For the shortest month of the year, it dragged almost as much as January did; although at least we had the added benefit of some glorious sunshine towards the end!!
It’s been a while since J and I really bothered with Valentine’s Day. When we first got together he surprised me with a trip to Disneyland Paris (which I’ve written about here) but it sort of all went downhill from there really! I think he peaked too soon and set an impossible standard to match up to 😂😂
The year after, I received some beautiful potted roses and we’ve also done the obligatory box of chocolates but after that, it pretty much dwindled down to getting a takeaway so I didn’t have to cook!!
Whoop whoop, it’s the first catch-up post of the new year and it’s only 5 days late!! Don’t expect too much though, I’ve not exactly been busy this month. I think January is definitely the month to be hibernating and take it easy 😂😂
I have no idea why, but for the last 10 years (at least) I’ve really, really wanted a tattoo of a deer’s head on my thigh. I just think deer (and stags) are magnificent animals and really majestic ♥
Well, it’s now 2019 and I’ve just got round to writing my December catch-up for 2018, oops!
I’m definitely excited to see the back of 2018 and get on with 2019; not in the least because I have three tattoo sessions booked in for the next three months 😊😊
If I’m being completely honest, I haven’t really felt festive at all this year. So far, I’ve watched 0 Christmas films, made 0 eggnogs, decorated 0 Christmas trees and sung at the top of my voice in the car to 0 Christmas songs. I’m not exactly Scrooge but it’s been really hard to get into the swing of it this year.
Recently Sammy, Mr Biscuit (her gorgeous miniature Daschund puppy) and I headed to Barker and Stonehouse in Hove on a rainy Saturday afternoon for a mooch around, a long over-due catch-up and to check out their new coffee house (situated upstairs at the back).
We all know it’s the season for colds, flu and generally feeling run down so I’ve tried to find the perfect products to help me stay healthy this winter.
It’s also party season, time for families and getting closer to people than you generally would so I’ve also been testing out products to keep my mouth in tip-top condition for those awkward kisses with relatives and people you haven’t seen for years!
La Cave a Fromage is somewhere I’ve been past on the bus many times and have always wanted to go in and try. Recently, I finally got my wish and I headed there with my lovely friend Tania for their fondue night and a long over-due catch-up!
I hate getting up early on a Saturday. Saturdays should be for lie-ins. Except one particular Saturday when I met up with my lovely friend Rachael at 9am at Pool Valley (in Brighton) to travel up to London to see the Leicester Square Christmas Market!
