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 roof 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! It was quite entertaining to see how many of the girls had gone for the Let's-dress-up-as-Cheryl-even-though-we're-don't-look-nearly-as-good-as-her look. 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

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!

Come the F*ck on, Bridget!

So apparently they're making a Bridget Jones musical! (according to Heatworld) I'm not quite sure how this will work but I can say I'm pretty excited by it! -I still need to see Dirty Dancing first!

I fancied a little retail therapy today, basically to make myself feel better after all this crap with tweedle dumb and tweedle prick.

It was also because I had a big clear-out of a load of clothes this morning after breaking the front panel off a drawer as it had so much stuff in it! -I blame cheap furniture personally, not excessive purchasing -but whatever.

After throwing so much stuff out I realised there was so much more room, room that needed to be filled (girl logic I know) Turns out I didn't get much on the clothes front, I wanted another suit jacket (I have loads but they just never seem right for the occasions I want to wear them) but typically whenever you have something in mind, you can never find it.
I did by a strapless top for my holiday, and a coral set of undies -loving coral right now! While in the changing room I could hear these girls trying on bras, they are so mean to each other! One was like "wow, you are so flat, you need more pads" the other girls said "it has pads!" and another went "well it needs more" bitches! They were only about 12! Another one was obviously prancing around in hers as there were gasps of "they look massive" and "you look so so sexy now" the girl was lapping it up. Wierd.

Anyway, back to me.
After not having much luck on the clothes front I got this and a bracelet with an anchor on it. I'm not much of a jewellery person really but thought they were cute. And I got this as it was in the sale. I also got that lipstick by loreal that 'feels like a lip balm but looks like a gloss'. It was on offer in Boots so I couldn't say no. Dunno about looks like a gloss, it looks nice though!
I ended up with a multi coloured hand after trying to find another of the Barry M dazzle dusts I wanted (and didn't have already) as they were on 3 for £10 as always. I ended up just getting the one, (a gold and black one) I ran out of hand space and I was looking like it had been shut in a door!

I also got a couple of chic-lit books to read on holiday, but knowing me I'll finish them before I go!

All in all, a succesfull trip! Toodles!

This stuff...

I smell like a cocktail!
*but, y'no, in a good way!


I do actually enjoy the commute to work most days, it's a time to just be on my own and wind down... providing I get a seat, and not only a seat, but one that's not shared by any of the following - a fidget, a smelly person, someone who needs more than their share of the seat, someone with really loud music, someone you rustles their London Lite more than they need to, folding it over and over again, making it crinkle and crinkle away! AHHH!... ok ok, maybe there are times where I really do not enjoy the commute!

Couple's kissing is one of the worst things to be around. It's really not a nice sound. It's even worse when they're old, or old and whispering suggestive comments in each others ears-heave! There are some couples who feel the need to be touching their partner constantly, hugging, touching their bum, even just hanging on to their pocket. I'm in a relationship and I find it annoying, I can't imagine how irritating it is to single people!

There's also that horrible moment on the tube when you're sat down and a larger lady is stood near you. It's the age-old dilemma of 'do I offer my seat and risk being slapped in the face?' pregnant or fat, pregnant or fat...? It's ok for men, they can do it and just seem gentlemanly.

Though I have seen some women wearing these, which does help.

People putting their make up on whilst on the train is absolutely fascinating! I'm not even sure why, maybe it's because you don't get to see these things normally. And I always secretly hope they slip with the liquid eyeliner (It's mean but it's a risky game they're playing anyway!) I always try to not look but I just can't help watching! Some people just keep on applying, you can see them piling it on and you're sat there thinking 'Stop it! stop it! you should have stopped 3 applications of blusher ago!' It's a good idea though, gives you longer in bed I guess, and it's not like you do much else on the train.
One thing I just don't get is the trainers. I understand some people can't walk in their work shoes so they'll opt for trainers for the commute. But why are they always the most ugly trainers you've ever seen?! Big white bulky things, and always worn with tights! No no NO! We all know I'm not exactly a lover of shoes without a heel but wouldn't some ballet pumps do the same job and look much less offensive?!
...Oh I could go on, but maybe I'll save it for another blog!
