A little update...

Alright, lovelies?

I've not been the most updatery (new word) of bloggers this past week but I've had a busy week and a lot of work at the theatre recently. Starlight Express is on at the moment and I've gone from 'What the heckins is this shiz about...' to 'ZOMG I LOVE TRAINS' in the space of a week. It's seriously good. If you get the opportunity to see the UK tour, TAKE IT!

Anywhoooooo, aside from that I've had a pretty fun week. Me and my gorgey porgey mate Emily went to watch the athletics at the Paralympics. It was brillz despite the fact neither of us had a clue what was happening half the time and it was lovely to have a catch-up in any case.


On Sunday I had my own little stall at my local carboot sale and managed to make over £100 just from selling old clothes, shoes and bags - what a result! I'd gone the previous week to investigate the time I needed to be there and picked up some lovely bits that I still need to show you (haven't got any decent pics of them yet). It was pretty packed as you'll see from the picture below:


Lastly, I also managed to bag free tickets to see Elbow at the iTunes Festival and took my brother, Richard, along. I've loved their music for ages so I was super excited! I also managed to get my 2 seconds of fame as I made it onto the live stream of the festival during 'One Day Like This' whilst I was singing my heart out...



In other news, I'm by no means a blog designing expert but had a lovely email from Brani Laine over at That's Just Lovely... who liked my layout and said she'd like something similar with hers. I do enjoy a good layout making-sesh so I was happy to help out and here's what I came up with:


Make sure you check out her blog because she's just lovely too!

That's pretty much it from this little update post. See you soon, hopefully with a haul or OOTD.

  2. Can't wait to see your car boot haul! I love your layout too, I am actually in the process of creating my own blog, but the whole layout thing is so confusing it's doing my head in! xo

    1. Awwwww thanks Jo! Good luck with your layout, it's really just a case of trial and error and experimenting a lot of the time! Drop me an email if you need any help or anything :) xxx

    1. It's such a good idea - a great way to make a little extra money if you're strapped for cash. xxx
