Five Things – Week 04

Every time I write up one of these posts I can’t believe that yet another week has gone by. How are we half way through February already?! Also if you’re reading on the day this is published Happy Valentines/ Galentines day! It’s been another busy week like every other with a few London trips for gigs/ catch ups/ food and a viewing of another film in the Marvel Collection. Welcome to my week.

Five Things I Did This Week

  • I saw Deadpool on Wednesday evening and it was such a great movie. I won’t go into it in too much detail as you can read more in my post here. But even if you’re not a massive Marvel geek it’s a great movie to watch.
  • On Friday night I went to Brixton Academy to catch Bury Tomorrow play alongside Parkway Drive and the show was amazing. I caught up with some friends before the show and had dinner which was nice.
  • I celebrated Chinese New Year with a great meal in Chinatown on Saturday and it was really good. I even pushed the boat out and tried some bits I don’t usually eat.
  • Me and some friends discovered a new cocktail bar near Leicester Square called The Experimental Cocktail Bar where the cocktails were a bit odd including mushrooms, tomatoes, egg whites, tea and other things in them. It was an interesting place but probably not one I’d pop to again for drinks.
  • Valentines Day started with a lovely brunch in Bill’s with one of my friends and a nice late morning catch up. Their scones are one of my favourite things.

Five Great Things To Happen

  • Seeing as it was payday for me I ordered the Morphe Taupe Eyeshadow Palette which I have been lusting over for ages. I was so impressed when it got delivered later that week because the colours are so pretty.
  • I had my delivery of Certaslim products which I will be trialling for two weeks to see how they aid my weight loss and I am super excited to give the products a try.
  • I actually managed to schedule three posts for my blog. Now this may not seem like much but I always have loads of blogs written but I struggle with taking batches of photos, but this week I smashed a load out which meant I had less to do during the week *yay*
  • I got my pass confirmed to go and see Sleeping with Sirens in Birmingham next month where I get to help my friend celebrate her birthday with cocktails and good music.
  • I discovered an amazing new desert place in Piccadilly Circus which I need to go back to again. I had some of the most amazing chocolate cake I’ve had in ages there so I will definitely be going back.

Five Things Which Sucked This Week

  • For pretty much all of Monday my legs were super sore after so much walking over the weekend in Edinburgh and they were really uncomfortable.
  • I set my alarm to go to the gym on Wednesday morning and I failed miserably at getting up in order to go. One day I will get my body clock on more normal level so I don’t struggle so much in the morning.
  • As expected the guy I went on a date with last week never bothered to message me again. This seems like a running theme with me and dates and sometimes makes me wonder whether to bother any more. Clearly I’m super scary/ undesirable in person 🙁
  • Good Charlotte and Against The Current played in London on Thursday while supporting All Time Low and I wasn’t there 🙁 ATC have a show coming up soon so here’s hoping Good Charlotte also announce one!
  • I didn’t manage to have a lie in all weekend because I had to be up pretty early both days, I’m looking forward to next weekend when I can sleep in without setting an alarm.

Five Things I Want To Do Next Week

  • Start my Certaslim diet. I was lucky enough to be sent two weeks worth of products for this fantastic new slimming tool so I am super excited to get started on this tomorrow.
  • Try out the Vegcafe in Brixton before going to see my favourite band play in Brixton: Bring Me The Horizon.
  • Do a big clean of my flat over the weekend. Other than an afternoon being hopeless at archery with my dad on Saturday I have a rare free weekend so I want to do a massive spring clean of my flat and do all the fun things like clean bathrooms and my oven.
  • Have a bath. This may sound like an odd thing but I got a tattoo done recently so haven’t been able to indulge in a relaxing bath, but I am hoping by the weekend they should be heeled enough so that I can have one.
  • Have lost at least 2-3lb at Slimming World this week. Because i’ll be following my Certaslim plan I am hoping to see some good results from it.
What have you been up to this week?

    I honestly don't know where this year is going, but I am sure that I say that every year!
    Bills is one of my favourite restaurants, as their veggie selection is really good.

    You've certainly crammed a lot into one week, my husband and son are off to see Deadpool this week. The cocktail bar doesn't sound very nice, but the chocolate cake sounds much better. Don't worry about the guy not texting, he obviously wasn't a keeper!

    Deadpool does sound like fun, not sure if I like Ryan Reynolds or not though. Sorry about your date, hope you go on a date with someone nice soon – you deserve it.

    What a full packed week you have had. As for the guy that never messaged you again just think he can't be that nice and worth the trouble.
