Dark Knight Night

Friday has to be my most favourite day of the week. I finish work at 3:15, and have two whole days of no work, and all play ahead. And the added bonus that I always find my Friday night sleep is the best of the week, Anyone else? Happy Friday.

A semi-busy weekend planned. Tonight is Dark Knight night - DVD, comfort food, Batman love and sibling banter. My boyfriend is in charge of cooking for his sister and I, and no doubt there will be instagram photos popping up. Lucky girl that I am, my boyfriend covers 90% of the cooking (and he's pretty good at it too, except pasta...)

Saturday Morning see's me braving my local swimming pool in a bikini. I haven't been swimming since Cuba - which is over 6 months ago! There is 6 of us going in total so it should be a fun start to the day. Minus the inevitable boyfriend-dunking incidents.
Once I am all de-chlorined its on to a movie marathon in thea cinema. I say marathon, but what I really mean is two films back to back in what are probably the most uncomfortable seats known to man. Gangster Squad first up, Hello Gosling. Followed by Les Mis.
I feel like I am cheating slightly by seeing Les Mis for the FIRST time in the cinema, but I guess if I like the film, then I will love the show?

Sunday will be our standard duvet day. Relaxi pants, more DVDs (Drive is definitely one of them. More Gosling please) and catching up on blog reading. Possibly maybe some house work. I never realised how hard keeping up a home was - moving out has taught me a lot, and to appreciate my Mum EVEN more.

Goodbye Christmas

It's official - Christmas is most definitely over.

Glitter covered, pine cone scratched and a temper tantrum, and the Christmas Tree is back in it's box. This Christmas is the first one in my own flat. Technically I still spent Christmas with my family in our family home but it was the first time I could decorate a tree for myself.

The day Ben and I went shopping for decorations is definitely one of my favourite days of 2012. We found local boutiques and picked out shabby chic style decorations and a few Yankee Candles for good measure. Each decoration was wrapped carefully in pretty scented paper and brown paper bags. I love little touches like that. It felt like a mini christmas unwrapping them and placing them on the tree. A stark contrast to Bens black tree and home bargains decorations last year!

The Wooden Star is my favourite. This one we saw, loved and walked away. 10 minutes later Ben informed me we just had to go back and get it. No objections here.

The decorations are now tucked safely away in a converse box ready for Christmas 2013.

Hello Twenty Thirteen.

I've been toying with restarting this blog, I've changed my mind,. Lots. But for now - I'm here.

What better way to start a New Year, than with a new blog full of fresh promise.

2012, was an epic year, and in a way I'm sad I didn't wrte about it. I don't plan on bringing a beauty blog back, more of a lifestyle blog - with a few outfit posts, plenty of photos, the odd review and a hell of a lot of rambles.
