push my button

Hello chums! Just a quicky post. Pretty much everyone has noticed that i've, to quote Sarah, "New York'd" my header. So i thought a few more buttons for you charming lot wouldn't hurt, give you a few choices, boy i'm feeling festive and generous.





So there you are, take them if you like, and be sure to tell me and i shall mention your name in my next post. I got a really sweet private e-mail from Jennie the other day, telling me that she loved my blog. It really made me smile and say "n'awwhh", what a sweetie, thanks for that AND for putting my button on your blog.

Oh, and while i'm here, blogging, i'd like to say:

Gem is one hot chickie who runs From Gem With Love, she's been ill lately (literally ill, not in the rapper 'cool' sense), and i've missed her blogs.

thoughts arrive like butterflies

I said in my last post i'd plead my case as to why i've been on the side of the blogging milk carton for a whole week. Along with pretty much everyone, apart from the organised beings, i've been sliding inbetween shops so fast i've been pretty much a blur. I'm totally a last minute person, those of you who follow me on twitter will know this from times i've tweeted through the night because i had work in the next morning which i hadn't started - as i learnt in psyc class i'm a person who needs "the fear" to be motivated.

Anyhoo, while shopping for loved ones i couldn't help but snap up a few things for myself every now and again, it'd be rude to see a nice dress and not buy it, not allowing it to fulfill it's dressy destiny.

ASOS peter-pan collar ruffle dress

ASOS is a massive weakness of mine, combined with the fact they have tons of flash sales during the holidays which they e-mail me about, means it's beginning to look a lot like ASOS. "Emma, we're having a flash sale today from 12-2 - 50% off!" was received by moi at 1.30pm, i was like the speedy gonzales clicker of t'internet, i ended up bagging these peter-pan collared beauties for twenty-seven pound total. Thirty squidders each (now £18), plus fifty percent off, plus my NUS extra discount; I just had to get it in both colours.


No links because they're out of stock online but there are tons in store, so hurry, put that crumpet down and get there.

I spent all frickin' day in chester on friday, there was bargs everywhere, but my favourite was the BOGOF in republic in which i got my sister a bag and claimed the free bag for myself because i iz cleverz init. The floral tote was £29.99, and i got the red one for free worth £26.99, ultimate bargain!  Also while i was in chester i managed to pick up everything i need for my blog giveaway, i'll post it in the new year though, after everyone has calmed down slash recovered.


Please excuse the cheese factor, mother duck wanted to give a few family pictures in frames out for christmas this year, so monday consisted of a quicky shoot in her max speilman branch followed by attempting ice skating and riding the chester wheel - we didn't get to do either because they were both closed due to the "dropping temperatures" - so we went on the merry-go-round instead. Super fun. If you'd like one of these pictures for your purse or fireplace, which i know you all probably do, please e-mail me at

It may not seem like enough to occupy me for a week, but it was all spread out, and inbetween i was catching up and making plans with chums for over the christmas period. So now i'm super prepared for christmabob, i got jack's present(s), mother duck's present (which she's already worn) and everyone else who i'm buying for's present, plus i'm booked solid until the 29th. Setback though, i have thirty whole pounds to my name which is to get me out on boxing day and the day after, plus funding a NYE in london with the better half (i'm totally better though).

You may have noticed my new header, what do you think? Prefer the pick'n'mix letters? Can you totally tell i made the 'Voodle' myself?

out on your corner in the pouring rain

First of all i would like to give you all this qwerty hug - o|-< - to apologise for the extreme abandonment on my part, you're all the prettiest most coolest people ever, you all rule and i drool. How's that? Excellent, moving on for now, i'll explain all in my next post which will probably be tomorrow if i don't go to the wetherspoon's christmas quiz. How cool am i?

