Snow good

It's my work Christmas party tonight.
I'd ordered a dress from ASOS the other day and was hoping it got delivered in time. So I was really pleased when I got home to a package last night (after a nightmare journey home -bloody snow!)

I opened it only to find they'd sent me the wrong bloody dress! NOT happy. I e-mailed them asking if they could send a replacement today on same day delivery but now it turns out my dress is out of stock. So now I'm wearing an old dress (an old dress I have only worn once, I admit!) to the party.


Why can't things just run properly?

The List

I've become a bit of a perv lately. I just seem to be obsessed with a few celebs.  I thought I'd share and try and explain some of the stranger ones. It's not your typical list, not the usual 'George Clooney, Brad Pitt'... oh no....


So my current obsession is Russell Howard. I'm not sure what it is about him, maybe it's his silly sense of humour. Up until recently I could never imagine him doing anything remotely sexy without saying something stupid like 'let me pleasure you with my mighty wizards wand of glory' but he gave a look the other day on his new show that was pure filth. I can totally imagine it now!
....Yea his eyes are a little too close together but I still would!





Next on my list is Jack Whitehall. He's not so much about the looks. His hair is a bit ridiculous (if he was mine I'd get that sorted out!) but again, I think it's the sense of humour. Who doesn't want a guy that can make them laugh?! And he's so well spoken, that really does it for me too. He's silly, but he has manners. He is only 21 though... I feel like a bit of a pervert.



Jame Marsden is next. I've mentioned him on my blog a few times. If you've seen 'Gossip' you'll see what I'm talking about. hmmm.... and he's older, so I'm less of a perv now. This is my favourite picture of him. How cute!


Now we all know about my love for Zac Efron. We have this poster up in the flat, framed! You can't deny he's a good looking guy, and he can dance! ... and yes, I feel slightly like a perv again, but he's 21 now. Even though we will always think of him in his HSM days. Hopefully his next film gets rid of that image. He looks particularly gorgeous in 17 again!



And then there's Robbie Williams. I've always loved him. There's something about him. I can imagine having great conversations with him (along with other things! *wink wink!*) I love the lyrics in his songs and say want you want about him, he's an entertainer! The confidence he has is amazing and I love that. 


-------------------------------------------------------------
So basically it seems I generally go for more than looks (good good, not as shallow as I thought!) and I like a cheeky chappy that can dance, can make me laugh and not take themselves too seriously....And the odd drug problem or being under age isn't a problem, apparently!

Yes, I am a Primark snob!

Now I've never been a massive Primark fan as it is. When I can be bothered I've braved it for the odd pair of socks or something for a fancy dress night, but I dont visit frequently, not if I can help it!
I imagine this is going to offend quite a few people. But I hate the place!
I get really disappointed if I see someone wearing something and they tell me it's from Primark. I know I won't have it as
(1) I can't bring myself to spend money on something I know will fall apart after one wash
and
(2) I hate going in there.
I had to go in there earlier to get some tights for the photoshoot, admittedly I could have gone to Topshop but knew I'd be spending much more, and as I won't be wearing bright pink tights again, it didn't seem to make sense to spend more than a pound on them! 
I've never been to the Marble arch Primark, but I won't be going back! It was crazy! And it was a mess! Soooo many people rummaging through sooo many clothes, the whole place smelling of plastic, everything on wrong hangers (not that the sizes are right anyway!) ugh, it was not an enjoyable experience.
The other day someone at work was wearing some blue boots, she said they were from Primark so I thought I'd have look, I had to make joining the HUGE que worth while! I was close to buying them but after carrying them around I felt how cheap they felt, it just didn't do it for me! I figured if I spent another £30 they would last much longer.
I know people are saving the pennies these days but I say, go without for a while, save a bit and buy something decent! It will be so much more worth it in the end!

puss in boots

So I bought these bootbeauties the other day.




My lovely suede thigh high boots
These ...


...are also on my list but decided to go with the boots purely based on for value for money
ie -more material for the price.
But the blue suede shoes...


'uh-huh-huh...'

...shall be mine soon.



