I'm Back!

Apologies for my absence, I have been lolling around Berlin with Lucy for the past few days & all the traveling has worn me out!

Here are a few snaps from our trip...

All photography thanks to Lucy, bar the last snap.

Once I have regained my energy from early morning flights, I shall be back, posting more regularly again.

Love Affair

It seemed as though my Ralph Lauren love affair was doomed, but then, just as I'd resigned myself to a life of regret, my Aunt stepped in & saved the day.

Et voila!!!  I am a happy woman!


New In!

After neatly putting my new loves into my wardrobe, I thought it was about time I had a clear out.  A relatively thorough one.

These metallic bronze heels were £150 from Kurt Keiger & I bought them to go to the ballet many many years ago.  After a great performance of the Nutcracker, we headed over to Harrods for a look at the sales & then went to dinner...It was a little rainy, the polished floors of Harrods were a little slippy & as I was only about sixteen, it was just all too much & I gave up on them, so they became relegated to the back of the wardrobe.

I've had many a clear out in the past, but I chose to keep these for sentimental reasons, however, I feel ready to let them go now, so I'm popping them on the shop.

Farewell sweet memories...

Love Affair

Oh hello you, sweet little black suede block heels...It's been a while.

Many weeks were spent pawing over you in Topshop, wishing & hoping you could be mine, but knowing that saving for my trip to Berlin was somewhat more important.  Then, when all hope had nearly gone, you made yourself half price in the sale & I knew, I simply knew, you had to be mine.

Ah, it's what love affairs were made of...


Love Affair

I have finally decided on where I shall be spending my 25th (eek) birthday: Tuscany!

I want to stay in a plush hotel in the middle of the Italian countryside, with some of my best friends, doing nothing but sunbathing every day beside the outside pool & eating delicious Italian grub in the hotel's restaurant every evening.

No sightseeing (unless said friends demand it), no plans, no pressure.  Just RELAXATION!





My beloved Ralph Lauren sweater has been REDUCED by 70% & is now only £178.50!!!

I may cry.  Oh heck, I will cry.

I'm going to Berlin at the end of the month, so I'm saving for that & can't afford to buy it.

Love Affair

I NEED these Zara pants in my life!  They are fab-u-lous!

To prove their fabulossity, I spotted them on Sandra over at 5 inch and up.

If Sandra's got them...I want them...!

Urgh, literally love/hate Nicole Richie, I mean, how dare she be so damn fabulous!

I NEED her bejeweled leggings & that dress!

Love Affair

One of my besties came for a visit today, with my Godson Alfie.

We went for a walk into town & had lunch at the Cupcake Factory.

Cupcakes were scrummy!

Life is better when you share it with those you love.

Love Affair

(my old skool Casio inside the Kors)


I've been so exceptionally busy today, but I made sure to make time to finally get the Kors adjusted.

I had four links removed & now it fits perfectly & I can happily wear my beloved!

Quote Of The Day

"You can spend minutes, hours, days, weeks or even months over-analysing a situation; trying to put the pieces together, justifying what could've, would've happened...or you can just leave the pieces on the floor & move the fuck on." - Tupac

Love Affair

That's right bitches, my favourite show is back!

As of ce soir, the first episode of season four aired on E4 in the UK.

Unfortunately...I didn't realise it was on & so totally missed it...However, I'm about to catch up on it now.

Ah, isn't life so much better now we can watch everything online!?

I'm so happy that my Tuesday nights will be filled with my obsessive 90210 love once more.


One Hundred Years In Ten Minutes


This is like a history lesson compressed into a short ten minute watch.

I think the running theme here is...war!

Let's hope 2012 is full of happy events, rather than disastrous ones.

Quote Of The Day

"I hate to advocate drugs, alcohol, violence or insanity to anyone, but they've always worked for me." - Hunter S. Thompson


Love Affair

What's that, Batiste now comes in ginormous size!?  Damn straight it does!

To show it's new gargantuan size, I have pictured it with the original size, which, by the by, is itself bigger than the original original size...but that's another Wagon Wheel story.

Now my ever growing mane can always be so fresh & so clean clean!


Love Affair

I got it, I finally got it!  I went & bought my beloved Michael Kors watch!

 In the end I bought the light coloured version, mainly because there was only one left in stock & I panicked.  But I still fully intend to purchase the tortoiseshell too.  Hey, a girl needs options!

Unfortunately, I am unable to wear my beloved at the moment, as it's far too big for my petite wrist, so I need to go & get several links removed first.  Hopefully I can get it done real soon, as I'm dying to put the old skool Casio to bed & bust out the Kors!

I can now finally write this off my Wish List!

Bonne Année

Bonne Année mes amis!!!

I spent New Year's Eve snuggled up on the couch with Mr Piggles, wolfing down another slice of the Girdlebuster (will it ever end!?) & watching Breakfast At Tiffany's.

Midway through the film I randomly decided to make another batch of mince pies.  This time I decided to make sweet pastry & although they're still not Nigella's standards, they do taste much better.

In fact, I was making said mince pies when mère informed me it was officially 2012!!!

So now that we are in a new year, it's time to make those New Year's Resolutions:

Numéro un: After spending rather excessively on myself over the holidays, I think it's time to contemplate being a little more selfless & a lot less selfish!  I'll never be Mother Teresa, but every good deed & all that.

Numéro deux:  Although I made this resolution last year & clearly didn't keep it too long, I shall endeavor to make it once more; I want to attempt to try to look after myself.  Eat healthily, get my hair & nails did, that kinda thing.  Keep myself looking so fresh & so clean clean.

To be honest, I think that's about it for 2012.  Why demand too much of myself.  I'm a lazy bugger after all.

 Happy 2012 guys!