Raw Edge Boutique went online on the 31st October, offering the fashionable population one of a kind garms, unavailable on the high street. Yes there are beautiful - but few - fabrical porn pieces, yes they're reasonable priced, yes their blog offers tons of show-biz goss and their take on future fashion trends. The only bad side? I want it all but my purse isn't as big as my wardrobe needs! I keep getting e-mailed about and discovering beautifully stocked websites, then i take one look at my online banking statement, then one look at my shopping basket and find myself making this noise; "ohhhhwwww". Anyway, as my bank account can never hold this blogger back from doing some good old hearty windows explorer shopping (i actually use safari but windows ties in better), i browsed the website and shallowly picked out the prettiest subjects. I somewhat apologise for doing this again, i know a lot of you slap my wrist for introducing you to new websites, teasing you with new perv-worthy subjects which make you cancel your life insurance to afford a floral number. 

Here are my picks:-
001. £25     |     002. £18     |     003. £18     |     004. £25     |
005. £10     |     006. £32     |     007. £12     |     008. £18     |
009. £25     |     010. £18     |     011. £20     |     012. £41     |
I do love these garms, but none of them were in my size, sooo devastated but maybe you lot can snatch them up before someone else does.

Anyway, sorry i haven't shown you what i got from H&M when i went to london yet, but i couldn't find any of the stuff i bought on t'internet so i'll just wait until i get my camera for christmas and photograph my lame self in them instead. Deal?

dreaming in your living room

I was tagged at the beginning of december by amaris of *Find Beauty In Everything. to answer the same fifteen questions she did, so here you go my pretties.

1. What is your dream job?
Gahhh, you must know by now, surely; I want to be a crime scene investigator; I study forensic science and crime scene investigation at university and i bloody love it. Be assured, if there is something sciencey on TV, my cheeks and the couch will be well and truly acquainted. Geek? I think so.

2. What is your favourite fragrance for winter?
I hate change. I find what works for me and i stick to it like hot jam. I've always used Very irresistible by Givenchy, literally, i've never strayed. But last christmas my mother duck bought me Lola by Marc Jacobs and it's fit, i've been converted, but i still mosey back to Very irresisteble in the winter because i've worn it for so long, it reminds me of a simpler time, which makes me feel all christmassy.

3. How do you take your tea/coffee?
Two words; gingerbread latte. Okay okay, i know that's a christmas thing, but my gosh it's like a hug for my tongue. Usually i take my coffee ridiculously strong, in a flask (i have to sip it piping hot), with no sugar and lots of milk. My tea? In a cutesy pants, familiar mug with hardly any milk and no sugar, i'm really weird when it comes to drinks.

4. What is your most important beauty secret?
I'm not so much with the beauty, i literally only started wearing makeup when i was nineteen, and i still don't really like wearing it now. I do believe that makeup should not be worn for bed, only if i'm too drunk to physically identify a face wipe will i break my rule, even then i feel guilty. I think it's because once i heard, i can't remember where, if you go to bed with your makeup on, it ages your skin by ten days, it maybe a wives tale but it freaks me out *shivers*

5. If you had an all-expenses paid vacation anywhere, where would you go?

Urrrrm, let me think about that, AS I TYPE NEW YORK. I would like to venture to Paris though, that was one of the only places i didn't go during my flail in Europe, we didn't really have the time or the money. Or maybe Australia, or no wait, Vegas! What can i say, i'm a total traveller, always will be and i'd love to wake up in a different place every morning. 

6. If a genie popped up in your lap right now and offered you three wishes, what would they be?
There are things i'd wish for that are totally unentertaining (one which is totally obvious, and you'll know if you know me, or you've read my blog for some time), which i shalln't bore you with, so i'll give you my three superficial wishes. 1) Infinite  money 2) To be very successful 3) To see the whole world.

7. If you could only have breakfast, lunch, dinner or dessert foods for the rest of your life, which would you pick?
This is so hard. I really can't pick. Okay, dessert food, chocolate cake all the way.

8. If you were Hello Kitty, what colour hairbow would you wear?
I'm not into Hello Kitty, but my favourite colour is green, so i'll go with green.

