Christmas 2015...

I felt so much more prepared for Christmas this year, last year it was so rushed as we had just moved in and even though it was good, I felt like this year was really special. We were just so happy all day and it's so soppy but it really was perfect. I really wanted to do a full post on it even though i didn't get many pictures. I know I'll want to read this back one day. Anyway, George woke me at 7 on Christmas day but there was no way I was getting up that early, we had both struggled to sleep and I could have slept all morning but we got up just after 8 and opened our presents. I was so spoilt by George, im so lucky to get everything that I got because I wasn't expecting it and im so grateful, it shows he actually listens to me as there were a few things i'd mentioned ages ago and even i'd forgotten about them. I'm going to do a separate post on what I got (not bragging, I just personally like to see what others got ) over the next few days. I do think I did pretty well with Georges presents too, especially the Star Wars things as he's really into it at the moment.

After we'd opened our presents, we had croissants for breakfast which were amazing and I started prepping all the food for christmas dinner. The Santa Clause films were on TV too so we watched them and then put White Christmas on. I know how much George loves the film so I bought it him on DVD so now we can watch it every year on christmas day. 
We both bought each other new slippers and pyjamas, so comfy. 
I wanted to take a picture of christmas dinner as it was so good but we were just enjoying it too much, I followed a Jamie Oliver recipe for the roast potatoes and veg and I know it will be one I follow every year now, honestly so good. I spent hours on christmas eve watching Jamie Oliver programs and Nigella as George was working and I had time off and I wanted to make sure everything was as good as possible. Overall it was a really lovely day, we fell asleep on the settee after watching a film, drank quite a bit of Prosecco and started to get through all the chocolate we got for each other and from other people. I already can't wait for next christmas.

December Favourites - Beauty, Music and Christmas!

Just like that Christmas is over! I'm so sad about it but I hope you all had a lovely few days. My first post back after Christmas is my December favourites and this month there are some music, beauty, homeware bits, and a few other things featured!
Primark Tartan Bedding - We bought this while we were in Manchester as we wanted a nice christmas bedding set and I loved this one straight away. I don't know why but I seem to have this growing obsession with tartan things, first it started with pyjamas I saw and then bought from Primark, then we got the bedding and now i'm seeing even more things I want! It's a really cosy bedding set and you can't go wrong at Primark for homeware things like this, it was £18 for a double one which I think is pretty good.

Seventeen Contour Palette - I bought this when we went to Manchester as I had ran out of my bronzer and I hadn't had a new one in ages, I always got the same thing. I bought quite a lot of makeup on the first night as Boots had 3 for 2 on and I had ran out of a lot of stuff. I have been wanting to try a contour kit for ages but I just didn't know which one, I had heard good things about this from Seventeen though and it was only £5.99 which I thought was a really good price. You get a darker shade to contour with and a light shade to highlight with. I've noticed such a difference over the last month or so since I've started using this. It actually does give me some definition and cheekbones! I really recommend it if you're looking to try contouring, I definitely don't go mad with it but even a little bit does the job. 

Justin Bieber Purpose CD - I think over the last few months everyone has become a Justin Bieber fan. I really didn't want to but some of the songs on his new album are just too good. My favourite is Love Yourself. 

Love Actually - This has been one of my favourite christmas films for so long but this year I seem to have watched it so much more than before, ITV2 are playing it quite a lot at the moment and we have the DVD, it makes me so emotional no matter how many times I watch it. I know its one of those films that you could watch all year round I suppose but its definitely one thats more for christmas so I look forward to watching it every year. 

Christmas Nails - I'm definitely one of those people that goes for brighter colours for my nails during summer and darker shades during winter, especially the darker reds and purples, last week I used a red shade by OPI and a glitter red by H&M that I've had for years as I wanted nice christmassy nails and I love it. It's the perfect combination and its lasted really well, I can't even remember when I got the one from H&M but it must have been ages ago and I hardly ever use it, its not one of those glitter nail polishes that takes forever to take off either!

Obviously the main favourite this month has been christmas, im so sad its all over but im going to do some more posts over the next few days showing what I got etc. for now im just trying to get excited for my birthday next week.

Weekend Summary #15 - Making Mince Pies and Pizza Hut with the Boys...

I actually can't believe christmas is on Friday, its so close but it feels like the run up to it has just gone so fast and its almost over. It's literally my favourite time of the year and I really don't want it to go yet. The thought of having to take down all of the decorations makes me want to cry. And once Christmas is over, its almost my birthday, i'll be 21 but I already feel about 30. I'm not really looking forward to it, I just want christmas to go on for weeks and weeks. 

We finally got the final few bits a few weeks ago so its so nice and cosy. We have all the presents around the tree now (which were put there after I took the picture), we've got a new frame for the wall (not just for christmas) which I really love, I've wanted something like it for ages but couldn't find the perfect one and we've got our christmas candles from Homesense which i'm going to have to light at some point but they're just so pretty. I did light them for a picture but I couldn't bare for them to just get ruined so I blew them out straight after!
This weekend we had the boys over and we swapped presents and we opened ours from them. I just find it so hard to wait until christmas day when someone gives us presents early! We watched so many films this weekend, we watched The Grinch as I've never seen it, its so strange, I don't know whether I liked it not. We also watched Love Actually which is just my favourite and there were some non christmas films too, Lets Be Cops, Inbetweeners 2 and Cloverfield I think. We went out to Pizza Hut on Saturday and had so much food. Me and George shared a pizza but ended up taking most of it home, I struggled with one slice, the boys had their own, we had starters and desserts too so we were all so full that night. But we did make mince pies, I just wanted to make them as I never had before and Alfie really wanted too and he actually likes them, unfortunately George still wouldn't try one. They were so so simple to make so i'll definitely be making them again next year. On Sunday we saw some family at ours and then had a very chilled night once the boys had gone. We watched Love Actually again as it was on TV but I could watch it over and over again.
So this will probably be my last post now before Christmas! I hope you all have a wonderful few days and get everything you hoped for! I'm so excited but just don't want it to be over!

