You may notice something a little bit different about the blog this week…? I’ve made a new layout as I was getting bored of looking at the old one and fancied a change! It took me most of Friday to get it looking how I wanted but I think I’m happy with it now. I was worried there would be too much white space, but I’ve widened the columns a bit so I can have larger photos, and I think it looks okay. I’ve also finally got round to buying a domain name for the blog so you can now access it via elevatormusik.com! (If you have any links to my blog I’d appreciate it if you could update your links – thanks!). What do you think of the new blog design?
This week has been pretty unexciting (story of my life) but I’ve been kept busy with uni work and dissertation research. I signed up for Netflix this week, which is probably a bad idea considering all the other things I should be doing instead! I’ve watched a few movies and I’m working my way through Breaking Bad. I’d been meaning to watch it for ages but never got round to it – it’s brilliant, would definitely recommend!
As I haven’t been shopping since the end of November I decided it was time to treat myself to something and when I magically found a Diet Coke discount code in my hands, I knew I had to spend some pennies at Benefit! There’s a sneak peek of what I ordered in the photo above, but I will be doing fuller reviews of all the products soon.
Healthy living-wise I’ve been doing pretty well this week. I’ve done the Shred a few times and have been trying to eat well. Although I did make an exception for some haggis, neeps and tatties on Burns Night – yum! I also ordered myself some cute matryoshka measuring cups as a lot of the recipes I’ve been looking at online are American ones so don’t use grams or ounces. I thought using measuring cups would be much easier than figuring out how to convert things! I made some banana muffins yesterday which are so good, and surprisingly quite healthy. I came across Eat Yourself Skinny the other day which has loads of amazing looking recipes I can’t wait to try out! What are your favourite food blogs?
What have you been up to this week?
