I Haven't Forgotten You Yet.....

Hello to everyone who still pass this space!  I don't know if anyone really cared or noticed my absence ( I like to think someone did lol)
Its been awhile, a lot has happened, a lot hasn't! I have been soo uninspired lately I haven't been motivated to continue my blog which is bad bad bad! I have kept up with all the wonderful blogs out there though!

Although I wouldn't say this entry was a come back, I would say its just a little courtesy call to say I do intend to continue this work in progress.  I don't know if that's good news or not, but its news all the same.
As this is the season to be stressed I don't plan on getting back into the swing of things until the new year, So keep your eyes peeled people, I promise I won't disappoint you!

Thank you all for reading, I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! xoxo

What Are The Dating Rules

There have always been rules to dating like your not supposed to call first, or not kiss on the first date etc etc
Do you still follow rules in 2011? To be honest i don't think i ever knew the dating do's and don'ts maybe that's the reason my dates have never been successful? These days as i creep closer to 30 i don't feel inclined to follow any rules i just go with what feels right!

So after exchanging phone numbers with my "Ex Marine" we have been non stop texting everyday. The first day we exchanged numbers we texted constantly for 10 hrs (and i do not exaggerate) Why text i hear you say! Well at the time i was sick with the flu so i told him not to call me because i didn't want him to think i was really a dude and scare him off! After that its just been the way we communicate. So after 3 weeks of constant texting (my poor thumb) we decided to make a date.

I haven't been on a date for ages, it was nice to get spruced up and look your best knowing romance was possibly in the air. I was so nervous, so nervous i felt sick!  I haven't felt like that in forever! All i kept thinking was please look like your picture. It was such a relief when i saw him, he was just as cute as his picture, plus he was just as nervous as me.
We decided to go for for a drink first to relax. There were a few silences but that was just down to nerves, after the drinks had set in we became more relaxed. He was a total gentleman very sweet. I knew i definitely liked him. So when we got to the end of our date i knew he was gonna get a goodnight kiss. After 10 mins of smooching outside the train station like a school girl we said goodbye. Did i mention it was the best kiss I've had in a long time? We hadn't been out of each other sight for 10 mins and we were back to texting. 
I can safely say this one looks like a keeper, i try to keep myself level headed but it is hard. So this time I'm just gonna go with the flow. Go with what feels right no more rules! Fingers crossed it will pay off. xoxo

R.I.P Amy Winehouse

Yesterday Amy Winehouse was found dead in her north London flat. At only 27 she lived a wild life, totally destructive. My condolence's go out to her family! It is such a shame she was never able to fight her demons because she had such a talent!

I would like to remember her when she first came out healthy, strong. I will forever love her album Frank! R.I.P xoxo

Online Dating Causes Depression

Sometimes I wonder why I do it to myself! I joined another dating website, one that doesn't ask you for your account number before you can see what your potential love interests look like! This one is for BBW (big beautiful women)
I'm still not sure what my view is completely on sites like these that just aim for chubby chasers (man i hate that word "chubby chaser" but I'll use it anyway)  On one hand I appreciate it because for once I don't have to feel apologetic for being full figured, and before you start on me I am NOT apologetic for my excess curves, its just that when you sign up for these dating sites you can't help but feel like you don't belong with the "beautiful" people Its just marketed for the young, thin, and beautiful! (even though the reality is different) I am sure there is even a dating website just for good looking people, apparently when you submit your profile and pic if you don't fit that bracket your out!
I'm not even mad at that! So I comfortably submit my pic and write a brief description trying to be humorous of course. Then i start my search for those men who want me just the way i am! Because I'm mentally challenged (in a rush, eager, bordering desperate) I forget to narrow my search down to people in the same country never mind city! And Yes I am blown away by the men looking good enough to eat i am starting to picture myself running through a meadow holding hands with my potential husband in slow motion of course! Then suddenly my brain catches up with itself and i notice all these hotties that LIKE ME JUST THE WAY I AM are not even in my reach! ARRRGGGHHHHHH! 
So I go back to my search box and type in London and hit the enter button, and after just being spoiled by 162 pages it is then narrowed down to 7!
slightly disappointed by the search results I go through the motions and with each page that passes me by I start to feel depressed by the chubby chasers on offer to me!  In the 7 pages I think about 5 people look somewhat attractive and within my age range! How depressing is that! After that I turned off my computer as it was late and  i thought that could possible cloud my judgement!

