This week I’m watching…

The new Bake Off. And I think I kinda like it. Like a lot of people, I was really unsure about its move from the BBC, but I think it’s stayed vaguely the same. I was very worried about Sandi Toksvig and Noel Fielding as I’m really not a fan of either, but they weren’t so bad.

Shame about the adverts though, eh?

This week I’m looking forward to…

Parliament being back in session. I know, what a super cool thing to say.

I hate when Parliament is in recess. My job barely fills the day as it is, Parliament being in recess makes everything worse. And I hate how quiet the whole of the Parliamentary estate is when its recess too. I like the hustle and bustle of the MPs being there.

Plus, it’s been dress down day for six weeks now and I’m so bored of struggling with finding something to wear. I’m ready for my office clothes to be back now, thanks.

This week I’m kicking myself…

Because I used retinol too much, thinking I’d built up enough of a tolerance and it’s obliterated┬ámy skin. I’ve got good old retinol burn and I look like I’ve been sat on a beach for far too long. My make is constantly peeling too. I’ve been slathering myself in moisturiser. It’s safe to say I’ve learnt my lesson. Always build up a tolerance when using retinol, folks.

This week I’m baking…

A stout cake. I had one once in Caravan in Kings Cross and I’ve honestly thought about it ever since. I’ve been thinking about making one for a while and finally got around to doing it. The recipe will be up on my blog later this week, so keep an eye out for that.

This week I’m reading…

Katie’s post on effortless waves. It’s a hairstyle I’ve always wanted to do but have never managed with my unruly mop. I’ll have to get some practice in.

Abbie’s post on her blogging fuck budget. She summed up a lot of how I feel about blogging and it’s nice to see someone else put my feelings into words for me!

Laura’s post on where she wants to see in the UK. I agree with a few of them and also need to get them ticked off my list!

This week I’m grateful for…

Payday. I swear August was actually about 60 days long. I thought that money was never going to find its way into my bank account. Plus I had one of those months where I kept breaking things (goodbye Bobbi Brown powder) and I had to keep replacing them.

This week I’m sick of…

Hair dye. I have dyed my hair about fourteen thousand times this week and it’s all because I’m going grey far too early. I wanted to add a bit of colour in my hair before I get myself a super serious job, but it’s not going well. My hair still smells like hair stripper too. Yum.