My 3 Favourite Christmas Films!

We've been watching christmas films since mid October I think as I just get so excited so early! I could watch them earlier than that to be honest but I think once October stars, its a reasonable time to start watching them all! I start my christmas shopping and everything!

One of my favourite things to do is to get cosy in winter, light some candles and then settle down with a nice christmas film, here are a few of my favourites!
Source 1, Source 2, Source 3

1. Elf

 I don't think there is a film that will ever beat Elf for me. I could watch it all year round but I don't because I love the excitement of it been shown on TV again around this time of year, you really know christmas is on the way then. I have loved this film since it first came out years ago and I know its one i'll still watch when I have kids and I hope they'll love it as much as I do! It just makes me laugh every time, it never gets old no matter how many times I've seen it. Will Ferrell is the best in this and its my favourite film of his. 

2. Love Actually

 Another one that is just perfect for this time of year, everyone's all loved up or spending time with their families or travelling home for christmas and this film is about all of those things. It's a really lovely film and it always makes me a bit emotional. I love Hugh Grant in it too, so gorgeous!

3. The Holiday 

This is one that I usually really enjoy but I have to be in the mood for it. Sometimes it gets played so much on ITV2! I love Jude Law though and I love the story, really different to any other christmas films we've got and I love the little cottage. So homely and cosy, I would love a little house like that one day.

What are your favourite christmas films?

Weekend Summary #14 - Yummy Pasta Bake Recipe and Breakfast in Bed!

I took a bit of a break from blogging last week and to be honest there hasn't really been anything to blog about. I don't know where my motivation for it has gone but I really hope it comes back. I still want to do posts like this so I can look back on them though.

The last few weeks I have literally just been counting down to christmas, the flat is so cosy now we have the tree up and we have our christmassy tartan bedding and christmas candles, I don't want it to be over. On Saturday night I made a pasta bake using Heck Chicken Italia Sausages, they are actually amazing. I wanted to try something new as we're getting a bit bored of the usual meals and I saw the Heck range online and thought they looked really nice. They were even better than I expected and it was so easy to make. I grilled the sausages for about half an hour and while they were cooking I did some pasta and started making a sauce. For the sauce I used a tin of chopped tomatoes, some oxo, salt and pepper, I don't think there was anything else, and I let it simmer and thicken up. When everything was done I cut the sausages up into small chunks and mixed into the pasta and the sauce and then baked in the oven, with loads of cheese on so it went all crispy! On Sunday we had a chilled day and started it off with breakfast in bed. Well it was meant to be breakfast in bed but George set it out on the coffee table instead, still very nice. It all tasted so good and it was a really nice thing to wake up too. Later on in the day we watched a christmas film, I chose The Greatest Store in the World which I always struggle to find anywhere, we found it on Youtube and I just love it. I don't know why but it's one of my favourites. Along with Elf obviously. 
On Sunday night I also started reading Sali Hughes Pretty Honest, George got it me for christmas last year but I've just never got round to reading it and within a few pages I was hooked. She knows so much about skincare, makeup, hair, everything, I feel like she told me off though because it made me realise how bad I am at looking after my skin and everything, I'm determined to invest in a good cleanser set after christmas and properly start looking after it.

Have you been up to much?

Food I Have Been Loving This Week #5

It's been so long since I last did one of these! But I am back with a few new favourites..
1. Terrys Chocolate Orange Minis - I have an unhealthy addiction to these, I just want them all the time! I've already asked George if he can get me just loads of packs of these for christmas because they're amazing and I think you can only get them around this time of year. I love it when it starts getting to Autumn and Winter time because thats when all the christmas chocolate comes out and its my favourite. 

2. Bacon Topped Turkey - We've had this a few times and its so easy to make and tastes really good. We just get a pack of two turkey steaks from Asda, I always feel really good when I've eaten turkey as its supposed to be so good for you, not that we have it that often to make any sort of difference! We just do it in the pan with fry-light and while it is cooking we grill some bacon,fat cut off. When both are done, we put the turkey on the grill, top with the cooked bacon and add a slice or two of cheese on top, back under the grill for 5 minutes or so until the cheese is melted and gooey. We normally have this with some golden rice, but last time we had it with new potatoes, I did loads by accident and in my defence, they were all chopped up so thats why it looks like there is loads on the picture, I also had a salad with it too. This meal would be completely free on Slimming World if you count the cheese as your healthy extra and as we're trying to get back into it at the moment, it's a great meal to start with as it feels like a real treat. 

3. All the vegetables! - I don't know why but for the last week or so I've just been craving vegetables. This never happens! When I do a roast I literally pile my plate with peas, green beans, cauliflower and broccoli and carrots, so nice. I love having loads of vegetables with a roast and I feel full for ages afterwards. 

4. Giovanni Rana Simply Italian Tortellini - This is such a quick and simple meal and great for when we are both just too tired to cook after work. We've been having it loads recently with a homemade tomato sauce which I make with just a tin of chopped tomatoes, salt and pepper, a bit of tomato puree and an oxo and I sometimes add some spinach in too if we have any. Our favourite one is the Spinach and Ricotta and I really like the bolognese one too!

5. Caramel Freddos - These are so great for taking to work when you just need a little bit of chocolate, I normally want something like this in the afternoon! They are only 5 syns on slimming world and are one of my favourites.

Weekend Summary #13 - Putting Up The Christmas Tree!

