Blooming El



Happy Wednesday to you all! I hope you are well and are adjusting to the colder weather!

I have settled in very nicely to the new season, donning my pyjamas as quickly as possible when I come home from work, curling up in bed or on the sofa and indulging in a chocolate treat or two (okay twenty).

The past week has been a bit of a mixture - good, bad, sad and exciting - but in a bid to try and make myself feel a little better, I'm rounding up all the things that have been making my heart flutter, my lips curve and my eyes sparkle...


Bubble Baths

On my way home last week, I stopped off at Sainsburys to get some new deodorant (oh the excitement) and amid the overpriced bottles of freshness, I spotted some bath soak on offer. I'd never seen nor heard of the brand before but the packaging was cute and it mentioned sea minerals so I popped a bottle in my basket!

That night, instead of jumping straight into bed, I had a bubble bath and read my book. It was sehr relaxing and I loved every minute of it. I think I'm going to attempt to have a bubble bath once a week. My shoulders, neck and throat have felt so tense and swollen lately, I have a feeling it's stress/worry/what am I doing with my life related so I'm hoping a bubble bath will help relax my muscles and relieve the tension.

30% off at Dorothy Perkins

For as long as I can remember, I have wanted to own a fluffy gilet but could never find one I liked. Whilst in town on Saturday, I popped in to Dorothy Perkins after spotting their 30% off sign in the window. I picked up a few tops and was heading to the changing rooms when I spotted this fluffy little number hanging in the petite section. After snapping a pic in the changing rooms and consulting the girls via whatsapp, I decided that I just had to get it! Thank you Dotty P's for your wonderful discount.


On Monday evening I finished Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. I have all of the HP books and am making it my mission to finish them before New Year (I'm one of those terrible people who has only seen the films). I love getting lost in the magical wizarding world!

Toad in the Hole

Ahhhhhhhhhhh my favourite dish of all time. Big fat sausages nestled in a giant yorkshire, accompanied by parsnips, carrots, sweetcorn and a large helping of gravy. Please G, can I have some more?

Paying off our NYC trip

Okay, so it's not *quite* payed off but I have put money towards the trip this month! It's a massive achievement for me because well, you know how some people have money and some people don't? Yeah, I don't have a lot and always feel bad because G pays for everything. However, I am paying for my part of the trip and it feels so good to be able to contribute.

That's all for this week folks! How has your week been? Don't forget to share your #wonderfulwednesday moments with myself and the rest of the gang* on Twitter

  1. It's definitely the right time of year for a good long soak in the tub! Have a lovely week H X

  2. Oooh, NYC sounds exciting! When is your trip? My husband and I went to NYC last Christmas and had a great time.

    I'm also attempting to read all the HP books before the end of the year, although I have read them before, I just want to read them one more time before I donate the books to the library.

    Happy Thursday to you!

    I hope you have a wonderful rest of the week!

  3. I always feel like I'm doing baths wrong - I never give them enough time to get deep enough and I cannot switch my brain off when I'm in one! Sounds like you did a much better job and I hope that it helped with the stress and you're feeling a lot better now.
    Enjoy the rest of your weekend :) C x
