This week #10 - Ralphie's Chubby Cheeks & Orange Scented Things!

Hello and happy Sunday! I hope you've had a wonderful weekend so far. I'm back on the essay writing panic train again (seriously looking forward to the summer holidays already!) but lots of mugs of tea and some good tunes are making it not seem quite so bad! If I'm a little slack with replying to comments this week you'll probably find me under a pile of books with post it notes stuck to my face, but I'll be back on it after Thursday - pinkie promise!
Okay so I'm not exactly sure how much good this is doing my skin, I've only been using it for a couple of weeks but... it smells like oranges!! Yep, that's basically why I'm loving it. It also feels pretty nice, but you know...oranges!
***



As soon as I get home, the fairy lights go on and I'm reaching for my fluffiest pyjamas & slippers. The rainy evenings are no fun when you're packed on to a busy bus (after waiting 40 minutes for one to show up...oh countryside living!), but it always makes me so appreciative to have a warm home and Ralphie cuddles waiting for me. This face is just the best to come home to. Just look at those cheeks...!



***




These songs have featured heavily on my playlist this week. I so wish that I could sing but sadly I can't. I say sadly... I personally love wailing along (because in my head I sound amazing) but I'm not so sure my neighbours appreciate my lack of talent! Can't win 'em all, I suppose!

Are you having a lovely Sunday? 
I hope so!

Love, Jennie
xoxo

  6. Oh I know exactly what you're talking about when you write about those busy rainy days. I actually love it when I'm on a crowded train on the way home (well not that part), but when I get home it's all warm and cosy. Those fairy lights look great! :D So cute. And so does Ralphie haha :)

  23. I work from home so have been known to wear my fluffiest PJ's all day long (one of the perks I have). Ralphie is so cute! I bet he never fails to make you smile.

  26. Aaah, Ralphie is bloody adorable, how sweet!

    I am the /worst/ person with moisturising my face. All the ones I've had tend to smell quite clinical, if that makes any sense, though? So I might try a proper fruity one out, like this Origins one... Maybe if it smells like something I'd wanna eat, I'll end up using it more than four times haha

    have a nice day, lovely! : )

  28. I love love love the smell of that origins gin zing moisturiser but I'm slightly scared it's been a culprit in breaking me out so I've cut back using it. So I've just resorted to sniffing the pot before I go to bed haha.