This week we went both went back to work after our week off and trip to Manchester, it was hard. As much as we both enjoy work and George is loving his new job, it was still hard to go back and get back into the usual routine. I hate getting up so early! An exciting thing that did happen this week though is that we got our christmas tree! The last few years we have just had a tiny one as we lived in Leicester for a year so there was definitely not room for a proper tree in a student flat and last year we moved into our new flat a few weeks before christmas so we didn't get chance to get a new one. We picked one up from Matalan and I love it so much now its all decorated! We put it up on Thursday but I had to include it in this post. It was nice to relax on Friday after work with the christmas tree lights on, it looks so pretty. Most of the decorations are from Primark, we got a big pack for £5 a while ago and I picked a few extras up when we were in Manchester, the angel wings are my favourite and they're right at the top. I know it's not even December yet but everyone seems to have got into it all so early this year and I just love christmas so I couldn't wait any longer!
We had an amazing tea on Friday night, we got steak and George cooked them perfectly, I should have taken a picture but I just wanted to eat it straight away. I didn't get chance to buy much on Black Friday as payday for me is at the end of the month, I did find that I still had some money left on an Asos voucher though so I ordered a present for George, I've already bought loads for him for christmas so i'm saving it for his birthday in January, it's so difficult for us both because my birthday is only like a week after christmas and Georges is at the end of January so we both have to try and think of even more present ideas! We did find a good deal on a TV though actually with the black Friday deals on so we just decided to go for it, probably shouldn't have but we did need a new one for the bedroom as the one we did have was one we brought with us when we move out and we haven't had chance to get one until now. I love it!

On Saturday we had the longest lie in and we had breakfast in bed which was really really nice, we watched a few episodes of Catastrophe on the laptop and then George went to Meadowhall to pick up a few bits from M and S and the TV for the bedroom. I then made a Slimming World Chinese, I did a pork stir fry and made my own egg fried rice and we watched X Factor and then some more Harry Potter, we're a bit obsessed at the moment, we're just going through them all! Sunday was very much the same, we got some presents sorted and I made a roast, I also tried making some gluten free brownies as I had a pack which we got free a while ago and I only needed to add a few ingredients, they were actually really nice!
Did you do much this weekend?

Manchester - What We Bought!

If you saw my last post you'll know we went to Manchester recently for the Christmas Markets and a bit of Christmas shopping. I really wanted to do a full post on what we bought as the other one would have just been too long otherwise!

So, on the first night after we had been to the Christmas Market we went to the Arndale Centre, which is amazing by the way, I thought it wouldn't be as good as The Trafford Centre in Manchester but to be honest I really like it, there are still loads and loads of shops and I think The Trafford Centre is so big that its just impossible to get around! The Arndale is only a five, ten minute walk from our hotel too! 

The first shop we went in was Boots and I was so spoilt, I had been needing some new makeup for a while and George said just pick what you want, it was three for two so I picked up a few things. I got my usual foundation Rimmel Lasting Finish Foundation, I got it in the shade Ivory this time as I think its just a better shade for my skin especially in the winter, I also got the Wake Me Up Concealer which I am loving after only using it a few times! The last thing I got from Rimmel was a Kate Moss Lipstick from the Nude Collection in the shade 42. I had been wanting to try one of these for ages! I also got another lipstick from Boots which was a Barry M one in the shade 168. I have been putting a little bit of both of these on my lips on top of my lipliner, it just makes the perfect colour for my lips, I love it. Also from Barry M I got the Hi Shine Gelly Nail Polish in Sugar Apple, which is a gorgeous mint green colour. The last thing I got was the Seventeen Define and Contour Kit. I had ran out of bronzer and wanted to try a proper contour kit so I could hopefully try and give myself some definition and it works! I am actually in love with this. We then went to Boots and picked up a few bath bombs to use that night as we had been walking so much! We got Stardust and Golden Wonder. They were both so nice and Golden Wonder made the water go a really pretty blue with gold stars in!
We picked up some Christmas Decorations while we were away, we went a bit christmas mad, we got things for the flat and also got most peoples presents sorted, we had so much to carry home! We went to Homesense which is actually the best shop ever, I had never been in one before, I just knew it was basically like TK Maxx which we went in afterwards, they had so many christmas decorations and candles, seriously the amount of candles they had, we were spoilt for choice! I picked up this red christmas tree candle for £3.99 I think, I don't even want to light it, I just want it to look pretty on the shelves! I also got another candle, a while pillar candle which has reindeer's and trees on in gold glitter, so pretty. This was £4.99 I think. The last thing I saw was this gold metal christmas tree, all of these things are already up in the living room, I love them! The gold metal ornament was £4.99 too. What I loved about Homesense was that it was all great prices and they're all discounted so all of these things were worth more than we got them for. I just wanted to buy everything. 
We went into Primark and bought so much stuff but I haven't photographed it all as theirs just too much. We got some Checked Christmas Bedding which I can't wait to put on, some Sweet Vanilla and Coconut Linen Spray, I had never seen this before but it smells so good, I've been spraying it on the bedding, clothes, everything. I also got some fluffy socks for £2, everyone loves fluffy socks, George got a christmas jumper which actually really suits him! and we got a few decorations for the tree. I love the angel wings, I think they are my favourite, they were £1.50 and the stag was also £1.50. The Candy Canes were actually from Clas Ohlson and I thought they would match all the other decorations well. 

We bought so much stuff while we were away, a lot of it being presents so I'm not going to put those on, we got some really nice presents from the Market which are so unique, I love all the different stalls selling little gifts as you're not going to find them anywhere else! Aswell as all of these things we also bought loads of food! We went for meals, we had christmas drinks, we bought stuff from the market, it was so nice.

We definitely want to do the Manchester Christmas Market again next year, I don't want there to be a year that goes by where we don't go because I just love it there and I want it to be our little tradition. I think we're going to go to London too next year like we did this year, this year we only went for a few days so next year we want to go for 4 or 5 days, there's so much to do there. We were planning on a big holiday next year but I think we're just going to do a few little weekends away like we did this year as we just have so much to save for at the moment and I like going on a few little holidays in the year, there's always something to look forward to then.

Christmas Trip to Manchester...

