Weekly Love: Week 85

1. It has been a great two weeks for me in spite of the fact my Mac Book came into contact with a glass of red wine (thank god for my old one, even if it is driving me crazy!) and I got the flu. Thing started to get a bit festive in London before I left, and I got the most incredible piece of news I could possibly get regarding my plans for next year - hopefully I'll be able to tell you all about it in the New Year. After leaving London I headed back to my parents house and got to indulge in Christmassy things like decorating the tree, wrapping presents, dropping in to see my old school friends and planning the menu for a dinner party I'm throwing in the gulf between Boxing Day and New Years Eve.

Usually I do a lot of thinking about my blog when I shop alone, and this trip sparked my new Tumblr overhaul. While it used to be my place to collect pretty and inspiring photos, I now have Pinterest for that, so my Tumblr will now be like my mini diary - photos of things I have done and events that I have been to that don't quite make my blog for one reason or another!

3. It is no secret that I love my food blogs. One of my favourites (which I love almost as much as I love the accompanying podcasts) is Joy The Baker. She has an amazing new video introducing here and her blog. Watch it, and then get stuck in - you won't regret it!

4. Nominations are open until 31st December for the Marie Claire Blog Awards, I'd love you all forever if I could maybe get some nominations in the 'Best Fashion Blog' category? (I hate to ask, but it appears that asking is the only way to get anywhere in these things!)

    Have a wonderful Christmas Rachel! : )

    Elodie xx

  2. oh no! I hope your macbook gets better soon. That's the only thing that's putting me off getting one - the ridiculous charges to have it repaired!
    Hope all goes well for you in the new year : ) and MERRY CHRISTMAS

  3. I could have most likely had another Macbook or two with the amount the insurance has paid to repair the two I have had! And Merry Christmas and a Happy new Year to you too!

  4. Yay, I love your good news regarding next year!!
    And loving the pictures of the old Underground station!

  5. Too bad about the macbook and the flu :( Hope you're feeling better right now.
    Have a good Christmas! Sounds like you're gonna have a nice cosy one at home.
