Things I'm loving

I've had a few down days lately so I thought I'd cheer myself up by focussing on the things I'm currently loving at the moment. PMA and all that...

A Day at the Office
I realised I hadn't read a book since I was pregnant with Mason, which was 8 months ago (awful of me!) so I got 'Day at the Office' by Matt Dunn on my iPad and I've almost finished it in 3 days. It's about a couple that met at work had a bit of a drunken kiss and don't know how to move it along from there. I had to buy it as it's a story very close to home as that's how me and my boyfriend got together! It's a bit of a Tim and Dawn/ Jim and Pam from the Office kind of story, so if you love that sort of thing, give it a go. (Plus it was only 99p in the kindle store!)

Mac Pro Longwear foundation & Real Techniques Stippling Brush
I went for a make over at the Mac counter recently and I went away with a few goodies including the pro longwear foundation which is now my new favourite foundation! It's 'sllliiiightly' too dark for my natural skin tone but I'm always using fake tan which made it a perfect match. Plus I'm hoping by the time the sun gets here (properly) it will match my skin tone perfectly once I get a little colour. The coverage is brilliant and especially when blended in with my real technique Stippling brush which I now couldn't be without.

Adam Hess
My boyfriend always introduces me to lesser known comedians and he took me to a showcase of the acts that are going to be on the next series of Russel Howards Good News. It was in a lovely small venue with big comfy sofas and candles on the tables. It had a definite jazz club vibe, rather than a dingy bar which is what I was expecting if I'm honest. There were 5 comedians and one that really stood out to me was Adam Hess. He's very quick and a bit silly and he had me in stitches. Follow him on twitter @adamhess1 and you'll get an idea of his jokes. My abs had quite a work out from laughing at him. I'm convinced he's  (bold claim alert!) the next big thing in comedy.

"When I sign a card 'Love Adam', it's more of a command..."

Toni & Guy Cleanse and Nourish
I picked up this Toni and Guy Shampoo and Conditioner for fine hair in the Boots 3 for 2 as my boyfriend needed shampoo anyway (it worked out perfectly, an excellent excuse to try a new shampoo when I didnt need any!)
I'm glad I did as it is excellent. It really gives my hair a proper clean and I don't even need to straighten my hair afterwards to smooth it out. 

Famous Dave's Gold Edition Tanning Mousse
I finally got round to trying Famous Dave Gold Edition Tan and I have to say it's the new love of my life. I'll be doing a proper review soon as it deserves it  ...The review is here but trust me, if you like a dark tan, this is for you! 

Pop Tarts
I popped (hehe) into Asda to pick up some baby stuff for Mason as there were some great offers on and of course I had to get myself a treat. In this case they were Cherry Pop Tarts! I used to eat these loads as a kid, they're really taking me back to being 11 again!

Transatlantically Speaking
While this is a little plug for the would-be in-laws, I do genuinely love it. My boyfirend's uncle lives over in the states and has a podcast that puts us Brits up against the Americans in a challenge where they guess one of our words/products and we do the same to them. Have a listen, you'll be amazed how many you get wrong right!
