Wordle: Untitled">

check out love script and lettering,especially as art.There is an artist I am a fan of called Richard Ardagh who does beautiful prints in amazing typefaces of traditional rhymes and is inspired by old music hall posters.

I will miss them

Last night we were at one of our favourite tea spots and enjoying a lull in calls,just messing about and chatting rubbish and having a laugh and it suddenly hit me I will miss my relief when I leave.I hope my new team will be as funny and will get my SOH and can tolerate me on nights when I'm on one of my mad ones after drinking a Morrisons High energy drink (Red Bull doesnt work for me but these get me hyper!!).

Having said that I am looking forward to leaving,it will be a new start/adventure for me especially as I am moving as well.I can get away from man at work (christened m@w by Moooog I think it was!) too which is what I need.

pirate boots

I'd love some Viviene Westwood boots as Ive always liked her pirate look since the day I discovered Adam Ant who has remained one of the great influences in my life+style+tastes.If I can afford some I think I deserve them after all this time,however the costs of moving are prioity atm so I'm going to check out Ebay or satisfy the need with some studded boots that look to be around in A/W.Just the look of pirate boots conjures up all sorts of thoughts for me-historical influences,music,gigs,oil paintings,they are the sort of item I loved at 12,18,26 and now so some things you never go off do you?

Dorothy Perkins studded boots-maybe a bit pointy?

Vivienne Westwood beauties-£345

I posted about these Carvela ones awhile ago-£120,I'd need to try these on as they are still quite pricey.

tea and gossip

This morning I dragged myself out of bed and did round 2 of car boot challenge-that is selling all my old stuff and clearing the flat as much as possible before moving.It went really well and I made £110 from stuff that I didnt want anymore-and got a bit more sunburnt on my arm-I never learn!When I got back,I popped round to my neighbours for tea and a natter,now anyone who has followed my blog from way back when will probably remember 'white van man' formerly known as 'blue van man'-hes the man in my street who I fancy and who has checked me out on more than a few occasions!Well I havent seen him about for awhile but didnt think anything of it,the reason for that is because he has apparently got some woman in the next road round pregnant,and he is married with 2 kids (this I knew-hence admiring from afar!)!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!shock horror!!!!cheeky bugger,still was checking me out though inspite of having 2 women on the go!!!!

wardrobe re-think

I was reading somewhere (possibly a blog?) how men like Jenifer Anistons style because its simple and unchallenging and they understand it,rather than say fashionable clothes that most women would recognise and admire and covet,and its made me think about the sort of things I wear,and buy-but-dont wear and whether my age is something to do with that and if I should set myself a style to wear and not deviate too much outside of it?On the inside of my wardrobe I always pin up looks I like to inspire me and lots of those seem to be of well cut jeans,a floaty draped top,statement necklace,designer bag and heels so there is a theme there!
Like this;

and this.....

Things I buy but dont wear or get enough wear out of;


heeled boots
patterned dresses
winter coats-this one is due to the fact that for the last 5 years I have driven to work,I used to love buying and wearing a new winter coat!

Things I always wear;
vest tops
ballet flats
boyfriend cardigans
All Saints drape cardigans
long scarves
big bags

so I was wondering if I should buy the best of those items and give up on the things I love but dont wear?I think plainer items suit me rather than frilly floaty things and my good male shopping friend (yes they exist!)says I look better in bright colours,although I prefer neutrals generally-all my dresses are quite loud though-leopard prints,bold B+W prints,pink and purple etc.I love Lauren Conrads look-she wears quite basic items accessorised well with gorgeous bags and big sunnies and beautiful hair,these photos some up the look I like.

I have in the past worn a quite 'rock chick' look,vintage looks,but the one look that I always like is the well groomed feminine look like LC wears and I love my bags/sunnies/jeans so what do you think?
