SUH-WEEEEEET


saw prof green at the macbeth down in hoxton on wednesday. it's been ages since i went to any uk hiphop gigs but to be honest i was getting pretty bored of all the preachy politics wank a lot of them always seem to keep banging on about. i really enjoyed this though and although quite a few of the tracks seemed to be backed up by classic samples...erm yeah that one by dead prez...it was an alround enjoyable evening. and now i can't be arsed to crap on talking as if i know a bean about uk hiphop. it was good.

so the rest of the week i've been supposed to be 'working' from home but it's been a task and half. making tea is always a welcome distraction and this morning i baked raisin bran muffins. i like to kid myself that because they have bran in them they're healthy, don't even bother, i saw how much oil and sugar went into them, still they were damn delicious if i do say so myself.

lately i keep thinking about ending this blog, i'm finding myself in the situation where i'm pretty happy with the way things are going in my life now and therefore don't feel the need to escape to the world of blogs as often and which therefore means i never seem to end up replying to the lovely comments i get which i personally think is damn right rude. i dunno, it all seems a bit pointless really and i still suffer from that age old problem of wondering why anyone would be bothered to read this crap and also do i actually want anyone reading this crap...*embarassed confusion*. oh i hate these pity seeking posts so actually i'm going to stop right now!

haha yes i'm rambling today...could it be because i'm avoiding work? errr, too right. anyway, i'm happy it's friday, i'm happy a load of my mates have just moved to clapham, i'm happy i have enough money to pay my bills, and yeah...it's all good. for the first time in a long while i woke up this morning feeling full of energy, from dreaming about surfing. i always wanted to be a surfer...

THEY MAKE GRRRREAT PETS

PhotobucketPhotobucket
say hi to florence and etruria. i went to a friends private viewing in shoreditch yesterday evening and if i had had a spare two grand lying around i blatantly would have spent it on these little puppies. i've decided they would be the perfect solution to my desire to own a little dog. i won't need to walk it, feed it or pick up it's poop, i can just carry it around in my handbag while it looks all cute and stuff.

finders keepers

Photobucket
my mum's holidaying in crete pretending to be shirley valentine and my sis is at some fashion tradeshow in barcelona so i kindly offered to dog sit while they're away which means i am staying all on my lonesome in my mums flat which just happens to be a hop skip and a jump away from selfridges (how i wish i wasn't so fucking poor at the moment). anyway it's not all bad, because while they're away and i'm bored to tears i had the inevitable little snoop in both their wardrobes one evening and i found these little babies which appear to be from primark no less (it's been ages since i went near a shop, let alone primark, so i have no idea whats out there at the moment). luckily my lovely sister is willing to lend them to me for a little while. it's great having a sister the same size when you can't afford to buy clothes, now i just have to see whether my dear mother will mind lending me her birkin for a little while...

today i have a meeting about some freelance work for a graphic designer friend of mine. i'm quite excited. gotta keep that ball rolling...

learn from my mistakes children

Photobucket
see what happens when you try and iron your favourite supersoft seethru black aa vest, when it specifically says on the label "do not iron". i don't know what i was thinking...still, isn't holey stuff fashionable at the moment? i don't even know anymore...

I don't think so sunny jim

i know, it's been a fu@king long time, but today's the last day of my internship and the first time i've had a chance to even think about posting. i have to say it's been a wicked two months and i'm starting to feel a lot more like myself again and with the added bonus of feeling like i might actually be able to accomplish something worthwhile. for now let's just say i'm going to be wrapping things up with my old job situation this month.
Photobucket
yesterday i spent a blissful afternoon in hyde park drinking pear cider, watching crystal castles, the foals and um...blur. i can't say i was always a massive fan even though i've always liked them but i'm so glad we got tickets because to be fair they smashed it and i had another of the many 'best times' i've had in the last 2 months. we even crossed paths with alice glass from crystal castles and convinced her to take a photo with us after realising that we didn't have a pen she could sign my friends breasts with. actually i think she might've been a little scared of us? it was ridiculously hot aswell but i'm loving not feeling the need to throw on any extra layers the second the sun goes down...also the sunset...it was beautiful, and as blur played beetlebum i'd forgotten how that song reminded me so much of my friend tom, who was murdered several years ago when he was traveling in china, and i was brought to tears because he was one of the loveliest people you could ever hope to meet and the whole moment caught me by surprise but in a nice way even though it's actually a pretty sad thing - tom r.i.p.
Photobucket
anyway, i still have more things to tell so posting should start to get a little more regular from now on i hope and i will also finally get a chance to catch up on what everyone else has been up to.
x x thanks for coming back xx

thank fuck it's friday! nice hairrrrr.......

