My week in photos

my week in photos

1. I was feeling a bit rubbish the other evening and the boyfriend made me a rose out of a blue-tac. Sounds naff when you say it out loud but was super sweet!
2. Had cornish cheese tart with roasted courgettes and salad for lunch at work and I swear it was one of the best meals I’ve ever eaten! I’m gonna have roasted courgette with everything now. Think it had rosemary or something on it too – yum!
3. Cute kitty sat outside my office window
4. Bought a really pretty scarf on Mazey Day – £4 each or 3 for £10! Couldn’t pick two others though.

Want, need, wear, read

want need wear read

Want: Ed Sheeran has a new album out!
Need: I really need a sun hat but none of the ladies’ ones fit my head and the men’s are quite dull…
Wear: I’d rather have a lifestyle or general blogger one myself but I’m liking this fashion blogger jumper from River Island
Read: Make Twitter work for you with Phil Pallen and Lauren Moore’s book!
