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 is evil, turn up your volume (sorry!) & enjoy!   Please please let me know if you managed to watch it all… we do waffle on somewhat! Have you done…

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 art pen with carefully applied aztec style decorations! (Sam did my right hand for me, well done that boy!) Excuse the hideously outgrown acrylics, Essence ‘its a snow womans world’…

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 it all on. Sam said I looked hot, I am think I look like an early eighties business woman! what do you think? Shoes – Newlook. I need to get…

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 at starbucks, no skinny frappa mappa one shot extra strong for me! It’s tea all the way for me! But much as I probably drink about 6 cups of English…

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 all these tiny multi-coloured things glinting back at me! We then spent about 45 minutes examining them all, aiming to find the oldest  ones (harder to find as they are…

In which I am not well

top: H&M skirt: Zara Vest top: Primark I genuinely have done nothing and worn nothing of interest, hence this outfit being worn about 2 weeks ago and lingering on my memory card. It isn’t even an exciting outfit. I just like bows, and polka dots. So I think I tempted fate when I said in this post that nothing thrilling would happen on Tuesday. Tuesday night/Wednesday morning saw me sat in A&E for four and a half hours getting various tests done because I somehow managed to lose consciousness, crumple…

In which I go to LDNLunch

So I was pootling round Asda on friday night when Eloise tweeted me to see if I was still interested in coming to the Blogger meet she had been slaving away on! My answer was a resounding YES PLEASE. I told Sam as we were at the checkout, and he was like, “you’re going where, to meet who? 40 complete strangers?! Have fun then…” So off I trotted to London the next day to meet some of my favourite onliners! We met at a bar where some football watching gents…

In which I go to work 2

OH MY GOD THERE’S THREE OF ME! Skirt: New Look, Top: Primark, Cardigan: Peacocks Kept the theme going with bows on my shoes too! (also Primark) Another work outfit. The skirt is made of stretchy jersey stuff, like the shorter versions in various colours newlook do, its double material in some places, but because of the way I sit at work (with my legs crossed to one side under my arse normally) and the way I walk, it gets a bit baggy at the knees, so needs to be washed…

In which I wear a playsuit

Playsuit: Peacocks, £10 in the sale, was £35. Black body to preserve modesty: H&M no shoes because I wore this on Sams birthday when we had an open house type of thing. The sleeves are gathered at the hem, and have frills sewn in at the shoulders for extra ‘pouffe’ which hasn’t photographed too well! I didn’t really pay too much attention to the makeup I was putting on because I was baking at the same time, so applying between batches of brownies and cookies, so I shall say this:…

In which I go to Heidelberg

  Heidelberg is possibly the prettiest city there ever was! It has a castle, a river (Neckar) with arched bridges, lots of church spires and is nestled in a wooded valley. The epitome of picturesque. When I was there it was a very cold and foggy day, so hopefully one day I will visit in the summer and see it drenched in glorious sunshine! Just over a week after we left, the river froze over! The view towards the city from the Castle. (I didnt mean for this to be…
