Brown Paper Packages Tied Up With String

A happy Sunday morning to you all, I looooove Sundays, favourite day of the week. I use my lazy day to catch up on my housework, watch the F1, cook a lovely roast dinner, its free range corn fed chicken this week, yummers! and just generally enjoy a day in my flat where I don't have to worry about getting dressed or putting on makeup, no one wants to be bothered with all that jazz every single day of the week. Today I thought I would share a few of my favourite things, stuff i've been loving lately. But first I would like to say how amazed I am with bloggers that manage to keep posting on a regular basis. I have a list of 37 posts/ideas that I want to blog about but am not disciplined enough/available enough to sit down and put my fingers to the keyboard. So I take my virtual hat off to you all, mega props for being so awesome!

Moving on to the good stuff... or the slightly boring stuff once you read what's coming first. New contact lenses, I have struggled for about 3 years with finding contacts that work for me because my eyes are and I quote my optician here "a hostile environment for contact lenses". Basically my tears disperse too quickly, which means they're too dry for most contact lenses. But i'm trial-ing a new type and they are amazing! So if you suffer with dry eyes, check out the Oasys lenses. 

Yep that's right, exciting stuff here at AGirlWrites, haha! Moving on, who watches Downton Abbey?? I dooooooo.  I was ill about a month ago and decided to start watching my Downton dvds, I'd asked for them for christmas three years in a row and never watched them. My how that has changed, as I was saying, I was off work ill for about a week and got so addicted to the show that I watched every single episode there has ever been in about 4 days. I'm so addicted right now, I literally went through cold turkey once I'd watched them all, especially give the HUGE cliff hanger at the end. I'm counting down the days for the next series. 


Incidentally in case you were wondering, Tom is my favourite character, very very closely followed by the Dowager Countess, Dame Maggie Smith is just absolutely fantastic. If you've not watched it, I really urge you to, the first 3 or so episodes are a bit slow, but after that it's just completely brilliant the whole way through.
Now I have to RAVE about the new Revlon Nearly Naked Foundation and Powder. I have wanted to try it ever since I saw Missglamorazzi's video review. I really like light foundations because I don't usually need a heavy coverage. I get occasional spots/blemishes and a little acne scarring around my jawline but nothing that requires something like Estee Lauder's Double Wear. The Nearly Naked is a great little foundation for everyday wear and the powder is just beautiful. I never really got on with the Colourstay foundation from Revlon, so i'm really pleased it works so well for me. I got mine in Superdrug for the super cheap price of £8.99 for the foundation and £7.99 for the powder. Shade-wise I wear Nude in the foundation and Light in the powder. My favourite all time foundation is the MUFE HD one but it's very expensive and hard to get hold of in the UK, this is a really great alternative and one I can already tell i'm going to keep repurchasing.

Finally lets talk about exercise, trust me I'm the last person I thought would ever be so positive and happy about working out. My friend Charlotte and I recently joined our local Virgin Active gym and i'm so pleased that i'm doing so well with it. It took me a few weeks to get into a rhythm but now I love it. I've increased the time I can work out for and actually enjoy doing it. One thing I have learnt is that you can do a LOT more than you think you can, work through the pain barrier and you will surprise yourself.


That's it from me for today, other than a few honorable mentions: earl grey tea, Twlight Breaking Dawn Part 2 dvd, cross stitch, cheesestrings, baking, Wreck It Ralph, drinking lots of water, Cineworld Unlimited cards and shopping. 

Have a great day!
