Last Weekend I...

(pics from my Instagram feed)

... Ate my weight in sushi. On Friday I went for dinner with a friend at Bento Boss on Whiteladies Road. We were being incredibly indecisive so ordered three bento boxes between the two of us! It was way more than we needed but everything was so delicious we made a pretty good job of polishing it off and left feeling very full.

...Got on with some Christmas shopping. On Saturday we went up to Clifton Village, it's not somewhere I visit often but there's something fun about going somewhere you're not too familiar with to buy gifts. In amongst the 'posh lady shops' (as Will calls them) there's some interesting and quirky stores, my favourites were mainly in and around the Clifton Arcade:

Soma - full of gorgeous prints, art, ceramics and jewellery.
Dustbowl Vintage (pic bottom centre)- Specialising in mid-century menswear, it's so lovely to come across a vintage shop that takes so much care in curating their collection. The lady working there was rather rude to us when we bought something but her shop is pretty special so I may just forgive her! 
Otomi (pic bottom left) - a specialist Mexican shop. We got over excited and are now fully stocked up on all sorts of chillies... chipotle, ancho, pasilla, arbol - well you've gotta treat yourself a little too right?!
Papersmiths (main pic & bottom right) - A place of dreams (don't tell me you don't dream of stationary too!) Stocking every indie mag I follow on Instagram and full of beautiful paper goods, coffee table books and the most stunning piece of succulent living art!

...Had an impromptu Saturday evening out with a couple of friends, a couple of drinks and Thai food. 

...Cooked a lovely roast dinner of duck legs with spiced plums, roast new potatoes, carrots and chicory.

...Watched Despicable Me 2 while drinking Baileys. Sunday afternoons in winter were made for this!

As we'd been away the previous two weekends - Devon & London - it was lovely to be in Bristol. Ignoring that I probably definitely spent too much money it was a near perfect weekend full of food and friends and some quality time with that fiancĂ© of mine. (and I didn't even tell you about the fish and chips I had for lunch on Saturday - oh my gad!)