9. What is your biggest make-up pet peeve?
Fake eyelashes. I know a lot of people wear them, but i actually can't stand them, i think they look awful. I mean if they were natural eyelashes, they'd be stunning, but whenever i see someone wearing them i can immediately tell and i just think "nice false eyelashes". And girls are just going too OTT with them, like feathers (what the fuck?) and coloured ones (green, what the fuck?), seriously then they moan about all of their natural ones have fallen out and they can't go au natural any more - NO SHIT - It's probably because you've been gluing bits of plastic to your eyelids.

10. If you could wear only one piece of jewellery for the rest of your life, what would it be?
My belly bar or my tongue bar, whenever i take them out i feel really weird, my tummy looks so strange and i have a lisp. It's not good.

11. What one talent do you wish you had?
I wish i could be 'arty'. I see all the time on the blogosphere, people who can photograph wonderfully (Gem, Dottie) or draw beautifully and some who make their own clothes. I wish i could do that.

12. Which product will you continue to purchase?
Rub Your Nose In It by Soap&Glory.

13. If you could look into the future, would you? And what would you want to know?
No, i like surprises. If i know my future is pretty shitty, then it'll ruin my life, whereas if i know my life is a success i wont have anything to wish for.

14. Who is your biggest celebrity crush? Include pictures :)
Adam Brody. He's actually so fit i want to cry/sell my future children to sit on him. I know he may not be everyone's cup of tea, but he's my cup, mug, flask, bucket, lake of tea. We'll be together one day, he'll find me, you'll see.

15. What made you start a blog?
I needed an outlet for my thoughts. 2010 had been a rough year and i'm not really one for talking about how i feel, so i guess voicing my feelings somewhat anonymously, really takes a load off. Plus i've made quite a few blog chums, who i'm really glad i've met, who i speak to on a daily basis and who make me smile all the time. Starting 'Voodle' is one of the best things i've ever done.

Here are five little beauties who i want to know more about:
Gorgeous red-head, Nadine, of Bimbobeautiful.
Burn the Blonde's mummy, Sarah, our little fittie.
London beauty, Purdey, of Kittenish Behaviour.
Gert lush Emily who gives us Pookie Loves...
A blogger bez, Gem, From Gem With Love.

If you want. No pressure. *glares*

below zero

Okay, i've been totally MIA this week due to the fact i was fannying around in our busy capital. This post; basically a catch up on recent events which have caused me to abandon all of your beautiful faces for far too long, don't slap my wrist too hard though, i bruise like a peach. 

My housemate from zante, zoe, whizzed all the way from humble bristol to gloriously spend the day with me in london (while jack was in work). Zoe's a planner, she literally had the whole day planned out to the minute, but i'm a plan ruiner so i dragged her back down to dawdle-ville safe and sound. Even though we went jet-setting in september we had so much to catch up on, including people watching, which is an art the zoester and i have perfected. We had hoped to be complete tourists, zoe whipping out her London A-Z at inappropriately located times, snapping pointless pics of ourselves next to monuments and even spoke in a made up language in public on several victorious occasions. How frickin' cool are we? Anyway; maddam tussauds plans got scrapped; chinese all-you-can-eat plans were tossed; london eye plans were positively discarded; but that did not make our rendezvous a failure.

le ice bar
For those of you who don't know or have never heard of what an ice bar is, it's basically a bar-like room where everything is made of ice, even the chairs and the glasses. This little event was aces, if not a little falsely publicised, a definite must-go-to. You're only allowed in for half an hour, and it's not like a normal bar, you have to book in advance and pay an entrance fee. It's definitely more of a tourist attraction than a bar that you could become a regular in, there is a bar attached with some rather tasty barmen, i could become a regular there but it's full of people just wanting a go in the icey add-on. The drinks were exceptionally cheap too, considering i paid a fiver for a glass of wine near victoria station the day before, a bottle of rosé wine there was ten pounds and five little squids for cocktails which were very strong. I'd just like to point out that in the second picture, i may look completely sloshed, but i wasn't(ish). Me and my little blonde bombshell only stayed for twenty minutes because we didn't want to hit rush hour, i wanted a ben's cookie and she wanted to meet my jack for the first time at clapham who got there at six. So off we trotted and HURRAH, we get to Oxford circus and they decide to shut the gates and not let anybody else in, great choice at five-thirty. FEAR NOT young readers, for i got my ben's cookie, and zoe got to meet my squeeze (sounded like the end of airline) all thanks to good old 'swearing at and pushing strangers' and running. 

