 Morning guys & girls!

I’ve been ploughing myself with tea today to try and distract myself from tiredness – It’s taking over! I think the weekend really does catch up with you mid-week if you’ve done quite a lot of “socialising” on your weekend!

This weekend was quite hectic for me & Roy. On Friday we went for “quiet drinks” which always turns somehow into a party. We ended up at Roy’s best friends house for a freezing cold pool party which, looking back at the photos and videos the next day, proved it was actually a paddling pool with green water. But it was probably the most fun i’ve had in ages..although i’ve never smelt so bad the next day in my life..

   On Saturday we went to a firework/classical event at Warwick Castle and it was spectacular. It was like a totally civilised Glastonbury or something. There were thousands of people all sat with their folding chairs and tables facing towards a huge stage where a beautiful full band played classical music. (Some people had put so much effort in and bought mini banquets with candles too!) The fireworks were the best i’d ever seen ..just..amazing! I’ve got some videos i’m gonna upload later so watch out for them!

 I was starting to panic that i had nothing nothing to wear to this event so i hit New Look and woah..their sale is amazing! I got 4 really cute dresses for under £40 (the price of one at Topshop..!) Anyway, i decided to wear a cute navy prom dress with little roses on it but to try and not look too over dressed, i dressed it down with my denim jacket and white/dirty pumps. I’d had my hair in a really high bun for 4 days (don’t judge me, the weather was SO hot all week!) so when i took it down, i looked a little bit like a crazed Tina Turner so, to save time and not wash my hair, i cliped half of my head up in kirby-grips, and dragged my fringe back kind of to one side and let other peices fall on the other side occasionally gripping little bits up. Here are a couple of photos but excuse the sarcastic/tired/VERY hungover face and the bruised arm..

I feel like i’ve totally neglected my wardrobe recently so I went into H&M on Friday and picked up this really cute sequinned waistcoat for £19.99. I love wearing it over vest logo tops or simple dresses. I like it because it hangs quit baggy & isn’t too formal but the sequins are quite fun so you feel kind of dressed up..but trendy, ya’know?

 H & M Waistcoat - £19.99

  Urban Outfitters had an amazing sale on their stuff too recently. I picked up this necklace & make-up bag for £4.99 each, both reduced from £24. AMAZING! The necklace is a horse with a working clock attached, and the make-up bag is by Betsy Johnson and comes in pink or black!

This rain is driving me crazy now.. I know, i know, I constanly moan about the weather but when you go out in sandals and end up skidding around like your on ice cos’ the rain is hammering it down..it’s bound to make you angry! So today i’m donning a polkadot dress, leggins, PUMPS, and sequinn waistcoat..not warm but i’m DRY at least!

Podcast #7 is up and running if you haven’t already checked it out!

Hey guys before i rant on, here is my outfit today..

Sorry about the picture quality, my camera is good but i had nobody to take the photo for me so had to do the old mirror jobby!

Todays Outfit.

The dress is my new favourite thing. It’s from Primark and just so comfy for the summer. I love how the arms are batwinged too so it feels fitted but loose and airy at the same time! Its got an elasticated bit through the middle that can be put really high up, or quite low down, depending on your mood! The leggins are also Primark from a few months ago but i love them because they’ve got a cute little zip at the bottom which could look chavvy but i think with the right outfit, it looks cool? Maybe not? Anyway, the sandals are last year from Miss Selfridge, and my hair is just pulled together with a croc clip!

So, this week’s podcast is up and running. Click the little headphones in the side bar or the link below to go and check it out! Listening back i could just hear in my voice that i was a little tipsy so i need to lay off the red wine next week..silly sarahies..

I’ve had a day off work today so i’ve been baking some cupcakes! It’s Kate’s birthday party tomorrow so were going for sushi and then getting very very drunkies so i’ll no doubt get some videos or stupid photos uploaded afterwards..

If you follow me on Twitter then you have already heard that were teaming up with Corsets-UK to give away some prizes each week. They’re a company that sell some gorgeous corsets so check them out.

Podcast #5

**I thought i’d posted a blog to say podcast # 6 was up but i didn’t so this is the link for that too! Podcast #6

Friday 5th June 2009

Marley & Me.

Marley & Me.

..you caught me off guard! Ha. Sorry i couldn’t resist. Last night when we were recording a podcast, we couldn’t stop giggling about what you guys would think if we started introducing the podcast by going: “ooh, gosh, hello..you’ve caught us off guard..” like a cheesy advert or something. Ha. Sorry..Moving on..

SO, Podcast #3 is ready to rock & roll. This week we talk about White Blazers, Last years summer wardrobe, Band t-shirts, Summer nail varnishes, French Letter condom reveiw and the serious topic is ‘Men & Women: Why do we call each other Slags & Pimps?’. Also, lots and lots of giggling, banter and answering listener mail!

Emily has filled in a ‘Who The Hell..’ section above too so find out more about Emily in there!

