Weekly Roundup 2016 #1

Even though I've been doing this blog for over... 7 years, I've never done like a weekly favourites or a weekly roundup. I used to do a little series called Hots or Nots but that didn't really have much sticking power.


So I thought I'd see if I could stick to doing this post, once a week.

Let's see how it goes.

Sonos Play 1

Funny that my number one fave thing from the past week is a music system, but it really has changed my life. I bought the Sonos Play 1 with some Christmas money I got for Christmas. I was looking for any kind of wireless speakers really and the Sonos stand was the first I saw in John Lewis.
It's pretty easy to set up, amazing sound quality and a nice size. Only downside is that you can't input any other sources (can't listen to a movie on my laptop and play it through the speakers) which sucks a bit, but ah well.

Outlet Shopping

When I go back to Liverpool for Christmas, my family and I always like to visit Cheshire Oaks and go to the Nike store. This year it was better than ever. I managed to pick up a couple of pieces from the NikeLab x Sacai collection for crazy cheap. I got a jumper (which I had in my basket - glad I didn't buy it!) and a dress. No doubt I'll be featuring the pieces on the blog in the next coming weeks so y'all can see.

Attempting to get fit for 2016

I put on a fair amount of weight over the past year, a stone to be exact >.< My boyfriend is always moaning at me saying, Lauren come for a run with me. Like, I like running, but on my own - I'm not good at running with people. Especially him, he's a good runner. So to kinda tick off a few boxes, I signed us up for indoor climbing lessons and I just got back from the first one. It went well, I'm not bad at climbing, but the thing I'm not good at, is belaying. I'm just not good at coordinating my hands. I got it in the end anyway. I'm looking forward to the next lessons and think it'll be a nice little Sunday evening activity to do. We're going to the Klimhal in Sloterdijk, doing the four week beginners course. Check out the site for more info.

Rodial stemcell super-food glam balm

Woash what a mouthful. I got this from the You Magazine Advent calendar that my mum gets me every year (thanks Mozzy) and I bloody love it. It's lovely to use instead of lipbalm, and you can also use it on dry skin.  I've had a few things from Rodial before and I just love the packaging; it's super premium and super simple. Wonderful.

Christmas at home

I know technically, this wasn't within the past week but I've been at home for the past two weeks celebrating Christmas and New Years with my lovely family in Liverpool. It's something I look forward to every year, counting down the days with my mum every morning on text from about 30 sleeps out (no, seriously.) Being at home is so good. Living away in another country really makes you appreciate and love the time that you get to spend with your family. Not sure who reads this really from my family but much love to my Mum, Dad, Paul, Lee, Coco & Lola xxx

That's it for now. I have every intention to keep posting in 2016, as I really let it slip last year. Positive posting from now on.

P.S Sorry for no images - my camera is charging. Promise some next week :*
