Away for a while!

Just a quick post to let you know I will be quiet for a while, I'm currently redecorating which is taking up a lot of my time but also my laptop is poorly and is off to computer hospital (I'm posting for the first time on my iPad) I'll be back soon perhaps with a room tour if you would like?

Picture of Me x

I wanted to share with you this illustration I had done of myself by Malia at Deep Fried Freckles. She does some absolutely stunning drawings and when I just happened to stumble onto her blog I knew I wanted one and I'm sure it won't be the last.
What do you think?

I don't to be honest, I work for the family Craft and printing business so I hope that one day I will take that over  and hope to branch out more into the wedding market.

10 day You Challenge - SIX


DAY 5
SIX - PEOPLE

1)   A Little cheat as it is more than one person but, My Beloved Grandparents. I lost them both recently, My Grampy 2 years ago and My Gran in June and although it was only a couple of months ago I felt like i lost my Gran the same time as my Gramp, She was never really the same person I don't think she could live without him. That's True True Love.♥

2)   My Sister Jennie not just a Sister but My Best Friend I love her lots we still argue occasionally but thats what sibling do.

3)   Rhiain My Best friend I have known her since 1993, she started late at secondary school but she was almost instantly part of our group of friends. As we have gotten older relationships have strained and broken and we two are the last ones standing. She can be a bit stubborn at times but she is very smart, fun and loving and I have found over the years we have more and more in common, I trust her completely. She has supported me through some tough times recently even though she doesn't know it.

4)   Meryl Streep I am a huge fan in my opinion she is the best actress ever I have seen every movie she has made and there is not one I didn't like.

5)   My fellow Bloogers and Vloggers I follow loads of you and although you don't know me I would like you to know that you have inspired me and given me tons of the Confidence I needed.

6)   Celebrities, another cheat. I find certain celebs inspiring and look up to them so i wanted to list a few of my favorites. Davina McCall, Holly Willoughby, Fearne Cotton, Lilly Allen, Adele, Ellen Degeneres, Oprah, Meryl Streep and The Royal Family in particular Princess Diana.

7 Things = August

I have decided to join another sprinkle of Glitter feature you all  know how much I love her blog and a lot of other people have have been joining in too I see.


This will be a monthly feature for me which I will start at the beginning of each moth and will give you a progress report towards the end. 
I hope you enjoy it and why not join in click the above image for Louise's Blog for the original post.

My August Goals

TIDY   ~   My Bedroom is in desperate need of an ultimate clean and tidy everything seems to get dumped in there and it looks like a bomb has hit it... Not Good!


PERSEVERE   ~   With my Spending Ban I have slipped a couple of times this week but I'm gonna be strong and last till the end of the month *fingers crossed*


BLOG   ~   I have many ideas for posts but never seem to be able to find the time to do them. I must make time!!!


CHANGE   ~   I have been very lax when it comes to my eating healthy/diet recently I really need to get back on to it. My Cousins Wedding in November is my New Goal!!


DECORATE   ~   I really need to decorate my living room. I decided on a very patriotic England/London theme and have already bought some decorative items but it needs new carpet and walls painting first.


ENJOY  ~   The Sunshine  I hate the heat but I must suck it up and take it. It probably won't last long!!!


CRAFT   ~   I have been getting back into my crafting recently (I lost my passion for it when my Gramps past away 2 years ago) so now the creativity is coming back to me i would love to continue with it.


Wish me luck people and I'll post later this month with how I got on.
