InstaLIFE // w/c 20th July 2014

I've had a bit more of a chilled week compared to the action packed festival and event fun of last week. However I did encounter unicorns, fabulous nails, Disney princesses, cake, and a kiss from Paris Hilton. Read on and enjoy!


I am a massive Paris Hilton fan. Ever since I first saw The Simple Life I fell in love with her and Nicole! One of my absolute favourite songs is Stars Are Blind (and I put it on every single mix tape I make anyone - be warned!) so I was excited to hear Paris' new song Come Alive, and even more excited to see the video. Oh I was not disappointed! There's rainbows, flowers, UNICORNS! Literally everything ridiculously fabulous you could ever want to see in one place. So obvs I did a little Instagram snapshot to show my appreciation.... And guess who should "Like" it and send a virtual kiss?! PARIS HILTON herself! That's hot! 


On Tuesday I went along to a health and fitness blog event run by Currys called #CurrysIntrojuicing First up what an awesome hashtag - it literally took me a week to realise that it is a play on words of "Currys Introducing", and when I did - mind blown!! Haha I'm easily pleased (and apparently pretty slow on the uptake!) I had such a great night and met some amazing new blogging friends such as Bei from BeiFit and I finally got to meet my #HollandandBarrettBuddies partner Dani who was there too! Bei, Dani and I had such fun together as we learnt all about juicing and then gave it a go ourselves, followed by probably the most intense circuits class EVER! (I seriously am only just able to walk properly again!) I also won a juicer for my snazzy tweeting and Instagram pictures which was awesome, so I can continue to utilise everything I learnt at the event. Thank you so much to Currys and Joe's Bloggers for having me I had a fab night and found it really beneficial too.


Look at how cute this phone cover* is!! Everything from the pastel blue background to the polka dots and little fashionista bunny dressed up as an Alice in Wonderland style tea cup is adorable! It was sent to me by the lovely folk at Iconemesis to raise awareness of their #SUPPORTICONEMESIS campaign. Iconemesis sell well made stylish phone cases designed by British artists and are currently looking for crowd funding via site IndiegogoI'd not heard of Indiegogo before but it allows people to support causes and business ideas they wouldn't otherwise have access to. Iconemesis has some fabulous designs - including more fashion forward bunnies - so check out their campaign here.


I did a little Throwback Thursday snap this week - my friends and I chilling with the Naked Cowboy in Times Square NYC in 2008. This was literally one of the funniest weekends of my life and was such an amazing way to finish off my 9 month travelling trip. Let me know if you'd like to see some posts about my travel adventures :D


Get ready guys and gals - BAKE OFF IS BACK!!! I was beyond excited when the Bread Lord Himself, Paul Hollywood tweeted that GBBO is starting again on the 6th August (soooo soon!!!) I am obsessed with this show and last year baked along with the theme each week (which you can see here). I think I will be doing this again this year as I had so much fun and tried so many new recipes and baking techniques. And let's face it, it's a great excuse to eat cake!


I seem to always wear a statement necklace on Fridays and this week I went for this white number from Primark. I bought it a while ago and then completely forgot about it until I came across it on Thursday night! I love it when this happens as it's like you get the excitement of buying it twice :D oh dear, I have problems!


Check out this bad boy! On Friday night we went for dinner and drinks with some friends and ended up in underground cocktail bar Shebeen in Kentish Town which serves Poitins cocktails. I went for the Leprachaun Zombie which is made up of two different proof Poitins, galliano, maraschino, apricot liqueur, pineapple juice, grapefruit juice, lime juice and passion fruit purée. Blimey, the Goblet of Fire's got nothing on this!


I don't think you ever grow out of the excitement of getting to ride at the front of the top of the bus! It literally makes my day! Please let me know I'm not the only big kid who gets excited by this?!


I nipped into Primark early yesterday morning and came out with these little goodies! The Disney Princess Sweets, Games and Surprises pack was a bargainous £1.50 pressie for a friend, the lipgloss applicators were too good a deal to turn down - 50p for 10?! yes please! - and how amazing are these summery pastel Aztec false nails?! I have tried their falsies before and thought it would be fun to give another set a go. At £1 you can't really go wrong! I also treated myself to some Haribo Minions (yes you did read that right!) which are almost too cute to eat. Almost....


So that's my week in a nutshell! What have you been up to? 

*Thank you Iconemesis for sending me the phone case. All thoughts are honest and my own. For more information please see my Disclaimer page.

  1. OMG I thought I was the only person who loved Paris Hilton's music, we're probably the only two people who own her album :D I had no idea she had a new song so I'll check that out as soon as I've finished here!

    I'm too excited about Bake Off too, although I always have to stop myself buying cake to eat whilst watching it ... it just makes me hungry!

    If you love statement necklaces you should check out my friend's little business - Candy Rocks, they have the most beautiful pieces and they're such reasonable prices too (I sound like she's paying me to say that .. ha ha!) I did a little bit on my blog about them - http://www.newgirlintoon.co.uk/2014/06/candy-rocks.html
