SIX ON SUNDAY #1

sixonsundaybanner

I thought I’d try something new with my Sunday posts, Sunday Sounds wasn’t too successful but I loved posting my favourite songs of the week so I thought I’d incorporate it into a different kind of post. Six on Sunday will feature six things that I’ve been loving throughout the week, including my favourite song, TV programme, blog, make up item and I’m leaving the remaining spots open for anything that’s been added to my wishlist or if I do something fun in the week that I think you’d be interested in. Hope this kind of post is interesting to read, let me know what you think.

My favourite song of the week has to be Lana Del Rey’s National Anthem, I’ve had it stuck in my head for days! It has such a good tune and her voice is obviously as enchanting as always. I love how it’s kind of a big mish mash of sounds and singing styles – exactly the kind of thing that I look for in music.

You can buy Lana Del Rey’s album, Born To Die here or download it from iTunes here.

This week I have really got into watching series 6 of Skins, I wasn’t keen on this group of people in series 5 so it’s quite surprising that I’ve been glued to my laptop catching up with the current episodes. It seems a lot darker than previous series’ there isn’t as much humour as there usually is, which I’m really enjoying (That makes me sound like a barrel of laughs doesn’t it!). My favourite character is probably Nick, there’s something special there I think. Obviously he doesn’t have a patch on Cook from series 3/4 – I adored him, and thought he was a really well written character but this new bunch are growing on me. If you haven’t given Skins a go this series I’d really recommend it, I can’t wait for the new episode tomorrow!

Skins is on E4 Mondays at 10pm and you can catch up with the series on 4OD.

MAC Cream Colour Base Virgin Isle

Every single day this week I have worn MAC’s Virgin Isle Cream Colour Base on my cheeks, and sometimes on my lips as well! It is a lovely product, the perfect coral/orange shade for spring time and the formula is exquisite too. It really brightens up my pale complexion and it’s a joy to work with. There will be a more in-depth post on this product up at some point this week.

Virgin Isle is a Pro only shade but the other Cream Colour Bases are available from the MAC website.

I was casually browsing Etsy the other night when I came across A Little Rummage and it was love at first sight. Animals, anchors, cute fabric, bunting… all the best things in the world made into affordable hand made jewels!   I can’t wait until I have some spare cash so that I can purchase one of the necklaces, they are so cute and I definitely need another animal themed piece of jewellery to add to the collection menagerie.

Yep, it’s time for a Gracie update. She was 5 months old yesterday, it doesn’t seem possible that it’s been 5 months since she was born! There have been a few ups and downs along the way but she is perfect, so cute and cheeky and dribbly (that ones not so good!). She is starting to recognise people now and smiles at you when you look at her or talk to her, she likes grabbing things and is starting to stand when supported. She is also getting really big, her legs are so long now – she definitely doesn’t take after her sister, and it won’t be long until she is crawling about I’m sure! She has the biggest blue eyes I’ve ever seen, and we’re not sure where they came from – she’s in the mystery eye colour club like me! She is definitely the cutest baby ever.

Gracie is my sister so I doubt my mum will let you buy her ; )
Also she hates having her picture taken so sorry about the blurry images!

My first blog of the week goes to Milly’s blog Mini Adventures. I’ve been reading Milly’s blog for a while now and it is a gem, she has great style and always posts about really interesting things. She also has an excellent music taste! I particularly enjoyed this post on fairy tale inspired fashion, fabulous! Definitely worth checking out her blog if you want something a little different to the mainstream.

  5. Ahhhhhh this makes me so happy! ^_^ A really lovely surprise to wake up to on a (slightly hungover) Sunday morning! Thankyou so much :)

    I've been rubbish at keeping up with Skins, I actually quite enjoyed S5 but what happened in the second episode of this one just annoyed me too much, as I was a bit of a 'shipper' :( I will eventually watch it some more though, I think, but it definitely isn't as good as the early seasons. x

    1. You are most welcome lovely! Keep up the good blog!

      It's nowhere near as good as series 1 and 2 is it? But I've become obsessed with it now! No going back! xx

  11. Skins just makes me mad now, not even sure why, but it just isnt the *same* as the first series... (as in I know it isnt the same, and isnt meant to be, but it just doesnt work really, lost the shock factor!) but then I guess some things dont get better with age! (just like milk and biscuits!)
    Anyway.... i like the new way of doing the sunday posts! And well done to milly, most deserved!!

    1. I know what you mean, maybe because you were younger when the first series was on? I feel disconnected from the characters now because I have nothing in common with them, but I loved the first set of characters and could totally relate!

      And thank you lovely xx

  14. Really liked this post, keep them coming!
    My husband mocks me for still watching Skins; he says I'm too old for it now haha. I found last series quite dull but I agree that this series is much better. It seems like they realised they needed to amp it up a bit. Needs more Alo though :D
