Rock The Week #96

Fashion related (and totally non-fashion related) things that have made my world go round over the last seven days…

Scrabble game

Hello 2014

Happy New Year! Did you have a lovely New Year’s Eve? We spent four blissful days in the Welsh countryside, with nothing but mountains, board games and a log fire for company. This little retreat was just the ticket after such a busy Christmas, and when I’ve managed to edit the photos I’ll be posting all about it!


Yesterday I enjoyed a very impromptu afternoon at the blogger meet arranged by Beky. I only found out about it on Friday and enjoyed an afternoon of shopping, eating and visits to Lush (can’t believe I’ve never been there before!) and the Benefit counter in Boots for some pampering, courtesy of Benebabe Ashton. Full post on the day to follow soon…

Diary doodling

Today I finally got my hands on a new diary and I’m taking great delight in filling it in with coloured pens, marking birthdays, anniversaries and trips we have planned. What can I say? Paperchase is a ridiculously fulfilling experience for me.

This week I’ve been…

Blogging about: My last post from 2013 – a round-up post of outfits worn (and blogged) over the last 12 months.

Listening to: This week I really enjoyed a Radio 4 podcast on the legacy Buffy the Vampire Slayer and strong female characters. Podcasts aren’t normally my thing but as a big Buffy fan in my teens, this was a very interesting listen, so I’d recommend it if you also had a girl crush on B.

Watching: 2013 beauty round-up videos. I’m a sucker for ‘favourites’ videos at the best of times and there have been so many ‘best of 2013’ videos, one of my favourites being this one from Essie Button.

Reading: Catching up on back issues of ELLE magazine and Sunday newspaper supplements from the comfort of our Welsh cottage.

  1. Just taking a break from doing the same thing to my new diary…well I’m covering it and making it all pretty like. My New Years resolution is to be more organised so I’m taking it one step at a time 🙂

  2. I love playing board games, we played a load on NYE and Mark and I THRASHED our friends 😉

  3. Just stumbled upon your blog. As a fellow Bristolian I thought I’d say hi! Love the Scrabble bag, we spent a lot of time over the festive season playing it too. Unfortunately I’m not very good at it!

  4. The blogger meet up sounds like great fun. I am a big fan of Lush.

  5. Your Welsh retreat sounds blissful, especially with Scrabble on the board games menu. Wishing you a belated happy new year.
