Feeling Hot Hot Hot…

19 Aug

Goodness gracious it has been a scorcher this weekend…

I have spent most of the time just trying to regulate my temperature and making sure my incredibly milky skin is slathered in SPF15.

Me and Mr B did venture into town on Saturday to watch some of the Worthing Birdman that was taking place. It was packed on the seafront and We ended up in a pretty bad spot and late and so we only managed to see the last person jumping…..well they did quite well and were apparently the furthest that day (I guess we were good luck)


We then went to see the new Pixar film Brave which was lovely the story was pretty amazing and it is a nice change in the usual Disney/Pixar storyline and focuses quite heavily on female characters and mother, daughter relationships. It was a lovely change and the animation and music was especially beautiful.


The other great thing about going to the cinema was also the air con as it was still incredibly warm. The only thing for it was to get home have dinner and then eat some ice cream to cool off and get my favourite picture of me from the weekend:


We then had a horrible nights sleep trying to stay cool, keeping out the covers and trying to keep the windows open enough to let air in but not let the cats out.

Sunday was again a scorcher but the day started amazingly with gorgeous Cat cuddles from my cat Bowski


We then had some yummy lunch and watched the Muppet Movie all in all a perfect weekend.

I really must get back to doing some crafting soon, I am looking to try some ceramic painting so if anyone has given this a go I would love any hints and tips.



Whizzy Weekends…

13 Aug

I seem to have had a few weeks of not having enough time to do anything, although when I look back I don’t feel like I have got an awful lot done….sadly it has however meant I have rather neglected the blog, Sorry.

Anyway back to it and here is a little overview of my weekend:

I went to visit Mr B in Lincoln it was such a lovely weekend and I got to hear about Mr B’s Gliding Course which although he told me was amazing fun I don’t think I will be signing up for anytime soon!



Pictures taken from Mr B’s head cam the second is the right way up (aerobatics in a glider not my cup of tea)

Something that was my Cup of Tea however was the most beautiful little Tea Room in Fulbeck, we sat outside in the sunshine drank tea and ate Lincolnshire sausage and mustard sandwiches…lt was bliss!


We both have a bit of a soft spot for TK Maxx and found an amazing one that had all the sale items super cheap, I picked up a dress that wouldn’t usually be my style but for some reason I was drawn to the print……well turns out it was a Clements Ribeiro wrap dress for £11 the tag says it was originally £214 needless to say I snapped it up and I think it will be a lovely autumnal dress.

I really love the gorgeous bold print.


The weekend whizzed by and it was soon time to leave but of course not before one last cup of tea and a giant bourbon just to keep me going for the journey back on the train.


Luckily my journey back was pretty uneventful and I even got back in time for the Olympic Closing Ceremony. I am thinking I am going to try my luck at getting some Paralympics tickets or at least tickets to go to the Olympic Park even just to go up the steel tower have a look around.

I hope everyone had sunny fun weekends too…


Always believe in your soul…

3 Aug

Ok ok I have been truly bitten by the Olympic bug and have on more than one occasion screamed myself hoarse and bawled as some Athlete from a country I haven’t even heard of takes to the podium…….and as for when Team GB get a medal well I am in floods!

All of this Olympics malarkey is of course another great excuse for wearing some metallics so I have put together a few of my favourite pieces (in Gold of course)


This yummy dress is from Asos for £65 but guaranteed to make you look like a winner on a big night out.

Not into dresses how about these bad boys from H&M for £24.99



I am also loving this Clutch from Warehouse which I think is a bargain at £22


And last but not least this amazing nail polish by Opi which contains real 18k gold flakes it is to be released soon and although I have heard rumours of a £23 price tag I think I may have to treat myself to this gorgeous looking stuff


I hope everyone is enjoying the games as much as me, I am very excited that the athletics has just started and can’t wait to scream some more at the TV and hopefully weep with joy for a few more members of Team GB!
