week in photos #16





001. Mmm, Lindor chocolate. This week has mainly been spent consuming easter eggs. However the pile of chocolate eggs hasn't went down due the amount of bargain easter eggs that have been stocked up over the past few days. Not good for the diet, but they definitely taste good!

002. I haven't been to the cinema this week (going tonight to see Insidious!) which is surprising for me, but I did watch this film - Oldboy. I won't ruin it for you all, because I do highly recommend you watch it. It's about a man, Daesu, who is kidnapped and imprisioned for 15 years and then suddenly released one day. He has to find his captor, and wants to find out why he was imprisioned. There's a dark twist at the end of the film which still has me in shock!

003. I hit 99,000 miles on my car! It was at 89,000 when I bought him it in December 09 so I've drove quite a bit since then! I also had my first ever crash this week. Luckily I'm okay and there wasn't even a scratch on either of the cars but since then I've been extra careful. You never know when some little old pensioner is going to forget to look left and suddenly pull out on front of you, grrr.

004. It's the first week of the month which means one thing... pay day! I treated myself to some new make up, skincare and clothes this week. I love that Boots has a 3 for 2 on at the moment, but find it so difficult choosing what to buy! I might post about some of my buys later this week because I've been really impressed so far!

005. Happy Birthday to my little sister Shannon! She turned 13 today - where does time go?! It seems like just yesterday she was going to her first ever day at school. We had the family over earlier and tucked into this delicious homemade chocolate cake whilst I painted everyones nails leopard print and polka dots.

006. Something a little more healthier than chocolate cake, Total Greek yoghurts. I've been eating lots of these this week. They have 0% fat and are SO GOOD. They're similar to crunch corners and come in a few different flavours. The honey one is my favourite - it feels like such a treat!

007. I've been doing the 30 Day Shred this week, and haven't missed a day yet. My calves we're killing me earlier this week, but I've improved a lot and I'm feeling much fitter already. Only 23 days left to go! I'll be posting my experience so far over at Where Are My Knees?, so go and follow if you're interesting in hearing more about it!

I hope everyone has had a good week! I'm coming down with the cold so keep your fingers crossed that I manage to fight it off and don't let it ruin my week!

  13. Oh my goddd, on sale Easter products will actually be the death of me! Lindt bunnies (the big ones!) are only £1.50 in Tesco now and I have like 5 of them to get through.
    Not that it will be a struggle of any sort, but y'know.
