It’s that time of week again where I go through five things which I’ve been loving this week. This week has actually flown by, it’s gone super quick for me, but that’s not a bad thing as it means the weekend comes around sooner! I’m off to a bonfire and fireworks on Sunday night (I didn’t get up to much on the proper Bonfire Night), which I’m really looking forward to – there’s free food – and hopefully I’ll get some nice pictures too. I’m…Continue Reading “Five Favourites: 7th November 2015”

Welcome back to my weekly favourites! I’ve had a pretty stressful week, what with starting a new job and having to get my car fixed, so there haven’t been too many enjoyable things this week. But I’ve cobbled a few together here for you, so enjoy! 1.This black and gold smoky eye I had a bit of an experimental day with make up earlier this week, and came out with this smoky eye, with gold across the lid and black smoked out in the outer…Continue Reading “Five Favourites: 27th September 2015”

I can’t believe it’s already September! Not only does summer seem to have resolutely departed, but I might actually have to start getting my life together now that I’ve officially graduated and left academic life, *sob*. Nothing massively to look forward to in the coming month then! But there’s always the little things to be happy about, so here are five of those that I’ve been particularly loving this week 🙂 1.The Happiness Project This is a book by Gretchen Rubin, which I think I’ve…Continue Reading “Five Favourites: 6th September 2015”

So when I first started doing this blog, I did a bit of a weekly favourites post, and it’s something I really want to get back into. This idea is pretty much stolen from the lovely Hannah Gale (at, who does a Friday Favourites, although I’m going to keep my favourites to just five a week, so that I actually have a chance of sticking to this! I’ll be aiming to do these posts at weekends, without committing to the same day each week,…Continue Reading “Five Favourites: 29th August 2015”

Firstly, my apologies for this post getting later and later each week! Will try to get it done at the start of every week. Secondly, I’ve just been shopping today (again, I know), but I’ll save everything from today’s haul for next week, or a separate post, because I’ve already got this one sorted. Thirdly, please note that I am now at home for an extended period of 3 weeks (shock horror), meaning that I will be doing even less than I was before (if…Continue Reading “My 5 Favourite Things This Week”

This might end up being a rather insubstantial post, but I’m currently sat here watching the England game and I just have to do something – unfortunately watching football isn’t something that massively interests me! So I thought I’d do a bit of a catch up of what I’ve been doing lately, and what to expect in the next few weeks. My last post was a recipe, which is a new one for me – I’m not exactly a good experimenter when it comes to…Continue Reading “Catching Up”

1. Prosciutto – New-found love for this stuff! It tastes better than ham, it’s healthier than bacon, and it’s amazing on a bagel! What’s not to love?  2. Topshop edits – If you check out my latest post from earlier today, you’ll see I dedicated it to these inspirational gems which Topshop sends out in emails every so often. Whether it’s an updated work wardrobe that you’re looking for, or trying out the sports luxe look, or even just finding a kick-ass outfit for a night…Continue Reading “My 5 Favourite Things This Week”

1. The new Bridget Jones book, Mad About The Boy… I LOVE it! It occurred to me that I’d only ever read the first Bridget Jones book years ago, and I’d never read the sequel, so I tried to read the first two books in preparation for this latest one. Unfortunately, I got a bit stuck halfway through Edge of Reason, but I decided in the end to go ahead and read Mad About The Boy anyway (mainly because I’d already bought the book). But…Continue Reading “My 5 Favourite Things This Week”

1. Pasta and Meatballs – that me and Matt actually made ourselves! I know, massive achievement, but I think I’ve mentioned that I’m not exactly a master chef. Or really any kind of chef at all. And it actually tasted like it should! 2. The Lego Movie. It’s AWESOME. Ha. You’ll get that if you’ve seen it. If you haven’t, I’d highly recommend it, even if it is an animated film. Really funny, great animation and with just the right amount of a real relatable situation…Continue Reading “My 5 Favourite Things This Week”
