I know, I know, I have probably got to stop using payday as an excuse to treat myself to new makeup. However, when I saw a few deals and discounts across some of my favourite brands at Boots I got a little click happy and ended up having a little haul. Oops. It wasn’t all unnecessary or unneeded though; a few products were ones I had run out of or as good as. Anyhow, instead of trying to justify it – here’s what I picked up on my latest Boots haul;
When it comes to my hair, I’m hard to please. Or, more so, due to having such thick hair I often struggle to find a style or cut that works for me day to day after leaving the salon. So when I find a hairdresser I like, I tend to stick with them. My normal hair dresser is at my local Rush in Ealing, however he only works a handful of weekend days meaning it’s nearly impossible to get a cut that’s close to last minute. So, when I was invited down to Rush’s newly opened West Hampstead branch, I knew I was in safe hands. But, would it measure up to the high standards my past Rush experiences had been?
“Little Things Make Big Days” – Isabel Marant
With having so many happy things happen in May, it’s surprising to say I’ve not been in my best head space. However, in an effort to remind myself to “shake yourself up Fran you’ve got no reason to be glum!” I thought it was time for another “It’s Little Things In Life” post. And with that, this list put a huge smile on my face. So here’s some little things that have made this month all that sweeter;
Last week, along with a selection of bloggers, I was invited to The Waterway in Maida Vale by Eat Off The Menu. The Waterway is one of the many restaurants that Eat Off The Menu has partnered with to offer a range of unique dishes that are only available if you chose to “eat off the menu”. Rasheed, Head Chef at The Waterway created “The Real Mediterranean” just for customers of Eat Off The Menu. Here’s a sneak peek at the secret dish and a little more about the concept;
As you may have seen on my Twitter, next weekend I’m heading of to Newbury races for the Al Shaqab Lockinge Day. Personally, I love getting glammed up and having a little bet (or a flutter as my grandad used to say) so I’m really excited already! As part of their #WinInStyle competition Newbury Racecourse are not only providing a £5 off code if you enter FUN17 at the checkout when buying your ticket for the Al Shaqab Lockinge Day, but also a chance to win a stay at their new hotel The Lodge. With that in mind, I’ve come up with some purchases I’m tempted to make in time for the weekend;
I’ve never been one for five year plans or anything like that, but, back in January I decided to come up with 30 things that I wanted to do or achieve in 2017. Aka my 2017 bucket list. Being 5 months in, I thought it would be an ideal time to see how much headway I was making. As I blogged the original list, I thought “hey, why not blog my progress too!”. So in case you fancy a nosy, here’s how I’m getting on with the list so far;
