Weekend Treats

The coursework load has eased off a little so I'm feeling relaxed and free enough to sit down and blog a little- how nice!
This week has been filled with fun things and not so fun things. I started off by applying to 11 jobs all across my town, avoiding coursework until the night before, visiting a newly opened ice cream parlour, going to the cinema and finishing it with late night baking and a shopping trip with mother dearest.



Bakery
I did actually attempt to appoint Sam as the typical blogger's-boyfriend-photographer to take some snaps of me baking but all I got was a picture of his legs... After eating the majority of the vicky sponge between three of us, I decided to take a quick picture of the final slice. I love an overdose of buttercream, I do.

Shopping trip delights
I'm desperately saving for an upcoming trip to London, hoping for a trip to Turkey and general college life needs, so the very little money I spent today was actually quite difficult to part with. Let's take a peek...
Whittard had a sale on, and therefore my mother was more than happy to swipe up these three teas in a flash. Orange Blossom, Chilli Chai and an Organic Revive Infusion were the perfect treat once we were in from a busy, rainy day.

I've genuinely been lusting after the Revlon lip butters for about half a year. I finally got around to purchasing one of my own (in Macaroon) and I'm a very happy bunny.
I felt like going absolutely wild and bought a 17 Nail Varnish in Ruby Gem I did actually intend on trying out one of the new gel ones, but none of the colours really called out to me.

The Works was selling Diet Doodle Diary for £2.99 when it was originally a tenner, I took a look through and it was the most adorable and (hopefully) productive way I think I can possibly get my health and fitness all organised. It's full of little week logs/plans and gives you random little challenges along with tons of inspirational little messages. It was the last one in the shop and i took that as a sign of it being made for me. A good way to describe it is kind of like a Wreck This Journal with less chaos and more fitness. Capisce?

So that's pretty much my weekend.
See you ladies laters!

    1. Oh thank you so much, I always take pictures too late for decent lighting, so I have to edit them and I'm never sure if they come out okay, so that means a lot! I've tried the lip butter out just today, so don't have too detailed an opinion but I'm glad I purchased it- it's good stuff! :) x
