Well, first thing's first, a little bit of exciting news... I got a new job! Yay! I'm now officially a Social Media Coordinator for I had my first day on Thursday and we did lots of brainstorming and planning; there are lots of exciting things in the pipeline which I can't wait to get started on! If you haven't come across before, it's a wee bit like Not On The Highstreet, but all the products are made by Scottish designers and producers. There's lots of lovely homewares, jewellery, accessories, gifts and that sort of thing, and there's a new category launching on the 1st May which I'm rather looking forward to - watch this space! I'll be behind the social media from next week, so if you want to go give us a little follow on Twitter, Facebook or Pinterest I'll love you forever.

After I found out I got the job, I did what any sane person would do and went on a bit of a shopping spree and spent all the money I haven't earned yet. I popped into Boots to get one thing and inevitably left with half the shop thanks to those sneaky 3 for 2 deals. One thing I bought was the Una Brennan Rose Hydrate Cleanser and, although I've only been using it for a few days, I'm pretty sure I love it. I've never used a cleanser which has left my skin feeling so soft before, dry skin be gone! I also had a wander round Primark and got myself a new coral bag and polka dot shirt which I wore for my first day in the office on Thursday.

On Saturday I headed out for some birthday celebrations with Lynne and co, which turned out to be double celebrations as Lynne got engaged earlier this week. Aaaahhh! We started off the night with some bowling at Fountain Park. I can't even remember the last time I went bowling, I think I must have been about 10 or 11! Having been out of practice for so long, my bowling skills were pretty terrible (although just about everyone else was terrible too so that made it all a bit better!). After a couple of games, we all headed into town for some drinks. The original plan had been Panda and Sons but it was super busy so we ended up at Rick's instead. Lots of chats and cocktails were had and before we knew it, it was closing time and were were being turfed out. We did contemplate going out-out after, but the call of chips was too strong and Laura, Kirsty and I got ourselves a Maccy D's, perched ourselves on a bench outside Princes Mall and stuffed our little faces. Classy and fabulous.

What have you been up to this week?
