Lazy days...

Friday, 25 January 2013

Well hello there,

For me this week has been a monumentally lazy one! I had a 'reading week' from college and must ashamedly admit I haven't done a huge amount of reading! (naughty!!) Instead I've had a pampering week, caught up on sleep, caught up with friends and generally had a well deserved break. This week has been the first time I've had two or more days off in a row since well before Christmas, so I think it's okay to be a little lazy sometimes and to enjoy being a little unproductive.

Though looking back I have been busier than I first thought; maybe just not doing what my lecturers had hoped ;) I would be:

Monday: HD Brows and Gelish nails appointment, then lunch at my friend Kelly's.
Tuesday: The longest lie in I've had in over a year, 96% sleep quality on 'Sleep Cycle' most likely due to my ten hour sleep!
Wednesday: Lunch and spa afternoon with Kelly, nothing like a swim, jacuzzi, sauna and steamroom sesh' to revitalise you :) then off to see the Hobbit with my little brother.
Thursday: Lunch at Cibo e Vino (Stirling's best Italian restaurant btw!) with my Granny and Mum, plus a cheeky trip to the new Waitrose which had just opened.
Friday: Trip to the hairdressers, a quick run about the shops to buy a new dress for tomorrow night ;) and to buy new work uniform and then home for Burns Supper, perfect.

Little brother being a cool kid in his Parka ;) heading to finally see The Hobbit.

Snow on the hills and the Wallace Monument :)

Using Pinterest for hairstyle inspiration; look no.1 Heidi braids. 
Love having Waitrose in Stirling :) Froyo! 
Kirsty from CoffeeandCakes recommended this, picked it up in Waitrose so excited to give it  a try.

Amusing myself at the Hairdressers, bleach oan!

Snowy view from the window this morning, so pretty :) it's snowed non-stop all day.

So despite not getting a huge amount of college work done, I've had a lovely week. I'm pretty sure I did something on Tuesday though I can't remember what I did?!...

As I haven't posted much this week I decided I'd do a little post with a few pictures, a wee update if you like :) I'll also be posting my first DIY post in the next few days, a must for those of us attending lots of 18th and 21st Birthday parties this year. I'm turning 21 later this year and so this year is in a way 'The year of the 21st's' and presents can be so hard to buy!

And last but not least a picture of my new favourite cushion;

"IT'S A PUG!" 
I hope you all had a lovely week and that the snow (if you've had it) hasn't been too much of a hindrance, have a lovely weekend all!! 

Till next time,


  1. Wow, looks like you have had a lovely pampering week, I've never actually been to a spa before, I've always wanted to go to one but need someone to come with me... take me next time haha :P xx

    1. I'd never been either, though it was actually just a health club with jacuzzi, sauna etc. I really want to go to the Victorian Spa at Crieff Hydro it looks beautiful 😊 would be amazing for a bloggers day :P xx

  2. What a week! Looks like a lovely pampering week and I LOVE that pug cushion. Well done :-) like the look of those Heidi pleats too! My hair is huge and curly... Can never wrestle it into anything fancy! Siiiigh xxx

    1. The pug cushion is from Primark :D a bargainous £4! I'm quite lucky in that my hair usually does what I want it too... Famous last words :/ haha though I've always wished I had curly hair! Xx

  3. absolutely love your hair! it's so pretty in that headband style plait
