Weekly Love - Week 62

+ I had an incredible birthday on Monday, thank you to everyone who helped to make it so special!

+ Listening to Lady Antebellum. This is starting to become a reoccurring theme... 

+ Andy has written us a DIY guide how to make a fantastic leather oversized clutch - most certainly on my to do list once exams are over and I'm back at home with my sewing machine!

+ I have extended my Spring Giveaway to the 12th of April, because I won't have time to announce the winner before I leave for America. If you have not already, don't forget to enter!

This week I reviewed Cameron on Cameron: Interviews With Dylan Jones for Judging Covers!

+ The preview for the final Harry Potter film has come out - I'm both very excited and very sad at the same time. I know I turned 18 this week, but Harry Potter was such a big, defining part of my childhood I think when I walk out of the last film I will be in floods of tears because I think I'll feel like my childhood is really over!

+ Speaking of Harry Potter, Pilgrims Proverb now stocks literary inspired jewellery! Make sure you check out the Harry Potter inspired star string bracelets and The Secret Garden inspired key pendant necklaces!

+ Planning nights out with my friends.

+ Gala Darling has written a fantastic little guide to Paris!

Kaushal gives us a preview of the new Benefit skincare range - I'm SO excited! Check back on Monday for my advanced review of the exfoliator!

IFB introduces us to the newest tool in social media analysis: Klout

+ Going to Cafe Rouge, and as well as having a fantastic dinner, finally finding somewhere within walking distance that does really good Moules Mariniere!

+ I'm now an Eyeko Ambassador, so if you want a free gift with any order over £15 enter the code E14972 at the checkout!

+ We've been having a stupid amount of sun this week, and this makes me very happy! The sunglasses have actually come out!

+ I can't wait to do myself a newsprint manicure!

+ Wagamama Takeaway.

+ Kendra Spears looks absolutely stunning in this photo shoot.

What have you all been enjoying this week?

  7. I'm glad you had an amazing birthday Rachel ! ♥

  8. Totally agree on Harry Potter - I feel like I grew up with him, and while I'm ready to say goodbye to the Hogwarts gang now, they'll always be such an important part of my childhod.

  9. Damn I missed your birthday, belated birthday wishes!! xx

  10. Happy belated birthday! This is my first time visiting your blog and I love it. I too will be crying at the end of the last HP film. I don't want it to be over! Because then the magic I grew up with will feel dead :(

  11. I've just found your blog, it's great. The newsprint nails are gorgeous! I saw them on another blog but with no link to the tutorial, thank you so much for that. The Secret Garden key necklace is so sweet, it has absolutely the right look and reminds me of the film. Can't believe it's the end of the Harry Potters already.
