Current Obsessions.

Hey everyone ๐Ÿ™‚
Hows the beginning of the week for you? I have a day off today, as I’ve got to use up all of my holiday before the end of the month -so expect me to be hanging around quite a bit ๐Ÿ™‚

I thought I would do a Current Obsessions post today – I haven’t really bought anything new to really merit a haul (although I know I still need to do a post on my 21st birthday haul – but that will take some time hehe – all I seemed to get was makeup, nail polishes or bath stuff!). I have won a few things recently, but I’m waiting to receive the rest of my prizes before I do a post on those too! And I would love to do an outfit post, but unfortunately I’m having to use my Blackberry at the minute until I can afford a new camera, so these shall have to wait!

What are your current obsessions?

I am actually addicted to this stuff right now! My Nan introduced me to it many years ago, but I only ever used to drink it when I was round her house. However, I saw it in the supermarket a couple of weeks back, and HAD to have it. It is definitely an acquired taste, S cannot stand it, but I think its absolutely yummy! You can drink it hot or cold, but as the weather seems to be heating up right now, I’m enjoying mine ice cold!

I don’t know whether I can call this a current obsession or not – I suppose it is, because I’m currently obsessed with it – but I’m ALWAYS obsessed with it ๐Ÿ™‚ I first smelt this in one of my magazines – you know the little peel-off stickers they have? I smelt it and decided from that day forward, I would have it! It took me a couple of years before I actually had money of my own and could justify buying it – but I’m never without a bottle now! I currently have about two or three bottles waiting to be used, because everyone knows how much I love it and always buy me it! I was wearing it the other night, and my former boss smelt it and instantly knew what it was – we haven’t worked together in two years, but he still remembers what perfume I wear! ๐Ÿ™‚

I received this book for Christmas, and although I’m not reading it from cover to cover, every now and then I’ll dip in and read a couple of pages which make me roar with laughter. Its all about little notes that flatmates leave for each other – some are funny, some are sad, some are angry and some are just grim! It gives a hilarious insight into the secret life of flatsharing!

Finally, blogging! I’ve been really feeling it this week, and I’m grateful to my readers for actually taking the time to read my blog! I’m still very protective of this, so not many people in my day to day life have actually seen this blog – so comments from other bloggers mean a lot. This week, I have received some amazing comments from some of you, I have also gained some new followers and a few more entries into my giveaway! It means so much to have people actually taking the time to read what I write, so thank you.

What have you got planned for the rest of the week? Mines pretty boring -work, housework, training for work, more housework….
But how about you?

Sunday Rambles

How has everyones weekend been so far? I’ve been feeling pretty rough myself this weekend, but a few things have cheered me up over the past few days!

Smiles

-Receiving my Lulu Guinness bag through the post ( a win with the Daily Telegraph) – will be posting a picture over the next couple of days
-Spending Friday with my girls – shopping, meal out, shopping, meal out & then a concert – what could be better?
-Winning Charlottes giveaway ( you can find her blog here) I can’t wait to try out my prizes!
-Receiving more entries for my giveaway (haven’t entered? Find it here ๐Ÿ™‚

-Receiving the loveliest comment from Emma at Artificial Intelligence – really made me smile when I was feeling particularly ill at work yesterday!
-Got my girl Emily coming round tonight for a chilled out evening with her & S.

Frowns

-Feeling incredibly rough all weekend, only just starting to feel better! Having to a seven hour shift with it is really horrible!
-Even though Westlife were amazing, I did feel rough whilst there too! I certainly enjoyed myself but can’t help thinking I may have enjoyed it even more.
-Money problems. As always! Can’t wait until the middle of the week when it will all be sorted ๐Ÿ™‚

What are your smiles & frowns of the week? Had any nice presents from your friends or family recently? Or has a comment on your blog really made you smile?

Westlife!

Sorry for the lack of updates over the past few days, I’ve had an extremely busy week and it all culminated with me going to see Westlife at the 02 in London last night!
They were absolutely amazing! I know that most of you will just expect them to do their normal songs, and stand up off their stools on the key change, but they did none of this. Well – they obviously did some of their normal songs, but their medley was fantastic! I never thought I would hear Westlife sing Coldplay, Rihanna, Black Eyed Peas and Lady Gaga songs, but omg, they did!

Here are some photos from the concert

This was when they were posing for a picture ๐Ÿ™‚ They told everyone to get their cameras & phones out and to take some pictures of them! I was too far to really get anything worthy.

This was another picture of them posing!

This was on the bar that came out and over, above the crowds heads. It was amazing <3

They were supported by Wonderland (which includes Kian’s wife Jodi in the lineup) and an adorable guy named Glenn Cal! His voice is brilliant, why not check him out on Youtube?

Now you know why I haven’t been blogging as much, but fear not, I shall appear frequently over the next couple of days with some more ramblings!

For now,

Ahhh Pancakes

Well I was a good girl today…. and I didn’t have pancakes! Basically, my boyfriends on a diet and I’m on a fitness kick so I’m trying to be as supportive to him & as good to me as I can.
However, my boyfriend treated me to a little something:

How sweet of him! He knew we wouldn’t have pancakes so got me him as a treat instead ๐Ÿ™‚ Just filled my chocolate fix too! I’m going to have to be very good for the next few days!

I didn’t go for a walk with my friend tonight, as I’m suffering with my back today, however I shall be carrying on again tomorrow!

What did you have on your pancakes(lucky people!) ?

For now,

Mission Get Fit

Yes, I have finally crumbled and decided that I need to get fit. My boyfriend and half of my friends are all dieting/keeping fit so I thought I may as well do so whilst I’ve got some company to share the pain with ๐Ÿ˜›

I kid. But, seriously, I’ve always said I am going to do it, but I never do. I attempted Zumba once, but I was so out of breath after a couple of dances that I haven’t been since! Also, recently, I have been suffering a lot with my back (I have a bad back), and my doctor has prescribed painkillers and referred me to physiotherapy. I’ve decided that I am going to take a brisk walk each evening to start with, and then build up to a jog when I feel up to it. Hopefully, with the help of healthy eating, I shall lose some weight and maybe it will alleviate some of the pain.

I’ve also just heard that my local gym only costs ยฃ20 a month, or ยฃ5 for a one-off trip. I may have to take a little mooch up there! So I’m sitting here in my trackie bottoms, hoodie and trainers, having got in from a walk with my good friend Sophie, and I can’t wait to do more. Roll on tomorrow night, I say!

Are any of you dieting or trying to get fit?
What methods do you use?

For now,
