1. This week saw my return to Southampz! Semester Two and proper teaching doesn't start until the 17th, but we have to go in for odd tutorials and feedback sessions, hence the reason I'm back already. I've spent the majority of my week in bed, reading magazines and watching DVDs. Yusss.

2. This was taken on my phone, so apologies for crap quality! I spent last Sunday at my Gran's house, eating good food followed by Mini Magnum ice-creams, so adorable! I'm so gutted that I'm missing her birthday next week ):

3. My last, indulgent, Lush bubble bath at home on Tuesday night. I seriously miss having the option of taking a bath while I'm at Uni.

4. My lame attempt at unpacking. Throw it all on freshly washed bedsheets... Obviously a good idea... Not. It took me about 4 hours to unpack and put everything away in the end - FOUR HOURS. Took a well deserved nap right afterwards.

5. My MAC quad pro palette arrived! I haven't actually used either of my shadows yet, but the palette is put together and ready to be played with. Exciting!

6. This was the reading I told myself I would do over the Christmas break. Which I left at Uni. Clever(!) Attempted to read this on Friday, and I didn't finish the reading until about 8pm. Fun Friday night in anyone?!

7. Popped to the Uni library on Thursday with Emily and Lauren, to pick up some books, and found this in the Graphic Design section. A swatch book. Of typefaces. Amazing.

8. Missed The Big Bang Theory on Thursday due to my incapability to make my printer work! So I caught up on every Uni student's dream: 4oD. Sheldon just completes my life hahaha.

9. Had an amazing, overwhelming response to my post on Thursday! I just had to print screen it, the comments were so great to read and brought up lots of issues and opinions that are usually quite taboo and brushed aside.

10. My flatmates and I have an insane obsession with chocolate desserts! Currently 2 for £1.50 in the Co-Op and Asda, you should see the state of our fridge at the moment. Pretty much chocolate desserts, chocolate, Lush facemasks and some milk. For coffee of course. All the essentials!

11. I finally had a good hair day! Well, by that I mean I bothered to condition my hair and blowdry my hair! Pyjamas are from Topshop (:

12. Bit of Ed Westwick on my iPod wallpaper! Soz gals, it had to be done, I know I'm sad!

13. MEEE! I'm not sure why I took this... But I did...

14. Black cherry jam on toast! And breaded ham on toast. Saturday's breakfast before spring-cleaning and later popping into town with the gals. And I would absolutely recommend black cherry jam - so good.

15. Reorganised my shelves. This is my "interests shelf". Nerdy? Yes.

16 and 17. We baked brownies :D

18. SO unbelievably nice outside today. Our living room is an absolute sauna haha, and the views look lovely again as opposed to grey and dreary with rain.


  1. I love those Flake yoghurts! And those brownies have given my itchy fingers for some baking this afternoon!

    Penny x

  2. Oh my gosh, love your Eyeko nail polish collection. I think your food pictures will always be my favorite!

    Is that a ham and jelly sandwich?

  3. Your food pictures make me so so so hungry!
    And now that picture of ed has made me miss gossip girl even more... i can't wait anymore!! aha

    if you feel like baking brownies from scratch, you should check out my recipe on my blog ;) it's like the easiest thing in the world! x

  4. Penny: They're so good! Wish they were a tiny bit bigger like the Muller Corners though ): Oooh you should do some baking, perfect Sunday afternoon for it! And you should blog about it too, y'know... ;) x

    Alyse: Eee thanks sweet (: I have more in the tub behind the first row, along with my other polishes. Thanks lovely! Food photography seems to be my calling? Nooo aha, One slice with jam, one with ham. I'm weird like that.

    Heather-Louise: Haha good, it is lunch-ish time and all ;) Oh I think it's back next week? Got my fingers crossed that a new ep pops up on the website on Tuesday anyway! Oh I'll have a look at that now actually, I really want to get into baking!

  17. ooooooh Flake yoghurts AND Ed Westwick . . . good week!

  18. Rose: Thank you! Next week will probably be equally as lazy to be honest, and then it'll probably completely reverse and I'll be too busy to blog once Uni starts again! Ee me too, was worth making the effort to put it on my iPod! xxxx

    Amy: Ee thank you sweet (: It's lost most of its volume today though, sucks to be me!

    Ifee: Oh you should, the Cadbury's ones are so good!

    Naomi: Yes indeed ;) Haha I know, I couldn't decide what to have, and it wasss my brunch! LOL his accent is so pretty, but nothing spectacular, he grew up in my hometown so he just sounds like my pals! Not complaining though...!

    Lucy: YES HIGH FIVE! My flatmates think I'm a little mad as well aha! (:

    Holly: Nooo, I found it on a fan website somewhere and resized, changed the colouring a little (: The brownies taste so good!

    Chic Geek: Thanks aha (:

    Gem: INDEED! The jam was breakfast, ham was the lunch part - my idea of brunch on that particular day ;) N'awh thank you lovely xx

Haha thanks for the heads up on the asda 2 for 1 offer, you can be sure I shall be visiting my local very soon :) Aww finally another person who loves cherry jam as much as me! Can eat it straight out of the jar, no joke :) This must mean you are a lover of the wonderful thing that is Blackforest Gateau too? ;) Yum!

    Aysh xoxo

  32. Omgosh I bought some of those Flake yoghurts yesterday! Am yet to try them, had my buttons one instead last night :) mmmm! Really want to get a quad or maybe a bit palette and start building it up! Did you just get the pans or the whole eyeshadow? I'm not sure what to get as depotting seems like a hassle and in the end it will be the same price to buy a lipstick as it will be BACK2MACing them! x

  33. I think i needed your life this week. The food has made me crave literally everything (minus the ham - i'm vege!). I would love to have a bath right about now, but our's is always skank. Plus the mac make up/nail varnishes/ big bang have just made me completely jealous.
    NOT FAIR! x

  34. I have such a lust for jam. It's one of life's greatest pleasures in my books. I best leave before this becomes even creepier :/

Once I fill my quad, I'll probs buy a few whole shadows though. xx
