Weekly Round-Up: #31


This week has mostly evolved around experimenting with my new camera, food and home decoration. 

New Camera: Canon EOS 750D

I started off the week with two firsts; experimenting with my camera and experimenting with my new eyeshadow palette. If you missed my post then check out my New Make Up Look: Urban Decay Gwen Stefani Eyeshadow Palette.


I also took this photograph of my current MAC lipstick collection – so remember to check back if you are interested in that post!

Food: Steak & Fajitas

During the week Dave treated me to a meal out at a local Hungry Horse chain pub-grub restaurant.

The offer was a free starter or dessert with any main so we shared starters of onion rings and nachos… however we were both so hungry I forgot to take a snap!

For main I ordered the crispy piri-piri fajitas and Dave ordered the 20oz (yes 20!) steak.

The food was lovely however the fajitas just weren’t spicy enough for me – I should take hot sauce with me in my handbag!

Home Decoration: Plastering, Mirror & Wall Art

At the weekend Dave’s parents came over to give us a hand with some more renovation and decoration jobs in our new house. We are so blessed that Dave’s dad is a builder so can turn his hand at anything. He got to work stripping the artex and replastering the ceiling in one of our spare bedrooms which will be used as a study.

Once the plaster is dry and painted we can then scrub the walls and paint over the ghastly mint green which currently adornes several rooms in our new home. 

Dave and I recently stumbled across Barker & Stonehouse online which is a furniture and homeware brand with stores in London, the Midlands and further north and coincidentally nowhere near Suffolk! We both fell in love with this beautiful copper mirror and copper and gold wall art piece.   

 Our lounge is slowly taking shape and our new sofa should be delivered by the end of the month so I’m excited for that as I really miss snuggles on the sofa.

I hope you have enjoyed my weekly round up, let me know what you have been up to this week. I love reading and replying to comments.
