10 things that’ve made me happy this week…


Iceland Photo found via Pinterest (of course! & originally from Best Travel Photos.

1. Finding out that Anthropologie is coming to Guildford! Oh my. I think it’s time I got an overdraft. I tweeted about it in excitement, and after reading the tweet Jason’s colleague Ian called out to the office at large ‘Ooh, Anthro’s coming to Guildford!’. Jason apparently replied ‘Oh God, don’t tell Rosie!’ Oh dear. Too late my man, too late ;)

2. Looking forward to my trip to London with Jase on Sunday! We’re planning on getting our burger on, and are trying to decide between Patty & Bun, and Burger & Lobster. Any recommendations?

3. Painting my nails five different shades of blue. Jason says it’s not doing much to help my effort to look less like a teenager, but it’s just too fun to care!

4. Power naps. It’s true, twenty minutes really does do the trick!

5. Watching new episodes of The Office U.S! I did a little dance of excitement when I saw Season 7 had been made available on Netflix. We’re burning through the episodes though, so Season 8 better be on its way!

6. Managing to find an old favourite cardigan that I thought I’d lost last winter. It’s got a button missing that I’ll need to replace, but I’m excited to wear it again this autumn!

7. Completing a crossword (start to finish mind you!) in less than twenty minutes before bed with Jase the other night.

8. Dark chocolate with sea salt caramel. Divine.

9. Wearing jeans again! I’d missed my jeans! Also, a pair that were super super tight a few months ago are now a perfect, comfy fit, which is so happy-making!

10. Watching Ted charge around the garden when pigeons dare to land on the fence. The look of contempt on his face makes me laugh every time! Also, he does what we call his ‘double busy’ walk whilst stalking them. Fellow Mickey Flanagan fans will get it ;)

What’s made you happy this week?

    I’d try Patty & Bun first, then if the queue is ridiculous try Burger & Lobster. Patty & Bun is DEFINITELY the better of the two, although Burger & Lobster is also pretty awesome.

    Aww I love when you do these :)

    I hope to do something similar next week as its my birthday on sunday and holidaying to cornwall for the first time this week so should have lots of things that make me happy :) x

    Its amazing how your 10 things happy list is so nice to go through.
    I do the same with #3 and its total bliss.

    Happy Anniversary and have your blast!

    Happy anniversary! If you’re definitely after burgers, go for Patty & Bun or Honest burger! Burger & Lobster burger’s alright but a bit pricey for what it is – and the lobster’s so much tastier!

    Have a fab time!

    Oh I loved Patty & Bun when I went, but am also dying to try Burger & Lobster. The former is quite… messy though! I adored your blue ombre nails, really must get round to doing something similar, I’m sure I have more than 5 shades of a colour to use. xx

    Congratulations to you and Jason on your fourth anniversary! Have a fabulous day in London :) Byron Burger is another good one, though it’s pretty mainstream so may not be what you’re looking for on this occasion! xx

  • http://www.ladyliquorvtg.com Catherine,

    Goodness, dark chocolate with sea salt caramel sounds lovely! Have fun in London, xo.

  • Beth

    hahah, what did you think of the opening The Office dub? I must have watched at least twenty times now! and I vote Patty & Bun, sdfjsnzk they’re good. happy anniversary for tomorrow xx

    Patty & Bun is a must try! If you do go, try to time it so you don’t have to queue too much as it gets so busy. It is utterly delicious there. I hope you have a wonderful time in London! x

    Realising that I had actually managed to walk past the Anthropologie on Regent’s Street yesterday made me pretty happy. Not as happy as going in and buying everything mind you, but definitely happier than having nothing left to live on! Exciting times ahead in Guildford :) We’re celebrating our anniversary as well this weekend, so all round that’s made it a very happy week. Enjoy your London wander and burgers!

    I wish we lived close, we could go to Anthropologie together and do some SERIOUS damage. That’s one of my favorite stores. I always come out with bags and bags of stuff. Patrick hates it lol

    I would definitely recommend Patty & Bun (i’ve literally just put up a post about them if you want to give it a quick look?). Hope you have a lovely time in London! x

    Gotta love the US Office, I have always been madly in love with John Krasinski. And there really is nothing better than a nice nap, I agree

    Yes anthropologie in Guildford made my day!!!!! Also if you go to burger and lobster it’s £20 for a lobster and sooo tasty you would be silly to get a burger there they are £20 too! If burger is your thang try five guys or shake shack in covent garden. If five guys is busy pre order on the website to avoid that silly long queue! ;) xxx

    Lovely post! I love the way you keep hinting about looking forward to winter… it’s going to be loong and cold, so enjoy the summer while it lasts! it’s amazing! (Then again, I’m from ireland and it’s always cold there!) Apparently patty and bun have the best burgers in london, but I’m no expert…I intend on trying both at one point or another once I get the time. X

    This series has really made me remember the special things in life and make a note of things that make me happy even if it’s just the little things. You are an inspiration, Rosie xxx

    Have a lovely anniversary week-end in London, Rosie!
    Also wooo for finding your cardigan & fitting in to jeans! I found some autumn clothes today too that I forgot I had. I will be doing a huge wardrobe purge and giving lots to charity so I can refill it at some point with nice clothes…Anthropologie might be a start ;) Unfortunately my jeans from last winter are two sizes too small now. w.t.f.
    Sad sad day realising that!

    You should film Ted doing his double busy walk ;)

    Anthro in Guildford?! Oh dear, I think my bank account just started crying!!

    Happy anniversary! My 4 years is coming up soon too! Hurray for long-term relationships!

    Happy anniversary! Have a fantastic time in London. I haven’t heard of either of those burger places, but if you’re in the mood for ice-cream (or in this case gelato) then you must go to Scoop in Covent Garden!

    Also…I had no idea that Anthropologie had any stores in the UK! I love looking at their website, so many beautiful crochet items.

    Hope you have a fantastic time in London! Love finding clothes you thought you’d lost, I did that with a top this week :)

    Dark chocolate with sea salt caramel?! That sounds cracking! Twenty minute naps are the best, and woo hoo on the jeans- I put on my favourite pair straight from the wash today with no stress- that put me in a seriously good mood! xx

    Dark chocolate with sea salt caramel?! Sounds heavenly! Happy anniversary, and have a great time in London :) xx
