sample sale time


In about three hours this is going to be me, because its my company's sample sale this weekend! About 4- 6 times a year our warehouse will be open to us just to grab anything that we want at a cheap price. Today is the preview and because I am doing the late shift it means I can browse at my pleasure.

bring it on monday

Just like Miss Hepburn, I have woken up this morning thinking 'gurrr! Its Monday.' After stumbling around the bathroom trying to look semi presentable, I had a sudden realisation....

It's Pay Day this Friday!!

And then I started to plan what I was going to spend my hard earned pennies on.....

Hope this help you readers get through the rest of the week.

this week #03

Batiste= Sunday hair savior, the boys being boys, a treat from my boyfriend's work, freshly blow dried hair looking particular fine, excited for our London trip, addiction to eggs is increasing, reliving my trip to America with traditional Root Beer, my skin's been craving some nourishing this week, pretty flowers that will hopefully bring Spring early.

My first school photograph. Circa 1994.

It's the bow that makes the image right? 

And the cheeky grin. Happy childhood memories.

The first baking recipe I ever learnt. 

It was in food tech and our teacher thought no one could bugger this up.

Then she met me.

hemingways day out

Hello! Hemingway here! So as you may have gathered by now, I am the brains behind this blog. I mean, how else is my mummy meant to know which are my favorite items in her wardrobe if I do not attempt to attack them out of delight?! In fact I am getting her to type my post out now as unfortunately I am unable to use a laptop (I mean a mouse if for chasing not clicking!)

spring to do list


For me Spring begins in February. 

Something about how fresh this month feels (January is always a write off) that this is where the new year really begins for me. To celebrate this month, I have decided to publish my Spring to do list.

super bowl sunday

I love American Football. I hate to say it, but I love it more than our English football (que any male readers I had refusing to read my blog anymore...)

For me I feel some of our English players whine too much and it feels like anytime I watch a game, someone gets tapped on the shoulder and claims that their leg is now broken. Now I know what you are going to say, its not all English players and your right there are many great players (lets not forget my all time crush for David Beckham...) but American Football is more action pack and there always such a good vibe around the game. 

I feel like my boyfriend is not going to speak to me after reading this post. 

Now today is Super Bowl Sunday. I know that everyone in the US is going to be buzzing about today and it will be the same here, though unfortunately I will not be able to watch the whole game. Yes I have work tomorrow and due to the time difference, The game is shown here from 10.30pm till 6.30 pm. Last year I pulled an all nighter and went to work the next day. It was not a good day for me. 

I am still deciding who to support this year, I am a New York Giants/ Chicago Bears supporter, but my boyfriend and I get into the Super Bowl together, ever since we have got together. I may need your help on this- am I to be a Broncos fan or a Seahawks supporter?

In honour of the game, my boyfriend and I go for an American theme evening. I have some pretzels ready and my man is going to give making some sliders a go. Also popcorn! Got to have some popcorn! One of my favorite blogs Cupcakes and Cashmere has some great Super Bowl themed foods blog post here and here, for anyone that is thinking of having a party. If you have any Super Bowl ideas for food or games to play (yes there will be a drinking game planned for tonight!) please let me know and good luck to each team- give me a game to make me wanna not go to bed so I end up being extremely tired for work (I have a slight feeling this will happen...)
