Go, Shorty.

The sun has put me in a fabulous mood as always so I thought I would do a post on the things I'm loving this week.

1. Shortbread - I made a batch of this yesterday, accidentally used self-raising flour, so it kinda ended up as shortbread/cake. Anyway it was so delicious I didn't even have chance to take a photo before me and the hubby had gobbled it up!

2. Buyapowa - How has it taken me so long to discover this website? For those who don't know how it works, they stick a product up with a time limit for it to be sold within. The more buyers, the cheaper the item, simple as that. I grabbed the OPI Stems Collection, which should be arriving soon, for only £6.75. It's really good for make-up like Nars, MAC and Urban Decay.

3. Short suits - I don't know why, but I'm loving the short suits. I don't think they are an 'everyday' item, but they would look amazing for a Summer Wedding reception or bbq. Mollie King is literally the Queen of pulling off the short suit, I am so envious of this gorgeous pastel coloured number.

4. The Voice - So if you haven't heard of this show, where have you been hiding? This has been all over Twitter/Facebook and everyone has been excited to see how it competes with Xfactor. First impressions? Amazing! I love the whole swivel chair thing, and I didn't realised how much I like Will.I.Am, he's too funny. It's much more professional than the Xfactor but more friendly at the same time, cos everyone can sing! Plus there is no involvement from Simon Cowell. The BBC have me hooked.

5. Calamari - I know, this is a weird one. Being a fake Vegetarian (I eat fish, but no meat),  I tried Calamari for the first time at the weekend and it was delicious. It didn't have a really fishy taste, and was cooked to perfection so wasn't rubbery as I've heard it can be. I had it with garlic dip, it was kind of a posh fish finger, but still i'm converted. Next up to try is Crab and Mussels, I must get to Southport and eat them by the sea!

And one thing I'm hating..

Men walking round with their tops off - just cos the sun has come out, does not make it acceptable to walk around half naked. It isn't 50 degrees, it's barely out of the teens. Put some clothes on!

What are you loving or hating this week?
