The Sunday Post: Afternoon Coffee

This week has to have been one of the most stressful of the year (so far). If you're reading this then chances are I'm not in my usual position on the couch and we're actually in Edinburgh! It's a surprise for the boys birthday and I've been planning it for weeks. A post with lots of details on our trip will be up later next week, but if you have any recommendations of places to go whilst we're here then tweet me! (@hello_october_)

Yesterday the boy and I decided to make the most of the sun and went for a long walk around Brighton - I may have stopped in at Cos, Space NK and Topshop on our way round. es that is my bank balance you can hear weeping. I picked up a few things i'd been uhmmming and ahhing about for a while so I can't wait to report back to you all on those!

We also stopped for Coffee in one of the quietest Starbucks branches in Brighton and just people watched and enjoyed the peace and quiet - such a rare Starbucks experience elsewhere.

I also went a little crazy yesterday and booked a hair cut. I can't even believe I can still spell it it's been so long but it's happening, and after having an inch off last week my hair dresser will be taking of the last inch for me - then I'll stop, I promise!

Links of The Week

Liana Beauty on Caroline Hirons at Libertys - have read it five times now and even sent the link to my mum so she can take notes. Liana also has the most adorable new puppy! Flick to a more recent post and take a look. Warning: the photo of her and said puppy will make you expel a strange "awwwh" noise.

Rachel Phipps Freshly Popped Parsley Butter Popcorn has got me hankerin' for some savoury snackage. Salty popcorn is my all time fav, but I love trying new combinations. I recently discovered the Tyrells Sweet and Salt mix - let's just say it was dangerous and leave it at that.

Anna's filming face - just for the little smiley spoon... One of my all time greatest finds courtesy of Tiger.

Lilys video on school and university was so honest - massive thumbs up from me. I honestly don't think students get enough advice on uni and other options during the earlier stages of higher education and videos like this would have really helped me way back when.

Into The Gloss have reported that there will be a Bumble and Bumble Surf Shampoo and Conditioner to accompany the spray. Excited doesn't quite cover it. My eyes will now be permanently fixed on ITG.

Finally, my lovely friend Gee has is feeling the same madness I am and has changed her hair - safe to say it looks amazing!

So that's it from me this week. I'm not back on home turf until late on Monday, so I'm not sure where my next post will be coming to you from. But I hope you all have an amazing Sunday!

  17. You're in my spot! Haha, I believe that is the exact spot in the exact starbucks I go to do get work done or just quietly have a coffee. Last time I went the barista actually remembered my name and order so I thought it might be time to do something about my starbucks addiction... Hope you had a good shop :)
