The BEST Chocolate Cookies

On Friday evening, I indulged in some 'me-time' before G came home from work. I plonked myself in bed, caught up on some blog reading and munched on possibly the best chocolate cookie I've ever had. It was soft, just how I like my cookies, and had the perfect amount of white chocolate chunks. Next time you're in Tesco, don't forget to pick up a packet. You won't regret it. 

Feeling Myself Again

For the past two weeks or so, I've been riddled with this awful cold and tickly cough. According to the news, it's the hardest one to get rid of! However, it *seems* to be slowly easing off, I haven't been spending as much time coughing and am starting to feel like I'm back to normal again (or at least I'm getting there). I think my Saturday spent in bed had something to do with it!

Beautiful Movies

One guess as to which movie could be entering this week's wonderful Wednesday?

La La Land of course! I think I was always going to love it, regardless of the story line, because Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling are two of my favourite actors and like I said in my Instagram post, when those two come together magical things happen!

The film is just so beautiful and I would urge you all to go see it.

Warm Showers

Not just any warm shower. The kind of shower that lifts your sleepy head and makes you say 'aaaah'. The kind of shower that can only be enjoyed before sunrise. The kind of shower that strokes your icy skin with a gentle stream of warm water. Best feeling EVER

A Determined G

I've mentioned before, probably a lot actually, that G is very particular with his food. Whilst he may have more stamina than me, he's determined to get fit and eat more healthy foods this year. I've been receiving daily WhatsApp snaps of his healthy lunches and he's been hitting the gym with some work buddies.

Then yesterday evening, he surprised me with a little date night dinner at a new Turkish restaurant in town. The food was absolutely delicious and it was so lovely to see G venture out of his comfort zone for a bit.

I'm so very proud of you poppet!

And cut! That's all from me this week lovely ones, now it's your turn! What's been making you smile from ear to ear? Have you had any 'aaaah' moments this week? Share your #wonderfulwednesday moments with myself and the rest of the gang* on Twitter

  1. All the love for Harry Potter references. You had me at accio! This is such a lovely list. I'm so glad you are feeling better, I'm fairly certain that chocolate cookies are actually medicine when they're that good. This makes me want to see La La Land even more. Emma Stone is one of my favourite actresses ever!
    Have a wonderful week darling xx

  2. I love these posts El! La La Land is such a good film, I'd definitely go and see it again. I loved it! Hope the next week is just as wonderful for you.

    Glad you're feeling like yourself again, nothing worse than an ongoing cold that just won't budge!

  4. A good early morning hot shower is the perfect way to wake up sometimes!
