Love the little things #1
This week I have started a new book, part of my new years resolutions to read more. It’s called “Y” by Marjorie Celona. It was an impulse by at Tesco for £2 and I didn’t have time to go anywhere else to buy a book but I was desperate to start one. I am only a quarter way through it but it’s fairly good. I am trying to compile a list of books to read for 2014, so if you have any suggestions please comment below!!!
Also this week we are reading, “Whoosh and Chug!” by Sebastien Braun. It’s about a titchy train on a mighty mission, or so it says. Buba loves if I make “choo, choo” noises after every page.
I have to agree with Butwhymummywhy, Grey’s Anatomy was FANTASTIC this week, with it’s premiere episode. Will Chief die or won’t he? Will Callie and Arizona stay together? Oh the drama!!!!! I also have to shout out that it was Revenge’s premiere episode this week too. One that I have sweet indulgences for, and secretly so does Mr. P. lol
My usual mascara while on vacation became a pile of goo in the heat. Left by me, in the sun for too long. Oops. When I went to replace it this week I thought I would branch out and try something new. I am very particular on mascara because my eyes get itchy easily if the brush is made of certain materials. I know, pain in the ass. (ahem) I settled for Lancome’s Virtuose curl mascara. I am in love. I have been using my old brand for so many years but this one has taken it’s place for sure. The brush is light, curved perfect for smaller eyes like mine, and the mascara easily layers over itself for a night out dramatic look, or just a few strokes for a casual day look.
I am a HUGE country music fan, born and raised in American in a small town, it was bound to happen. Even though I have moved to the UK where there is no country music, my heart is still in the country music. This week I have came across Lady Antebellum’s song Compass that came out in November on their album Golden. I love it. So I am bringing a little country music to the UK each week. Watch this space!
I have been making trays and trays of baby food for Missy Moo. I am no chef, but I like to pretend to be. I made this lovely chicken casserole for the whole family. It was perfect to blend for Missy Moo, smash for Buba, and eat with garlic bread for us. Tastes better than it looks, with carrots, parsnips, potatoes, chicken, onions, and garlic!!! Win, win.
I am very honored that the lovely Victoria Welton at www.vevivos.com has listed one of my poems and a link to my blog on the BritMums Poetry and Prose page for Literature Roundups. Check it out! Thank you again Vic.
Enjoyed sharing my “love the little things” with you all this week. Thanks Butwhymummywhy for the awesome linky! Until next week… don’t forget to love the little things!!!!
