Project 365 #119 - Royal Wedding Fever

Again more than one photo - sorry

Day 119 - Royal Wedding Fever - What a Wedding huh! I got up at the crack of dawn to go over to my friends parents house for a Royal Wedding Party and I have to say it was a bloody good old shin dig and I don't think I have ever laughed so much in one day.  We all sat down to watch the wedding and then had a lovely little tea party in the garden for lunch followed by lots of games (egg and spoon race/sack race/space hopper race) bouncing on the bouncy castle, I drank a ridiculous amount of tea and tried my first ever cup of Earl Grey and thoroughly enjoyed it.

I thought Kate looked so elegant and poised (like a true Princess) I actually felt massively jealous of her, it's every girl's dream to be a princess.  It must be so overwhelming when that many people turn up just to see your wedding.........INCREDIBLE.

Project 365 #118 - Hummingbird Raspberry Trifle Cupcakes (with a twist)


Day 115 - 118 - Hummingbird Raspberry Trifle Cupcakes (with a twist) - These look like they are gonna taste amazing haha.  I baked these tonight for the Royal Wedding party that i'm going to tomorrow (at 8:30AM I may add)  They are vanilla sponge with a raspberry and jam in the centre and custard on the top sounds pretty amazing to me so I had to give them a whirl. I cannot wait to try one tomorrow.  Oh and I made the little union jack flags myself with the help of sellotape and cocktail sticks, simples.  If you love baking and haven't bought the Hummingbird Bakery Cookbook Cake Days yet, I suggest you do it right now, you will not be disappointed.

Right, its off to bed I go, I have an important wedding to attend tomorrow and I am seriously tired right now.

Project 365 #117 - Bedtime Treats


Day 117 - Bedtime Treats - There is nothing better than settling down to bed with a good old magazine and look my iPhone is back all fixed yay.  Apparently it was my LCD panel that had broken so he replaced it and now it lights up like a star!

Went to see Scream 4 with my friend Charlotte and it was so terrible.  It wasn't scary at all, the acting was awful, the plot was awful and Courtney Cox's face looked awful, AWFUL AWFUL AWFUL. WTF has she done to her lips, seriously.  The next film I want to watch is Beastly which has Vanessa Hudgens and Alex Pettiffer in it, looks a bit like Beauty and the Beast :-)

Project 365 #116 - Temporary Measures


Day 116 - Temporary Measures - So my dearly beloved iPhone is with Mr Fixit and this is my temporary phone until I pick it back up.  It feels so weird to have such an ordinary phone after being spoilt with my iPhone.  Its amazing how times change isn't it? My first mobile phone was a brick and you couldn't even text from it, it was purely used as a telephone for ringing people and now I hardly ever use my phone as an actual "phone" I use it for all the apps, facebook, twitter, e-mail etc...

I'm going to shut up now as I am starting to sound like my dad (back in my day..................)

In other news I went out for a lovely meal in Ask for a leaving do for one of the girlies in work, great food, great company, great night xx

Project 365 #114 - I've been replaced!


Day 114 - I've been replaced - Look at my beautiful little girl lying on MY side of the bed, I really do love my dog xx

Didn't have time to put this post up yesterday as I was a busy bee all day painting my fence (there was a lot of fence to paint) but finally it is done now.  I was then randomly invited to watch N-Dubz in Plymouth with my friend Charlotte as she had a spare ticket and no-one to go with.  Now......... N-Dubz aren't exactly my cup of tea but I don't mind some of their songs and it was free so I thought "why not". Professor Green was the support act so we got to see him do his set too. All in all it was a good show although there was a girl stood right behind us with really bad breath, and I mean really really bad so bad in fact that I almost offered her one of my chewing gum but I thought that might be a bit rude of me.

Project 365 #113 - I want to be a princess!!


