Here Is The News #3

Here is the News

Blogland Brilliance

Potato, Cheese and Ham Croquettes anyone?

Michelle's got the perfect few lines to cheer yourself up.

Bee offers some great tips on how to become an avid reader.

Bonjour Blogger has the solution for getting your Instagram pictures showing on Twitter. I didn't even know you could do this but I'm going to set my recipe up tonight!

Angela went strawberry picking at Chosen Hill Farm, with the most plump and juicy looking strawberries you'll ever see!

Currently Coveting

Courtesy of Martin Lewis' Money Saving Expert site, Gourmet Burger Kitchen are offering two burgers for 10 squid - click here for the voucher.

I really like this Potting Shed Birds duvet set from Asda; have to convince Andrew first though that "no we really don't have too many bedding sets".

Joe Brown's sale leaflet popped through my door the other day, forcing me to purchase this unseasonal jumper.

And El from A Thrifty Mrs compiled list of gorgeous winter coats, one of which I went on and bought (number 5 but in red).

Exciting Events

Weston Super Mare's annual sand sculpture festival is on at the moment and this year's theme is 'Once Upon A Time'. I managed to get a couple of cheap tickets through Living Social so we're planning to head off there one afternoon next week.

Lauren from The Emerald Dove is organising a South West Bloggers Picnic in Exeter on Saturday 30th August. I can't make that date but I bet it will be a lovely day!

Interesting Info

This story from the BBC is quite fascinating - the Cornish beaches where Lego keeps washing up.
Remind me to keep an eye out next time we go to Cornwall.

Did you read Goosebumps books when you were younger? There's a film being made with Jack Black playing author, R.L. Stine - the first pictures were released last week.

London's first games cafe has opened in Hackney with 500 tabletop games to play. I think it's a fab idea, if any of you go there, let me know what it's like!

Life Lessons

I quite like this hair tutorial from Kiss and Make Up; she does make it look incredibly easy. I gave it a go at the weekend and ended looking a bit like a soggy spaniel - methinks I need to practice a little bit more...

Alice put together a brilliant list of 'alternative things women need to know' - definitely a list of things we could all do to remember.

Have you spotted anything interesting this week?


  1. I didn't know about the Goosebumps film but I'm now very excited about it! I've clicked on the duvet cover link... that might have been a dangerous thing to do! xxx

    1. It's gorgeous isn't it? Such a pretty print :-) xxx

  2. Great post! Thanks for mentioning the event. :)
    I go to Weston all the time and the Sand Sculpture Festival is always so exciting.

  3. Thanks for mentioning me, Louisa! I was half-thinking of going to the sand sculptures on Monday but I need to take Dave's car to the garage. (Again.) Maybe we can squeeze it in before we go to Cornwall on Friday?

    (I saw the Lego story, too. Will definitely be looking out for some on the beaches.)