I call them my hooker boots, though I have to make sure I don't make them look too hooker-y. Basically no wearing them with red plastic mini skirts!!
(I'm sure I can manage that!)

I wore them to work the other day with my american apparel leggings and a long cardigan. If anything can make an outfit innocent, it's a cardigan! I've got my jumper dress and tights planned to wear with it too. I've got to experiment really. I'm sure I can work it out,
Though any ideas are welcome!



I ♥ them

temptation

Having a clear out has just made me want to buy more.
Out with the old, in with the new as they say...
(who's they..?)
When I have pointless days off I spend them browsing clothes on the net, this makes me want to go out and try them all on! There are several dresses I want, I could literally spend my whole pay cheque in Topshop at the mo! And as I only seem to let myself buy black stuff to wear for work, I now think 'wow, I need some colour!' So I'm full of excuses really! Seems I've spent the last few weeks looking and cushions and lamp shades, now it's time to make that dresses and shoes! and it's 3 for 2 on all make up in Boots too! That reminds me, I need to go through and throw out a load of old make up.
ooohhh

Written in the stars?

So there's a promotion going at work, basically if any of us want to go for it we can. I've been umming and ahhing over it for the last few days. It would be a huge difference, moving further away from the rest of the girls but with more responsibility. They're interviewing next week so I have to think fast.
I couldn't decide what to do and I was going over and over it in my head. So yesterday on the tube home, with the London Paper on my lap I decided to look at my star signs. Now I haven't paid attention to my stars since I was little but I thought 'what the hell'


This is what it said:

Think carefully on that big change you've been considering -and specifically, think on weather its the right big change for you. you might feel as if your life needs an overhaul -so overhaul it, by all means. Just don't fall into the trap of taking the first road out of town that you pass by..."

hmmm....

Make up, make up

I went on a little shopping trip today, my shoulder's starting to feel better and really needed to get out of the house.



I needed some more hair rollers, I there were the biggest I could find but they'll do for now. I need some volume! I got a new foundation brush and this really cute little eye cream/glitter (Jewel eye pot by MEMEME no.2 -for those interested!) that I really don't need but I thought it was fabulous! It has the creme on the top and at the bottom has a section with matching glitter. I'm sure I'll end up having every colour.

There were a few things by GOSH but I couldn't bring myself to buy any as they weren't on 3 for 2! Cheap, I know but that offer is on so often it seems like I'm being short changed!

I've also finally found the purple eye colour I've been looking for for so long. Nothing else has seemed bright enough, but Barry M have just bought out this limited edition gem!



And the best result was when I got out of the shop and checked the receipt I saw that the guy forgot to scan the dazzle dust! So it was free! woooo! I'd feel guilty but it was his fault, not mine -he was chatting to his mate the whole time! That'll teach him to give better customer service!

Mummy Dearest...

My Dad's booked a week off this week and as Mum was around too he wanted to go do something with their day. I swear Mum would happily be chained to the kitchen sink forever, she only seems to live for housework. She hardly ever goes out, she's either at the neighbours or has her friends round here for 'girls nights' rather than socialising elsewhere.



Dad's forever trying to get her to do something slightly interesting. But she is the queen of excuses! She's been using my youngest brother as an excuse for years, but he's 15 now and it's not working as well as it used to.

My Dad said to her:

"Let's go shopping, I'll buy you what ever you like but as long as its for you, not for the house or the kids"

and you know what she replied...?!


"no, it's too hot"

?!?!?!


My Dad ignored the cries of
'take me take MEEEEE!'as I leaped about behind him.


What is wrong with the woman?

I swear we're not really related!

Love/Hate


Loving...
Ambre Solaire Fake Tan for the face - I don't like sun on my face, I am all about SPF50 face creams. After wearing a hat most of the time in Mexico my face is much lighter than the rest of me, so this baby is working a treat to even things out a bit!

Dairy Milk with Crunchie bits -I'd forgotten how more-ish it was! The BEST chocolate. 

Going back to work after holiday -As much as I miss the Mexican sunshine, I'm loving the big squeals of excitement and hugs from everyone! I love the attention! and it's nice to know I was missed!

