Happy New Year!

 Well technically Eve. But hey! New year, new start and all that! I am very much looking forward to 2011, it seems like it will be a fantastic year; just as 2010 has been towards the end.
I haven't got any resolutions as I will just break them...probably in the first few days. Which in turn will just depress me that I cannot stick to a few rules!

(Purple velvet&leather dress, Browns Fashion. The History of Whoo Cream, White gold bow flats, Vivienne Westwood.)

I hope everyone has a fantastic start to 2011. All the best! xx

Because, I like you.

Here is another tip! Well not really a tip but it's me tidying and sorting my room and being mega impressed that I'm actually serious about it this time! Most of my time on this earth will be me living in a flux in which I live in the moment and I hate tidying. Pointless exercise however I do understand that every once in a while it does need to happen!

So here goes! (Adverty Style-e)
Are you, like me, trying to find a home for all your brooches?! Well this is your lucky day!
I used to keep all my brooches in my chicken mug but since my lovely red bow hair clip died I have resurrected it so that all my brooches are organised! 
 Just attach brooches! It's amazing how much thought went into this.
It just keeps all my brooches together. My special brooches I do keep in a jewelry box though. I love brooches as I tend to pick them up from places I visit or they are gifts from special people.
Even though I have organised my brooches, I still keep them in the chicken mug. I mean how can you not love it?! xx

Change in the ranks.

Well change to the blog. I am terrible at keeping to the same and I constantly like to tweek little bits but I feel as the new year is coming so should a new layout! Hopefully it will go to plan! Wish me luck!
Hope it won't be too messy.

"Skiing is a dance, and the mountain always leads." - Author Unknown

I've decided that I want to go away, like I've mentioned before, to explore everything. I really would like to go to Austria so I can ski/snow board. Well I can attempt to anyway! But as you will all know by now I get cold WAYYY too easily so will need quite a few layers!

Beet tankard, Ikea. Fondue Set, John Lewis. Sno Black Snowflake Pom Pom Trapper Hat, Topshop. Lapin earmuff, Emilio Pucci.)

While browsing online I have came accross so many lovely weekend bags, yes I'm aware to go skiing I will need a bag ever so slightly bigger...However, I do feel I will need a new weekend bag this year. xx

I'll let you into a little secret...

Just because I like you.
Well, it's more of a tip than a secret but saying secret created an air of tension and illusion! Oooh.
         I have well too many earrings, like WAYYYY too many. I will buy new pairs just becasuse "they're nice!". I panicked when I realised storing all these earrings in a pot was not the best idea so I went on a hunt for a better idea and came up with this!
       While on the hunt, I found this pretty bird feeder which was only a few pounds and I've now piled it up with earrings! Good, no? :)

Enjoy my tip! xx

Boxing Day!

Christmas has been nice, a little hectic but nice!
Now it's time to wallow in my presents and enjoy the company of family and friends!
Instead of explaining what I got up to, here are some photos!

My local area. Mum&I had a little walk through the snow on Christmas day with my little pooch.
I have recieved some gorgeous gifts, my favourite being this lovely Hummingbird brooch and this lovely little suitcases. I really need to sort out my room so these boxes could really help.
Christmas has been fun :). Hope everyone had a good time! xx

Christmas Eve!

It is one day until Christmas and I am being a complete grinch because of the snow. I know it cannot be helped and what not but I have never been a lover and with all my parcels and general life being put on hold, I don't appreciate!
I am looking forward to a few quiet days. Quiet and healthy, as I have been pigging out so much lately but I'm putting it down to hibernation weight, ho hum.
Even though its only Christmas Eve, I have been lucky enough to recieve a few goodies!

I am also fortunate to have a new phone, as mine was dying a death, and look how pretty the case is! Now that is what I call a proper cover! (Cover, Ebay)Some new plasters, as I damage myself more than most! This little perfume is lovely and at a mere £2.99, a complete bargain! I love carrying a perfume around with me in my bag but hate carrying anything expensive as I tend to lose everything this is the perfect solution! (Circus plasters, gift. Perfume, H&M) A buddha statue and some lovely new candes! I love having candles and oils burning. (Candles, Ikea. Buddha, Durham Christmas Market) Some gorgeous bangles! Which don't fall off my child-like wrists. I don't think anyone will fully understand this achievement. Oh Well. (Bangles, Asda)

Anyway, I'm off to get ready to see the boy and eat too much, ommmm nommmm. Hope everyone else has an equally lovely Christmas Eve! xx

"I will honor Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year." - Charles Dickens

I am afraid to say it but, I really am a bit of a Grinch. It is probably because as a whole, my family isn't exactly close and we don't all meet up for a big meal. Which I'm kinda thankful for, as I hate huge shindigs. I hate big groups of people-even when it is family.
Saying all this however this year, I am feeling slightly more festive. Not tremendously but I would say my heart has grown at least one size! Soooooo, to get myself even more in the mood, I have a big pile of Christmas-sy DVDs to watch and overindulge in festive foods!
Now, I'm going to overload you with Christmas photos so that you can be just as festive!

 (All photos from
P.S- like my new festive wallpaper?! Ohhh yes, I'm going all out! xx

I have already written about the new film Burlesque (you can read it HERE!) and I am still waiting to see it! This displeases me as, I neeeeeed to see it!
(feather eye mask, tkmaxx. burlesque inspired make-up, smashbox. beaded necklace, black satin corset top & black/white bordello shoes

I have and always will love Christina Aguilera. Hell, I love her so much after seeing her in chaps, I nearly bought a pair! Yes, her new album was actually disgraceful and may have made me weep for her talent to come back to her; I do feel this could be her redeeming factor! Corsets, feathers, songs and dancing routines (which I will learn) is what I'm talking about! Ohhhh and I have never wanted a pair of shoes as much as I want these-slight exaggeration but I'm well too excited! xx

"Then we would go home and work on a castle of our own." - Tides of Man.

 My life is pretty good at the minute...minus the HUGE amount of work I have had to do. However it is my fault that I left it to the last minute....kinda.
When I haven't been doing work I have adopted a side of a bed and even left items in two houses so I need to g back! I have decided I love being in town, I love being so close to everyone and everything!

So close in fact that in the past 10 ten days I have been to the tattooist 3 times. 3 times?! you may say! How hardcore I do sound and I wish I could say it was all for me but alas, not even one time was for me! Humf. It will be soon however!
The sound of the gun freaks me out a bit but I love the people who I went with so its'all good! Two sessions have been with Kate and her rose tattoo which goes up her ribs (photo to the left, not finished by the way) and once with someone else.

Anyway from being there too many times with other people and not enough for me it had pushed me into getting a bigger tattoo. At the minute I am sporting a little heart tattoo on my wrist which is 'super cute' well thats what the tattooist said today, so I'm sticking with that!

Here are some of the subjects I'm interested in!
Gerbera Umbrella, 
Peacock print,
Cherry Blossom candle holder, Fenwicks. 
Hummingbird Bangle,  
Koi leather phone pouch,

Christmas Wish List.

This year may be the first year, in like forever, that I don't have a definite want list for Christmas!
It's really odd and I cannot even think of one thing that I need. Mainly because I have everything I want and need! However there is still some items I wouldn't mind people, pay attention! (This actually has taken me weeks as I had no idea what to include!)
(Babushka Ear Buds, Ticket Stub collection book, TKMaxx, Snowman socks, Topshop. Anna Sui perfume, various. Toms shoes, Toms.)

I'm really into the idea of travelling at the moment. I want to go to places you wouldn't normally. Maybe, I'm so interested because its came up in conversation recently but even so its a good idea. I'm gonna go look into this now! xx
