Paws for thought - Leopard print nails

What do we think of these bad boys?! The jury is out for the time being, but they are kinda fun and didn't take very long to do either. Can't wait to see the hubby's face when he get's in..... not sure they're his kind of thing!
Nails Inc 'Candy', H&M Nail Polish 'Check Me Out', Leighton Denny 'Supermodel' (possibly my favourite polish of ALL time) and Barry M 'Black'

One of those days

Having a REALLY frustrating day..... I'm putting a plea out into cyber space. If anyone knows how to put a twitter feed within a blog, please please get in touch :(

I used to have one and it worked fine - then all of a sudden it has disappeared and I can't remember how to get it back. Deep breath.......... Cup of tea.

Anyway, I've continued clearing out today, mostly through my make-up draws. Can't believe how many lipsticks I have. I don't even wear lipstick! Most upsettingly, they all appear to be the same (ish) colour... Error!! Don't even get me started on the lip glosses!!!

Right - having successfully wasted most of the day messing around with twitter/my blog with no success, I’m dragging my coldified butt off to do some work.

It's so hard to say goodbye

I've just returned from the dump :(

Before we move later this week, I decided to take the opportunity to go through all my clothes and shoes with a ruthless attitude...... I'm now less 14 pairs of shoes and five bags of clothes. Makes me feel nauseous just thinking about it!

RIP shoe shoes!

Does that make me Crazy?

It never rains but it pours! Following on from my last post, things have not slowed down.

Mr M and I have found a new home which we move into on Thursday. I'm so excited and can't wait to start doing it up and my scrap book is already full of ideas for what we can do with it - I'm loving the below

 However, it is tinged slightly because three days after putting a deposit down, I decided to quit my job. EeeeeK!!!

This is completely uncharacteristic for me. I am not a 'fly by the seat of your pants' kinda girl and it feels like a completely crazy thing to have done. But it just felt like it was time for a change. So having worked out my months notice and left on a massive high note (V Festival Louder Lounge), it brings me to today - day three of unemployment......

I would be lying if I said I wasn't a little apprehensive, but I'm really excited too and have everything crossed for some very exciting ventures that I've been putting off for way to long. It also means I can spend a bit more time getting my head around the blummin wire frame for this blog! Surely it can't be that difficult (famous last words).

I'm also going to take the opportunity to upload some of my favourite bits of 'fashpiration'..... Whilst clearing through loads of stuff on my laptop I found some of my old 'inspo' folders. It's clear to see whose style I really admire by the number of times certain famous faces pop up! I've also selected the ones that seem most fitting for this unseasonably autumnal day!

Can't remember where I sourced them all from, but I'm guessing they are mostly from and Olsen Anonymous ( - one of my fav blogs for 'fashpiration'.

The Day I Said I Do

I mentioned in my last post that LOTS had been going on with me lately, hence the sporadic posts and I wasn't kidding - I GOT MARRIED!!

The big 'I Do' was on April 30th 2011 and it really was the best day of my life. I still can't believe that I'm a 'Mrs' - It's literally the weirdest thing in the world. I'm not sure when saying 'my husband' will stop feeling strange. Hopefully soon.

Here's just a few of the early stages, as captured by our lovely and amazing photographers Penny and Cam McKinley-Rodgers. I honestly can't recommend them enough. Not only are they both genuinely lovely people, they have an incredible talent to capture those special moments when no one else is looking and put everyone around them instantly at ease. I simply can't wait for our album.
