I am going to Italy in the morning… very early in the morning ! The photos above are from my last visit to Rome. I am really looking forward to going back again. This time I will be staying just outside Rome but will make sure I have a few day trips there !
Any tips ?!
Keep up with me on my trip to Italy – @prettygreentea
A blog for you : Egg Bacon Chips And Beans ! – I love a sneaky peak into peoples worlds and what they eat ! This blog does just that, but has a focus on.. yes, egg, bacon chips and beans please! It includes a mini review on the cafe too! The photos are so simple and natural, I just love this kind of thing !
Thank you to the fantastic team at MyPure for sending me this Lovea Bio Nourishing Body Balm ! It is ideal for dry/very dry skin and I can already say that after a week of using this my skin is feeling a lot softer and any dry patches are going ! I had cheese the other day I KNOW I KNOW, no way did I do such a thing. Well yes, I did and my arms obviously became sore along with my dainty / clumsy fingers. So I have been using this on my arms and I am really noticing a difference and it seems to be clearing up the cheese situation! It obviously does sting a little if you put it onto broken skin, it is to be expected though. It does not make my skin itch at all which I think is fab because if I use a cream with a beautiful smell it sometimes makes me itchy! Grrr….but once again Love Bio do good !
I pop it on once a day after my shower, maybe I should be doing it twice ! I am taking it with me on my trip to Italy so I will let you know how I get on with it !
It costs £6.49 for a pot full of creamy cream with a delightful sweet smell, though it is not too over powering!

Today was about cooking, sorting out things in my room and making plans!
The past week:
I have managed to spend a little too much in the past week. I have got myself some new make up from MAC, Benefit and No7 ( make use of those £5 Boots vouchers everyone) ! I am at long last understanding the need for make up brushes, though I am yet to buy some. My mini brush set will do for now !
Box sets – I am open to anything so give mew some suggestions..I have been on Mad Men, The Shield, Sex And The City and I want to watch Deadwood this week !
I had a few meetings regarding some photography projects which is very exciting.
I am back at the gym after a week and a half off because of having the flu. I must say it is delightful to be back in there, I am looking at still doing three days a week and two classes.
I have booked a little Christmas trip to Germany !
I saw a Faith sfx on Friday.. an amazing beat boxer, I had never seen any such thing live before and it sucked me right in!
I made some healthy breakfast bars today for this week. I hope I get round to making my soup on the morrow !
I hope you have all had a lovely weekend !

As I promised last night, five of my fave tips from each section of the book along with the lovely blogger who donated their ideas !
To help keep your curls in place overnight, tuck them into a pair of knickers before you go to sleep. (You may need two pairs to cover the leg holes) – Amy – For Domestic Goddess, Redial !
Use olive oil as a deep treatment on the ends of your hair every night ! – Carly – Cheated Hearts !
Use a home made sea-salt spray ( 1 pinch sea salt yo 100 ml mineral water ) and scrunch dry for perfect beach waves ! – BrionyLou – As Miss Golightly was saying… !
Brunettes – Wash your hair in beer every now and again. Just rinse with water after. Gives a great shine and helps condition! – Emma – Computergirl’s musings !
