Week in Photos - 24th September 2017

The last couple of weeks have been quite busy one way or another, but I haven’t taken a huge amount of photos, which is why I’ve merged the last two weeks together in this post. I’ve had some nice family time but have also started back at university for my third year. It’s already getting scary and we had our first lecture about our dissertations this week – I’m not ready to be doing that! Next week I’m off to do some more work experience with Happiful magazine, which I’m looking forward to but am also feeling a bit nervous because I know how much it wipes me out.

This was the amazing goody bag I was lucky enough to receive at the blogger breakfast at The Lexicon when I went a couple of Saturdays ago. So many lovely brands from the shopping centre gave goodies for us to enjoy. I’m excited to try everything in there!

Last week I went to Whipsnade Zoo with my Mum and Dad. I can’t remember the last time I went, but I’m pretty sure I was a lot younger! Our first stop was at The Lookout Lodge for a cup of tea to warm us up – there was such an amazing view. It was rather windy and cold, but otherwise beautiful.

I think seeing the giraffes was one of the best parts of my day at Whipsnade, especially as there were a couple of babies there. I even got to stroke one of the adults, who then went on to lick me twice! If you didn’t already know, giraffes have extremely long tongues!

To be this close to these beautiful lions felt truly amazing. My absolute dream would be to go somewhere and see animals like this in their natural habitat, but this was definitely a start. We also got to watch them being fed, and one of the lions was playing and growling just like our pets do when we play with them.

Something went a bit funny with my Mind membership for some reason, so I stopped getting magazines for a while. But the lovely team sorted it all out very quickly and sent me their last three magazines to relax with. If you’re not already a member I would really recommend joining. These magazines help me feel less alone in my mental health struggles and the services Mind provides are just incredible.

It’s candle season! I spent Saturday working at my computer with candles like this Salted Caramel Yankee Candle burning around me. My bedroom smelt so much like autumn!

I treated myself to a few new lipsticks for autumn as Superdrug had a 3 for 2 deal on make-up. So I picked up a couple from Max Factor and one from Bourjois. I’m excited to wear them all.

How beautiful are these autumnal flowers I picked up in my local Waitrose - you can’t beat orange and red roses and I’m excited to see what colour the lilies will be (I’m thinking orange!)

You can check out my YouTube channel here, where I have recently uploaded a few new videos, including an Autumn Primark Haul (and hope to continue doing!)

I’m also trying to post on Snapchat a bit more, so if you fancy following me, my username is Jennycole44.

If you don’t already, please give me a follow on Bloglovin here - I can’t believe I’ve managed to hit 800 followers now! Thank you all so much. I’m planning a giveaway very soon!

What have you been up to this week? I always enjoy hearing about your news and adventures!