On Monday we went to Manchester for 2 nights, just like we did last year, I think its something we'll do every year as a little tradition. Last year we went for the first time to go to the christmas market which is just amazing to see and we got engaged! and since then I've been wanting to make it a thing for us to do every November, luckily we both got the time off work and managed to book a few nights away in the same hotel, I had been looking forward to it for months and months and i'm so sad that we're back now. Last year it was all just a whirlwind and I don't think I got to take it all in so this time we made sure we visited the market a few times and saw everything it had to offer. 
We bought a few presents for people, they had some really cute things and I love that the things they have you probably wont find anywhere else. We also tried so much food, the doughnut pretzels are sugary amazingness. It all looks so pretty at night when the lights are on and the big Santa is lit up, I just love it, I feel so happy there and it just went so fast! 
When we weren't at the market we were doing all of our Christmas shopping at the Arndale Centre which is way bigger than I thought it was, my feet were dead by the end of the few days. We decided to get as many peoples presents as we could while we were there so we could just get each others and any other little bits when we were back, we did treat ourselves though and bought more than we planned too, we didn't really think that we needed to get it all home! We bought some christmas bedding which I love, its a tartan one which I think is so perfect for winter, its so cosy! There was more too but I'm going to do a separate post on that. We went to Slug and Lettuce on the first night for a meal, the mains weren't great but the starters were good! On the second day we had Pizza Hut, stuffed crust really is my life, and we also had a nice break in Costa. George tried one of the new christmas drinks, I think it was a gingerbread latte, I actually really like it aswell and I normally hate things like that. I just love christmas and we had to try one of the christmas drinks while we were there!

This week off has just gone so fast, its been really nice to have time off together and go away for a few days, I just wish we were back there! Hopefully we'll be going back next year!

November Favourites - Snow Fairy, Garnier & Primark Pyjamas!

I'm not sure if its too early to post this as we're only half way through the month but i'm going to anyway. This month there has actually been quite a lot I've been loving so I thought I would do a proper monthly favourites as normally I just wait and do a favourites post every few months as sometimes its hard to find things each every few weeks!
Lush Snow Fairy - I am so glad that all of the christmas products are back out at Lush! It's my favourite time of year and I just want to buy everything when it gets to the christmas range. I still had a small bottle of Snow Fairy unopened from last year so I have been using that and I seriously just fall in love with it more and more every year. It smells so sweet and just fills the whole room and I can smell it for ages afterwards! I definitely need to stock up on it this year, as well as all the amazing bath bombs which come out at christmas. 

Garnier Ultimate Blends Marvellous Transformer Shampoo and Conditioner - I love this shampoo and conditioner, it makes my hair feel so good! It just smells amazing and my hair just feels so clean after using it, I know your hair should after using any shampoo but the one I was using before this was just making it even more greasy and it just felt horrible most of the time. These ones are for dull hair and my hair is very dull at the moment, it just looks the same all the time and it needs livening up a little bit, this shampoo and conditioner are really helping and I can't recommend it enough. 

Primark Pyjamas - Primark is just the best for pyjamas, I bought myself some fluffy Winnie the Pooh ones a few weeks ago which are going to be perfect for christmas and a few weeks ago I bought some new bottoms and a loose vest and they are just so comfortable. The pyjama bottoms are cuffed ones and a really soft material and the vest says #letssleep and its a really nice loose one so perfect for sleeping in and even though they don't match, it doesn't matter, they're pyjamas and I just love the ones from Primark, after buying these I also went back and bought some red checked ones, they are so soft and they just look so christmassy!

Little Mix 'Get Weird' - I don't think I have ever bought a Little Mix album but after listening to a few of the songs on this album I might have to get it, some of them are just so catchy! My absolute favourite is Secret Love Song, I also love Hair and Grown. What do you think to this album?

One Direction Made in the AM - I loved One Directions last album so I wasn't sure if this one would be as good, overall I think their last one is my favourite but there are some amazing songs on their new one. I'm still so sad their going on a break, is it really a break? cos i think its a full on split. Anyway, my favourite songs which I have been playing over and over from this album are,  AM, Temporary Fix, Infinity, Perfect and Olivia. Have you heard the new album?

Another favourite of mine has obviously been going away for a few days with George to Manchester, like last year, it was just as good as last year and we went to the Christmas Market a few times over the 3 days so it felt like we really got the most out of it, and we did so much christmas shopping! I'll do a proper post over the next few days but I had to aad it onto this one!

Weekend Summary #12 - Date Night and Taking a Break...

Last weekend we had the boys to stop which as always was so much fun. It's so weird that we have our own place and that they can actually stop over for a few days every month, it's mad how grown up we feel and how quick it all seems to have happened, it doesn't seem like its been 4 and a half years since we first got together!

On Saturday we decided to go a Paradise Island, a mini golf place as we've been before with them and they really enjoyed it, I actually don't think it matters what we do, its just always nice to spend time together and have a laugh. There are two different courses at Paradise Island, we've been before and I mentioned it in Weekend Summary #3 if you want to have a read, so this time we went for the other course. When we got back I made Spaghetti for tea which was actually so good, I really went off it for a long time but I know the boys like it so I made it and all of us loved it, I was so happy with myself as it was the best I've made and I always worry that people wont like my cooking! We also watched Harry Potter, of course I ended up falling asleep! and we bought loadsss of sweets and chocolate to have with the film, we don't see them often so when we do we like to treat them.
Normally I have a long weekend as I work Tuesday-Friday but this week I worked on Monday instead of Friday (today) so this week I have been so tired as I've been out of my usual routine and I never really noticed until now the difference that extra day off at the weekend makes! Even though we've both been really busy this week and so tired, we went out for a meal on Wednesday, we went to Pizza Hut, I have serious love for cheese stuffed crust omg. It was just amazing and nice to go out on a date night, the cookie dough too was just insane.
As we haven't had time this week, I really want to get on top of the tidying this weekend and get sorted for next week as we're off to Manchester and I can't wait! On Sunday it will be a year since we went for the first time and saw the christmas market which I had been wanting to go to for ages! I won't bore you all over again but these are the posts from last year - I'm Engaged!, Manchester Christmas Market and The Trafford Centre, Lush, Superdrug and Selfridges Haul!.I'm so excited to go again and just have a few days away together, it always feels so special and especially now im working I think we'll appreciate the time off together even more.

