Wednesday Loves #73!

Pretty dogs in pretty flower crowns!
Look at this duvet! Look at it! Isn't it the most beautiful duvet you've ever seen?
I seriously need these rings in my life. They're amazing!

How amazing does Charissa's hair look?

RACCOON RING. AMAZING RACCOON RING.



This bag is beautiful. I am on the verge of clicking "buy" as I write this.

This mermaid illustration is amazing.


 So Dave Grohl wins the ASL ice bucket challenge!

I am in love with this picture from Katy's trip to London. The more I look at it the more I love it! The bridge looks so beautiful!

Cat bum necklaces have to be the greatest thing ever, right?

Other awesome links: 
<3 Samantha waited until her wedding day to lose her virginity. Read about why she wishes she hadn't. There are some really good reasons behind her choice.
<3 A CAT TALKING TO HER KITTENS. CUTE OVERLOAD.
<3 Emma Blackery (a Youtuber for those of you who don't know) shaved her head this week after raising £26,000 for a number of charities. Just amazing.
<3 The Lineup Of A Summer Festival As Guessed By A Mum is amazing. "Why aren't any of the Shakira?!" Mums are the best.
<3 I'm in love with Harry Styles (I don't know if I told you before?) and I cannot stop watching this Vine of his beautiful voice.
<3 This abstract floral phone case is so gorgeous!
<3 Westboro Baptist Church strikes again! Apparently they're planning on picketing Robin William's funeral and Adam Hills has something to say about it. Go Adam Hill!
<3 Britney Spears' ALS Ice Bucket challenge is one of my favourites. It actually has ice cubes in it (unlike most people's!) and she shouts "f*ck!" at the end. I feel ya, Britney, I feel ya. 
<3 Mara Wilson wrote a really lovely post about Robin Williams. It's such a heartwarming tribute. 
<3 Lisa Jakub also wrote a blog post about why Robin Williams was her hero and it's just wonderful.
What a guy!

This Week I've...


...been treated to something pretty! Sadie has a tendency of finding awesome things on eBay/online and I arrived at her house on Saturay afternoon to be presented with these AMAZING dresses! Just look at the beautiful prints! The galaxy printed dress is just absolutely perfect and I am in love with the splashy bird print (technical term) on the white dress. The best thing about them is the swishy-flowy-ness (another technical term!) of the skirt. I can't wait to show you them in an outfit post! 

...babysat this cutie pie! We were at Sadie's house because I had offered to babysit for them while Dave fixed something on their car. We were there for quite a lot of the afternoon and we got to play with M, which is always the most fun ever! As you can see, I emptied the balls from her make-shift ball pool into her play cot and we were having a right old laugh. She then decided to eat Mr Elephant... poor Mr Elephant. 

...finished Gavin & Stacey. A few weeks ago I mentioned that we were making our way through the first and second seasons of Gavin and Stacey. Well on Sunday afternoon Dannielle bought the complete box set (as we'd previously been watching them on Netflix and it doesn't have season 3!) and by Sunday evening we'd finished the third season. I say "we", I actually mean us girls. The guys were at band practice. 

...read some more. I've been really good with finding time to read this last week. Stealing a half hour to an hour here or there. I'm about half way through this book so far and it's getting so good! I cannot wait to finish this one and move on to the next. 

...Stuffed my face. I forgot to take a picture of this one but A made a ridiculously delicious roast on Sunday evening. I'm not even kidding, it was delicious. The roast potatoes were crunchy but soft in the middle and that's a right winner in my eyes. She also made an apple crumbs which was SO YUMMY! I told her that I wanted to marry her because it was all so good (sorry Liam!).

...Ordered some more photos. Proud Aunty or what? I've been ordering more snaps from the Free Prints app again. I just can't get enough. Give me all of the free photos! Especially if they're all of M'a cute face. 

