We all have those days where we don't want to get up and those days for me are Sundays. 
A Sunday has always been my favourite day (other than when I worked in retail, more about that HERE!!) Today I decided to do my emails from bed, watch youtube videos from bed, and yep, eat my breakfast in bed, ultimate filth I know, but you know what, fuck it!! I decided to make my trusty banana Pancakes and with Pancake day right around the corner, what better time to share this gluten free, low calorie recipe.

: YOU WILL NEED :
. 1 Ripe Banana
. 2 Eggs
. 1/8 TSP Baking Powder

:HOW TO:
1. Crack eggs into a bowl, add the baking powder and whisk together making sure all the baking powder has dissolved.

2. In a separate bowl mash the Banana, leave slightly lumpy so some texture remains in the pancakes, add egg mixture to Banana and combine.

3. Melt a small amount of butter in a frying pan and start adding your mixture, cook until baking powder has activated and the one side is brown then flip and cook on the other side, (I usually get about 4-5 Pancakes out of this mix) top with maple syrup and your choice of fruit.

Make yourself a brew and climb back in to bed, take some time out for yourself and don't feel guilty about being a slob.

WEEKEND LINKS

weekly links, katelouiseblog, trending this week, websites you need to check out,

This week has been a whirlwind of emotions, has anyone else been hit by a bout of the winter blues? Gimmie Spring already!!! However, my miserableness aside I thought I'd start a new series on my blog, a collection of my weekly finds and current loves compiled together, check them out below...

1 - Quite an exciting thing happened in my life this week? (Don't panic, i'm not up the duff) but I have a different kind of baby....That being my own business, I have officially launched my Luxury Dog shop called Bones, you can check it out here.

2 - My Youtube channel has undergone a revamp, some of you may not realise that I make videos, head over to my channel, I'd love it if you subscribed.

3 - I am currently lusting after this and these.

4 - I may be late on the bandwagon but i've just discovered Real Estate and cannot get enough of their music, especially this.

5 - I've added some new trainers to my wardrobe, if you saw a few posts back I couldn't decide which ones to go for, I ended up with these and couldn't be happier.

6 - If you need a new blogger/youtuber to follow, check out ThereSheGoes, i'm obsessed with her videos!!

7 - I've really fallen back in love with thrifting again, I'm trying to get more basics back into my wardrobe this month, see what I bought here

8 - The tastiest, quickest recipe you will try this week and it's carb free!!! 

I hope you have all had an awesome week, let me know what you've been doing, lets chat, I don't bite!!

VALENTINE'S

That dreaded time of the year is fast approaching, for some of us it's all lovey dovey and for others it's a night at home in our pj's with a pizza, crying into a sodden tissue, okay a bit dramatic but this was actually my life before I got into my long term relationship of three years (can you actually believe anyone has put up with me for this long?) Valentine's day certainly has it's mixed opinions, "oh it's all to make money" , "why can't you show someone you love them everyday?" both valid points but i'm afraid to tell you moaners that it is what it is and you will never put a stop to it!

These feelings aside, my inner soppiness actually doesn't mind Valentine's day, okay it can get a bit stale if you been together ages but that doesn't mean you cant make the effort right? This year I will be dolling myself up and heading out for a meal at Simpsons with Paul and a couple of friends (no we aren't swingers, and yes it will be just the two of us on the actual day) I will be donning my best outfit and a few of my favourite makeup items from The Body Shop.

Always craving that full, lengthy lash look? This product certainly lives up to its name, with its super dense bristle brush and sturdy wand it allows you to achieve this look in no time!

If you own any of these lip products you will know what i'm on about, if not I suggest you get yourself to The Body Shop NOW and pick some up, the coverage is amazing, they glide onto your lips beautifully and leave you lips truly kissable, perfect for Valentine's day!!

THE ONLY TRAINERS YOUR WILL EVER NEED

the 6 trainers you need in your life, comfiest trainers, the comfiest trainers, the only trainers you will ever need, nike trainers, vans,vans trainers,katelouiseblog,adidas trainers, stella mccartney,
1,2,3,4,5,6

I think you all know by now that I am indeed a massive trainer whore, a day doesn't go by where I haven't got a pair stuck to my feet and nine times out of ten I wear them into the ground, with that being said my current pairs are all battered and thread bare and quite honestly, as comfy as they are I think I need to treat myself to a couple of (maybe all of these) new pairs, these are a few styles i've been eyeing up recently and am dying to get my hands/feet on/in.
I am also in love with the selection of trainers Ralph Lauren has to offer at the moment, perfect for spring and they would be a dream to style, better get saving my pennies!!

Which ones would you choose? Have you got any of these and the most important question, are they comfy?