New Day, New Me!
 I woke up thinking maybe I was being a little harsh and I would start my search again maybe even send someone a smile.
So as I check my daily emails I find a few notifications saying I've been sent a few smiles (smiles are like winks, or a nudge to let someone know you like what you see)
The first smile is from some buffed out dude who looks quite attractive, first thing i think is maybe i was tired last night! I click on his profile and nearly choke on my spit when I flick through his pics, he had one pic where he was running towards the camera on the beach wearing canary yellow briefs that look suspiciously like man thongs! To add further insult when i read what he wrote i wanted to kick him in the mouth! He is the biggest tool ever, "P.S. I am told that I m a curves pleaser" has to be the best part!

I have an email from a guy who obviously didn't read my profile when i stated my age range, 28 and 47 are not a good mix. This guy also feels the need to write me an essay about himself, and only himself! He doesn't even ask me anything! Then he goes on to say how he isn't religious because he has had relationships with men! Now don't get me wrong i have no problems with same sex relationships, love is love, but call me old fashioned i didn't think that was appropriate for a first email!
Anyway as I click onto the next admirer I sigh with relief as this guy looks cute ( i know pictures can be deceiving) he sounds relatively normal so i send him a smile back. A few minutes later i get an email back asking how I'm doing etc. So far this email conversation seems to be going well ( I'm not getting overly excited i know how these things can go down) he's an ex marine, lives not too far, he is saying the right things right now! I might just go on a date to see if he is who he says he is. Is it possible to find your perfect match on dating websites? What do you think? xoxo

Celebration Day In London Pt 2

Women's toilets at Lab Bar

This shop had the best statement jewelery

These looked so yummy, they are lucky they were closed!

sneak peak of stage for Ghost Stories

Feast fit for a king

I had the best day, so much so I'm already planning my next day out for next week on my day off, I'm thinking of going to the theatre to see Woman in Black, its also meant to be a little scary! I have a thing for all thing supernatural if you haven't guessed!

On a separate note is anybody having problems when posting comments on blogs? Because for some unknown reason whether signed in or not i can't leave comments on blogs which is utterly frustrating! So i just want you to know i am checking out your blogs i just can't comment! xoxo

Celebration Day in London Pt 1

It was the T.F.B's birthday yesterday, she turned a ripe ole 27! We had a jam packed day, starting off with afternoon tea at Tophams hotel in Belgravia, followed by afternoon cocktails at Lab my favourite bar, if cocktails are your thing then i highly recommend it! Afterwards we decided to walk around London like true tourists, its funny how you can live somewhere all your life and never really explore it! I adore London and its quirky stores and hidden backstreets full of history and character!
Then we went to the theatre to see Ghost Stories which i enjoyed, i wont really spoil it for you just in case you wanna see it,but i will say this it made me jump!
After an 1hr 30mins of fright i was starving  so we went and had the best burger at Byron Burger, Yum! We ended with more cocktails at Bar Rumba and headed off home totally knackered! Now for the pics....

These two ladies are the best, we live together, this is family!

now you see it

now you don't

To be continued......

Night Out-80's vs 90's

I thought i would start of by apologising for the lack of photos in this post, but i thought something was better than nothing!
After a peaceful Saturday it all went topsy turvey by time the evening hit! Why is it that one minute you have all the time in the world then all of a sudden you have 5 minutes to get ready! So my plans to have a few drinks and take a few pics went out the window, i had to grab my camera and go!

So me and the T.F.B had a great time, me in my 90's inspired outfit and her in an 80's inspired outfit which i was digging! We didn't really get a chance to take pics last night so you will have to be satisfied with this...

