Lifestyle: A Peek In To My Life #6

It's been far too long since my last 'Peek in to my life' post. So I thought it was about time for an update on the things I've been loving, along with what I've been up to.
 If you missed my previous post, have a nosy here.

Let's get started...
As you may know, if you are a regular keep calm reader, me and my boyfriend are box sets addicts!
We go through so many different series, from comedy and drama, to fast-paced action, we love a bit of everything!
Our latest re-obsession is How I met your mother. We are both totally addicted to this show.
We have already watched it from start to finish twice before, and we've come full circle again, and have just finished series nine. 
If you have never seen How I met your mother, you are missing out. I'll give you a little peek into what the show is all about!
The premise is the telling of the story of how Ted Mosby meets his wife. The story is told by 'future Ted' to his future children, although the series is set in the present day. 
(Well.. sort of. The present day was 2005 when the series began!)
You follow Ted and his best friends, Marshall, Lily, Robin and Barney, through the highs and lows of their twenty-something years, living in New York City.
From bar fights and one night stands, to weddings, parties, too many nights out and everything in between. 
It's a funny, witty and damn right silly show, which never fails to make me smile!
Give it a watch, you'll love it.

As I mentioned in my last peek in to my life post, I am a bit obsessed with Nakd bars. 
Well Nakd have only gone and done it again with their 'Nakd nibbles'. 
They are amazing! If you are partial to a Nakd bar, you will bloody love these nibbles.
I am addicted to the Salted caramel and Toffee treat flavours. 
They taste very chocolatey, and have a lovely chewy texture, almost like actual toffee!
Try them now, you'll thank me later!

I found this mascara hidden at the back of my beauty drawer, a couple of weeks ago, and I haven't stopped using it since!
I love the curl and lift it gives my lashes, which makes my eyes look bigger, and my lashes more defined. I also love the wand, as it's easy to manoeuvre and coats my lashes with ease. 
A winner in my book. 

Fitness: Country Walks
I usually work out at home, in my bedroom. But as it's been so hot and sticky lately, I have been taking full advantage, and getting outside for some much needed fresh air.
I have been loving going for long, country walks in the woods.
I am so lucky to live in such a beautiful, picturesque area, full of amazing walks.

To be honest, I have never used a lip liner before. I have never really had the need or time for one, as I usually just pop my lippie on and head out of the door. 
(To be even more honest, I was worried that I'd end up looking like Ronald McDonald...)
But, I received this beauty in a gift set as a Christmas present from my sister. 
So I thought I would give this whole lip liner malarkey a whirl. 
I am in love with the colour, as I think it's the perfect nude shade for my lips.
It gives them a subtle hint of colour, which can be built up or left as a natural tint.
It also pairs beautifully with my (raved about a million times!) favourite Elizabeth Arden lipstick in 'Desert Rose'.
*The picture above is how the shade looks on my lips. 

I hope you enjoyed this 'A peek in to my life' post. What do you think of my current loves? Do you love going for long walks in the summer? What have you been up to lately?

I'd love to know, leave me a lovely comment below.

  1. I think the best thing with How I Met Your Mother is how it is silly but has real things and now and again downright emotional episodes (how your mother met me episode), although maybe not a good thing when you're sat sobbing!

    1. So true! I love that episode, made me well up! The mother is such a babe :) x

  2. I think I watched all 9 seasons of How I Met Your Mother in less time than I finished any other tv series EVER. Amazing show:)

    1. Haha it's so addictive! Will always be one of my favourites :) x

  3. That lipliner looks stunning on you :)
