In which I share my engagement photos

All the pictures in this post are taken by the beautiful and beautifully talented Laura McCluskey. I couldn’t even begin to choose my favourite pictures, as they are all special in their own way, but I have chosen a little selection to show here… On the first Saturday of the year we spent the whole day strolling round Brighton. We…

In which I visit Germany – Frankfurt

  Sam & I spent three days and nights in Frankfurt, before I headed south to stay with my friend Emily… I’d done a bit of research before we went, but we went with an open mind as to what we should do! (Sam would disagree with me I think!) On day one we headed to the Explora museum, via…

In which I love & loathe January & a week in pictures

[edit – Saturday 13.00. I will be quiet on the blogging front for a few days, I heard today that a close friend committed suicide yesterday in a very public way. It was not expected and nobody had any inkling that he had depressive thoughts, let alone the feelings that he was obviously struggling with, and some friends are not aware but…

In which I celebrate my birthday by showing you stupid faces

As I am currently pottering around Frankfurt with no desire nor ability to post, this is a scheduled post showing you all my squiffy faces and spazzy stances from various old outfit posts, the ones that didn’t make the cut. If you can’t look a fool on your birthday, when can you?   (the one on the right is my…

In which I video the contents of my bag

This is my favourite kind of video to watch, so an easy choice for a first video! I was inspired by Sophie (who incidentally sent me a completely unexpected birthday present in the post, that I am saving until I am back from my hols!) and I filmed this late on Friday night. I hate the sound of my voice,…

In which I discuss hair, again!

As promised I said I would update you on my hairs progress with using the new Pantene range (see this post). I’ve been washing and conditioning every 2 days, and deep conditioning every 4. Much to my surprise, my hair genuinely does seem healthier, the main reason I say this is because less of it seems to be snapping off…
