week in photos #12






001. You can't beat a box of Hotel Chocolat chocolates. My Grandad always sends us these for birthdays and Christmas and they are so good. So good infact that I've been treasuring this box since Christmas and have only just allowed myself to open it. The Florentine Dream chocolate (front row to the right in the picture) tastes like stuff dreams are made of!

002. Liam got me an Angry Birds piggie plushie and I absolutely love him, look at his little cracked helmet and bruised eyes haha! I'm scarily addicted to Angry Birds (a little pop up in the game kindly informed me I have played it for over 15 hours!) and I'm trying to get 3 stars in every level at the moment because I'm that much of a geek cool.

003. My Mum made homemade caramel shortbread this week and it almost lived up to the amazing one I used to get at school. I think this is to blame for completely ditching the diet this week. Thanks Mum! It was perfect to have with a cup of tea but hopefully she won't make it again any time soon. ;)

004. I'm really loving Nina by Nina Ricci at the moment. It's my favourite perfume and it just smells so lovely. I constantly get compliments when I wear it. It's very fresh and fruity - perfect for Summer!

005. My skin has been awfully dry at the moment from a mixture of forgetting to remove my make up before bed and a skin scrub that was a bit too rough. My friend put a bunch of these face masks into my stocking at Christmas and actually, despite making me look like I'd smeared Nutella over my face, they're quite good! I think I need some sort of moisturising face wash - does anyone have any recommendations?

006. I cleared out my iTunes this week, deleted over 3GB of music and added some new songs. I also went a bit crazy and made a whole range of playlists for different moods/occasions. This one is called 'LAHVEEE IT' and consists of the songs I'm loving just now! I hate to think how long this all took me.

007. I spend the day with my best friend Martina (I know you're reading, hic!) on Tuesday and we watched some of my favourite films. We watched Donnie Darko in the dark and creeped ourselves out something awful when her house started making weird noises. She also finally see's why I find Russell Brand so attractive - YES!

I hope everyone's had a lovely week, it sounds like most of you have been enjoying the sun from what I've seen from Twitter and blog posts. :)

My giveaway ends in just over an hour, at 6pm, tonight. I'll be making a post and picking the winners tomorrow, exciting! Now closed!

  5. Omnom, Hotel Chocolat chocolates are amazing! I love clearing out my iTunes once in a while, it makes me feel nice and organised, even though most of the time, it's just a form of procrastination for me (: xx

  6. It looks like you had the perfect week. I think the only thing that could top it would be all of the things in those photos in one evening :)

    Chelsea - Garden State is one of the best films ever, I love Zach Braff. x

    Lilylovelock - Far too many tasty treats if you ask me, this isn't even half of it haha x

    LilyLipstick - I think most people with iphones/smartphones are addicted to it! It's such a good game. x

    Michelle - Mmm they are so good. I can only ever eat 1 or 2 at a time though because they're so chocolatey. I think you're right with the procrastination - that's exactly what I was doing ;) x

    Samantha - You're right, all these things in one night would be the perfect night in! x

  19. Enid Blyton - They are really nice! Garden State is brilliant, I love when she catches his tear in a little jar, awww! <3 x

    FeeneyFooFoo - I've heard about that before, it's supposed to be good. I think I'll try it out! x

    Kate - Get him to the greek is really funny, Russell Brand just plays himself in it basically. Definitely watch it at somepoint! x

    Helen - I love having a good clear out and then spending days just listening to the whole music library on shuffle. So refreshing! <3 x

    Stundon - My current gym faves are Arcade Fire, The Strokes and if I'm running I'll listen to something more upbeat like Deadmau5 or Magnetic Man! x

    Rachel - They're sooo good, aren't they?! x

    Stefany - Do it! It's so refreshing when you like all the songs on your ipod and don't have to skip through a lot of them :) x

    Tass - Haha yes! I love them! My Mum's not a huge chocolate fan so she doesn't really appreciate hers I don't think hehe x

    Flights of Fancy - They definitely do! A chocolate festival?! Oh god, that sounds amazing! x

    Bibbitybob - They are lovely, but very sickening! x

    Rae - Thank you, I love other peoples weeks in photos too. I'm so nosey! x

  20. This is my ideal post! Love angry birds (I got the pop-up for 15 hours too... I don't know whether to feel proud or ashamed!)- going to keep my eyes open for this plushie!

    On a different note altogether, just wanted to let you know that I'm a huge fan of your layout - I love the neatness and regularity of the photo sizes! I always notice it when I'm on your blog, and I thought i'd let you know!

  29. I love Nina too! Love Etc from Body Shop is quite similar. I have both on the go! x

  30. I love the bottle of the Nina. So pretty! Having a pretty bottle on my table is a big decider on perfumes for me.
    I highly recommend the St Ives face washes. They do a range or regular washes and scrubs for different skin types. My skin always feels awesome when I use them.
