I wish i had been this creative...

I wish i had been this creative...

Ahh, I’ve had a really bad week so far. Monday i had yet another ridiculous experience in the rain. (SORRY, i know this isn’t intended to be a weather blogbut it seems i have a pretty bad time with the weather at the moment..) and i couldn’t take the awful umbrella out because of last times disaster so i ended up buying a copy of the Sun to use like in the old American films when business men in trench coats run across roads to jump into cabs in New York and look gorgeous and romantic. I, however, did not. The wind was against me and the paper just did NOT want to stay still. It was a wet, windy, papery disaster. I even got mocked at by a couple of kids.

Note to self: gold moccasins don’t like the rain..

  

When Women Rule The World.

When Women Rule The World.

 

Moving on, I saw a programme the other night called ‘When Women Rule The World’ and it was seriously the biggest pile of rubbish EVER. I’m not a feminist, but i’m not against women’s rights either. I just honestly believe women and men should be equal and they’ve already shown this, physically and mentally. The programme just throws it all down the drain. If you haven’t seen it, it’s about these 8 or 9 women who run a tribe together and they’re the leaders. There are 10 guys who have to do ANYTHING the women say and if they don’t they get punished. The winner does get £30,000 for good behaviourbut even that doesn’t seem worth the money to get treated like rubbish!  The one episode i watched was this poor guy who was a bit of an alpha male and in no way enjoyed being told off by women but (he was funny because he made a comment about one of the women looking like an angry Diana Ross – she really did!) anyway the women had these really stinky attitudes and just kept eviling the men and demanding they clean up (even when they did, they shouted more?) it was just stupid. It maybe could’ve been a good experiment if the woman didn’t treat the men so awfully on the first day!

 I do think a lot of men still believe in the whole ‘women clean, men work’ scenario but lots of men DO stay at home whilst the woman works so it’s much different then it used to be. Obviously everyone differs with there own views but  i have to admit, when i was single i felt so much more of an ‘Independent Woman’, ‘Sisters are Doing it for Themselves’, ‘I’m Every Woman’ kinda gal but sometimes, i really enjoy feeling looked after, wined and dined and protected by a male but women should definitely do it back from time to time…

 Fun Sites:

My Dailybooth

My Dailybooth

As you’ve all probably noticed, on the side bar there is my Twitter and Dailybooth accounts i keep updating. Follow me on both if you have them! If you don’t know what Dailybooth is, it’s a fun little site where you upload pictures of yourself daily like on a webcam, or macbook etc to show how you change day-to-day. I’m finding it really fun so check it out!

Sorry I’ve neglected the blog lately. I’ve found it really hard to be creative in a place that makes me kind of miserable 8 hours a day but i promise I’ll keep on the ball now. I’ve had a bit of a nightmare with video blogging though. It definitely is happening but i wanted to get a web cam up & running first to do personal mini videos to make it more visual until i got a proper video camera but I’ve tried 4 now and had no luck. Went out and got a cheaper 5th one today thats had good reviews so fingers & toes crossed!

Okay, couple of updates. ‘Becky’s tried and tested’ section has got TWO new installments for you to check out and I’ve put up a little humorous bit under ‘Beauty & Style Tips’ about a disaster i had with my eyebrows. Becky’s are relevant to it so check them out. Tomorrow I’mhoping to get up another bit for ‘Lust List’ and hopefully crack on with some videos so it’s very exciting. The subscriptions button was also a little bit broken but I’ve managed to fix it now so don’t forget to subscribe so you don’t miss out on anything!  

So, sorry this has been so long winded, but i had lots to update you on! If you’ve got any comments, pictures or even video responses  for anything relevant on the blog, or just to say HELLO! then definitely do it because i love hearing what you have to say and what your up too etc!

Big love,

Sarah xox

Daffodils

Daffodils

When i was little, my dad stumbled home in the early hours and bought my mum some daffodils stolen from someone else’s garden as a gift. This always seemed so sweet, romantic and a little rebelious to me. Every time i see one, they remind me of being a child again. (Which i love because it was always lots and lots of fun!) I always consider Mother’s day to be really big occasion, but for mine, she’s SO hard to buy for. Not because she’s ungrateful or anything, but because she can’t have the usual generic presents like chocolate & alcohol and only likes one type of perfume that the whole family end up buying at Christmas so she ends up with a serious backlog! So, i’ve been doing some internet browsing and found some treats you all might like for gift ideas for your mummys and you can even tell your pops too!  Happy Mothers Day! xo 

Warm her up. 

Basile Floral Chiffon Silk Scarf £41.89

Basile Floral Chiffon Silk Scarf £41.89

   I love love love silk scarves. I have tons and the collection keeps building every time i go to a charity shop or vintage shop because they are so cheap and each one is always different . Some even have weird/wonderful patterns on such as a random dog or something. I found an Italian company which does have a UK site and it’s called Forzieri and has all sorts of scarfs, beautiful leather gloves, shoes, bags etc for him and her. I found a lovely silk scarf  for £41.89 which is longer than the average scarf, but you can choose from some gorgeous colours. They are specially made in Italy, pure silk and delivered in 24 hours! Perfect gift! The gloves are from the same site and come in a range of amazing colours too. They are real leather but unlined so unsure how warm they’d be but they do have a bigger selection on the site with lining but they cost a  bit more money. The ones i looked at are perfect for spring. Below is  just one of the colours but there are more available on the site such as hot pink, mustard yellow, lilac, turqoise, white & black.

