InstaLIFE // w/c 16th November 2014

I've had another fun week, with a Bloggers Love event, a trip to the theatre and a weekend away in Bristol for one of my friend's hen do. I've also discovered a couple of London gems, started a new book and fallen in love on the tube...ooohhh!


I am getting so excited for Christmas and couldn't resist downloading Ruth Saberton's latest novel Escape for Christmas. It's the follow up to her Escape for the Summer novel (which I loved and reviewed here) and I'm absolutely loving catching up with the characters as they prepare for Christmas. Only 32 days to go squeeeee!


On Monday I went along to the Bloggers Love Bloggers Love Hub event. I had a really good night and met lots of lovely brands and bloggers. One of my highlights was taking part in a cupcake decorating class with Miss Cupcakes. It was really fun and I got to decorate three cakes including this little EMSYPICKLE one! I'll have a full post up about Bloggers Love Hub very soon so watch this space.


On Tuesday I went to see Shakespeare In Love at the Noel Coward Theatre with my mum and we loved it! Neither of us had seen the film which it is based on and really liked the story. The actors were really energetic and there were several laugh out loud moments so I'd definitely recommend going to see it if you get the chance. I really want to watch the film now too to see how they compare.


Yes, I've had another trip to Primark this week (when don't I say that?!) I've seen a picture on Instagram of an UH-MAZING pair of Olaf print pyjama bottoms which I am dying to get my hands on but just can't seem to find. I did see these cute Little Mermaid sets though. Primark's pyjama game is very strong right now so if you do need some new bed wear I'd definitely give them a visit!


Walking past the British Museum this week I spotted this cute little guy! There are Paddington Bear statues all around London at the moment to celebrate the new Paddington film coming out at the end of the month. I love his marmalade print coat!


I'm a sucker for a skinny iced mocha and couldn't resist popping into the Starbucks opposite the British Museum. The barista who made my drink drew a funny face on my cup and said "It's amazing how something as small as a silly drawing can make somebody smile". He had also done some incredible art on some of the coffee cups which were on display. Look at the owl, amazing!


Look at this little sweetheart! I'm such a dog perve and just can't stop staring when I see a cute pup! I was beyond delighted when this little guy was on my tube home the other night. I thought my heart was going to burst when he fell asleep on his owners lap! Wahhhh I want a dog for Christnas!!!


My friend Tori is getting married next month and this weekend 10 of us went to Bristol for her hen do! We had such a fun time and I laughed so much my tummy feels like I've actually spent two days doing sit ups! The maid of honour had bought each hen a cute little glass charm for us to use during our Champagne tasting session and as a cute little keepsake from the weekend. Eeep I can't wait for the wedding now!


A couple of weeks ago I wrote about my excitement at the John Lewis Christmas ad and this week I'm enjoying the Sainsbury's offering! I love that you can actually buy the classically branded chocolate bar from the advert. Money from each purchase goes to The Royal British Legion so surely that makes it a guilt free treat?!

I hope you've had a good week! Let me know below if you've started to get excited for Christmas already too!
