Brunchtime bonding and pedicures…

Hi guys! So, as you might know if you read my last post, I FINISHED MY GCSES YESTERDAY! I am going to do a post about that later tonight, but I am just so happy I have to let everybody know! ūüôā

So, because I had two days between my penultimate and very last (!) exam, on Wednesday I decided to do something with my friend. Initially we¬†wanted to go out for lunch, but then I craved pancakes, so we arranged to go to brunch. 10:15 was the time¬†I told¬†my friend to come pick me up, so I went to bed and set my alarm for 8:00, to give me time to get ready.¬†At 8:30 my final alarm went off,¬†which I turned off, but must of drifted back into a deep sleep because 6 phone calls, 5 calls to my home phone and however many times the doorbell rang, I was still asleep. I woke up to the phone home ringing for the sixth time, admittedly quite confused, so I rolled over and checked my phone. It was 10:31! I had numerous texts from my friend who was waiting on my doorstep (again, I am SO sorry!) so I had to¬†leg it¬†downstairs and let her in. Surprisingly, she wasn’t actually too mad, (or so she says…) which I obviously love her for! I’m pretty sure I would have left way before so she’s an extremely¬†good friend, while I am¬†now a¬†very bad one!

When we were walking to the bus stop, about 10 minutes after she arrived which, I have to say, was very quick for getting ready for me, I realised I had forgotten the sunglasses. These aviator sunglasses were ¬£2.99 from H&M, and my sister had¬†a pair of silver ones with a silver lens which actually suited me (I’m not the most photogenic sunglasses person). Yes they are from the kids section, ok?¬†I loved them so much, plus they fit me properly, so I asked my mum to buy me a pair, but they bought me a gold pair with pink sides. I tried them on and they didn’t fit properly so I wanted to exchange them, but my sister¬†won’t let me get¬†the same pair as her. What do you think? Can I get the same sunglasses as my 10 year old sister? (It does sound kind of weird) Leave a comment!

We finally arrived at Maggie’s, and because I made her wait, I bought my friend a smoothie, and I got a chocolate milkshake. And of course, the reason we had brunch in the first place, pancakes.


We both had these Strawberry and Chocolate Pancake Stax, which consisted of three thick pancakes piled on top of each other, smothered in rich chocolate sauce, and of course, strawberry slices. Do I need to sell these any more? Note: no I do not. They were delicious and now I want more. ūüôā

After I got back from brunch, my beautiful mother decided to treat me to a pedicure. We went to this little place she had been to 4 weeks before, and I was excited because the last time I had a pedicure was when I was 10, and that was only a mini one anyway, so it was a new experience for me. My mum chose her colour, a hot pink, quite quickly, but, faced with walls of nail polish, I took a little bit longer. I eventually chose a periwinkle purple from China Glaze that I thought was very cute; then came the fun bit. We sat in our chairs, and to make the experience¬†even better, they turned out to be massage chairs. I didn’t realise how tense¬†I was until it was turned on and it got to work on unravelling my knotted back. I guess that’s what 5 weeks of sitting at a desk does to you. As for the actual pedicure, it was very relaxing but instead of describing it, which could be kind of gross because… well, it’s feet, here are¬†some pictures:

And there’s the finished product! I think it’s so pretty! (Also, it is more purple in real life)


In the evening, we went to watch my brother play cricket, and it was such beautiful weather that I had to take this.

Wednesday was a good day for me, even though I did eventually have to do some work. ūüė¶¬†I hope you enjoyed this and have a lovely weekend!

Thanks for reading, see you soon!
