Love the little things #4
Ahh, it’s the Friday post where I link up with But why mummy why for ‘Love the little things’. Lets all grab a tea & have a catch up: I can guarantee you I’ll only get a couple of sips of my warm beverage before ‘Zee’ mini monster decides there are far more pressing matters for me to contend with & divert my attention away…..
- + Having lunch made for you: there’s nothing like a lunch your mum makes you, am I right?
- – The constant chat: you both can’t help having a little (childfree) natter. A lovely, wonderful bonding occasion, but alas I cannot multi task. Therefore I either (1) talk= no productivity, or (2) I find myself saying ‘I’m sorry mum, but I really need to get this done’= feel guilty & sad, as I do love my girlie time with ‘Ma.
Sesame street: Bears’ new obsession this week. Ironically the episode that’s on repeated (thanks tiddlers tv,) is about bananas!! (Let’s be clear I’m not a Banana fanatic: ‘cool bananas’ is a phrase!).
On a positive note, bear is kinda in love with eating bananas now so that’s a #win! (Do you think I mentioned Bananas enough just now?!)
I’m so happy that my blog is getting some attention & receiving lovely comments. Reading them really boosts my confidence, & it’s so nice getting to know other bloggers better: I feel like y’all are my new BFF’s (too much cheese there?). It’s really touching that people take the time & effort to visit ‘lil old me, but then also leave me a little message (again, sorry. Am I over doing the cheesiness here?). I just wish I had the ability to respond sooner. So a massive thank you!
I’ve also been doing the rounds of “britmumslive’ official linky reading. I’m going to work on mine over the weekend & I’ll ‘holla when it’s live so y’all can take a glance! (I’m going to try & make it quite unique, hopefully!).
The sesame street theme tune will not leave my head! I won’t inflict that upon your ears, but instead i found this. Now i’m
madly slightly in love with Will.I.Am (he’s just way too kool for skool) & this Sesame street jam of his is just totally awesome! Never enough cheesiness on a Friday my friends!
May I refer you back to my opening paragraph: painting & decorating occurrence within the cool bananas household? So whilst my Instagram feed is rapidly filling up with beautiful Easter bonnets & delightfully yummy looking treats from the bloggersphere (really putting my lack of Easter spirit to shame), not much ‘making’ has come to pass this week for me. But I have made a start to my new ‘blog’ series ‘Wellness in motion’ & published my first post on it! It’s not all about fitness & my snot coloured green juices (honestly!) so please check it out-I want to create a way for ‘health’ to be a positive, stylish & fun prospect to the masses (I may as well throw in world peace to my mission!).
& I think I made someone smile this week by serenading them with the sweet tones of the ‘black eyed peas’ over a twitter chat (*wink wink* you know who you are!)
I’ve been flirting with my new no.7 Beautifully matte foundation.
For the last 10 years I’ve suffered with acne, & this has left me with some bothersome scarring. Urgh, acne is the bane of my life. Luckily, I’m under the care of the leading acne expert in the UK (prof Chu). I undergo a couple of different treatments every few months. The purpose of which are to (1) prevent acne flare-ups (2) treat the scars: a laser treatment (that’s almost entirely pain free) & a ‘dermaroller’ (that is excruciating). I’m not a huge make up fan & hate the cakey look, but some days I just need a little bit of encouragement & this foundation has been marvelous! The added bonus is I used my boots points & treated myself without spending any pennies! Ooh I do love a good deal! (mr cool bananas is ecstatic that he didn’t have to splash out, ahem, scrooge!)
There is saying that: ‘all the fun stuff happens outside of your comfort zone’.
I’ve tried to embrace this, & I’ve pushed myself beyond where I’m cozy: I journeyed into London & attended a couple of ‘press launch’ type events. Whilst I felt like a bag of nerves & probably looked like a dear caught in headlights, I felt very chuffed for putting myself ‘out there’. Have you done anything lately that’s scared you & pushed you past you’re usual safety barrier?
Hope you all have a sunny weekend!
