Five Good Things.


So I’m scheduling this post because I’m definitely, definitely sleeping in tomorrow morning! And I never sleep in. I’ve had such a busy week this week, and I feel exhausted for it. Lots of 5 and 6am starts, and who has the patience for that?

01. As I said, I’ve been a busy bee this week – I’ve filmed some really fun videos, including a morning routine and a makeup tutorial. I’m so excited to get them edited for you, I’m really loving uploading right now!
I’m desperate to do some more interiors uploads, so I’m going to concentrate on them this coming week. Get your requests in!

02. I’ve been DIYing a lot lately, and I’m excited for my current project to be finished. I bought some copper plumbing pipe to make a rail in our kitchen, and I’ve painted it gold to match the rest of the room. My job for today is to put it up… something tells me it’s not going to be easy! Keep your peepers peeled over on Instagram for a sneak peek!

03. My skin has been looking ahhhmazing lately, and I’m SO pleased! It’s basically all down to the Clarins Booster Repair, which I’ve been adding to my everyday moisturiser. My skin was so parched and tired looking, especially after so many long-haul trips, but I swear this has completely transformed my complexion. Highly recommend!

04. We’re meant to be going to a sort-of festival here in Glasgow tomorrow called Stag & Dagger – We Are Scientists are playing, along with Deaf Havana and This Will Destroy you, so hopefully we’ll be in attendance. We both have early starts on Monday, despite the Bank Holiday, but I’m trying to convince Jordan it’ll be worth it!

05. We finished watching The Affair before I went to San Francisco, and then I picked up Grey’s Anatomy again… but I really need another gripping drama to watch! Something that I can lose entire weeks to, please. Any recommendations?!

What’s on the cards for you lot this weekend?

  • Since you like Grey’s, you should try other Shonda shows! I loooove HTGAWM. And if you like Grey’s, maybe you’ll like House and/or Scrubs (I’ve actually never watched Scrubs but I heard that it’s really different haha). Currently I’m watching Game of Thrones! Season 6 has just started πŸ˜€ -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey’s

    Haha, yay for May Justin! I saw he tweeted something about the meme and I just sat there alone, applauding Justin Timberlake. And he’ll never know. What a guy.

    I love the gold rail in your kitchen, it looks like such a neat way of turning storage into something pretty stylish, so props!
    What did you think of The Affair?! I seriously cannot wait for Season 3, it needs to hurry the heck up.

    Hey, sorry to go off topic but 1. I really trust your judgement and 2. love that you’re based in Glasgow like me! Is there anywhere in Glasgow you’ve had your makeup done and loved? I see so many make up places popping up but their extreme contouring scares me somewhat and I have a grad ball and wedding this summer so would love to find somewhere nice! In a similar vein is there anywhere in Glasgow you get your eyebrows done.. the whole celeb brows thing really puts me off so many places haha xx

  • Can’t wait to see some DIYs, as for TV shows, I’ve just re-watched all four seasons of Prison Break for the 4 time, I definitely recommend it, it’s fantastic!
