the sunday review 05

For me, half term can take the form of one of two routes. Either; 
- lazing around for its entire duration, minimal plans, optimum duvet-meets-laptop time
- filled to the brinks of things to do, plans with multiple people and usually a day or two outside of London

Needless to say, this week I chose the latter, yet mixed it up a bit with some serious American show-watching (extraordinary stuff, right?) I could rave for days about how much TV I watch on my loyal friend Cucirca so I'll just keep it quick. Suits. I started watching it on say...Wednesday or Thursday, I really can't remember, and I'm on to Season 2 already. Had I not made plans I think I may have caught up. It's brilliant. For those who watch it (don't write any spoilers, pretty please) and for those who don't, give it a try. The pilot episode will lasso you in in the same way it did to me.

I mentioned in last week's review about my first LFW fail, but luckily Monday at Zeynep Tosun was more successful. Think shades of sienna, camel and ivory with ice blue to finish - it was beautiful. I finally got to catch up with Sophie as well, which was lovely. Expect an outfit post from that day to follow! (Spoiler: mummy galaxies xo makes her second get excited).

Wednesday saw me catch up with Gracie, who I featured on here this time last year. I popped up to Birmingham by train and we chilled at the Bullring, ate gorgeous burgers (burgers are always gorgeous in my opinion, but these ones were special) and devoured large slices of cake. The day was fab until my train journey home: I came down a couple of hours earlier than expected, using my train ticket I bought only to have the ticket guy declare I owed the train service £10. I handed over that for him to change his mind to £22.75 :( I am now a handbag's worth poorer but have learnt a lesson - either purchase a flexible return ticket or just stay for a bit longer.

Now I'm sure you've seen the trailer for Endless Love - if not, what are you doing? Alex Pettyfer is fine and after watching it on Thursday with my friend Sophie we both remembered why we love him. Now neither of us have seen the original film, the one it was based on, but despite the bad reviews (which we read after watching the film) we loved it. If you're looking for a film that's out at the moment I'd definitely give it a try!

So that's all I've been up to this week - I'd love to hear what you have been up to.
