Life Rambles: Friday Favourites #83

First up on my favourites list this week is a work project. Yeah, sorry I’m going to talk about my day job. But this week has been the launch week of a big project, one that I’ve been working on for the best part of a year, so the fact that it’s finally reached this week is a bit of a miracle. Honestly I didn’t think it would ever happened. Anyway it’s been super crazy this week because of it, but hooray that it’s here finally.

Number two on the favourites list is baking. I spent Wednesday night whipping up some fairy cakes for a birthday. I went with my favourite chocolate cake recipe and topped them with vanilla frosting and maltesers. Simple and delicious. I may have scoffed two of these on Wednesday night, just for taste testing purposes of course!

Next up I wanted to mention Baby Driver, a film I watched on Sunday. If I’m honest I really didn’t want to watch this film. But my sisters and I wanted to have a cake and cinema catch up and this was the only film that worked. Fi and Becca were both up for it, so I figured I’d just go along and see what it was all about. Anyway I was very pleased I did, as the film was excellent. Very stylised, with an epic soundtrack and it just gripped me in a totally unexpected way. Which is why it’s on the favourites list this week. I’d say if you’re in any doubt about watching it, then definitely go for it.

Next let’s talk about my Tuesday night, it was a pretty excellent one all round. First up I met some of my favourite people for dinner. Which consisted of a trip to Bill’s for gin and food. I went for the open club sandwich off their pre-theatre menu and it was so good. The perfect early supper treat. We then preceded to do ALL the talking before heading home as train buddies. We were definitely those annoying people in the 4 people seats, laughing loudly and talking super fast! Now this would clearly make the favourites list for this week all by itself, and it does. 

But I also want to share one more thing from that night. You see I was super early to our catch up so busied myself by pursuing the nearby shops. Well I only went and found a pair of shoes that I have been lusting after for ages. These are them. Anyway I pondered over buying them for a while and then decided that I should just bite the bullet and go for it. Because if you find the perfect shoes, they must be purchased ASAP. That’s totally the rule, right? Plus I had a voucher, so I would not be paying full price. Well do you know what, I don’t know why I worried so much, because I got to the till and it turns out my voucher covered almost all of the cost. I had to pay 55p; 50p for the shoes and 5p for a carrier bag. I don’t know why I even thought about it!


The final thing on this week’s favourites list is ice cream. Who’s making the most of working in central London, surrounded by all of the eateries? Me, that’s who! This week I popped out at lunch for a sneaky ice cream treat and it was one of my best ideas ever. I wandered into Bloomsbury for a cone with two scoops; chocolate peanut butter and stracciatella and I am seriously happy with my life choices right now. 

How has your week been? Have you had lots of adventures, or foodie treats too?
