Lifestyle Blogpost

Lifestyle Blogpost

It has finally come to the time where i have decided to start my own series of lifestyle posts. I am getting a little bored of just doing beauty posts and wanted to mix it up a little. 

New Hobby...
For those of you who don't know i am currently off work sick awaiting my second knee operation which will be in August. I have been off work for a long time and will be probably until after Christmas so i have been finding new things to keep me occupied. Going through old photos i have decided to make a scrapbook of my life. I am excited to decorate the book and make something i can keep forever. 

Date Night...
Saturday night was date night. Me and my boyfriend went to Frankie & Bennys which was gorgeous. I have a huge sweet tooth and the deserts at F&B are just so yummy! We then went to the cinema to watch the new Jurassic Film and it was amazing. After everyone raving about it i am glad i went to watch it. I was not a fan of the old Jurassic Films but i loved this one! As above you can see my grey/lilac top which i wore, it is super comfy and looks gorgeous. I got this from Boohoo.

Hospital Update...
Thursday i was at the hospital again and i was very nervous as i didn't know what the outcome would be. Before we went, me and my mum stopped off at Nando's for some lunch. She has got me hooked on the halloumi cheese! On Thursday i finally got told i would be having my second knee operation hopefully in August. It will be a big operation having screws put into my knee etc...I will be off work for probably another 6 months :( I will be doing a post to explain more about this and how it will effect me blogging.

New Things...
I recently wanted a new Summer handbag, something bright. I saw this yellow tote bag in New Look and fell in love! It is a gorgeous banana coloured bag perfect for summer. I also got the new "50 Shades Book" which i cannot wait to read as i loved all of the others. I usually do my own gel nails but lately i am loosing the patience from being in pain all the time so i picked up these cute flamingo nails from boots which i am really loving!

Hope you enjoyed my first ever lifestyle post and i hope to be doing these more often! Don't forget to follow me on my instagram shown above!
