cause i'm freezing

I'm so tired, and cold. Maybe some M&S mince pies will make things better. I'm starting to really like these English little things.

I'm having fun

went for a drink after work last night with a friend I haven't seen in ages. Thought I would be home 8pm, the latest. But ended up staying out until 2am dancing to some amazing old tunes. What great night! In fact it was pretty amazin.

good morning Monday

I've got a beauty tip for you guys. I've always splashed out on expensive cleansers and makeup removers from Clinique, Decleor etc. But not anymore. Yesterday I tried this one from Garnier, An eye makeup remover that really works and feels lovely on the skin. Around £3 from Boots.

1st of Advent

The Ikea christmas stars are up... Suddenly the kitchen became so much more cosier.

The day after..

Drinking tea and enjoying a day off. Yesterday after work, my friend Jess and I went for a quiet drink...or at least that was the plan. Instead we enjoyed a night out with cocktails and dancing. What a great night! The spontaneous nights out are always the best ones. Today feeling abit....tired and slow. But happy.
Unlike me I forgot my camera yesterday. But I did see some drunken pictures from last night HERE.

hey girl, I was wearing that!

Don't you just love it when you show up to a place and you meet someone dressed almost identical. In this case, same boots, same tights, same dress just different colour, and a blazer to top that off. Luckily, it was my lovely Jess. Great minds think alike!..right!?

mince pies and a glass of bubbly

Mee and Lux christmas event. Between 5.30-8.30 you could enjoy some shopping, homemade mince pies, drinks, discounts and getting some lovely ideas for christmas pressies. Lovely evening.
Now. bedtime.

just a perfect day

A beautiful Wednesday. A rose bouquet, a walk, long chat with mama, chai latte, body balance class with Kelly, homemade pea soup, Cameron Diaz movie and popcorn. Happy days.

morning rays

Early morning, decided to take a bath while still pitch black outside. When suddenly, the sun came gazing through the bathroom blinds... couldn't believe it. Was it actually gonna be a bright and sunny day?!. Great start!

If I would ever get married... This is the song that I would play at my wedding.

exactly three years ago...

Can't believe three years have passed since we were living in Vancouver. Felt like it was only yesterday we were unpacking our Ikea furniture..

hey you.

Monday again... My cold is gone! thanks to the massive amount of herbal teas I've consumed over the weekend. Now making some mulled wine. Basically bought a bottle of cheap red wine, a bag of mulled wine spices and mixed it up which is now simmering on the stove. The home smells amazing. Warming up to Christmas!

getting fit

Today I'm starting a more healthy lifestyle. No more pizzas, candy, chocolate biscuits.. non of that!!. I'm gonna start with my pilates again, It's been a looong time since I last went there... and more power walks. Need to stop with the weather excuse.
My new lifestyle is starting today! right now! Yep. Right Now.
(you can probably tell that I've been home all weekend restless and bored. Damn cold)

Taco Pie.

I know, alot of posts about food lately. ... I love food. Maybe a bit too much. As you know I don't cook much. My boyfriend does. But that's his passion. Mine is eating it. But today I made Taco Pie. Last time I made Taco pie i was 15 or something. I'm still on that level of cooking. It's got to be easy and super quick and delicious of course. This dish is yummy and takes about 30 minutes.

in a mood

Ahhhhh, I'm getting seriously tired of my cold now. Stayed in all day, eating, drinking lots of tea with ginger, watching crap tv and calling people complaining about my miserable state. No, but it wasn't that bad, I'm just feeling a bit bored and restless now, hoping that tomorrow will be a better day. What are you up to? out having fun? hope so.

Zandra Rhodes

I love love love my new mega high wedges from Zandra Rhodes. I promise I will show them soon. Thank you Rach.

Friday dinner

It's Friday night. I've got a cold so I'm in my own little world feeling sorry for myself. I'm glad my boyfriend cooks. Tonights dinner, meatballs, sweet potato mash and Swedish lingonberries, which is a must with meatballs. A must.
Hope you all enjoy your Friday night..

me and my glossy magazines

So much reading to catch up on....Think an early night with a cup of tea and some chocolate will get me out of this Wednesday blues.
