Blooming El



Happy hump day! This week is just whizzing by, I can't believe it's time to celebrate the small things already! 

It's still all go go go at work at the minute. I've offered to work in the evenings and at the weekend because we have SO much to do before I head to Wales in a few weeks. I'd rather limit the amount of work I have to worry about whilst I'm supposed to be relaxing!

I'm enjoying the little signs of Autumn still and I can't wait till all the trees are orange, it's just such a pretty time of year! 

Shall we see what else I've been enjoying so far this week?

I had sent a video to one of my best pals Christine, showing off my photos from my photo shoot with Kaye, Christine then replied with a reaction video, to which I said 'I feel like we should facetime' and so we did! (By facetime, I mean Whatsapp video call). 

We hadn't facetimed since we were about 16, so it was pretty fab and took me right back to my teenage years!

Photo Shoot

If you've seen my latest post on Instagram, you'd know that I had my first photo shoot with Kaye on Sunday.

I was super nervous but Kaye soon put me at ease and we were done within half an hour! I'm really pleased with the photos and can't wait to show you the rest of them!

Sound of Rain 

There is something so calming about the sound of rain hitting your window and when you're laying in bed, in the dark, it feels so cosy.

Yorkshire Puddings

G cooked a roast on Monday and I indulged in a trio of Yorkshire puddings, yes three whole bundles of goodness.

A New Read

As I mentioned last week, I finally finished a book that I'd been reading on and off for a few months.

I soon sank my teeth in to a book my Mum lent me, called Lying in Wait and I'm HOOKED. It kind of reminds me of Girl on the Train, which I loved, I can't wait to continue reading and see what happens!

The BEST Advent Calendar

I know, I know, don't shoot me but I haven't mentioned the big C word just yet and this will be worth me!

Casually scrolling through Twitter one evening, I stumbled upon a tweet that mentioned a book advent calendar. Yep, that's right. A BOOK ADVENT CALENDAR. I mean, if there was heaven on earth, it'd probably take the shape of 25 books, all tightly wrapped in cute Christmas paper.

I get paid in two weeks and I know exactly where my money is going.

That's my happy list done and dusted for another week but the celebrations don't stop there! Check out what's been making the rest of the wonder women* happy and if you want to join in yourself, share your little moments with us on Twitter, using #wonderfulwednesday!
