FAKE BAKE ‘THE FACE’* – REVIEW

Morning all!

Now, as you may or may not have noticed, we’re finally reaching the light at the end of the tunnel that is summer, and with summer comes the obligatory pastels, short shorts and tanned limbs. However, you may have previously read that whilst I’m a fan of gradual tanning lotions such as Garnier and Dove, and whilst I’m also a little in love with L’Oreal’s True Match foundation, I don’t tend to go in for foundations or fake tan on my face during the warmer months, instead opting to go for a tinted moisturiser so as not to get too ‘bogged down’ in the heat.

VALENTINE’S CHEAP DATE NIGHT IDEAS

So here we are again, another cheap Valentine’s guide (I won’t tell him if you don’t…) I wanted to try and think of some dates we could go on on a budget of £20 each, as I’ve seen so many restaurants offering ‘AMAZING, STUPENDOUS VALENTINE’S 3 COURSE MEAL AT ONLY £47 PER PERSON’ which I personally believe to be ridiculous! (Especially when they normally charge £15 for the same thing).

Realistically, we might stay in on Valentine’s. I’m kind of tempted not to go out, as I don’t see why you should pay so much money to be surrounded by waiters who don’t want to be serving so many loved-up couples, with couples filled with so much expectation. My idea of a good Valentine’s is cooking together, lighting some candles, reminiscing on your relationship and getting cosy. You’re with them because you love them, so Valentine’s to me is the perfect excuse to be selfish and not share your other half with anyone else.

BURGER THURSDAYS – BYRON BURGER

Eating burgers. On Thursdays. Could there be a better set up? (Apart from, obviously, having them every day instead…)

So a few posts ago, when I filled you all in on the #OxMeet, I mentioned meeting up with Hannah from the rather fabulous Pinafores and Pies before heading on to Wagamama’s to meet everyone. Having chatted non-stop, we figured we must meet up again and continue where we left off, and what better way to do that, than over burgers?

THE WANDER-LIST

I genuinely think I was born to travel. My plan is to work my socks off for the next two years (whilst undergoing Invisalign treatment), and then take off for the mother of all adventures. Where’s on my list? So many places that I most definitely want to share with you – but that’s a post for a different day.

However, until then, I have a whole 22 days per year to take off from my office job, and I plan to fill them with as many mini-trips as possible. My first is coming up in about six weeks (eeeee!!) when I’m taking off to a villa with friends in Spain, but what’s after that??
