A Day in The Life #1 // Blogboss

A lot of people ask me what I get up to on a daily basis and my answer is never the same, because one day is always different from the next. There are some regularities I follow, like, I get up (around the same time) every day, I eat the same thing for breakfast everyday, and my laptop is usually heavily involved throughout any given day, but that’s where it ends.

I thought it would be fun to document a “Day in the Life of…” as a change from Vlogging (because I just can’t get used to vlogging everyday – nor do I want to!) so you can have a little nosey peak into my life, if your anything like me, I love being nosey in to other peoples lives.

For those of you that don’t know, I work for myself from home. The bulk of my business/income comes from my photo booth business, second to that is the design, branding and wordpress website building work I do for small businesses (website to launch soon) and then of course is this blog. Strangely, my largest income needs the least work daily on account of having built it up over the last 4 years, it kind of just runs itself these days. The blog being the newest of my business ventures, requires the most work as it so new, and earns me VERY little at the mo, although the dream is to have it as an equal part of my income in the next few years.

How to quickly, simply and safely curl your hair

I discovered this little trick a few weeks back when I was just putting a few curls in through the ends of my hair whilst it was in a pony tail. It was so quick and rushed but when I took the hair bobble out and set my hair free, it looked surprisingly awesome!

I got myself a curling wand, which is now a staple part of my weekly hair care routine. I wash my hair (usually on a Thursday or Friday) once a week, sometimes even once every two weeks. If I need it to look good that day, I blow dry and run through this method. (if I am not rushing out the house I try to limit the blow drying)

Note: because this is quick and easy it doesn’t last as long in my hair as if I spent time doing it, but it doesn’t matter for me because I can just top it up as and when I need.

Check out the video to see exactly how I curled my hair quickly and easily.

Tuesday Treasures // Modern Rockabilly

Last night, I headed to The Kingsley Academy who was very kindly hosting the South West Bloggers frock swap. I wanted to wait to put together this week’s Tuesday Treasures #ootd, rather than planning it in advance, because I wanted to wait to see what treasures I would find last night. And treasures I did find indeed, I came home with more than I took with me! I will be filming a Frock Swap Haul video this afty so watch this space, but for now I have put together this modern rockabilly inspired outfit with a couple of items I picked up last night.

This two piece vintage set belonged to the gorgeous Sophie from Saints on a Plane, I don’t usually do green but I loved the floral print on it and the cute little top. I teamed it with this Bonjour Paris metallic slogan t-shirt that I picked up in my last Primark haul (you can watch the video here) which I am yet to wear until now. With a floral twin set like this, the look could have easily been a really pretty pretty and classy look, but that’s not me! So instead, I rocked it with a leather jacket (also from Primark) and my Aimilita Dr Martens from their new AW14 Rugged collection. Also featured here is some bespoke earrings from Gauge Queen, my rockabilly skull necklace from Punky Pins and a couple of rings (right hand only) from Cheap Frills.

Mermaid Tales // My First Halloween Party

That’s right, since being an ‘adult’ I have never been to a Halloween party and dressed up. So this year I thought it was about time, so we had the first party in our house since moving in two years ago (where does time go? honestly!) I made a half hearted effort at decorating, but I didn’t want to spend a fortune on it, knowing it would all be wasted after a few drinks! In hindsight I’d have love to have gone all out and much bigger with it all, but I have kept all the decorations to build on it next year.

I was pretty impressed with the turn out of all the costumes, most people really made an effort, and some (not mentioning any names) didn’t! But I made them wear the tabard of shame from the emergency costume kit (it was basically a plastic bag) but all in all it was a great turn out and we had a great evening.

I spent all of Saturday on the sofa tainted with a hangover and a house to myself. Brad went to work like a trooper, so I spent all day watching Made In Chelsea and back to back youtube videos. At around 4pm I peeled myself off the sofa, nursed the hangover with one final berocca, and got showered and ready to head over to Wiltshire for Steph and Sam’s wedding party with the photo booth for the evening.

To my surprise it was 10.30am(!!!) before I woke from my slumber on Sunday morning, I haven’t slept in like that for ages! Sunday is the one day of the week I get to wake up with Brad next to me (because it’s lie in day for both of us!) and we get to enjoy some snuggles before we devoured a mammoth breakfast and embarked on cleaning the remnants of Friday night’s party.

I love Sundays, they are my fav day of the week. I get to spend all day with my boys doing something or nothing, but at least we are all together!

I hope you have a wonderful week beauty’s!

The Weekend Round Up #1

It’s the WEEKEND!!! Wuhoo! I say wuhoo through my slightly tainted head after our Halloween party last night. I have never had a halloween party before, I don’t even think as an adult that I have ever done fancy dress before! I know – shock horror! I will be sharing some photos from the party on Monday as today I will be spending the day recovering, before I am off to wiltshire for Steph’s wedding party tonight with the Fishee Designs Photo Booth.

But for now, I thought I would do a quick weekend round up, if you missed anything during the week, here is where you can easily catch up!
