The InstaWeek that was #4

What an amazing warm Sunday, perfect for enjoying an indulgent creamy frappucino (can you tell I haven't had my daily Starbucks fix yet...? ) in the sunshine and a light read. I've had quite a few photos go up on my Instagram lately, so here's a quick recap of the InstaWeek that was.
The InstaWeek that was:
It's summer time and if you read This Summer I Shoes Flats, you'll know that I've swapped my high heels for glamorous flats and these beauties from Dune are this season's favorites for me // Colouring books for grown ups make studying FUN // Lovely refreshing strawberry lemonade from Starbucks US - I so wish we could get that here in the UK // A nice little surprise from Him Indoors, a huge bunch of dried lavender that makes the house smell like Provence // I started the 7 day juice challenge, only having smoothies and juice for 7 days - how difficult can that be... well stay tuned, because I'm doing a post about it in a few weeks // Girls night in with my best beauty pals // After month's of waiting I finally started testing my Ole Henriksen Truth range, so exciting! // Great night at the cinema watching Maleficent, envying those cheekbones // This monster arachnoid invaded my bedroom and with no husband to save me I did sleep in the guest room... yep... 

Highlights this week:
- I published my 300th post on the blog - amazing how time flies, and soon I've got the first anniversary coming up too.
- Packing and preparing for my mini adventure for the next few weeks

I've have to take a few days break from the blog since I'll be away for the next week, but I'll post regularly on my Instagram, so don't forget to check in every now and then. I'll be back again on June 18 and until then I hope you have a brilliant week and see you soon! Xx

  14. I love these Instagram posts, I always think they're so interesting to read and make a change from written weekly updates or similar posts. I see you have the Origins Drink Up Intensive mask, I recently got it and find it so lovely and hydrating, definitely going to need another bottle soon!

    1. As much as I hate spiders I would never kill one, which is a bit of a problem when Him Indoors isn't around...
