I only have one week to go until the summer break and I am pretty much in holiday mode now! We’ve had a few nice sunny days too which feel long overdue.
This weekend, we went on a lovely country walk near our village and apart from a dangerous dash through some stinging nettles (!) it was great!
Last night we watched Everest and I loved it. I love a good natural disaster film and this was gripping.
I have been really enjoying this book although I can’t help but feel so sad and angry when I read about how badly women are treated in Afghanistan.
Whilst everyone – including Ian – seems to be losing their mind over the new Pokemon app, I have fallen for the Prisma app. Based on famous paintings, it gives a cool twist to photos.
Finally, my job for today was to clean out my car. Not the most fun task but I filled 2 bin bags full of rubbish and I found £3.44 and a necklace I thought I had lost!
I always think that the more colourful your plate is, the healthier it is so I roasted a huge tray of veg this week.
I also cooked tuna steaks – one of my favourite fish to eat.
After dinner, I have been having a small bowl of this coffee ice cream. It reminds me of Baileys without the alcoholic taste and is a lovely way to end a meal.
We went out for dinner this week. As it was a nice evening, we stopped by the canal for drinks and I ordered a Fruli. I drank this strawberry beer when I was at uni and it really reminded me of my student days. We ate at Smokey’s, an American-style restaurant and, of course, I went for ribs!
Finally, I baked this week…salted caramel and hazelnut brownies.
I may have had a little slice for my breakfast this morning too!
I have three beauty favourites to share this week. Firstly, a bright coral pink lip gloss from NYX in the shade Peach Cobbler.
On my eyes, I have been applying this cream eyeshadow from Calvin Klein in the shade Cashmere Plum. It gives a lovely sweep of shimmery pink and lasts surprisingly well.
Finally, I rediscovered this beautiful marble blusher in the back of my drawer. This is Corallina by Milani and has a pretty golden shimmer running through it.
Loving the bandana trend to hide a bad hair day…
I wore these silk trousers to work the other day and felt to summery…I love this print!
I also made a little La Redoute order in the sale. The other half of it hasn’t arrived yet but here is a sneak peek of some of the footwear I ordered.