Day 113 - I want to be a princess - Haha is this the funniest thing you've ever seen or what? I FINALLY went shopping in Plymouth today and bought this amazing Kate Middleton mask and replica ring (I did buy more than just this but will show you that tomorrow).  I'm off to a Royal Wedding Party next Friday and my friend and I will be donning these brilliant masks.

I've had such a fun day hitting the shops today with my friend Amy.  Primark came up trumps for me I bought 4 pairs of shoes for less than a tenner, WINNER.  We then sang along very loudly to Take That all the way home in the car, good times.

Just tucked into a Chinese whilst watching BGT and I'm now watching million pound drop.  Oh and my iPhone broke yesterday :-( the backlight on my screen has broken so I can only use it in the daylight, bad times.

Project 365 #112 - Our new favourite crisps


Day 112 - Our new favourite crisps - Dylan and I tucked into these little beauties tonight whilst watching the film Easy A. Our friend Matt bought them for us because we had dip but no crisps, yep really clever I know........ they taste like heaven and how cute is the packaging.

Today we spent the day painting our fence (exciting huh) but we didn't even manage to get halfway through as it started to rain.  Hopefully we'll be able to finish it off on Sunday because tomorrow I am going SHOPPING in Plymouth as lent is officially over yes yes yes.  I actually can't wait.

Project 365 #111 - Easter Cocktails


Day 111 - Easter Cocktails - I hope everyone is enjoying the Easter break.  Last night I went out in Falmouth for a meal and drinks with the girls.  Its sort of become a tradition that we go out on the Thursday night before Good Friday (its called Maundy Thursday right? I did pay attention in Sunday School).  We went to my favourite restaurant called Warehouse,  I really do recommend this restaurant if your ever in Cornwall.  We then continued onto a couple of bars, had some cocktails and a dance to "Everybody"  by The Backstreet Boys (so rock and roll).

Project 365 #110 - Getting my tan on


Day 110 - Getting my tan on - Spent the evening tanning for a night out.  St Moriz is by far my fave self tanner to date.  I have tried St Tropez, Fake Bake, NO7, Olay, Rimmel instant tan and personally I think St Moriz wins hands down. Unfortunately it does have that typical fake tan biscuit smell but I find slapping on A LOT of baby lotion and perfume usually masks the smell quite well.  Gloves are a definite must when applying this as you don't want the dreaded telltale signs in between your fingers.

So glad its Easter Weekend :-)

Project 365 #109 - Din Dins


Day 109 - Din Dins - Here is a pic of what I just tucked into for my dinner tonight.  Its really simple, just a Mediterranean rice (thanks Uncle Ben) and smoked haddock with a side of salad.  Tasty.  Sometimes it can be really difficult cooking for one whilst Dylan is at work. I usually end up having the same old thing day in day out - jacket potato is a favourite along with pasta.

I'm off to the cinema with friends tonight to watch Red Riding Hood.  I'm expecting good things as it is the same director as the Twilight films and It has Amanda Seyfried in it who I adore but never know how to pronounce her name??

Oh and I found out the best news today, Tom from McFly proposed to his childhood sweetheart Giovanna
I LOVE MCFLY - no really I do

Project 365 #108 - Primarni Jewels


Day 108 - Primarni Jewels - Today I wore my finest most expensive jewellery.  I think the whole lot came to about £3 last year haha.  I really love these earring and am so glad I bought them last year as aztec/tribal seems to be all the rage this year.  The ring is just the most beautiful aqua/turqouise shade.  And this people, is why I love Primark!

I get to go shopping in 5 days time, YAY I am V excited about hitting up Primark, I've even been dreaming about shopping I've missed it that much.  6 weeks of no shopping is hard work. I think next year i'll give up something easier for lent.

Project 365 #107 - Finishing my book :-)


Day 107 - Finishing my book - The sun has got his hat on hip hip hooray!!  I spent nearly ALL day in my garden today. I started off by cutting my grass, its amazing how fast the green stuff grows.

