week in photos #55






Today is the day I finally got my new Fiat 500, Fi-Fi, and it felt like all my Christmases came at once! I already love it so much, especially the little quirks it has such as voice commands, storing my phonebook and making phone calls, lights that automatically come on and her gorgeous red interior. I can't help but smile every time I walk out of the house/shops and see her! The photos don't do it justice either. I'm so happy! Even if a bird has already left it's mark on it, grrr...

I haven't done else this week apart from make delicious (and healthy!) bannoffee layer desserts, change my skincare routine, spend too much money on clothes and jewellery, and work work work and more work.

  1. I am so so jealous of you! So gorgeous! Bit sad but I designed my dream Fiat 500 on the website the other day - just wish I had the money, haha.

    The bannoffee dessert also looks gorgeous! Any chance you could post a recipe? :)

  12. Absolutely love your blog. Just starting reading a few weeks ago. It's nice that everything is available in the UK! And p.s. I love Fiat 500s! But Daihatsu Figaros are just as cute!

    I can never wait for your next post. I might invest in some of that tea tree cleanser as my boots one isn't very strong!

    Carry on the good blogging xx

    1. Aww, thank you! That's so kind of you to say. I love the Figaros too, they look like classic cars but they're not. Lovely! The tea tree cleanser isn't too strong either, but it's good for me as tea tree can dry my skin out even more. It seems to be clearing up my skin though but I've only been using it for a week! x

  13. Oh Charlene! This is my perfect car too, it's so purdy! I'm still driving my little old Fiat Punto (with all it's dents and scratches and it's old age, sob!) but this one is definitely going to be my next... for me it'll be baby blue with cream leather interior, mmm!

    That pud looks lush aswell!

    1. I edit them in photoshop, just by editing curves, adding coloured layers over the image and setting different transparencies and overlays. :) x
