In which I find a patch of sun

  Shorts: Gap, Top: Primark Cardigan: Peacocks, Scarf: Borrowed from Sister in law to be (she knitted it!)       I wore this at some point on my holiday, lots of layers to add/subtract depending on the sun/wind/rain (I also was sporting a rather fetching waterproof jacket (which was a bargain 14.99 from tk maxx boys section, it even has…

Fashion Questions #3

[part 1 & part 2 …I am back from holiday but as of today am on a 9 day straight at work so not sure how much I will be posting between work & reading the hunger games, and the backlog of blog posts from my week away… so tempted to click ‘mark all as read’ but scared I might miss…

In which I ride Dragons

In January I went to Germany, and did a few little daytrips with Emily who was living there at the time, below is a video we made in Worms, where we rode dragons (I’m not lying, I promise) Oh and you get a mini Germany lesson from Emily!        

Fashion Questions #2

[Continued from my last post, as I am still on my holibobs!]   6. A pair of pants that aren’t jeans. Leggings is a close as I get to ‘pants’ (obviously if I took this literally I could show you my knicker drawer…?) apart from a couple of pairs of suit trousers that I’ve not worn for over 2 year.…

Fashion Questions #1

  I’ve seen a few blogs where people answer ‘30 questions in 30 days’, but there is no way I could post daily for 30 days, so I’ve broken the questions into chunks of five, and will post them as and when! (and now I am on holiday on a boat sans laptop, you may well get a few this…

In which I borrow a Camper Van

(for the purpose of taking pictures in front of) Jumper&Scarf – Primark, Skirt – Peacocks       The Skirt is actually a bit bluer in reality, & this is my new favourite jumper, the only downside is that you cant wear a jacket over it as the rolled up sleeves get all caught up near your armpits. Sam wanted to…

In which I video the Best Friend Tag!

  Back when I was in Germany in January staying with Miss Emily, we filmed the best friend tag for your viewing pleasure. Now I am no editing whizz, I mean obviously if I wanted to be I could be (HAR HAR!) so forgive the crappily edited together bits, and the fact that it is in two halves because youtube…

In which I get foody #3

Pie & curly fries! // fajitas // curry // gross concoction of two jacket pots 2 chicken breasts and mayo (sams not mine) sausage and chips // CHICKEN ROAST // Roast goodness! Chicken Pakora // Pie in a giant yorkie // camembert breaded and not! // poached eggs on beans on toast apple flavoured chinese something or other //  soybean…

In which I paint my nails #5

Essence blue something or other, Models Own emerald black with random gold tips (sorry about the awful faux old tips) Maybelline ‘265’ on the left, with black nail art scribbles and a matt top coat,  and Nails Inc villiers street on the right (the perfect shimmery red) The same red, but with Nails Inc Crown court, and a silver nail…

In which I am spotty!

spotty blazer H&M // Skirt Zara // Body Primark Now I’m not sure if I would actually wear this out of the house, I was having a bit of a drawer tidy and the top and skirt were next to each other in a pile, and I had just re discovered the jacket (LOVE it when that happens!) and flung…

In which I enjoy a hot drink

*Twinings are sponsoring me to write this, but as you will see I am a legit Twinings drinker anyway! Now I KNOW that I’m not the only tea lover out there, but you might find it odd that I cannot abide coffee. CANT STAND THE STUFF. But for me this is a good thing, no worrying about what to order…

In which I ‘love Padlocks’

This phenomenon really intrigues me. Declaring your love for someone by locking a padlock onto a bridge is such a bizarre concept, but it has really taken off! Frankfurt was the first place I’d been where I saw it in person, we walked up the steps to the Eiserner Steg bridge, and on a fairly grey day, I suddenly noticed…
