    THANKFUL FRIDAYS #3

    Cor, these weeks go fast when you write a weekly series don't they! This week has been all about Christmas vibes, good food and even better company. Read on to find my highlights....

    1. OLYMPUS PEN OF DREAMS
    Oh Olympus Pen, you sweet beautiful, camera you. I got my insurance pay-out last week, conveniently at the same time that John Lewis put the PEN in their Black Friday sale. It was fate. I've been playing around with it this week and it's safe to say I'm in love.
    2. BRUCE ALMIGHTY
    This week i've been rocking out to Bruce Springstein's 'Dancing in the Dark'. As if this isn't the best desk-side motivation. 5 points if you spot the fresh-faced actress around the 2.30 mark... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=129kuDCQtHs

    3. GIVE ME ALL THE CHOCOLATE
    It's December. It's Christmas and it's officially acceptable to eat chocolate for breakfast for the next 30 days. It's taken all my strength not to eat my whole advent calendar in one sitting. I give myself till the 7th...

    4. THE MANCHESTER COOK BOOK
    I got sent an awesome recipe book this week containing dishes from some of the hottest restaurants in Manchester. I love it so much, I'm going to be giving away a copy on the blog next week so keep your eyes peeled!

    5. THE DINER
    Hump day treats this week came courtesy of the Diner. Chilli Cheese Fries + Buffalo Wings = biggest 4pm crash of my life..but what a beautiful food coma it was! I hand on heart vouch that the diner has the best chilli cheese fries in London, I can't get enough! The hot buffalo wings with blue cheese dip are also one of my favourite naughty treats.

    6. #DearLateNightLondon
    You might have spotted some Christmas wishes flying around Twitter this week and that's because Late Night London are giving away gifts every day in the run up to Christmas! To be in with a chance of winning, follow @LateNightLondon & tweet a picture of your wish using the hashtag #DearLateNightLondon. I've not so subtly hinted that I would like a pair of Wireless Beats headphones...you  know, just in case Santa is reading.

    7. ROME-ING AROUND
    Tom totally nailed fancy dress last weekend and put me to shame by going out in this skimpy number in the miserable 3 degree weather.
    8. THERE'S ONLY JUAN PABLO
    Narcos is one of the best things I've watched on TV in bloody ages! If you have Netflix and you haven't started watching it yet. What the hell are you doing?? It's gritty, a little gory and it's literally mind-blowing what Pablo Escobar got away with. He was making $60million dollars a day from trafficking cocaine. A DAY. Yes. Every day 60 million US dollars was rolling into his pockets. Jesus wept.

    9. #FDBLOGGERS SECRET SANTA
    How flippin' awesome is Loriley? Between her full-time job, her blog and organising the #fdbloggers community, she's found time to organise a secret santa for us too! I found out who i'm buying for earlier this week and I'm excited to get buying! Now if they would just write a Gift Guide.....

    10. CHRISTMAS CHEER IS WELCOME HERE.
    It's happening guys. Give me all the gingerbread latted, cinnamon scented, Bing Crosby'd tinsel you can find because I'm feeling Christmas A.F. right now and there's officially nothing any scrooge can say or do about it.

    How has you week been? I'd love to hear your highlights...
