A little Etsy wedding love

 Etsy, Etsy, Etsy. What you do to me and my wedding budget...


Apologies for the higgildipigily-ness of this post, the whole blog needs revamping and updating, but in the process of setting up the new blog so I didn't see much point and I want to get back into posting regularly!

New Beginnings

Hi Guys!

So its been yet again quite a while since I blogged. Naughty Chloe!

I've been meaning to get my blog on again for some time now, but, as it does, life gets in the way and other things become more important! Well my friends, I am back and hoping to be back with much vengeance.

I have plans, very exciting plans, yes. I'm not going to give it all away now though, buuuuut hopefully in the very near future I shall be opening my own little business. Yay!
I have to say I am quite daunted but very excited at the prospect of running my own little enterprise, but it is still in planning stages at the moment. My blog will hopefully run alongside it to advertise and keep me sane along the way!

With this new venture in mind, I am still working full time so the progress has been slow, but i'm getting there. I'm going to be moving the blog over too, but will notify you of course when this takes place!

In other news I got engaged recently! Yay! I'm one very happy bunny and already obsessed with looking at flowers and centre pieces, god help me.

Keeping it short and sweet today as I'm tired and in need of my lovely bed. I shall keep you updated shortly!

A change of heart...

Hello there! Been a while hasnt it? Well i have quite a lot to tell you...

So i havent really been doing much AT ALL makey wise (i feel shamed) and it was the origanal direction of this blog. Infact i wasnt even really sure what direction i wnated it to go in, i figured id find out as i went.

On that note i have had a total change of heart. For the last few weeks or so i have been thinking non stop about going to university. Now it may come as a surprise (as most blogs i read are by uni goers) i have no degree and never really thought about going to uni. After school i went the generic route of doing A levels. I loved college but so regret not attending more of my classes and getting grades i know im capable of. I did Textiles, Media, Film studies and Photography, got all Cs apart from film studies (?!?) which i got an A in (not actually a full a level).

Now Midwifery is what i have decided i REALLY want to do. Its a bit out of the blue i know, as i havent really mentioned a true interest in it before. Its something ive always admired and thought hmmm that'd be a lovely job. One of those professions that belong on the daydream list i suppose. Well i want to make that dream come true. I don't want to be stuck in admin the rest of my life, working in offices and clicking keys all day long. I want to be running around helping women get through their pregnancy and be a key part in one of the most special days of their life. I want a career an be able to say i did something worth while with my short time on this life.

Now that being said, its not easy getting there, ho no they dont like to make it easy. Obviosuly Universitys no matter what subject you are looking to study dont wnat to just take on any old person. They want to know you are proper serious about what you want to study and that you are actually are going to go on to use that degree in some fashion. Ok so choose any other subject apart from Midwifery and think how hard it may be accepted and your preferred Uni and then times in by 10. You may be cloe to whats its like to let alone try get an interview. In my wisdom i have chosen one of the most popular and competitive degrees to get onto. Fab. But im not letting that stop me...

My preffered Uni is asking BBB a level grades as from next year. Bugger. Its apparently in the top 2 midwifery degrees in the uk. Double Bugger. So since the last week or so i have been researching to death what i would need to do to at least stand a chance of interview. My brain is suffiently frazzled with Access Courses, Distance learning, and the OU. There is so many to choose from. Alongside that giving up my job and going into health care has also been flying about. Oh hind sight where were you when i needed you most. Why couldnt of i thought of this 3 or 4 years ago!!!

So thats the jist of it. Currently im about to have a week of work to stay with a friend, but im also goign to use this time to pop along to the uni and hope somebody can shed some light on what the eff i really should be doing. Ive basically got a year or 2 to sort and prepare myself out. I have already wresteled with the notion of pushing 30 by the time this is all over with, but concluded it really doesnt matter how old i am and worrying about time, there are women out there in their 40s doing it!

Ok so i think ive suffiently ear bashed whoever is reading this enough. Anybody who may have some small piece of info and advice they think may help me (I'll take anything and everything!) please let me know! I shall be eternally greatful!

Peace and love,

Shelf life?

I was taking some snaps around the house ( as you do!) and reaslised i really quite like this small area. Containing some stitched photos i made and my favourite photo of my Mum, Grandad and me quite a few christmas's ago. My Grandad passed away new years eve 2008 and i miss him everyday, but whenever i pass this little picture it makes me smile.

So its well and truly Winter. I always say how i love winter, wrapping up warm and all the big jumpers, and of course Crimbo time, yet im really hating how cold it is at the mo. I think i have a love/hate relationship with the snow, as long as it doesnt turn icy (falling over is not a good look!) i could make snowmen all day. But today was rather rubbish as i finally plucked up the courage to drive amongst the winterness, my car made the saddest little sound. Would not start. Fantastic!

I'm really getting inot the whole blogging thing. Im mainly just browsing and reading others, but really want to make a more regular thing of posting. Pesky job.

Also got a Blackberry after months of torture with my uber rubbish touch phone. I think im addicted, Hoping it will calm down in a week or so when ive lost the 'new toy syndrome'.
Also didnt get the job i banged on about a post or so ago. Such is life.

I have been tres busy this week writing my CV for an exciting new job im applying for, ill let you know what happens...but fingers crossed...and toes, eeep.

So im thinking of doing an outfit post soon...i love autumn and winter styling. Im in love with camel and khaki, and desperately need the perfect pair of chinos!(Ie cheap and lush!) Anybody know of any??

I also got a new camera so have been playing and snapping around. I wish i had a dog some days so i could take more pictures of the big wide world. I dont suppose Daisy would enjoy being taken out on a lead much...
