Hello and just like that another week has passed and fortunately the rain has mostly stayed away. Although we did have an awful dense fog descend on Monday and it’s only lifted today. It’s so odd when when you can barely see out of the windows and driving has been quite scary.
But fog aside, this is what I have been up to this week.
Creating Colouring Pages On My Cricut Maker
This week I tried the drawing feature on my Cricut Maker. It was not something I had ever been inspired to use before, however wanted to create something for Cruising With Kids and omg, I love it. Who knew creating colouring pages would be so satisfying. Its actually quite addictive.
Falling In Love with Instagram Again.
I felt so fatigued by the fact you have to work so hard on instagram, always wondering what to say or do and then I watched a series of instagram videos on the feed by the lovely Helen at Not About The Kids which has really inspired me.
It made me realise I needed to do something more creative and in line with me, and also reflect Donna and I more over on CWC, so we have started creating mini videos. Nothing super polished just us loving what we are doing, especially over on Cruising With Kids.
We see all these amazing places and cruise ships and share pictures, however it’s sometimes better to do a mini tour, and you know what? I am falling in love with it all over again. But trust me its been a long time coming.
Elemis Superfood Skincare
This week QVC sent me the Elemis Superfood Skincare Set to try out which is on offer until Sunday for £49.50! Sorry shameless plug! But I am a huge fan of Elemis and these products did not disappoint!
They feel great on my skin and smell amazing. I love that I can swap around within the Elemis ranges, as I do like to have a change every now and then. This set is a winner so far, I am especially loving the foaming face wash and serum.
Managing to do Yoga 3 mornings this week feels a real achievement, and I can’t believe how much better I feel for it? It’s such a wonderful way to start the day, it’s an added bonus I can do it from home. And is fast becoming part of my routine on my work at home days which I really look forward to.
The Week Ahead
This weekend we plan to take it easy, with a long country walk to the pub and a roast dinner. Having chill days after a manic couple of months is just wonderful. It’s also Chris’s birthday so we have an afternoon of lunching and drinking wine planned for the next week.
Monday I am off to see We Will Rock You arghhhhh I am so so excited. I have been a Queen fan ever since Live Aid, how amazing were they that night? Also the Bohemian Rhapsody movie was just incredible, such an insight into Freddie Mercury’s life and mind.
The show is not about Queen, but a future world without musical instruments and how a handful of rock rebels, the Bohemians, fight for freedom, individuality and the rebirth of the age of rock. It’s showing at the Palace theatre until the 8th Feb and I am so quite giddy about seeing it.
This year is going to be an epic one in Manchester Theatre. In fact there is so much to see that I created a Manchester Theatre Guide to put all my favourites in one place to make choosing a little easier.
But honestly? I dont know how anyone would choose between that little lot.
So that’s me for a week, I am off to take Toby for a nice walk and pour a glass of wine. Enjoy you week, hope it’s a good one for you.
Disclaimer, I received the Elemis Products for review purposes, however am a huge fan of Elemis. And as I will be reviewing We Will Rock You the ticket is gifted.
