Weekly Love - Week 78

+ This photo is of ice creams in St Malo. It is also my way of letting you all know that I'm off to my house in France this afternoon for a week where I have no internet - so any posts that you read this week will be scheduled, and hopefully I'll have one or two more new French Photo Diaries to show you when I get back!

+ Nylon interviews Leighton Meester. I love Nylon, and I love Leighton Meester. 

+ Shopping for uni stuff.

+ Homemade pizza and French skinny fries. 

+ Cold Mexican paella. Because the coconut milk in my cocktail on A Level celebration night made me sick, I took my paella away with me. Stored in the fridge, its given me a couple of very taste snack meals!

+ Having the most amazing group of friends.

+ Katie's Alice In Wonderland cupcakes are both very incredible and very adorable!

+ Writing all my favourite things I like to cook that are student friendly into one big book - compiling my very own student cookbook!

+ I need something from this store in my life...

+ Ellie shares some pretty amazing cocktail recipes!

+ Catching up on the 3rd season of True Blood - so happy it seems to be following the plot of the 4th Southern Vampire mystery book!

+ Vivianna has written a first time fresher uni advice post that every girl off to uni for the first time in September MUST read!

+ Buying kitchen stuff and crockery for uni - a novelty for me!
+ Chardonnay Wine Therapy moisturiser from my Boudoir Prive box - I'm totally in love with the wine smell, and it works really well too!

+ I NEED to make this chalk board DIY...

+ Packing for holiday evenings in my nice and quiet French house: The West Wing Season 1, The Good Wife Season 1 and The Sims 3!

+ Style tip: knot your scarves at the bottom to add a little detail to your look!

+ Listening to the Joy The Baker podcast.

+ Katie has a recipe for Rose Creams - I actually love her for this!

+ The Lying Game - a new ABC show based on the book by Sara Shepherd, the same woman who wrote the Pretty Little Liars books - I love it!

+ Speaking of posts on starting uni, I've been using Sarah's list I saved form last year on what to pack - and she's just reposted it on her new blog!

+ Finding the people who will be living in my flat at uni on Facebook and getting to know them.

+ Why am I not in London till mid September? I want to go boating on the green lake on the roof of Selfridges. I'm not even kidding...

+ Fresh orange juice and homemade banana bread for breakfast.
