#4 Weekly Favourites

Hey there!

It's the end of yet another busy week and the beginning of another - full of last minute revision at unearthly hours of the morning, a bunch of important exams, a mini shopping haul and the start of a well deserved half term! 

What I've Been Eating
For me, the last 2 months have been spent sat hunched over stacks of loose sheets and textbooks, highlighting key facts, studying hard at my desk under my Pixar style lamp for my AS exams. For most people, this is when the munchies kick in and the consumption of greasy snacks are heavily relied upon. However, somehow I seem to have lost my appetite due to an increased amount of stress. After what seemed like a lifetime of revision and hour long exams, I was itching to fill myself with some tasty food and basically ate my weight in pizza! Pizza is a lifelong friend of mine, a go-to meal when I am in need of a quick snack and a no brainer when choosing what to buy for dinner. It was certainly a well deserved treat and one which I did not regret afterwards!

What I've Been Reading
This week I haven't been all that interested in catching up with any TV shows or films, so I decided to include what I've been reading instead. I am known to be a very slow reader by almost everyone that knows me and have been known to spend months on one book. For a number of weeks now, I've been snuggled up in the evenings thoroughly enjoying reading One Day by David Nicholls before bed. The book focuses on a young woman called Emma and young man called Dexter over a couple of decades. They meet together one day at college graduation, but know that the next day they must go their separate ways. After spending only one day together, they cannot stop thinking about each other and as the years go by, they continue to reminisce on that special feeling they have for one another. The book follows their separate lives and records the thoughts and feelings of the couple on the same day, every year. Twenty years, two people, ONE DAY!

What I've Been Trying
After what's seemed like a lifetime of saving and very little spending, I felt it was necessary that I hit the shops - a direct hit to my bank! Among everything that I bought, my favourite purchase has to be COD: World At War. For as long as I can remember, I've been craving for this game and when I saw it going cheap, I just had to pick it up. Ever since it's been home, I've been hooked - spending endless hours, late into the evening, sat on the edge of my sofa, firing away at the enemy, releasing my stresses and anger!

Bye for now! Xxx


  1. Pizza is such a great treat!
    I'm a slow reader too, mainly because I don't spend that much time doing it! I've read One Day and loved it, how are you finding it? Have you seen the film?

    1. I really do look forward to it when I can smell it cooking, there's just so much variety! I'm finding it a good read, but it's hard to find time to sit down and read it. I haven't, I wanted to read it first! xx
