A Few Xmas Surprises

A girl who can’t resist Barbie, and so my mum knows it.

For some unknown slightly maddening reason I have a rather strange attraction to a certain Stay Puft marshmallow man from the 1984 Ghostbusters film. I have ALWAYS had the urge to own one. (And I’m not even that keen on marshmallow itself!). I am always looking out for these at carboot sales, however the boyfriend managed to surprise me with this dinky version.

I also got a new umbrella, designed by Cath Kidston, an old favourite of mine. Seems my current Hello Kitty one was pretty much at the stage of danger. With a spindle broken and a wonky handle, it had seen better days.

And finally the much anticipated Book of Shadows Vol ll finally arrived on my dressing table…I feel an urge to re-decorate and re-organise everything in some sort of peacock/purple themed way… just to match the packaging!

Big Thrill

Once upon a time there was a little girl who dreamed of Soap & Glory…


“WOW!” screamed Alice.

This little girl lived happily ever after in a world full of luscious products.

The End.

(LONG STORY not so SHORT- I was in Boots the weekend these things were advertised on that infamous offer, a huge crate was wheeled out literally before my eyes. There was a queue specifically for these, of a good 40 people waiting patiently! Somehow I don't know quite how, I managed to get one. It was then swiftly sent to Santa, and arrived on my knee on Christmas Day. I cannot stop lining these products up and re-reading all the cute text...surely it's not just me?)


Update: As The Year Draws To An End…

I’ve been absent for a short time, regrettably. I always tend to say this but life really does work in mysterious ways. Since I last spoke to you, I have been working again, which is an unbelievable huge weight off my shoulder. I sometimes wrote about how I felt about the situation I was in, and how ultimately it was affecting me. I’d been so run down, and began to feel so useless that I felt so uninspired and quite often fed up.

It’s been a little hectic, especially working over Christmas time, but I feel everything has been worthwhile. Things are still uncertain with my long term career, but I’ve realised that’s the irony of life, nothing is ever certain. Things do change; you just have to be patient.

In the meantime I had a lovely Christmas :) Didn’t do anything too extravagant, just spent time with the family and boyfriend, which was nice. Here are a few pics, from the past month.

My advent calendar- Pucca. I picked this up for £4 from a bargain basement type shop; it turned out to be a bundle of surprises. Glitter hair gel anyone?

Our Christmas Tree :) I was banned from eating the tree decorations…damn!

An amazing night out we had just a few weeks before Christmas, was a lovely meal and stay in a hotel. I even managed to squeeze into my favourite French Connection dress♥

Stig- This mans been all over the place this Christmas, I must admit I’m growing quite fond.

Hope you all had a lovely December :)
