Project 365 #031 - Fish Therapy Pedicure



Day 031 - Today was my friends birthday and I took the day off work and spent it with her getting pampered at a beauty salon. We started off with a fish therapy pedicure which felt sooooo weird, the fish really tickled my feet but I have to say my feet have never felt so soft.  It cost £10 for 20 minutes of nibbling.  I then followed that up with a pedicure and polish and also a facial. So all in all I had a lovely day of relaxing.  We went out this evening for a meal and I wore my new mustard blouse from Topshop from my previous post, I love it.

Project 365 #030 - Pink Birthday Cake



Day 030 - Pink Birthday Cake - Sorry its another photo of my baking.  Its my friend Amy's birthday tomorrow and we are going out for a meal so I thought I'd bake a cake to take to the restaurant.  I just need to stick some candles on it and its good to go.

Project 365 #029 - Lemon Butterfly Cupcakes



Day 029 - Lemon Butterfly Cupcakes


Today I spent the afternoon around my friends house and we did some baking. I baked these little beauties and I have to say.......they taste delicious.  


I finally spoke to Dylan today after 2 weeks of not being able to speak to him, it was so good to hear his voice, but I'm so annoyed with the RAF, they don't supply any means of communication for the troops and so he had to spend £14 on a sim card which lasted a whole 20 seconds, I couldn't believe it!!!  I ended up having to ring him on his mobile in Oman so god knows how much that has cost me but I don't care, it was just so nice to be able to speak to him.  They usually give them a 30 minute phone card every week but for some reason they don't do it in Oman!! Its disgusting!

PEG TROUSERS!


Today I wore these peg trousers which I bought in New Look last weekend for £25.  They are a really lovely colour, kind of somewhere between camel and cream and the belt came with them.  I think they will be really cute in Spring/Summer with some gold sandals, tanned feet and bright coral varnish on the toes!

Project 365 #028 - Zoya Heidi



Day 028 - Zoya Heidi - Ok so I'm not too sure about this colour.  I bought it a couple of years ago and really loved it but I think its just a bit too orange!  Anyhoo it didn't stop me from painting my nails in it this evening before going out for a meal with friends (which was lovely and just what I needed after having a really crap week in work).  I'm so happy its Friday I'm literally going to bed in a minute and am aiming for 9 hours sleep tonight.

Project 365 #027 - Impulse buy



Day 027 - Impulse Buy - How silly do I look? haha!  Today I spotted this shower cap whilst doing the weekly shop in Tesco and just had to buy it.  I just thought it was so cute with the little pink bow and polka dots.  At the moment I just throw my hair up in a knot before getting in the shower but I thought this would protect it from getting wet much better and I also thought it could double up as a hair mask intensifier, I'll put this on when I'm doing my weekly hair mask to keep the heat in.

Project 365 #026 - English Mustard



Day 026 - English Mustard - I ordered this blouse from Topshop over the weekend and it landed on my doorstep today.  I was so excited to try it on and it was instant love!  I have never owned/worn anything in the shade mustard........ EVER.  I love everything about it, the peter pan collar, the lovely chiffon material, the tiered front, the buttons that run all the way down the back, billowy sleeves, but most of all the colour.  I plan on teaming this with black skinnies and shoe boots!  Happy hump day everyone, I love Wednesdays!

Project 365 #025 - Thank you Flowers!



Day 025 - Thank you Flowers! - Today I got these delivered to me in work.  They are from my best friend Amy and are a thank you for arranging her baby shower.  They couldn't have come at a better time as I am feeling so fed up in work at the moment and the fact that Dylan isn't here and I'm not even able to speak to him in Oman isn't helping, so these really brightened my day!


My sister and I saw a boy get run over today on our way home from work which was rather disturbing, but thankfully he was fine, he managed to stand up straight away only to have to lie down again, so we got out to make sure an ambulance was called, my legs were shaking so bad but I felt better after I saw that he was ok.


I'm currently sat on my sofa with a deep conditioning treatment on my hair watching My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding!!  I actually felt a bit sorry for them when they were destroying their homes.

Project 365 #024 Help.... I'm cracking up!



Day 024 - Help.... I'm cracking up - Literally I feel like every part of my body is dry and cracking up.  This cold weather is playing havoc with the skin on my hands and arms, my hair is dry, my lips are constantly dry and my nails are chipping left right and centre.  So this week I have decided to apply this Maximum Growth daily nail treatment to my nails every day along with a massive slathering of body lotion, hand lotion, cherry chapstick and a deep conditioner for my hair in an attempt to feel normal again.  I'm also drinking more water as I'm sure a lot of it is down to me being dehydrated.

Project 365 #023 - Arrgh Dry Lips!



Day 023 - Arrgh Dry Lips - My lips have been so dry lately because of all the cold weather.  They have started splitting and bleeding too (sorry if that's TMI).  So I have been slathering this stuff on like there is no tomorrow.  I love everything about Cherry Chapstick; the smell, the formulation, the fact that it has a little SPF in it and also Katy Perry sang about it..... nuff said!


