Stay away – I think I have the lurgy! Everyone in the office seems to be suffering from the first onset of colds and flus thanks to the quick influx of cooler weather. The winter duvet is on, my fluffy dressing gown is firmly wrapped round me at all times it’s a winner when I’m on the tube ;) and I am eyeing up my coats to come out of the cupboard. Next week is October which marks my birthday (WOO YEAH) and I’m already itching to go on a jumper shopping spree to keep me nice and warm in the office. Fingers crossed my dosing of lemsip keeps this cold at bay so I can be fighting fit for my birthday weekend – only a week to go!

This Week I’ve Been…

Embracing the autumnal lipstick hues – and opened out my all-time favourite Clinique Chubby Stick Intense in the gorgeous shade 09 Roundest Raspberry

Reliving one of my all time favourite moments in GBBO – however nothing will quite beat the squirrel balls incident, only true fans will know about that ;)

Giving a high five to the local newsagents when I saw he stocked Dairy Milk Oreo BARS! – no longer do I have to pretend that I didn’t just consume an entire share sized bar to myself, I can indulge in a cheeky treat of this scrumptious combo without all the guilt

Thankful for filters – when you had an enjoyable Saturday night saying goodbye to a friend that is off on a travelling adventure the way to survive the morning after is with lots of Instagram filters and a trip to Pets at Home to stare at cute baby bunnies

Sharing my embarrassing packaging hoarding problems – please tell me I’m not the only one! I cracked open my not so secret stash of packaging to have a ‘clear out’. One of these days I’ll stop keeping absolutely everything!
