001: Played on the Wii for the first time since January the other day. It's impossible to beat my Sister at it.. she's just toooo good! Really need to get back into the Wii fit (board) too. It really made me lose a few pounds after Christmas but I just haven't bothered with it since. There's something more exciting about riding an non-existent bike than what there is riding a real one! 

002: Attempted to start the 30 day shred this week. Okay, so I passed level 1 and was all ready to carry level 1 on for another 9 days, until I woke up the next day with the most achy pain in my legs ever, so I haven't bothered with it since! Me and my Mum got measured and weighed in Boots whilst shopping though. I'm 5'4.6 tall (hahaha) whilst my Mum is 5'8.8. And I weigh two pounds more than she does. Slightly depressing, but I am top heavier in that region so that probably explains it!

003: Treated myself to three new jackets this week. They were all from cheap one off stores in town, but I have seen similar on eBay. I have always been in love with Jessie J's style and have a lot of the same clothes as her. And of course, my new girl crush, Rita Ora who wears similar ones too! I have wanted a printed bomber jacket for ages but one that isn't too puffy. This one is perfect as it's really thin so it's great for the ~chilly summer days~ we're having in the UK right now.

004: Had a 'movie night in' with my Mumma this week which was lovely as everyone else was out. I've only recently become quite close to my Mum. For three years I was in a relationship where I completely devoted myself to that person. Me and my Mum have always had a good relationship. We rarely argue and if we do, we just laugh about it five minutes afterwards, but it's only over the past 2/3 months I have really began to form a strong friendship with her. She has literally been my rock since March 10th and I couldn't say a bigger thank you.

005: Calculated that Monday was my 20th driving lesson. I still haven't sorted out sitting down and studying my theory book, let alone booking the theory test. I'm aiming for September though so I have another three months to really knuckle down!

006: Seen two films this week! The first one was The Five Year Engagement with my Sister, which was ~oh ma god i want this on DVD when it comes out~ good! Kinda made me ~happy sad~ though. Read this post here. Yesterday I saw Abraham Lincoln the vampire hunter with a friend from work and I was pleasantly surprised at how good it was. Vampire films I find are always a hit and miss. I'm an avid fan of Twilight though ^_^

007: I have another giveaway lined up in celebration of rapidly approaching 700 GFC followers and 1000 Twitter followers. All shall be revealed!

008: Thank you for all your comments on my three outfit posts which have been posted this week: Stars & Stripes, Call it what you want and Greyhound. Looking at my statistics, my highest page views are from outfit posts so I am taking a wild guess that that's what the majority of you prefer seeing on ASHLLYD? Let me know below!

    1. I just download them to my computer and then stitch 2 by 2 in photoshop. You could probably do it on Paint or something though!