So we all lived happily ever after, but that's not all we got up to, i'll tell you in my next post about what else 'went down' including my H&M escapades and what not.

P & L

Search ResultsOn the second picture i look positively smashed, but i assure you i wasn't(ish), just a little tired and windswept.

it was only a kiss is where beautiful garms live; beautiful, affordable vintage treasures that are like hugs for your eyes. I could write a cleverly worded paragraph, throw in a few random metaphors for good measure, sit back with my brew and gaze in awe at my wit. Instead, i'm going to pick out my besties (which is almost everything) and let the clothes speak for themselves, enjoy amigos.

That may seem like i've posted the whole bloody stock, but believe me, i haven't - getting the numbers down to this many felt like i was a judge at the v-factor (vintage).


My favourites out of the whole bunch, if i was only allowed to pick three, would be 13,18 and 25. There was one negative though, they were sold out of a lot of the stuff i wanted, but hey it's not their fault i discovered them after everyone had snatched up my eye candy - i would've if i got there first. Plus i still had a lot of URLs to pass on to mother duck, i should hopefully get them, if she figures out what URLs are and how to use them.

You may be thinking "wow what a lazy oaf, not much writing there, therefore it's blatantly a half-arsed picture post", but believe me, this took me hours. Picking out a decent number without having the whole website featured, sizing all the pictures so they all fitted on the same line then linking them all in - all whilst tweeting with fitties Gem, Purdey and Sarah - made for some very tough work, it's a good job i enjoy the shit out of it.

there 'snow business like blog business

Just a little post today to say, spanks for putting my blog badge on your page, it's very appreciated and means a bloody lot:-
Jack of BLHB
Gemma of From Gem With Love
Rose of rosedl
Sarah of Burn the Blonde
Sammy of Snap Happy Sammy
Sammy of The cookie button
Amaris of Find Beauty in Everything
Purdey of Kittenish Behaviour

I'll be sure to buy you an ice cream one day and eat it with you on the swings, or make you hot chocolate with mini marshmallows and watch The Muppet Christmas Carol, depends on the season and if you can have dairy. (If i've missed you out, just throw something of significant size at my shin and i shall add you in).

Also, a huge whopping thankyou to Sarah from Burn the Blonde, who helped me a lot via. e-mail earlier this week. As you all may know, i'm going to New York for the summer next year, and i'm practically shitting it because the website is so vague and i can't get in touch with anyone i know who's done it. Enter Sarah. After posting a comment stating seven things about me, one of them being about going to New York, Sarah commented telling me she'd done the whole Manhattan summer thing and would love to give me the ins and outs of her adventure. She answered all my questions in unexpected - and appreciated - detail, hereby turning all of my fears into excitement, and giving me basically a helpful must-do list before i go. If you haven't checked out her blog Burn the Blonde already, what the shit are you waiting for, It's awesome.

I heart Sarah.

While i'm pointing out blogs that are frickin' sexual, i'd like to point you frantically towards the following blog bombshells:-
Asha of photo-booth killer - Stunning Aussie girl, plenty of outfit posts and opinions.
Gem of From Gem with Love - Amazing chickie; diary-esque blog with plenty of photos; always touches on important subjects.
Purdey of Kittenish Behaviour - Gorgeous uptown girl, plenty of outfit posts, touch of do it herself dress making and tons of hilarious and cringey online dating stories (which i lurve).

