Monday, Blogging, It's Monday What Are You Reading?, IMWAYR, Blog A Book Etc, Fay

One week of nights down and another to go before I get to chill for a couple days in the sun if it sticks around. The garden is a great place to hang out, drink copious amounts of coffee, smell the roses and save money at the same time. Both himself and I are on a mission to save as much money as possible as we are meant to be moving ASAP so every penny counts. Enough of us and on to the week!

From the very beginning I was in love with this book – I am still not finished but I am going steady! Also the name of the main character is Fay – bonus right 🙂

Ladies and Gents I can say with pride that if you do not already know from my instagram pictures I HAVE FINISHED this tome of a read. It was quite honestly one of the best books I have ever read and look forward to another tome some day soon. My review will be up soon – it is going to take a lot to put it together but I will get there eventually.

We headed out the other day to pick up some new bed sheets but on our travels I managed to pick up some bargain beauty treats. The Spotless Blackhead Face Scrub is a bargain of a product that packs a fair punch but as I have only used it for a week I cannot really give it a fair review yet.

I picked up a couple of other bits but will post about all of the products together later this week. Keep your eyes open for Beauty on a Budget later this week.

I am desperately searching for these bad boys last summer they were the most comfortable thing I could find and went just about everywhere in them. If they are not found then I will most definitely be buying a new pair!

Although I am not feeling my best I managed to get out and about in a dress last week at Columbia Road and the weather really was a god send. The first day of the year that I could wear a dress and shades! This dress is one of my favourites of all time – it is from Collectif. Collectif clothes seem to fit me perfectly so when I get the chance I will get more. What are you wearing this week?

We fixed up part of the garden the other day so we now have a little corner to sit outside and chill together in the wonderful that the UK is showering us with.

Just a little thought to leave you with . . .
