Hello! I don't often post about lifestyle things or what I've been up to but Sundays are always a nice time to look back at the week and do little updates so I thought it would be nice to do one while I have the time this week. Apologies for the bad quality pictures in the collage, BlackBerry cameras are awful and I'm counting down the days til I can jump on the Instagram wagon (which is why I nabbed the first picture from my friend's Facebook!)...
So this week was one of my best friend's 21st birthdays, we all went out together on Friday night and I can't stop looking at the pictures of us on Facebook because in a few months we'll all be going our separate ways when uni finishes!
I also picked up two new books from a charity shop yesterday. I started reading Perks of Being a Wallflower last year and it took me months to read because I was so busy but now that I've finished it I want to get back into reading more! I got The Intimate Adventures of a London Call Girl by Belle de Jour and How to be Good by Nick Hornby. Started reading Adventures of a London Call Girl last night and WOW is it graphic. I had to stop reading it earlier because it was making me feel squeamish before I had dinner!
This week I also picked up L'Oreal Pastel Toning Conditioner from Boots for £5. I've always wanted to put pastel lilac shades in my hair and did a post about hair chalking recenty but that wasn't too successful as it frazzled my hair and only lasted a couple of hours so I'm going to use this to colour the ends.
Aaaand finally I got my 120 words per minute shorthand certificate this week! I was so pleased to achieve this as it means I am at industry level and have gone above the shorthand speed journalists are required to get. My day was also brightened today when my Mum sent me this picture of my Dad & I when I came home from uni for the weekend a couple of weeks ago. Here we are "working hard in the garden" and if you squint hard enough you can see my pet chickens in the background!
Hope you all had a lovely weekend! Remember to enter my giveaway to win a Benefit Porefessional. xo