Mint Unlined Leather Gloves £56.09

 Pamper her.

 

Pampering

Pampering

 

There are TONS of ways to get pampered, but i came across a brilliant deal on Lastminute.com which seemed like a bargain. For £12.50 you can treat your mum (or yourself..or both!) to two mini pampering treats such as a pedicure, a manicure, waxing, tanning, a massage or a facial. I’ve had a look at the details and you’ll receive a voucher valid for 9 months but you should book the appointment before then to ensure the salon is free. Each treatment will last around 20 minutes each and there are 50 participating salons nationwide. Bargain! (although it doesn’t say where/which salons on the site but if your open to adventure then this sounds like a good laugh!) Check out the link above for full T&C’s before purchasing anything! Another site with lots of pampering on was Buy a Gift.co.uk and it had some great bargains for spa treatments and even a photo shoot for mother and daughter. Click the link above to see more! 

 

Give her a Gadget!  

 If your mum is gadget savvy, then I want one of those.com is the perfect place to go. They have all sorts of quirky gadgets on there such as iPod alarm clocks, Emergency phone chargers, Diamante Mice for computers and so on. The prices start really cheaply as well so there definitely worth keeping on your list for birthdays and especially Fathers Day!

 

 Give her some Charm.

Charm Bracelet Example

Charm Bracelet Example

 

 All ladies  love expensive jewellery (personally i prefer cheap and tacky..) but mum’ s love it. I think charm bracelets are a lovely gift because each occasion they can keep being added too and personalised.  Links of London have a charm maker website and prices start from £70. They’ve got tons of different charms you can choose from and they cost around £45 per charm.

For something a little bit cheaper, i found the base bracelet from The Charm Store, Amazon which is cheaper costing only £61.60 reduced from £154 and the charms are around £5 upwards. So it’s definitely worth shopping around for.

 

 

 

Personalise her Card.

There is only one site which i will recommend for this, and it’s Moonpig.com (YES, i know the advert is annoying  BUT if you can see past the pig in a space helmet and annoying jingle, you will come across something quite wonderful). They are a brilliant site for personalising cards. You can add photos, any writing you want to other cards and it for a standard sized card will only set you back £2.99! It really makes a card special. You can even add flowers as an extra gift. For Valentines day, me and my boyfriend both sent each other cards from it and i chose the ‘Oi!’ background (A rip of Hello! mag) and added loads of sweet photos with somehumourous text it was such a lovely change from standard cards!

 

 So, I hope that helped you guys figure out some gift ideas. Comments below on any gift’s you’ve already bought or anything else you’d like to comment about!

 ~ Tuesday 3rd March 2009 ~

Oh, how stupid do i feel now after premature blogging about the delights of spring. If you have been outside today and nearly been taken away by the wind then i second that motion. Worst of all, it’s raining too, so I’ve had a ridiculously hilarious experience with a giant umbrella nearly taking me away – and I’m not a light person. Literally, on four occasions this giant umbrella turned itself inside out and was dragging me in the opposite directon screaming and swearing and loosing all composure with completely wild hair. HILARIOUS. Members of the public must have thought i was literally mental.

But, whilst i was dancing my way around the wind with wild hair and two left feet, every other woman i came across remained calm & relaxed and it reminded me of all the other times i fall into an embarrassing situation,  I always seem to be the one who ends up in me loosing all sense of dignity and watching others around me remaining composed and still looking fabulous whilst i look like a fiery beast. HOW DOES THIS HAPPEN!??

Had a great time in London on Saturday with my girlfriends. My favourite part (apart from the cool drinking places, getting dressed up and eating pizza) had to be falling into bed at 5am with my bestest and watching shameless and giggling for ages. For reasons i cannot remember, the word ‘Schlong’ appeared to have us in fits of giggles and we couldn’t stop talking about past experiences, hilarious male disasters and recreating news headlines and adverts for our male friends who are under the thumb and are never allowed any fun. Brilliant.

After a hectic weekend of travelling and drinking, this week has kicked off to a very bad start diet wise. I really honestly cannot stop thinking about cakes and sweeties and it’ driving me crazy. I’ve ended up throwing the diet down the pan and giving in and now have a sugar overload situation and worst headache ever. So disappointed in myself.

I did a lot of thinking on the train home though. My ipod is like a throwback from the 90’s full of cheesy stuff but it really helps relive certain experiences and gets me thinking. I’m entering a writing competition (don’t want to say too much to jinx it) which has to be in next month so I’m really conjuring up some feelings and musics a brilliant way to relive stuff. Especially if you, like me, tag a song to a particular situation and just listening to it brings everything back. Bliss!

Back to the important stuff,  Becky’s section is nearly finished, her first article is going to be on fake tan so keep checking for that. She’s trialled some at the weekend and has some brilliant advice for you ladies. Also, tomorrow I’ll be updating the Lust List section with my favourite topic, KILLER HEELS.