...been dealing with an annoying Bloglovin'. So apparently Bloglovin thinks it's having a right laugh and has decided to stop showing my latest posts. If you've popped over here from Bloglovin' could you let me know if it's working or not? If not then I'm going to be writing a strongly worded letter to them!... Or I'll just wait it out. It'll come back eventually, right? 

What have you been up to this week?

Sucky Sunday!

Andrex's "How do you feel after you use the loo?" advert. I honestly don't get this advert. Why are non-Andrex users incapable of answering the question. How can they only muster a small giggle? What is wrong with their post bathroom routine that they just really don't want to talk about?  What makes Andrex so much cleaner? It's a ridiculous advert, it's stupid and it makes no sense. 

People who stand right outside of doors and smoke. Every single day I walk out of the mall when I leave work and everyone single day someone is stood right outside of the doors smoking a bloody cigarette. It all makes sense though because the smoke knows not to float back through the doors. It knows it's not supposed to be in there so it's ok. It's really nice walking through the doors and walking into a cloud of smoke, it really makes my day. A cloud of smoke to the face is just what I need after a long day at work. I understand that it's a nuisance for you to have to go outside but couldn't you just take three steps further and you know, not blow the smoke into my face? Cheers. 

Garlic. I love the taste of garlic but I absolutely detest the smell of it. It's one of those insta-vom kinds of smells. It really gets up my nose. Garlic also sucks because it sticks to your fingers and never goes away. Cooking something with garlic? Well you'd better wear gloves or prepare to smell it on your fingers for about a week after. Ugh. 

What about you? What's been annoying you recently?

The Summer Tag!

That absolute babe called Michelle tagged me in this summer tag. As the weather has been a bit pants these last few days I've decided to try and bring summer back by answering some questions about it! 

1. What’s your favourite thing about summer?
Doing fun things with people. Fancy sitting on a beach with a picnic? Taking a walk in the woods for a few hours one evening? Having a BBQ with a few beers? You can because it's summer and  it will be so much fun! 

2. Do you have a favourite summer drink?

Milkshakes, although I drink them all throughout the year so that doesn't count... Beer? I always fancy a beer in the sun after a long day of work. 

3. Is there a location you prefer to go to in the summer?
Cornwall! It's much less windy and a lot more pretty in the summer (even if it is filled with holiday makers!) and I could spend hours and hours on the beach or looking out at the beautiful views. 

4. Favourite make up look for summer?
Yeah my make up doesn't change at any time during the year and it hasn't changed since I was 16... Eyeliner and mascara. Easy peasy! 

5. Dresses or Skirts?
Dresses, all the way. I can't even remember the last time I wore a skint. I love them! Don't get me wrong! I just don't think I can pull them off :(

6. Sandals or Ballet pumps?Ballet pumps. I don't really like having my toes out so sandals are a no go. I'll wear them on the beach because I don't like the sea. Feeling things between my toes terrifies me so I like to wear sandals in it. Thug life chose me. 

7. Do you prefer to wear your hair up or down for summer?

Hair down! I absolutely hate having my hair up. I do not like it and I only really put it up if it's really disgustingly hot outside or my hair is greasy and I can't get away with keeping it down. 

8. Deep smoky eyes or bold lips?No matter how hard I try I always feel strange with lipstick on so I'll have to go with deep smoky eyes. Even though I've never managed to perfect the smoke eye look. Why is it so hard?! 

9. Favourite perfume for summer?
Anything by Marc Jacobs. They are the absolute perfect scents, so summery and so beautiful. 

10. Last but not least, favourite music for the summer?

Pop-punk or emo. Without a doubt. New Found Glory, Paramore, Jimmy Eat World, Hidden In Plain View. There is nothing better than driving around with your windows open in the sun, singing your little heart out. 

I am tagging Danni, Becky, Marie, Chelsea, Danielle, Samantha and Hannah! Don't feel like you have to do the tag if you don't want to. I won't feel (completely) heartbroken... I jest! Feel free to do this badboy yourself, I have one condition though; you must leave a link in the comments so I can read your answers!
