Instagram #1 July

Since getting an iPhone I have found Instagram to be one of my favourite apps. It's crazy its free too! I take no end of photos and have enjoyed using the multiple photo apps I've downloaded to change the way they look.
These are photos I instagramed during the month of July:
 Jacket potato and salad. Sloppy text to my bf. 
 Home scampi, chips and peas. Converse love. 
 Walking to the cinema. Front garden love. 
 Coming home from work, rains just minutes from my stop. Parcels and shopping from my Mum.  
 Mum gave me "a bit" of cider. Blue morning skies at the bus stop. 
 My boy bought me this tin <3. Ronnie slept on the bread bin!
Peekaboo! Ronnie enjoying the summer. 
 Models Own collection. Hello rain. 
 Posing. Love these old buildings in my town. 
 Waiting for my Boo. Just chilling with his tongue out.  
 Glitter nails. Angry clouds. 
 Best apple juice in the world. How many stamps?! 
 That days face. Ronnie pulled the tablecloth down to sleep on.  
Lantern. Dixie. 
 Bed cushions. Peachy shoes.  
 Ronnie. Blue skies and white fluffy clouds.  
 My first ever Pop Tart! Picnic in the park with my boy. 
 Bibby peek. New blazer love.

Sunday Summary #27

A really quiet week as had lots of family stuff going on and it has been SO hot! I was only moaning last week at the dire weather and then I was melting in the heat this week. Hated how it just suddenly happened and was so hot and muggy instantly. Thankfully the air con at work is bliss, but its not very good, it takes hours to reach a nice temperature and then by about half three I'll have goosebumps from the cold. This last week of the month has been painful, I've spent so much on silly things this month, one being about £16 on EuroMillions tickets which I doubt I have won a penny on. Then odd bits I've had to spend out on which is frustrating. My lips are still giving me agg and going through good and bad days. Not even thought about the doctors til writing this to be honest. So much else on my plate right now.
Had a rough day Saturday with two lots of bad news, life changing news so treated myself in Superdrug. Been spending a lot of time with my Mum on an exciting project which I hope will take off and I can reveal soon.
Despite my bad news I'm remaining positive as I have so much to look forward to. My birthday is the 20th September, and I'm excited for some reason. After my 21st I wasn't so excited for them and I'll be 24 this year >-< but oddly excited for it already. Shopping with my boy this Friday which I haven't been shopping outside of my town for a while now and looking forward to MAC and Lush particularly.
Accessorize iPhone case. Olympic nails. Few odd toiletries. Revlon Just Bitten Kissable balm in Cherish and Barry M in Teal. Primark blazer. 
I had a refund for Accessorize but did an exchange for the case. I love the heart one I have from there, so nice to hold and eye catching plus fits like a glove. I got a case off eBay from Hong Kong and the quality is so bad and one side is too wide. Definitely learnt my lesson to go for quality. Olympic fever has well and truly got me. I watched the Opening Ceremony and felt so proud. It was amazing seeing Britain's history played out in such an incredible way and had so many goosebumps. I got ready for bed during the flag parade, managed to stay awake for the GB team..and then fell asleep and missed the torch coming into the stadium. Gutted. I planned to do stuff on my nails but never got round to it so maybe while its still on I'll try again to jazz them up. Although I can't currently wear any lip products the Revlon was on offer and I want to try it when I can. I couldn't resist the Barry M nail paint in Teal, it was the last one and I always feel I have to get it if I want it and its the only one! I am so in love with the black blazer from Primark. It was £22 but a good quality fabric with a leopard print inside, gold zips and gold buttons. The back flares out slightly too. My black blazer from years ago is too big now and I've found black is impossible to get lately with only stripes, polka dots, pastel and bright blazers on the high street. This will be perfect for so many things from nights out to work things to funerals and just something light to throw on. With the sunshine out though I'll be sticking to my coral pink blazer.
That's all this week, nothing exciting except keeping cool and going mad for the Olympics! So proud to have it here in London.
Hope you've all had good weeks

