25.10.13 | FIVE FINDS

1. Alexis, i LOVE your home - i don't think i'll ever tire of this type of post.
2. If the day comes that I can actually find a hair clip then i'm doing this. All of it.
3. Mole, mole, mole, mole (sang to the tune of Ruby by the Kaiser Chiefs)
4. I want this bag. That is all.
5. Too early? I'm wrapping that way this year!

Right, i'm off - have a good weekend y'all (yep, i'm still majorly into Breaking Bad)

Woah! Blast from the past! This was the only cassette I had with me to play on my walkman when I came to Bath age 16 for work experience on The Bath Chronicle. I must have listened to it a thousand times, but I still love it. I think it was number one when Take That split up? (Why would my brain remember that?!) Anyway, it's this week's Tuesday's Tune - enjoy!

1. This is the most adorable little costume D.I.Y that I've ever seen!
2. These diaries in my friend Fritha's shop have found their way onto my wish list. Way too cute!
3. Sometimes I see a recipe that makes me scream **** **** and **** ** at my computer screen. This did that.
4. I'm pretty damn sure I'll be getting this for India this Christmas but then everything in that shop is awesome!
5. In my dreams I sit in my joggers, eat these and watch Breaking Bad all day long (Season 4? Woah!)

Oh and before I go - I just want to say a big thank-you to Tracy at Shutterbean for linking up my Banana & Maple Granola :)

Happy Weekend Folks!

(these things caught my eye this week)

This xmas tree. 
I know my husband going to be 100% fine with me tacking driftwood and fairy lights into his newly plastered & painted walls.

So, here's a healthy nutriuous snack for you all to ease you back into this drizzly pissy Monday morning.

Peanut Butter / Sugar / Golden Syrup or in other words / yep / oh yes / omfg gimme.

(Relax, you can't drink green smoothies and nibble on kale chips all your life, right? Erm, i think we're meant to...)

I made these and vowed to never make them again as they are just too addictive. I'm not even meant to eat peanut butter but my crazy brain decided that if I did get sick then it would have been ok, because WOW these beauties are so worth it.

If you don't like peanut butter then I guess you left already, but if you do then welcome to my party! Lets dance (and eat) like no-ones watching.

07.10.13 | THE DAILY GRACE

You know how i'm always on it? Y'know, like I'm so current? What do you mean you didn't realise that? Well I am, and because I am I just discovered Grace Helbig who has been being funny all over youtube since 2008 (finger on the pulse).

Anyway,  like I just said she's funny, like really funny.

Go on, go and lol.

P.S - her sexy 911 vid is hilarious.

1. This gin cocktail intrigued me no end this week. I owe it to my puzzled mind to put it out of its misery immediately.
2. There are some awesome printables out there if you look - i love these ones from Paper Coterie.
3. I'm glad Sinéad did this.
4. I'm still dreaming about the amazing bread they bake at Gail's Bakery. The rosemary & potato sour dough is the best bread I've ever eaten (I eat A LOT).
5. I think this was my favourite pin this week. 

Happy Weekend Folks!
