A Snapshot: Wednesday


- i can’t tell you how happy i am to only be working three days a week this summer, instead of working full time as i’ve done for the past few years. it’s so nice to have a couple of days each week to tackle my university reading list, potter round the house, and to tick things off my to-do list. tuesdays and wednesdays are ‘me-time’, and i love them!

- my day began so virtuously, with a lovely grapefruit for breakfast, a work out, and plans of a healthy supper of pork steaks and cabbage. but then we decided to have chinese takeaway instead. oops. it was yummy though. fun fact: we’ve ordered the exact same stuff from the exact same chinese restaurant for the past 20 odd years. this may or may not have led to them knowing who we are on the phone just by the food we order, before we give them our name ;)

- my lovely new topshop lipsticks arrived yesterday afternoon (hurrah!) and so today i sat down in front of my mirror to test them all out! the one pictured above is a super duper bright orange called infrared, and i adore the colour but am a bit disappointed with the dry consistency. i think i’ll try combining it with some some lip balm before writing it off, because i love the colour too much to give it up!

-alfie’s day consisted of: following my mum and i for a wander round the pond, chasing after a squirrel, flies and even a few leaves, and attempting to scare a little scotty dog off his ‘turf’ by puffing up himself up and scuttling along sideways like a little crab. after all that excitement the little lamb’s so tired he’s been conked out on the sofa all evening :)

- my mum had dinner at our house this evening, and just now we all had a ‘who can stand on one leg with their eyes shut for the longest time’ competition. i won. this is apparently what my years of dance training have boiled down to ;)

-today i’ve been watching: the devil wears prada, listening to: florence and the machine enjoying: chatting to my best friend for the first time in so long, after she’s been bombing round asia for the past month!

    I love when cats do the crab thing, I got my oldest cat just before I started dating Luke and the first time he came around she did that to him! She was very overprotective of me haha x
