    Thriller Novels, Ed Sheeran and a Day in Bed #LittleLoves 11/52

    And breathe... The madness is over! Or at least, it is for now. I wrapped up my event with Girl Gang last weekend, spent Sunday packing down and then slept all day on Monday. The insane two weeks got to me and gave me such a terrible migraine and desperate need to be in bed that I did something I haven't done in ages and called in sick. Luckily, my current job is pretty flexible so I'm just making up the hours throughout the week. It was unreal how much good one day off did for me. I felt so much more awake and focused on Tuesday. I swear, three day weekends should become the norm.


    I've actually had a chance to read, hallelujah! I've finally got round to starting The Girl on the Train and I'm hooked. I love a good thriller, at least in book format I do and I'm finding it really captivating. Although I will say that the style is quite similar to a lot of Gillian Flynn novels, which isn't necessarily a bad thing.

    Love season two dropped on Netflix and I got through it all in one day. Impressed? I have mixed feelings towards this series, I only started watching it because of Gillian Jacobs as I'm a dedicated Community fan. I do enjoy it and it makes me laugh a lot. I think the cast are excellent and the characters are definitely well rounded and more realistic, but there is something just a little bit 'too-cool-for-school' about it. I can't quite put my finger on it, it almost takes awkward cool to a new level. A bit like 500 Days of Summer. Still, worth a watch if you're looking for something new.

    Like everyone else in the entire world, I've become obsessed with Ed Sheeran's new album. It's brilliant. I've honestly had it on repeat for the entire week. I'm loving the Irish touches, I feel like Ed should always work with fiddle players from now on, it's just such a good combination. I *think* this is my favourite song, but it's hard to pick one.

    Other than the crazy amounts of craft and decorative projects I did for Bridesmaids last week, I've made nothing. But I did design these magnets for our party bags that I was pretty damn pleased with, considering I am no graphic designer.


    Nothing very interesting, at least that I captured. But I did get my nails done again. I love the shape and the colour, but I'm a little disappointed with the finish. They're just not as shiny as they should be and I think they just look a bit cheap. I did write to the salon but no response yet. Any recommendations for good, reasonably priced nail salons in Manchester?

    Well, unless you've been ignoring me for the past month, you should know about the Bridesmaids event on Saturday. It went so well and we've got such great feedback so far. I came out with a strange mixture of absolutely buzzing and pure exhaustion. In other news, I went back to my Yoga class for the first time in three weeks because it kept getting cancelled and boy, did I need it. I felt so much better afterwards, which lasted for all of about three hours. Damn my joints.

    1. Lovely nail color perfect for spring. Everyone is raving about this Ed Sheeran I really need to have a listen. Never heard of him before. I know where have I been living. lol I am a country music listener all the way. So I don't step out of the comfort zone very often. Hope you are having a great weekend. #littleloves

    2. So pleased that your Girl Gang event went well, but also that you got some much deserved rest afterwards too! xx
