Weekly Round-Up: #34


This week has been full of ups and downs and has included lots of lovely food!

Food: Sunday Roast, Beef Casserole & Giraffe

My little brother was back from China for a few days to renew his visa. I haven’t seen him in close to a year so we decided to take him out and treat him to a much-craved Sunday roast dinner.


We went to a local village pub near to where our parents live and filled our plates with a delicious roast carvery with all the trimmings. My brother devoured his as he really misses British food since living in China.

During the week I decided to put our slow cooker to good use and prepared a beef casserole. I was at home all day so the mouth-watering slow cooking aromas filled the house! So delicious and definitely worth the wait.


On Thursday I managed to muster the energy to meet up with a good friend for dinner. It was a great opportunity for her to see my new house and for us have a proper long overdue catch up.

We decided to eat in Giraffe and I ordered the sesame salmon with wasabi rice & teriyaki green vegetables which was very tasty.

Homebase: Step Ladder & Costa Coffee

Saturday was home decoration day and our mission was to put another coat of magnolia paint on the spare room which will be the study/office. 

You may not know but I am somewhat vertically challenged standing at the grand height of 5’1” (at a stretch…) therefore I needed some sort of step platform device to aid my painting ability.

We found ourselves in Homebase which conveniently had a lovely Costa cafe. I ordered a vanilla latte with soy milk which was a great energy boost for our decorating.



This week saw my first delivery of the Nailbox monthly beauty subscription box. If you missed my full review then check out my Nailbox – January 2016: The Unveiling.


Above is my first attempt using the products in my Nailbox – what do you think?

I hope you have enjoyed my weekly round-up. How was your week? I love reading and replying to your comments.
