I’ve just started this book, by one of my longtime favourite authors, and it looks as though it’s going to be a good read.
Ashley’s Lana Del Rey CD is in my car for some reason, and every time I switch on the engine, she starts her miserable wailing, for about two seconds until I switch over to the radio. By the time I get to wherever I’m going, I’ve forgotten the damn thing is in there – I must remember to take it out. Talk about depressing.
I am absolutely glued to Scandal on USA Netflix at the moment. I’ve just finished the third season, and it really is one of those series when I find myself saying ‘oh, just one more episode, then …’ It’s been the cause of many late nights since we got back from holiday!
In an effort to streamline my morning routine, I’ve decided to pick one eye shadow palette to use each week, rather than flitting from one to the other each day. This week’s choice is this one, which is a dupe of the much more expensive (and difficult to get hold of in the UK) Lorac Pro Palette.
Frequently Worn Outfits/Items
Pastel coloured jeans and black tops seem to be my summer uniform this year. The weather’s been pretty changeable here, not many floaty summer dresses in evidence!
We’ve been enjoying tapas style eating in the evenings lately. Lots of snacky type things rather than a big meal. It just seems to suit us all at the moment. We did have a delicious fish pie on Sunday evening, though, to use up lots of bits of fish we had floating around in the freezer.
Mostly water. I cut down on tea and coffee hugely during the summer, without even trying to.
Rubbish summer weather. Raining cats and dogs this morning.
We’re having a BBQ this coming Saturday for a group of friends who were all parents of kids in Will’s primary school class. There will be about 20 of us in total, parents and kids. Lazily, I’m replicating the exact food and drinks menu I did for the last party we had, a couple of months ago, for Ashley’s staff, which was a similar number of people and went down well.
I haven’t had time to even think about browsing any shopping websites since getting back from holiday, so my wishlist is pretty non-existent at the moment. I do have a Pinterest beauty product wishlist board, though, which I’m always adding to.
Eye test this afternoon – I wonder if I’m going to need glasses or not?
