May Hot List

Almost half way through the year! We’re well on the way to summer now; we’ve even had a few almost-hot days in the UK! Over the past Month it’s been BBQ weather, we’ve had Easter, and even a few cheeky days out! What have you been up to this month?

What Am I Eating?
I’m on a health kick for summer so I’ve been trying to take it easy on the snacks and crisps! I’ve been enjoying the Carrot and Coriander New Covent Garden Soup Co; I’ve been having them for lunch at work with a few cream crackers. Yummy!

What Am I Drinking?
We’ve not long had Easter in the UK, so I have spent pretty much the entire time drinking my ‘Easter Egg Nests’ tea from Bluebird Tea Co. I always order a packet of this around Easter because it tastes so damn good! This is a loose leaf black tea that contains toasted rice, chocolate bits and marshmallows – yummy!

What Am I Smelling Of?
I’ve recently started a bottle of Jimmy Choo perfume that I received for Christmas off my Grandad. It’s quite sweet, so makes a change from my usual scents.

What Am Using For Skincare?
I’m still half way through my Kiehls Powerful Wrinkle Reducing Eye Cream and still loving it! I’ve been using the L’Oreal Paris Dermo-Expertise Youth Code Rejuvenating Anti-Wrinkle Night Cream – a bit of a mouthful, but it was on offer on Feel Unique and I was looking to try a new night cream. My skin feels great, but I’m not completely sure how well it’s doing.

What Am I Reading?
I’m currently reading Me Before You, by Jojo Moyes; I watched the film one Sunday on Netflix and loved it, so brought the book to read. I’m enjoying it so far; I don’t usually read books like this so it makes a nice change. I’m also simultaneously reading The Miniaturist by Jessie Burton; I’m a few chapters in but it’s very enjoyable so far!

What Am I Relaxing To?
At the moment, I’ve been trying to catch up on a bit of TV! I’ve got that many shows on the go at the moment, I’ve been spending time trying to get down them.

What Am I Wearing?
I’ve been practically living in my high-waisted jeans from M&S! They’re great as they fit my waist, legs and bum, and wash brilliantly. Perfect for hiding my Mommy Tummy!

What Am I Watching?
I’ve been watching the new Season of Prison Break; addicted! I’ve also been dipping in and out of Party of Five (Teenage guilty pleasure!) and The Vampire Diaries (Still persevering!) on Netflix, and managed to get my husband to watch Breaking Bad – finally!!

What Am I Listening To?
Again, another month passes and I’m still listening to Ed Sheeran. I think it might be my favourite album for a while, too!

Where Am I Visiting?
I took my Son to the Sea Life Centre in Birmingham; he loved it! I also took him to the nature reserve over Easter; it was lovely and warm too, and we had a picnic. He especially loved the seals.

And that is what my past month has looked like! Let me know how your months have gone in the comments!

    1. I watched it recently for the first time; was quite impressed! Usually I’m the first to say the books better, but I actually enjoyed this adaptation! X

  1. Ed Sheeran is always on when I go to work! I heard a lot of good things on that Jimmy Choo fragrance! I am back at reading but haven’t read any of these books! xx corinne
