Thursday.

'Aluminum reproduction of 5th-century Egyptian sandal'.

Afternoon!

As you all know i love shoes, so for Christmas last year my best friend Harriet thought it would be quite apt to give me a present for my new desk at work. The gift was a ‘Shoe A Day’ calender that basically shows you a different shoe everyday and sits very nicely on said desk. (Yummy!) The shoes aren’t just modern ones either, there are so many different styles and eras everyday – i love it! I don’t know why i haven’t talked about it sooner but from now on everytime i blog, i’m going to use the shoe page as the header so you can see how weird and wonderful the shoes are and how varied they can be.

Obviously, as you can see above, not all shoes are particularly attractive but todays is quite funny because it obviously doesn’t know British weather at all. This morning when i turned it over i was like “Ha, finally a sandal when it’s sunny!” Shortly after those small words spoken, it rained – typical!

Me & my friends are going on a road trip early hours on Sunday and i am SO excited. There are 8 of us driving down to the South of France for a week so should be lots of fun and full of getting tanned and drunkies! I will do lots of videos and take photos too!

I won’t be logging on to the web for the whole week as i don’t have an iphone. I can, however, send tweets on Twitter but i can’t receive them and i can only receive direct messages so if were regular twitterers and your wondering why i’m being so vacant – that’s why! I’m going to try my best to get lots of blog treats up and running on here for when i’m away so it doesn’t go stale!

Emily has done 1 out of 4 of her little series from the Laden Showrooms event. That’s up and running in the new section ‘Events & Collections’ and then underneath that header is the blog. Or Click here for a shortcut!

So, that’s all i’ve got for today but look out for more exclusive Laden Showrooms stuff soonies and more blogging bits and peices! Woohoo!

Love,

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!

 ~ Tuesday 3rd March 2009 ~

Oh, how stupid do i feel now after premature blogging about the delights of spring. If you have been outside today and nearly been taken away by the wind then i second that motion. Worst of all, it’s raining too, so I’ve had a ridiculously hilarious experience with a giant umbrella nearly taking me away – and I’m not a light person. Literally, on four occasions this giant umbrella turned itself inside out and was dragging me in the opposite directon screaming and swearing and loosing all composure with completely wild hair. HILARIOUS. Members of the public must have thought i was literally mental.

But, whilst i was dancing my way around the wind with wild hair and two left feet, every other woman i came across remained calm & relaxed and it reminded me of all the other times i fall into an embarrassing situation,  I always seem to be the one who ends up in me loosing all sense of dignity and watching others around me remaining composed and still looking fabulous whilst i look like a fiery beast. HOW DOES THIS HAPPEN!??

Had a great time in London on Saturday with my girlfriends. My favourite part (apart from the cool drinking places, getting dressed up and eating pizza) had to be falling into bed at 5am with my bestest and watching shameless and giggling for ages. For reasons i cannot remember, the word ‘Schlong’ appeared to have us in fits of giggles and we couldn’t stop talking about past experiences, hilarious male disasters and recreating news headlines and adverts for our male friends who are under the thumb and are never allowed any fun. Brilliant.

After a hectic weekend of travelling and drinking, this week has kicked off to a very bad start diet wise. I really honestly cannot stop thinking about cakes and sweeties and it’ driving me crazy. I’ve ended up throwing the diet down the pan and giving in and now have a sugar overload situation and worst headache ever. So disappointed in myself.

I did a lot of thinking on the train home though. My ipod is like a throwback from the 90’s full of cheesy stuff but it really helps relive certain experiences and gets me thinking. I’m entering a writing competition (don’t want to say too much to jinx it) which has to be in next month so I’m really conjuring up some feelings and musics a brilliant way to relive stuff. Especially if you, like me, tag a song to a particular situation and just listening to it brings everything back. Bliss!

Back to the important stuff,  Becky’s section is nearly finished, her first article is going to be on fake tan so keep checking for that. She’s trialled some at the weekend and has some brilliant advice for you ladies. Also, tomorrow I’ll be updating the Lust List section with my favourite topic, KILLER HEELS.
