Life Lately #7

To say that this week was a random selection would be an understatement.  This is what you get from a rather uneventful week people! Having said that, there's been some good little discoveries and some new lusts! 

1.  Watermelon Salad - because the weather has been so hot, I've been having a bit of a 'salad-fest' lately and this will continue into next week so be prepared for my Instagram to be full of colourful and interesting salads this week too! On Friday night I made one of my favourites, I spotted this in Grazia magazine last year and it's a firm favourite at my house.  It's a mixture of Watermelon, cherry tomatoes, Feta Cheese, Fresh Mint and Zataar and it's heavenly! 

2. 'I'm thankful I had a childhood before technology took over' (here's the randomness!) I saw this on Instagram this week and it made me reflect on things and try to imagine what being a child would be like in this day and age and I have to say, it did make me feel a little sad.  I had such a fantastic childhood and the introduction of smart phones and the internet has changed the way children play and grow up.  I know for a fact that I am a culprit of being an internet and phone addict but I'm glad that these devices did not exist when I was growing up.  I think it has had an adverse effect on the youth of today (I'll get off my soapbox now! and jeez, how old do I sound?!!) 

3. Mini-haul - I went in to buy cotton wool pads, I came out with this selection (and almost forgot the cotton wool pads!) I've been reading quite a bit about the budget brand 'Make Up Revolution' and picked up their brow kit and the BB Foundation.  I also managed to finally get my hands on Models Own 'Beach Bag' after 3 months of searching!! Oh and just for good measure I also picked up two new Gelly polishes from Barry M in 'Almond' and 'Blackberry' - readying myself for Autumn! :)

4.  Peanut Butter and Raisin Cookies - I made these on Saturday morning.  They were fantastic. That is all!

5. New YSL Foundation - I'm hearing fantastic things about this and I'm very excited to try, desperately trying to use up some foundations at the moment to make room!

6. Soundcloud - when you can't be in Ibiza enjoying the array of amazing DJ's currently playing dreamy laid back house music, what's the next best thing? Listening to endless mixes on Soundcloud for free :) I had dabbled in Soundcloud a few years ago but only recently discovered they have an App for my iPhone.  Very addictive. :)

7. Breath Freshener - I got sucked in waiting to pay at Boots by all the little products they place near the till.  This is the cutest looking little breath freshener for your handbag in, wait for it, mojito mint! What's not to like?! It wasn't cheap at £3.99 but I love it and thought I'd share it with you! 

8. Bag Lusting - just how gorgeous is this little wrist bag from Givenchy? I want it soooooo bad! I love the shape of it and I don't have any wrist bags....is this a perfectly good reason for me to buy one?! :)

And that's all folks!

Another OOTD for you tomorrow,  followed by some product reviews in the week for somethings I've been road testing over the last few days. 

Wishing you all a great start to your week!

  1. Love all of these snapshots..I can relate to all of them in one way or another! Loving Makeup Rev products at the mo and been reviewing a few bits on my blog. Also agree with the quote...not really thought about it that deeply before but it hits the nail on the head. Sad really...we'll soon be saying 'Back in my day' and sounding super old! :) Danielle x
