Life recently…

It’s been a fair while since I did one of these ‘week in the life of’ type posts, but felt like popping one up today as a little update on what I’ve been doing recently, and why posting may have been a little less regular than usual! But I am back, post-hols, feeling refreshed and bursting with blog post ideas! Now just need to make it out of my PJs and bring the ideas to life…!

So in case you hadn’t guessed, I was away on holiday last week – at a hotel with no wifi. Yes, they exist, yes, this bothered me more than it should and yes, it was actually really good to have a break from my surgical attachment to my iphone. I did check in here and there when we were out and about, couldn’t go quite cold turkey but it did stop the last thing at night/first thing in the morning social media checking habit for a week at least!

Coming back I’m feeling refreshed and more excited to blog than I was feeling before. I got straight into playing with make-up again and spent the day taking some photos for upcoming blog posts.

Have you managed to track down a coke with your name on it? I spent a bit longer than is probably acceptable digging into the back of the fridge in the Boots near work to see if they had a Jen – and they did! Woo! It did mean I broke my ‘no coke’ rule that has come in as part of my fitness mission…but a treat is ok!

The gorgeous dog above is Molly, she’s the latest addition to my fiances side of the family – a rescue dog via The Dogs Trust and she’s amazing. So friendly and amazingly well behaved already, I really want a dog myself but can’t whilst living in a small flat in London – so until I can, Molly will be the closest I can get!

I’ve included a few snaps from holiday – we we’re in Majorca and I can’t resist the lure of the local markets. I didn’t really buy anything but love to browse them – especially the food stalls. But this snap is of some of the colourful bowls that caught my eye.

Of course a holiday isn’t complete without a bit of a Duty Free splurge…. a few little bits from Dior to add to another few purchases I made from the brand a while ago. Blog post to come!

More holiday snaps…a gorgeous sunset from where we were having dinner. My version of packing light… *ahem* (In my defence they are mostly mini size!) and what a way to finish…pre-midday mojitos in the sun, overlooking the sea….

This is of course far from my average week… but wanted to share the fun bits!
