 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!

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!

 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!