The venue was an Idian Bar and Restuarant which was modern and trendy! I had a few drinks, got a little merry and danced my arse off! I will definately be looking out for the next one!

I have been thinking about doing vlogs about life situations, whatever is on my mind, hopefully the T.F.B will help me out and it will be a joint effort! We talk a lot about nothing so you should hear us ramble when we have something to say, its entertaining! So i will keep you posted about that, maybe you can give me some suggestions on topics close to your heart? We'll see how it goes these things take time! xoxo

Tribal vs Aztec

Hello my lovelies! Just thought i would do a quick post as i am sitting twiddling my fingers until my beautification begins.

Tonight is my 80's vs 90's party which i am looking forward to, you can't go wrong with good music, good company and a drink or two!

So remember my previous post when i talked about this event and said i was basing my 90's inspired outfit around this Aztec print vest...
Well there has been a change of plans and thanks to Forever 21 i have decided to go with this Tribal print dress...

I felt this was more appropriate for my 90's vision and i do remember a lot of tribal infused prints back in the day. Well 90's or not i am wearing it!

This is my FIRST purchase from Forever21 and i am pleasantly surprised, for some reason i expected poorer quality. I love the print and the fit was spot on which was a stroke of luck on my part, i decided to go with 2XL. I also ordered the sheer black maxi skirt which i can't wait to do an OOTD with. Talking about OOTD i know its been awhile but hopefully i will have something for you soon, i plan to get the T.F.B to take a picture of my outfit tonight which i can share with you all tomorrow! Until then beautiful people enjoy the rest of your Saturday! xoxo

90's Fashion in 2011

When i remember the good old 90's i remember a lot of denim, crop tops, knee high socks, floral skirts, crazy prints, and leather jackets! That was my wardrobe anyway!
The reason for this post is research, I have an 80's vs 90's party in 2 weeks time, and i am not sure which fashion road to take, here's hoping you readers might lend me a helping hand!

I was born in 82 so i can't remember the fashion of the 80's which is why i have opted to take the 90's high road. But what do i wear?
I figure i can either go baggy  like T.L.C
Sassy with attitude like Salt ans Pepper
Or figure hugging like Mariah
Either way i like all elements, but when i look in my wardrobe i am blank! what can i say my imagination is lost with my vision, all i know is i want to be comfortable and enjoy myself which means no heels woo hoo! lol Don't get me wrong i do love heels but i don't think i can do the running man in them!

So i have picked out a piece to wear and i am somehow gonna  bring all three elements to it!
Once again Dorothy Perkins is taking over the show for me right now, i have purchased this Aztec print vest (delivery man needs to hurry up)

It reminds me of some of the funky print back in the 90's like...
So i plan on a denim shirt worn open over it (that's as baggy as i get) a black mini skirt with tights(figure hugging)  and footwear has to be some high tops, and a large gold style chain! (i think that covers the sassy with attitude part)
Of course this sounds good but i need to put it on to see if it really works! What do you think? what were your favourite trends of the 90's? xoxo

Skirt-Gasms at D.P

I am loving Dorothy Perkins at the moment with their cute little dresses and skirts! All though i have told myself i can not afford to buy new clothes at the moment i can't deny that i am tempted! We'll see how i get on with that!
I've been checking out Asos recently and nothing is jumping out at me, also is it me or are they getting a little more expensive? Usually i find D.P more pricey at times but comparing the two i found Asos to be more costly!

So lately i have been thinking about my blog and what i want it to become, right now it is about nothing specific although it does tend to center more around clothes, which is ok of course, i do love clothes and besides its through reading fatshion blogs which inspired me to start mine. I am just finding it hard to keep my blog updated with OOTD pics which is partly because 1) i work most days in my uniform 2) i have no camera at the moment 3) i am lazy and forgetful.  Sometimes i think without the outfit pics there is no blog! So i've decided i want to broaden my blog, i don't want to lose the followers i have by going completely off topic but there is a lot more to me then what i wear and i want to share all my passions with you! (if you let me) Its gonna take some time to find direction but bear with me! xoxo
