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.
£2 – 75ml
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 . . .

Pardon my french but what a shitty week. Last week really was one of the busiest I have had at work with shortage of staff the NHS really is in a bad way. Thankfully blogging is a way for me to release the tension and just chill. This weekend however was absolutely wonderful as I was able to chill with my best friend, my other half and a great work colleague. How has your week been?
So close, soooo close to the end of this and it is just amazing.
This is the next lovely on my list. Just look at that tasty cover – perfect for a spring read right?! The Cake Shop in the Garden is released on April 23rd – you can pre-order now on Amazon.
I have been looking for a waterfall coat for a while now. The one I really want to get my hands on is the well known Zara Waterfall Coat – it came in both camel and grey and I have to say if I could I would have both. Sadly those being out of stock means I am still on the hunt.
These guys are hanging out somewhere in my room and I just cannot wait to find them in time for summer. Comfortable, airy and just the perfect fit. Have you tried them?
This is one of the products I received in my goody bag from the Bloggers Fashion Week event. When it comes to new skincare I am somewhat dubious about using new products as I have extremely sensitive skin. On my first use as usual I followed the instructions to the letter and have to say I was happy with the results. Of course I cannot yet review the product yet as I have only used it once.
I have been using this daily scrub for some time now and I have to say I LOVE it! The review for it will be up on Wednesday! Keep your eyes peeled.
It seems that I have become some kind of Essie addict. Now I have to say this is one addiction that I am not ready to give up on easily! These two colours are the newest of the collection and one of which that I have been coveting for some time. Mint Candy Apple ladies and gents that’s right. I think the next one will have to be Rock The Boat – it is just the right shade of blue for spring.
I had an insanely great weekend especially the Sunday! You may have seen on Instagram a couple of pictures that I put up. I am not putting up any pictures on this post as I will be posting here and there this week about what I got up to.
What have you been up to?
If i’m honest it’s been a bit of a tough week so whilst I am sitting here on Monday evening finally writing this post after a heck of a busy day I am thinking back on what I have actually read. Not that much altogether which bothers me but otherwise I go quite a bit of commenting done and other stuff! I have really enjoyed being more active on Twitter, Pinterest and even Goodreads – really should do it more often.
I am almost there. Guys I am so close to the end.
I really should start taking this seriously as I need to get through it asap!
Over the past couple of weeks I have been sent some fabulous books but have yet to get around taking photos of them. I may write a book mail post for later in the week. If not keep your eyes peeled for the book stack!
These have been staple items in this weeks beauty regime – over the past month I have been trying to take care of my skin and have had the opportunity to try some amazing products which over the next couple of weeks I will be letting you know how I get on.
I saw these great PJ’s online from Primark and think I may have to make a little trip. As I am trying to save money spending more time at home is something that I will be doing more often than I usually do.
Otherwise on Blog A Book . . .
After getting out of a nice hot bath there is nothing better than slathering on this moisturiser. It is incredibly thick and actually feels like it is keeping my skin smooth. With cold weather it is nice to hydrate the skin and for the moment this is my moisturiser of choice – plus it doesn’t irritate my extremely sensitive skin.
Whilst out walking the dog the other day I noticed that most of the daffodils have now bloomed. I couldn’t resist stopping to take a couple of snaps. I love spring mornings especially when there aren’t that many people around. Nice and chilled.
