Happy Sunday! 🙂
Is it me or do the weeks just seem to be flying by really quickly at the moment? I saw someone tweet that X Factor is starting next weekend, which pretty much means it’s Christmas really doesn’t it? Crazy! Anyway, we’ve had a great couple of weeks with my brother in law and his family, they came over from Japan and for the last two weeks we’ve been having some lovely days out. Freddy’s really going to miss his cousin now they’ve gone, so I’m trying not to talk too much about them as I don’t want him to get upset.
Hopefully blogging will return to normal this week. Just from having a few days out and evening meals, I’ve found it so much harder to plan my time and fit everything in. I should have a whole load of posts coming up this week with some gorgeous new beauty products and stationery to show you.
Here’s this weeks top five –
from Flamingo Candles. This scent takes me right back to my childhood when I had a phase of having lemon curd sandwiches for breakfast! I just love the sweet smell of this candle, it’s lemony-sweet and yummy and just makes my house smell amazing. Flamingo Candles offer a massive range of scents that are really affordable, so definitely check their site out if you’re a candle fan!
from Ban.do. My amazing stationery order from Ban.do finally arrived (after some rather hefty import fees) and I think I’m in love! I’ll have the full details in a post hopefully later this week, but until then, just marvel at the beauty of my new agenda! Isn’t it pretty!
from ASOS. I had a little ASOS splurge last week and bought myself some much needed new clothes. Half the items didn’t fit – thank God for free returns hey! But out of the few that did, my favourite was easily this really simple but pretty skater dress. It hugs me in the right areas, and skims over those I’d rather cover up. The colour is also much nicer than the picture, it’s more of a muted terracotta-red shade. I’m very happy with this purchase!
from Boots. Considering Nivea is a massively popular brand, I haven’t actually tried many of their products at all. So I was really excited when this brand new eye makeup remove arrived on my doorstep last week. The Daily essentials Double Effective Eye Make-up Remover has a two-phase extra strength formula, including an oil phase to effectively remove even waterproof mascara and eye-make-up, and an aqueous phase to protect and care for the eye lashes, without leaving an oily residue. And it really does work! It takes my eyeliner and waterproof mascara off with minimal rubbing, and leaves my eyes feeling clean, refreshed and happy!
And lastly – I have some gorgeous pieces from Pia that I’ve been wearing this week, including this beautiful Mystic Topaz ring. Keep an eye on the blog later this week for my full post 🙂
In case you missed it –
#Bloggerbalckmail has been the talk of the week on social media, and when I say this week, it was trending on Twitter on Monday, being mentioned on Tuesday, and pretty much forgotten about by Wednesday. In case you somehow missed this and want to catch up with the drama, take a look here for my thoughts.
Other things worth mentioning –
As a blogger, you know when you get a really exciting email and your heart skips a beat? Well I had one of those last week. A very exciting project is on the cards, it’s only in the very beginning stages right now, so watch this space!
I hope you enjoyed my post xxx
