Love, Lust and Links

Sorry this is a little late- I've had a crazy, busy but completely awesome weekend :]]] Today is a day of catching up in the library, cups of tea and early nights!!

1. Girly Friends
I am a really girly girl and I really need female company. My girls at home are there when I need to laugh, cry or talk about anything that anyone else would consider heinously inappropriate. I've had a really great weekend just hanging out with two of my lovely girl friends. It's been a lot of fun!!

2. Being spontaneous
I am rigid in my planning and organisation, but I forget how much I enjoy letting go and seeing what happens. I just need a big push to make it happen!!

3. Cooking
My new Hungry Girl book came this week, so last night we made I Can't Believe It's Not Potato Salad and her fish skewers. I was in charge of the salad and it took about a zillion ingredients and took FOREVER. But I love the satisfaction of making something that may take a while, but tastes amazing.

4. The end of Coffee-free January
Finally!! On Tuesday I can have my first skinny vanilla latte in a month!! You can see how my month went without my coffee fix over at College Candy
.
5. Photography



After my photography post on Wednesday I have really tried to up to ante with my photography. I have a long way to go but I'm really happy with this week's pictures.


I'm not too sure if there is any way at all these shoes could be any more perfect. Does anyone want to start saving up for my impending 21st Birthday?


Yes, my Birthday is 2 months away (exactly, actually!!) but after seeing someone on LookBook wearing this dress I've decided it has to be mine.

8. Kendi Everyday
Kendi is the master of remixing. This week she posted her remixing guide and presented us with her picks for her next 30 in 30 challenge. If it wasn't a mere two days until the start of Feburary I really think I would have considered doing 30 in 30. I think it would be a real challenge but I think it would really open my eyes up to what my wardrobe can do. Maybe next month, eh?

9. Travel Plans
I'm starting to get really excited about planning a trip to Minneapolis really soon, and I'm seriously considering a trip to Chicago for the weekend at some point after my birthday. I can't wait!!

10. Carrots and Houmous


I'm kinda concerned that I eat more of this snack than can be healthy but I really hope that isn't the case. Especially as I've just finished a plateful...

11. Catching up with friends
This has been a great week for seeing people I hadn't had a chance to see yet. Cue a lot of meals out and a lot of lovely conversation!!

12. Modcloth sponsoring The Lovely Ones


The lovely folk at Modcloth have sent us a dress for us to style in our clothes swap. The lovely Ashley has it first but as we live in the same town she's passing it onto me this week. Can't wait!!

13. Exciting stuff here at GNDF
This week I have a giveaway, LOTS of inspiration and my Blogger of the Month!! Stay tuned!!

Hope you had a lovely weekend!!

  3. Those shoes - oh my goodness. I would break an ankle, but I would look fabulous doing it!!

    I have to agree with you about hummus/houmous... I've developed quite an addiction to it. With carrots, tortilla chips, homemade pita, so delicious!!!

    Also I'm so excited about the ModCloth dress! I can't wait till I get to try it on!!