I'm posting this today as I won't be doing a weekend post next week, we wont be doing much apart from tidying and packing and I just want to enjoy the start of our week off together, i'll be back doing posts over the next few weeks and i'm sure they'll be a few about Manchester but I just want to take a little break, I haven't posted for a week because I haven't had anything I wanted to talk about and I don't want to force myself to blog and to be honest I just don't have the time now, i'm definitely not stopping blogging because I do love it but I really don't focus on followers or stats anymore, I just want to blog when I have something worth mentioning and when I can really dedicate some time to it.

Quick and Easy Recipe - Covered Chicken and 5 Grain Rice

I love cooking and try to do it as much as possible but since starting my job it has been so much easier to just go for convenience foods or to pick something up on the way home. We still cook just not every night like we used to and its been getting me down a bit lately.
I was going through a some recipes a few weeks ago and found a really simple one by Jamie Oliver. It's literally chicken coated in parma ham baked in the oven. He added some cheese in the middle and different seasonings and things like that but I just kept it basic. I cut any bad bits of the chicken then seasoned a little with salt and pepper, wrapped each chicken breast in parma ham then placed in a dish which I had sprayed with frylight. I baked it in the oven for around 40 minutes, checking and turning it about half way through. 

I already want to make this again, it was so simple and easy to make and it honestly tasted so good. It's already on the meal plan for next week! I made a salad just consisting of some iceberg lettuce, cucumber, plum tomatoes and red onion (my fave). We also wanted to try some of the new Uncle Bens Rice Pouches which have been advertised a lot recently, we picked up the 5 Whole Grains one which has wholegrain rice, wild rice, barley, millet and red quinoa. I know its more expensive to buy pouches like this but its so much easier and it was really nice.

Have you got any quick and easy meal ideas that I could do when I get in from work? I'm really stuck for inspiration at the moment!

I know this probably isn't worthy of a blog post and is a bit of a random one but I was actually really proud of it and it was the nicest meal in ages!

Weekend Summary #11 - Meadowhall and a Harry Potter Day!

This weekend was a really fun one, on Saturday we went shopping for a few bits, George was looking for some new work clothes, he started a new job on Monday and im so proud of him! He also looks really good in smart clothes, it makes a change to his old uniform that he absolutely hated. We've known for a while about his new job but I didn't want to mention it on my blog until it was definite and he had started but now I can finally say! Anyway, as well as work clothes for George, I wanted to get a few things too as its getting really cold now. I went to New Look and got some new skinny jeans, i cant find a link for them now but they're so comfy and I can't wait to wear them with my boots, I also got this grey longline top which is really flattering and so comfy and I got a zip side jumper which goes really well with my leather jacket and boots. I definitely need a few more things for winter but we're going to Manchester in a few weeks so I think i'll pick some more up then. The last thing I got from New Look was a perfume which is actually a present for one of our friends, we still have a few more things to get them but I thought she would really like this and it smells so good, I should have got one for myself!
I did get some new pyjamas from Primark too, I love buying new pyjamas and Primark just had loads to choose from, I got some cuffed blue pyjama bottoms which were £6 and a loose vest which was £3.50. I don't want to take them off! The last few things we got were from Superdrug, I got the Garnier Ultimate Blends Marvellous Transformer Shampoo and Conditioner which smell amazing. I used them a few days ago for the first time and I know im going to love it, my hair already feels better than it did before. And we went to Harvester for a meal, but they've changed the menu! So it was nowhere near as good as it has been before which is disappointing. On Sunday we had a film day, well a Harry Potter day, we only managed to watch 3 of them but there is so many and they are so long so we'll have to have another one in a few weeks! It was a really nice chilled Sunday which is exactly what we wanted the day before George started his new job, it gave us chance to get everything sorted and spend some time together, I also made a Lasagne for tea which was really nice, we hadn't had it in ages!

I'm so excited for the next few weeks, George is going to be on much better shifts now so we'll actually get to see each other a bit more, next weekend his brothers are stopping, I'm not sure what we'll be doing yet but we always have fun and then in a few weeks we're going to Manchester for a few days! I can't even explain how excited I am but i'll talk about that a bit more in a few weeks time as this post is long enough!

A Cosy Movie Night In - Film Haul, Candles & Food!

Me and George both love a good movie night and we like to go all out when we do. We recently had one and George went shopping first to pick up a few films and essentials, I had no idea what he was getting and he did very well so I wanted to blog about it.

He picked up a selection of films as we had no idea what we wanted to watch, he got Cuban Fury, Maleficent, The Breakfast Club and Into The Woods. I think they were buy one get one free or something like that at HMV. They're all quite different which is nice, from comedy to disney and more. He also went to Primark and picked me up a new candle, in Pink Grapefruit, it smells so good! Also isn't the packaging so pretty? I love having candles lit in the evening, especially when we want to get cosy and settle down for the night. I didn't know he was getting anything like this so it was a very nice surprise. 
Then for treats because is it a movie night without them? I don't think so. He picked up my favourites, Dairy Milk Puddles and Caramel Nibbles. He also got a muffin for me from the best place ever in Meadowhall and he got himself a Krispy Kreme, baked goods are life.
Something else I think is essential for a movie night is cosy pyjamas and a nice glass of wine! I'm not normally too bothered about wine but George picked a really nice one recently and it's definitely one we'll get again. I also love my new cosy pyjamas from Primark! It was the ultimate movie night in, so lovely!

What are your essentials for a movie night?

Weekend Summary #10 - Girl Problems and Lots of Cooking!

I finally start getting over my cold and then I get my period, sorry if its TMI but its real life and it happens and I hate it. I just had the worst stomach pains so there has been lots of hot bubble baths, chocolate and hot water bottles.

On Friday night I actually had a nice night in by myself as George went out for the night with some friends, at first I didn't know what to do with myself but I really enjoyed having a few hours to just chill and do what I want (not that I can't when hes in but you know what I mean). I had the nicest M&S Pizza, ran myself a bath, did some blogging and watched Gogglebox and ended up falling asleep before he got in. When George has the full weekend off work, I feel like we should take advantage of it and get out somewhere but when your not feeling great, there's nothing better than just having a relaxed weekend in. 