To top off this post, this super amazing post (ahem), here's the christmasiest (yeah, i just made up a word, and what?) video i could find..

christmas time, topshop and wine

For those of you who read 'deck your halls with frocks from asos', you'll know what i'm doing over the next few weeks, for those of you who haven't here's a brief overview of what's going down init *totally street*. Christmas is that time of year where looking glam is expected, people looking fabulous are thrusted upon our eyes making us that more aware of how we dress and the pressure to live up to the super stylish standards of this holiday. So i'm scoping out all of the high street online stock, chucking out all the riff raff and posting all the goodies i find here, sort of like an online exclusive nightclub. So sit back with a mince pie, while i do all the hard work so you don't have to, splendid.

Next? I was going to do Allsaints after a comment from Ray suggesting i do so, so i checked it out but there was nothing wearable below £100, so i wouldn't have had much to write about so i chose to give topshop's dress section a whirl. I was rather impressed, array of colours, nicest dress starting at £26. Topshop, are you feeling okay? I'm not usually a topshop regular, because i prefer thrifting, i begrudge paying an obscene amount when i know i can get it for cheaper. Anyway, here are my findings:

spare change - £20-£39
    |      oo1. £28        |       oo2. £29        |       oo3. £30      |      oo4. £30      |       oo5. £32     |    oo6. £32     |
|    oo7. £32       |       oo8. £34      |      oo9. £35       |       o10. £35         |       o11. £36       |       o12. £38       |

Kudos to Topshop, this was very difficult and i actually had to push a few out to squeeze some nicer ones in, it was quite the task. I managed to pick my favourite however, i just love how number oo4 is so laid back and simple in a block colour, like a blank canvas. Here's how i'd wear it:
Dress £30   |   Ring £7.50   |  Tights £8.50   |   Bracelet £12.50   |   Shoes £62   |   Cameo £12.50   |   Shrug £25   |   Bag £20
Total = £168

Quite expensive, but considering the whole outfit is from topshop, still quite cheap. Plus, the shoes are the most expensive item, you could probably find a lower priced twin and drag that price right down. I think i'm just going to buy that dress for the sheer lust i have for it, and the fact it's only thirty pound-a-mundos, bargain!

if you've got the doe - £40-59
|        o13. £40        |      o14. £40     |      o15. £42      |     o16. £45       |      o17. £45        |      o18. £46      |
|        o19. £48        |      o20. £48      |      o21. £50        |     o22. £55      |      o23. £56        |      o24. £56      |

Once again i'm pretty much IN LOVE with all of these, especially o21, but because i used a similar coloured one for the first one, i'll opt for number o16.
Dress £45  |  Ring £7.50  |  Feather cape £75  |  Shoes £100  |  Fabric necklace £14  |  Bag £35
Total = £276.50

I love this outfit, i'm obsessed with socks and sandals, albeit this isn't quite sandals and socks but this is the winter version right? I saw a girl in flip flops in chester last thursday while i was people watching in mcdonalds, she had a huge fur coat on though, i had to take a second glance and i nearly spat out my festive pie.

if food isn't important - £60-£150
|        o25. £60        |       o26. £60            |    o27. £65      |     o28. £65      |      o29. £65         |    o30. £75      |
|        o31. £75      |      o32. £75        |      o33. £79    |     o34. £85       |      o35. £95          |      o36. £150      |

Oh my god, this one took me ages, which i'm surprised about because when dosh is no object, i trolley off and get it within minutes. But this one was very hard, every time i picked a dress to do, i'd struggle on a certain section like jewellery or shoes so i'd pick another dress. This is what i eventually came up with though, très bon, if not a bit sickly matching.
|  Dress £65  |  Bracelet £18.50  |  Shoes £80  |  Necklace £15  |  Shoulder chain £40  |Earrings £12.50  |  Ring £5  |  Bag £65  |
Total = £301
See what i mean about the sickly matchingness? I do, but i still like it, think it'd look cute. Doing my usual riff raff sieving of topshop was one of the hardest i've ever done, i had to resist putting every single dress in, almost buying a mortgage worth and i was surprised at how cheap the dresses started; they weren't even half arse dresses in the low price range, in fact, i think i'll get about three of them and parade around telling people they were four thousand pound each. And all let's not forget, it's free UK delivery over £75, perfect excuse. Very impressed topshop, very impressed.

