Weekly Love - Week 68

DSC_0006
+ Getting my hands on the 'Young Hollywood' issue of NYLON - best issue ever! Also, the new edition of Company. 


+ Watching 'An Education'. It was such an incredible film, that spoke to me in so many different ways. If you've never seen it, watch it.

+ This documentary filmed about Jazzabelle's Diary.

+ Getting sweet, lovely emails from readers. If you have a moment, send a quick tweet or email to your favourite blogger, let her know how much you love her blog and appreciate her posts, and make her day!

+ Carrot, seed and cream cheese muffins.

+ This week I reviewed Michael McIntyre's autobiography over at Judging Covers - I could not recommend it more!

+ Spending some of my birthday book vouchers on paperbacks I've been wanting to read to take on my two French trips this summer. First: One Day by David Nicholls, Room by Emma Donoghue and American Psycho by Brett Easton Ellis. I know, what a combination!

+ Buzznet interviews Taylor Momson about her style, her music and what she'd name her pet unicorn - I've actually started to really like her since I went to a Pretty Reckless gig last year...

+ My Mummy bringing me a bag full of juicy strawberries, grapes, bananas, chocolate and fresh bagels. I love her so much!

+ My GlossyBox arriving on Thursday!

+ Thanks for all of your wonderful suggestions for what do do about my really dry feet on my post about the Lush Fairtrade Foot Cream - I'm gradually working my way through them, and I'll let you know how I get on!

+ Listening to a lot of Blake Shelton.

+ Julliette talks about blogging platforms beyond Blogger. She also mentions me in this post - thank you!


What have you all been enjoying this week?

  1. This is such a sweet post. I particularly like the idea of sending an email to one's favourite blogger friend. That's such a kind thing to do.
    Your carrot seed cake looks so divine and delicious. Have a nice weekend.

  2. lots of links for me to have a look into. as for your dry feet, i think we should head to the fish spa in town and get one of those things where they nibble away dead skin. i had one last week and they are brilliant! xx

  5. @ Ella - I saw that it had opened on your blog - already booked to go with a friend, hopefully it will be an answer!

    @ prettylittlethingily - Actually, they were from the cafeteria. I asked about them last night and they donit make them, they get them in. Apparently they'll be getting more and there are also banana and toffee ones. But don;t worry, I'm going to eat many, many more and try and work out recipes for them!

  28. I loved 'An Education' can't believe I waited so long to watch it and brilliant choice of reading material. I enjoyed all those books in such different ways x

  29. I watched An Education too last year, and really liked it. As for Taylor Momsen, though: I have some serious doubts about her parents... Who lets his 16-year old daughter walk around in lingerie and that much make-up in public? Can't say anything about the music she makes, though, I've never bothered to listen to it.

    Thank you for the comment on my blog, btw!
