I feel obliged to write a post about something thats very womanly and a little bit disgusting but that needs to be addressed! This morning, after having a gorgeous but exhausting Christmas day eating my bodyweight in Matchmaker chocolates and Turkey roast dinner, I decided to treat myself to an indulgent bath to read a book. This relaxation plan was totally destroyed when i looked down and saw what could only be described as a couple of Cocker Spaniels resting comfortably on my legs “CRIPES” I thought, “Where the HECK did all that hair come from?! Have I honestly not waxed or shaved these little bad boys for so long that they now resemble PUPPIES??!!” 

Here’s the thing, I wear tights all day, every day and only ever have a quick glance in the shower so I haven’t checked out my pins out properly in ages and they’re totally neglected! The colour resembles an off-white/yellow colour (Which i can only assume is old tan?!) and they’re covered in bruises and, of course, the  previously mentioned HAIR. My poor boyfriend! And there’s me thinking that when he clutched my legs in the middle of these cold, wintery nights that it was accidental or a new form of foreplay, now I realise he’s selfishly attempting to keep warm! 

It just comes down to the winter months, and that’s who I’m blaming. As soon as June hits, I scrub, shave, wax & tan. I use cream after cream to make my legs softer than a baby’s bottom and then wear the minimum clothes i can get away with so I can show off the hour workout for Chezza Cole inspired legs. THEN, as soon as September hits, I cover up, dont wax/shave and could easily be mistaken for a Wilderbeast hiding out in the woods waiting to get some scram for tea. 

Point I’m trying to make is, why do we feel the need to let ourselves go a little bit during the winter? Is it cause we feel there isn’t any need to bother if nobody but ourselves will be seeing it and we won’t be showing it off? If so, do we ever only preen ourselves so others can see our goodiesat their best? Have we forgotten who we should be preening ourselves for? Or is it simply a matter of wanting to feel snuggly in the winter months?  

 All i know is, after an embarrassed face and shaking my head at how badly i have let myself go, I quickly remembered Roy had gotten three razors for Christmas SO, now I stand, armed with a brand new Gillette (with matching wash bag and gel don’cha know!) and I’m ready to take on any challenge. 

Now all I’m dreading is seeing what my armpits look like….

Morning everyone! I’ve woken up and logged in to Twitter to find something very interesting  pop up. There is a new, more organised Twitter in town, and i like it veeeerrrrry much.

 They’ve decided to now give you the option  to create ‘lists’ for your Twitter to enable you to organise your followers or people your following ie; School friends, work colleagues etc and when you click your list, it only shows you the tweets from the people in that list..handy!

 I’ll show you a easy tutorial to help you make sense of the new Twitter lists!

  

 

new lists
Where lists are kept
 

create
After clicking lists, you get to add a list name & click ‘Create’

following
Then type in the name of the person you want to add to your list!

put them in a lists
Then, choose the list you would like them to go into by clicking the button!

5
Then when you click your newly created link in the side bar, it only shows those people added to it in your news feed..clever!

6
What’s also VERY cool is that other people can follow the list you’ve just made!

7
You may have notice that it even tells you how many times you’ve been listed in other groups!

8
What ever you save your list as is saved as a permanent link too so it directs you straight there! Eg: Mines – www.twitter.com/sarahies/ieschicks

 

 Right, i hope that gives you some insight in to the new Twitter Lists and gives you an idea as to how they workies. If you’ve got any questions leave them below!

Hey everyone!

So.. I am officially back! I know I didn’t take an official “break” and send out the generic “Seeya im off!” post but I did break up with my blog. We weren’t getting along like we used too. I had no words left to say and i was finding it a chore to keep up with so, after a lot of thought and 6 beautiful months, we took a break.
Of course like with all breakups it felt tough but after a month, a holiday & several shy logs on, we are officially back together & online..

It has been a weird few months. Everything is great but I’ve felt totally uninspired. It’s frustrating because one of the things I love doing is writing but when you have no words left it just feels really blank.

So, to kick start my first October post, I’ll do what a few bloggers have been doing at the moment which is the ‘In & Out’ post!

