A few things lately . . .

I have been loving all the Instagram and picture collage posts that have been floating around recently. So, here is one of my own featuring a few things from my life lately. . .

* Wanted for so long and finally mine, Barry M Flamingo Pink
* A new friend, Vicky. My sister's new guide dog, beautiful and oh so clever!
* The Sunscreen Song. I heard this on the radio the other day for the first time in an age. Am now making a point of trying to listen to it once a day in a bid to become a better person and all that. It is  weird how every day, a different line seems to resonate . . ! Although, 'You are not as fat as you think you are . . !' always seems to call out to me.
* Run, run, running. I've been a bit slack with this lately but after watching one of the latest videos (This one!) from the Lean Machines, I somehow mustered up a little motivation (oh yeah). Check it out if you need a little push to workout today!
* Why do I always look so glum? I was actually quite happy when I took this pic as I took it to prove my hair is getting longer, finally!!!
* The newest addition to my skincare regime, Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair. Expensive but yes, I fear it is doing something and I will have to find the moolah to repurchase again and again. Hmmm, any cheap dupes out there?
* 500 Days of Summer. I'm not so good with films, I always seem to get distracted but I quite liked this one. I'm sure Zooey Deschanel was playing the same character in it as she played in New Girl but hey, she does it fabulously. I also caught The Proposal with Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds this week. I'm not sure what I'm supposed to think of that one but I watched it to the end and it made me laugh out loud. That is pretty good going in my world.
* My two scents of the last month or so. Intimately, Beckham and Lolavie from Jennifer Aniston. Call me a fan girl but I genuinely love both of these. Have been through four or five Beckhams before and this is the second bottle of Lolavie. Hmmm, think they deserve a post of their own . . !
* My new belt from Monsoon. I love the chain detail and the intricate twists at the front.
* Currently trying to read, Water For Elephants but again, I'm struggling to find the mojo to pick the book up. Once I start reading it, I can't put it down but once it's down, I can't seem to sit myself down long enough to pick it up again. Think I may need to try something else and come back to it. I like to read a book overnight, I always feel too distanced from it when I drag the reading of it out!
* Coconut Oil. I actually got two of these from Holland and Barrett as they were part of the penny sale. So many things I could do with them. Body moisturiser, hair treatment and my new favourite use, lip conditioner.
* Back to the running, I think by this point, I was actually limping. Yes, once again, I got lost looking for the car. I think, somebody up there is taking the mick 'cos I take the car to go running instead of just running there or somewhere closer in the first place!
* Made In Chelsea! I am so obsessed with this, I'm not sure I've ever been so in to a tv show. And yes, I'm Team Jamie, aren't we all?!! Loving, Laura's (Lollipop26)  twitter hash tag #wewantbinkyandjamie
* Love, love, love Creme Cup and my clear gloss from Rimmel combo. It is pretty rare that I now wear anything else on my lips.
* And finally back to the nail polish. Been swooning over it for so long so had to get it on quick. These are my clumsily painted nails in Flamingo Pink!

I hope you are all well and having a good weekend. What's rocking your world at the moment?

I agree, I actually sulked inside when I had to take it off for work the other night.
Thanks for reading, Hun. Hope you're having a good week :)
