I'm new to your blog and I'm currently loving it. You're sooo pretty! And you're house, really beautiful! I want to ask, who are you living with in your new house? :)
Welcome along, and thank you very much! I live with my wonderful boyfriend, we brought our house about eight months ago. After three months of very hard work restoring it we moved in and have been the happiest of happy ever since! ♥
I love your blog! It's a wonderful mix of personal and everything else! I'd love to come live in the UK someday ^^... May I ask what it is that you do (as in work-wise)? My parents keep telling me its ridiculous to try and move to the UK when jobs are scarce and I'd be all by my lonesome self. I can't imagine myself anywhere else, though, so any motivation/inspiration I can get is great! :D
Aww thank you very much!
England is a lovely place to live, i always miss it whenever i go away. It’s true that jobs are scarce at the moment, but there are jobs out there- i work in recruitment so i should know! I think as long as you have the right skills for the sector you wish to get into then you will always find something. Don’t be afraid to put yourself out there.
Your parents are just looking out for you, it’s their job! Even if you just come over here for a few months you’ll soon see if it’s going to be right for you. If it’s where you truly want to be you’ll find a way to make it work, and i’m sure you won’t be lonely for long ♥
Hey tumblrinos, i’m very pleased to announce that i am now working with Romwe - a great online fashion store who have so many wonderful pieces both vintage and new. They ship worldwide too…for free, i can’t wait for my items to arrive!
I’m off to an aqua class with mum this week on my mission to get fit!
Seeing as i only own pretty little bikinis i had to wander into town today and find a proper swimsuit. As it turns out, my town only has one of these for sale under about £30 and it is the most horrid piece of clothing you have ever seen…i actually don’t think i could look more like a dork.
I’ve recently installed Disqus on my blog to help me reply to all your lovely comments and notes and it’s really handy. But I just wondered if anyone could jiggle about with my theme’s HTML code to remove the comment count on the front of my blog – where it says the date and number of Disqus comments each post has received.
If any of you smartypants followers can help I’d be forever grateful…trying to figure it out is giving me a headache! Feel free to comment on here or drop me a message.
Ive just stumbled upon your blog. I found it instantly wonderful and captivating! It's so fresh, vibrant, and flavorful! I love the fashion and just the brightness of seeing a happy photograph. From your newest follower <3
Gosh, thank you very much! What a wonderful message to wake up to in the morning ♥
I just found your blog and your house is the most gorgeous thing I have ever seen! :) x
Goodness me, thank you so much! We are both very proud of it, and i am forever in awe of just how talented my boyfriend is to have transformed it into our dream home in just a few months – i’m one lucky girl!
Thank you for following, it’s so lovely to have you ♥
Your bunnies are absolutely adorable <3 Would you say there's a difference between the personality of breeds (I noticed you had two lops)? And what should one expect from bunny ownership?
Thank you very much, i think so too! Colin & Crumble are both English Lops which are the larger of the Lop breeds. They’re very inquisitive and quite brave with people - they will often just hop on over to you and nudge your hand until you give them attention! You tend to find that each rabbit is different and has it’s own personality, Colin is certainly the most dominant of my two.
They are very loving creatures but you will need to earn their trust first, so don’t expect to be able to kiss and cuddle them as soon as you get them! But once they do trust you they’ll love you forever ♥
Ocado delivery is put away, wine is cooling in the fridge and the Chinese takeaway menu is out…we’re ready for a nice night in with the telly and lots of cuddles!
We’ve got quite a bit going on this weekend - installing dishwashers, an open day at one of the bf’s houses for sale, eating out and getting Sky+! I’ve already got a list of programmes to record as soon as it’s plugged in (and a pile of plates to go in the dishwasher as soon as that’s plugged in!)
I hope you’ve all got lovely plans for the weekend!
Mums taken me in tonight and is feeding me a tasty dinner as the boyfriend is out! Then she’s off to her fancy gym and dragging me with her….not as fun! I am tempted to just sit in the outdoor hot tub instead of sweating away on the treadmill!!
At least we’ll earn our wine later with the One Tree Hill gang! :)
Hi :3 I was just wondering, how do you do your makeup? what products do you use, and how do you apply it on? any tips for natural looking make up? I love how you do your makeup, it looks flawless and natural! <3
Gosh thank you, i’m certainly no a make-up expert by any means! I’ve recently switched foundation actually from Clinique’s Superbalanced to Estée Lauder’s Double Wear and i’m really happy with it. My Clinique foundation was great but i find that the Double Wear gives better coverage and lasts a full day at work or a long night out!
