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!

Thursday 11th June 2009

Afternoon guys and gals! Ugh. What a miserable day! The weather has gone from making me sweat to making me soaked  in 0.5 seconds flat, lovely! And Roy isn’t in work with me today so it’s turning out to be a very boring day indeed…

I haven’t really been up to much lately apart from working and podcasting. It’s life consuming but i love it! I have also finally sent off my passport which is good news. I really want to escape to somewhere beautiful soon. (I will probably still tweet..I’m still addicted!)

I’m wearing  cute little bow elastic headband today but it’s right on my pressure points at the side of my head and it’s making my head throb! Due to the fact i’m SO lazy, i have’t washed my hair in AGES so the complete up do was necessary and now i’m paying the price with a headache – ouchies!

Vanessa Jackman Photography.

 I love blog hunting because i love reading what other people have to say and I recently saw a blog that i’ve fallen in love with. I stumbled across a girl called Vanessa Jackman and her blog is all about her photography. Her photographic style is ‘Street’ and i just love it. Her pictures are beautiful and she manages to capture people in their greatest light. I love pictures when people look natural and she captures that ‘off-guard’ look really well. Because i was so impressed i emailed her but then i got a little worried that it might have freaked her out because i was a complete stranger who had stumbled across her blog and on a whim, decided i would email her. But to my surprise (and relief!)  she emailed straight back to say how happy she was that i had contacted her and that i had cheered her day up no end. I don’t think people say to each other enough if they like what they’re wearing or they enjoy what they’re doing. And we definately should because you don’t realise how much your words can affect someone’s mood and change their day! PLEASE go and check her out, she has some brilliant images. GO GO GO!

 

 

 Bargains, sales & freebies!

My gorgeous Twitter buddy @clareies told me about the Dorothy Perkins 3 day sale (started Wednesday 10th – Friday 12th) so i thought i’d pass it on. They’re currently giving customers 20% off EVERYTHING (even sale items!) and it’s a bloody good deal. I bought two dresses and a bracelet all for £64. Bargain! I’m searching for the perfect dress for Kate’s 21st Birthday next Saturday night and i’ve failed so far so hopefully one of these will fit!

Hello Bloggers!

I don’t know about you guys but the weather near me is shockingly bad so I’ve ended up sleeping for 1 out of 4 of my days off work. Boo. Also, for some reason, my throat feels like it’s the size of two walnuts so I’m trying to dose up on medicine so i can leave the house this evening and get a bit giddy but considering I’m still sat in my pants at 6pm – this seems unlikely…

I’ve been checking out some cool websites lately that are becoming quite addictive so i thought I’d tell you guys about them so you can check them out for yourselves!

    My Omgpop!

    My Omgpop!


    Omgpop! is a fun website full of all kinds of games for you to play against other people around the world. As you get better you receive different medals and points to become a higher rank! There’s a scrabble type one which i really enjoyed, and a sketch one where you draw something and your opponents have to guess what it is and so on. It’s a really fun idea if your bored!

     

     

    My Likaholix!

    My Likaholix!

Likaholix is a website based on ‘liking’ things. You basically type in what you ‘Like’ and it comes up with images and an option to write a review about it and then others can like it too! If somethings not listed, you can list it yourself so when anyone else searches for the same product it will then come up! It’s really cool because if you like something enough, you become what’s called a ‘Tastemaster’ in the subject. As you can see, on mine I’m a tastemaster in Fashion because i liked a certain amount of fashion things! Wahoo.

And, for all you Twitter users, there’s a site called Tweet Stats and it’s really interesting to do. All you need to do is type in your Twitter user name, and then you get a whole load of your stats since you’ve been using Twitter! It gives you the low-down of anything you’d need to know about a tweet. It gives you information about how often you tweet, what time of day your usually tweeting, how your tweeting and how often you’ve ‘@replied’ to somebody.

    My Tweet Stats!

    My Tweet Stats!

Also, there’s a ‘Tag Cloud’ option which shows you the most used words you’ve tweeted with. AND if that’s not enough, you can even change all the colours to make it look pretty…I’m finding it all very interesting interesting indeed!

My Tag Cloud!
My Tag Cloud!

So, a couple of sites you may not have known about! If you check them out, be sure to leave comments to let me know what you think! Or add me on the sites so we can play each other, or maybe i could tweet about something else than the above! Have you seen any sites you’d like to share? Leave your comments below too!

All this hunting has made me hungry…have a Good Friday! (See what i did there..hmph..)

Big Kisses!

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.

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!
