Life Lately

Sooo...I had a little sabbatical from blogging last month as I concentrated on getting a new job and trying to sort out my house. Thank you to all of you who kept visiting my little slice of the world wide web and apologies for not posting more regularly. Everything has settled down a bit now so I should be back on track this month.
Last month was exciting/scary as I found myself handing in my notice and heading for pastures new. As a result I ended up going for quite regular little drinky poos with my team as I tried to make the most of them before leaving. The hardest part of leaving was saying goodbye to my team - they are the best!
Part of my lack of blogging came from a real case of writer's block. I got stuck in a no-blogging rut and any idea I was coming up with just seemed shit (excuse my French). I would rather just not blog for a while than spew out some rubbish. Quality over quantity and all that jazz! So instead of getting stressed and over-analysing my writer's block I decided to create in other ways. Namely, by doing some easy peasy song lyric pics as above. The paradise one is now framed and sitting proudly on my shelves. The idea for these came from my new addiction: Pinterest. I am blinkin' obsessed with it!
As well as pinning like a mad woman I have thrown myself into my other blog. The lovely Jo and I have been lucky enough to win a couple of really good prizes recently. We won the Barry M winter collection which was amazing and then a whole heap of Rimmel goodies. I can't list all of the things we won as there was so much stuff but watch this space for reviews. 
I am so sad to have left my lovely team and just wanted to say a mahoosive thank you to them for my leaving goodies. When asked what I wanted I kind of jokingly mentioned the Diptyque Feu de Bois candle, not really thinking they would get it as it's too much but they did! They also got me a lovely Tai horseshoe bracelet for good luck. The beautiful free spirit ALM gots me some additional goodies which was extremely thoughtful and generous: my fave Moleskine notebook, an E&J decoration for the house, and a little bottle of Bioderma's Solution Micellaire. Words cannot express how grateful I am to them all. 

So there you have a little round up of what I have been up to in November. Mainly crying about leaving my job while pinning sad quotes! 

Onwards and upwards, more regular posting will ensue this month. Soz for leaving you to your own devices for a month but I'm back! xxx


  1. Leaving one job to go to a new one can be hard. I still miss some of the people from my last place but y'know, keep moving forward and all that. Glad you're back blogging:-) Laters lady, Nina


    1. Thanks! It is hard but I'm sure I'll make it through! My new team have been very welcoming which is lovely. Trying to get back to blogging regularly but that's difficult too:/ xxx