things have gotten closer to the sun

I was tweeting with Gemma at From Gem With Love last night about materialistic followers. Her blog is a lot bigger than mine, so she gets more bloggers using her hard work as an advert, but i still get the odd few. It proper gets on my wick because i didn't do that to get followers, i just worked really hard on my posts, as do most huge blogs who get exploited. The fact that a lot of bloggers are aware of this, further proves that the population of 'follow me and i'll follow you'ers  is multiplying faster than the snow on my drive (bloody snow). The fact that they use us as an advert, isn't the most offensive thing though, it's that they don't think we can detect their false statements and actually believe they've taken an interest in our blogs. Right before they plug the shit out of theirs or their giveaway. I only comment on post that i like, and i actually say something about it in the comment, i take time to read and understand the info before i comment and make it as personal as i can to the author and as relative as i can to the post. Gem made a good point by saying "i'll link to their blog if i like it" and "make their own blog great so they get readers", which is so true since now it seems these pluggers care more about getting followers, than they do about putting effort into their posts. The reaction i usually have, is flat out ignore them and their copy & paste method, to try and freeze them out. I honestly would rather have three followers who enjoy reading what i put out there, than four thousand that couldn't give a flying hedgehog what i think. The irony is, they'll probably never read this post.

On a lighter note...
I got given two 'Versatile blogger' awards this week, one from Purdey at Kittenish Behaviour, and the other from Nadine at Bimbobeautiful. It meant a lot to me, since i only started getting followers about a month ago, before then it was like i was talking to myself! So here are seven things about me:

001. My three biggest fears are dwarves, horses and jellyfish. Seriously dwarves just really terrify me. Once, in the precinct in liverpool town, one came riding up to me on a bike, dressed as a pirate and shouted "arrrgghhh". I ran, i ran like a motherfudger.

002. I have seven scars. Main ones are a collection of scars on my hands and knees from when i got hit by a car almost three years ago. There's one on my palm from when a had a nasty bite from my hamster nibbles when i was nine. On the same palm, there's a huge long scar from when i had the bright idea of letting my dog (who was bigger than me) pull me on roller blades, eventually leading to me falling onto a piece of glass (and chipping my tooth). Up and left from my bellybutton is a round scar, from when a belt buckle was digging into me all day, then got infected. I had to be pinned down by four people whilst a first aider squoze it to death and stitched it up. On my first day as a chef, i chopped off a big chunk of my wedding ring finger, it's still a bit wonky. One on my right thumb from when i put my hand in a sink with a knife in it and it cut it open, because it was a carving knife though, the scar is quite squiggly and looks kinda cool. And the best one, above my left eyebrow from walking into a lampost on the way home from school!

003. I love science. I love learning about it. I love thinking about things in a scientific way. I always approach things scientifically. I love scientific programmes, documentaries and books. I study forensic science in uni (i should be doing work for it right now). I just bloody love science.

004. I've only ever had two boyfriends. After being tied down throughout my whole escapade across europe, i came back and wanted to be single, since then i had been. Until i found jack, who i've actually known since primary school and made brief encounters with throughout my adolescent years. One day, i hungoverly/still drunkenly went 'round to his house and spent the day making up innuendos and eating pretzels, we hung out a lot after that day until he kissed me about two weeks later. Then he moved to london (talk about timing), he still asked me to be his girlfriend though and i said yes (huge deal for me), so far so good. We disagree on almost everything, in a good way, and there's always a debate on the horizon. 

005. I'm going to spend the summer in New York next year. I go on about it enough, i'm stupidly excited, four months of work followed by three weeks of travelling. I'm also terrified but a good terrified, i love going to new places on my own, i meet a lot more people because i'm motivated to do so. I better get a freakin' move on applying for jobs as apparently most of them are gone by january.

006. I have weird food cravings. In first and second year, i ate some very questionable combos; chocolate pasta; beetroot beans; cider jelly; onion ring lasagne and lots of others. Seriously, i'm suprised i didn't die, but i still get cravings for these things. Yeah, first year really fucked me up.

