Evening guys! I know it's my second post of the day but I couldn't resist a little ramble about my week!

It's that time of the week we all dread when Sunday starts to feel less like the weekend and more like a Monday morning.

It's also the time of the week where I like to have a little catch up of whats been going on this week. As I have a full time job weekdays are usually pretty dull and boring so I tend to skip these but this week I did something fabulous - and on a school night!

After a crappy day at work usually I want to jump into my pj's and grab a chippy on the way home. This week was MUCH different. I put some slap on, hopped on the bus and headed to Starbucks to meet with the rest of the Sheffield bloggers for a evening at Lush! It was great to get to know some of the other bloggers and to mooch around Lush without 50 thousand people in there. I had such a fantastic night and met some lovely girlies! As this was only my second event I'm still new to the whole thing but definitely loved every minute of it.

Unfortunately I was a little under the weather on Friday night and Saturday morning so missed out on the East Midlands Blogger Event which was taking place at Lincoln Christmas Market. Instead when I started to feel better Kieran suggested we take a trip to Ikea to get one of my Christmas presents - A Hemnes dressing table. We also popped into the cafe on our way out and grabbed a hotdog and a lingonberry juice - IKEA are undertaking a less sugar scheme which means they have banished the Coca-Cola and Fanta in favour of their own juice drinks. He then said I could have it early - I mean come on, how on earth was he going to wrap a bloody dressing table! - and put it up as soon as we got home. Although it currently is a teeny bit to big for our bedroom in this house, we hopefully won't be renting forever. I've wanted one of these dressing tables for probably about 5 years...if not more! This definitely cheered me up a little bit.

We also bought some tea light holders as thanks to my Yankee Candle Advent Calendar I have a never ending supply of tea lights! For only 35p each they were a bargain!! 

After having a lazy morning catching up with the weekend's telly - Gogglebox, South Park and I'm a Celebrity - we headed off to the local garden centre to have a look at all the Christmas decorations. There were some stunning wreathes and Christmas lights and some scrummy candles! While we were there we nipped into the cafe for a spot of afternoon tea. I had a tea for one and a plain scone with cream and jam and it was bloody lovely! I couldn't even finish the scone!
And now for tonight - I've made a little crock pot full of beef casserole in preparation for the I'm a Celebrity final tonight, I'm just catching up with last nights episode and honestly think the Cyclone Challenge looks like SO much fun! - #TEAMVICKY by the way! Also later I'm planning a big bubbly bath filled with lots of Lush goodies from Thursday!

I hope everyone is having a cracking Sunday - What have you been up to this weekend?
