It's been snowing today, finally! It's actually laying and I love it. Sure, I won't love it at 8am tomorrow when I have to trudge through it on my way to work. No doubt it'll be ice by that point, I'll have my trusty Dr. Martens on though. I wore them today and it was a huge help.
This week I've been getting into Lana Del Rey, something I never thought would happen. I really didn't like her voice and thought she was a bit depressing. She is, but in a good way, if there is such a thing!
My favourite song is Summertime Sadness, it's been stuck in my head all week, that's when you know.
She's so beautiful, but I still prefer how she looks pre-surgery, it's so strange seeing the differences in her face. I'd love to recreate some of her make-up looks, they are really simple but absolutely gorgeous. I've seen a couple of cut-crease make up looks inspired by her style on here.
We've become regulars at the Tickety Boo's pub quiz, this week Kyles family came along, it was a lot of fun. This week we were second last, no wooden spoon for us! Instead it was Kyles brother and his girlfriend who came in last, despite getting a couple of really tough questions right! Everyone had a laugh though which was the main thing.
As usual you can have a peek into my brain and the things I tend to daydream about on my personal Tumblr.
At the moment I'm on a bit of a spending ban, I feel that I've been way too much money recently. Not even on anything in particular (maybe some make up, but not a lot!) and I have no idea where it's all going. I do have a few things lined up to review, so they'll be coming up over the next few days.
I'll probably be 'shopping my stash' more over the next few weeks though. I gots bills!
What are your plans for tomorrow? I'm not entirely sure what Kyle and I are doing, hopefully going to see Die Hard. He hinted that he may have booked tickets already, but I don't really know! It's also a colleagues birthday so we may head out for that. I've got work early on Friday though. Boo.
Speaking of films I went to see Flight this week. It's brilliant, I can't recommend it highly enough. Denzels performance is so compelling, and I can see why he's up for an Oscar for this role. It's produced and directed by Rober Zemeckis (Back to the Future, Cast Away, The Frighteners, Contact, Forrest Gump). There have been lots of very harsh reviews about this film, and I don't agree with a single one. Sure, I am pretty easily pleased when it comes to films, but still. I enjoyed it, it was exciting, terrifying, and emotional all at the same time. I suck at doing plot summaries, so here's the IMDb page.
I also enjoyed the season premier of The Walking Dead, I'd been missing it so much! Do you watch it?
And here's a photo of Sparky - just because he looks very handsome here. Did I mention we found out he's a boy? Oops. We're hoping he doesn't have a complex because of all the "Good girl" and "Aw, such a pretty little girl" comments!
He's so dusty in this photo, haha!

What have you all been up to this week? Is it snowing where you are?
I'm going to be going a giveaway when I reach 100 followers, so keep an eye out for that over the next few weeks or so! Excited :)
