Week in photographs # 26

Sunday, June 23, 2013

My week has consisted of: apps, comfort food, slacking on exercising, lots of sale shopping, getting a First for my degree and being ill. 

Well, it has been on interesting week - I will start with the main thing which is... I got a First for my Psychology (Bsc, Hons) degree! I am really happy! I got my result on Tuesday this week and I was so nervous leading up to the day. If you don't know, there are different grades for degrees such as 2:3, 2:2, 2:1 and a First - a First is the highest you can get. I received a couple of balloons and a bottle of champagne and a card from my parents. My friends/neighbours also got me a card and a bottle of Rose wine. I also received a cute money box saying 'shoe fund' from my auntie with some money. I am a very happy heather! 

Also this week I have been ill - I have had a horrible cold (which I still have) and a viral throat infection - typical that I had it when it was results day! So I have been slacking on my Jillian Michaels 30 day shred but I have been ill (that's my excuse). I have been comfort eating too (naughty, naughty, I know). The main thing I have been loving, apart from cheesy pasta, is the new Ben and Jerrys Core Peanut Butter Me Up Ice Cream - LOVE IT! It is half vanilla, half peanut butter ice cream with raspberry jam and peanut butter caps *heaven*. 

Sale shopping has taken up a lot of my week too - almost everywhere is having a start of summer/mid season sale on. I have bought some bits from H&M, The Body Shop, Topshop and House of Fraser as you can see from the photographs above. The blue H&M nail polish is called 'Blue My Mind' and I think it is a dupe for Nails Inc 'Baker Street'. There will be some sale haul posts coming soon from Zara, The Body Shop, House of Fraser and maybe Etsy. Oh and I also won a Glamour Magazine competition this week - I won the Sleek Oh So Special Eyeshadow Palette, love it. Get on the House of Fraser, Debenhams or Harrods websites for amazing makeup/beauty sales!

My favourite things this week: The photograph app from A Beautiful Mess (I highly recommend the app and their website/blog). I also love the Dumb Ways To Die app too. My favourite song of the week has to be 'Diana Young' from Vampire Weekend - I cannot stop listening to it! My favourite tv shows this week have been: The White Queen (bbc), Da Vinci's Demons, Benidorm (available on youtube) and The Simpsons! Favourite book this week - Miranda Hart, is it just me? - highly recommend it!

I hope everyone had a great week and don't forget to enter my international giveaway - it ends soon! x
