Recent stuff


I accidentally went AWOL!  I don't want to sit and apologise for it (we all know bloggers have lives away from the keyboard!) but I will say it's been a busy week, and give you a little update sort of post.

Firstly, it was my birthday!  Ed took me down to Brighton for a day of shopping and it was so nice to be out and about in the sunshine for a change.  Then there was a night out with my oldest friends....I don't normally drink, so waking up on Sunday was a shock to the system!  After I managed to drag my behind out of bed and make myself look more presentable, I headed to the shops again with Mum and my sister.  A quick burger at Ed's Diner and I was on my way to feeling much more human!  Oh, and the Dior purchase I made certainly perked me up a bit ;)  If you fancy seeing the fashiony bits I was bought/bought myself then I've filmed a video on my YouTube channel.  Things went a bit wrong, so the make up version will be up next week!

So that was last weekend, and sort of explains why I didn't post on Sunday.  Not only that, since I've put my Diary of a Spendaholic posts aside for the foreseeable future, I'm kind of at a loss as to what to write on a Sunday.  Any suggestions?

Besides that, how a person blogs is a common topic of conversation on twitter in the various chats that go on.  Personally, I like to take photos and write at the weekends to create a stockpile of posts to go live throughout the week.  There's no way I'd have time to do it all in the evenings after work, but it does mean that when the bank of draft posts runs dry I come a little unstuck.  That happened this week, so Friday's post was missing.  It felt really bizarre to know that there wasn't anything to publish, and already I feel like my blog looks a little outdated! 

If you follow me on Twitter or Tumblr (you really should!), you may have noticed that I'm debating getting a haircut and have been throwing some inspiration around.  I love the wavy bob style, but I'm just worried I'll regret chopping my hair off on days when I can't be bothered to style it and just look like I have a plain bob!  Plus, the last time I cut my hair short I was 5st heavier and looked like a peahead.  Deep down I know this won't really happen again, but I'm still scared there are peahead-tendancies which may come out!  I'm really leaning towards this....what do you think?  At the moment my hair's looking like this (if you click the link you'll also be able to see a post I wrote for the local newspaper that went up this week), so it'd be quite a change.  I'd also love to know any product recommendations you have to get that textured, wavy look!

And then today has been spent outside in the intermittent sunshine enjoying a family meal for my birthday.  Enchiladas, fajitas, carrot cake, foam bananas and baby Ella in her princess tutu.  Perfect!

How was your week?


  1. I know what you mean about your blog running dry when you havent got any scheduled posts! This is me at the moment - but I dont have a laptop so thats my excuse! Its broken! :-(

    You could always do a round up of your week on a sunday or do something similar to what I do and recommend some blogs/youtubers?

    1. That's a good reason though!

      Yeah I'm thinking of a weekly round up....I'm also going to try really hard not to spend unnecessary amounts of money, so I could always revamp the Diary posts and instead of focusing on what I've spent on things I shouldn't have, I might focus it on the things I've done on minimal money! x

  2. I keep finding my blog runs a bit dry sometimes, but sometimes it's good to take a bit of a break!

    1. Definitely good to get your mojo back! x
