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!
I’m sure I have mentioned maybe once or twice my love for lush, so as soon as I walked past the Stratford store this week and spied the new Christmas collection I knew I had a few purchases to make. So I bought 7 things altogether, a mixture of ones I have tried before and some new ones to review. I also finally have a use for my cute little wire baskets from H&M! I like how they are easy to get to, and they just fill my room with that iconic lush smell.
Photo Heavy Post!
Well it’s accidentally been
a little quite a while since I have last posted, so sorry about that! But I have been trying to prepare for my mini break and just enjoying London in the Winter 🙂 And what better way to throw myself back in than with a post on Christmas! It’s only 54 days until my favourite time of year, so I thought I would do a top 5 stocking fillers, as there is always secret santa’s to buy for, and family members wondering what you want so I’m going to make that job so much easier.
Holidays are quite literally what I live for, I only have 20 days until my next little break, so I am sure you will all have to deal with another post about me being extremely sad again soon! But in the mean time, my lovely friend Jess has tagged me in her Holiday blogger tag, so go check out hers as she is always jetting off and is soon to make you jealous!
As I am writing this, I am tucked up in bed with a flat lemonade and a hot water bottle, desperate to not be sick again. For some reason it is always me, I have a really weak immune system that picks up sickness bugs and viruses like there is no tomorrow. This has resulted in the past 2 days me being sick off of work which I absolutely hate (I quite enjoy my job don’t you know!) At my last job – a popular clothing retailer – you was not allowed to be sick, you had to come in even if you spent the day with your head in the toilet (retail is hard) as you was just a number to them, so it is a weird feeling for me when everyone at my new place is only concerned with you getting better – they are a bit lovely 🙂
Well this week has been just like any other in terms of workload! But with the addition of my Macbook Air deciding to bloody break! 🙁 Luckily super Matt came to the rescue and we *think* he has fixed it. So my Monday date night post is coming slightly later than expected! But anyway, we decided that this week would would try something new and go to All Star Lanes in Stratford.
This past week has been extremely busy, so I may have fallen back on blogging. But what better opportunity than to share what I have actually been up to in a roundup! Just a prior warning, this post is probably going to be quite photo heavy!
Matt and I have had a lot to celebrate lately, we both got new jobs, I graduated university with a first class honours, we have just started our search for our first home together, we welcomed our beautiful baby niece into the world and Matt even published his first book! So it’s been a very busy year already, and we needed a date night to just spend sometime together. We decided that we wanted to go to one of our favourites, Miller & Carter for our evening.
