week in photos #21/22






001. We all look ridiculous (what's with the thumbs up?!) but I love these photos that were taken on Wednesday when I was out with Mark and Paul. It had been a while since we last met up for some banter so we decided to head out for lunch and a bit of people spotting. It was great seeing them and we're going to be planning a roadtrip soon! Just as soon as we figure out where to go... Ideas?!

002. I went to Pivo Pivo in Glasgow to see my friend Caitlin's boyfriend's band play the other night. They were great and I had a really good night! I haven't been to local band gigs in years and it brought back memories of being 15/16 and a bit of a groupie! My ears were buzzing the next day though from the noise!

003. Liam and I visited a new garden centre that has just opened up (what a rock and roll lifestyle I lead!) and spent far too long looking at the tropical fish section. I want a Nemo! It has a nice farm shop full of mouth watering cakes and fancy beers and ciders which we spent ages browsing. I don't think we actually ventured into the plant area!

004. My skin has gone a bit crazy lately. A year ago I didn't have to pay my skin any attention and it was flawless, yet now it seems that if I skip moisturising for one day I have the driest skin in the world. I'm trying to find a skincare routine that works for me and these Lush products seem to be doing the trick so far!

005. I went to see the new X-Men film at the start of the month. I didn't think it would be the kind of thing I'd be into so I'd never seen any of the X-Men films before but it surprised me and I loved it! Since then I've been watching the rest of the films and really enjoying them. I think I've fallen in love with Wolverine too!

006-007. It's been a great week at work for me! Not only did I win this trophy and bottle of wine for having the 'best overall performance' but I was greeted by a surprise email from Samsung telling me that I'd won 2 VIP tickets to see Take That in concert!! I have no idea how I won, but I'm so excited! I'm not even a Take That fan and can't even name one of their songs but there's a champagne reception, 3 course meal with fine wine and VIP after party which sounds appealing! I wonder if I'll spot any celebs? Or if I'll actually meet Take That?

  7. Firstly, I want to say, I love your blog! Love the photos!

    And yes, Lush is great. Love their products, especially their "Turkish Delight". Soft, sweet smell and a nice silky finish to kind of keep the moisture in.

    Cheers,