Photobucket

i'm in a super good mood today, it's friday, the sun is shining and it's my last day in the office! i forgot to say thanks for all the really supportive comments from everyone about the internship, it actually means a lot and as you can probably tell, i'm still reeeeeally excited.

tomorrow morning we're going to look at a new flat. i'm really hoping it's going to be a trillion times nicer than the one we veiwed last week in hoxton which was no bigger than a shoe box and surrounded by ickyness...shame really because we have friends up that way and there are a lot of great places to go out. anyway we'll see, we really need a bigger place which is hard to find in london when you're on a budget.

i love the way this model's hair has been braided across her forehead (slightly neverending story). unfortunately i don't think i'm skilled enough in the hair department to do this myself and if i did i'd probably end up looking ridiculous anyway. sometimes you just gotta know when to hold back.

catch up catch up...jerk off losers & the problem with twitter

Photobucket


Photobucket



erm...so where the fuck have i been recently? watching countless episodes of "the hills" via surfthechannel and not much else really. and just to get this off my chest...spencer 'pratt', how fucking apt, i've never known a bigger prize twat. ha! so yeah, i have to be honest and say i really haven't felt like blogging lately and haven't really been reading many blogs either. i guess i've just been in a blogging rut and suprisingly for me, busy with other things.

i did decide however, to see what little gems twitter might have to offer. kinda like blogging on the go in little bursts actually sounds ideal. unfortunately after setting up my account i was disappointed to learn that you can only recieve updates to your mobile if you're with vodafone?? what's the fucking point in that? i do have a blackberry for work and was trying to download the twitterberry app but looks like work have blocked third party apps. yeah it actually sounds like i know what i'm talking about using all this technical jargon but i can promise you i really don't have a clue. so anyway, for now twitter is a no go.

i have some other little ideas that i have yet to put into action, like the tumblr account where i'll be posting pictures of my artwork but apart from that...only 2 more days to go till i don't have to be stuck in this crappy little office...i can not wait!

regarding todays pictures...mccauley culkin, such a beautiful freak and as for the girls get up...this is the sort of thing i'd like to be floating around in all summer, i'd prob change the manky flip flops for my all saints fringed ankle boots though...

and my final words for today...thank you so much to claire for the award (although i'm sure i don't deserve it recently for being so slack) it's super cute just like her and when i get the time next week to catch up on all my fav blogs i'll be passing it on...

breath again

Photobucket
apologies for my recent cryptic-ness but i didn't want to jinx anything. i'm literally dancing on tables right now, (well in my head anyway...it probably wouldn't be too appropriate in my crap office) because i've been offered a design internship at a gallery/venue type place for a couple of months. i don't know if i'm too old to be doing this sort of thing and i'm basically going to be skint as for two months which is going to suck big time but i'm well excited at the prospect of being able to do something a little more creative than fill in data infront of a computer all day on a hell hole industrial estate, and maybe if i'm a little bit lucky and can make the most out of the situation then something even better will come if it. ok i don't wanna get my hopes up or as i said before...jinx anything, for now i'm just gonna enjoy the moment and get on with it.

a whole 15 minutes??

Photobucket


what seems like ages ago now, i sent in a piece of work to be part of something called mail me art. it was so long ago i'd pretty much forgotten about it, until today when i received an email in my mailbox to tell me that my work would be part of the exhibition starting tomorrow and that it would be great if i could make it along to the opening night... oh go on then...

so if anyone fancies coming down to take a look i reckon there will be whole load of wicked art to look at, and buy if you're feeling a bit flush.

the venue>>>

Red Gate Gallery 209a
Coldharbour Lane,
London. SW9 8RU. UK

the time>>>

Friday 3rd April 6pm - 11pm

if anything at least there should be some free beer.

i sang stupid made up songs on the way to work

Photobucket
i don't know what it is, today has been one of those days where i just feel like hiding from the world and looking after myself. i hate having responsabilities and having to do things i don't want to. i know some people think we always have a choice but sometimes none of the options seem to be any better that what you've already got.

dinner last night was lovely though...and i think she liked her present. i also realised today that it's easter next weekend which means friday and monday off work. can't wait...i hope we get some sunshine.

more cake

PhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucket
today is my little sister's birthday, so there was a little pre-celebration do somewhere in camden on saturday and a whole lot more cake...yes it's pretty much all i hate all weekend and probably why i feel so hideous right now. still i'm looking forward to dinner tonight and really hoping she likes her present.

