Weekly Love - Week 67

+ Sitting in the garden, studying in the sunshine with a couscous and falafel salad for Sunday lunch.

+ I've added some more items to my blog store (including goodies from Lush and Benefit), and I've moved it to a new and easier to shop page!

+ I have an idea for doing an exciting little blog project, so I'd really appreciate if any bloggers based in Los Angeles who want to get involved could drop me a quick email

+ This weeks blog of the week: Meredith Noelle!

+ Introducing Amy to Blake Shelton. Apparently I know know more about country music than she does. This fact scares me somewhat...

+ I had a particularly yummy Graze box this week (click here to try one for free!) with Pina Colada (dried mango, pineapple and coconut), pitted greek green halkidiki olives with basil & garlic, Korean chilli rice crackers and Billionaire's Shortbread (belgian milk chocolate, almonds, cranberries and fudge)!
+ Writing motivational phrases on my arms to get me through a bad week.

+ The coaches from NBC's The Voice performing 'Crazy' together at the beginning of the show. Christina, Blake and Cee Lo are all great, but how amazing is Adam Levine?!

+ Making summer plans. 

+ Rocking out to The Pretty Reckless. I love the poster I got at their gig. I could not find one when I went to see Maroon 5, so I have just got one off of eBay!

+ There is a Sims meme Tumblr. My life is complete.

+ Alcoholic Ginger Beer. Best summer drink ever.

+ If you use the code E14972 at the checkout and spend over £15 at Eyeko, you can get a free London Lips Lipgloss, and if you make your purchase on or after the 16th you will get a free pot of their tinted cream for a golden glow!

+ Becoming increasingly addicted to Fashionlista while waiting for Blogger to start working again.

+ Hayley has posted a brilliant sugar scrub recipe for your lips I'm going to try when I run out of my Lush Sweet Lips sugar scrub!

+ Hellcats. Marti & Julian. That is all.

+ I've reviewed Ruler of the World by Alex Rutherford over at Judging Covers!

+ Listening to country music. What on earth is happening to me?!

+ I need a box of Great Gatsby matches in my life.

+ An epic group Twitter conversation with Zoe, Meriel, Tristan & Lucy - sorry to all my followers for the spam on Thursday night! Its what happens when I'm driven mad by the lack of Blogger!
