Hitting blog milestones 

So this weekend I hit a huge blogging milestone – 10,000 page views!  Little did I know 5 years ago when I started blogging as a place to showcase my writing skills to perspective job interviews, I would still be here 5 years later. I’ve been offered some fantastic opportunities through my blog and I…

The measure of success

Success. Such a small word yet measured on such a massive scale. We, as people, spend so much time benchmarking our worth against other – friends, family, work colleagues, yet we take little time to stop and appreciate ourselves.  Now is the time.    One person’s measure of doing well may be a house,…

On a Sunday afternoon….

Lazy Sundays are the best and with 2013 treating us to a proper summer in July, weekends spent in the sun with your favourites just seem that little bit sweeter. And today was one of those. A little relaxing in the garden started the day and then the afternoon kicked off with a visit to…

Glastonbury 2013- Another year at Worthy Farm!

Glastonbury is over for another year and I have returned a broken woman. The weather was truly amazing. After becoming a little obsessed with BBC Weather prior to the festival, the sun did indeed shine and it made for a fantastic 5 days. Highlights included Dizzee Rascal, Mumford and Sons, Chase and Status and Ben…

Broadchurch- Review

Broadchurch. The ITV drama that took us all by storm and became unmisssablee television and the one show I’ve been obsessed with over the past 8 weeks. It’s at this point I must advise if you haven’t watched the series and wouldn’t like to be told who dun it, then stop reading now. From the casting,…

Hairspiration

So, I know I have covered my on-going battle to find my dream hair colour on here before, but I haven’t spoken about it for a while. My natural colour is a strawberry blonde (trust me this IS a real colour), however I first started dying my hair red back in 2008 and I got hooked….

My week in pictures

This post does basically what it says on the tin- my week in pictures! 1. The Killers at Manchester Arena. I’ve never seen them live before, but wow, deof worth the wait! 2.  More Magazine and Mini Eggs- need I say more? 3  + 4. Temple tube station on my way to Somerset House for…

Bits and Bobs

So, I haven’t blogged about the goings on in my life for a while- apologies but here I am. I’m currently off work for a week so I’m looking forward to a much needed breather and my week is kicking off with The Killers at the MEN tonight, which I’m tres looking forward to! The…

An ode to Ella Henderson….

So, I have kinda lost my blogging mojo over the past few days, so whilst you excuse me and I look for it and I have mostly been watching Ella Henderson vids on Youtube and waiting for her album to release so I can warble along! I will be back with you soon, but until…

My Stationary Fix

I can’t believe its the end of January 13 already. This month has kinda dragged but kinda flown for me, an odd one but quite a good month all in all. However, that’s not what I’m here to talk about on this fine Thursday eve. I have something to get off my chest. I heart…

Blogger Cliche: Snow

Well, 7 days later and the snow continues. With a second snowfall yesterday evening and a white coating covering everything in sight, and yet a lovely sunny day I thought I would take the opportunity to share a couple of snaps I took on my way home last night and then earlier this morning.

Coats for every occasion

I  just don’t know about you but I just can’t believe how cold it has been recently  and with the entire country enjoying the snow, you just know at this time of year, the only accessory you’ve got to rely on is a fantastic coat.  Whether you’ve got curves to kill for or a gorgeous…

Hangover Cures

So, we are 6 days into the New Year, every magazine tv ad and Facebook status is screaming ‘new year new me’. Can we just give it up already? The only way to a new you is by making a change, good or bad, and sticking to it. There is zero need for the song and…

Yearly Round-Up

I don’t know about you guys but I can’t believe Christmas is over and the New Year is right around the corner. The build-up seemed to last for such a long time this year, with the shops starting super-early and the decorations going up at the start of the month and then the 25th passed…

All hail Emma Stone

And this is why I love Emma Stone. Oh and the fact that she was the girl who delivered that imortal line to Ryan Gosling ‘Are you photshopped?!’  Girl crush maaaajor!