Hope you all had a lovely weekend.  I'm off to bed now with my book.

★ So today was the Baby Shower.  Everything went smoothly and to plan.  We had  a lovely little tea-party with sandwiches, fruit skewers, cupcakes and drank copious amounts of tea! We played a few little games and just had a really lovely afternoon.  I'm all sugared out now though from all the cupcakes (I made the pink ones and injected some jam into the middle for an extra touch).


★ I plan on having a massive lie in tomorrow and painting my nails whilst watching Dancing on Ice.......... I'm so "Rock n Roll"!

Project 365 #021 - Baby Shower Cake



Day 021 - Baby Shower Cake - Really late post tonight, but I've been decking my house out for my best friends baby shower tomorrow and I've also been baking cupcakes and this cake.  Its nothing spectacular but it was my first attempt using fondant icing and ice writing.  I think its nice to have something home-made, it makes it more personal.  Have a fab weekend folks.

Project 365 #020 - I think I may have a problem



Day 020 - I think I may have a problem - Ok so this is what I do, I find a food that I like and then eat it religiously every day.  My current obsession is Nutri-Grain bars, but I'm very specific, it has to be of the Blackberry and Apple kind anything else and I will just throw it back in your face!


Sorry the P365 pic is a bit of a lazy one today but to be honest I've had a really shit day at work and then had a few technical problems with my dad's computer earlier so all in all I've had a pretty hectic day and I will be happy to hit the haystack tonight!

Bowled over!





Check out my lovely new bowler hat!  I've been wanting one for some time now but didn't know if it would really suit me so didn't want to spend a fortune on it but after reading Kelly (A Twenty Something) post on her new hat from River Island which her mum found in the sale, I thought hmmmm I wonder if they've got any nice bowler hats and low and behold I found this beauty for £5.  I must have got the last one or something because its not on their website any more.  Good times :-)


What do you think, is it a keeper?

Project 365 #019 - What a lovely view

Project 365 #018 - Heat Mag



Day 018 - Heat Mag - This is what a typical Tuesday looks like for me.  I am so glad that the "big freeze" is over because it was messing up with my heat mag delivery, I was getting it on a Friday instead of a Tuesday BAD TIMES:-(  


I'm still eating my Christmas leftovers and I still have another 2 boxes of mince pies to eat.






Today I had to nip into town to pick up some shampoo, conditioner and deodorant and whilst I was in my local Superdrug (which is probably one of the worst superdrugs in the world)  I found 2 bottles of Gosh Holographic and did a little dance to myself as this stuff is like gold dust and has been discontinued. I wanted it so bad after seeing so many amazing pictures on other blogs, so I bought them both and when I got to the till they were half price BONUS!  I'm thinking of maybe keeping one for myself and then saving the other one for a giveaway when I reach 200 followers.

Project 365 #016 - Scrabble



Day 016 - Today was a wet and windy Sunday so Dylan and I stayed in, played Scrabble, drank lots of tea and ate lots of biscuits whilst watching Rachel Zoe project in the background.  I absolutely love scrabble its one of my favourite games along with Dominoes so this was the perfect Sunday for me :-)


Oh and if your wondering it was me that played the word boobs hehe.

Project 365 #015 - Date Night



Day 015 - Date Night - So tonight was date night and we decided to go to Prezzo.  For some reason I look like I'm about to cry in this photo but trust me I didn't I had a really lovely evening and enjoyed some really great food and drink.

★ SaTuRdAy ChAtTeRdAy ★

★ OK so today Dylan and I had to take a trip to the post office so that Dylan could pick up his Independent Driving Permit as he travels to Oman on Monday with work (RAF) and needs to be able to drive whilst he is out there.  Unfortunately the nearest post office that does these permits is 20 miles away from where we live so that pretty much took up most of the morning.  


★ Made myself a cheese and coleslaw sarnie and cut it into tiny triangles because they taste better that way haha.




★ Stopped in Starbucks this afternoon for a latte, took a pic of Dylan larking about

Project 365 #014 - Toy Story 3



Day 014 - Toy Story 3 - I finally watched this tonight and oh my days........ what a tear jerker.  I actually cried my eyes  out.  


I had today off work which was lovely and Dylan came home from work this afternoon so we spent the afternoon together.  He goes to Oman on Monday for 3 weeks so we are having date night tomorrow.  I'm so used to him going away now, 3 weeks is a doddle, it just sucks when he goes away for months on end :-( Oh well as the saying goes..... absence makes the heart grow fonder xx

Project 365 #013 - Basil Plant



Day 013  - Basil Plant - Today whilst browsing through the aisles in Tesco I decided to buy this basil plant.  I eat a lot of pasta (its my favourite dish) and this is the perfect herb to accompany a tomato based pasta dish so I thought I'd pick one up instead of using the dried herbs.


You can see my little cupcake candles from Laura Ashley in the background, they were a valentines gift from Dylan last year, they are just too pretty to burn.


I had a seriously busy day in work today and couldn't wait to get home, and lucky me I have tomorrow off YAY, can't wait to have a lie-in, sleeping is my favourite thing to do haha.
