Five Things – Week 39

Five Things – Week 39

Originally I had planned this week to be pretty chill but then realized other than Wednesday (when I still had aqua) I was out every other week night and both days at the weekend including a whopping four trips into London (Mon/ Fri/ Sat/ Sun). I don’t quite know how my body has coped with so much excitement this week but it’s been an awesome week for doing things.

Five Six Things I Did This Week

  • On Monday I had a lovely catch up meal with two of my friends and we tried Maxwell’s in Covent Garden. This is somewhere I have been meaning to try for ages and Monday’s they have good money off main meals and £4.50 cocktails all day so it seemed like a great chance. I had the best mac and cheese, a few cocktails and an awesome freak shake so definitely a naughty evening of food.
  • On Tuesday evening I had a catch up with my group of school friends. We headed to Harrow to have an Indian meal but because I am not an Indian fan I just stuck to rice and a naan bread, but it was probably a good idea after how much I ate the night before.
  • On Friday night I went along to an awesome pub in Clapham and did my very first escape rooms with a company called Handmade Mysteries. I went along with three of my friends and it was so much fun despite us being super scared and not finishing.
  • On Saturday I did my indoor scuba diving training and it went really well. I was at the dive centre for about eight hours, with almost six of those being in the water so it was knackering but I’m so glad I did all my skills with no problems.
  • On Sunday morning I went shopping and had a catch up with my nan which was nice.
  • Sunday evening was my gig of the week and this time it was the mighty Billy Talent who were pretty awesome. I forget how great their back catalogue is sometimes but the night reminded me.

Five Great Things To Happen

  • I had my passes confirmation for Pierce the Veil later in November and I am so excited to catch the band again.
  • I finally got hold of a Kat Von D lock it concealer and brush and the Double Dare liquid lipstick which I had been crushing on for ages so I can’t wait to try them out.
  • I bought the most awesome new coat for the winter time and it is so snuggly and warm that I’m actually looking forward to it getting colder.
  • On Saturday evening as I was so shattered from my scuba diving I caught up with a lot of sleep, falling asleep by 10pm Saturday night and not waking up until 9am Sunday morning (although I definitely could have slept for longer).
  • I found out that fast track passes at Disneyland Paris are completely free so I know what we’re doing as soon as hit the park next weekend!

Five Things Which Sucked 

  • I found out my work end of year party is on the day when I am in Copenhagen which I am kind of gutted about as it was such a laugh last year.
  • I have been searching for a black denim jacket for ages and still can’t find the right one. I’ve ordered so many and they’re either cropped, too big or have thick lining which I don’t want. I can’t believe it’s so difficult to find one.
  • Same old sucky thing but I put on weight at Slimming World again. I am in such a bad routine and really need to sort myself out and get properly motivated.
  • I felt pretty ill/crappy on Sunday evening around the gig and by the time I got home I had a really bad headache which was annoying. Because I was feeling so bad I ended up having to cancel my interview with the band as I wasn’t in a state to do it.
  • I had planned to get quite a lot done on Saturday evening but as I was so shattered it has left me a little behind playing catch up.

Five Things To Do Next Week

  • Pack for Paris next week and find my autograph book
  • Watch at least one new movie. I have such a long list of movies I need to watch that I definitely feel next week would be a good time to cross one off my list.
  • Edit my photos and do my Billy Talent review quickly so I don’t get behind.
  • Try not to spend too much money during my brief trip to Westfield’s on Monday before You Me At Six.
  • Do some more prep on my Christmas gift guides and get as much of November scheduled up as possible.

    I really want to try the Kat Von D lock it concealer and foundation but unless I’m prepared to travel to Oxford Street, it won’t happen for awhile. Fast track passes at Disneyland are necessary, it’s a lot better than standing in the long queues that’s for sure xo

      I actually got one from Primark in the end. I was so shocked at the quality and it was only £18 but it’s so warm x

    Sounds like you’ve had a busy week. I’ve been off plan food wise for a few weeks but went back on last week and lost 3lbs! It’s amazing how easy it is to do when you put your mind to it x

    Sounds like a really busy week for you. I have been pretty busy sorting stuff out at home and taking part in and enjoying lots of events around Manchester Science Week – last night we went to a Behind the Scenes for Planet Earth 2. Really fun, even though I’m still recovering from a cold 🙂

    Check Julien Macdonald for thedrnim jacket. They are usually a few in Debenhams.

    If it makes you feel any better lovely lady you are not alone in the weight gain. I got into a bad habit at Disneyworld and I’ve gained relentlessly since! H x

    I haven’t tried Maxwell’s yet but that macaroni cheese looks delicious and cocktails sound good I had better get something arranged with my friends. Thanks for the suggestion.

    It sounds like a fairly good week! Catching up with school friends is always really nice! And yay for catching up on sleep, too! I NEED to do that this weekend, I have been SO tired this week. I hope you find the perfect denim jacket! xx

  22. October 27, 2016 / 7:06 pm

    wowzers! £4.50 for a cocktail in covent garden is a steal! I really need to get working on my gift guides too – thanks for the kick up the bum x

    I definitely have to check Maxwell’s in Covent Garden! I am constantly looking for new places I could discover on my city trips to London!
