It's Friday, Friday, gotta get down etc etc.

Hey hey hey!

I was just wondering what everyone else gets up to on their days off from work? I'm off today, and so far the most I've done is make some cakes and play a whole lotta Mass Effect 2. Am I the only person who is this lazy? My job can be pretty hard-going at times, but I sometimes feel like I should do more with my days off...

Speaking of making cakes, what's everyone's favourite cake recipes? Recently I've started making blueberry muffins, and my god they are excellent! It's a Hummingbird bakery recipe, and it's actually fairly easy to follow. I've also recently acquired Mary Berry's baking book, and I can't WAIT to try out some of the fab recipes I've seen :)

And what do folk have planned for the weekend? I'm going to be working 3 shifts in the space of 2 days, then after I finish work on Sunday, I'm going out for steaks with Kris as a treat for said shifts. Yum yum yum!

So I totes need to post more often...

I am terrible for remembering to use this, but I am going to make a concerted effort to remember from now on, and also to make my posts at least moderately enjoyable to read, so on that note...

I guested on my friend Claire's blog today! I reviewed 17's Miracle Matte foundation for her a few weeks ago after I went on my Boots spree, so go forth and enjoy!

Speaking of Boots sprees, I went on a mini Max Factor one (Oooooops!), I bought myself another Max Factor False Lash Effect Mascara (I went for the purple Fusion version this time), then because Boots are giving away a free gift if you spend £15 on Max Factor, I bought myself a neutral Eye trio of theirs which I will mainly use on my brows. The free gift itself is pretty cute, you get two nail polishes (Disco Pink and a fuschia purple shade), a sample of Masterpiece Mascara and a mini black kohl pencil PLUS a £3 off voucher for future Max Factor purchases. Not too shabby eh?

In other news, drama seems to be following me around. My friend's just broken up with someone, and having been friends with them both, Kris (my boyfriend) and I seem to have been dragged into the middle of it. Break-ups are tough enough, without dragging others into it and trying to play people off against your ex. Quick question: are we truly capable of having amicable relationships with our exes?

Hope everyone's having a good week so far!
