Hello and happy InstaLIFE Sunday! I’ve had quite a nice couple of weeks since I last posted an update, despite it being January which is usually pretty gloomy! I’ve had some great days out, eaten lots of delicious food and had the odd shopping trip or two! So far 2015 is ticking along nicely!
I saw this little pic on Twitter and absolutely loved it! Pizza is one of my all time favourite foods and I am definitely missing it atm as one of my New Years resolutions and goals for 2015 is to be a lot healthier this year. Which means I’ve not had any pizza yet this year waahhhh!! I have however had the odd treat, as you’ll see in the rest of my pics…!
It’s been so cold in London recently and I’ve been thinking longingly of the lovely hot summer we had last year, so it seemed only right that I posted a #TBT photo from my friend’s wedding I went to in July. I really like this pic of Tony and I and still really love the dress I wore (which you can read more about here).
Last Friday Tony and I went to Honest Burger for dinner (haha what did I say about eating healthily?! Hey, we’re all allowed the odd YOLO meal, right?!) While we waited for our table we went to one of my favourite bars – Simmons – and whilst I was thinking how much I was enjoying my beer I suddenly remembered I was supposed to be going dry for January! Whoops! It’s the first drink I’ve had all year, and I’ve not had one since so it’s not too bad. Right?! And how awesome is the wallpaper?! I used to have the same print as curtains in my bedroom when I was little! (I say little, they actually stayed until I moved out when I was 18!)
Last weekend Toto and I headed down to the Museum of London and checked out their Sherlock exhibition. If you haven’t been to the MoL it’s definitely worth a visit and tells the whole history of London right back from its beginning to modern day. There’s loads to see and I learnt so much I didn’t know about my beloved city. And best of all – it’s free! The Sherlock exhibition was also really interesting and had some amazing maps and photos of London, with lots of quotes, props and artefacts from the Sherlock series. And there’s a place where you can pose for these awesome pics…! Don your deerstalker and get down there!
I had a lovely time last Sunday at a bloggers Dim Sum Afternoon Tea, hosted by my fave blogger network Joe Blogs – thanks guys! The food was absolutely delicious and it was lovely to celebrate Chinese New Year (a little early) and meet lots of new blogging friends. I’ll have a full post about this up super soon with more pictures of the scrumptious food! Watch this space…!

So Monday 19th January was officially the most depressing day of the year, apparently…! I decided to brace myself for whatever Blue Monday might throw at me with my new MAC lipstick in the shade Captive which I LOVE and a sparkly statement necklace. It seemed to work as my day turned out pretty well and my Shoeaholics order arrived hurrah! You can see what I bought in my upcoming Pickle’s Payday Purchases haul post!
Another throwback Thursday pic! It suddenly dawned on me this week that I have absolutely zero gigs or festivals planned for this year! Yikes! I need to remedy this ASAP! Here’s a photo of my friend Ruth and I lounging by the Glastonbury sign in 2011 – I definitely need to book some fun musical times for 2015.
On Friday night I decided to go for a quick mooch around Primark on my way home from work. One of my favourite sections to check out in the Tottenham Court Road store is the big wall of tshirts. There were loads of new ones in and lots of Disney ones including a new Lion King one, a collage of Disney Princesses and this amazing slogan tee. I definitely need to treat myself to one of these for my upcoming trip to Disneyland Paris!
I hope you’ve been having a fun January too. I’m super excited that February is fast approaching and have lots planned for my blog to celebrate Valentine’s Day and my birthday, including a giveaway so keep your eyes peeled for that!
I live in Brixton in London. I eat out far too much, am always planning my next trip and have a borderline unhealthy obsession with Harry Potter.
