In which I paint my nails again

  Here are my nails over the last few weeks (I last showed my nails here) Barry M Dusky Mauve 313 (the right image is the best representative of colour) OPI – A Grape fit, with accesorize crystal shimmer (a nice multi tone glitter in a creamy white base) Random sparklies as I was getting in-fills the next day so…

In which I wear two dresses (OOTD)

  This is an outfit from one of my days off LAST week. Forgot I’d taken them to be honest and then was clearing off my memory card and boom! There they were! This is a Miss Selfridge dress over an H&M basics burgundy dress.                           The dress has embroidery’/lace detailing over cream panels, with a circular skirt, so its…

In which I get foody

Here is a completely pointless post about food. I love food. I’ve worked as a chef and a Kitchen manager before, but when I worked in kitchens I hated cooking outside work. Now it’s something I like to do, as long as there is someone else to eat the food with me. HATE cooking for one, but due to odd…

In which I love and loathe November

  So November is over… pretty much anyway! Last months loving//loathing can be found here, and for your reading pleasure here is what pissed me off or made me gloriously happy this month…         Dinner with friends // Reading… // Watching Junior Apprentice // Starting to shop for Christmas // Planning Christmas day dinner! // Dragging my…

In which I recap the week in pictures 2, and a ramble

My week so far has been a good one, two cinema trips (and another later, mini reviews coming soon) a couple of days off in the week & some good food and shopping! Quite excitingly I ordered half the books on my Goodreads to-read list (please add me if you have Goodreads, and if you don’t have it, get it!)…

In which I don’t go to dinner (OOTD)

That’s a Lie! This is completely what I wore to go to dinner at a friends house, with a whole load of other friends… ten people round a table for a Roast, it felt like Christmas come early! Three chickens & 2 huge pork joints (Katy would be disgusted at all the roastyness!) So more gormless faces for you, as…

In which I go to dinner AGAIN! (OOTD)

This is what I wore to dinner on Friday with my friend Aaron (who runs Krispy Kreme… endless donuts right there!) We went to Pizza Express (with a voucher) and got given free drinks (his friend works there) AND we ate early so i was home and in my PJ’s lying in the me shaped indent in the sofa by…

In which I fail at healthy lunches

  Lose weight before Christmas… its probably on a few peoples agendas? Sarah is going to set a challenge a week, and this weeks was eat a healthy lunch… I failed. I never take a lunch break at work, I know I should as it would be beneficial to my belly and my stress levels. But I never learn &…

In which I review ELF bits and bobs

I’ve ordered from elf a couple of times before, and am really impressed with their products, especially for the low prices! The packaging of the actual products can sometimes be a little cheap, but then what do you expect, for such a little price. Each item comes in its own display packaging too, which you wouldn’t expect when buying products…

In which I stroll (OOTD)

                                                                            Bow print dress: Debenhams Chunky Cardi: Primark (last year!) beigeypink, with sparkly thread, it came with HIDEOUS diamante buttons, which were changed for ones with anchors on…. Anchor print scarf: Primark, last year again. Bag: New Look Belt& Boots: Primark. Oh dear. I imagine the tights are primarni too. Outfit fail eh?! After looking at these…

In which recap the week in pictures

                   Lovely flowers from a guest at work // Cupcake with the most amazing topping ever (modest, right?!) and a cup of tea (tiny bit of milk, no sugar and teabag in, in case you were interested) // ‘Bagdad country club’ This is written under the arches on the raised walkway on the way to Brighton Marina. Back in the…

In which I go to dinner 2 (OOTD)

All week for dinner I had been eating toast, crumpets or potato cakes. The fridge is bare… call me old mother Hubbard but when I’m ill the last thing I want to do is trek round the supermarket. I could’ve ordered asda home delivery, but no! 2 asos orders and an elf order instead. (In my defence, some of that…
