Backseat.

FINALLY my hubby has a new album out and obviously I’m loving it. It’s filled with that same cheeky, yet soulful husky vibe that I love so much about Kip Moore so I’m really excited about it. This song isn’t on the album so I thought it was deserving of its own ‘Sunday Soundtrack.’ Sidebar: I can’t believe it’s already Sunday again…

Enjoy! Happy Sunday.

Five Favourites Thursday: Nigeria.

It feels like forever ago since I landed back at Heathrow after spending two weeks in Nigeria not thinking about work or dissertations or anything – oh how I long for those two weeks again. Anyway, as it’s the last Thursday of the month, I thought I’d share five of my favourite snaps from the holiday.

These snaps really take my mind off all the work I still have to do, but at least this time next week I shall be dissertation free! Happy Thursday!

Gimme All Your Love.

It may be a bit late, but as promised I have another song that featured on an episode of Suits a while back. Powerful, raw and all consuming, this song is definitely worth a listen so make sure you check it out.

I just watched this week’s episode and I can’t believe the first half of the season is already coming close to an end :( oh wells… Good night!

Into The Wild.

Having been out of the country and out of even an ounce of Wi-Fi for the past couple of weeks, I’ve spent the last couple of days catching up on everything from TV shows (I’m still not entirely caught up) to music to celeb news to blogs etc. Anyway, during my Suits marathon the other night I stumbled across a few new songs that you’ll be hearing in the coming weeks. To start off I’m sharing Wrabel’s ‘Into The Wild’ which appeared in the beginning of episode six.

Who else is watching this new season? It’s been so great so far and I can’t wait for next week! Happy Sunday.

Five Favourites Thursday: Things I Didn’t Buy.

And so it’s the last Thursday of the month and I can’t help but look back on all the things I promised myself I would buy, only to realise that I didn’t even make it to check out.

LE SPECS

While I may not have managed to get these this month, I’m still holding out hope that I’ll finally purchase these cool shades next month…

        

LE SPECS

In all fairness, I’m not sure I was ever 100% certain these sunglasses were for me, but it was kind of like love at first sight (in the sense that the moment I saw them I wanted them, but then the moment I clicked on another item, I’d all but forgotten about them… sad times). I suppose they are pretty cool to look out though.

       

A NEW LAPTOP

Don’t even get me started. To be honest I think I’m in denial about needing a new laptop. I know that I need one, but I’m not in the right place to say goodbye to my beloved Kevin (yes he has a name and he’s very dear to my heart) – I even feel bad typing this on him as we speak… Maybe once I get this fan fixed Kevin can stop overheating and burning my leg.

SUPERGA

I’ve needed a new pair of Superga’s since I bought my last pair, and I’ve been meaning to buy another pair, but then life happened and I kept forgetting/ couldn’t be bothered to decide between a myriad of colour/texture/style options. Life is so tough is it not?

Mallorca: Essentials

LONGCHAMP

Similar to my Superga situation, I’ve needed a new Le Pliage since I bought my last bag. And similar to my Superga situation, I was faced with the same challenges that pretty much put a stop to me fulfilling my purchasing obligations. Oh well, on the plus side I’m fairly certain that by the year’s end I’ll have another bag so I guess it’s not exactly the end of the world huh.

Maybe next month I’ll be happy to report that I actually bought everything on this list? Lol! Happy Thursday.

The Truth About Life.

Seven truths we all need reminding of every once in a while…

No-one has all the answers; much of life is a total mystery.

No job is “just perfect” or ideal for you. They all have their boring and frustrating times.

There are no perfect people – everybody lets you down at times – for even the best people have their failings and weak points.

Much of life is humdrum, unexciting and mundane – but it has its times of happiness and joy as well.

Our emotions are fickle and can quickly change. Don’t expect to feel happy and contented all the time.

No matter how well you plan, you will still meet obstacles – but overcoming challenges develops character.

Uncertainty and change are a major part of life – but that adds to the intrigue, and stops things getting dull.

…now if only I could remember these.
