October & November Catch Up

That’s right I’ve been a crap blogger lately – only 1 post in November. Oops! Wish I could say I have a valid reason but I don’t.

Here’s what’s been keeping me distracted:

Having fun with Yvonne in our onesies! Long gone are the days when we’d be drinking all day and night, now it’s all about cheesy movies, cosy PJs and mulled cider.

013

Drunken selfie after a night at the Hibs Club for a 40th. As usual I was crap and forgot to take an outfit shot.

Treating myself to a Clinique Chubby Stick – review to come soon.

002

Getting my nails Shellac’d – really like the grey with glitter on top. I’m rubbish with nails so even my Shellac doesn’t last as long as it should do 😦

Buying this adorable owl necklace from Persun Mall

Ate THE most delicious desserts from Madeleine’s Patisserie in Stockbridge. Yvonne, Jade and I almost wept over how good these were!

I’ve also been buying some well needed knitwear including a super cute Henry Holland polka dot number which I’ll post about soon.

Sure there’s plenty more I’ve been occupied with but just can’t remember at the moment

August Round-Up

It’s been quiet on the blog front lately but that’s because I’ve been a busy little bee this past month with seeing a few shows at the Edinburgh fringe and still trying to get used to working 2 jobs. Enough of the excuses though – on to photos of my life from August:

Yay! I FINALLY managed to get my hands on the Clinique Super City Block. Had been trying to track it down for months but it was sold out everywhere. Eventually managed to buy it from Debenhams during one of their sale days so only spent £17.30 on it 🙂

As someone who has ridiculously pale skin (i may have mentioned before I have the skin of a ginger but not the hair colour) the SPF 40 means I can wear my sunglasses without running the risk of getting panda eyes which I inevitably do every year.

LOVE this photo of me and the bestest. A catch up in the pub, she called my outfit – black and white printed H&M trousers, black Johnny Cash t-shirt and vintage black bowler hat – “interesting” which meant she hated it however I don’t care, I like that outfit. Only a true friend can say shit like that to you without causing offense!

001

Hotel Chocolat Mojito truffles – possibly the tastiest thing I’ve ever eaten. There is a Hotel Chocolat not far from my work but I have resisted going in very often due to the ever-expanding waistline issue.

Such an attractive face to make

Sick of my hair colour and fancying a change I opted to go blonde however my hair is a pain in the arse to colour and I ended up with bright orange roots – such a good look. My hair dresser then buggered off on holiday (jammy cow) and I had to resort to half a tin of dry shampoo each day just to lighten it. It has since been fixed.

There is mixed opinions on my new colour. One of the most bizarre comments has been that I look like a “chubby version of Helen Flanagan” needless to say I wasn’t overly pleased about the chubby part but was more upset about the Helen Flanagan part! Yes I can be ditzy but I sincerely hope I don’t come across as brain-dead as she did on I’m A Celeb.

I just don’t see it! What’s more disturbing is that people in the pub I work in are now calling me Helen. Perhaps it is time to go a bit darker again although I think my hairdresser may kill me considering it took about 8 hours in all to get my hair all the one (non orange) shade.

I had a brilliant and rather drunken night out in a gay club with a couple of friends recently where I danced my socks off and ended up with a bit of a fan club! Rubbish photos but fantastic night out. I went straight from work so wearing a basic black New Look dress, my snake skin Guess heels and zebra print Julien Macdonald clutch bag. During August most pubs and clubs in Edinburgh have a late licence due to the Fringe festival. It seemed like such a good idea to go out until 5a,m however my hangover when working in the pub the next again day reminded me I am an actual idiot sometimes!

Festival wise I was lucky enough to see both Chris Ramsey and Jason Byrne, was in stitches at the Chris Ramsey show. Also went on our annual excursion to see The Ladyboys Of Bangkok with several family members, we never fail to have a great time. I spent most of the show deliberating which body parts I wanted from each of the cast members. Bad times when you are jealous of a man’s body! And slightly disturbing how much I coveted alot of the costumes.

Insane face with the momma. She’s sick of the sight of me wearing that hat.

027

There’s a reason for this. I just can’t remember why. Standard behaviour for our nights out.

022

My partner in crime, Ashley, and I decided to drink bottles of Prosecco all night, luckily there was no hangovers in the morning.

I’m sure there’s been much more happened but as I have the attention span of a goldfish…….
