With another week on the horizon and plenty to do this meme is the perfect way to say goodbye to weeks gone by and start afresh. This great meme is hosted by Sheila over at Book Journey and is a way for bloggers from all corners of the internet to link up and see what has been happening it other peoples world. Have you tried it yet? You really should.
I am still listening to this audio and loving it. The story is progressing at a glacial pace but from past experience with Moriarty’s books I am sure it will pick up soon. Or at least I hope it will!
My happiness could not be expressed when I got this through the door – I have started it and as suspected I am LOVING it!
Cocktails at Fontaine’s in Stoke Newington with Catherine & the men in our life.
It was the start of a great evening.
Breakfast after a block of night shifts is always necessary and Harrison’s in Balham really fit the bill.
This is one of my favourite make up brushes, it picks up just the right amount of powder without being too heavy on the face. Worth the money and when washed does not lose consistency.
This product is great for a quick fix between regular skin care routines or if you have more time leaving it on a little longer gives stunning results.
What do you have planned for the week ahead?
There are days that when going out for a coffee and a spot of shopping you don’t want to get all trussed up with literally nowhere to go. With the weather the way it is and looking to stay chilly this outfit is perfect to keep you warm and looking good at the same time.
Favourite Item of the Bunch
Not only do I LOVE Mulberry in general this bag is one that I am coveting as not only is it beautiful but it is big enough to fit all that a woman needs for her regular day.
What is your favourite?
My, my, my what a week it has been. Having just returned from one of the most romantic weekends of my life I am sorry to say that life has to resume to normal proceedings. With a week of night shifts looming I am sure that I will have plenty of time to listen to a couple of books I have in the pipeline.
After quite some time I have finally picked this book up. Despite not liking the look of the actual author and some of her comments I really do want to give it a go.
This one made it to the pile too as it was on offer and the next one on from Wolf Hall so why not!
This scrub has been a godsend over the past week – I will post a review to let you know how I got on with it.
If you didn’t know from yesterday’s post and a couple more himself booked a trip away for Valentine’s day and truly blew me away. Check out some of the photos HERE.
Happy Monday peeps!
For that night out with the man in your life to celebrate your love for each other. Not that there should only be one day of the year that we celebrate romance, love and all of the lovely stuff that happens on this one day.
This is also the point where I do not like to spoil the day for those like me that are closet saps.
I am currently away with himself on a surprise getaway that he has planned so all will be revealed when we return!
Happy Valentine’s Day lovelies!
When it is cold outside and you want to put something on to get to and from work, grab a quick coffee or just something from your local corner shop this is the sort of outfit that will keep you warm and comfortable but not look like an absolute disaster.
What do you wear when you want to stay warm and fashionable?
It is that time of year that most have made New Years resolutions where we want to get fit and push through that stomach churning winter workout, finish a long list of things that we had listed in the year just gone and plague ourselves with negative thoughts that may seem like we are setting ourselves up for instant failure. Working out it something that I love to do but as the days go by with work getting in the way more and more and actually having a life also creep up on me my exercise routine falls by the wayside.
This set of gear is just gorgeous and there is nothing better than new exercise stuff to get you in the mood for a good session. What gets you into the mood to get fit?
There are some days that even after a night shift I feel so invigorated that I get ready to go for a run then by the time I am ready to leave all I want to do is sleep. Now that is fair enough after a night of staying awake but I really do need to get around it.
The one thing I have promised myself this year is that I will not be stressing myself out over ‘being thinner’ but I will be working on keeping myself happy. Sounds a bit familiar doesn’t it! All about me?! No, not as far as that but I hope you get the gist.
As I haven’t blogged for almost a week (a nice refreshing break!) I thought it would be a good idea to start back at the beginning of the week. Why not right?! Also there have been quite a few changes on the blog. Finally taking the self hosted leap has given me so much freedom with my blog and reason to change even more than I already have. The changes that I am planning are quite exciting (for me anyway!).
How is your New Year going so far? Fast, like mine?!
This is one that I have been putting off for a while but after listening to it for a while (thanks to Audible) it is not that bad. After the first two chapters Moriarty’s writing style returns and you know that you are in for the long haul. Once again I am going between reading and listening.
With Christmas well and truly behind me I headed out to pick up a few bits to prepare for the next one. This may sound ridiculously organised but I think it is just sensible as I pay bargain price for premium products (gift wrapping etc) and don’t have to go on a mad rush at the end of the year and spunk a wad of cash for no reason. Whilst bargain hunting I picked up a few toiletries and decided to treat myself to this little gift set. With a couple of items that I was going to buy anyway it was a true bargain and a little treat. Have you treated yourself in the sales yet?
Isn’t it just lovely when you get to take the dog out and even though it is freezing outside it feels incredibly fresh with the ground crunching beneath your boots and you can forget about not feeling your fingers and toes?! No!
Well if dog walking is not your thing how about New Year’s cocktails with a girl friend followed by a late breakfast at one of our favourite haunts! M1lk in Balham is just lovely and if you are close by you really should drop in.
What have you been up to over the past week?
With 2015 fastly approaching the time has come to make the decision of what to wear. Have you chosen what you will be wearing to see the New Year in?
Although I will be working on New Years Eve and New Years Day I will be seeing the New Year in with my family and watching Jules Holland’s Hootenanny. What are your plans?
