It’s pretty impressive what your body can do on autopilot. Whether it’s reacting to a change in situation or in my case an impressive lack of sleep. I’m a person who is dedicated to her 8 hours a night of rest and recuperation, anything less and I’m cranky, restless and struggle to function. Cut to a new routine where anything over 4 becomes a luxury – my once tired body after a naughty late night on a Tuesday has been replaced by a adrenaline fuelled shell running on autopilot. But you survive. If you keep pushing you keep going, yes it doesn’t help that my main source of sustenance is chocolate fingers but I’m not entirely adverse to that at the moment ;) Instead I’m astounded by my bodies ability to keep fighting and remind it each day the end is in sight!

This Week I’ve Been…

Wowed by Charlotte Tilbury – after a recent lippie splurge I picked up these two new additions from powerhouse Charlotte Tilbury. Both part of the new limited edition collection in the matte revolution formula, they are a beaut! See more swatches here

Dishing up some Wagamamas – I remember when Waggas first opened, their relaxed seating setup and quick food service was a fresh take on traditional restaurant dining. You can’t deny their dishes are, well, delicious! It’s always nice to indulge in some noodles or ramen

Buying new tops – Banana Republic has quickly become one of my go to shops when it comes to picking up some new pieces. Their middle of the range price points combined with high quality fabric selections results in a shop bursting with things I want to take home. The recent addition to my wardrobe comes from these three laid-back tees

Visiting Lush – a Saturday at work results in a lunchtime on Oxford Street. Last weekend I found myself meandering past the new Lush megastore on the hughstreet. Packed full of bath bomb delights take a look at what I picked up here
