Luke and I love a vintage and retro find so we popped along to Southwell Antique & Vintage fair on Sunday to see if we could find any bargains for our new house. We actually found a bargain 70s two-tier coffee table for £14 which was great but I’m keeping that for another post, surprises, surprises. Anyway, here’s a little photo diary of the day, we saw some lovely bits. We also went to a car boot sale the day after and it’s so funny to see the difference in what people take in terms of goods to sell but you can also find some similar bits so it’s useful to go along and grab a bargain or two.
The thing about me is, I love food and I quite like cooking but I’m a lazy cook and if it’s just for me, like it has been for pretty much 3 years of my university life, I’ll cook something big like chilli or lasagne and make it last 3 days or do something simple such as spicy chicken with some pasta and veg. So, there you have it, my cooking repertoire.
Tidying up is never anyone’s favourite thing to do. Unless you’re off Obsessive Compulsive Cleaners. Now, I love that programme and it does always make me want to clean everything in sight but I wouldn’t say I’m that crazy about my cleaning. I like things to be clean and tidy of course but if I forget to hoover it’s not going to bring me out in a rash.
Lacock is one of my most favourite places ever, it’s situated a 10 minute drive away from my parent’s house and it’s so pretty that it’s been used for films such as Harry Potter and Pride & Prejudice! We went for an hour’s walk around it the other day whilst I was at home and had some tea and a little sit down. Here’s a photo diary of the visit!
Great interview with an up & coming Brit actor ready to hit the big time. Read it so you can say you knew about him before he was famous.
As you guys may or may not know I’m Fashion & Beauty for Uni2Know mag, a student magazine based in Nottingham. Recently we had a photo shoot to do for the newest issue and I was in desperate need of some models! It’s difficult to find male models around uni because people aren’t normally keen to offer themselves up for it! My solution came from having Sunday lunch with my Uncle & Auntie, Alex & Alan who happen to be the directors of Fresh Logistics, a ‘temperature controlled courier and storage company’ which is based just down the road from us in Long Eaton. Fresh logistics work mainly for the food and pharmaceutical sectors and provide specialist bespoke services to the frozen, chilled or ambient market. They’ve also just won an award last week for Operations SME at the SHD awards which is wicked! They did me a huge favour by asking a few of their lads that work for them to help us out! Here are a few of the shots from the day, shot by Neil Kates of Keeping It Neil Photography.
I haven’t done a lifestyle post for ages but I had a really lovely Sunday last weekend. Mr Friday & I had Sunday lunch at The Rose Cottage in Rufford, Nottinghamshire. Just over the road from Rufford Park in which we had a super cute little walk round the chilly grounds. Now, down to the important bit, I’m picky about my Sunday dinners because my daddy makes the, absolute ridiculously incredible roast dinners. They are literally the best, no question.
Basially, I love Fran from Made in Chelsea’s style, I think she always looks wicked. So I’ve picked a few bits that I think she’d wear, she loves a floral bold print and a fedora. Pair with a leather jacket or statement blazer and you’ve got her effortless but oh so stylish look. Tres chic.
Productivity, and getting shit done, is usually my aim for the day.
So I thought I’d share a few lil apps, that I like, that help, basically, get shit done.
Personally, to get shit done, I find that I need to take baby steps, make lists and tick things off!
This is a goal reaching app, whether it be losing weight, completing a big task or creating your dream event, Everest is a great little app that can help you along the way. “Everest exists to unlock human potential.”
I love this little tag line, so inspiring don’t you think? For my Everest, I’ve put getting my degree for my major goal, with presentations and hand in dates along the way along with little goals and achievements to get on the way.
So today, I decided to bake some gorgeous cookies using a Nigella recipe, they’re double chocolate chip and amazing! I was inspired by the lovely new bakeware that I picked up on the weekend from TKMaxx, the Mecca of all the things that you want but don’t actually need. These pretty cake tins were only £2.99 each and I couldn’t resist them.
