All the days...

My poor blog has been gathering dust this week... Some of you who have been reading my blog for a while now will know that I live pretty much in the middle of nowhere in the Irish countryside.
I live where we expect our electricity to go off at least twice a year and where finding a cow in your garden isn't really that big a deal. So when a tractor crashed into a telegraph pole on my road and cut through the cable cutting off our phone and internet it wasn't surprising. The thing is cos we live in an area where the houses are far and few between BT doesnt think of us as 'high priority'. We have had no internet or phone since Tuesday!!
Im getting serious withdrawl symptoms! This post and Wednesdays giveaway post have been done by mooching at Daves!

Anyways enough ranting! I took part in the instagram photo a day challenge which was really good fun and I thought id share my pics with you guys.

favourite-milkshake, your sky-out my bedroom window, daily routine-always involves driving.
childhood-a book my granny gave me, where you sleep-under my ikea flower light, close up-of my skin care regime.
in your handbag, what you're reading-alice in wonderland, water-bubble bath.
happiness-a box of love notes, letters & cards from Dave, morning-reading the paper about me! something you bought-gold spiked bling!
something sweet-little wiggley with a bow on her head, someone you love-my bro Adam, reflection-in the mirror.
shoes-all my favs,something old-modern miss magazines 1962 & my vintage Gucci watch, guilty pleasure-dvd box sets!
something you made-dresses for uni digitally printed with my own prints, colour-my teal satchel, light-the fire.
in my fridge-lots of fruit and drinks, nature-tulips one of my favourite flowers, me-me :)

Its part of my new years resolution to take more photos so this challenge was great at making me take more! Hope you all are having a lovely weekend Im off now to make pancakes and drink tea. Outfit post coming tomorrow I promise even if I have steal wi-fi signal from somewhere!
