Well, it looks like the winter weather is showing no signs of slowing down just yet. So it has got me thinking about ways to stay warm and cosy, but not have to look like a bundled up marshmallow at the same time!
I tell you one of the best things about having your own house, decorating for Christmas! Now I have always been a big fan of Christmas, one of those people who’s festivities start as soon as Halloween is over, but that feeling has multiplied tenfold now I get to decorate my own home.
Sorry, I’ve been a little MIA on the blogging front, but I have had the most stressful and exciting few months of my life. Basically, me and Matt bought our first house together, after a year and a half of searching for our perfect place, I am now sitting in my own front room, watching Scream Queens (recommended by the way!) and writing this blog post!
I never thought my skin was bad, sure, I get the occasional face demon, but in general I really try to look after my skin. I always take my make up off, I moisturise and use toner, but yet my skin was still a little lack lustre. Maybe that’s what being in your 20’s and working full time does to you, you lose your glow. So I was on a mission to get it back, and with the help of the lovelies at Skinade I was pleasantly surprised with the results.
As I’ve mentioned in my previous cooking post, I’m big on saving time, but love having a home cooked meal that I can quickly prepare without much thought after I’ve finished work. Enter my quick and easy lamb korma, that you can practically do with your eyes closed… which is normally the case after a full working day.
I’ve been meaning to write this post for, oh, I don’t know, 2 months now… Yeah bad planning on my part but I’ve finally got round to showing you what I bought when I went to Florida. I had specific sights set in my mind, I was heading to Bath and Body works for their Semi-Annual Sale, and despite what Matt says, I could and would squeeze 10 candles into my suitcase, and his negativity could be checked in at baggage!
Now I love getting dressed up and going out for a fancy meal as much as the next girl, but sometimes when you finish work you just want a no frills meal that’s not going to take hours to make – enter my go to, no fuss bacon cheeseburger that’s ready in under half an hour, perfect for those lazy days.
Unfortunately, my day didn’t start off quite how I had planned, after having the previous day off for my birthday, I had completely forgot that London was about to go into meltdown as all of the tubes had ground to a stop. Cue a sad me, trying to navigate to work with street signs and a little bit of hope (I still don’t know how I did it!), finishing work and taking a £50 cab from Liverpool Street to Holborn, but finally arriving- albeit a tiny bit late – to the Shaftsbury Theatre to finally see Memphis the Musical!
Put your Mickey ears on guys, I’m back and here with a Disney post! If you haven’t kept up with my Instagram, then you may not know that for the past few weeks I’ve been relaxing in Florida. It was absolutely incredible, and truth be told I’m a little gutted to be home, but I do return with a whole new bag of memories… and a few bags from bath and body works but that’s another post!
As promised, here is the second part of my Lush haul from Liverpool Street station. If you haven’t had the chance to read part one yet, go take a look at it here. For everyone else, here is the bath and body edition!
