Little Five Friday #5

Hello lovelies, this week has been kind of exciting and kind of scary! Mark had some good news regarding a new job, in a new area..! So one of my 15 by 2015 goals will be getting ticked off (the big move!). I keep going from excited to scared and back again. I have to hand in my notice at work on Monday, and Mark is handing in his tomorrow. Then in March we'll be moving into my mum's whilst we get ourselves on our feet and I find a new job. In other exciting news, last night for the first time Rufus was following me around in his little ball - too cute!

1. A little while ago Sam sent me this book, The Book Thief by Markus Zusak.
This week I've been getting really into it, and just started Part 3. It's an
interesting and captivating read so far. It's something very different for me.

2. I've found an unhealthy addiction to Costa hot chocolate with marshmallows
no cream (yuck!). Those dark chocolate dipping sticks are divine too!

3. The lovely Sam has sent me another book to read this week, with a lovely
note. Thank you Sam!! Don't forget to donate to Samantha's JustGiving :)

4. This is my favourite combination of OPI polishes, Dulce De Leche with the
gold glitter crackle over the top. It's very chip resistant, perfect for work!

5. Because we're moving into my mum's conservatory, we needed a bed that was
multifunctional. This lovely Ikea Hemnes Day-bed will act as a sofa, a bed,
and much needed storage! It's also a good excuse to buy lovely big cushions!

What was your favourite thing about this week?

  1. That's exciting, congrats to Mark on the new job! Good luck with your job hunt too. That bed looks lovely, I'm on the lookout for a new one with drawers! Seriously need the extra storage xxx

  2. I love the pairing that you made for your nails! I'm horrible about nail colors but that looks gorgeous. That bed looks so cozy and lovely. I want it! You could push it up against a wall and make a cozy den, cute!

  3. I'm so glad the book arrived! :) And I'm pleased you are enjoying the book thief! Also, congrats on the new job - that's brilliant news!!! Can't wait to hear all about your new adventure/s! (Thanks for the mentions again too!) xxx

  4. Wow exciting news! Congratulations : )

    I think we should hold each others hands during these next few weeks, as we both find ourselves starting a brand new chapter!

    Here's to new adventures xx

  5. Ahh, your move sounds so exciting! I'm so happy for you. I can't wait until I live completely on my own and get to move to my own little space and decorate it and all that good stuff.

    That hot chocolate looks sooooo yummy- except, it is missing cream, I love lots and lots of cream on mine!

    And that nail color is so pretty- I've never tried the OPI brand.

    Also, the bed looks super super comfy! I love when they have those little compartments underneath- I should think about getting one like that. Btw, love when I hear that homes have conservatories- they just seem like such a British thing- I would love to have a house with one someday :) xxx

  6. I actually haven't painted my nails for over a week, so proud but I'm craving some gold glittery nails! They're in a lot better condition now though. I really need to read The Book Thief before I watch the film, which looks really good! Congratulations for the job! xx

  7. I love the bed you've chosen - it looks very cute and practical too! I have The Book Thief on my Kindle ready to go, I'm sure I'll enjoy it :) <3 xxx

  8. Are you excited about moving? :) I would love to move somewhere new, somewhere I can experience life in the way I want to. love the little bird in the first photo <3 xx

  9. Oh I really want to read The Book Thief and I am so jealous of that bed!! Good luck with the move!

  10. I need to read The Book Thief ASAP... I feel tempted to watch the film first but... not a good a idea, really, is it? Oh my, that bed is THE bed, the perfect one!

  11. The Book Thief sounds really interesting from what I have heard! Would be great to read and I'd like to see the movie. Such pretty nails. Also like the bed, Ikea is such a fun store.

  12. I've watched The Book Thief but I haven't read the book! The film is amazing. That bed is so clever, I want one!
