My week in photos

my week in photos

1. We had a desk decorating competition at work for the World Cup. It got quite competitive. Here’s the winning entry.
2. Got the best biscuits from Poundland. They were broken. It made me sad.
3. Sat in the garden, catching up on the blog at the weekend – pretty damn perfect!
4. Eating like a child – winner!

Want, need, wear, read

want need wear read

Want: Forget the summer pastel shades – you need the Bunny Lebowski nail polish, £7.99 from Firebox
Need: The house we’re renting came with patio chairs that go with the table and a couple of loungers which are properly low – like really low. I struggle to get up again! So we actually need these lovely deck chairs from Graham and Green!
Wear: Beautiful tea dress from Peacocks for just £16!
Read: If you loved How To Be a Woman, you need to read Caitlin Moran’s novel about a 14-year-old girl. How To Build a Girl has quickly jumped to the top of my list
