Five Things – Week 105

Five Things – Week 105

Five Things I Did Last Week

  • On Monday I headed over to my Nan’s and had a nice catch up with her which is always nice as I am very close with my family and love spending time with them.
  • On Thursday I was meant to go out for a meal with my family but my nan was ill so me and Luke decided to still go out and we had a lovely meal in Bills. I had a cocktail and ate two course of cheese fulled goodness.
  • On Saturday morning I headed over to my hairdressers house for her to colour and cut my hair in advance of my holiday and I am so happy with the colour.
  • On Saturday afternoon I headed in town to do a little bit of shopping and get my nails done. I opted for a blush pinky rose gold colour and I am so happy with how they turned out.
  • On Sunday I went out for a pre-Mothers Day meal with my parents and Luke as we’re away next weekend for the actual day.

Five Great Things To Happen

  • We have booked our tickets for Slam Dunk Festival in London and I am so excited about the late May Bank Holiday as it’s always one of my highlights of the year.
  • I’ve discovered a new series on Amazon Prime which I am loving called ‘The Bold Type’ and it follows three girls who all work for a magazine in New York and I watched the whole season in a week and I am in love with it.
  • I officially signed the contract for my new job and I am so excited to be moving forward to a new position with a great company.
  • Luke sorted out a light to go around my mirror by my Alex drawers and I absolutely love how it looks and how good it is for me to do my make up in this area as opposed to having to go into the bathroom.
  • I was going to buy some Glossier goodies in New York but to save on weight in the suitcase (and because I stumbled across a 20% off code) I made my order ahead of my trip.

Five Things Which Sucked

  • The snow was just annoying. The walkways are that bit too icy to walk comfortably and the roads are proving a little tricky sometimes.
  • There have been loads of server issues with the music website that I run so it has made proofing articles and doing our social media that bit trickier.
  • The floors in my flat are an absolute mess after all the snow with muddy prints on them and I keep cleaning them and they get dirty again. I just hate cleaning haha
  • Due to the weather my car service which was cancelled and I couldn’t get it rescheduled for another five weeks.
  • At Slimming World I put on half a pound, although considering how much I ate I shouldn’t really be sad about it.

Five Things To Do This Week

  • Finish packing for New York ahead of Thursday when we head over to Gatwick Airport.
  • Have a bit of a clean of the flat before going away so it’s in a nice state when I come back. There’s nothing worse than coming back from holiday to a messy house.
  • Make sure all social media and posts are scheduled for the week that I am back from holiday so I don’t need to stress.
  • Get up really early on Thursday in the hope that I can tire myself out and have an early night when we’re at Gatwick.
  • Download Jessica Jones ready to start watching on the plane on Friday.
What have you been up to this week?

    Oh wow congratulations on the new job! That’s great news and very exciting! Shame you gained a little weight but it’s not very much at all, I can gain a few pounds in a day!

    I have that Estee Lauder foundation and I love it. It stays put all day. My only gripe is I really don’t know what I’m putting on my face. And whilst this is a process I want to cut down on my chemical intake where I can. Still, that foundation is a tough one to give up.

    Congratulations on landing a new job! I wish you on the best going forward.

    Ha, I heard and saw that snowstorm that battered my poor little island! I live in Toronto now, so I live with snowstorms 🙂

  12. March 6, 2018 / 1:17 pm

    Congratulations on your new job! The snow has been a nightmare for us too, we live on the top floor and it hit us hard. Snow was walked in and out of the house and i have really light carpets so I’ve spent so much time cleaning when I hate doing it too x

  13. March 6, 2018 / 6:13 pm

    Congratulations on officially signing the contract for your new job. Have a great time in New York

  14. March 6, 2018 / 7:49 pm

    Congratulations on signing the contract for your new job – how exciting! The snow was really annoying, wasn’t it? Great for a day or two but after that it was just slushy and slippery. Still…my little boy loved every second of it even if I didn’t.

  15. March 6, 2018 / 7:58 pm

    congrats on the new job! Sounds like lots of exciting things going on! x

  16. March 6, 2018 / 10:07 pm

    Sounds like you have had another great week. So glad that the snow is gone, I hate cleaning too and there was so much dirt to get rid off from the snow and like you said it was super icy here. Have a fab time in NY and cant wait to see all your photos when you are back.

  17. March 6, 2018 / 10:10 pm

    I have been hating the snow big time too, but atleast you have your trip to the NY to look forward to, I am off to Luxembourg m so excited.

  18. March 7, 2018 / 11:05 am

    I love the 5 things idea! I love New York – especially in the snow so I can’t wait to hear all about it (snow in NYC is much nicer than snowy days here for sure!). I am contemplating getting tickets to Slam Dunk in Leeds too, it’s always the best line up! x

    Congratulations on your new job! I agree the snow was annoying, so glad it’s finally melted 🙂

  21. March 7, 2018 / 6:14 pm

    I really hope the new job works out well for you! The snow really has made things tricky we had to cancel quite a bit of things we had planned.

  22. March 7, 2018 / 10:11 pm

    My week has been quite hectic and tiring, even though it’s barely Wednesday. Looking forward to the weekend again to catch up on blogging <3

  23. March 8, 2018 / 12:08 am

    Sounds like a pretty good week! Congrats on the new job! If i’m honest, the snow kind of annoyed me too! I like my routine and we couldn’t even step outside the front door for a few days :/

  24. March 8, 2018 / 3:25 pm

    NEW YORK IS SO EXCITING. I’m quite jealous.

    Sorry you didn’t enjoy the snow as much as I did. I’m missing it already.

    The Slam Dunk line-up looks pretty good this year, if I wasn’t away over the bank holiday, I’d be going too!

  25. March 9, 2018 / 4:45 am

    Have fun in New York and hope the weather will be much better than the UK. I didn’t like the snow either and was so over it