IN:

1) My sparkly new iPhone! (which I am blogging from right now..clever!) and I have spent a fortune in the apps store on silly games I don’t need but I am LOVING IT!!

2) Freederm gel. I think my pill was sending the skin on my face crazy & it came out in a rash so my mum (of all people!) had some freederm in her drawer & let me borrow it and it is a miracle worker I swear! My skin is like a baby’s bottom..lovely!

3) Lightened hair: I know the winter months are usually full of lovely dark nails and chocolate brunettes but I haven’t been very creative with my hair in AGES so I decided to get a dye and lighten it and it really worked! Loving having a new look!

OUT:

1) Winter colds to come..note to self: flip flops don’t work in October, no matter how sunny..brrr!

2) Gym: I only signed up yesterday and I am already dreading the burn! Bottom is size of small county so it is nescessary! Why does good food act so naughty on your body?!

3) Broken camera!! In Greece my camera decided to break so we had to use disposeables! As my friends know and predicted I had a camera glued to my hands the whole time..even if it was 5 bright yellow Greek cameras!

And that’s it! I just want to say a big thank you to everyone who has been checking back and leaving comments, you guys rock! I promise if we ever take a break again I will leave with plenty of notice!

I bought a few No7 gifts for a blog competition a while ago and never got round to it but it will still be happening so look out for that soon!

Huge kisses!

Me & Roy have officially been in a relationship for one year! Some of you already know this because i’ve been Twittering all day but i thought i would do a lovely little blog post and show you guys some pictures! For our anniversary he’s booked us in to see Grease in London tomorrow and were also staying in a posh Hyde Park hotel! Exciting! I’m taking him for Sushi tonight in our local town because it’s where we had our first date – nawww!

I know a year doesn’t sound like a long time in the scheme of things but it’s important to me because it’s the longest relationship i’ve ever had. Not for any particular reason but because it never felt right before. When me and Roy first met it was one of those friendships that just hit off instantly and we remained just friends for what seemed like ages but actually was only about 5 months. I wasn’t looking for anything other than a friend if i’m honest. I was in a totally strange place and just really hated the thought of another boy hurting me or ruining another friendship by making things complicated but i really enjoyed his company. He is literally hilarious and i found his humour so endearing. I’d heard he was sort of interested but i think i chose to ignore it because i didn’t want it to ruin anything but in the end, this sounds totally cheesey but it just fell into place, you know?

One of the first nights we met!

So now here we are a year on and i wouldn’t change any of it. He makes me laugh literally every single day. I tried to pick out a couple of serious photos but i can honestly say there isnt any! Either were both being silly or he’s doing a comedy face! Everytime we go on a night out you wont find me or my friends stood around looking bored. We all love to have a good dance and be silly and me and Roy always manage to make up some cheesey dance routine on the spot and generally being rediculous!

He’s probably going to kill me for that one. He wasn’t sick on me afterwards i swear! Haha.

 

One of the proudest moments of my whole life was when he ran the London Marathon in April. I’ve said before in a previous post and video about the event but he did amazingly. The morning of the marathon when he got on the train to go to the start, me and Harriet waved him off and we were both just totally proud of him. I loved that he was doing it for a charity he belived in and that eventhough he was so knackered, he did it in 4.5 hours and still looked amazing afterwards!

After the Marathon!

I love his kindness, his charm, he gives me tingles in my belly everytime we kiss and most of all i love that he makes me feel so special every day!

I love loving you Roy x x x x

 Afternoon ladies!

What do you think of today’s shoe? They’re actually more of a candy colour in person but i had to adjust the contrast a little because the sun was shining through the window and left a really bad glare and made them look too pale. I love them because they’re a) floral and b) SO 70’s with the chunky heel but still ladylike with the bow and peep toe..my favourite so far!

