My week 5

I don’t care that it’s way past noon and I’m still in my pyjamas. It’s sunday and they have pandas on, so it’s ok.

Kinky boots. This picture on my shoe desk calendar made me smile.

A couple of yums from the week. Claire (my bfs house mate) made us some awesome mac and cheese with breadcrumbs, cut up sausages, mustard and lea and perrins among other things. It was amazing. And I got to take left overs to work the next day. Score! I also went to Yo Sushi with my mum and brother. My brother had not been before so that was funny. He’s very sarcastic so his reactions to stuff made me laugh.

Decided to be a bit weird and wear my butterfly necklace that I got from Primark a couple of years ago and have only worn once. Wore it with my sheer black shirt with leather detail, skinny jeans, black wedges and my grey half sleeve batwing cardie. Still not 100% sure if it worked but ah well. Fashion is for fun and I had fun wearing this outfit.

Housemates cats, Rose and Axl. Look how cute they are!

Saw this guy in the window of House of Fraser in Meadowhall. He was actually cycling! Love it.

Me and the bf getting ready for our impromptu night out last night. Luckily I had bought this dress earlier at Meadowhall. Was £85 at monsoon but I got it for £25.50 in the sale! And how cool is the bfs t-shirt. We saw it online and had to get it. It’s Darth Vader, Sauron and Voldemort having drinks at a bar. Awesome.

The vintage bag

I would like to introduce you to my vintage bag. I originally bought this for my vintage shop, not being love at first sight for me, but I thought my customers would like it.

It was only when going on holiday to Portugal, I realised I didn’t have a day bag to carry round with me. With nothing being the right size in my personal bag collection, I turned to my vintage collection. I hadn’t even put this bag on my website so I didn’t see any harm in using it for the holiday.

A snapshot of me and the bag and my mum. Oh yeah, that’s me with a head. Helllloooooo.
 
I don’t know when it was during that holiday but I fell in love with this bag! It is the perfect size for just a day bag but fits all my reading material in it (small monthly magazines AND my massive book) as well. I get bored quite easily when travelling so this is essential to me.

I’m so sad but I love bags with different compartments. Makes me feel more organised ha ha. 
 
So this bag is now mine. Sorry Toast Rack.
 
Oh yeah, and the icing on the cake? I got this for 50p at a car boot sale!

What to do with £30?

So I got £30 from my grandma for Christmas. Whenever I get money as a present, I never spend it on specific things. I just use it as my own money. For once, I would like to use some gift money on something specific for myself that I can say, I got that from my grandma. 
 
So what to do with £30? A few ideas I came up with:
 
A Topshop bag, £30

DVD’s I’ve been after for awhile from Amazon, add up to £30 including shipping.

A bangle that I featured on my Random Quirks blog here and some more nail varnish (I may be addicted!)

              nerd

Or I could nerd out and get these. A hogwarts letter necklace and a hufflepuff prefect badge from etsy.

bangle

I am a Hufflepuff (and proud) and was annoyed that they only sold Gryffindor and Slytherin Prefect badges at the WWOHP. I was a prefect at school so I really wanted one of these. 
 
I’m not sure what to pick. It’s either one of these options, or I just see what I like the look of when I go shopping with my mum on saturday. What do you think?

My week 4

So this was an interesting week, more so towards the end. Check it out.

Axl gets tired surfing the web all day.

A 1930s pump on my 365 days of shoes desk calendar. Love this (thank you to my lovely bf for getting it for me).

Axl being Axl. He’s weird. Nuff said.

Went to the red hot world buffet on deansgate on friday night with the friend and bf. Was nomtastic. Just check out my desserts! Love the waffle on a stick.

IMG_0542

Yes, I am going out with what appears to be a child. The bf’s selections. All the delicious things and he went mental about the bubblegum ice cream. Didn’t believe me when I said there are loads of other places he could get it, lol.

Finally saw the new Sherlock Holmes film. Made me lol. I recommend it.

Saturday night spent making jewellery for my fair that was today. Like the charms?

Part of my stall at the fair. Was a good day though extremely cold!
 
Back to work tomorrow 🙁

Cats are funny things

This is Axl. 
He is one of my housemates’ cats (his sister is called Rose who I have introduced before – they are guns and roses fans, lol). He is a rather odd fellow who likes bags, the smell of shampoo, stretching into the weirdest positions and purring extremely loud.

 

IMG_0523

He has no shame.
 
Apologies for the messy floor. My internet only works well on the floor so this is where my laptop lives. Axl decided to wander into my room after I’d had a shower and went mental sniffing the towel that I’d dried my hair with. This is how he ended up. Legs a kimbo and front paws up making him pose like a rabbit. An odd fellow indeed…
