The Musical...

Okay, I can't sing/dance lets get that sorted from the out set! YET I find my self in the highly unlikely predicament of starring in the local Balsall Common amateur dramatic society summer show!


So you might be thinking I'm pursuing a long life dream or it's an unknown urge deep within me... No, not at all I simply have been talked into singing on stage to an Abba based musical to a bunch of people who I don't know. In short I'm filling my pants

been a while...

Hello, sorry for utter rubishness! Life has changed somewhat!
different job, different outlook and positive future (or so i keep saying!)

Few things i've been investing my time in recently il name just a few: Birmingham Half marathon -oh sweet lord! need to get training and soon.
Been a nice turnaround in clothing recently (autumn/winter) although i hate the thought of winter coming-dark mornings and dark nights not to mention the cold, HOWEVER i am cushioned by this devastating blow by the enticement of warm clothing! Put a fave up from (who else) Superdry!
Other news in the home ware front i've re discovered Dwell, some cool crap in that shop including a mental silver T-rex... who doesn't want one!?

Been fortunate to go see a friend in an am-dram show last weekend which makes me feel inspired to get involved with something. Good luck getting me on a stage though :/ to show my support i bought a great book called The Polaroid Book from Taschen cool history of polaroids with some great visuals and essays from Hitchcock.

Daisy Pulls It Off...

I went to see an amazing production last week, its called 'Daisy pulls It Off' at the Leamington Loft Theatre. It ran from the 6th-16th July. You could tell that the company didn't have a massive budget however this didn't affect what was to be an intense scene setting performance.
Each scene was painted out in such clarity using little props to create structure, it allowed the viewer to enhance the raw quality of the show and put a personal imagination spin on the outcome.
The cast were equally enchanting, never stepping out of character, not during the interval or at the ending which lead the viewer to truly believe we were in a school hall (where the performance was set) !

If you ever get a chance to see this... GO!

i've let my debit card down :(

River Island 20.00 from 40.00 b.a.r.g.a.i.n.

I climbed a fricking mountain!!

Took us 4/5 hours give or take a tea stop at the halfway house cafe to climb the 3,560ft (1085m) tall mountain. I've never climbed a mountain before… cross that off the list!

My legs are still feeling the pain of mountaineering (it hurt more coming down). Thoroughly enjoyed it, with the added plus of staying at Plas Dinas Hotel B&B and meeting some great new friends who I've heard a lot about… good to put some faces to the stories! haha.

Thankyou very much to Carlton for making this happen, much appreciated… just please don't make me dig you another pond though!

In other news… local…ish Am Dram needs some volunteers. Oh dear.

Hello, hope everyone is just having a lush beginning to their week! My week has started with a chuffing parking ticket! FANKS. and to top that off my work experience cant be started till i have a CRB. I don't even like kids sheesh!

This year...

Wow ok, sorry for being a slack ass so to speak! hope all is well with my many thousand readers! ;)
What a great few weeks, been jobless and i've never been so busy! From pond building to biking and day festivals to career change- i still maybe broke but at least i'm rocking it in style!

I've been having a great laugh the last few months, this year has gone so well on so many different levels (all except for career wise. HA. ) and its mainly thanks to certain friends who deserve a bit more recognition than i can give right now.

Seen some amazing shows over the last few months, Hedwig and the Angry Inch/Wizz both great productions so highly recommended.
Been broke hasn't stopped my impulsive buying ways... eek! I've got hold of a nice vintage set of milk bottles which i'm hoping to sell along with some carefully sourced vintage items and craft with a website called 'Canary' launched later this year! so go check it out! :D
Career wise i'm volunteering as a clinical photographer, great chance to build up my portfolio so il be sure to keep you posted on how that goes!
the next few weeks are going to keep me busy i'm sure, i want to organise a trip from Landsend to John O'Groats which could be AMAZING!

OKAY... im off- stay safe kids x

RAIN? lets spend some cash...

Love that feeling when you know you have some money coming your way... not that i do, my STUPID job agency just don't pay me properly so its delayed! ANYWAYS, i had to spend some of my hard earned cash on certain summer essentials!!

firstly, Toms: american sizes and advised to try them on without socks because they stretch anyway- don't worry if they feel too tight! free flag too haha
red Toms: 33.00

The Body Shop body butters: moisturisers essential
-Coconut (for dry skin) and an aroma of nostalgic holidays!
-Grapefruit for a fresh morning wake up smell :D

River Island Beach bag: great sor summer, most likely use this as an overnight bag. Got a really good beach feel with brown handles or a white fabric shoulder strap. Great as an all rounder!

enjoy x
