I spent the last couple of weeks in Scotland & amongst the madness there were a few things that made me happy so I thought I would do another positive post & let you all know what has been making me happy this past week.
I treated myself to this super festive Costa Coffee Travel Mug. How could I resist him!? Costa have four festive ceramic mugs to pick from & truth be told I wanted them all but as they’re £8 each I had to restrain myself. It is a travel mug but I have been using it in the house as a regular mug (if not very large) they are ceramic and very well made. I think its really nice to drink from and how can it not make you feel extremely festive. I highly recommend picking one up, they’re limited edition & I can see them becoming popular as Christmas gets closer so if you want one don’t delay. I bought mine from my local Costa.
One thing that really made my week, I was lucky enough to win a competition on Twitter and the prize was this beautiful DKNY MYNY Perfume and my name is engraved on the bottle. How cute! I have never tried any DKNY perfumes so its lovely to have won. It has Top notes of raspberry, galbanum, and pink pepper. Middle notes of Egyptian jasmine, freesia, and orris. Bottom notes of patchouli heart, vanilla absolute, creamy musks, and ambergris. I would describe it as floral but not heady or overpowering & it lasts a very long time on me & I can smell it throughout the day without reapply it. Im thrilled to have won it, thank you Debenhams.
On the 7th of November my husband took me to Glasgow to see two of our favourite bands, Biffy Clyro & Slash, Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators. The tickets went on sale to fans subscribed to the mailing list, it was a double headliner which was filmed at the O2 in Glasgow for the EMA’s which also took place in Glasgow. It was an epic night, I love seeing Biffy live & you can imagine how loud & atmospheric a gig in their native Scotland was. They played hit after hit including The Captain’, Bubbles’, ‘Who’s Got A Match’, ‘Biblical’, ‘Black Chandelier, God & Satan before finishing with Mountains. It was such a great setlist
Slash & Myles Kennedy came on after Biffy when energy levels were high & they smashed it, what a set they played. It included songs from Guns & Roses, Velvet Revolver & his current band with Myles Kenendy. I loved Nightrain, Bent to Fly, Sweet Child O Mine & Anastasia, before finishing with an epic rendition of Paradise City & It was a gig I’m so pleased I managed to see, although I wish they’d done a song together.
I was a very lucky lady this week as my brother returned from New York after running the NY Marathon in an eye watering 3:03 & he made time during his visit to the Big Apple to buy me a selection of Bath & Body Works Hand Sanitisers. I have tried a few before but I really wanted to try the Christmas selection & he did very well. I now have a stockpile of 9 which will keep me going for quite a while. I have tried the Warm Vanilla Sugar and Island Margarita ones & loved them. I’m currently using Ginger Snap which smells good enough to eat. Let me know if you have tried any of these, or if you have a favourite that I don’t have.
What has been making you happy this week?
