Hey Friday hun, you’re looking pretty bladdy beautiful.
I’m excited to stay in tonight, light 753563 candles, eat some pasta, drink tea and maybe caress my acne a bit. Y’know, the usual evening in for any twenty seven-year-old. Rock ‘n’ roll and all that.
This week’s been a fun one with Disneyland and an overnight stay in Paris (vlog and post to come on Sunday, so long as I get my tush in gear), but also a super busy one, hence why I’m excited for some downtime with my sofa, generous cushion collection and cats.
I’m also heading to Surrey this weekend for the first Gale get-together of the year to celebrate my dad and cousin’s birthday, so I’m super pumped to catch up with brothers and sisters and aunties and uncles and everyone in-between and start plotting Christmas plans because guess who’s put themselves in charge of Gale Christmas this year? (Clue, she runs a blog and like nachos).
I mean, it’s just a casual buffet and games day for 35 people, so no biggie, eh?
Anyway here’s a few faves and not so faves from the past week…
G O I N G U P
NYX LIP LINERS – I’ve somehow managed to lose every pencil sharpener in my oversized cosmetic and stationery stash and so, naturally, I had to go and bulk buy some new lip liners instead of y’know just buying a new sharpener. I stumbled into the Liverpool Street Boots branch earlier this week for a fruit salad, dry shampoo and a couple new pencils and sweet diggity, these £5.50 NYX Slide-On ones are absolutely the one. Incredibly pigment, incredibly matte and the colour didn’t budge after five hours, one cocktail and five canapes. Just sayin’. I have shades ‘Summer Tease‘ and ‘Brick House‘.
TEEN MOM UK – You all know how obsessed with Teen Mom, Teen Mom 2 and 16 And Pregnant I am (LOL I actually had a dream I went back to Chattanooga Wholefoods earlier this week, so there’s that), so obvs I’m mega pumped there’s a UK version now too. It started last Wednesday on MTV and OMG SO OBSESSED. Even Chris is hooked too. It follows the lives (and dramas) of five British teenage mums and uh huh, you need it in your life and stat.
GREY BOBBLE HAT – I have been wearing this obsessively (aside from when I had my sequin Minnie ears on), because a) it hides greasy, frizzy hair b) it’s super cosy and basically acts like an umbrella and c) it’s kinda cool, right? You know me, I’m all about the hat life, so for winter I’ve traded in my fedoras and straw fellas for this little marl grey cutie from River Island. Fo’ sho’ one to add to the Christmas list.
G O I N G D O W N
JOHN LEWIS CHRISTMAS ADVERT – Oh man, I desperately wanted to love the new Christmas advert because let’s face it, it’s usually about number 7 on the list of best things about the festive period – squeezed somewhere between the Coca Cola advert and board games. But alas nope. It *probably* has something to do with the lack of cats. What do you guys think, did #BusterTheBoxer make you sob into your Starbucks red cup just the right amount?
DONALD TRUMP – I haven’t got much to say except kindness. Kindness a hundred times over. Kindness to your best friend, kindness to a colleague, kindness to a stranger in the street. The only way to fight fear and uncertainty is with love and kindness <3
NAUSEA – As I’m typing this I’m currently riding one of the most boring waves of nausea to ever exist. It’s been coming and going for a few days now and seems to come on most strongly an hour or two after eating and the only time I feel half-human is when I’m actually eating. DULLSVILLE. I *think* it’s because of a new pill I’ve recently started, so am hoping lots of peppermint tea will ease this not-so-sexy influx of hormones. WAH. Has anyone else suffered from this?
