My Five Things on a Friday

I’m changing things up a little round here and taking some inspo from my friend and fellow blogger Jess Soothill and sharing five things on a Friday. Starting from today I’ll endeavor to share a mini list of five things each Friday from that week.

Beauty Pie

Thanks to @mutha.hood on Instagram I’ve been introduced to Beauty Pie, the ‘Netflix of the beauty industry’. You pay a subscription that gives you members prices on premium skincare and beauty products. After moaning about the state of my skin and running out of both moisuriser and cleanser on the same week I thought I’d give it a go. I’ve ordered: 

Super Retinol (+vitamin C) night renewal moisturiser £8.77
Super Healthy Skin™ Daily Moisture Lotion £6.34
Super Eye Energy Peptide – Infusion Cream £7.15

I’ll report back with how I get on with them. FYI I am no beauty blogger so don’t expect a detailed comparitive review!

If you click this referral link you’ll get your first month free and I’ll get free shipping on my next order 😉

Take me to Beauty Pie



On Wednesday it was my eldest daughter’s eleventh birthday, yep, she was born on Halloween. She was actually due on the 4th of November but I went into labour the night of the 30th and gave birth in the morning of the 31st. I still remember crying to the midwife about not wanting a Halloween baby after the clock ticked past midnight! 



I honestly don’t know what I’d do without Spotify, especially when I’m at home on my own in the day working in my office. This week Sampha and Moses Sumney have been on heavy rotation while I’ve been tapping away on my laptop.



In the summer I started doing yoga every Wednesday night at a local class and I love it. I’ve tried yoga classes a few times before and have done it at home to Yoga by Adriene on Youtube but this is the first time I’ve practiced consistently. I’m really enjoying it and look forward to the class each week, I’m amazed when I think of the improvements from when I started to now. I won’t be doing any advanced poses any time soon though!


The Office

I’ve just discovered that the US version of The Office is available to watch on Prime Video. I don’t know how but like with Parks and Recreation, I didn’t see it the first time round so it’s all new to me. What can I say, I’m hooked and I fear for my productivity levels over the coming weeks!


So there’s my mini list for the week. Now, I need you to wish me luck, I’ve got a house full of pre-teen girls sleeping over tonight for my eldest’s birthday. I think I’ll need ALL THE COFFEE when Saturday morning rolls around.


What are your five things?

    Oh sounds like a good week hunny. Love yoga wish I could do it each morning. I need to do more stretching too. Really improves quickly though doesn’t it. My mom did the same when I was born on Boxing Day didn’t want a Xmas baby.

    One of my ‘resolutions’ for this year was yoga. I started really well and I know it does me good but I’ve not managed to get myself into a routine. I’ve not tried Yoga by Adrienne, although i’ve heard a lot about it. Love the sound of that beauty package/website. Off to check it out!

    Happy birthday to your eldest girl! I hope she enjoyed her sleepover and had lots of fun with her friends. My littlest was born on 2nd January – I missed New Years Day by 45 minutes and I was so disappointed at the time as I really wanted a New Year baby. So silly! I’ve been practising yoga for three years now – I started six months after my Dad died in the hope that it might help me heal and I can honestly say that it’s saved me. Keep practising – you might be surprised at how quickly you can try out the more advanced poses 🙂
