London Zoo

Monday, 15 September 2014

Last Saturday me and Lew spent the day in London, well when I say London we mainly went to London Zoo then had a wonder around some shops too. Going to the zoo is one of my favourite things to do! I love animals and literally end up memorised by them and how beautiful they are. I managed to take a billion photos, but have narrowed it down to a few to show you!

This little guy was wondering around Regent's Park, I can't believe how tame the squirrels are there.

This sign made me laugh, but is so true!

I love this, it looks like they're kissing! :)


The weather was so funny, one minute it chucked it down the next it was brilliant sunshine. The animals seemed to know this and a lot of them seemed to hide away in their shelters so I would love to go back on a sunnier day when they are out and about a bit more.

We had such a lovely day and managed to get the zoo tickets BOGOF as we went by train so it didn't work out too expensive. Here is the link we used, incase you are looking to go by train too! :)

five things I have loved this week.. #7

Sunday, 14 September 2014

I am so sorry that I haven't managed to post this week, the evenings have just disappeared in front of my eyes and I haven't managed to sit down and blog until now! I always find that I can't blog if I am tired either as I tend to ramble, well slightly more than usual anyway. And this week I have felt super tired, I think I just love my bed too much! 

Heres a few things that have made me happy this week..

I have loved watching the iTunes festival whilst being snuggled up at night when I have had time. My favourites have been Sam Smith and Maroon 5 as if that wouldn't have been obvious anyway!

Today I popped out shopping with my mum and whilst we were in Boots I decided to mooch around the make up counters. I managed to pick up a few Maybelline items, including the new Color Drama lip pencils which look amazing.

This was a present from one of my friends from work who is going back to uni. Obviously I had to pick the one that looked most like a lipgloss!

This song is so catchy, the more I have listened to it the more I feel like going out and dancing the night away!

I got my mum a pandora bracelet for her birthday which now means that we have been hunting down beads to fill it with. The new autumn collection is beautiful and I wouldn't mind treating myself to a few beads for my bracelet too! 

I hope you all have a lovely week, I will definitely be back to posting a lot more again as I seem to have got myself back into a routine finally!

five things i have loved this week.. #6

Sunday, 7 September 2014



Hello, I hope you guys have had a lovely weekend! I am feeling much better now, so am back to doing my five things I have loved posts. My weekend has been jam packed, hence me just managing to post now. I went to London with Lewis yesterday which was so lovely and tried to appreciate some of the sun today by going for a walk.

Here'e 5 things that have managed to make me happy this week.


I finally got my Mini two weeks ago but decided to celebrate by falling over and not being able to drive it! I have wanted a Mini since I learnt to drive and finally found the perfect one, I just need to think of a name now! This definitely cheered me up although staring out of the window at it and not being able to drive it, did make me a little bit sad!



Whilst we were in London yesterday, Lewis whisked me off to London Zoo. I absolutely love the zoo, which I have probably mentioned on here a zillion times but haven't been to London in years as I live really close to Whipsnade so usually just go there. I had such a nice day out and will do a separate post on this too as I took way too many photos!

Sam Smith is one of my absolute favourite artists ever. I'm sure I have put one of his songs on my 'things I have loved' posts before but I thought the album needs to be mentioned. It is one of my favourite albums and was my go to listen when I was off work recovering. His voice is just beautiful and you can tell he means every word he sings.

Sometimes Ollie is a thug, sometimes he can be the cutest cat ever. He did spend my pyjama week off snuggled up next to me though so I am starting to like him a little more until he attacks my feet again.

I love the print of this scarf from Accessorize and everyone needs a bit of retail therapy to cheer themselves up, even if Lewis does keep trying to steal it! 

What have you all been up to this week?

I had every intention of doing a five things I have loved post, but I have had a bit of a drama going on, so I thought I would give you a little update of why I disappeared all of a sudden instead.

A week ago last Sunday, clumsy me tripped over my dress and fell face first into a table at work. If you follow me on twitter, you may have briefly seen me writing about this! It all happened so quickly that I can't remember a lot of the drama (thankfully!) but I ended up in A&E with my nose and lip being glued back together. I had a bit of a 'feeling sorry for myself' pyjama week last week as the swelling and everything went down. But hey I got to watch A Bugs Life cuddled up with my niece and a packet of chocolate buttons so it's not all bad! Everything is going back to normal now and luckily to look at me this week is a complete contrast as I am left with just a few scars that are starting to heal. I feel so much better now and although my face is still really sore and rubbish looking, I have realised how lucky I have been that I never done any more damage.

I want to say thank you for all of your lovely tweets and messages that have made me feel so much better! Hopefully I should be back to blogging more, although I need to wait for my lips to heal a bit more before I do anymore lipstick swatches as I hate just doing hand swatches but I'm sure I can be creative and work around it. I will just have to find other things that inspire me too!
