Friday Finds

I thought I’d try out a new weekly post to add to my Sunday Songs so here is the premiere of Friday Finds!

This post will be an opportunity for me to talk about things that I found during the week – books, films, TV shows, clothes, products, music etc and hopefully talk them out of my system before they become an obsession πŸ™‚

Ok so this week…

I listened to …

Charlie Simpson’s album Young Pilgrim

Charlie started out his musical life in boy band Busted before joining a heavy rock band. This is his debut solo album and it’s far superior to any of his previous musical journeys. Heartfelt, mostly acoustic and solely written and performed by Charlie, it’s a gorgeous record and well worth picking up.

I watched ….

Absolutely Fabulous was a 90’s sitcom starring Jennifer Saunders and Joanna Lumley as heavy drinking and heavy smoking best friends. I’ve been re-watching the box set and this show still makes me laugh out loud. Completely crazy and utterly over-the-top. Rumours persist a new series is on its way, fingers crossed!

I brought …

Boots was offering a free Rimmel eyeliner if you spend over Β£6 so I ended up with two mascaras, blush, eye shadow and lip gloss oops! But at least I got my free eye liner πŸ™‚

I read …

Bree Despain’s The Lost Saint – the second novel in the Grace Divine series. I thought this was a solid book, as good as the first novel combining romance, mystery and some great action tied in with religious mythology. Worth a read.

What do you think of this theme? What have you discovered this week?

  1. Oh I’ll have to look out for Charlie’s cd… I rather like the whole acoustic theme.

    I suppose the only thing I have discovered recently was the Benefit range in Debenhams…. whilst on a hunt for a new face cream that I wasn’t allergic to the nice lady behind the Benefit counter helped me and then invited me to a make-up lesson…. I must say I am rather hooked ( although I don’t wear it daily because I’d have to get up at 6am if I did the whole routine! ). More importantly I now know how to put make-up on so I don’t look like an 80’s throw back!

  2. Love this idea. It will help guide me in my journeys. I don’t know what I have discovered this week, but my mind is a little preoccupied. Oh, wait, I discovered “Misfits” and watched every episode. And you all thought I was packing. πŸ˜‰

    Love Ab Fab!
