I thought I'd make the most of the last few days of Summer with this simple berry smoothie. Not only is it a healthier alternative to sugar-laden soft drinks and syrup-based fruit juices, but it's also a great way to use up bananas that are heading towards the 'over-ripe' stage. (Mushy, over-ripe bananas are the worst!)


My week overall was quite busy (well, busier than usual), with a couple of days of work, a few dance classes, and some long-overdue catch-ups with friends. The highlight of my week was probably catching up with friends, and listening to Disney songs as I cleaned my room (also long-overdue, and a hoarder's worst nightmare!) As most of my week consisted of casual gatherings, I found myself reaching for Mecca Cosmetica's In A Good Light (light coverage with added SPF 30) over MAC's Face and Body (usually reserved for work and 'going out').

'MY FAVO(U)RITE THINGS' // a great song. Though, come to think of it, practically anything featuring Julie Andrews could be considered 'great'. That lady is freakin' incredible. But I digress.

Given my established aversion to Awkward Introductions, rather than do a get-to-know-me 20 Questions, or a spiel in which I assault your ears with my fascinating life story, I thought I'd do a little summary instead. A (literal) snapshot, if you will.

"These are a few of my favourite things..."

Hiya! *insert shy wave*
As I don't particularly enjoy Awkward Introductions (e.g. clammy handshakes, polite expressions of interest, intently studying the ground etc. - yep, you know the kind) I'm going to keep this succinct.

I am Chloe, pleasure to 'meet' you. (Phew, at least virtual handshakes don't involve sweaty hands...) 

I suppose now is the time when I attempt to define what this online journal is actually about, or give you some kind of indication as to what you should expect in the coming posts. But in truth, aside from the generic topics* listed in the 'About' section, I'm not so sure myself. You might find out if you stick around! ;) I'll make it worth your while.

Thanks for visiting!

Yours in bright lipstick and shiny objects,
Chloe x

*I mean, really generic...
