Again i need to SERIOUSLY apoligise for the non existent posts of this blog, i am truly ashamed. Ive literally just had a mass overload of post ideas so im actually getting my butt into doing one! ( I find it hard to motivate yourself when you have hardly any followers but hey ho i guess all blogs start somewhere)
So to start with im going to just show you something i have been getting crafty with recently. Inspired by the lovely lovely Sophie of Dusky Ledoux in her diy flower clip tutorial i seriously got the bug to make lots of lovely bits from faux flowers. I wanted to make something lush for an upcoming festival (more on that laterzzzz!) to wear in my tousled festival mess of a hair. Lets face it festival hair isnt the nicest of dos so a gal needs something to sproos her locks up with!
Enter the Flower headband! I havent actually got a picture of me wearing it yet, only shabby festival ones where you cant appreciate its full glory as i am to busy having a damn good time, but i did take some pictures just after making them. The floppy eared lovely in the pictures is my new bunny i aquired recently, i lover her to bitsssssssssss. Ill perhaps share some pictures of her in a later post so you can ooggle at her gorgeousness
I urge you to read duskys superb tutorial and get your hands on some lovely fake fleurs and start making!
The second part of this post is just to show you some of the bargains i picked up today. After the festival weekend i sensibaly have taken a few days off to recouperate, just as my Mr has, so we took a little trip to the coast just to pass the day really, (totes not recovering i know) plus i wanted to stop by matalan as i hadnt been in a while. I always find with that place there are times where i want to buy everything then other times there is bugger all i want. Today was the latter. Anyway im pleased to say i nabbed a few bargains elsewhere to compensate!
Hawaiian crop £8 and pants£2 both sale at Topshop.
Paris tee £6.40 and socks £1 at New Look, they had 20% off some cute tees. I got the socks to wear with some brogues/future pair of clogs i must purchase when i get paid!
Cropped joggers £7.50 mens section at Matalan, i lied i did actually find something!
The sunglasses arent actually part of todays buys but they were sitting nearby and they were a bargain in their own right so i couldnt resist showing you. Got them from asos last week when it was free next day delivery and i still needed some new sunnies before the festival, so this offer made me extremely happy considering this meant they turned up the day before! I may need to wear some form of body/strappy with the hawaiin top as it does show off rather alot of bra/sideboob. The cropped joggers are purely for lounging around the house/garden in. Im a huge fan of comfort when in my house, i have a habit of getting into my PJs when i come home from work. Plus they reminded me a bit of superdry ones which ive had my eye on for a while but realllly cant justify spending 45 quid on just to lounge around in!
One last note...Im totally obsessed with this stuff at the moment. I got it on disocount from boots not long ago and literally want to eat myself after showering it smells THAT good.
Tarrah for now xxxx

Ok so i want to open up a little shop on etsy/online and also start doing some craft fairs. My trouble is i dont really have a specific theme throughout the things i make, which i think is key to having your own little business, oui? I love everything from houswares, to accessories to hand knitted baby clothes! I just want my things to gel, y'know? I was thinking of having 2 shops on etsy, one for baby things, as its my favourite thing to knit, and one for the rest, what all your opinions?? Help me pllleaseee!I really need to decide what the best direction is for moi....
On another note, to make this post not so boring, i have an obsession with owls at the mo. I Went to sandringham craft fair yesterday, always go with my nanny, and they have a little flying show with birds of prey, which i dont paticularly like so much, except the fact they have owls!. Beautiful lovely birds i think! Anyway im seriously considering buying this lovely laptop decoration thing !
Chow for now

So many weeks ago i mentioned about getting fit/loosing weight etc etc etc. It has taken me up until last week to actually start doing so! ( for many reasons!) I had a little holiday to brighton (more to come on that) and well basically ate far to much. Not only this but i just dont feel good about my body at the mo, i feel unhealthy. So not only in a bid to 'tone up' im doing it just to make myself feel better physically.
Que Pump it up!
May look ultimately cheesy, but its the best workout dvd i have come across. Ive had the burn it loose it one for ages now and it aided a previous weight loss obsession of mine and was verrrrrrrry good! The other one, ultimate workout is the first in the pump it ministry of sound's dvd series and i have seen it before, alot cheesier then the latter with the legwarmers and seemingly gay/straight male in the background, but also quite good! Ive just purchased it as im getting a bit bored of doing the same workout all the time. Both feature eric prydz 'call on me' hoe deanne Berry. Now she may look and sound like a bit of a tart, but i seemed to of warmed to the gal, see what you think anyway. I find it always helps to like the person whos presenting the workout.
I have also started to go running (only twice so far), bought myself some proper running shoes and a cd get me going. I think the recent bursts of sunshine have really helped get me butt in gear and actually run! The cd i bought is called Running trax, another edition to the ministry of sound family. I find cheesy dance music gets me going in terms of excercise, somehow you can find a rythm with the beat whatever you are doing. bizarre.
Anyway that was my wee review for today, i will be back very soon with a bigger and better post, promise! Also finished TWO knitting projects today, Hurrah!
Hope you are all well!

Gimmie Gimmie Gimmie!
Im not usually a cat lover but they seem to be growing on me (not literally), i saw the cutest white kittens in a pet shop not long ago and was majorly pining, my fella however is not so keen, hed rather have a pet tarantula,eurgggh.
Onto something a bit more fashion orientated, just seen this cute little number, debating whether to purchase when i get paid, as i am so horribly skint right now, unfortunately i cant find a picture to steal so youll have to follow the link! I can pictue it looking pretty fab with a slick of red lippy, some ankle socks and my newww vivienne westwood shoes! EeeeEk what your reckon?!
If your a great fan of underwear like me you have to check out Dita Von Tease's range, i happen to stumble on it whilst in House of Fraser and was absolutely gutted when i found out they dont go upto my size :( These are my two Favs anyway...
Only a small post today as i feel i may of bombared this blog with my previous one, but please tell me all about your animal lovess and hatess and what your obsessing over now fashion wise!
P.s i saw some rats today on my driving lesson, my instant reaction was ' awwwwww', should i be worried?!

Ive also had quite a few ideas ive been scribbling to do with tiered necklaces, including feathers and lace and fringe, oh my! Again its a work in progress, all will be revealed soon my sweets!
This is the wonder of The S factor, for those of you who havent tried this little number need to now! I dont know whether its because i have such thick hair or what but this stuff is a godsend. Its called a smoothing lusterizer, and you can apply it to wet or dry hair and style as you wish, it softens my hair wonders, and when i dont use it i really notice the difference. It makes my hair super shiny and lux looking and it feels gorgeous, even the the goo itself feels divine! Annnnnnd it also makes your hair sparkle beleive it or not, when you look at the serum itself it glistens and tranforms to the hair!, Amazzzing! Its just basically an all round great hair product. My hair tends to be a bit dry and frizzy sometimes and its a great tamer! I think you can only buy it in salons and specialist hair product shops, if your a norwicher like me theres a place called Garner just past tesco in the city centre, and they sell it at around £12, Now that may sound expensive, i tend to buy mine online as its far cheaper, and ive been able to nab a 2 fo 1 deal before, shop around! It also lasts an age, as your only need a pea size of serum each time you use it! Anybody have any fav products?!
After a long nothingness of blog, i have now it seems managed to write a whole essay for your reading pleasure!