I ATE MY FOOD PORN (then felt like a fatty and gave the rest to my sister)

Photobucket
basically all week i was dreaming about making these cupcakes. for some reason i have become totally obsessed. these babies are vanilla cake with rose flavoured buttercream, and if i may say so myself...were the yummiest i've ever tasted. i still can't believe how much butter and suger went into making them...i swear i could feel my thighs throbbing/expanding after just one bite!

i blame pamela love

PhotobucketPhotobucket
Photobucket
for my recent facination with bird skulls??

skinny girls posting food porn piss me off

just sayin...

the full moon makes me mental

last night i went to covent garden for the lightning seeds album launch. er correction...i went to drink the free booze and munch on the free canapes, i seriously couldn't give a crap about their new album, or any of their albums for that matter. while standing around waiting for something to happen i did a little bit of people watching, and mental slagging off. i couldn't help imagining that most of the people there were similar to the main character in john niven's book kill your friends (a chang-ed up arsehole of an a & r guy), especially the jean's and suit jacket wearing guy standing in front of me who knowingly nodded his head to the beat throughout the 5 song set in a desperate attempt to show he was 'down with the kids' but who on closer inspection was botoxed up to the max. he was freaking me out so much i couldn't stop staring at him and consequently made my husband promise he would never go down the botox path. it looks so wrong, i really hope i can grow old gracefully but there's a good chance i may cave in at some point...

also, i have never seen so many flat caps in one place. can anyone explain this fashion to me? what does it mean? i just don't understand.

anyway, all in all we achieved our goal of free mid-week drunkenness with the added bonus of an argument on the way home for good measure, which resulted in me telling my husband he would have to sleep on the sofa and me stealing all the blankets/pillows while he was in the bathroom and locking them plus myself in the bedroom. unfortunately to my disgust and frustration he had the quick thinking to get the sleeping bag from the car which he rubbed in my face by laughing satisfactorily to himself just loud enough for me to hear. bastard.

actually it was all forgotten by this morning and we had a good laugh about it...well he had a good laugh at my expense, he finds my female strops hilarious.

gutted last night was the last episode of skins.

you want to be like PARIS HILTON?

Photobucket
Photobucket
yeah...so this was my husbands response when i announced the other day that i wanted a little dog for some companionship, as if everyone in the world who owns a tiny dog is desperate to be like paris. i just think it would be easier to look after in our small london flat and i think these boston terriers are suuuuper cute. alas it won't be happening anyway, it would be far too cruel to leave such a little thing on it's own all day while we are both at work.

when the WOLVES come out

PhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucket
i have developed a recent obsession with wolves, there's something powerful yet sad about the look in their eyes but whatever it is is beyond beautiful. i'm now looking for the perfect ring.
PhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucket

did you know when they mate they get locked together for half an hour at least! this cheeky wolf i was watching on a wildlife program the other day had sneaked into another pack and tried to secretly shag one of the females. when he got caught red pawed by the head of the pack he couldn't get away poor thing, it was pretty funny to watch.

at the time it must've seemed like a good idea

Photobucket
on saturday my good friends will and ben celebrated their birthday which meant drinking, drinking and more drinking. i decided to shun the beer and stick to cocktails in a bid make my evening seem a little classier than it actually was, needless to say i spent the entire day in bed yesterday watching movies and stuffing myself with all the carbs i'd been denying myself throughout the week, but i was glad to see that there was still a little change left in my wallet after the nights festivities. upon checking my bank account first thing this morning at work i struggled to figure out why there wasn't as much skrilla in there as i thought there should've been. i found the receipt in my bag later today that says the large round of cocktails was on me...apparently. i can't believe I didn't even remember and that i can't afford the silver sequin blazer on topshop's website this morning. life is so unfair when you're a shallow, materialistic, amaretto sour guzzler.

todays one's a goodie

SAGITTARIUS - November 23rd - December 21st

Achieving a cherished hope isn't as fanciful as someone is telling you it is. You're letting them influence your thinking. Your creative muscles will grow weak and waste away if you don't flex them soon. Believe in your power to realise your dreams and look for ways to make things happen. Your fortunes could change for the better and all because of your determination not to allow the negativity that's currently around you, thwart you.

i love horoscopes that make you feel just that little bit better about your wretched self and make you believe a little more that you're feelings are justified. even though in the end they usually turn out to be bull...

grade zero

Photobucket
this girl almost makes me want to shave all my hair off again. when it comes to hair i'm either all (very long) or nothing (shaved) as long as i don't have to do too much with it. however as much as i loved it at the time, that growing out stage was hell, and after all the crap i've put my hair through over the years, i kinda like having it natural looking.

i hate feet but i <3 baths

hope everyone is having a good weekend. i'm up way too early on a saturday after a late running boozy pub dinner last night with lovely people lucy and joseph. lucy and i decided we should arrange a breakfast date which for some reason i'm quite excited about. people always meet up in the evening but never in the morning it seems. breakfast is my favourite meal of the day.
