The week that was…super exciting!

in The week that was...

Happy Friday!  I am so glad the weekend is here.  After having last week off from work it has really knocked me for six this week so I am looking forwards to resting up a bit.

The week started off great when the sun decided to come out.  I decided to wear my new stripy maxi dress with my red ballerina pumps. 


A huge dose of green tea in my new mug also set my up for my day!

The major thing about this week is that I got my beautiful new car!I’m still getting used to driving it around as it is a lot bigger to what I am used to, but I love it.

On Wednesday my second guest post for amadoloves went live.


This particular post is all about how to get great glowing skin from the food that you eat. So go an check it out if you haven’t already!

The girls at amadoloves also wrote a fabulous guest post for me about vintage wedding inspiration which obviously I am all over right now, thanks girls!

To my surprise I found that I have been featured on Cosmo website as part of their food bloggers hot topics post.


I feel totally honoured and chuffed to mentioned by such an amazing magazine!

This week I have been going mad about cherries…


My local green grocer was selling them for 39p per 100g so obviously I had to stock up on these juicy ruby red lovelies, yum!

I’ve also been on a bit of a socca high this week too, just cannot get enough of the stuff…


…plain socca with soya mince in a passata sauce and steamed asparagus.

Yesterday the post woman was my very best friend as she delivered to me a haul of E.L.F cosmetics which I have been sent to review.


I have heard such great things about this cosmetic range so I cannot wait to try these baby’s out!


I was practically bouncing off the walls after this soya gingerbread latte.  It tasted gorgeous though!

My Sharpham Park giveaway also came to an end this week so it is time to announce the winner…


….Congrats to Bronagh!  Could you please send me your details so I can arrange to get these sent out to you asap!

Has anything exciting happened to you this week?

Have you tried E.L.F. cosmetics before?  What did you make of them?

Sounds like you’ve had a great week :D.

Those cherries look so good! I really want some now!!

Thanks! They are gorgoeus!


Bronagh June 15, 2012 at 9:10 AM

Well I’d say the most exciting thing that has happened to me this week is winning your giveaway :D Thanks chick! I’m also jealous that you can get cherries so cheaply… they’re my fav fruit at the moment (paired with my all time love, the persimmon!)


Jemma @ Celery and Cupcakes June 17, 2012 at 4:36 PM

Awww your welcome! Cherries can be so expensive which why I just had to stock up at those bargain prices!


Lara June 15, 2012 at 9:15 AM

Wooohooo congratulations on the Cosmo feature, very exciting.


Jemma @ Celery and Cupcakes June 17, 2012 at 4:36 PM

Thank you! :D

Looks like a great week! I’m loving socca right now too! That is such a bargain on the cherries!


Jemma @ Celery and Cupcakes June 17, 2012 at 4:35 PM

I know I just had to stock up on them! :D


Laura@keepinghealthygettingstylish June 15, 2012 at 10:50 AM

I haven’t tried the ELF cosmetics but the brushes have been pretty good. My grandma gave me a load of cherries this week, delicious!


Jemma @ Celery and Cupcakes June 17, 2012 at 4:34 PM

I think the brushes are great for the price. Cherries are just fab right now!


IHeartVegetables June 15, 2012 at 4:48 PM

Congrats on buying a car!!! That’s so exciting :)

And that’s so awesome that you were features on Cosmo!!! You totally deserve it!


LilyLipstick June 15, 2012 at 5:39 PM

Those cherries look so good! I really like ELF make-up, its so reasonably priced and while I haven’t totally loved all the products I’ve found some absolute favourites. The brushes are great, too. x


Jemma @ Celery and Cupcakes June 17, 2012 at 4:33 PM

I’ve been really impressed with the brushes so far! :D


Love Live & Learn June 15, 2012 at 7:49 PM

Sounds like a fabulous week! Congrats on the new car – so exciting!

I love your maxi dress, I’m a huge fan of both maxi dresses and nautical stripes so it’s perfect to me :-) I’ll be interested to see what you think of the ELF stuff, I ordered a couple of products from them this week too.

Well done on the Cosmo mention, that’s pretty exciting! You deserve it :-)


Jemma @ Celery and Cupcakes June 17, 2012 at 4:33 PM

Thank you! :D I have been really impressed with the ELF products so far.


Holly Golightly June 16, 2012 at 11:55 AM

I have tried elf, great prices. I find some items fabulous and others more of a miss. I love the liner in pots, the bronze/blush duo and the 3 in 1 stick you got.


Jemma @ Celery and Cupcakes June 17, 2012 at 4:32 PM

The 3 in 1 stick is such a great product, I love it!


eatinglikeahorse June 16, 2012 at 9:42 PM

wow, that’s great about Cosmo! I’ll read the healthy skin piece too in a minute, sounds fab. I love that top pic with the cool mug and the dress, hopefully the sun’ll come back out again soon :-)


Jemma @ Celery and Cupcakes June 17, 2012 at 4:31 PM

I hope so too!


daisychain June 17, 2012 at 9:13 AM

My Grandad came round for dinner this week and presented me with a huge punnet of fresh cherries, I cannot get enough!


Jemma @ Celery and Cupcakes June 17, 2012 at 4:31 PM

I am addicted to cherries right now! :D


Kristine June 20, 2012 at 5:47 AM

What a fabulous week! Congrats on Cosmo! :)
