Bad blogger

Wow, have I been a sucky blogger or what?!!

The last few weeks have seriously FLOWN by, seriously, I can’t even remember what’s happened in between me blogging last and now, aside from the exhausting weekend I’ve just had with my mum looking at bridesmaid dresses for me. You’d think this would be an enjoyable task for all taking part but alas, no, because my mum is quite indecisive when it comes to some stuff, take colour schemes for example. She started off wanting burnt orange, gorgeous right? When you’re getting married in Cyprus you want vivid colours that blend with the country you’re in in my opinion…….but trying to find anything burnt orange at the time (last August/September) was impossible, nowhere had anything, so the colour changed to baby pink. Cute, no? NO. Because god dammit when we went to 2 major shopping malls this weekend, the White Rose and Trafford Centre we did the length of both malls several times and can away with, you guessed it, NOTHING! However we did come away with a potential new colour scheme. Olive green. Only it’s not an olive olive green……here, this is the dress we kinda like……..

 

This is called Anna Green according to BHS

 

It does look slightly darker in real life. So we may be going with green, because none of the shades of pink were right sooooo, but it’s ok, we still have….. *GULP* 4 months left. No need to panic right? Right???

 

Seriously though, it was fun this weekend to all go out together to look at them but I genuinely thought I was going to keel over at one point, this was either because I am completely unfit, or because they had the heat too high and it dehydrated me…..I’m going for the second option 😉

 

Who knows what the final decision will be, but I will keep you updated haha

 

Have I missed much??

 

Over and out xoxo

Mini Emergency Kit

Now, we all know my now that I am a serious Pinner and also adore Lauren Conrad’s blog so this post is really dedicated to her post about mini emergency kits.

Before Christmas LC posted a blog about last minute stocking stuffers (see link above) and I thought it was fantastic! Such a simple idea really, extremely useful, and yet, I’d never even thought about something like this. This is certainly on my list of possible gifts to make a person that has everything!

This post got me thinking though, I think I should have an emergency kit of my own. What would you all have in yours? LC’s personal recommendations were in the pic she posted below…..

The exact list of her items can be found here http://www.laurenconrad.com/post/beauty-911-locked-and-loaded.

 

This basically is just an excuse for me to go out and buy a cute little beauty case and fill it with lots of supplies haha

January sales!!

Is it wrong that we haven’t even got Christmas out of the way yet but I’m scoping out the shops for the January sales? Every time I go into Topshop or New Look I keep thinking, ooo I’ll look out for you in a week or so, or, ooo open Boxing Day! I’m even scouring Net-a-Porter too! Not that you can really predict what’s gonna be in the sale online so I don’t know why I’m bothering on that score but, I-just-can’t-help-it!!  I have my Christmas money burning a hole in my pocket but the Yorkshire person in me is saying ‘don’t spend it yet, just wait until everything has come down in price’.

This is what I feel like!!

I don’t want to sound like a stamping Stan but when you come away from what’s supposed to be a productive day shopping with nothing but 3 packs of raisins and a bag of prunes (I also have a Holland and Barrett obsession), there is something wrong my friends.

I will be making my presence felt though as soon as Boxing Day arrives, and I worry that I may look something like this….

The heat is on.....

SCORE!

Don't mess with a woman at a sale....

And then comes the reality that I can't fit anything else into my wardrobe dammit!

….and in that actual order! The Shopaholic film is one of my favourite films of all time, possibley because I can relate to her so well haha.

Online Shopping

I have to say, hand on heart, I do not know what I would have done this year without the internet! It has been my saviour this Christmas, I haven’t had to fight with people in the shops once, because when I’ve gone into towns, it’s been for pleasure and the odd bits! Though, yes, I did have the odd tantrum in Leeds because of Starbucks, they really should train their workers better, just the basics you know, like how to speak English! Always helps when discussing someones intolerances for a drink.

ANYWAY, I digress. Yesterday I helped my Grandma do her very first order online with Ocado and she’s so happy with them! They delivered tonight and everything was packed well for her and the dates were really good on the products. You always wonder don’t you if they’re gonna pull a Tesco on you and give you all the nearest dates so you have to eat 12 yoghurts, 4 loaves of bread, a pack of Flora, a bag of apples, bananas and oranges, drink 2 bottles of milk all within 48 hours! Never good. I have a feeling that now she’s taken the plunge once though, she’ll be a regular shopper with them now. Her back isn’t great these days and carrying carrier bags full of detergents does worry me. Not that you can really tell, I mean she decided to pull out the furniture the other day to do some cleaning, all by herself, she’s a one!!

Ah Christmas how I love thee!

I am well and truly in the Christmas spirit now too, Christmas films a plenty, Christmas songs and lots of food! I only wish Krispy Kreme did home delivery, that would be the ultimate…..although maybe not for my waistline! (Note to self: New Years Resolution must be to go walking for exercise!!)

 

Is it a bird, is it a plane, NO IT'S SUPER NIC!

 

I also got a lot of inspiration for my Christmas presents from Pinterest. Now I know I have linked to this site before but I LOVE IT! It’s a serious obsession and has been for a while now, I’ve made a couple of gifts for friends from it, hope they like them!
