In which I buy necklaces & make some festive decorations

                                         Orelia – (topshop Oxford Circus ) £10 I saw this and had to have it. I Originally went in looking for a new GoGo Phillip necklace, but nothing on their stands jumped out at me, the current collection was mostly gold, and I much prefer silver. That said, this is a tiny gold chain, with three little hearts on…

In which I bake a Pie

  My favourite meal to cook is Pie! Any kind of pie (apart from steak and kidney) will do, but my ‘come dine with me’ dish would be chicken & leek. The recipe is my own, and I probably never make it the same twice in a row, but here is how to do it! You need: 3 Chicken breasts,…

In which I meet some bloggers

Last Saturday I travelled on the train to Southampton to meet some lovely lady bloggers. Southampton was absolutely packed, but it was a really nice festive atmosphere (I reckon the German Christmas market helped!) After some frantic tweeting we met up outside the shopping centre, and then headed away from the the mass of people to Hepwrights, a lovely vintage…

In which I wear two dresses (OOTD)

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 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 &…
