You know what really grinds my gears.....ok, I realise I'm not Peter Griffin (Family Guy fans will get that one lol). I really don't understand why gorgeous women wear beautiful suits and dresses to work with big ol' dusty grey trainers. I totally understand the need for comfort and I even understand the urge to power walk to the office but come on ladies, let's not forget about style. If it's comfort you're after why not wear a pair of ballerina's? They actually look good with dresses and suits too believe it or not. Trainers with dresses, skirts or anythig other than jeans and sports wear, is totally unacceptable.
This entry is in memory of a dear friend who also found this fashion a bit weird. We would have endlessly long debates on the subject. RIP D xxx
I’m going to make a bold statement! Are you ready...? I love Keeping up with the Kardashians!!! Honestly I do and I’ve found over the years that many people share my healthy obsession with the family but like me, they kind of keep it under wraps. I’ve also found that people who don’t like the Kardashians, think it’s okay to belittle those of us who do but I’m sorry that’s just not kool (see what I did there 😉).
Why do you love the Kardashians I hear you cry. Well personally I work in a very tense environment and to be honest, before I started my current job 6 years ago, I had never even watched the Kardashians. One of my peers was totally in to Kim K and the rest of the family and because of her, I thought I’d have a little watch and you know what....I’ve never looked back. If you’re highly stressed about something or work in an intense environment like myself, sometimes you just need a break and that break can take many forms. Reading, meditating, writing, working out, watching tv; an…
My absolute favourite piece of furniture at the moment is my custom made dining table.
I’ve talked about getting a dining table for about three years and last year I finally got this beauty. Massive thank you to Blacker and Oak who custom made this for me. Check them out on Instagram (link below) and Etsy (search Blacker and Oak). Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/blackerandoak
How many of you have seen the new CBeebies children's programme Rastamouse? It features a Jamaican Rastafarian mouse and his crew of 2 (Scratchy and Zooma) aka The Easy Crew. They solve mysteries in their native Mouseland. Now when I first saw this I thought it was hilarious. Hearing these characters speaking patois on a children's programme was amazing to me and a sign of how far we had come in this country, accepting and promoting diversity. At the same time I knew it would only be a matter of time before the complaints came in. I could just hear hordes of parents saying "but this isn't teaching the children to speak real English", "I don't want my child pretending to be a gangster" (because believe it or not there is a blinged up gangster mouse on the show and he may not be behaving like a gangster but he is dressed as and speaks like one).
It may sound like I don't approve of the show, don't get me wrong I actually like it. The thing…
