A great way to spend a Sunday afternoon in my opinion. The Princess Diaries is one of my top ten book series, and when I first found out there would be not one but two new book set in that world, I could hardly contain myself. Mia Thermopolis is a grown up Tina Belcher in my opinion, and both are my life idols.
Hope you get something good for Christmas before Christmas!
Despite having grown up in the world of modelling, I have never really been big on beauty and make up and all that regular girl stuff. I’ve very lucky to be blessed with hair that does anything I ask of it (and as an African girl, this is even more bizarre) as well as problem free skin and in-fashion eyebrows (I could be wrong, I have been told I have no fashion sense by two of my most trusted friends). So I have never really invested in expensive beauty treatments (not that beauty treatments need to be expensive) or invested a lot my time in my appearance. I realise this probably manifests itself in various issues I have, but besides my fitness I’ve always been fairly happy with the way I look.
Today I thought I would make a list of the beauty items I do ascribe to and that I think are must haves; for the woman who has plenty of time on her hands, but choses instead to watch Bob’s Burgers and read Hello Giggles in her pyjamas. Continue reading Friday Five: Beauty Stuff→
A little overdue with the blog posts since starting my new job, but somehow since starting work I have also moved out of home! Finally felling settled though, so I thought I would put an end to my inadvertent blog hiatus. I’m currently living way south of the river, far away from practically everything, but on the other hand i’m also living with the one person I never thought I’d every live with. A good state of mind for me to be taking stock of, and really interesting to compare to my previous ones also!
Cooking: up a plan for my lessons for the week.
Drinking: Water out of my pink Smash bottle.
Reading: Harley Quinn comics (the original series). Yesterday I read The Lovely Bones, it was… strange.
Wanting: Summer, a single digit sized body, a house of my own.
Looking: at my legs, which are still in full winter mode (this consists of less moisturiser than usual, and a healthy layer of leg hair from wearing stockings. I’m so attractive, I know)
Playing: Prison Architect and The Sims. Though I am trying to limit this because it eats up hours at a time before I realise it.
Deciding: on what route to take to be able to travel from Atwell to Success to Carrington St to Willetton with minimal petrol wastage. A pipe dream, I know.
Wishing: for boy.
Enjoying: having money to be able to actually do things for once.
Waiting: for inspiration to hit in the form of my lesson plans. Years 9 and 11 are easy, year 10 is a massive bitch.
Liking: hearing my cat’s footsteps on the floor, and meowing to be let in. He’s adorable
Wondering: if I should let Tom in, because he has pooped on my bed before. He’s a douche, as well as adorable.
Loving: that my cat loves me, and my housemate buys me lunches/dinners that are both healthy and yummy.
Pondering: if I have enough time to watch the rest of House of Cards this weekend.
Considering: leaving for Dad’s early to cruise by JB Hi Fi.
Watching: Jimmy Pesto Jr and Tina Belcher put together a magic act.
Hoping: that things go back to normal with boy soon.
Marvelling: at my hair’s ability to frizz up purely from the dryer running in the next room.
Needing: oh so many things, of many different ratings.
Smelling: seasame bagels
Wearing: navy blue and white striped dress that looks very “Britain-y” according to one of my colleagues, and panda slippers.
Following: the exploits of Tina, Gene and Louise Belcher.
Noticing: My desk needs a good dusting, and I have yet to brush my teeth today.
Knowing: I need to get my stuff together and sort out a personal timetable for work and other stuff, and plan lessons.
Thinking: about boy, Doctor Who, Robin Hood, idiot brother, lesson planning.
Feeling: lonely, and weird.
Admiring: Tina Belcher. She knows who she is, and makes no apologies for it. And she likes boys’ butts.
Sorting: out my huge amount of crap, though i really cannot be bothered with it.
Buying: household items and Harley Quinn comic on the DC Comics app
Getting: ready to go see my dad for father’s day.
Bookmarking: The Outsiders debate lesson plans
Disliking: having not enough hours in the day, current living circumstances and it’s weirdness, current physique.
Opening: my step dad’s father’s day present to take to him ♥
Giggling: at my/boy’s cat.
Feeling: tired, almost all the time. and a little lonely,
Snacking: on almost nothing nowadays. Though this is mostly because I had a nightmare of boy/housemate finding snack stashes in my room and them kicking me out of the house..
Coveting: A JLo body. Any day now.
Wishing: for things to go back to normal with boy and I
Helping: not much this week, to be perfectly honest. I did make brownies yesterday, which my brother enjoyed.
Hearing: my friend bleaching something in the laundry.
Hope you’re all thinking of the fathers in your life! Love, Andrea
It's useful being top banana in the shock department.
