Nail Polish & Cookbooks?

Thursdays are mine and Mrs J's (one of the besties) dedicated Frankie's breakfast and girly shopping day. And last week we decided it had been far too long since our last wander round TKMaxx. 
So after happily munching down Pancakes with syrup and bacon (I'm never going to lose weight!) and gossiping like we haven't seen each other in an age, we had by the way just two days before for coffee! We headed over to our local TKMaxx where I couldn't resist buying a few goodies. 

March's Elle magazine is a Comic Relief special and just £2.99, it was an easy purchase decision to make as its a good cause, while the Nail Inc polishes were just £3.99 each and just screamed bargain buy. They had a ton of different polishes on the shelves and it was mighty difficult to decide which ones to take home, it literally took me 1/2 hr to decide (Mrs J can vouch for this as she ended up walking off bored and leaving me too it!). I did however manage to stamp down my urge to take them all home and whittle it down to just 4 polishes.

International Fanworks Day.

Today's post is something alittle different, I thought I'd share with you a few of my favorite fandoms, ships and OTP's (one true pairings) to celebrate International Fanworks Day. 

I've always loved reading, since I was a little girl it's been my way to escape my troubles and stresses. Every free minute I have tends to be spent fangirling over one ship or another and when I'm not reading or watching videos of them, I'm writing my own drabbles about them. There is no better feeling than that of pouring my thoughts and feeling into a story and then have someone love what I've written... it's also one of the scariest as well.

The waiting game and changes afoot..

I'd love to say I'm a patience person but I'm not and the 10 working days wait for my TMA results drives me crazy every time without fault. So while I try not to pull my hair out I've been having a tinker round with my blog design. No major changes really I've jazzed it up abit, changed the font and colours, added an Instagram widget, although there had been one kinda big change.. Have you guessed it... course you have I've changed my blog title! 

I've not been totally happy with it for the last few months, I've been wanting something alittle more personal that gives me more freedom and inspiration, while also reflecting me just that little bit more and I'm quite happy with it, well for now at least. 

I'm also planning to branch out abit where topics are concerned as I'm much more comfortable sharing parts of my personal life with you all now, of course there are things I won't share  Mr H got me a Kitchenaid Mixer for Christmas that I've been dreaming about purchasing for years. 

I've also finally got the hang of using my bright and shiny new cooker, so between that and the fact that this beauty is just too damn pretty to stand neglected on the worktop, I've promised myself I'll bake at least once a week so you can expect plenty of baking and recipe posts in the future. 

If you didn't already know Memebox decided last month to no longer ship internationally so sadly that means no more Memebox beauty boxes to review. I do however have quite the stock pile of goodies I need to try and review so I'm also hoping to share more of my product reviews.

Our gardens (front and back) are also going to be undergoing changes this winter/spring, I have so many plans the first few are to move the veggie plot, add more edible plants into the flower borders and maybe plant some more fruiting trees. First things first though we have to have a good sort out inside and out and fill the 8 tonne skip that's sat on our drive.

Before I get started on all that though I think I'm going to make a brew.
