gift guide: an engagement gift

So my bestie just got engaged. I cannot be more happy for my bean and her new fiance (that is such a weird sentence to say) and I am so sad that I am a different city to her so I cannot run up to her and give her a massive hug.

smoked haddock en papier

I am not one for cooking (more of a baker) but when I am forced to fend for myself, i.e when I am left alone for the evening and there is not enough money in the bank for a takeaway, I like to try something that is simple to make but is good to the taste.

this week #02

One of my favorite shows, a new buy from Topshop, I love this drink way too much, my face when in the car and my little sister is driving, some yummy hot chocolate with wifey and Roast and Conch Leeds, One of my favorite breakfast to have on a Sunday morning, new trousers from ASOS, running out of foundation and using the last of it by creating a BB cream (poor needs, poor musts) and an amazing vintage sweet shop.

simple skin care routine

I am so annoyed that my batteries have ran out on my camera. I have had to resort to my I Phone camera and it never seems to focus property.

Its my fault to be honest, I should really invest in rechargeable batteries. Its on my next things- to- get- when- I- go- into- town list (a long with a whole load of other boring stuff). I live such an interesting life sometimes....

Paris circa 1994.

A poser back then as I am now. And always thinking about food.

beauty buys

I have to admit I am not much a beauty person. It is only recently since I have been reading some of the popular beauty blogs (I Covet Thee is may favourite) that I have decided to play around and look into improving on my beauty regime.

how to pack for a weekend away like a mad woman

I pack like a a traveler on acid each and every time I go somewhere, even if its for a few days.

Even when I am just staying over at my girlfriend's house for a girly night out, I pack half of my house. Though I have an excuse then, I need A LOT of things to get glam!

a year in instagram

2013 was an amazing year for me. 

I got my first salary job working for a company I love. I moved to another city for the first time in my life and at the same time I moved in with a boy for the first time in my life (eek). I got my first ever pet who is my life and I have made some amazing new friends. 

Not too shabby me thinks for one year. I only got Instagram in October when I finally moved out of the stone ages and got an I phone. Believe me though when I say I have become addicted. To give you a glimpse into my year here are a few photos from my Instagram of what I have been up to and some of my favorite 2013 shots.

Don't forget you can follow me on Instagram but clicking on the icon in my side bar or by clicking here
