Sunday Schmooze #002

Just where has the week gone? I feel a hell of a lot better than I did a mere seven days ago and my general outlook is heaps brighter - most probably down to the Sunday roast currently inside my stomach - and I'm pretty chirpy despite the fact it's January. My obsession with avocado is stronger than ever and I've pretty much overdosed on guacamole this week (can there possibly be such a thing.. answers on a postcard). With a bit of guesswork and curiosity I added some garlic into one batch and it was a mistake and a half. I still feel sick thinking about it. And coriander is banned from the kitchen at all times (I tell the staff in Nando's I'm allergic just so it won't be in my salad!). A ghastly herb.

As for the lens I was blabbering on about last week, it's now mine - I don't hang about do I? I decided on the Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM and I bought from an eBay UK seller to avoid a longer wait or warranty issues. I'm really happy I bought it and I can't believe just how quiet the focus is; it's going to be brilliant for filming. It's just a case of hitting the record button and all the rest of it now. I promise I'll be more regular on YouTube from here on in!

I've been really excited about a couple of spring beauty launches this week. YSL - with model of the moment Cara - have released an abundance of pretty pinks, peaches and corals for their spring drop and oh boy is it beautiful. I've been playing around with a little selection this week and I can't wait to share my findings on that one! Elegant Touch are bringing out a new wave of stick-on manicures very soon, and with the face of the campaign being the effortlessly cool and beautiful Jameela Jamil (who is just as funny, laid back and lovely in real life as you might expect), I can see this going down a storm. There's something for everyone and she's a truly great fit for the collection - but more on that soon!

My calendar is full to the brim this week and I can't wait to get stuck in! But for now I'm in the middle of a trash telly binge, catching up on CBB. Tea, bed and the electric blanket are working with me on this one. It's winter, okay?

  18. Defo share your love for avocado and that lens seems amazing! X


  19. totally agree with you, YSL spring collection looks so pretty full of vibrant pinks and purples, can't wait to test a few of the products out myself

  20. I really like these catch up posts. I'm an avocado fanatic too, I have to limit myself to half of one a day or I'd get out of control. Looooove homemade guac, I always use garlic but only a really teeny amount for a bit of tang, I've made that mistake of using too much too and it's oh so disappointing! I also HATE coriander so I'm with you on that, whenever I have an Indian meal it's starts with the obligatory removal of all the coriander.
