Lil Miss Outgoing: Lately I've been....

Eating desserts (Boom Shakes near Queensbury station).

Sipping caramel latte and eating a full Vegetarian English breakfast at the Breakfast club (it was worth queuing up for twenty minutes).

Watching the 'Wolf of Wall Street' at the Electric cinema - this cinema comprises of comfortable armchairs and beds, as well as cashmere blankets. I can't wait to go back! 

Visiting Notting hill - primarily Portobello market! I also visited the Biscuiteer's cafe - I love buying presents from there for people. Who wouldn't like a personalised biscuit as a present?

Cruising around Southend with my work friends. We spotted this rainbow pub and literally stopped the car just to take a photo.

 Eating jacket potatoes in Covent Garden. My other half and I spent ages looking for a cafe that served jacket potato. It was totally worth it!

Exploring the side streets of London!

Watching the Woman in Black in theatre and dining at Mint Leaf restaurant in London. The food was delicious and the service was very attentive. I was disappointed with the Woman in Black theatre production - I did not find it scary, and found the movie more interesting. The lady next to me fell asleep and started snoring which I found quite funny lol.

What have you been up to?

Lil Miss Impressed: My current favourite nail polishes +

My idea of the perfect nail polish:
  • Easy to apply
  • Lasts for a long time
  • It has to be easy to remove
I've tried many nail polishes - both high end and 'drug store' but my favourite has to be the Barry M Gelly Nail Paints! 

I am so impressed by the quality of the nail polishes. I've had many compliments when I have worn these colours and someone even asked me whether I had a gel manicure!


Any disadvantages?
I wish the nail polishes came in more shades!

How much do they cost?
Barry M nail polishes are relatively cheap. They cost £2.99 or you can get some buy one get one half price in Boot's stores.

Where can I buy them from?

Lil Miss Motivated: Happy New Year+

First of all - Happy New Year to my readers! 

I love the new year - I always feel so motivated and energised! A few of my new year's resolutions are:

1) Learn how to cook - something I have been putting off for years!

2) Read one book a month - I spend countless hours on instagram, facebook, twitter etc. when I could be improving my vocabulary (as well as learning something new) by reading

3) Start exercising - I probably exercised a maximum of three times in 2013. Exercise makes me feel super happy and it has so many benefits, so I'm going to workout 2-3 times a week. Slow and steady wins the race in my opinion

4) Ensure mindfulness -  I have a habit of rushing everything. I want to slow down and learn to enjoy the moment

5) Take a photo everyday - I have downloaded an app which will allow me to treasure my chosen 'photo of the day'. I can look back in 2015 and see what I got up to everyday. There's one rule though - the photo has to be a positive one. Even if I've had a really bad day, I have to find something positive from it

Moving aside from New Year's resolutions, I wanted to show you my Christmas presents: 

Ted Baker Wallet:

I have wanted a Ted Baker wallet for ages. My other half picked the most beautiful wallet (and it even has rose gold detailing!) 

Swarovski earrings


 I also received these beautiful rose gold earrings. These are small enough to wear to work (and they also match my watch)

What are your New Year's resolutions?

What did you get for Christmas?