007. My mum is my best friend.

Now i'll tag seven blog chums to indulge me in theirs.
Laura from As If By Magic
Michelle from daisybutter
Sarah from Burn the Blonde
Rose from rosedl
Ashlee from Photobooth killer

oh hello mr blog badge

After a huge nudge in the right direction from Sarah at Burn the Blonde, via IFB, i've managed to dodge uni work and make a profile button for you all. You can now add my badge onto your page, if you do so wish, no pressure >:| just kidding. But yeah, i'd be very grateful, and if you tell me you've done it either over twittersville or via comment, i'll gladly give your blog a mention in my next post.

evenin' gavnah

First of all, sorry about the HORRENDOUS photo quality, i used my webcam as i still do not have my damn camera! Oh, and while i'm apologising, sorry about my face. Anyhoo, chester was the victim today, i attacked that bad boy with a bowler hat, casio and scrabble rings spelling 'hi' - old skool. Bought a load of stuff from primark actually, and noticed that the prices have gone up tremendously, what's their fascination with £11? I wore a velvet dress with tights and knee highs, i think demonstrating that was the purpose for the fourth picture, talk about failure. I look like a loopy person.

Moving swiftly on. I got nominated for a most versatile blog award by my dearest Purdey over at Kittenish Behaviour, i'd like to publicly thank her as it means alot, and i'll be nominating mine soon!

Short blog post for now, as i haven't eaten for most of the day, and because of late night shopping, i didn't get in until ten so i'm having my tea with the crickets and owls.

beneath the milky twilight, kiss me

Those of you who know me, or have been following my blog for a while now, will know i have a book that hasn't left my side since i was 13. To put into perspective just how much my little paper friend means to me i'll tell you this, on all my travels my passport has been just kind of flung around and kept next to the burning hot straighteners or whatever, whilst my book was safely locked in the safe. It's starting to tatter now, and i'm now scared of taking it out with me incase it falls apart, which kind of defeats the point right? There's only about thirty pages left in it, but i just can't bring myself to leave it at home because i never know when i'll hear something i'll always want to remember, or i'll meet someone who i will want to write in my orange doodle chum. Anyway, most of the time, when i'm writing in my book, i'm off in my own little world and don't even remember writing whatever i wrote until i look back through it. So i was casually browsing through today, tea in hand, and i came across something i definitely don't remember writing. It was cute though, and i thought i'd share it with you all, enjoy.

"i want someone who likes the base of the cheesecake, as i like the top.
i want someone who will wait with me for the green man, even though there's no cars.
i want someone who will eat all of the raisin revels, and let me have all the chocolate ones.
i want someone with pockets big enough for us to still hold hands when it's cold.
i want someone who i can feel smiling as he kisses me.
i want someone who doesn't wash his hoodie for weeks because it smells like me.
i want someone who can finish off my sentences."

In one way, it's super lame and sounds unfinished, but i really can't remember writing it so that's kind of cool. When i read it i was like awwhh i do only eat the top of cheesecakes and then the bottom is just sitting there, alone, not being able to fulfill it's biscuity destiny. Same with revels there's always a few raisin buddies rolling around in the bag and i feel mean throwing them away, so 'years ago me' has a great concept, but i delivered it in a totally emo style!

Laaaaaaame post, but i thought i'd share, plus i have an ulterior motive. Last week, i got a pleasant little tweet from Catherine of lady liquor vintage, saying i'd won the giveaway she did. It made me feel really good, and cheered me up after being stuck in the rain and flapping around all day like a freakin' maniac, so i thought that i'd do one. I'll start picking up little goodies i find out and about and compile a little box of treaties for a lucky follower, which i'll give away once i reach 100 followers, or my room is practically bursting with stuff i've bought, one of the two.

And, i'm currently working on the christmas dress special, i've chosen topshop. It's a lot harder than ASOS, the dresses are really cheap and gorgeous but it's the accessories and shoes which whack up the price range, so i'm trying to get around that but it should be up soon.

Have a great wednesday.