We’ve decided to release the podcasts every Friday now so it keeps it regular for you guys. It is still going to be weekly too so make sure you keep checking back! Don’t forget for every podcast there is a new section in the side bar aptly named ‘Weekly Podcast Links’ which will have images, links and reviews that we’ve talked about each week on the podcast!

Also, don’t forget to subscribe on the side bar. We’ve got lots of cool stuff coming up soon and some competitions and some of the winners will be picked from the subscribers so get in there first!

Right, enough business. The weather has been HOT lately. Which i really love except for the fact that i seem to have jacked in boxercise, dance and running for the past couple of months so i feel like such a bloated, gusty mare. And i finally realised something had to change during the hottest day of the year looking down at my outfit which was completely black. Black tights, shoes, skirt, cardi…Ugh. Black is supposed to be flattering, not boiling. It’s unfair! But i am determined to get back on track so will keep you updated with that!

Also, been planning a holiday for around September i think which would be amazing as i have never ever been out of the country! (I know, I know, whole world out there etc etc..) I will get out, i have today sent off for my passport so anyone who knows me will be thinking “FINALLY??!..WOAH!”

OK, i have officially ran out of steam. This has been my first night alone in months and lots of girlfriends i know would be pamering themselves but instead i’ve been listening to YouTube videos and Twittering all night..NOT HEALTHY! Seriously addicted. Oh, before i forget, Share Your Style has it’s own Twitter now, so make sure you follow that one for everything podcast and blog related gossip! Twitter.com/Shareyourstyle

OK OK i’m going now. But one more thing, because i’ve been a bit of a bad blogger lately (and considering i have big things planned for Share Your Style) i am looking for any contributors who would like to add things to the blog,  help out with fashion sections or anyone who simply would just love to get involved. So either email me, Tweet me or comment below!

Kisses,

P.s, for a seriously sexy chilled out song, check this chick out – i love it! Had it on repeat for AGES! Lush.

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!

Podcast #1!

Posted on: May 12, 2009

Wednesday 13th May 2009

So, here it is! The first ever podcast Podcast # 1! I’m reeeally excited and nervous that it’s finally going on the web. I’ve been going on about doing it for about a month now so feels great to have recorded the first. It’s me, Becky and our two great girl friends Kate & Emily who wanted to get involved too. It’s very giggly but we were nervous!  We’ve had quite a few boys who have expressed an interest and subscribed ready to download so i’m hoping they’re not to disappointed at the lack of manly topics but it’s something were gonna work on to try and make it a bit more man friendly, but equally with some girl gossip because my intention in the beginning was a girly style blog
My good boy pal Sammy (@samjbmason if your on Twitter – follow him!) has spent hours mixing it and adding the cute little music for it so i hope you guys like it!  At times you can hear crunching but were working on improving it for coming weeks and it can only get better right!?
So for the next one we need your questions! Ask us anything. We want beauty tips and hints, style questions, questions if you need advice on anything, you can even ask us personal questions just whatever you want to talk about. Send them as comments on here, via emails (the address is in the contact us page) and on Twitter but make sure you put #syspod after your questions so i can find them really easy! for example:  What’s your favourite brand of chocolate? #syspod SIMPLE!

Right, so thats it! Listen away and let me know what you think!

Kisses,

Sarah xo

Hello gang, last night was a bit of a joke. It’s been a week since we recorded the podcast and i still haven’t put it online. It’s a pretty boring story but the software is basically not doing what it should be doing, and for some reason vista just doesn’t like anything Audacity or Podcast related so I was up pretty late being  a bit angry but then i used my brain and got things moving and finally managed to format it to MP3. It’s now been sent to my friend Sam who is gonna do something special with it so hopefully it will get online any day now! Wahoo! Thanks for being so patient guys, had a lot of subscribers too so keep them coming! (Simply click the headphones on the right to head to the podcast, and subscribe either via itunes or email!)

My weekend was pretty hectic. I thought i had Toncilitus or something so felt pretty disgusting but on Saturday our friends Cafe Racer had a gig so we went a long to that and ended up getting pretty drunk in the middle of the afternoon at a very grungy dark pub (when it was gorgeous and pretty outside!) and it only took 4 pints of Strongbow before i was scoffing chinese buffet at 4pm and the rest is a disgusting blur. All i know is i got home at 6pm Sunday feeling very stinky indeed. Ugh.

Feeling better this week and have managed to sell lots of shoes that were clogging up my bedroom floor on eBay. (How good am i!?) It only happened because i bought some shoes from Topshop.com that were amazing on the basis i sold some to make up the money but they didn’t fit anyway so now i’m having to sell the lot. Bonus!

I’ve done a cute little 6 minute video from the Marathon weekend if you fancy a bit of a watch. It’s a bit cheesy and silly but you might enjoy that kind of thing so i’ll upload that at some point!

Pointless mini blog really, just touching base! What have you guys been up too? Tell me a story xox

"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
