I know it's not seasonally appropriate, but I felt this guy needed a moment in the spotlight! I attended a craft day this weekend with other Brownie leaders and we came away with a ton of ideas for Christmas and Easter decorations for the girls to make. I definitely have a secret fondness for crafts - give me a pritt-stick and some sequins and I'm happy (this will definitely be archived in the 'things not to admit on the internet' folder).
The more time that goes on, the more shocked I become that I ever had the courage to enter this competition, let alone the potential to become short-listed. Sending out bags of gratitude for anyone who has voted for me already - I'm so thankful! And if anyone wants to go and see the five short-listed entries or vote for your favourite, just click here. All you need is your reading glasses and an e-mail address.
I'm such a sucker for seasonal foods. Only yesterday I squealed in the middle of Wilkinson's after seeing Lindt teddy-bears for Christmas, so you can imagine my excitement over this one! Definitely glad they only changed the shape though...not sure I could have handled the sacrilege of a pumpkin-flavoured chocolate.
I've been bringing out my inner Laurence-Llewelyn Bowen and redoing my bedroom gradually, and after refusing to pay £50 for a simple stand-alone mirror from Argos, was pleasantly surprised to find this one for a tenner in Home Bargains! That place is a student's mecca I tell you.
Whenever my skin rebels I try to eat more fruit - it definitely works, but then I get complacent and fall off the fruity bandwagon. I'm hoping my blueberry facemask will cover for my laziness and do the job instead!

Ooh Reeses! I think I would die from sugar overload if I lived in America - they have the best sweets ever!

Good luck in the competition too by the way, off to vote for you now xx

I'm so glad you mentioned the Reeses! I saw them the other day but thought they would be pumpkin flavoured (my friend once got me a pumpkin flavoured Kit Kat from Japan so I was completely convinced this would be the same) but now I may need to venture back out to find them!

That is the most amazing looking chocolate ever...I love the Reeses peanut butter cups! The blueberry mask sounds amazing- did you make it yourself? If so, do share :)

Good luck for the comp!

A spooky week? Sounds interesting :) And yes, pumkin flavoured chocolate sounds a bit too interesting, haha, but who knows!
