So, I haven’t done one of these for a while now. And I really like doing them.
I also happen to have a terrible memory for little happy happenings throughout the week, so I started writing this on Tuesday, adding bits as I go along. And it seems to have worked! Genius. Here are ten things I’ve loved in the past week…
1 | A productive Monday off
Seriously though, having a Monday off is the best feeling ever. Everyone else is moaning about going back to work/Uni as I scroll through Twitter at 10am still in my PJs. It definitely wasn’t a lazy Monday off though! I managed to clean the flat, get blog posts done AND head to the gym. Check me out, li’l productivity gremlin over here.
2 | Getting back to Slimming World
Alright, so I chucked up a shot of a badass mega burger on Instagram, but I actually ate that last week. This week, I decided to rejoin Slimming World as my weight’s crept up over the past year to a point where I’m not feeling as great about myself. I feel like I have a weight/size I’m comfortable at, which I reached before. And want to reach again. So here’s to Mullerlights and Mugshots, and saving up all my Syns so I can use them on prosecco. *cheers*
3 | Lush bubble bars
I finally got to the end of my massive Christmas Lush stocks a couple of months back (I know. THAT much), and hadn’t actually had the chance (or cash) to fill my bathroom cabinet with more. Boo! But Conor picked me up a Big Bang Bubble Bar and I fell into a citrus heaven in my bathtub. Dreamy.
4 | Matalan bargains
I haven’t actually been clothes shopping in what feels like about ten years. I legit can’t remember the last non-functional item of clothing I bought myself. So on the way home from work, I had a good ol’ splurge in my local Matalan. I picked up a fabulous camo jacket (inspired by the stylish babe that is Hannah Gale), THREE pairs of shoes (it’s cool, one pair are black boots which are basically essentials, yeah?) and a long sleeve, stripy, cold shoulder top. I have a severe cold shoulder thing at the moment which is good cause it’s bloody everywhere. Oh, and some boring workout leggings but y’all don’t care about those. And all of that came to just £90 (using a sneaky student discount…). Yessss.
5 | L.A Weatherly’s Broken Trilogy
Okay, well, alright, she’s only released two books from it so far. But they’re awesome. I won the first book, Broken Sky, in a competition, and basically devoured it as if it was pizza and I hadn’t eaten for a month. The end had such a twist that I just had to pre-order the sequel, Darkness Follows, which I’m currently getting stuck into. Think dystopian premise, badass heroine and great storytelling, and you’re on the right lines.
6 | A meal with a view
On Wednesday, I headed over to Greenwich for a ‘Secret Supper’ with Fuller’s Kitchens. The Sail Loft definitely shouldn’t be a secret as it has incredible views over the Thames, and a great menu. Full post coming very soon!
7 | Catching up with some fave blogging faces (and meeting new ones!)
On Thursday, I popped down to Finch’s Pub in Moorgate to hang out with Traverse and Affilinet, to learn a bit more about affiliate marketing and build some relationships with some pretty awesome brands. Also, to drink plenty of wine, obviously. And to take some silly selfies with props. And hang out with Erin and Luisa and to meet lots of new faces. This is how you do Thursdays…well, at least until 9pm. Because…
8 | The Apprentice
HOLY SHIT THE APPRENTICE IS BACK and I am so happy about this. Seriously, the sassy Sugar weekly hour is probably my favourite run of telly all year. From now on, please don’t invite me places on a Thursday, kthanks. (I still miss Nick Hewer though…)
9 | Moose Blood
I just can’t get enough of this band, seriously. I went along to KOKO on Friday night to catch them play a headline show that sold out months ago. It was meant to be an ‘album tour’ for Blush, but the fact this had sold out long before the album was even out goes to shows how much people are lovin’ on these guys right now. The songs sounded awesome, and I got to see lots of people I like and drink wine to a soundtrack of one of my favourite current bands. Amazing. Even if I did struggle to see over all the tall people in front of me…
10 | Wearing jeans
Despite previous attempts to find the perfect denim, I’ve never been a huge jeans wearer. But George at ASDA have only gone and bloody converted me properly with their Wondershape black skinnies. Just £20 a pop and they’re insanely flattering and comfortable. Perfect for keeping my legs warm all winter!
Hope you’ve all had a wonderful weekend – let me know what you’ve been loving this week!
