Five Things & Five Blogs I Love Friday | 2015 Edition #5

Happy Friday, we made it to the weekend! I'm going to be puppy-sitting again, or rather the puppy is going to be sitting on me as I try to research an essay and eat a lot of cake. But I get to stay inside and keep warm, so that's always a good thing! 

Hotel Chocolat
They got in touch this week asking if I'd like to send a box of chocolates to a blogger friend (which I said YES that would be amazing & I picked the beautiful Carly) and they very kindly sent a box my way too. How cute are all these little hearts? And I can confirm they taste even better than they look!

Good Reading Months. 
I made a good dent in my to-be-read pile by reading 15 books this month and I've done a little run-down on my book blog here.

Mac & Cheese. 
It's all I want to eat right now! 

I looked out of the window yesterday and outside looked like a snow globe. It was magical.

Oh how I'm looking forward to my Saturday morning lie in tomorrow. I might even migrate my duvet to the sofa and work from there for the day instead of at my desk. I'm all about the comfort right now.

  10. Ooh chocolate is always a good idea! I see that some brands are already getting ready for Valentine's Day!

I should probably get on that! -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey's