If you read my previous post you will see that I made an Easter tree today, I then sat in the garden and finished my book whilst I was waiting for the paint to dry on my twigs.  This book was leant to me by Dylan's mum and it was so gripping and come the end I couldn't put it down.  I also found it quite frightening/disturbing that it is a true story and actually happened to the family.

A few hours later I decided to come in and then realised that I had caught the sun again (when will I ever learn).  Well I must dash as I need to have a bath and make a smoothie to take to work with me tomorrow. Hope you all enjoyed this beautiful weather - long weekend next week WAHOO!!!!

Easter Tree - Getting Creative

Today I put my Easter Tree together.  I did the same thing last year but this year I decided to spray my twigs gold.  Here are some pics of me putting it together.








I bought the large eggs from TK-Maxx and the little eggs from a shop in Penryn called Just Delights they were all bought last year. I put all my easter chocs in the bowl and voila.  Its really simple but I think it looks really cute.  I actually really love easter - chocolate eggs/hot cross buns/4 day weekend/going out with friends = good times

Project 365 #106 - Beach Bum





Day 106 - Beach Bum - More than 1 photo today because I went to 2 lovely places with my friends that are staying with me.  Firstly we went to Helston Boating Lake and took my friends 2 year old daughter to the park and then took a stroll around the lake and fed the ducks.  All of the trees were in full blossom and looked absolutely stunning.

After a quick stop in Starbucks for a vanilla latte we then took a trip to Portreath Beach, its not one of my favourite beaches in Cornwall but it was still lovely to get some sea air and feel the warm sand in between my toes nevertheless.

Project 365 #105 - Pretty Daffodils


Day 105 - Pretty Daffodils - Unfortunately all the daffodils in my garden have died off but I picked up this bunch from Tesco on Thursday for 60p (they were on offer) and by the next day they had opened up to this.  They are not your usual daffodil but I have no idea what kind they are, surely they must have a special name, can someone please tell me?

Spent the evening eating Chinese takeaway and watching the Notebook with my friends as they have never seen it and I was explaining that it is the most beautiful film ever (they agreed).

Project 365 #104 - I'm a sucker for a freebie


Day 104 - I'm a sucker for a freebie - I did the weekly food shop today and just simply couldn't pass up on this offer.  Buy 2 Kellogg's cereals and get a bowl free, am I just a massive loser or is this cool or what!!  I'm one of those sad people that go to McDonalds when they do the free coca cola glass offer and try and get as many as I can haha.

Dylan is back on base and my guests have gone to a retirement do tonight so I decided to catch up on last nights Kerry Katona The Next Chapter because I love a good reality show, and wow her mum really is something else isn't she, she really made me quite angry.

Think I might try and get an early night tonight and curl up in bed with my magazines.  Oh and I received a really lovely e-mail today that made me smile, thank you Katie xx

Project 365 #103 - Giving my nails a break


Day 103 - Giving my nails a break - I have been trying to give my nails a break recently as they are in terrible condition, all brittle, splitting and breaking everywhere so I am giving the polish a rest for a couple of weeks and I'm going to buff them up like mad, get the cuticle oil going and put a maximum growth coat on along with gallons of hand cream.  Hopefully i'll have beautiful talons by the end of it.

Posts might be a little sparse over the next few days as I'm entertaining guests but I will try my best.

Project 365 #102 - Surfboard Mirror


Day 102 - Surfboard Mirror - Another day another dollar.  I have literally spent the evening cleaning my house as I have friends staying with us tonight until Sunday so I wanted my house to be spick and span for when they stay.

I was midway through cleaning my mirror when I thought "this would make a good P365 pic.  We bought this a few months after moving into our house from a guy that comes to the local market and sells them.  He makes lots of other amazing mirrors out of driftwood too.  If you look closely you'll see that the carvings include a mermaid at the bottom with a surfer reaching out to her there is also a tree and a bird on a branch as you look further up, so my mirror tells a bit of a story, cool huh.
