Friday Favourites – 8 February

Hello, hope you are all having a good Friday! I am having the worst Friday – struck down with severe toothache so have spent the day in bed with pots of jelly and Season 1 of Girls. I guess that’s not too bad really. Here’s what else has been getting me through this week:

Cat Ring Lazy Oaf Gold Cat ringHow cute is this?! I just bought a cat face watch from ASOS, would adding this be too much? And coupled with my cat patterned iPhone case. Seems like fashion is currently embracing it’s inner Crazy Cat Lady-ness, and I’m on board with that!

This adorable ring is by Lazy Oaf, is £16.00 and is also available in black. Have a wee browse  over at

Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette Urban Decay Naked BasicsTreated myself to this last week. Look how dinky it is! I was going to try and do a full review, but I’m not a beauty blogger and there is nothing I can say about this that isn’t already out there, other than that I am really happy that I bought this. I will use all the colours and I can’t often say that about eyeshadow palettes.

I bought mine from Beauty Bay and it cost £20. If you want to see a review and swatches, there are lots available, I like this one by essiebutton.

Pancake Day PancakesSo some of you might be excited about a different day next week, but I’m more excited for Pancake Day (Tuesday 12th). I’ll be having some classic, thin crepe-style pancakes with sugar and lemon. Hopefully my toothache will have sorted itself out by then, otherwise – ouch!

Here’s a nice and basic recipe from the nice and basic BBC and good ol’ Delia.

Edinburgh International Science Festival Edinburgh International Science FestivalEdinburgh International Science Festival is celebrating it’s 25th anniversary this year and it’s programme is typically fantastic. Running from 23rd March – 7th April there is something for everyone. I’m looking forward to The Great Big Science Quiz, The Edinburgh Medal Address, featuring man of the moment Professor Peter Higgs and Director General of CERN, Professor Rolf-Dieter Heuer, Pisces and The Ugly Animal Preservation Society. Comedy and science do mix.

Visit to find out more and to book some tickets. I promise you’ll find something you’ll enjoy even if you’re ‘not into science’.

Cheers y’all.
