Hello! I’m resurfacing from under a mountain of rumballs and Lebkuchen biscuits and left over lasagna and scalloped potatoes and a million other carbs to slip a quick post in on this last day of 2014.
I desperately needed a new wallet, so I chose this one from The Iconic (now sold out) and my husband bought it for me for Christmas. I’ve had a Status Anxiety wallet before and loved it. The leather is soft, the colours are gorgeous and bright, and they have a heap of space inside for all my cards and stuff. The only thing with this one is that I think it could use a better fastener than just one press stud on the front, but I suppose it will prevent me from stuffing it with stupid receipts and stuff. I adore the colour. Green is my favourite colour and this is a nice pop of happiness when I reach into my bag.
Other than that, I’ve been avoiding the sales like the plague. Maybe I’ll pop in next week, but I really can’t be bothered this year. Anyone else feeling me?
It’s almost the end of 2014, so it’s only fitting for Kimberley and I to talk about our top 5 movies and TV shows watched in 2014. We both had very different lists, so it was great to compare notes on our top picks for the year. We also discuss our favourite earworms, most of… Continue reading ->
And do you know why? Because of all the FOOOOOOOOOOD! Specifically, baked goods! It’s no secret that I enjoy baking. But throughout the year, unless someone asks me to do cupcakes or a cake, my baking is usually a batch of muffins or a simple cake for the week. I rarely try anything adventurous, which… Continue reading ->
– I’ve been trying really hard to wear more nail polish. I have a crap load of them, and my nails are long and strong at the moment, so I’m trying to wear some fun, colourful polishes. At the moment I’m loving my Ulta colours. So bright and thick and colourful! The plus side to… Continue reading ->
I was very lucky to be sent a review copy of Marian Keyes’ latest novel, The Woman Who Stole My Life, by the kind folks over at Penguin a few weeks ago and I sped through it last week. I’ve been a Marian Keyes fan since the nineties, and this book was fab read! Stella… Continue reading ->
I saw this on Natalie’s blog and loved it. Such a good idea and a quick and easy way for people to learn a bit about the blogger! So, here are mine: 1. What are you wearing? A red Banana Republic t shirt that I bought in Hawaii that is soft as a baby’s bum,… Continue reading ->
Yay, The Pop Culture Hour with Julia & Kimberley is back!! We took a little hiatus while I was sunning myself in Hawaii in October, but we are BACK, BABY! This month’s topic was suggested by a fan, so thank you very much, dear listener! It’s all about adaptations – books to movies, books to… Continue reading ->
While we were in Hawaii I don’t think we had a bad meal. A few people had said the food over there is crap, but I honestly wonder where they were eating, because we ate out at a variety of places and everything was really fresh and really tasty. I think there was possibly one… Continue reading ->
– The above photo is one I took on our holiday in Hawaii. It’s Waimanalo Beach, Oahu, and it is quite literally the most beautiful beach I have ever seen in my life. Both my husband and I agreed it was probably one of if not THE most gorgeous part of the world we’ve ever… Continue reading ->
