Today I spent my day off work sitting in a small room with no windows… yep you read that right! However, there is a reasonable explanation and that was a 12 hour drumming marathon being played by Glenn. He came up with the crazy idea to raise money for the Multiple Sclerosis Society, a cause that is very dear to him – and he did it! Beat MS was a whole 12 hours, 9am-9pm, of drumming along with other musicians and friends. I am very proud right now! And if you think it’s amazing too, you can donate RIGHT HERE! He’s already smashed his target but more donations are more than welcome!
Wearing: Topshop jumper, Primark skirt, Blowfish wedges, Topshop tights and old scarf.
EAT – Pancakes with bacon (or eggs if you are vegetarian!) with lots of maple syrup and a honeycomb hot chocolate and a skinny black forest mocha with lemon cake.
WEAR – a cute outfit and take a walk into town with your loved one! (Topshop coat, River Island top and shorts and Primark shoes.)
BUY - A new handbag from BHS, a cute umbrella from Primark (which matches the lining of said new bag!) and a big pot of sweets!
ORGANISE – Make a to-do list, plan, schedule, or a wish list. I did mine on my new phone – a Samsung Galaxy Note 2!
BAKE – some yummy muffins!
PHOTOGRAPH – Your pets because you will never have enough cute pictures of them!
RELAX – and enjoy a latte (I made mine with my Tassimo T20 machine) or a yummy fruit cider. (Also how cute is that card?!)
P.S. My graze box arrived today! I loved them the first time round so it’s fun receiving them again!
Well it’s that time again where we say goodbye to one year and a big hello to a new one! 2012 has been a good year for me; I’ve started a new job, moved house and planned lots for my wedding! 2013 is looking like a good one too… if only for the reason that I’m getting married in this year! I really am looking forward to the next 12 months and everything that is coming with it!
here’s a little look at some of my outfits from 2012! As you can see from the array of scarves, coats and tights in the ones above, summer was pretty much non-existent, so I’m hoping for a good summer in 2013, especially around the end of August for our wedding day!
My new years resolutions are as follows:
- Eat healthier and start exercising so I fit into my wedding dress
- Start a new beauty regime – I’m particularly bad at cleaning, moisturising and all that stuff!
What are yours and what are you looking forward to in 2013? Happy New Year!
So, we are on the other side of Christmas, and I can honestly say it has been the best on so far! Glenn and I started off at home, opening presents to one another and having a glass of bucks fizz, before heading to his mums for Christmas dinner. We then moved on to my parents house where we have plenty of party food and played an obligatory game of scrabble! Boxing day consisted of spending the day with my parents and sister, enjoying another Christmas dinner – having lots of families to visit really does pay off in the food department! We then spent the evening at Glenn’s dads before heading back home. I received lots of lovely gifts which I will share soon, but for now here is a look at my Christmas – through the lens of my new camera!
Christmas morning bucks fizz – my new Frankie 2013 diary! – Charlie opening his presents – Glenny opening presents – The first of two Christmas roasts – Snuggling my little dog, Candie – The second installment of food – Glenn and I – Doing the biggest crossword with the family – Me with my parents.
I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!
By the time you read this it will be Christmas Day! I can’t explain how excited I get about Christmas and everything that comes with it – food, family, presents and time off! My first Christmas as a full time worker means I have to work Christmas Eve, but I have Christmas Day and Boxing Day off, so I am looking forward to lots of festivities!
On Saturday, Glenn and I celebrated our 5 year anniversary! I had my work Christmas meal in the evening so we went out for a meal on Sunday to a lovely local Italian restaurant. Christmas Eve marks 8 months until we get married – so excited!
