Yay! It’s another edition of The Friday Blog, were I fill you guys in on what I’ve been up to this week! I’ve been a little under the weather this week and erm (PMSing) so haven’t really been up to much I’m afraid but I really wanted to do a Friday blog so anyway, here we go!
This week beauty hasn’t really been that high on the priority list if I’m honest with you. I do however really need to purchase a new face powder as I’m afraid my trusty MAC Studio Fix is on its last legs. If you guys have any recommendations for me, please comment below! I’ve also started using hand cream again as in the winter my poor hands go so dry and sore that it actually gets quite painful at times! I’m trying to find a cream that helps me without leaving my hands feeling all sticky and greasy and every year it proves impossible, if you guys have any recommendations please again leave me a comment!
I’ve been rather under the weather this week with a cold and PMS so fitness (just like beauty) hasnt been that important to me. I did on Monday however get up at 6 and manage to go the gym for a hour. I’m also planning on going today before a family brunch I have planned and Sunday. I found a new exercise machine that’s a killer but really pushes you it’s called the Stairmaster and it pretty much simulates you walking up stairs but you can adjust the level to make it harder or easier, I swear I’ve thought so much whilst walking up stairs. The way I look at it, as long as I go at least three times a week I’m happy. At the moment I’m not beating myself up over not going that much as I’ve got a lot going on at the moment.
Healthy eating hasn’t been a biggie on the agenda either (just like beauty and fitness, hey! Noticing a pattern?) I don’t know about you guys but when I’m ill I just wanna eat crap and feel sorry for myself. I am trying my hardest though, I swear next week I’ll be better!
I did have one fairly healthy meal this week surprisingly and that was when I went for Brunch with my Nannie which is odd as she’s usually encouraging me to eat all kinds! I went for Eggs Florentine, which may not be the healthiest thing in the works but the eggs were a source of protein, and the spinach were my greens. For me, eggs florentine is my go to brunch choice when I fancy a treat that isn’t too bad for you and it makes a welcome change from avocado on toast!
I’m on the second week of my masters course and I’m still loving it, the commute can be a bit of a nightmare at times and it means I no longer have Thursday nights but it’ll be worth it in the end I’m sure. One programme in absolutely addicted to still is Great British Bake Off and now especially more so since it’s moving to channel 4 and won’t be the same anymore! I’ve always loved baking and cooking in general, so it’ll come as no surprise that me and my girlfriends are booking to go to The Good Food Show once again, a day of food and drink? Could I resist?!
At the moment we’re enjoying peace in our house as from next week the building work starts on my house and I won’t have a living room for a month! Yay!
So Autumn has well and truly hit Britain this week, this means it’s time for me to invest in some good quality chunky knits and ankle boots. If there’s one thing I truly love about Autumn it’s the clothes you get to wear. I’ve always been a jeans and boots girl, always will. I’ve seen some gorgeous knits in the likes of Topshop and H&M so I think this weekend may include a few sneaky purchases!
And that’s The Friday Blog for this week! I know, I know it’s not the most exciting and glamorous blog I’ve ever done but hey that’s life some weeks are action packed some are tea and telly in your pjs!