Saturday and Sunday were basically identical days, catching up on shows we've missed, cooking and not doing much else. Have you been watching You, Me and The Apocalpyse? We're loving it at the moment! I never expected the twist in the first episode but I wont say what it was in case you haven't seen it yet, I can't wait to see what happens to all the characters over the next few episodes as there seems to be loads going on. On Saturday night I made a risotto which I haven't made in ages, it so simple and it was so nice. I really should have taken a picture, I just used 150g of risotto rice, 1 pint of chicken stock, I started off with 500ml but ended up needing more than that, salt and pepper to season and I also cooked some chicken fillets then broke them up into chunks and added that when it was done. At the end I fried off some chorizo too which was a really nice and crispy!

On Sunday we made a Shepherds Pie, its normally just me doing the cooking but we did it together and it was really nice, George is actually alright at cooking ;) We literally got the potatoes chopped and into a pan to boil, started the mince in the pan then added big chunks of red onion, George likes the flavour of onion but doesn't like it when there's little bits so I thought if I just chopped it up into big pieces we would get the flavour but it was easy to take out before adding stock, I added about 500ml of beef stock then a bit of tomato puree to thicken it up. Salt and Pepper to season and then once it was all done, into a dish and then cheese on top to go all crispy! We served it with veg and a few Yorkshire puddings, we excelled ourselves, I want to eat it again now!
All the food this weekend was just delicious and definitely what I needed!

Did you do much this weekend?

Recent Favourites - A Little Bit of Everything!

It's been a while since I last did a favourites post and there's been quite a few things I've been loving recently so I thought now was a good time!
I have to start with my most recent favourite, it's the new song by Adele - Hello. When I first heard it I wasn't sure but after the second listen, I was obsessed. It's been stuck in my head ever since! I can't wait to hear the rest of the album! Another song I have been loving is the new one by One Direction - Perfect, I just love any new music from them, and over the last few months I've got a real crush for Harry Styles, I never used to understand the fuss about him but now he is looking amazing! I'm actually really sad about them 'going on a break' I haven't seen them live yet! A few others songs are Wasn't Expecting That by Jamie Lawson, the video just kills me. And I really like On My Mind from Ellie Goulding. What music are you loving at the moment?

A few TV favourites have been The Apprentice and Geordie Shore. I didn't watch The Apprentice last year and I don't think I have done for a while for some reason but I really wanted to watch it this year. It's been so good! I think one of the men should win this year, I don't like any of the women so far! I was so happy Geordie Shore started again last week, it's just so funny and I think every series gets better and better. I look forward to it every week.

Over the last few weeks I have been loving getting my cosy clothes on, I love Autumn and Winter and it means I don't have to worry as much about what to wear as I just want to be warm! I have been wearing my favourite boots from Next that I got in London earlier on in the year, they do hurt my feet after a while but they're so great for the cold weather and I've been wearing them everyday to work.

A few beauty favourites have been my new purchases from Barry M. I mentioned in this post. I got their Gelly Nail Polish in Dragon Fruit and Plum. Dragon Fruit is definitely more of a colour for summer as its a pastel pink but I love it and think it adds a nice bit of colour! And Plum is just a gorgeous dark purple, great for autumn and winter! I managed to get a free Barry M mascara when I got both of these from Superdrug too which was a bonus!

There haven't been many food favourites but I had to mention Mini Heroes! I love this time of year when all of the christmas chocolate comes out and they have all the big tubs and bags of heroes, roses, quality street etc. We've already gone through quite a lot of mini heroes, I love the mini twirls!

Maybelline Colour Sensational Lip-liner..

I'm always a bit stuck when it comes to lipsticks, glosses and pencils. I just find it hard to know what suits me and i'm a bit scared of experimenting and I also don't want to spend money on things I might not like. I normally always know what I like when it comes to foundation, mascara, bronzer etc. but I have little ideas when it comes to my lips. 

I love the Rimmel Lasting Finish Colour Rush Balm in 'Touch of Mauve' and I think that sort of dark toned pink really suits me. I hate to say it but its one of those 'your lips but better'. The only thing I don't like about it is that it isn't matte and it is a bit glossy. I think matte products look better on my lips than glossy, im not sure why, I just don't like it. I have a few other lipsticks and glosses but none that I really love so I picked up the Maybelline Colour Sensational Lip Liner.
I've never used a liner before on my lips and im not using it to literally line the edges of my lips and then cover with something else. I use a technique I saw on the Pixiwoo youtube channel where you do line your lips then get a lip brush and blend it in all over your lips and it leaves a subtle colour without having to pencil it all on and it looking a bit too much! 

The colour I got was Intense Pink which is actually a really similar colour to the Touch of Mauve Balm, the reason I went for it was I didn't want to stray too much and wanted something that wasn't too different. Maybe soon i'll brave it and pick it up in a few different shades and see what they look like! I love how subtle the colour is and it stays on for a few hours which I think is really good for a lip pencil. Its nice and creamy, definitely not drying on the lips but not glossy either so the perfect one for me. 

I can see myself using this loads and I definitely want to pick a few more up when I get paid! 

What's your favourite lip product? Have you tried any of the Colour Sensational Lip Liners?

Weekend Summary #9 - The Worst Cold!

I literally have the worst cold at the moment. It started Thursday and I just knew it wasn't going to go away, its Sunday when im writing this and I've spent the day sneezing and coughing and generally feeling like death warmed up. You don't realise how much you appreciate breathing until you have a blocked nose. When I have a blocked nose I turn into a monster, I feel so bad for George because i'm just a nightmare when im ill or in any sort of pain, god knows how i'll cope when I have children. 

