I can't believe it's Sunday again already, especially considering I've done pretty much nothing all week. I'm still enjoying having lots of spare time to myself now that uni is finished for the summer, but I am getting bored rather quickly! This week has mostly consisted of playing The Sims, designing blogs, watching The Office US on Netflix, and eating too much food. One of my friends came over after her work on Tuesday to drop some things off and we decided to go for an impromptu meal out. We decided on Illegal Jack's which is a great Tex Mex restaurant 5 minutes away from my flat. I almost always have a burrito from there, so good! I am rather partial to their margarita pitchers too but restrained myself this time!

On Thursday my flatmate and I had a little day trip to Ikea. We got the bus there so I couldn't buy too much stuff (which was probably a blessing in disguise, really). I did get a couple of little bits and pieces though, including some new fairy lights for my room - yes I am still a child - and some desk organisers/storage things. Think I might do a post next week about my makeup storage, it's looking much neater than it did before! My favourite bit about Ikea is definitely the cafe though, always have to have some meatballs and chips!

As my flatmate has gone home for a few days, I was all set to have a quiet weekend in by myself watching rubbish films and eating ice cream, but my friend texted me yesterday afternoon asking if I wanted to go out. I hadn't seen her in months and she's probably one of my favourite people in the entire world, so of course I said yes! It was good to have a catch up with her and everyone else at her flat, then we headed to the pub for some drinks and then out to a club. I had such a good night but I've got a rather sore head today! I swear I used to be able to go out 4 nights a week and be absolutely fine, but now it takes me a full day to recover from a night out. Must be a sign I'm getting old!

What have you been up to this week?

  1. There is so much food in this week's post (LOOOOOOVEEEEEE). I get tired a lot more easily than I used to as well. Must be getting old, too :(

  2. Love when Week In Pics posts are pretty much all food, gives me ideas for dinner haha!
    I too take a whole day to recover from a night out now! I think stopping working in the pub, not drinking as much and having a baby has caused it- I never used to suffer! xo

  3. I love fairy lights! So hungry for all this food now, need to try illegal jacks.

  4. I know how you feel. Now that school is over I just play Sims, read, eat and watch movies. Four weeks of doing this is making me crazy. Sometimes I want to scream beacuse how bored I get.

  5. That rocky road ice cream sounds tasty!

  6. I love going to ikea.. I always end up buying too much and struggling to fit it in the car. The dominos pics made me want pizza even though I'm just in from dinner out! I will send that email in the next couple of days I promise.. seem to be running days behind with everything this week - bad!

  8. looks like you had a great week! I have no energy for going out any more either, think I'm too much of a homegirl these days! Ikea is my absolute favourite, I'd love to see a make up storage post! xx

  9. I'm in the same situation at the moment, been on holiday from uni since May and its really starting to get boring! I'm going to Ikea this week, I LOVE Ikea meatballs and chips :) there such a bargain but so yummy too. I love Rocky Road Icecream.. yum. If your a massive ice cream fan like me, try the peanut butter icecream from Marks and Spencers.. seriously the best icecream i've ever had! chunky bits of peanut putter toffee and whole peanuts.. oh i'm making myself hungry..haha.
