What better way to kick off the month of June than with June babies (and two of my favourite people), Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, who are featuring in the CFDA Journal.

Five Favourites Thursday: May 2015.

If you ask me, this month has been so long but so short. It feels as though so much has happened, but then at the same time it feel as though nothing has really gone on.

MY NEW PHONE

I got it last month but I haven’t been able to use it until a week ago. My whole experience, through frustrating as hell, reminded me that if you want something done, by god do you have to do it yourself!

NEWS-HUB

My post on the finale episode of Being Mary Jane made it to the top of the TV and film category on The-NewsHub.com which I’m really happy about! Thank you if you read it, and if not, you can check it out here. I haven’t written for the site in a little while so I need to kick my butt into gear and start writing.

MY STARTER CAR

No I haven’t bought a car yet, BUT I have found the perfect starter car. Looks like I’d better get to saving.

NEW JEANS

I couldn’t ask for a better, more comfy pair of jeans. Right now I’m deciding on whether or not I should buy these again or if I should get the dark grey version.

Blue Jeans

NAILS

I don’t know if it’s the way I applied it, or a change to their polish formula, but Barry M’s ‘Nightshade’ has not chipped AT ALL. I repeat – NOT AT ALL. I’ve been wearing it for close to two weeks now and it still look as good as new. I didn’t expect to love this colour so much, but now I can’t get enough of it.

Nightshade

I can’t wait to see what June will offer. Happy Thursday.

Summer Morning Walks.

Is it the summer? I want to say yes on account of the nice weather we’ve been having, but then I want to say no on account of the weather we’ve been having… Anyway, yesterday morning instead of going to for a run (which I was so sure I’d do), I went on a leisurely stroll (in my pjs) with my sister around our neighbourhood and enjoyed the tranquil atmosphere.

It’s not a bad way to spend the day off, and certainly makes a difference to staying in the office all day huh?

Blue Jeans.

Saturday was really such a beautiful day. With highs of up to 19 degrees it was the perfect opportunity to crack open my new jeans and take them out for a whirl. It’s been a really long time since I’ve owned jeans that were so blue, but these are just phenomenal and I’m already thinking of buying another pair.

The only thing that would have really completed this look would have been the pair of Boca shades I was talking about on Friday. Don’t you think?

Five Favourites Thursday: April 2015.

My oh my has April been a crazy month or what? I feel like I found my mojo and zest for life again, following a wobbly February. April has definitely been my best month so far this year, not that I’ve done anything particularly exciting, but it has been good.

FRIENDS

April seems to have been the month of catching up with old friends. A couple of weeks ago I met up with two of my oldest friends and it was the best most physically exhausting (if you laughed as much as we did, you’d feel EXACTLY the same) night I’d had in a long time! Even though we hadn’t seen each other for a really long time, it felt as though no time had passed, and we were back to misbehaving like when we were in primary school. Then earlier this week I met up with Beth and Lauran and we had a fun day traipsing around the Natural History and Science Museums.

GREY’S CATCH-UP

Don’t confuse this for me enjoying the latest episode because I really didn’t! Though the latest episode was good in terms of Derek narrating, I found the whole thing to be quite sloppy. But anyway enough about that, let’s talk about the epic Grey’s marathon I had a few weekends ago. It was AMAZING (!!!) and it reminded me why Grey’s Anatomy is my favourite show in the whole wide world (sorry Scandal). It was an emotional roller-coaster that had me screaming at my screen until the early hours of the morning, but it was so worth it. one last thing that I’ll add though; I’m not sure who these writers are trying to kid but Owen and Amelia are not fooling anybody – they are the least believable couple on the planet.

AVENGERS

Last night I went to see the new Avengers movie with two of my oldest friends and it was so much fun! It’s definitely worth a watch, and I think I’ll be going to see it again soon.

NEWS HUB

As well as blogging, writing essays and working part time (because I’m not busy enough lol) I’m now writing for news site, The News Hub. I’ve only written two posts, but I’ll try to write one a week, so please make sure you check that out.

ESSAYS

You wouldn’t believe that writing 3×4000 word essays would be remotely enjoyable, but believe you me, it really has. Obviously there are times when I’ve struggled and stalled, but overall the whole experience has been amazing and I have loved researching and discovering all sorts of things. Through writing my essays, I also feel like I’ve discovered new parts of me, as I find myself siding with some arguments and not others. I know that I won’t, but I think I’m going to miss writing essays when I’m finished with this masters come September.

If April is anything to go by, I know May will be just as fun! Happy Thursday!

Summer Neutrals.

Between writing three four-thousand word essays and going to work, it’s a wonder I have time to go out for a leisurely stroll and enjoy the beautiful weather we’ve been having here in London. Last week temperatures rose to 25° which called for slinky shorts and sheer fabrics to keep me cool.

I hope the weather stays this nice so I can dress like this every day.
