Weekly Roundup


My weekend has been a very lovely and enjoyable one, with a little too much strawberry cider and honey Jack Daniel's...
I've started on my Christmas shopping, just about! I still have a lot to sort out, and I can't believe Christmas is a month today. I want my gifts to be really unique this year. There's a food and craft fair at Portmeirion next weekend which I think I'll go to. I love absorbing the Christmas spirit!

I have another little 'event' next weekend, my friend Lora is hosting an afternoon of Christmas shopping at her unit in Glynllifon with special discounts and offers. I'm going along to supply some freshly baked cakes, mince pies and a good old cup of tea! I'll be posting further information on here this week for anyone wanting to come along! 

For the time being, that's all I have to show! I have some DIY Christmas wrapping ideas coming up soon, as well as baking posts and a post swap!
I hope you've all had a very lovely weekend.

Life Lately...

Yet again, life has been rather hectic! I decided to take a day off on Friday to spend a little time doing the things I love! I went on a rather small shopping trip to Beaumaris with my dad in search of some Christmas presents.
Friday evening was spent at the cinema watching Breaking Dawn Part 2 with two of my best friends. I really enjoyed it, although I think I'll have to go and see it a second time to give a full and honest opinion. 
I got my hair done on Saturday - I'll have to post some decent photographs. You really can't see it in most of the photographs I took, but it's basically a combination of ash blonde / lilac! I'm really happy with it at the moment, I've been wanting to have a lilac tint for quite some time. 

As for this week, I'm hoping to get a lot of Christmassy DIY / crafty stuff sorted. I'll make sure I post the photographs on here, although I'm limited to weekend photography at the moment due to it being very dark when I come home from work each day. 
I hope you all had a lovely weekend. Are you up to much this week?

Weekly Roundup

This past week has been rather nice. My weekend was absolutely full to the brim, but very very lovely. On Friday, I went out for a lovely meal followed by a gig at a local pub.
Saturday was spent with Carla watching The Paper Cinema's Odyssey followed by a few drinks and a much needed catch up! 

I spent yesterday in Beaumaris with Lora. I have a thing about towns near the sea, I just instantly fall in love with them. Aberystwyth is definitely on the list of beautiful seaside towns, I love the smell of seaweed, the fresh sea air and the beautiful shops filled with hand crafted goodness.
Beaumaris is absolutely lovely. Lora's been dog sitting for the past week, and so we spent the afternoon sipping tea out of vintage teacups at Beau's Tea Room, followed by a lovely stroll along the pier and some window shopping. Most shops were unfortunately closed, or I'd arrived there a bit late... I'm definitely going to plan another visit some time this week. 

I've been meaning to start on my Christmas shopping, but in all honesty, after having a long chat with Lora, I'm going to support local produce and buy most of my Christmas gifts from the smaller shops and boutiques in the area. We also have many Christmas markets coming up, so I'll definitely be on the hunt for beautiful hand made presents!

It seems as though this week is going to be a busy one... I'm literally super excited to see Twilight on Friday, followed by a much needed hair appointment on Saturday...As well as trying to schedule in some retail therapy!

I hope you've all had a very lovely weekend, are you up to anything interesting this week?
Oh, and another thing...I'm definitely going to re-decorate my bedroom. Well, when I say re-decorate, I mean re-accessorise! I can't wait for a fresh new start and lovely new things to look at.
I'll keep you all updated...

Rose Nail Decals

Last Saturday, I returned home rather late after a lovely day out in Chester to see a beautiful little package on the kitchen table. It was from the ever so lovely Sophie. We'd arranged a post swap (and although my pretty stressful and exhausting life at the moment, I promise I'll get yours posted soon!)
I'll write about the other little gifts in the package in another post, but I just had to show you these absolutely lovely nail decals she sent me! 

I haven't been successful in applying nail transfers before. They always go wrinkly or look absolutely horrible. But these are really easy to apply. Once they're on your nail, they can be moved around before dabbing the excess water off. All you need to do then is apply a top coat nail polish, and you're done!

Anyway, on to today's plans...I'm off to see Lora and spend the afternoon in Beaumaris with her. I'm hoping the lovely tea room will be open so we can enjoy a slice of cake and a pot of tea. Life has indeed been rather emotionally exhausting lately, so thank you to all the faithful readers who have stuck by me through hard times!
I hope you've all had a very lovely week. Enjoy the rest of your Sunday.

Life Lately Part 2

Life lately has been pretty full. I've been trying to do as much as possible over the past week. 
Friday evening was spent at Dylan's - a restaurant I've been wanting to go to for a while. It was an overwhelmingly lovely meal out, I'd highly recommend it to absolutely anyone and everyone.
Saturday was a shopping day at Chester before heading over to the cinema to watch James Bond! 

I can't wait for this weekend. I've just booked tickets to go and see The Paper Cinema's Odyssey followed by a few cocktails in town with one of my best friends!

I don't have much to share for the time being. I'm still trying to relax, enjoy myself and most importantly 'discover' myself again. 
Before I fall asleep, I'd like to thank the lovely Sophie for my cute little package, and yours will be on the way soon, I promise!
