A Long Weekend // What I've been up to





Mmm, Yo Sushi! I don't even like raw fish, but their variety of rice, tempura and katsu is enough to pull me in time and time again. That, and the convenience and fun of pulling food straight off a conveyer belt - Its really easy to get carried away!








Penny and Amber both received these cute personalised tags* from Hoobynoo World. Previously Penny had a pretty boring silver one, so its quite nice to brighten her collar up a little bit without covering her in pink fluff - She's fluffy enough without unnecessary accessories too! If you fancy updating your pooches tag (certain details are required by law, by the way) you can get 10% off with the code PETBLOG10



Yes, I may have indulged this weekend. With full intentions to make the most of the weekend with a bit of a juice detox, I clearly thought best to indulge, instead! I spent Sunday night watching Disney Pixar films with Dan before our Disney trip next month, with popcorn and treats. Yum! 



My 'to do' list has been huge recently, and whilst I had full intent to diminish said list last weekend seeing as I'd booked Friday and Monday off too, I ended up being totally distracted running around fields with Penny, watching films, indulging, and dreaming up ways to redecorate our office and bedroom (hello Pinterest)! We're starting to save for our own house, but to tolerate living here for another year or two, its going to need some jazzing up as soon as Penny stops ruining everything, because I'm fed up of its juvenile feel. I've been eyeing up gorgeous cashmere throws and bed linen from Urbanara (they're transferrable anyway, right)? as well as some cheaper alternative wall art from Posterlounge to add a bit of sophistication to our tired room, whilst on a budget. I also need to take a broken lamp back to Argos and a broken lit mirror to Boots, argh! 

As you can see (kind of) I also had my hair done! I've had about 3 inches chopped off and have added a bit of balayage. At the minute the toner seems to have darkened it a little too much so its not too noticeable I don't think - perhaps after a few washes! 


What have you been getting up to during the weekends?

  2. I've been eye-ing cashmere throws too. They look entirely too comfy. Yo Sushi looks absolutely delicious. I haven't seen it in Seattle yet, but I hope it makes its way here.

  10. Aww, your dogs just won my heart. I want to have so badly a dog, but my landlord does not allow pets in the apartment. :( I feel you with the "To do" list. Gotta have a fresh week, right?