Jiving -Jive classes have been so fun, it's been great getting the dancing shoes on. I'm getting rather good at it now! 

Life planning -some exciting things ahead!

My Mum -not only did she re-decorate and de-clutter my room while I was away, she kept a load of tacky mags for me so I can catch up on the celeb world! ♥ Trooper!



Hating...
(hate's a strong word, more like disliking)

The Wind -it looked nice outside today but that wind is COLD!

and

Men with their tops off when the slightest hint of sun comes out - I'm all for the body confidence, but I don't want to see it... plus I'm jealous I can't do the same!

Well I never

I know it's been a while, I got back from holiday on Monday and have been non-stop since. I shall update about the holiday soon.

But in the mean time, check these babies out...



Usually at festivals I don't bother with wellies, firstly they don't have a heel and I just feel stupid in them! So I generally opt for an old pair of 4" heeled, knee high boots -Now you may say it's not practical but the heels stick in the mud which ensures no slipping over! Don't knock it till you try it!

For years I've said they should do wellies with a heel, and now they do... if only they were that little bit higher...

Packing...

I'm in the middle of packing for Mexico, well I say packing, it's more like throwing a load of stuf onto my bed, then getting distracted and trying stuff on! I'm alarmed at how many things I have still with the tags on!
I've got loads of lists written up, and I've sorted out what nail polish to take with me, I've narrowed it down to 7. -is 7 too many? Two of which I got from work, we give them away when clients recommend friends for a shoot. They're pretty good and there's some great neon colours. They're by BYS. We have eye shadows and shimmer pencils by them too, and lip glosses. I haven't tried the shadows but the gloss is good, and the shimmer is ok but does end up smudging quite a bit. I can't work out how you'd buy them online but the easy way is to come to my studio and recommend some friends (but only when I'm there, we get commission for that!) -yea, shameless plug there, I know! I'm working tomorrow so I really do need to get the majority of this packing done tonight. It's not helping that I'm getting tempted by the next day delivery at ASOS.

Oh I need to stop!

So, Britney...


She was amazing.
Yea, yea, yea she mimed... but to be honest you just don't care cos the show is that great! You don't go to see Britney because of her voice anyway, she's a performer.

We had awesome seats, row 1! Right at the front of the barrier. So we got some great pictures. Mainly of her sexy legs and bum! Everything tied in with the circus theme, there was a circus act before she went on stage and there were rides outside the O2.

I didn't see too many people dressed up, there was one girl we saw dressed in a ringmasters costume -after several jugs of cocktails we just had to have our picture taken with her! We literally ran up to the poor girl going "omgodyoulookamazinglet'shaveapicture!"
My friend Bradley was treating me to lots of cocktails and pizza, even before the concert it was so much fun. Was a really really good night!

Our original plan was to dress as different Britneys but we never got round to organising it. It was ok, we bought Britney top hats when we were there! And we were covered in glitter - especially when I got the button stuck down and was just stood there screeching trying to get it to stop! haha! good times!




Sidenote - How cute are these Alexander McQueen shoes?!

I'm counting down the days to my Mexico holiday and trying to not buy shoes... seriously, I've found more that I want! I just can't stop!

Tuesday, 2 June 2009

Lately...

I....

Feel like I still need some more shoes,

Still haven't found a plain white dress,

Love love love this weather!

have seen far too many people in (F)Ugg boots!

Am really looking forward to my holiday to Mexico!

Keep googling things about my holiday, fuelling the excitement,

Am finding Calvin Harris more attractive, but I think it's down to his twitter updates...

Still need to do more holiday shopping...

Can't find the perfect suncream that smells nice,

Can't help thinking that 4 books for 2 weeks isn't enough...

Need to spend my £55 of boots points,

Am planning a lot of bbqs and picnics this summer!

am getting lazy at blog writing!

Bank holiday Funday

What a bank holiday weekend it was.

Went to see Girls Aloud at the O2 on Saturday night.
I was pretty hungover after going out for drinks with work and waking up on my mates rooftop at 8.30am! -don't ask.
I can tell you it's a pretty weird sensation being woken up by direct sunlight on your face!

