Update || Life in pictures #3

Bottom row - Cuteness overload, behind the scenes of a blogger, dinner with my oldest friend. 

It's been a good few weeks since my last update post so I'll try keep this brief as there's a fair bit to get through. 
I'll start off with my trip to Ikea, as delivery was more than the actual coffee table I wanted, I decided to take matters into my own hands and go get it myself (with the help of my boyfriend). This sunset was on the tram ride home and I left it completely unedited, sometimes the world is beautiful all on its own. 
Next is this photo I found of my old family home when we first moved in, 20 years ago. It's so strange how different it looks, mainly because the door's been red for as long as I can remember! 
Whilst I was visiting my sister, I painted my nails and of course, took a notd photo for Instagram. This was one of the many outtakes as Percy seemed very interested in what was in my hand so it was rather hard to get a photo! 
As I was back in my home town, I decided to catch up with my oldest friend Laura and had a lovely meal at Rosie's Diner. I've never been before but I was seriously impressed by the decor. There was an actual life size American school bus inside, so cool. 


Top row - A gift from my sister, all dolled up at the Hilton, this charming man.
Bottom row - Cocktails at Cloud 23, overlooking Manchester, a treat from my beau. 

My sister and I made a quick trip into Leeds whilst I was there and she bought me this Urban Decay Setting Spray. She took pity on me as I'm currently on a spending ban, she's always spoiling me for one reason or another though. 
When I arrived back to Manchester, my wonderful man surprised me by taking me to the Hilton for the night. We don't normally have time together due to our conflicting work schedules, so he made the most of it and spoilt me rotten. He went all out and got us an executive room, took me out for a Mexican meal (my favourite) and we had cocktails at Cloud 23 which has the most amazing view of Manchester. As if that wasn't enough, he also treated me to a little something from Selfridges the next day when we went to the Trafford Centre. There will be a full blog post on my visit to the Hilton to follow soon so keep your eyes peeled! 


Top row - My blog on an iMac, date night selfie, standard pug selfie.
Bottom row - Having a rest, Percy's pulled, over excitement on Instagram. 

Whilst at the Trafford Centre, we had a look in the Apple store. I wish I could look at my blog on a mac everyday! 
One night last week, my two favourite boys and I went for an evening stroll and a drink at a local bar. I was quite impressed with myself that I went out to a bar with only concealer, mascara and lip gloss on and a quick filling in of my brows! Normally if I'm going out in the evening I wouldn't dream of anything less than a full face of make up so I'm proud of myself for this small accomplishment. 
This last one is a tad silly but I wanted to include it anyway. As Benefit is my favourite cosmetics company, I was in shock when they liked little old me's picture of their products. Next thing you know they'll be sending me press samples (fingers crossed). 


Top left to bottom right - Selfie with the bestie, pug, pug and more pug. 

On Wednesday, my best friend and I finally hung out together after what felt like forever, even though it had only been less than two weeks. We saw the film What If which was a bit meh but we also had Nando's which is always a winner in my book. 
These last three photos are all because I'm back in Leeds again as I'm going to Leeds festival tomorrow. So of course, I'm spending some quality time with my little prince as well. This last photo cracks me up, we decided to put Percy in my tote bag as we don't have a proper dog bag for him and his face turned into this big squishy mess. Needless to say, we took him straight back out again after we'd got a quick picture! 

That pretty much brings us up to date with my life, the interesting parts at least! If you'd like to see what I'm up to in real time, be sure to check out my Instagram @cleeeming for regular updates! Ciao for now.
