Pop tarts hot fudge sundae - I thought they only sold flavours this amazing in the US so let out an embarassing little whoop when I spotted these in a local shop
Had the most annoying sore throat / cough combo - this little lot didn't really help
I've been using my Clarisonic Plus - reviewing this on the blog soon, but sadly I don't think it's for me :(
Pancake day seems so long ago, could easily nosh this again right now, but of course I won't, it's only day 3 of my diet and even I can last longer than that
Pretty much my favourite nail colour combo for the last few weeks. Childish and I don't care.
Decided I wanted these shoes and was disappointed when they turned out to be much more green than the turquoise they appear online. Dorothy Perkins.
Got my GHD Air and didn't have to wait until my birthday as I won it for free on buyapowa. Getting a little worryingly addicted to that site actually. I'll be reviewing this pretty soon, heads-up - I love it.
More pre-diet scoffing - Nando's portabello mushroom and halloumi pitta rocks. Plus a wing or two on the side for good measure.
Bestie and I popped to Ikea to refund a broccoli with a face and shorts. You couldn't make this stuff up. 59p ice cream on the way out had to be done.
If you dislike toes you won't like this. I actually have a bit of a foot phobia myself, but I'm a lot better than I used to be. At school my friends would actually chase me to waft a toe in my face because they knew I'd freak out. Bitches. Anyway this was me shaking off the winter scales and getting my toes ready for flip flop weather - a little optimistic I know! The colour is Gosh Flamingo.
More pre-diet binging - the boyf made Sunday brunch, awww.
I only just discovered this and it's amazing. I love lemons / limes / anything sour and this is so so delish. I bet it's loads of syns on Slimming World though, so I won't be having it again any time soon :(
Starbucks mango and passionfruit booster thingie. Lush.
The most amazing buskers I've ever seen - a full on rock band! This was right near Charring Cross one night last week - it was a fairly mild evening and lots of people had stopped to watch and there was such a lovely atmosphere. Tramps were dancing and it was hilarious. A stranger started talking to me and I joked that one of the tramps was the band's manager and that he should talk to him if he wanted to book them - the (male) tramp saw me gesturing his way and yelled out "Yeah I'm a tramp, so what? And I'm a lesbian - I love women!" Everyone was laughing and for a minute you wouldn't have realised you were in central London where usually nobody speaks or has time to stop. Shame I had to go and catch my train.
The night before the diet began - Ed's Diner Bluewater - Baileys milkshake
And hot dog with chilli cheese fries. I felt ridiculously sick and had trouble dragging me and my massive food baby back to the car. My friends and I were singing along to Eternal Flame on the way home and changing some of the words to "food baby" - you kind of had to be there but it was so funny :)
Cocktails at the Slug and Lettuce
Can't remember why Zara was holding her nose, but it wasn't because I smelled. I smell nice, honest.
Zara has such a big mouth, you can't tell her your secrets
Grumpster Monday face
Spotting the eggs around London
Spotting eggs and meeting Secrets Behind the Clost Door Charli's lovely family
And finally, proof that your Nan was right when she said "you only get what you pay for". My £6 Primark shoe after two wears.
I hope everyone's having a lovely week and hello to all of my newer readers! Hi to the old ones too obviously, but I have acquired rather a lot of new readers over the last few weeks thanks to an ad I placed with Louise of Sprinkle of Glitter. If you're interested in getting your blog seen by a new audience, I'd thoroughly recommend it. For me it was just a one off thing, although I wouldn't rule out doing it again in the future.
I'm happy about my ad with Louise, because it's brought me some fab new readers who leave me lovely comments, plus I'm closer to my 1,000 followers giveaway (you're gonna like it I promise, it's something good!). The 1,000 is based on GFC, although these days people tend not to look at that solely. If I counted my bloglovin' I'd have over 1,000 anyway, but for now I'm going to be traditional and base it on GFC.
On the subject of GFC (google friend connect) there's been a lot of confusion about it being phased out. As far as I know, the widget will still appear on 'non-blogger' hosted blogs and you can still use it to follow them, but they won't pop up in your blogger dashboard reader. However if you use Google Reader - they still show up in there. That's what I've found to be the case with the blogs I follow anyway. My blog is a blogger blog, so no changes here, but if you are moving over to using Bloglovin' or Hello Cotton to follow blogs, I'm on both of those too :)
So onto new blogs to follow - I'm going to do something a bit different this time, and give you the links to the blogs of some of my newest followers. Enjoy!
