Week-end Beauty....

Just sharing some of my favourite images from this week.

Last January I took place in the World's Biggest Juice Detox & this week I've been doing it again....
it's not always easy, I miss my morning coffee & tea but I feel great.

I've also been doing a little blog makeover....it's not quite finished yet, almost there.

I'm going to spend the remainder of my Saturday afternoon cooking....
I'm going to try the rosemary chicken lasagne featured below & am making a couple of other dishes, including Rachel Allen's fantastic lemon rosemary polenta cake.

I went to see "Quartet" this week....
it's a wonderful film, brilliant acting & set in the most beautiful house.

I'm looking forward to the Golden Globes tomorrow night & will be featuring some of my favourites gowns on Monday.

The Oscar nominations made interesting reading this week....
like many others, I though that Ben Affleck was absolutely robbed when he missed out on Best Actor & Best Director for "Argo", one of my favourite movies of 2012 by far.
Snow is forecast in London for Monday and most of next week, it's certainly cold enough for it!

Happy Week-end!!

  1. I had a feeling you might do your juicing challenge again this year as you did SO well last year.
    Lovely images and thank you for the foodie blog recommendation.
    Re-sent my e.mail hope you got it xx

  2. I can"t wait for The Golden Globes! I love drooling over the hair and dresses!

  3. Glad you're enjoying your juice detox! I've started to incorporate a green smoothie into my daily routine and feeling much better for it.
    The home office image looks gorgeous, I'm planning mine for our house move and we're still months away from it!

  4. Beautiful images, and I'm looking forward to the Globes too. At least Ben is getting lots of attention for being snubbed...and rightfully so - he deserved it!

  5. Best of luck with your juicing Simone ~ you are by far more dedicated and have more willpower than I do. That lasagne looks delish ~ I will have to add that recipe to my list for next month. Love that last quote ~ it is oh so true. Happy weekend sweet girl. xo

  6. Hello there! I went to your blog last night as I was thinking about an old post you'd written, so I stumbled across the new look blog! It's lovely - very simple, but keeps the wonderful banner that is so Simone. I get pangs of wanting to revamp but am waiting for the business rebrand to do it all in one.

    I heard snow was forecast but I am not sure if it will materialise. All there is here is WET. Ugh. Love those words about how to live - one to put on my fridge again me thinks! Lou x

  7. Can we detox on the lasagna diet? Wow, that looks delicious.
