My week in pictures #103 (2nd Blogiversary)

Monday, January 19

(From top left) I made chocolate and oatmeal cookies - hopefully a recipe will be on the blog tomorrow. A bargain W7 eye shadow pallet, a perfect naked 2 dupe for only £5 (got so many compliments on my make up too). Went for a walk along the beach on Saturday and took some pictures. A sparkly pink gel manicure courtesy of my flatmate Eilidh. First flat night out of the year. Finished a collage of photos on my wall on Sunday morning. 
The past week was a long one with lots going on. It was my last week at home for Christmas so my mum booked me a doctors appointment (my for flu jag) and two dentists appointments (I was supposed to go in 2013 oops!). Apart from that I made cookies, spent Wednesday evening watching 'The Great Outdoors' with Scott and visited my little cousins to give them their Christmas presents.

My parents gave me a lift back to Aberdeen on Friday afternoon. I should of been prepared but instead left all my packing for the morning so it was very rushed. Getting back to the flat felt good although I was coming down with the cold so it was early to bed. 

I didn't want to spent all of Saturday in the flat so I went for a wander down to the beach boulevard and a look in The Range which has a pretty extensive craft section (although no washi tape) on the walk home I had an ice cream on the beach and took some pictures with my SLR camera. During the holidays the baby of our flat finally turned 18 so we all headed out at night for her first taste of Aberdeens night life. While I was still feeling awful and I'm not drinking during January the night was a success. A late night call with Scott meant he was coming to visit on Sunday too.

We went to Tesco to stock up on food for dinner that night and then came back to make lasagne for tea. We then watched 8 out of 10 Cats Does Countdown (a personal favourite of ours) and were asleep before 10pm. Wild student life here guys!!

I almost forgot the good news!!! I passed all of my first semester exams - both shocked and delighted.

Also today my little blog turned two today - I would love to have done something special but I just didn't have any ideas. Can't believe I've kept this posting thing up for so long. I won't be stopping now.
