for rice we had white rice. Popadoms on the side is a must when we have curry! I don't usually eat with a knife and fork because I prefer eating it straight of a popadom, traditional and delicious! 

So that's another What I Ate Wednesday which I hope you enjoyed! Come back next wednesday for another! xoxo

Outfit Of The Day • I Love New York

Hello everyone! So today's outfit was thrown together quite quickly, but I'm really happy with how it turned out! Most of my trousers are in the wash and these baggy jeans from H&M were at the top of my jeans pile. I wasn't too sure what to wear them with at first because I didn't want to go for anything too baggy because they are already very loose themselves! I ended up going for my "I ♥ NY" t-shirt I got while on my visit to New York last Christmas. After looking in the mirror I thought the outfit was looking very 90's so I decided to carry on with the theme. I put on my trusty Timberland boots from Timberland and accessorised with my chunky golden eagle chain necklace from Topshop! Easy, funky and great for a casual day at school! 

Please don't forget to hype this look by just simply pressing the "Hype" underneath and stop by again on the monicaaliceeblog for my next post soon! xoxo

Most Worn Shoes • Autumn & Winter

Creepers by Undergound:
The frist pair of shoes that I wore a lot during last Autumn and Winter, were my very trusty Creepers! When I got these shoes in Spring last year, I wore them a lot during Spring, Summer and Autumn. When it came to winter however it got a little too cold to wear them because the ankles are very low and would create a breeze that would give me the chills! I remember when I first wore them, they felt very heavy and new to walk in because they feel very different to normal trainers. I never wear normal socks or jeans when I wear them, because I don't think it works, so I usually wear other types of trousers, skirts, or leggings, with frilly short socks. 

Wedged Creepers by Undergound:
As Creepers have been brought up, another pair of shoes that made their way on to my top list of shoes, where my Wedged Creepers by Underground. I love my flat Creepers enormously, so when they were reduced from £110 to £40 in the Christmas sales, I took the chance! They weren't very practical when it snowed or was slippery, because they are heels, but when the weather was alright, I would try and wear these! The main reason I wore these a lot are because they are the most comfy heels that my feet have ever had to walk in! The rubbery sole and thick surrounding of the shoe keep your feet very comfortable, just like the flat Creepers. They are very unusual looking, so when it comes to styling them I usually make them a big piece in the outfit. I usually go for plane black tights, with a nice skirt or dress. 

Chelsea Boots by Topshop:
When I needed shoes for a smart occasion, I went for this pair of Chelsea Boots from Topshop. I received these as a birthday present from my uncles in October after trying them on in the shop. I thought they looked very sophisticated and they felt very comfortable to walk in, and I figured they would work well for school. I wore them a lot during Autumn, however when the weather started getting very bad, I stopped wearing them because the snow would ruin the material. My favourite part of them is that they remind me a little of horse riding boots, which makes it easy to style them into a casual outfit as well as formal. 

Ankle High Ugg Boots by Ugg:
These Uggs have been in my life for well over two years now and they have never let me down. Whenever I need an easy pair of shoes to put on and are nice are warm, I go for these. Since I have worn them countless times the fur on the inside of the shoe has started to shed a bit, and the soles at the back have worn away ever so slightly. They are also quite dirty because it's hard to keep a white pair of shoes super clean, however I still love them! I find they work well with most outfits whether it was a pair of jeans and a blouse, or a pair of tights and a skirt, because they are plain looking. 

Knee High Ugg Boots (Limited Edition) by Ugg:
These Knee High Ugg Boots are a hand me down from my lovely mum!  She bought them for herself at least five years ago, and recently she had an enough of them and thought it would be nice if I would take them on. The magical thing with Ugg Boots, is no matter how old they are, they never seem to loose their warmth and comfort. Whenever there was a very cold day during the last few months, these were amazing because they would keep your whole bottom part of your legs very warm, so therefore the whole body. When it comes down to styling these boots, I usually wore them with an outfit that consisted of comfy clothes, like jumpers and cardigans, because the shoes looks warm and happy. 

 Dr. Martens by Airwair:
Beautiful. Amazing. I love these shoes. My mum and I hit the Christmas Sales December just gone which was when I laid my eyes on these. I had had my eye on some Dr. Martens for a while, but never had the chance to try them on. At first they were very hard and rough, and were slightly painful around the ankles. The first time I wore them out I got a blister, however over time they have slowly become a lot more flexible and easier to walk in. They are very warm and great shoes for when the weather is bad, because they prevent you from slipping on the ice, keep your feet warm, and jazz up your outfit! These are defiantly one of the best shoes to style with an outfit, because I find my self usually dressing around the shoes instead of the clothes. 

 Timberland Boots by Timberland:
Last but definitely not least, I introduce to you my Timberlands. I got these at the beginning of Winter in 2011, and ever since then they have been very worthy to me. Just like the Docs, these boots are amazing for when the weather is bad. They're workman boots, so they are built to be warm and are waterproof. When the ground is icy, they stop you from slipping, so during out Winter which had many days when the floor was slippery, I would wear these shoes. They are also a big style item, because styling the Timberlands is very fun and can really bring an outfit together!

Below is a video of the shoes with me talking about them, which was very fun to film so be sure to take a look! I hope you enjoyed this blog post and the video, and it would be lovely if you could give  thumbs up and follow as it lets me know people like what I'm doing! I hope you all have a wonderful day! xoxo

What I Ate Wednesday #3

Breakfast 07.20:
On Wednesday's for breakfast I ate a bowl of Dorset Cereal. I'm trying almond milk for a change, instead of Soya milk. I usually have soya milk whenever I have cereal or porridge so this was a change. It didn't taste to different to very low fat dairy milk which isn't very nice by itself, but when mixed with porridge or cereal I don't taste the difference! I added blueberries on top for some extra fruity goodness!

Snack 10.00:
For my first snack of the day I packed myself some green grapes and blueberries. I mixed a generous amount of each because I need a fair bit of fruit to feel fuller. 

Lunch 12.05:
For lunch I had some packed sushi! I love sushi and it fills me so this is a great lunch. My mum brought it for me as a treat so that was very nice! In this packet there were four salmon sushi's and four tuna suhsi. 

Snack 15.10:
For my snack later I treated myself to a yummy berry cupcake from our local bakery. I love the cupcakes they make because the top is very much like apple crumble they way it's crispy, and in the middle is soft. The jam they use is very delicious so I enjoyed that! 

Dinner 19.45:
For dinner I had three slices of four mozzarella and tomato pizza, with extra Cheddar cheese! On the side we had some salad with croutons, little slices of parmesan cheese, and honey mustard dressing. Together it tasted very yummy! We added some cheddar cheese on the top of the pizza because in places it looked like there wasn't enough cheese so we were cheeky and added some more! 

This What I Ate Wednesday was a little late because I've been very busy with school and didn't have time to edit the picture and write up my blog! It's better a little late than never though, so I hope you enjoyed it! xoxo