I also find that using a foundation brush works best even if you’re in a rush - i always end up using so much more foundation if i do it by hand too so this way it lasts longer too. During the day i don’t tend to wear a lot of eye make-up just some liquid eye liner and mascara really, and i fill in my eyebrows a little if i have time.
I have no idea how to describe drawing eye liner and eyebrows, but to be honest most days they’re both pretty wonky! Because i’m so pale i use a pale colour blush and try not to use too much as it can look a bit like war paint if it’s too strong or not blended well enough.
Just remember to always get your foundation matched a professional and that less is more - we still want to see that beautiful face underneath ♥
They look amazing! Do you happen to have the recipe handy? We’re having a bake sale tomorrow and Thursday to raise money for my musical theatre society, and I think these would go down a treat! x
They were tasty with some butter cream frosting, but i can’t help but be a little disappointed by them as they were meant to be red velvet! I used this recipe but i’m still looking for one that yields a stronger colour ♥
I’m making curry for nine lovely people this evening to celebrate a friend’s birthday! He didn’t want a fuss so instead of going out to party we’re having a ‘quiet’ night in instead. Good food, good wine and lots of music and wii games!
But i can’t let a birthday slip by un-noticed so there may be a few special surprises in the form of freshly baked cupcakes and fizz - everyone deserves a celebration for their birthday, no matter how quiet they try and keep it!
I’ll start chopping onions, someone open the wine…
When we moved out we said that we wouldn’t be getting Sky because we had all the channels we needed on Freeview. Four months in and the new series of Idiot Abroad and Glee are starting along with the football….and the Sky man is coming to fit out Sky+ box next Sunday!
It’s a real luxury and i can’t wait especially to record and series link all my favourite shows! The boyfriend will come home to a box filled with all sorts of cheesy girly shows and no room left for all his football :P
joanne-claire said: Usually too drunk to care about squeezing into the single, but HOORAH anyway! :D
I tell you what, homemade curry, fancy wine glasses, bacon sandwiches in the morning and now a double bed to sleep on…we don’t half treat you lot well. Hopefully it will be delivered before Saturday! ♥
Hi Amelia! Did anything ever come of your bid to get a "personal" tag on here? I hope you have a lovely holiday and that your bruises soon disappear after your fall!
Well i emailed them a few times with my 'personal/diary/journal/life' category suggestion but no-one at Tumblr HQ ever got back to me *booo hiss* Maybe if they get emails from a few different bloggers they might think about it?
You can drop them a quick email here:email@example.com the suggestion of a ‘personal’ category if you’d like to join the cause too - Campaign for Real Blogs! ♥
P.s. thank you, i’m so excited for our holiday!! Here’s hoping my bruises have disappeared by then! ><
You seem like a very lovely lady. =) Your posts are always quite fun (well, except when you got hurt recently which isn't so fun, I hope you're doing okay!) and I dig your style too. Just wanted to say that and that I enjoy being a follower! =D Have a nice day~
Aw thank you Tiffany, this is so sweet of you!
I’m still feeling a little bruised and achy after my spectacular fall but i’m doing alright - serves me right for being so clumsy! Am feeling very lucky though to have come out the other end with no broken bones…and no broken mugs! :)
Thank you very much for following, it means the world to me ♥
tuesday, well. the most handsome guy in my school is in my class :o was the second day of school and i like most of my teachers. tomorrow i'm going to be with two of my best friends and talk to the guy. and i was with my best friend, it was awesome! what about you? :)
Well this is just adorable, i’m so happy you had such a great day! Good luck talking to that handsome young man tomorrow, i’m sure he’s noticed you already and will be falling at your feet in no time.
My day wasn’t nearly as exciting as yours i’m afraid - just work! We did go out for a meal with my parents this evening though which was a nice treat ♥
I have a bunny and have always been a bunny lover. I think your love for your babies is incredible and am glad to see that I'm not the only one to feel that way! mine is 6 years old and i couldn't imagine my days without him. I love the pictures you post of them but i just hope you don't get creeped out when i reblog them! they're just so darn adorable.
I won’t get creeped out don’t worry - i’m always flattered when my posts get reblogged, it’s lovely! Your bunny must be super big and cuddly at 6 years old, i’m sure he’s very contented!
Thank you so much for following, it’s an honour to have you and a pleasure to talk to you ♥
