I don’t tend to join in with linkies, purely because I always seem to forget but I really, really love Morgana’s blog Coffee, Work, Sleep, Repeat and her friday link up so I made notes and reminders to ensure I didn’t forget this one.
It’s been a bit of a shit week really, world wise. And it’s generally times like these that you appreciate the things you have in your life so the #LittleLoves tag is perfect.
I have 3 bookshelves in my living room, all full of books (obviously) and a whole pile of magazines to catch up on, but this week I have mostly been reading blogs. I’ve launched a new site with a couple of other bloggers and so I’ve really been getting lost in the world of websites. I have a few faves that I head to every day without fail, like Noah and the Girls, Hannah Gale and Modern Mummy but I love finding new ones to read, ones that just ‘click’ with me, ya know?
Ohmygod! Sons of Anarchy. I know this series is like, 6 years old or more? But this week we *finally* got round to watching the very last episode. Jax died, Gemma got caught, Bobby was killed, all the baddies got their payback, bloody LOVE SOA.
Now my evenings are free for Love Island (don’t judge) and OITNB.
Um. Dinner? A mess? I’m going to have to work on this area of #LittleLoves. I did make a decision, which kind of counts doesn’t it? I’ve been beating myself up trying to find a job that fits in with the family, won’t take me away from the kids 5 days a week and won’t cost more than I earn in childcare but there is nothing out there at the moment. So, I’ve decided to take the summer off, spend it with my babies and start again in September. And breathe……
I’m a natural redhead which means I have pure white lashes and brows. I tint my brows at home once a month, but tinting my lashes is a bit harder, A; you need to lay down really while they develop and it’s quite hard to do that yourself (not lay down, I can do that bit well easy), B; I have to leave it on for a LOT longer than the packets suggest and C; it just doesn’t last long enough for it to really be worth it. It also costs quite a lot to get it done every month. So, when I saw Rimmel had a mascara that tints your lashes while you wear it, I was all over it! I’ve only been using it a week, so I haven’t really noticed any different yet, but fingers crossed!
Also, in the face theme, I’ve been smothering myself in Superfacialist Rose Face Oil from Boots, in the hope that it will help with the ridiculous breakout I had, and it has, almost overnight the redness reduced and now they’re almost gone, try it!
Couldn’t be anything other than Adele at Glastonbury. I love that woman. I swear, if we were in the same room we would be best mates in seconds. She swears as much as I do, has amazing nails and I just love her. Serious girl crush.
Check out my new project, www.the-take.co.uk – A no BS take on everything life. I’ve teamed up with Aimee Horton and Charlotte Nash and we are proper proud of our work so far! It’s gone live today, so grab a cuppa and have a read!
