Lifestyle | Enjoying A Bit Of Me Time.

I love my life!.. Living with my boyfriend, my dog, going to a job I enjoy, with colleagues I actually want to spend time with & being surrounded by my amazing family. I'm actually living the dream! All that being said, there is nothing I love more than my own company.

And I don't mean that in a big headed way. What I mean, is that I'm quite happy spending time on my own, doing my own thing & enjoying a bit of me time. When Dan told me he was going on holiday, my first thought was jealousy (damn you!) mixed with a slight longing however this feeling was ridiculously quickly overturned to one of excitement... Excitement to have the house to myself & excitement to indulge in a bit of me time. Here's a few things I've been getting up to over the weekend.

1. Watching copious amounts of girlie garbage on the TV. RuPauls Drag race isn't quite to Dans' taste unfortunately.
2. Having a lush infused bubble bath each day... Maybe even twice a day. Ooops!
3. Painting my nails... He can't deal with the smell that comes with painting your talons.
4. Eating all the chocolate in the house... And getting away with it.
5. Going to bed at 10pm. I'm such a Grandma!
6. Cleaning the whole god damn house. Believe me, I was in my element & my house now looks ahhmaazing!!
7. Washing half the amount of pots... Because we haven't got all day to be faffing around with the dishes!
8. Doing my exercises without the fear of him walking into the room & seeing me look like a great big sweaty mess.
9. Participating in all of the twitter chats without having daggers thrown my way.
10. Browsing asos, missguided, topshop, new look, boohoo, chichi, you catch my drift, without being caught.
11. Experimenting with makeup... I have a very funny makeup based post coming up soon, so watch this space!
12. Sleeping in till as long as possible... Or until I can hear the baby puppy grumbling downstairs... She's so bloody cute, but so flaming needy!
13. Washing the bed linen & sofa covers to my hearts content. Sad, I know, but there's no better feeling than getting into fresh sheets.
14. Hanging out in my pj's all day.

I really hope you enjoyed this post on how I've enjoyed my weekend to myself. How have you spent the weekend? How do you deal with alone time?

Thank you so much for reading. Lots of love | Claire.x

  1. Lovely post, made me laugh! I love a good spring clean! It never seems to stay clean and tidy for long with them around, does it? xxx

    1. Oh definitely not :-) Men are like little whirl winds that come home from work & turn the house upside down in a matter of minutes. God help us if we ever have kids. I'll be pulling my hair out. Ha. X
