In which show you my past and present hair

I’ve got the finest hair ever (apart from a new born baby/really old lady I guess..) Its in awful condition & I have the odd stray grey hair (I KNOW, I’m too young!) Currently the ends are blondey and the top is my natural dark brown (I could say chestnut or auburn, bit I would be lying. It is brown) Because the bottom half has been bleached and then toned a few times its obviously…

In which I go to the Ballet

On the 22nd December I went to see Peter Schaufusses Nutcracker, which was a (very) contemporary take on the traditional ballet. I Danced from 3 until 21, and only really gave up because I didn’t want to do it professionally and don’t like small children enough to teach them, (I did help out at my school though sometimes) and living in Brighton meant spending money on rent and not competition fees, costumes and ridiculous amounts…

In which I get festive!

A Christmas Day stroll… Brighton pavilion & pier. A little picture post of my Christmas. Midnight Mass – at the tallest parish church in England (built to the dimensions of the Ark, supposedly) There was huge fight at the end of the service, swearing and punches being thrown, this really common looking and very drunk clan of people were so out of order its untrue! A plate of pottery christmas shapes in a shop window…

In which I Suffer (and wear shorts)

Shorts – Primark Top – Topshop Cardigan – Peacocks Wooly headband – Primark Normally I change the buttons on anything from primark, but these are little bows, which I approve of, they did however come with braces, which I didn’t approve of, they were attached at the front, and buttoned at the back, they got snipped off sharpish! (excuse slippers!)   Wore this earlier in the week for a Christmas Drink with my old flatmate.…

In which I show you recent clothes purchases

Just a couple of things I’ve bought over the last few weeks, I *think* I’ve decided to go on a no clothes/makeup/books spending ban from Jan 1st for three months. I spend the most money on these things, and I have SO MANY clothes and a shit tonne of make  up so I can clearly manage until then, and whatever I have left at the end of each month goes into the wedding fund (and…

In which I make Eggnog

I’d never tried eggnog before I made it, partly because I am normally a bah humbug, and partly because I am lactose intolerant. However, I decided I wanted to try it, couldn’t find it anywhere ready made (because we’re not in America, obviously) so decided to make a little batch to see if I liked it. I did, although my stomach hated me for it. You Will Need: 2 Pints of milk, 6 eggs, 50g…

In which I make Christmas Cookies

I used to be a BIG biscuit eater (as in i was bigger and I ate a lot of biscuits) In the last year or so I’ve managed to cut down the old biscuit intake, which was hard at first but it gets easier I tell you! (jaffa cakes and malted chocolate biscuits were my favs!)      Seeing as its almost Christmas and all that jazz, I thought I’d make my own biscuits, these are fairly…
