This week I’m watching…

Theresa vs Boris: How May Became PM, a littleĀ docudrama which was on BBC2 last week. I usually try to avoid programmes like this because they make me cringe slightly, but I thought this one was actually quite funny. Special props go to the dramatised scene where Gavin Williamson shouts at another MP for not voting for Theresa May during the leadership campaign and make it very clear that he will be next time. God knows if it actually happened, but I hope it did. It would have made Malcolm Tucker proud.

This week I’m loving…

My new shoes from Dorothy Perkins. Just look at them. They’re too pretty. I, like many other people I’m sure, have a habit of buying a few too many pairs of shoes. Especially shoes I’m not sure that I’ll ever wear but can’t resist because they are just too good. These are one of those pairs. I never wear colour, so I’m a little unsure how I’m going to make blush coloured shoes work. I still had to have them though.

This week I’m enjoying…

Getting back into going swimming regularly. I had stopped for a little bit because I wasn’t living in London during the election campaign. The only downside is that because the weather has been so ridiculous, the pool has been full most nights. I’d quite like it to go back to normal and be a little quieter but you can’t always get what you want and all that!

This week I’m eating…

Muller Light Goodies Lemon Yoghurts. I’m 100% addicted to them. Annoyingly – or maybe brilliantly, I haven’t quite decided – they’re always on offer in my local Tesco to buy two packs and that usually means I always have some to hand. I can’t even describe why, but I think they’re the best yoghurts ever.

This week I’m hating…

Whoever the sad act was that hacked Parliamentary e-mails this weekend, which resulted in me having to queue up for ages to get access to my work e-mail back. They still don’t work on my phone, which is good for not working at home, but also bad because now I can’t work at home! I also had to get a lecture from someone from the IT Department about how utterly atrocious my password was. Although, he did have a point. Sorry, Alan!

This week I’m wasting my time by…

Playing Crazy Taxi on my phone. Me and my brother grew up playing this game when it first came out on PS1, which we think was in 2001. He messaged me last week saying it was now an iPhone app and it’s pretty much exactly how it used to be on Play Station. It’s a little bundle of nostalgia whacked onto my phone, and the best thing is that I always just a little bit better than my brother at it. He’s a proper little gamer so it’s probably my only chance to lord it up over him.

This week I’m celebrating…

Getting a teeny pay rise at work. Every little helps right?

This week I’m trying to find…

A new concealer. I currently use Bobbi Brown’s creamy concealer and it’s coming to an end. Although I really quite like it, I do think for the amount you get, it’s just too expensive. I’m always running out, and I think that it’s time to try and find one that a little better value for money. I’m tempted to try NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer, but always open to other suggestions!
