I have struggled with jet lag this week – going into work after two hours sleep was certainly interesting! I am back on UK time now although the darker mornings are making it harder to get up. We also had our first frost this week so the heating is officially allowed to be on!
We started watching Going Clear, a fascinating documentary on Scientology. I am really interested in what makes someone dedicate themselves to cults and religions like this and this is a good insight given by ex-members.
We headed over to Bristol midweek to watch Ed Gamble’s stand-up show. He was really good live and, despite being knackered, we both really enjoyed it.
It was my school’s firework display on Friday and I roped my brother into coming and helping. It was freezing but such good fun and I love that smell of bonfire and fireworks.
This weekend, I was at a friend’s wedding. It was such a fun and special day and I spent most of it laughing with my colleagues.
After a very indulgent week of lobster, beer and doughnuts in Boston, we have tried to eat well with lots of greens. I have got quite into kale again too, making kale chips or lightly sautéing it with lots of salt and pepper.
I bought this tea to try, having really enjoyed the Salted Caramel Green Tea that Twinings do. The Cherry Bakewell flavour isn’t quite as nice but it is still pleasant enough.
We bought quite a bit of food in America (mainly sweets!) and have been working our way through it – the almond snickers are delicious.
I had a really disappointing delivery from Boohoo this week. I really want a camel-coloured coat and ordered a few to try on. I found the quality of them really poor and ended up sending all 5 back.
I remembered why I don’t wear heels this weekend after lasting less than an hour in them before changing into flats so I could dance properly at the wedding. I just think some girls aren’t made for heels and I’m definitely in that category.
We didn’t really do anything for Halloween this year but I thought I would paint my nails black and orange to celebrate.
I’ve been loving this hand lotion from Molton Brown. It smells lovely and I need something to help keep my hands soft as it gets colder.
Finally, I have been using this shade (Bella Cappuccino) from Milani almost daily. It is a great base colour and I like the formula too.
