The Non-Social Media

From the outside blogging might look like that most social hobby (and by extension job for some) but in reality the act of blogging is a solitary one. You sit home photographing, testing, writing.. rarely with company, it’s really only the parties and events that add that element and if you don’t participate then it [...]

spring wish list

Spring Watch

It’s wishlist time again, I failed the no buy February miserably but I did pretty well to avoid the shops. Unfortunately online shopping is too much of a temptation.. here’s what’s tempting me for the coming month. Since I saw the tshirt version of this sweatshirt on galmeetsglam I wanted it so when I saw [...]

NYC Photo Diary – Day 5

Above is a snapshot of our last day in the city, there are so many things we decided not to do because it was so cold we knew we’d just be miserable. Last time we were there it was the same time of year but we were not as central so we had no choice [...]

We all know how much a relationship can COST you.. in the beginning there may be elaborate dates, hotel rooms and gifts but once the dust has settled did you know that being 1 of 2 can actually SAVE you money? I’m sure my husband would disagree but the below shows that discounts you could [...]

NYC Photo Diary – Day 4

Day 4 was our wedding anniversary so we wanted to amp it up a little, breakfast at the 30 Rock, Lunch at The Plaza and cocktails with dinner. I even found somewhere that sold individual cakes that yes were still way too big but affordable enough that I could justify one for just the two [...]

NYC Photo Diary – Day 3

The 3rd Day was the most comfortable walking around weather so of course we did the most walking around. We found Carries stoop (finally, after 3 visits), I had a shopping appointment at Bauble Bar (which I’ll talk about in another post) and we went to Serendipity to sample their famous Frozen Hot Chocolate. It’s [...]

NYC Photo Diary – Day 2

Can you believe this was our 3rd trip to New York and the 1st time we braved the subway? If I took only one thing away from this visit that I would pass along to someone else it would be to make use of this very inexpensive transport system. It’s nowhere near as complicated as [...]

No Buy February

Okay so technically I have already been shopping this month but it was my BIRTHDAY yesterday, so that can’t count, right? After our serious spree in New York last week I felt like a little spending break might be necessary but given the jubilations I didn’t want to start from the 1st of the month [...]

Return Of The Filofax

You heard me.. Filofax! I don’t know how I’ve survived so long without one! In my late teens/early twenties I had a knock off version that never left my side, I kept my whole life in that thing and somewhere in my house it’s hiding with my National Insurance card safely tucked in it’s inside [...]

Monday, Monday #3 (On A Tuesday #1)

I have a feeling that this wont be my only Monday, Monday on a Tuesday but in fairness I had major internet difficulties yesterday (as in I didn’t have any) so it wasn’t that I forgot much as I was so frustrated that I had no choice but to play Sims during Milo’s nap time [...]
