my week in photos: 12th aug - 19th aug 2012


001: I'm enjoying the last few weeks of the summer break by doing absolutely nothing! I've just been going to work and then returning home and lounging about. I know as soon as September hits, I'm going to be busy with my new course and won't have enough time for guilty pleasures like Pretty Little Liars!

002: I finally splurged and bought the Enrapture Totem Styler! I've used it most days since I got it and I really do love it! I saw it was on a special offer at Argos for just £37.54 which has now unfortunately gone back up to the original price of £75! Amazon are also selling it for just £36 if you're after one, but I know they're selling out like hotcakes! I probably won't review it as everybody seems to have written something about it but I really do love it. It gives various different types of volumnious curls/waves controlled by three different heat settings on the barrel. I was having trouble with the curls dropping after a few hours but I think that was down to a crappy hairspray I was using (Umberto Giannini i'm talking about you!), but I think it's all sorted now due to L'Oreals Elnett hairspray. Thanks to Jayde for the recommendation!

003: I've been talking to somebody absolutely amazing this week and he knows who he is. You know when you begin talking to someone new and you just instantly click? My favourite Pixar film is Finding Nemo and we were quoting bits from it for ages. Then he suggested we watch it together at the same time which was the cutest and most perfect thing ever! It's really strange how someone can make you so happy who you've never met before! He's such a sweetie and bloody gorgeous too! Monkey face ♥ :)

004: Last night, I went to a family party to celebrate my two cousin's 18th and 21st birthday's! It was lovely to catch up with all of my dad's side of the family who I don't get to see that often! The dress I wore is above and is c/o Glamorous, however it unfortunately has a hole in it so I think it arrived like that! :-(

What's everyone been doing with their week? How hot has London been?!
