Friday Favourites #18

Hooray for Friday!  I'm sure that a whole extra day has been added to this week--it's felt oh-so long.  This week I've been mostly wondering why I felt dreadful, before finally realising that my ear infection was back.  I am now BFFs with antibiotics again and taking it easy for the foreseeable...  

Friday Funny

Last Thursday morning Bristol commuters spotted a Hollywood-style Bristoland sign perched on the side of the Avon Gorge opposite the Portway.  No one knows who put it up there, but it's pretty eye-catching!

Favourite Trailer

Did you know that they're making a TV series based on From Dusk Till Dawn?  Man, I love that film.  George Clooney at his finest, and Quentin Tarantino was perfect as his freakishly creepy brother.  I was a bit sceptical when I heard about a series, but the trailer looks awesome!  I have no idea if a UK channel will pick up the series, but if not, hopefully Netflix will be my friend...

Favourite Book

I've been eating primal on and off for a couple of years, more "off" of late, if I'm honest.  I've been relying so much on sweet potatoes, and starchy veg with hardly a sniff of greenery gracing my plate and plenty of primal baked goods around the house; it's no wonder that I've completely stopped losing weight.  I spotted "Cavewomen Don't Get Fat" in the New Releases section on Amazon and picked it up on a whim.  Despite the title's obvious riff on French Women Don't Get Fat, it's a pretty solid piece of science and a decent introduction to paleo eating.  I'm working through Esther's two-week paleo detox plan which has zero sweet potatoes or treats, exactly what I need to get me back on track!

Favourite Hair

I've been admiring this gorgeous floral up-do by Oh Joy! for the last couple of days.  It's billed as being easy, but I'm pretty sure that Joy's fingers are more nimble than mine.  I loved her confession that she rarely uses a hairdryer as she doesn't really know what to do with it...I thought I was the only one!!  Maybe I don't have to hand back my girl card after all.

    1. We drove past the Bristoland sign the other day--I'll be surprised if it's still there after all the crazy wind we've been having! I think the crocodile in the Avon is our latest quirky news story in these parts :)
