FIVE FOR FRIDAY #4

 
This week has been a bit of a write off really as I've been suffering with a bad cold so been plodding about at work then pretty much home, dinner, a bit of reading and bed. The week has absolutely flown though and I'm happy it's almost the weekend again!

This weeks FFF:

Weekend excitement - I'm heading home for the weekend for a quiet and relaxing one. Despite relaxed evenings this week, I feel like I'm really burning myself out at the moment. Last weekend was fun but so busy. It will be nice to have some time at home to bake and cook, see my family and friends. I'm also having my sixth tattoo on Saturday, which I'm quite excited about (but still worryingly undecided!)

Foodie Fun - I've had a great foodie week since my last FFF. I spent the last weekend in London and A LOT of eating out was involved. I visited Bar Esteban in Crouch End for tapas, Ham Holy Burger in John Lewis on Oxford Street for, you guessed it, a burger, Tom's Kitchen in Chelsea for the most amazing granola and fruit salad breakfast, Pizza Pilgrims for an incredible Portobello Mushroom and Truffle Oil treat and my favourite granola and grated apple breakfast at Muswell Hill's Owen's Food Store - I will be blogging about all of these over the next week so prepare yourselves for some mouthwatering photographs.

Christmas Shopping - I set a monthly goal for November to start my Christmas shopping and I've been thoroughly enjoying it. I've bought a couple of bits but I've been loving window shopping and finding the perfect presents for my loved ones. I definitely enjoy giving gifts to people and seeing their excitement more than receiving them (hard to believe with my multiple Christmas gift lists, I know!)

Taylor Swift - 1989 - I have had a massive love and appreciation for TS for years now. Now she's released her new album and my love for her is through the roof. She seriously writes the best lyrics and speaks exactly what so many of us feel. New Romantics has become my newly assigned life anthem and I love Blank Space as well. My colleagues are probably loving (note: wanting to kill me) this week as I've had 1989 on a loop in my office right through the week.

Muji Elderflower Candle Tin - I started shopping in Muji back when I was in college. They had a lovely little store in Nottingham (is it still there?) and I was obsessed with their stationary. They also had my absolute favourite candle - which I now forget the name of and never replaced, more fool me! It was a pinky/purple colour and smelt amazing - I went in the other day, praying they would still have said candle but alas, no longer stocked. I spent a good 20 minutes talking to the lovely shop assistant who recommended a few of his favourites and I finally decided on the Elderflower candle, we thought it was a great 'any time' candle, suitable for any room of the house as well.
