Posted on: May 27, 2009

Wednesday 27th May 2009

Booyah! SO, here it is Podcast #2!We took your feedback and opinions on board and tried to butch it up a bit so hopefully you will like it! Each week it’ll keep  getting better and better as we improve our podcasting skills but hopefully you’ll all be more interested in the content anyway!

As you listen to it, you will see we sometimes link certain products back to the blog so i’ve created a whole new tab at the top of the blog which says ‘Weekly Podcast Links’ which will be the header for different pages each week that the podcast is updated. Clever!

Were recording podcast #3 tomorrow evening so any questions, tips, beauty advice, product reveiws or even just simple shout outs will be greatlyreceived so leave comments below, send me twitters or hit me up on facebook/email. We LOVE getting listener mail so GET IN TOUCH!

We are also looking into a competition this week so keep checking back…

"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!

Hello fashionistas,

Just a quick update! Share Your Style is going to be turned into it’s very own Podcast! The video blogging idea will stilbe happening but i thought that Podcasting could be a fun ideato turn into a show! I’ve had a few ideas already but im hooking up with Becky tonight to mind-map and see what ideas she has and hopefully come up with something really fun for you all. It will hopefully turn out so that we manage to do it weekly/fortnightly and talk about product reviews, style advice, what’s occurring weekly in fashion etc.

If you don’t quite know what Podcasting is, it is basically broadcasting online – kind of similar to a radio show – but to a broader audience and online. Also, you can subscribe via iTunes and download it to your iPod and MP3 players to have a listen on the go! Bonus!

I’m really excited to get this going. I think it’s a really fun idea to get everyone talking. So, we need anything you think we should talk about! Whether that’s questions about fashion disasters, style tips, product reviews, agony aunt style dilemmas and you can leave them as comments below and also send us emails (the email address in the ‘Contact Us’ page).

This is the link to the Podcast which hasn’t got any content on YET but if you subscribe, you’ll be the first to find out when the first episode is up and running so you wont miss a thing!

So, send us your questions!!

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.

 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.

 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!
