on the blog in place of those Sunday Currently ones which, quite frankly, I
found hard to update due to its restrictive time frame. It still serves the same purpose, but now I’ll have more freedom to post all the random happy things whenever I can!
I went to Bicester Village for purchases I’m justifying as “work essentials”. Shopping stresses me out so I only go when I really need something. Five hours in the village was more than plenty of time for retail therapy but what I actually enjoyed most was observing the shopping demographic and retail trends.
Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream, Magic Foundation and Vintage Vamp eye palette.
A heap load of marketing briefs for the new job. I feel like I’ve been reading way too much serious stuff lately though – can someone recommend a decent quick, fun read?
Schedules and goals on my new Passion Planner from D. I’m really keen to keep this pen-and-paper writing thing going on.
I thought Star Wars: The Force Awakens was… not as great as the previous films. There. I’ve said it. Only because I really hoped for a more action and darkness! But I thoroughly enjoyed seeing Adam Driver (aka Adam from HBO’s Girls, aka best douchebag on TV) in one of the greatest film franchises, and Daisy Ridler is so adorbs.
I’ve just seen The Danish Girl over the weekend which was rather intense and emotional. What a life it must have been for Lili Elbe and Gerda Wegener, I can only imagine the struggle they both went through individually and as a couple. That said, Eddie Redmayne is one hell of an actor – and a pretty one at that!
I’m also working my way through the first season of The Originals and the second season of American Horror Story. I’m not a huge fan of all things supernatural but there’s something quite compelling about these series that I’m enjoying.
1) To pass probation with flying colours. I find the new job challenging but I’m liking my colleagues as everyone’s very helpful!
2) To remember that weight lifting doesn’t involve lifting food from plate to mouth.
3) To buy a decent cookbook and actually use it, ie master five recipes by the end of this year.
