Music Monday: Miles Kane - Come Closer

Miles Kane's album is possibly my most over-played album of the year, I love it. Also for how much I play it I haven't got tired of it and neither has anyone else who happens to be around when I play it. It's an infectious sound and I'm hooked.

Became addicted to these this week, the Mint ones are especially yummy. Nom nom!

I have decided that there is no point buying summer clothes unless you are planning to spend a large proportion of the year in a warmer country. I've been back in jumpers this week and my coat has had fair usage too. We did though manage to get a sunny, rain free day at the zoo. I love the zoo, my favourites the tigers were happy laying about in the sunshine and I would have happily joined them - they wouldn't eat me would they?

Music Monday: Powderfinger - Up & Down & Back Again

Yes I've been doing these Music Mondays for some time now and this is my first Powderfinger one. Are you proud? I am. Yes I love Powderfinger possibly more than I love cake. Put them together and it makes a very happy me :-)

I just had to get this ;-)

The weather this week has been cold, wet and bleurgh really but today the sun is out and apparently it will be nice again tomorrow too so make sure you are all out enjoying it! I'm still chuckling away at the picture above, it's great isn't it? Any excuse to not do house work ;-)

Review: Very Lazy Red Thai Curry

When this Very Lazy Red Thai Curry arrived I was looking after my goddaughter for the day and she was quite intrigued as to why someone was sending me jars of food stuffs through the post. More so she wanted us to make it which we did but this is possibly the toughest person to try this as said goddaughter does not like curry!

Where have you been?

Image from HERE

I had an email this week asking me "Where have you been?" to my blog email addy. Yes. I hold my hands up I did say that I wasn't going to be posting every day but I did expect I would be around more than I have been. My bad. Sorry. Thanks for the email though, much appreciated. She's lovely.

Music Monday: Nina Simone - Sinnerman

Growing up I had few, actually it might be zero jazz influences so I didn't hear a Nina Simone song until I was nearly into my twenties. I probably had heard them before but had no one to say that's who it is. So I was late to hear and fully appreciate a Nina Simone song. My first was probably "Feeling Good" but this one "Sinnerman" is my favourite.

mypure Review: Acorelle Ingrown Hair Treatment

After my previous review for Acorelle Epilation I then decided to try this Acorelle Ingrown Hair Treatment as I had noticed that after waxing I was getting a few problem areas. The first thing with this was there are no English instructions on the bottle, whilst it's not difficult to work out what you do with it. I did find it slightly un-nerving that I couldn't make out the instructions.

Music Monday: The Knack - My Sharona

This song will get stuck in your head.Well it does with me anyway. It's been covered by Pearl Jam and Nirvana to name just two and even has featured in The Simpsons. Those who have seen Super 8 will also quite possibly have the "My Sharona" scene as one of their favourites from it.

I have a slight obsession with these and one is simply not enough... one box I mean ;-)

So I have kept to my word and been quiet on the blog this week and my OCD nature struggled each morning and I was tempted to post something but I didn't give in. I'll be about a bit more next week as I have some reviews to post up.

Music Monday: Fleetwood Mac - The Chain

With the somewhat unsurprising news that BBC will end up sharing Formula One coverage with Sky I thought this would be the perfect Music Monday track. The Chain features in the BBC titles sequence for F1 coverage and when F1 moved to ITV many missed the familiar F1 theme.
