Spring Dilemmas and Pug Dogs

This isn’t meant to be a whinge, more how I feel when the heat starts to kick in and I’m that no mans land transition between season how do I dress, so it could be perceived as one. Plus some other random thoughts and observations of the past few weeks. 

Now the heat’s just beginning to start, 22-25C during the day, which means that as soon as you get your legs out they’re meant to be tan already. (more…)

Weekend Friday Favourites

This past week’s been crazy. Ikea trips, rearranging furniture, running all day errands, collecting race t-shirts, trying to keep my cool in the post office with a lady who had to keep repeating things and didn’t like it when I asked her to reweigh the parcel after I had to take a few things out that couldn’t be sent (creams, make up as per the law from Oct last year. I mentioned a poster would be nice, to which she dug out the leaflet saying you can’t fit all this on a poster). I should have just kept quiet and if the parcel got returned, it got returned.

I knew I had to unscrew the backs but I couldn’t get a grip on them. I was just turning the whole earring around and around. I ended up going back the tattoo place for help. Thankfully the receptionist was laughing with me and with a knowing smile asked if I’d tried latex gloves. Nope. They did the trick. I got the feeling I’m not the only one who’s erm, how the F do I remove these!

Recycle Less. YouTube Made Me Do It

I’ve been thinking about this post for a while. I’m vegan and try to be environmentally friendly conscious however you call it. I’m also finding myself which is probably part of growing up (not age as age makes you sound old) not buying into the hype or wanting so many possessions.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Zero waste, minimalism and fast fashion kept popping up on my YouTube feed as I’ve been watching tiny houses. I don’t even know if it was tiny houses or how I found tiny houses on YouTube rabbit warren trip that lead me to them. However they kept popping up and YouTube made me realise I’m not that environmentally friendly. I use a huge deal of disposable items, (more…)
