Cheers to the freakin’ weekend! That’s right, Friday is among us and following my usual Friday routine, singing along to various playlists on Spotify (including a little Mariah Carey) and sipping black coffee in the hope to stay awake past 9:30pm, I have complied a small list of 5 things to do this weekend...
#1 GO TO THE CINEMA
After a lot of laughs this weekend? Well, grab a ticket to see “Spy". After watching “Jurassic World" last weekend and feeling a little underwhelmed, myself and my Ben decided to watch “Spy”. The movie follows Melissa McCarthy who plays a desk-bound CIA analyst who volunteers to go undercover. And it’s a howler! The witty humour throughout left my cheeks sore and my abs all a little tighter, as I laughed along with the rest of the audience. The all-star cast included Miranda Hart, Rose Bryne, Jude Law and Jason Statham - who stole the show. “Spy” is directed by Paul Feig who directed both “Bridesmaids” and “Heat” and I would go as far to say “Spy” is just as funny, if not more so, than the likes of “Bridesmaids”!
#2 SPRING CLEAN YOUR BEAUTY STASH
I’m sure we all have one too many open mascaras, sun cream that is at least a year out of date and clear mascara that’s looking anything but clear. So when was the last time you have a good beauty clear out? Read my post all about makeup expiry dates, along with tips and trickshere. And don’t forget your makeup brushes, grab a bar of Simple Soap and get to work ladies!
#3 START READING A NEW BOOK
I love getting wrapped up in a thrilling storyline and getting lost amongst a good book. This weekend take the time out to buy a new book, or make a start on the book that’s currently sitting on your shelf unturned. On my recent trip to Rhodes I read two books one of which was called ‘I Let You Go’ by Clare Mackintosh. ‘I Let You Go’ has fast become one of my favourite books. Read within 24 hours, ‘I Let You Go’ left me with the biggest book hangover; the inability to start a new book because you’re still living in the last book’s world. Highly recommend!
#4 GO FOR A RUN
As the majority of you snooze away under your duvets and tuck into your breakfast this Sunday morning, I will be running around Victoria Park for the Nike Women’s 10km London raising money for The British Heart Foundation in memory of my Granddad. If you follow me on Twitter you may be aware I’ve been loving a good run gone 9pm. 6 months ago I was 2.5 stone heavier and couldn’t walk up the hill home without becoming out of breath. Running is a great way to get and stay fit. If I can do it, so can you! I’m sure I will update you all with a beetroot faced selfie once I cross the finish line and if you would like to help me raise money for such a worthy cause, you can text KNOT90 followed by £1, £2, £3, £4 or £5 to 70070, or visit my Just Giving page - thank you.
#5 SHOP THE SALES
Why is it a week before payday my inbox becomes inundated with summer sale emails? So life can be a little unfair at times, but I’ve had a little look (how could I not?!) and the ZARA sale has much to offer from stripy skirts to leather bags, the TOPSHOP sale on the other hand is a little disappointing as within 24 hours it has been raided and little of what I like is available in my size. Feel Unique are offering up to 50% off, which I have currently resisted, but I have a feeling the bareMinerals base I’ve been lusting after might just make it into my online shopping basket by the end of the weekend!