We really needed a food shop so on Saturday we went to Asda and spent more money than we intended too. We bought loads of treats, im sure its a rule when you have a sore throat and feel like actual crap, you can eat what you want. We got Ben and Jerrys, Mini Heroes, Pizza, just everything. When we got in I had a long, hot bath and then later on we watched Gone Girl. We'd both been wanting to watch it for ages but we bought the book first and wanted to read that first. George started it a few days ago and has finished it already. I knew it was probably going to be quite complicated so I thought I'd watch the film before reading the book. Oh My God, I don't even know what to say about the film, so weird! It was really good and there were lots of twists and I had no idea how it was going to end. But that said I hated the ending! I don't want to give anything away but seriously she's a psycho and deserved way more than she got. 
On Sunday I made a roast, I was determined to make something nice even though I don't have much taste at the moment! Sausages, Roast Potatoes, Stuffing, Yorkshire Puddings and lots of vegetables! It was amazing, I could actually eat a roast everyday!

What did you get up to this weekend?

Christmas Decoration Wishlist...

Last christmas we had only been in our flat for a few weeks so we didn't have many decorations and it was all a bit rushed, this year I really want to go all out, get a really good tree and some pretty decorations for the whole flat. I want it to be a proper cosy home this winter. As always Next have some amazing things in, last year I was lusting over all their Christmas stock and this year im exactly the same but I intend to actually get some of it this time! Matalan also have some great things and I've found something I love from Not On The High Street. 

The first thing we need is a tree, for the last few years we've just had a really tiny one as in Leicester we were in the tiniest flat and even now the flat is quite small and we don't have loads of room. I really want to get something similar to this Slim Emerald Tree from Next, I like the look of the slimmer trees and I think it would fit better in our living room. I also like the look of this Set of Copper and Black Baubles for £6. In our living room we have a lot of coppers, golds and reds so I think this colour would go really well. I love that a few of them are a rose gold colour too as I love that at the moment. The last thing I saw on Next was this Lit Wood Star, I would love this above the settee in the room, it would be so cosy having this on at night with candles while the tree is up!

A few things I saw on Matalan was the Christmas Botanical Diffuser and the Christmas Pot Pourri. I love Reed Diffusers, is that weird? I just think they look really pretty and they make a room smell amazing. I really like the look of this one from Matalan, so pretty and festive and I also love having pot pourri in the living room. I feel like its a really old fashioned thing to have but I've always liked it and since I got some last christmas I really want to get some more this year, I love the smell of christmas! The last thing I found on Not On The High Street was this Personalised Heart Map Decoration. I really like the thought of getting an usual or different bauble each year to put on the tree and I know this wouldn't necessarily 'go' with the other decorations but I think it would be really nice, as we lived in Leicester for a while, we've both been missing it quite a lot lately, I think it would be nice to get this in the location of Leicester and maybe get one from other places that are special to us. I don't know, I think its quite different and a nice idea for one year. 
Are you planning for christmas yet?

Weekend Summary #8 - Christmas Shopping!

This weekend was really really nice. I don't know what it was that made it so good but it was just generally a really good few days, Friday started off well as I got an early finish, I did have to do an IT test for my apprenticeship though but I think it went okay, was still home an hour or so earlier than normal though!

We had a lovely Friday night with Georges sister and brothers and the boys stayed the weekend. We also had the best Morrisons pizza on Friday too! I could eat it again now. On Saturday we decided to go to our favourite Ed's Diner, I honestly feel like it looks like we go every few weeks but we really don't, it's just so nice! The boys went for chicken burgers and cheesy fries, I went for the slick dog which is a hot dog with barbecue sauce and cheese sauce and George had a pulled pork burger I think, also we shared wet fries which just get better very time! Obviously we had to get dessert, the boys both had a sundae and we shared cheesecake. We then went looking for some Christmas decorations and Primark had loads. We picked up a big pack of gold, red and copper (I think) baubles for £5. I thought they'd match the living room and I also picked up some lights too. Just need to get some tinsel and that's the tree sorted! Oh and we need to buy a tree soon. I'm so excited! I honestly can't wait to buy people's presents next month, I've already thought of a few things for people. Are you getting sorted for Christmas yet? When we got in we played the beanboozled challenge which was disgusting but so funny, I of course got the sick jelly bean as my first one! And we watched The Woman in Black, I didn't like it and I'm normally okay with scary films! Oh and I made Pasta Bake!
Sunday was just a relaxed day, the boys all went on the Xbox and I spent some time blogging. When the boys went I got started on tea, chicken wrapped in parma ham with 5 whole grain rice, salad and some new potatoes. I'm going to do a post on this because it's become a new favourite,  I can't get enough of it.

I hope you had a lovely weekend, what did you get up to?

Style Crush - Selena Gomez..

It has been ages since I've done one of these posts! I was on the Next Blogger Network a few days ago and saw this one for Selena Gomez and had to write about it, I love her outfit!
Next have come up with their own version of the outfit and you can shop it all on their website! I absolutely love the Gestuz Sandra Black Pleated Skirt. I don't know if I could ever, ever wear something like this but I can dream, it looks so pretty and flowy and so perfect for summer, not that we had much of one this year. It has an elasticated waist so should be very comfortable to wear and it looks like a really flattering shape. A top that would go well with this and very similar to Selenas is this Envelope Neck Sweater in Grey. Tops like this are so comfortable and are great to wear with anything. It can go with a fancy skirt like the Pleated One or you could just wear it with some jeans and a jacket, a great basic to have. The last thing is the shoes, Next have got a pair of Two Strap Wedges which are basically identical to the ones Selena is wearing. I would probably never think to look for something like this but I think they look really nice and they actually look quite comfortable! I love how she has chosen things that you might not necessarily think to put together but it just works and how good that Next have so similar items! 

Let me know if you choose to recreate this look!

Weekend Summary #6 and #7 - Payday Shopping!

I hope these posts don't get boring for people as i'm aware I really don't do much exciting and the last few weeks I just haven't felt great. So I thought I would combine last weeks and this weeks, last week I had the worst period pains, why do they exist! So we had a movie day which definitely made me feel a little better!

