This Week I... (#46)

Went to a waterpark.  Me and the boyfriend went to Splashdown this week and it was soooo much fun. Yes, it's probably aimed at a slightly younger target audience but we genuinely had the best time. Side note; the last time I went was coincidentally also the last time I wrote one of these This Week I post's, back in 2014. It's fair to say not a lot has changed there, which is marvellous, as it was just as good as I remembered. 

Drank way too many cocktails. One of my best friends is spending a month in Ecuador this summer, so on Wednesday we went out for drinks to see him off. We went to Turtle Bay, and it's fair to say we were all slightly worse for wear when we left. They were 2-4-1, how could we resist? If you ever get a chance to go, I highly recommend the Raspberry Reggae, and the Reggae Rum Punch.

Have got back into OITNB. I watched the entirety of seasons 1 and 2 when they came out, but only watched a couple of episodes in the third as I found it really dull to be honest. Butttt, due to the hype surrounding the newest season, I'm desperately trying to finish it so that I can get up to speed. Plus, where I'm no longer tied to revision, I've got more free time than I know what to do with, so it's been a great way to spend a few hours. PS if you've already seen it, please no spoilers! 

Discovered NYX at my local Boots. I've seen so many posts about this once, stupidly-difficult-to-get-hold-of-in-the-UK brand, and when I heard they were coming to the UK, it's fair to say I was more than a little excited. I've heard soooo much about the Matte Lip Creams, and I can't wait to give them a go, Stockholm I'm looking at you. If you've tried anything of the range, please do let me know your thoughts, as I don't really know where to start! (Besides getting one of everything, sorry savings!)

Have been doing GCSE geography. This week I've spent quite a lot of time helping my sister with her homework, and weirdly I've been kind of enjoying it. Geography was the subject I did best at at GCSE and it's scary how much you remember without realising. However, it's fair to say I'm glad those days are over as 'Longshore Drift' never was (and still isn't) that exciting. 

What have you done this week?


  1. I really want to try NYX, please do a post on the best things you picked up! Alice