I was shattered and in dire need of some caffeine. We went out for lunch when I got home, I was craving a burger or something equally greasy and bad for me. It did the trick, though we decided a Frappachino was also needed -but why do they feel the need to put on the air con so high?!! It was freezing!
Throughout the day I was feeling more and more tired, but I soldiered through, getting myself a big coke at the concert to get me through the night.

We dressed up as gift wrapped kitty-cats ('...we're only turning into tigers when we wanna fight back....' geddit?) and I must say we looked pretty awesome!  Girls Aloud were amazing, we had great seats and they even sang live, which I was shocked at. And the way they dance in their heels is a talent in itself! They also have amazing bodies!




So all in all a good weekend -drinks, eats, great sleeps, girls aloud, frapachinos, friends, and sunshine =lovely

HELP!

OK, so I've started the holiday shopping as they've started letting people back into Mexico again -thank God! Just over a month to go now and I have nothing!

I thought this would be easy but I really want one of these to take with me...



*ignore the weird expression on the models face

It would be perfect as it's so versatile, I can wear it in the day and dress it up in the evening. And of course it would look great with tanned legs and wedges (what doesn't?!)

But I can't find one anywhere! I'm sure at one point they were everywhere! This pic is from a site in the US so if anyone knows where one is in the UK, let me know!

17 Again

So we went along to see Zac Efron take his top off 17 Again -Guys, they cut the bit from the advert out of the film! (Though the film does start with him playing basketball topless, which is nice.)


I personally loved it, He's a very good looking boy man and it's just a light-hearted, feel good film. Leslie Mann is great and Matthew Perry too, a fantastic cast, if you ask me. 
The most ridiculous part of the film is the fact that someone as beautiful as Zac Efron would grow up and turn into a chubby Matthew Perry! Sorry Chandler Bing, I love you but it's just not realistic.

The end credits has pics of them when they were at school, which for Zac was like...a year ago?! Everyone did go 'awwww' though! And he hasn't hung up his tap shoes just yet, they threw in a little dance routine at the beginning! 

After the film I began to wonder (yes I've been watching sex and the city again!)


Would I actually like to be 17 again...?

I could have told myself to not dye my hair and straighten it so much as it will never grow, to put the fake tan down! -Orange is never a good look!
 I could make sure I didn't bother with certain guys because there are much nicer guys out there. 
And make sure I knew that all the good friends are the one's that stick through all the bad stuf, and not to worry about the rest.

Though it would mean...
-Going through all those games with guys, do they like me? Why hasn't he replied?
-Drinking too much,
-Not sleeping enough.
-Going through heartbreak (that wasn't really heartbreak at all!)
-Hanging round with people I didn't even like.

I don't think I'd want to. Na, I'd prefer to stay as I am. And I wouldn't have met some of the amazing people that I know now!

Life is a lesson after all.

Shoe rant

I have nothing to blog about, and when this is the case, I turn to shoes.

I have spent a fortune on shoes in the last week, but they are all lovely -of course! And I got some bargains! I got French Connection boots that were £170 for £57 -I almost cried! Good times!

There are some ugly shoes about though, I noticed this today while shopping in Kingston. So many horrible granny-like shoes that look like they're out of the Ladybird section at Woolworths -And all these pointless heels! I know I love my high heels but if its less than 2inches, don't bother! But at least gladiator sandals are being given heels now. THAT I can get on board with!


I know all this nautical stuff is in, but does there really need to be so much rope effect stuf (no, I don't know the name) and canvas used in them?
A lot of the platforms are annoying too, the heel isn't big enough for the platform so the shoe just looks long!

...and don't get me started on brogues and loafers!
At least now that summer's coming people will get rid of those Fuggs now!

OK, I'm done. Rant over

Tuesday, 3 March 2009

New from ASOS...

Well isn't this just lovely....?


Who would pay £16 for a purse like that? It looks like something a kid makes at school!

Thursday, 29 January 2009

Ummm...

Who's been trying to hack into my blog??

I've just had an e-mail reminding me of my details! and it says at the end 'if you have any further questions'

.....umm? why? Everything's on there! There's nothing else to find out!
