Happy Sunday dolls! Hope you all had a lovely weekend. Myself and John had such a relaxing one eating rings around us (if you follow me on Snapchat, you will have seen!).
We headed out for Tapas on Friday night to Salamanca in town to celebrate my app launch :) It's definitely one of my favourite tapas restaurants in Dublin. Saturday morning was spent over brunch at Balfes in The Westbury hotel. They kindly invited us in to try out the menu which was such a treat! We spent hours chatting over bellini's. The perfect Saturday! Last night my brother and his girlfriend spent the night at our apartment to celebrate his 29th birthday. We ordered Chinese food, ate birthday cake and popped some champagne. Such a cosy night :)
This morning was spent at the Botanic gardens for a nice Sunday stroll before heading to Skerries for dinner at Blue Bar. A foodie filled weekend for sure! It was bliss :) I'm going to start blogging more about my favourite food spots around Dublin because I always get a lot of questions from you guys looking for recommendations etc. so keep posted.
I have a gym class booked in for tomorrow morning which I'm actually looking forward to, haha! But for now, it's time for a movie on the couch and last night's birthday cake. YAY!
Happy Thursday. I hope you're all having a great week so far.
I've been doing lots of celebrating since the launch of my app on Tuesday night :) Thank you all SO much, from the bottom of my heart, for downloading it and for all your wonderful comments. It honestly means the world to me!
Anyway, as much as I have been enjoying the treats, I was very excited to take part in the Primark, Set, Go campaign today. I definitely needed a serious sweat session and that it was!
Our day started at 9am this morning with a delicious breakfast at Primark HQ. Afterward, we curled up on some comfy bean bags with a coffee in hand to listen to a fantastic wellness talk given by the one and only Coach John Kavanagh, (most of us know him as the trainer of super successful Conor McGregor). He was such a lovely guy and it was great to get a little insight into his life and hear how it all began, from the opening of his first gym to travelling the world with his now Pro fighters.
Come 11am, it was time for the tough stuff. The FitVision trainers put us through our paces with a 40 minute HIT class of cardio and boxercise, which I adored! There are very few exercises, I must admit, that I actually enjoy doing but this was so much fun. The workout flew by! After showering, changing into more cute Primark gear and a dozen photos later, it was time for a foodie talk with fellow blogger Indy from 'The Little Green Spoon'. She shared some of her super easy recipes for making delicious healthy snacks which we will all definitely be trying out at home.
Safe to say after such an active and motivating day, I am beat! I was so delighted to be part of this campaign and I can't wait for our next date already! Check out my Snapchat, (laurenarthurs), for all the action from today.
Night gals. I will be sleeping well tonight.
