Question of the Week.

How many times a day do you look in the mirror?
As little as possible! I have problems with my skin so when I wake up I check how it is that day, then wash my face etc (I don't have a mirror in my bathroom) and check again. As for after that I'll only use a mirror if I'm going somewhere that requires putting make up on. Otherwise I'll avoid them like the plague haha!

How has your week been??!! As you can tell, mines been a little crazy...haha Apologies for the bird overload in this post too. :P
Make sure to leave me the link of your favourite post you've read from someone else's blog this week!! <3


  1. Love discovering new blogs through your weekend post :)

  2. Oh I love a good owl picture. Congratulations on landing your job. When do you start? Or have you already? If so how has it been? Seen you've watched Into The Woods. I liked Meryl Streep a lot in it but found it weird that the film after 90 minutes takes a bit of a 360 degree turn. My week has been alright. I met friends in Berlin on Monday and spent the rest of the week job hunting. Boring as hell. I've also rediscovered the Lord of The Rings (I have the extended versions and it was time to see them). Hope you and Jake are well xxx

    1. Yey for owls. Thank you! Hopefully next Tuesday if all goes to plan.
      I HATED Into the Woods!! haha It's literally one of the only Disney films that was just so annoying and repetitive.

      Job hunting isn't always fun but it won't be forever, I hope you get lucky as soon as possible. Lord of the Rings is awesome though. I think that makes the week fab in itself :P


  3. I got out of the blogging loop a little, but you got the job?! Congratulations! I didn't even know you had applied, do you mind me asking for what? Disney dvds are great, what ones did you get? I've not been able to use the internet much in the house because there's a very little limit we can use, so I spend that time looking for jobs, but knowing it was Sunday and these posts of yours are up, I decided to stray away from the job search and get my fix! You have not let me down. :)

    1. Thank you! It's just a little cleaning job, but it's exactly what I've been looking for for a few months now :)
      I have to say I am completely honoured that you would use your internet to visit my little blog - thank you so much!

      Hope you're well!!


  4. Thank you very much for the shout out Danielle, and congratulations on the job too - that's great! Those photos are absolutely stunning of the Gannet at the end there too, and that photo of Claire is lovely too - looks like you had a lovely day. - Tasha

    1. You are very welcome and thank you!
      The Gannets were a lucky capture one day last summer while my Dad and Jake were fishing - they were catching all the fish! haha

      We did thanks, lots of posts to come in the following months.


  5. Yay for the new job! That's excellent news! :-) xx

  6. Congratulations on getting the job, Danielle, that's brilliant news! I really hope you enjoy it. When do you start?

    I also love that Jake treats you to Disney DVDs despite not liking Disney himself - that's so sweet and thoughtful!


    p.s. Thank you for including my posts, you lovely thing! You're honestly one of the most supportive and passionate bloggers I know.

    1. Thank you!! Tuesday I think :) It's the first job that I've not been nervous to start. Exactly what I wanted to be doing.
      He's a little star isn't he? Apart from when he's calling me a booty helmet or poo pants hahah.

      You are more than welcome, one of my favourite blogs has to feature occasionally :P You are far too sweet, thats so kind of you.


  7. I still haven't seen Pudsey the movie! Lovely photos as always, couldn't take my eyes off the owl's eyes :) Sounding like it was a good week, yay for those xox

    1. It's on Netflix! Thank you :) Yes, owls have that effect don't you think - beautiful creatures!
      Always a good week when you look for the good ;)