Last month Dawn Porter sent me, @gemmies_, @clareies & @Hunny_piesies a tweet on Twitter to say she was writing an article about Twitter friendships in Company Magazine and would we like to be in it. Needless to say, we all said YES straight away! How it all began was because on one of Dawn’s podcasties, her and Eileenies were quite drunkies and started putting ‘ies’ at the end of everyting. So, when they finished the podcast, they put both their Twitter names as @hotpatooties @eileenies. I’d been following Dawn for a while and so had the other three girls so we all changed our names to ‘ies’ on the end and so the Twitter ‘gang’ was created. We all then started talking more to Dawn and each other  (mainly about food, food and more food) and in all honesty, it feels like a gorgeous Twitter family over there – I love it! Also, we’ve had more people come and join in the fun too so the love just keeps on spreading! (@chatooties, @clarelouisies, @iam_shereesies & @kesstries)

Anyway, the magazine is out today (It’s only £2, go and buy it because it’s great and you also get a free mascara!) so i took a couple of photos of the article cause i love it but the quality isn’t amazing – sorryies!

 I’m also going to do a video later too just to harp on about it even more. But then i promise i will shut up!

Anyway, i’ve got holiday bits to sort out!

Speak soon,

Sarahies x x x

 

P.s, I feel i should quickly mention a few other girls who i also love following:  @dressjunkie, @ellacinderella & @zozeebo. These girls are so cute and lots of fun! They’re beauty bloggers too and definately know their stuff. Click their Twitter names to see their blogs!

Thursday.

Afternoon!

As you all know i love shoes, so for Christmas last year my best friend Harriet thought it would be quite apt to give me a present for my new desk at work. The gift was a ‘Shoe A Day’ calender that basically shows you a different shoe everyday and sits very nicely on said desk. (Yummy!) The shoes aren’t just modern ones either, there are so many different styles and eras everyday – i love it! I don’t know why i haven’t talked about it sooner but from now on everytime i blog, i’m going to use the shoe page as the header so you can see how weird and wonderful the shoes are and how varied they can be.

Obviously, as you can see above, not all shoes are particularly attractive but todays is quite funny because it obviously doesn’t know British weather at all. This morning when i turned it over i was like “Ha, finally a sandal when it’s sunny!” Shortly after those small words spoken, it rained – typical!

Me & my friends are going on a road trip early hours on Sunday and i am SO excited. There are 8 of us driving down to the South of France for a week so should be lots of fun and full of getting tanned and drunkies! I will do lots of videos and take photos too!

I won’t be logging on to the web for the whole week as i don’t have an iphone. I can, however, send tweets on Twitter but i can’t receive them and i can only receive direct messages so if were regular twitterers and your wondering why i’m being so vacant – that’s why! I’m going to try my best to get lots of blog treats up and running on here for when i’m away so it doesn’t go stale!

Emily has done 1 out of 4 of her little series from the Laden Showrooms event. That’s up and running in the new section ‘Events & Collections’ and then underneath that header is the blog. Or Click here for a shortcut!

So, that’s all i’ve got for today but look out for more exclusive Laden Showrooms stuff soonies and more blogging bits and peices! Woohoo!

Love,

Sarahies x x x

HELLO!

Sorry i’ve been away for a while again. I always seem to say sorry and then say it wont happen again but this time the reason wasn’t because i haven’t had anything to say but because i’ve been sooo busy planning for my holiday next week i just haven’t had the time – BIG KISS. Thank you to everyone who still keeps checking in, you rock!

The last time i blogged, me and my girlfriends had planned a ladies night out and it was GREAT! Me, Kate & VC went to a couple of quiet places first and shared bottles of wine so we could gossip and then went somewhere a bit more lively to meet Harriet for a dance. We ended up in a club where vodka redbull was only £1 so the night soon ended with my head in a toilet not feeling too fresh..NICE. Below are a couple of photos from the night:

Last week, apart from being hungover and searching for campsites, me & Emily went to a bloggers brunch in London for the Laden Showrooms and got a sneak peek at there A/W 2009 collection. We had such an amazing day and i’ll be posting a full blog about the ins and outs of that soonies! After the event i did a quick YouTube video of the day and just a quick hello really so you can view that by clicking the image below:
