Happy Sunday!


Recently the cold weather has me hibernating more so than usual. There's not much better than spooning, Netflixs and a takeaway healthy amazing meal. 

But tomorrow marks the first day of December and I am already bracing myself for having to talk to other humans in social settings. So this weekend I made a conscious decision to actually be ... conscious, rather than embracing lethargy and only using arm and wrist action to pile food into mah mouf.

Yesterday me and the boyf finally ventured to a pub round the corner from where he lives and I was pleasantly surprised. We spent a nice cozy night drinking and huddling under the outdoor heaters. Today has seen me take these attractive pictures and do a bit more boring admin-y type stuff aka organise Christmas presents.

Because I am aiming to move to Amsterdam next year at the end of April, I have been saving like crazy! This also means I think I might get a bit DIY-ish with my presents this year because mama has plans that a Topshop gift card does not fit into. I've found some great ideas so I'll be sharing that with you guys next week.

In the mean time if anyone has any good DIY blogs in their arsenal - let me know!

I'm back baby


Like I never left (because I didn't). In the event that you actually care - this is what I wore to work today. My Baseball knowledge is laughable but I asked my (amelican, yes amelican) uncle if I could have one of his baseball jerseys I think in December 2013, The answer was a resounding NOPE, but then months and months later my uncle and aunt surprised me by getting me this for my birthday in June.

Sentimental tears aside, I did initially envisage the jersey coming down to my knees, because obviously when I tried on my uncles', who is 6ft 2, it was a litttlleee longer to say the least. ...Are you guys still with me? I know this is some inane bullshit but I really like this top. You're still reading!  Anyway long and short, I like it this length.

Also a bonus extra cute point is that my initials spell out the word J.E.T. which is why I think they got me the Jeter jersey.

Now i'm sure that I've significantly changed your life, I'll be leaving now.

Azealia Banks - Chasing Time



Azealia banks recently released her new album 'Broke With Expensive Taste'. Anyone who has been following her career knows that this release is well over due, it's also not without a bit of drama, because apparently she has released this sans record label. (Oh my glob, drama bomb).

I haven't had the chance to sit down and listen to the album from start to finish, but I am loving what I've heard so far, including this song which serves as the first single. Visually I am in lorve, it's like a tribute to the female titans of hip hop and in the current climate of ... watered down rap, I think it's a nice touch,

Enjoy!

31 Day Blog Challenge - Day 7

Day 7: Your pet hates

I don't have many pet hates (lies).

  • I hate people spitting on the floor
  • I despise slow walking in busy places
  • I hate when people try to run on to a train just as the door closes (like no one has watched Final Destination before)
  • I don't like seeing stray hairs in water
  • I don't like when people mix rubbish - like putting old clothes with food etc.
  • I don't like strangers accidentally making physical contact with me when i'm in public

Those are my major ones.

Read day six.

Day 6: Your 5 senses right now

  1. I can taste the dinner that my younger siblings made for everyone this eve
  2. I can see the stupid 'Walking Dead' on my TV right now. I don't want to watch it but my sister has it on and I can't be bothered to move
  3. Right now i'm touching the keyboard and I can feel this sofa under my butt
  4. I can hear the stupid Walking Dead programme. To clarify, i'm sure it is a well-made and interesting programme but I'm a bit of a scardy cat and I don't like to watch these things!
  5. Right now I can't really smell anything. Just Oxygen - which is pretty perfect!

31 DAY BLOG CHALLENGE - DAY 4

Day 4: What are you afraid of

One of the main things I am afraid of, I don't like to talk about because I am superstitious and feel like it's asking for all of the troubles. The second thing I also don't want to think about. Hey, how about I just don't answer this question at all tbh?

I guess I am afraid of becoming a desk zombie and following the marriage, mortgage, kids and death timeline.
