Recipes // Pork with apple salad and rosemary potatoes

Sweet Monday recipes, pork and apple

It's another meat post this week. We tend to cook a variety of both vegetarian, seafood and meat dishes each week. We like to have the view that 'meat's a treat', and to only buy fresh, organic meat. Yes, it's more expensive, but it tastes far better and you feel (semi) good about yourself after buying it. Plus, vegetarian dishes are often inexpensive. Especially if you make large batches of food like chilli or curry. So when you treat yourself to meat, you can afford to splash out a bit!

I was contacted recently by the lovely team at Talented Talkers (who are fast becoming my favourite blogger network!) on behalf of Littlewoods about their new campaign #MumsKnowBest. I thought it was a really interesting piece, as on many occasions over the last 27 years, my Mum has definitely known best!!

With than in mind it got me thinking about all the times growing up, especially in my teenage years, that I wouldn’t listen to my Mum’s opinion. Like the time I got my hair thinned out. She told me I would regret it later in life, and sure enough I wish I had thicker hair now! Or the time she told me I didn’t need to wear fake eyelashes, and fake tan. I was beautiful without it… Now I couldn’t imagine wearing either. What was I thinking?!

You can also win a goody bag worth £100 for you or your Mum on the Littlewoods Facebook page. Simply let them know what's the best advice your Mum has given you. The competition ends on July 2nd, so enter soon :)

Outfit // Topshop Corduroy Button Front Midi

Sweet Monday, Outfit, ootd, Topshop corduroy skirt
Top - Missguided // Skirt - Topshop* // Sandals - boohoo // Watch - Shore Projects*

At the same time of purchasing this ribbed crop top, I also picked up this cord button front midi skirt from Topshop. I went a little camel/mustard crazy. It seems tones of yellow are the new colours to join my otherwise monochrome wardrobe. 

This skirt is the perfect transitional piece from Spring to Summer. With it's midi length, and thick corduroy fabric, it keeps you warm on those sunny but chilly days. Teamed with a crop top and sandals, it can be dressed up or down. I have a feeling I'll be wearing this quite a bit over the coming months. I love a good midi!
