A cute old man told me I looked pretty and that he loved my autumn dress and I’m made up about it 🌈 This morning I popped to Colombia road flower market and scooped up some treasures for the house, then I got home and uploaded my new YT video which i shot with the LLL founders - it was a supermarket sweep challenge, - who could get the most high protein snacks for under £10 ?!?!?! (go check it out, it’s a goodie 💒💫🥊💥🍭)... NOW Ryan’s driving me somewhere outside London as a treat for working like a dog.
