Five Things – Week 88

Xmas Biscuiteers Packaging

Five Things I Did This Week

  • On Tuesday evening I went out for my very first Indian meal. Yes, I managed to go my whole life without having proper Indian food but after having to eat it at my friend’s wedding I realized it wasn’t all that bad.
  • Wednesday evening saw me and my other half head into Hammersmith to see Ricky Gervais live and it was a pretty good show. I’ve always been a fan of him and it’s nice that I’ve never seen him.
  • On Friday we headed into Westfield to try and grab a few items of clothing for our holiday coming up and I managed to nab a few bits and pieces.
  • Saturday saw us head down to Brighton for a nice afternoon and then to see one of my favourite bands play at Concorde 2: Bury Tomorrow. Even though the day was really windy we had a lovely meal and the show was really good.
  • My weekend ended with a day of shopping and a meal with my nan. We always do an annual trip to the shops to buy me clothes for Christmas and she likes to go early so we had a chance to catch up and buy a few bits.

Five Great Things To Happen

  • With the Moz update, my blog has now grown to a DA of 36. Now I know numbers aren’t everything but I am so happy with this figure and I really want to grow my blog even more.
  • I’ve almost finished watching all 9 seasons of Ru Pauls Drag Race and I am completely obsessed. It’s such a great show and the people on there are so interesting. It’s definitely made me want to to go to a drag show.
  • I booked tickets to go to a Nightmare Before Christmas sing-a-long show a few days before Christmas and I am excited as it’s my favourite movie of all time.
  • I bought the most beautiful new Suede jacket/ coat from New Look in the sales and I am so happy with it. It’s perfect for this time of year too and it will be coming to Italy with me as well.
  • I had a good time at a marketing event and pushed myself to talk to some new people and engage as much as I could.

Five Things Which Sucked

  • I realized I can’t go to the Drag world Christmas show and I am a bit gutted as I’d have loved to watch some of the Queens’ having watched all of Ru Pauls Drag Race now.
  • After just finishing off all my gift guide photos I picked up another massive batch of deliveries from my nan’s and I am back to square one again, although I am so excited to showcase some amazing products.
  • When we went to Brighton on Saturday it was so windy that I just couldn’t enjoy the outdoors much as I couldn’t see much with my hair going into my face.
  • Choccywoccydoodah was completely booked up so I didn’t get to experience anything in the original store. I really should have thought about pre-booking but it didn’t even occur to me.
  • I only managed to do my fitness DVD 3 times as opposed to every day like I had wanted, but I’ve got to start somewhere.

Five Things To Do Next Week

  • Start packing for my holiday as I am going at the end of next week, eek
  • Plan a relax on Friday ahead of a very busy weekend across Comic-Con and a London day
  • Do my fitness DVD every day Monday – Friday to get myself in a good routine
  • Wrap the first batch of my Christmas presents. I don’t want to get back from holiday and be unprepared
  • Take photos of all of my gift guide products which have come through

    Haha I am so glad that I have found someone who is as obsessed with Ru Paul’s Drag race as I am! Isn’t it fab? Also I can’t believe you never had Indian before its my fave! If you are looking for Indian restaurants to try I highly recommend Dishoom and Needos!

    I can’t believe you got to this age without having an Indian – it was my staple after-pub food when I was in my teens and twenties! Congrats on the DA rise as well, well deserved 🙂

    I’m so jealous! I love Ricky Gervais (have since The Office) and the Nightmare Before Christmas is one of my favourite movies – a sing a long sounds so much fun.

    It sounds like you have been so busy, how sweet of your nan getting your Christmas clothes and having a shopping trip with her. I love Indian food, we go for an Indian’s every Christmas day and have done for years so my children have been eating it since they were little babies xx
