This Week I #9

February 17, 2014

Last week was a bit of a random week, as always not a lot happened as you guys know i'm really trying to focus on my dissertation at the moment, but there was a few surprises and exciting things going on through the course of the week.
Began an unintetional spending ban - As this months payday wasn't the best I told myself that I couldn't really buy many things this month but the past week or so i've actually managed to stick to this. Other than buying stationary and valentines presents I haven't actually purchased anything for myself and I don't plan to until next payday. Go me!
Reached 1,000 BlogLovin' Followers - On Tuesday I hit 1,000 followers and it has honestly made my week! I never thought just over a year into blogging i'd have so many followers and to say thank you I will be running a giveaway, when I can afford to purchase the prizes of course but in the mean time.. THANK YOU!
Got inspired and motivated - I found these really cute quote cards floating around my desk area and they really got me thinking. First of all I love quotes as they really motivate me and they've given me some more idea's for my desk area, my ever changing desk area!
Had a lovely Valentines Day - Sorry for being that person, but this year was my first Valentines with a boyfriend and we had a really nice, chilled out evening and he got me some beautiful roses that I just had to share with you guys!

What did you get up to last week?
