2 Weeks Notice.

I've been very poorly lately, then both me and Michael ended up with a nasty bug. Not. Fun. But, all this was made bearable by burying myself in the wonderful world of blogging. And, maybe got a little too excited about wedding planning, so much so that I think Michael may be getting a little fed up of me completely forgetting things and repeating myself over and over again. But, it's okay, I'm allowed.
  • I could waste so much time on Hello Giggles (come on, Zooey Deschanel is one of the founders!) but I reign myself in and stick to the articles I can't resist clicking on. My favourite one recently has to be the post on ridiculously happy animals. You feel crap? You have to read this. Oh, and that pic, ephelants are my favourites!
  • I've been searching for a decent vegan cheese for the last year and a half, it hasn't been going well. Until now. I don't like to really eat substitutes for normal vegan food but cheese on toast is one thing I really miss. So when we were in Brighton for my birthday and I found myself eating a completely vegan pizza in a little restaurant and actually enjoying the cheese (I normally just have tomato and veg on my pizza) I knew I had to buy some. You can find it here.
  • If you've been reading my 2 Weeks Notice posts you'll know about my love for all the lovely other M.E. bloggers. And this week I'm mentioning Hayley-Eszti again. Her post, Hippie on a high hill, is just beautiful and will serve as a great escape from our boring poorly lives.
  • Another chronic illness blogger now; Spoonie Sophia. If you have to have a specialised diet to help manage your illness then this is the one to go too. Her instagram is also high on my recommended to follow list. But, this week, I'm sharing Sophia's Vegan & Gluten-free Gingernut Biscuits! Hint hint Michael...
  • I've been reading The Beauty Department for a good couple of years now and they're my go to for beauty and hair tutorials. I also love their little guides, so damn useful. The lower lash blast post is especially eye opening... Boom.
  • I'm sure we all love how excited little ones get around any celebration, it makes us grown ups have a renewed love for those special times of year. Mandi from A Beautiful Mess (blogging giants) has just celebrated her daughters second birthday and shared an amazing post on how she decorated to excite her little 'un. You have to click on this post just to see the excitement in her sweet little face!

Thankful Thursday | 22

It's October. Although, the air still hasn't got enough chill to make Michael not overheat when snuggling under a blanket. So, Happy Autumn and Happy October Guys!

This week I am thankful for:
22 - knowing when I'm starting my gluten free diet again. This means I can eat one last of all my favourite gluten based treats and Michael gets to feed me. This is naughty I know, but simple pleasures eh?
