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….

"To Sarah, some of my art, you are one of those rare and special things, a true beliver in love"

"To Sarah, some of my art, you are one of those rare and special things, a true believer in love"

This picture was a gift from a gorgeous girl who goes by the name of Jewels and who i speak to lots on Twitter. (And not forgetting Edie!) We all have this really sweet thing where we just send each other long essays about love and fashion and i genuinely look forward to their tweets. Jewels, like me, is a hopeless romantic. But eventhough i have believed in love in other people, i never ever thought it was something for me. I love getting lost in a romantic films and always adored the idea of a consuming romance but i just never thought i would want to be the one who was consumed by something like that. It was one of those things that always seemed so good from a distant, but scared me to death when it became a reality..

For me, being single represented everything i was proud of. It made me feel independent, mature, in control and probably quite free in an odd way and I definately enjoyed it. At the time – with two previous relationships under my belt – i was living in a flat with a friend and having such a brilliant time just learning how to be independent and going out and doing what single girls do. A relationship was never even a consideration & eventhough i did enjoy single life, it isn’t anything compared to what a relationship brings. Love is definately for me..

But that brings me to the next point, “The Ex Files” and can we ever really be friends with our exes? And more importantly, their partners too? I have two exes, one i talk too a little and one i dont. Not really because either of us decided it would be that way, but just because it was a quite messy ending and thats just how it goes..

I like the idea of being friends with exes, after all, you have been in an intimate relationship with them and you were pretty much BFF’s at one point but it hasn’t really ever happened like that for me. Not because i want them back or because we were so in love it’s unbearable to see them with another etc but just because we were young and in the nicest way this could sound, we’ve changed. I’m definately not the same person i was a few years ago and it’s better that way. I have a lot of friends, but a lot of them are on the same terms as the exes, i.e polite hellos, goodbyes, how are you etc, but just because there exes should it be different? I just don’t feel like i need them, i have friends, and then i have my great friends who i’d do anything for and vice versa, and if you know they don’t feel the same about you and it’s a mutual parting, why should you be friends?

What do you guys think? Friends with exes, good or bad?

Lots of people have varied oppinions on this so it would be good to get your feedback. This is going to be a Podcast issue on week 2 so let’s have your comments to read on air!

Update for the podcast, we have a plan now! Were hoping to start recording on Monday 4th May so keep checking in for that. Were really excited and hope you are too! The link is in the side bar so make sure you subscribe so you don’t miss anything! Also, i have updated a page in the Lust List section on a few peices i saw over the weekend whilst browsing the web! So make sure you check that out!

My boyfriend is running the London Marathon on Sunday so were off to London for the weekend. I swear i’m more nervous than him! If you have some spare change lingering around, PLEASE sponsor him! He’s running it for a local charity called Myton Hospice and it’s going to a really good cause so help anyway you can!!

And, thats it from me, i’m being badgered to leave, leave your comments and views, i love reading them!

Sarah xoxo