We watched Man Up which we've been wanting to see for ages and seriously it was just the best film. Simon Pegg is so funny and I loved the story, I can't wait to get it on DVD, I really recommend it if you want a good film to watch on a Saturday night. We also watched a new film with Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart, it was okay, I suppose what I expected, I don't think I would rush to watch it again but it was funny. Apart from that I literally did nothing which was actually quite nice.
The weekend just gone George was off on Friday so I met him after work and we went to Meadowhall as I had been paid a few days before, payday is just the best. I have been wanting some new cosy pyjamas for ages as its really getting cold now and I saw the perfect ones on Instagram a few days ago and I had to get them! They're Winnie the Pooh which is just my absolute favourite, I already have a Winnie Onesie but I still needed these, they were £13 and you get the cosy pyjama bottoms and long sleeved top and some fluffy socks too. I love them. I also picked up my Superdrug order, Barry M have an offer on at the moment, spend £7 on their products and get a free Showgirl Mascara, I really need some nail polish and theirs is my favourite so I thought I would go for it and get the offer. I got the nail polish in the colour Plum which I think is going to be a new favourite of mine, so perfect for winter, and I got Dragon Fruit which is a really nice pink and I don't have many like that. I've used the Mascara once so far but it seems really good and I'm looking forward to using it again to see how it compares to my Rimmel Endless Mascara, I might do a full review in a few weeks. As I am such an amazing fiance, I also bought George Fifa 16 which I know has been out for a few weeks and he really wanted it, I expect a pretty good present when he gets paid now ;) When we got in I relaxed with a glass of wine which has a really weird name but its really nice, while George cooked tea.
This post is long enough so I think i'll leave it there but we really didn't do much else, just spent some time together and had a really nice weekend, we also watched loads of Doctor Foster as we had it recorded, how amazing is it! So tense and I can't wait to see how it ends on Wednesday. Have you been watching it? Next week should be a bit more exciting as we have Georges brothers to stay and i'm sure we'll be taking them somewhere fun!

Work Update...

It's been a while since I first told you all I had a new job so I thought it was time for a little update. There isn't too much to say but i'm still trying to find the the right routine with blogging while now working as it can take up so much time. I work 4 days a week so that does give me a long weekend to get my blogging done but when the weekend is here, it goes so fast and I find I've not written one post and I don't even know how that happens. I occasionally have days where I just write and write and get loads done but other days I just want to lay in bed and do nothing. I'm quite proud of myself as for most weeks since I started ive been able to stay in the routine of three posts a week on Monday, Wednesday and Friday but recently I have fallen out of it. I write posts then forget I need to take blog pictures, edit them and schedule tweets too, there is a lot more too it than just writing something and unless you're a blogger yourself you won't know how time consuming it can be. I just don't have the time when I get in from work, I get home and I literally just want to go to bed! Set days don't really seem to be working for me at the moment so for now im thinking I might still try and post 3 times a week but maybe not on the same days every week, so if I want to post on Monday, Wednesday and Friday one week and I can then I will but if I'm struggling for time or find that I write a really good post one day and want to publish it straight away then I can. At the moment I'm thinking that might be easiest, maybe twice throughout the week then one at the weekend? I think I need to go back to how I was at the beginning with it, do it because I enjoy it, not necessarily because of stats and followers but its hard not to think people are going to stop reading if you're not posting regularly or on set days.

Anyway, with this being my first job it has taken a while to get used to the early mornings and been away from the flat and George for so long but i'm sure it's the same for anyone who's started a new job, you have to get into a completely new routine. Generally i'm really enjoying work, if you don't know what I actually do i'm a receptionist/admin assistant and I really like it. It's the perfect amount of hours for me, I get to interact with new people everyday and there's a nice mix between being on reception and being in the offices doing general admin. I like both so I don't mind what i'm doing. I've done full days by myself on reception and it was so scary at first but now I feel so much more confident. I feel like i'm actually a proper receptionist, it sounds silly but I feel like I know what i'm doing now and each week i'm finding that i'm asking for help less and less. The other woman I work with on reception went away for a few weeks so for a while I was on reception by myself, starting up and locking up, dealing with most things by myself, I've done this before but shes normally around somewhere so it was a bit weird but I think I did really well, I enjoyed it more than I thought I would, I was nervous for the first day or so but I feel like I got into it after that and it was much better than I thought. I feel really proud for actually getting through it and not making mistakes or doing anything wrong!

I think thats all there is to say really, it's just a great job for me. Exactly what I wanted and I can't see myself working anywhere else at the moment!

Autumn Bucket List...

I've never done one of these before but I saw a similar post on someones blog last week and I really liked the idea. I love autumn, I've been waiting for it for ages and I've been pinning pictures of autumn and winter on Pinterest for months!

There are a few things I definitely want to do this Autumn so I thought I would do a little bucket list and maybe come back to it later on in the year to see what I actually managed to do! 
All images taken from Pinterest.
  • Carve a pumpkin - I can't remember ever doing this and me and George definitely haven't together so I think it would be a really nice thing to do this year.
  • Decorate the flat - I want to make the living room so cosy for autumn this year, I want to buy new blankets and a cosy rug and I want candles everywhere! I would also love to put some halloween decorations up to as I love seeing it all in the shops and I really want to go all out with everything this year. 
  • Buy autumn and winter clothes - I wear the same sort of things all the time just because I need simple and comfy clothes for work but I'm getting a bit bored and I know how cold its going to be on reception over the next few months as people are always going in and out the door and it is freezing! I want to stock up on some cosy jumpers and fluffy socks and maybe get some new boots and a jacket so I really am prepared for autumn and winter. I could also really do with some new things for when we go to Manchester in November as I know it will be so cold then. 
  • Buy Autumn Scented Candles - I don't really have any season specific type candles but I love it when Yankee Candle have their Fireside Treats one, and they've got one out now called Witches Brew which is a halloween one and I had a look it at a few weeks ago in the shop and it smells amazing, so different to any others I've got and just perfect for this time of year. 
  • Start Christmas Shopping - I'm so excited to start getting presents for people, I wanted to start a few weeks ago but I stopped myself, when we go to Manchester in November I want to get as many as we can then, the christmas market has some really unique things so I want to get some stuff from there and they do amazing chocolate and sweets! I'm hoping to get as much as I can then and when we get back hopefully we will only need to get a few extra things and then I can start on Georges presents!
What are you looking forward to this Autumn?
