FIVE FOR FRIDAY #41

 
Happy almost Halloween all! I'm not the biggest Halloween fan - yes, at nearly 25 I'm scared of the masks, the silly string, the blood and gore etc. - but I always make the effort to dress up. This year I'm planning to be Cruella but my plans for where I'll be dressing up as everybody's favourite stylish villain are not confirmed.

This week's been quite relaxed compared to those of late. I spent the majority of the weekend in London but had a big chunk of time at home of Sunday afternoon to just do nothing. I still haven't been feeling great after getting a stinking cold and chesty cough so it was nice to just do nothing all afternoon.

The rest of this week has involved another Italian lesson, the gym, cuddles with Yuki, this delicious soup, planning Christmas presents (first already purchased, GO ME!) and a flying visit to see my family.

What's in store next week? The start of this wonderful exhibition that I urge you all to go to, my final Italian class for this level, fireworks and London.

Here's this week's Five For Friday:

SHOPPING AT TIGER - I picked up some fab things this week including two of my favourite spotty jam jar glasses. It's so cheap, everything's a bit quirky and, quite frankly, I could buy about 70% of the shop.

CHANEL MADEMOISELLE PRIVE EXHIBITION - It's no secret to those that know me that I'm a huge fan of anything Chanel. Coco Chanel was so inspirational and still continues to inspire with her signature products as well as he iconic style. The Chanel Mademoiselle Prive exhibition captures the spirit and endearing personalities of both Mademoiselle Chanel and Karl Lagerfeld. You can book to take part in workshops, see beautiful portraits and learn so many things about the iconic brand, and the team behind it, that you may not have known before. It's only on until Sunday 1st so try and get there if you can. Be warned - you'll probably be queuing for at least an hour but it's worth the wait. 

THE GOOD WIFE - I've tweeted about this a couple of times recently but I've got so into it. I've been staying up late binge watching episodes. I like how it's not just a show about lawyers; it's got the element of detective work and mystery to it whilst also keeping you hooked with on going relationships and storylines. Each episode tends to discuss a new case but the numerous storylines that play out through the seasons are still there with new things uncovered.

FESTIVE SPIRIT - Yes, I know...it's the end of October and I'm feeling festive but I LOVE Autumn. I love the colours, the scented candles, the warming drinks, the seasonal fruit and vegetables...When it hits Autumn and I can practically smelled the mulled wine around the corner, it gets me all excited.

THIS KATSU CURRY - I've been banging on about this to everybody I know but it's SO good. I've also tried it with chicken and it was tasty but with aubergine, well, it's my new favourite dish. Try it, love it, thank me later.

Have a wonderful weekend lovely readers.
