Tuesday – Japan & back to work

Back to work today so I decided to make getting dressed extremely easy for myself by just chucking on this easy ensemble. Plus, a skirt and heels wouldn’t have been the best idea in this hurricane-esque weather!

Me and Nick are thinking about going to Japan in the spring. To help us decide we ordered the Encounter guide on Tokyo. Nick took a photo of one of the pages earlier and sent it to me at work on an email. It’s safe to say that my mind is now definitely made up. They better let adults play in that cat bus!

Tonight is my first night working to my new evening schedule. For me this is a nightmarish way to live. I enjoy spontaneity. But I felt a strict, timed schedule was necessary to keep my stress levels down and to manage my time effectively. On the plus side, I’ve scheduled some pure Twitter time in there so hopefully I’ll be able to have some lovely conversations with everyone and get to know people better now! You can follow me here if you’d like a chat!

If you have a second then you should watch this comical short video from my friend Jimmy of Jimmy’s Iced Coffee as he tries to make a white russian in the rain and blustering wind that we had this morning.

I hope all of your first days have been good to you – it was a bit of a shock getting out of bed at 6.30am! I’d forgotten how dark it is!

P.S. I can’t say too much at the moment but I’ll hopefully be hosting a very exciting giveaway to celebrate my birthday next week!

Thursday – Christmas & another engagement


I don’t want to bore you with words too much, just wanted to check in and say hi! Hope you all had a lovely Christmas. I had a great time :) My highlight was playing Just Dance with all my sisters on Boxing Day – got aching arms now though! My sister also got engaged on Christmas Day which is nice and my sister-in-law felt my niece/nephew kick for the first time :)

I’ve also been up to Wimbledon to visit my Uncle & his partner which was very lovely as I’ve never been to their house before. We went on a walk around the park and saw the tennis courts and ate some amazing food (because he’s a chef).

Here’s a few snippets of what we got up to:

Wednesday – WIMH & bloggers christmas party outfit help!

My life is so dull in the winter – bring on the Spring!

I was delighted to receive an email the other day informing me that I had won a competition on the fabulous new WIMH (What’s In My Handbag) website! I was told that an Eyeko product would be dispatched to me shortly. So, today the postman bought me a skinny eyeliner pencil in a very light pink. I can’t wait to try it and will review as soon as I can.

In the mean time, you should check out WIMH, they are currently doing a daily feature on industry insiders handbag contents and today you can take a peek and see what the lovely Sarah from Temporary:Secretary carries around with her :)

This is what I wore today – very boring I know sorry

As you may or may not know, it’s the bloggers xmas party on Friday in Bristol – if you haven’t already got a ticket then you should definitely buy yourself one (it’s only £5!)

I’ve been trying to decide what to wear for ages and I haven’t been in the mood for shopping recently so I haven’t bought anything new. So I need your help.

Which one do you think?

My white Adam dress from the Outnet……or my black French Connection dress??
