Things We’ve Done

We added Bloglovin’, because we love WordPress, but we know not everyone does

By far the google search that brings most people here (aside from our cameras) is ‘glitter dipped nails’. When I noticed this last week I decided it was the perfect excuse to true a new colour combo. That, and I can’t resist glitter.

They look a bit messy but they turned out ok once the excess glitter brushed off (they feel very Lime Crime inspired)! This is Pale Violet from the H&M ‘Say No to Racism!’ nail polish set and a purple fairy dust that I just can’t get enough of. Admittedly they were perfect over the weekend but are now chipped to pieces…

This week, we got together for one last cake based fling before we return to uni, exams and essays (much like the war, do not mention the essays), along with Miss Olivia and Miss Emily.

We had tea, and watched the King’s Speech, and took photos, but most importantly we made muffins.

The recipe came from this incredible blog and created what can only be described as the lovechild of a doughnut and a muffin. Just as she says, these muffins are far from meh or bleh, and we IMPLORE you to make them. Immediately. They are like a buttery, sugary party in the mouth and quite frankly, that is all anyone needs to cope with January.

Tiny cat also did some flailing for good measure.

1. Orlando, Virginia Woolf – My course book for last week

2. A Room of One’s Own, Virginia Woolf – notice a theme emerging?

3. Wide Sargasso Sea, Jean Rhys – Another course book but I loved reading it, and the film is on iPlayer at the moment!

4. A ton of journal articles about women, creativity, hysteria and Woolf. Highlighting for added studiousness.

5. Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, John Le Carré – I’m determined to read this before I see the film, but at a weighty 400 pages it might take me a while!

What are you reading this week?
