Dear Subway, Thanks for having a ridiculous offer where it’s cheaper for me to buy a salad and a bottle of water than just a salad on its own. Any excuse to come in and load up on gherkins and ranch dressing is a-okay by me. Love Sarah See other Friday Thanks here or visit the original inspiration for the project here.

Because we each have a Cineworld Unlimited card, Q and I watch a lot of films. We managed to rack up 52 visits to the cinema in 2013, and I watched another 30 films at home on top of that. I have a goal on my Life List to watch 500 new to me movies, so I’m slowly working my way towards that. I thought I’d do a top 5 round up of my favourite new releases of 2013, just so I can look back…Continue Reading “Favourite Films of 2013”

Check! 🙂 I bought the print of this “Seek out the joy” illustration ages ago and have wanted it as a tattoo ever since. Marc is incredibly cool about people getting tattoos of his work so I added it to my Life List thinking it would be fun to check it off one day. I have seven other tattoos already, so this shouldn’t come as much of a surprise – I find them a bit addictive?

Check 🙂 Aren’t they cute? I won them in a competition on Hayley’s blog so while I technically didn’t buy them I’m still ticking this off. I’m actually hoping that this will be the last year that I wear glasses, bring on the laser eye surgery in 2015! If anyone is wondering they’re Victoria in Marmalade by London Retro, and were kindly provided by My Optique. Thanks so much you guys!

It’s the end of 2013, whoop! This year has been so up and down for so many people I know – we bought a house but lost a friend to cancer, my parents got a divorce but then #ChongCat entered our lives… a real swings and roundabouts year for us. I for one am not sorry to see the back of 2013 to be honest. I think I’m taking more positives from it than negatives (phew) and with that in mind, here’s a quick list…Continue Reading “2013 Review + 2014 Resolutions”

Dear hot water, Thanks for feeling extra luxurious after being missing for a few days while we had our new boiler installed. That first hot shower was incredible. Love Sarah See other Friday Thanks here or visit the original inspiration for the project here.
