My Week In Instagram Pictures


Hello there! I hope you're all well! I'm going to do things slightly different today as I fancied a change from the same old same old. I joined Instagram a little while ago so I thought that I would share with you a few photos from the past week so you can see what I get up to when I'm not blogging. To be honest I haven't been up to much but life looks so much more interesting through pictures doesn't it?

So last week, I bought one of those mug/jar/cup thingamajigs. I guess it is a mason jar with a handle. Anyways, it was only 63p which was weirdly satisfying. It came with a stripy straw which is adorable but the straw did disintegrate after a day which is to be expected considering it was made of paper. At least this has opened up the prospect of straw shopping. How sad does that sound?! I'm actually quite excited for it though so if anyone knows where to get any pretty straws let me know in the comments. The benefits of having a cup like this, except looking like a five year old, are that I can now balance it on the arm of the couch without worrying too much about spillages. Anything to make life easier!

So after my bargain buy, I made my way to the local park for a family outing. It's so nice to have a wander around the park when there is noone there. My little boy adored feeding the ducks and playing on the swings and I must admit I may possibly have enjoyed it more than him.

If you regularly read my blog, you'll know that I changed my normal brand of bleach to Bleach London. I was really pleased with the results but seeing as I've already done a post about it, I won't ramble on. If you'd like to read my review you can find it here.

The next big thing to happen last week was I changed my bedding. This obviously isn't life changing and I promise you it is a regular thing but how satisfying is it to get into clean sheets? Plus they have pink cath kidston style flowers on it. It definitely makes waking up a little bit easier. Only a little.

I dip in and out of hobbies regularly but I'm pleased to share with you all that I've started cross stitching again! I'm going to finish a few more of these and then I'll do a blog post to share what I have planned for them. I'm actually finding sewing really relaxing at the moment so I'm going to sew my little heart out until I get fed up.

Finally, I had a day of shopping yesterday and I popped into Lush for some bath bombs as I've ran out. I was actually searching for Rose Queen but they were out of stock so I was introduced to their new bath bomb which is similar. It's called Rose Bombshell and it smells gorgeous. I haven't tried it yet but I can't wait to use it. I also popped into Paperchase and admired their lovely stationary. It's hard not to admire everything in there to be honest but a lot has been added to my wishlist.

So it hasn't been the most action packed week but it has been a relaxing one. If you'd like to find me on Instagram my username is soiesm

Have you done much this week?

    1. It's so cute. I'm actually drinking a lot more since I got it, it's a lot more appealing drinking water out of a jar than a glass haha!
