Monday : I did lots of blog planning :)

Tuesday : I made some flashcards and they really helped me learn a lot of french vocabulary

Wednesday : Me and my girlfriend went out for hot chocolate in Costa on our lunch break !



Thursday: The majority of today was spent helping my girlfriend with her art project ... I say helping, I mean I'm no artist but she let me paint the sides of the canvas when she was running out of time to finish , so I'm gonna say I helped ;) I couldn't be prouder of how talented she is <3




Friday: Some of our classes got cancelled so we went home early, got a chippy and watched Into The Woods because I hadn't seen it and oh my gosh it was so good !

Saturday : Georgie and me made a cake in the shape of my cat Charlie for my mums boyfriend birthday ( He really loves Charlie )



Sunday : I've gone out without make up on for the first time in at least a year, maybe two !

In the comments let me know 3 good things that have happened to you this week so we can keep this communal positivity diary going !

  3. That hot chocolate looks so good and that cake is begging to be in my mouth! Your girlfriend is so talented and so sweet, I keep remembering your amazing date together :D I always feel great after I have done heaps of blog planning! I'm so proud of you for going out without make-up on, I'm sure nobody noticed but it's something personal that you need to overcome, well done!
    This week was really great, I went back to school, I travelled to the other main island of New Zealand (the one I have never been in), bought some high waisted shorts that I have been searching for for a year (we don't have the best shops where I live, it's a small town and finally bought three more designed notebooks (with happy quotes on the front), I have a big notebook obsession! I know you said three things but my week has just been too awesome to limit myself!
    I hope you have a day filled with magic and joy,
    <3 Catherine

  8. When I saw Cat Cake I was like where are you going with this one Marianne?!?! XD hahahaha :O I love it, you are so creative and talented! You would be like a little kids dream for birthday cakes!!! Naww hearing about you and your girlfriend gives me the warm fuzzies, she has talent all right and she is such a lucky lady to have you!!! Damn, nicknaming you two the creative couple! ;) Makeup free days are so empowering and kind of scary at first but a smile is always the best kind of makeup! ;)

    In the supermarket there was a little girl and Mum and the little girl was helping to put the groceries on the checkout belt but she was so tiny, it was just the cutest thing, I got so much joy from it!

    Playing poker with the flatmates and you'll get a lot of joy from this too... one of my flatmates cats decided to sit right in the middle of where we were playing so we started laying the cards on him, the 5th card was obviously too much and he jumped up and the cards flew everywhere lol made for a great laugh and photo though!

    Simple Plan released a new song and it is just making my life!

  9. That hot chocolate looks delish! And the cat cake is super adorable as well- looks like a lot of work but definitely worth it!
    This weekend it was my boyfriends birthday so we had a nice dinner with his family, I also picked up my new glasses that I have to wear while using the computer (but I like them so it's ok!) and I bought some nice new bed sheets! Nothing better than cozy things hehe :)

  10. I love this positivity idea! It's definitely infectious :) I also love that kitty cake! So cute.

    Three things... Might be hard, this past week was a bit of a blur! I finished my book (it had a great ending, it was a good read!) and got to start a new one (always exciting!). I spent a fair amount of time with my family. And my electricity, once it was restored last Sunday, has remained working all week, haha! Losing power really makes you appreciate power ;)

  12. A canvas on top of a canvas on top of a canvas :D! Literally genius haha plus the flower turned out so pretty!! <3 :D and nice skills painting the side haha. You should try out this app called Duolingo (it's free ;) and it teaches you all sorts of languages. I tried it out once because I wanted to learn french and I actually learned a lot but then I got lazy with it haha but it's really good especially if you're serious about learning French :D I have yet to watch into the woods so I'll be adding that onto my must watch list. THE CAT CAKE!!! :D OMG it's perfect haha I bet your mom's boyfriend must have loved it!! Let's see, I got out a bit early from class last week, I had time to film a video and upload it, and I made time to write out a post :D It literally just came to me in the middle of the night haha. I really do hope next week picks up for you <3 xx

    1. haha she had to make three canvases each three times the size of eachother and I thought it was pretty awesome when she decided to present them that way ! She's definitely good but I don't know if she can compete with my painting of the sides hehe ;) Ooo that sounds really interesting, I'll look it up because I do alevel french and really want to improve :) He found the cake really funny hehe :) It's always a nice surprise when you get out of class early and woo I love watching yours and rainbows youtube videos while I'm doing my make up in the mornings <3

  17. What an excellent idea for an extended blog post! Your week sounds pretty darn decent; your girlfriend is clearly super talented, and my gosh did that hot chocolate look good! Into the Woods was such a good film; I think I cried in it - I'm not going to lie :P

    This week I've started my blog (hurrah) which has been a large achievement for me! I can't wait to firmly create a schedule, and establish my position in this superb community! I also made pancakes this morning (super productive for me, a usual "I'll just have some cereal" kind-of-guy) and made a kick-start on my art project. Overall, a pretty decent week :)