Sunday Summary #26

The weeks are going so fast at the moment. I know the summer goes quicker, or so it felt when I was younger but we haven't been having summer weather. My entire week off work has been grey, cloudy and raining quite considerably. Today was the first day that it was blue skies and sunshine, for the entire day. It felt so warm just standing in the sunshine. Had a lazy day with my boyfriend mostly in bed watching re-runs of the Only Way Is Essex. I've watched from the beginning and am unashamedly a huge fan. Since being with me he's heard about it and couldn't understand why Lauren is so disliked or certain things that have happened so I've been educating him. Love the drama that used to go down in the early days, and so weird seeing characters and remembering what I thought of them back then to what I do now. Its starts again tonight which is exciting. Its probably the only tv I watch every episode of.
Spent most of my week off chilling out. My best friend got a sickness bug so I was keeping clear but saw her Friday night for The Amazing Spiderman. I really did enjoy it second time round and so excited my boyfriend has got me into all these Marvel and DC films. Really enjoying my Cineworld Unlimited card, I never used to be a film person, I fidget and I have to be in the mood to watch a film. I get distracted so easily at home or at someone else's. I find it easier in a cinema to watch the film as there's no distractions except a few whispered words. Me and the boy went to see The Dark Knight Rises yesterday WOW. Amazing, I spent all evening thinking about it, pretty certain I dreamt about it, woke during the night thinking about it and then thought today we'll be going again soon. As soon as it finished my boy said he wanted to see it all over again. At nearly three hours long I was amazed that I hardly noticed the time at all. It didn't feel that long at all. I'm very new to the Batman films only having seen the first two in the last month and was blown away at both. The Dark Knight Rises did such a good job of ending it all and tying bits up. I don't know why but I've never taken Anne Hathaway very seriously. She was good in the Devil Wears Prada but Emily Blunt was better, I liked Love and Other Drugs also but more for Jake Gyllenhaal. I can't remember much else she has done  but she's amazing as Catwoman. Feminine but tough. I loved one scene she does with Batman down in the sewers and her last scenes are also epic. Oddly I find Bale's mouth very sexy in the Batman mask...I can't wait to see it again as there is so much to take in. I would highly recommend having seen the previous ones before this as you won't have a scooby what's going on. I had to ask my boy later about certain bits that I wasn't sure of. Very excited for the release of Ted, hoping its good as there is a lot of hype and advertising surrounding it. I've been pretty good this week shopping wise. Just a few bits I've picked up considering I've had seven days to shop I'm impressed.

 Cake baking. Bits to cook for my boyfriend. Making Chicken Tonight with mashed potatoes. New Matalan cushion (front, £2 in the sale!!). My lovely boyfriend bought some american import goodies. My Ronnie.
My first ever Pop Tart!! Goodies from my Mum going to town <3. Using Ronnie on instaframe. 
 Bits from the Range: air dry clay, England themed bows, heart crystals and my favourite sweets. Heart crystals close up. Card making stickers plus animal themed ones for scrapbooking. Christmas card toppers (yes already, but they were 5 for £1 and I'm really into my card making). Big Buddha <3. 
Owl necklace Matalan £6
Looks like a lot and its kind of cheating my Mum getting me some bits but she knows me so well and always gets me some epic finds. I love the Range for craft bits and I went for a storage box to keep my beads in. I love all the little crafty bits I find and I love their homeware section. I love buddhas and I haven't often seen more delicate ones like this, usually the chubby ones. I was hoping to find something in the Matalan sale but most things were size 16 and above. I couldn't resist the owl necklace and the cushion was an absolute bargain at £2! I am gaining too many cushions but I love them and when I move out they'll have more space to sit hopefully other than my bed. My lip is still giving me a lot of hassle but it has calmed down. It has bad and good days currently. I finally managed to wear my Revlon Just Bitten in Passion on Thursday YAY but my lip has been peeling alot. I'm not sure if its because of whatever is wrong or because I'm using cold sore remedies on it occasionally and that's how they get rid of one. I may attempt the doctors this week on my day off, the usual routine is no appointments for a few weeks unless its an emergency. We'll see how this week goes, it isn't as red as it has been.
Hope you've all had good weeks
