Weekly Love - Week 66

+ Getting dressed up for dinner. I took this photo following my friends to drinks. Left to right: Charlotte is wearing Whistles, Ally is wearing Topshop and Steph is wearing H&M.

+ Sunday morning  brunch that I did not have to cook or pay for!


+ Laughing my head off in H&M at the fact that even wearing some pretty substantial wedges the down the the floor maxi dresses are still taller than me!

+ Anyone who is at all a history geek will find these Next Top Model themed posts from What Would Anne Boleyn Do will find these bloody brilliant.

+ Rocking out to my special summer playlist.

+ The literary geek in me really wants to place an order from Out Of Print. It is going to take a lot of self restraint not to order this Bell Jar tee.

+ Kokopelli Blu's street in London had the most amazing street party, and she posted photos! Very jealous right now! I did not have as nearly as much fun at the fete I went to!

+ There is a new feature on the side bar of my blog - blog of the week! I can't wait to start showing some of my favourite bloggers some love up there!

+ Garance Dore talks about her Coachella experience - a very funny, very informative post!
+ My Golden Snitch necklace from Wallpaper Rose - so many people have stopped me to ask about it!

+ I wrote a guest post over at Where Are My Knees? about healthy drinking this week!

+ That happy feeling I had when I realized I have a Clinique High Impact Black mascara sample in my handbag when I thought I'd run out!

+ Something very exciting, and very top secret is going to be happening, hopefully by the end of June on my and a few of my wonderful blogger friends blogs. It's a secret, but I will be giving you a few clues on twitter and in these weekly love posts, if you want to try and guess in the comments! Clue no. 1: On Sunday, I put 'It's Sunday' in the subject line of a big group email I wrote.

+ This may be an article from a politics website, but it is essential reading for anyone who uses Twitter for self promotion. 

+ It now being warm enough to be able to slip into my bright pink Havaianas originals flip flops to just dash out for food or to cross campus.

+ Laura has written a beautiful piece about her blogging journey.

+ Watching the election results roll in.

+ Finally finding a tinted moisturizer that I can't feel on my face - Moisture Surge Tinted Moisturizer by Clinique!

+ Munching on my Mum's homemade chocolate chip cookies!

+ An American teen fakes a 6 month pregnancy for a school project and social experiment. Wow. (via Amy)
+ Sorting out my bad hair day with Lush's Jasmin and Henna Fluff Eaze.

+ Finding a shop in town that stocks Mountain Dew. it does not taste the same as the American original (not nearly enough sugar!) but it will do to sustain the habit I have developed (for now!)

+ This week I reviewed Between Shades Of Grey by Ruta Sepetys on the Guardian Childrens Books website - a must read for anyone of any age, not just young adults!

+ Dry Special K (the fruit one) in a bowl and eaten as nibbles.

+ I really want the new Mulberry book!

+ Really getting into country music. 'Need You Now' by Lady Antebellum is one of my favourite albums right now, and since checking him out when I had no idea who he was on The Voice I'm really liking Blake Shelton too (but I'll always be #teamadam!) Sugarland are good too!

+ Taking life lessons from song lyrics. I'm turning into Amy Claire Thompson.

+ A photo of an amazing florescent pink bird. I want one as a pet.

+ Helping other people out with their blogs.

+ Ron Weasley's email inbox. Priceless.


What have you been enjoying this week?
