1. Celebrating my niece's first birthday.
Little Ivy Bo turned one on Thursday (I know I can't believe it either) and to celebrate the fam headed to Billy Bob's parlour and Hesketh Farm Park. Despite the clouds we still had a pretty awesome day and I'm not sure who enjoyed it more, Ivy or us adults.
2. Superdrug vitamin E hot cloth cleanser.
I've been struggling with my skin for a few months now and nothing I buy seems to work. After reading numerous reviews raving about how good Superdrug's hot cloth cleanser is I decided to buy it despite the main ingredient being cocoa butter (which ain't great for spot prone skin I've heard). Anyway I've been using it for a week now and my skin feels as soft as a babe's bum - Plus *touches wood* there haven't been any more angry outbreaks so here's hoping I've found my holy grail product.
3. Ben & Jerry's ice cream.
So it's shark week this week and as per usual I want to eat anything chocolatey within a ten mile radius. Luckily for me Ben & Jerry's is on offer for £2.50 at Tesco's (until the 22nd of May by the way, you're welcome) so I made sure that I had some chocolate fudge brownie ready and waiting in the freezer. I bloody love Ben & Jerry's ice cream but can only bring myself to buy it when it's on offer - The wait makes it taste that much better though.
4. Buying tickets to see Katherine Ryan in New York
Katherine Ryan is one of Jody and I's favourite comedians so when I saw on Twitter that she would be doing a show in NYC whilst we were there I was straight on the tinterweb snapping up tickets. She's going to be performing at the apparently legendary Carolines stand up comedy club and it's just made me even more excited for our upcoming trip.
5. The Bourne Identity
People have been telling me to watch The Bourne Identity (starring Matt Damon) for years and I finally watched it on Saturday night - OMG. I really don't know what took me so long because it's definitely my kind of movie and y'know, Matt Damon <3
