Valentine’s Day Truffles.

February 17, 2010

I made these for the boy, for Valentine’s Day- which we spent in the living room, on a picnic rug, surrounded by good food and candles and watching films- The Princess Bride and Chocolat. Perfection!

Truffles made from this recipe here.

Happy Valentine’s

A Bit 90’s?

February 6, 2010

This turned out looking very much how my friends and I used to dress when we were at High School. I think it was the fault of the army boots, or the boots combined with the Star Wars tee. But I love this skirt! It’s body con, and sparkly! A bit like wearing a disco ball.

Outfits of late…

February 4, 2010

The light wasn’t very good in this one- it doesn’t show my lovely MAC orange lipstick properly. Boo! Just found this shirt, had it since I was about 15- no idea why I still have it, but I think it deserves wearing a few more times.

This is my new work bag. I got it from TKMaxx. So many pockets. It’s brilliant. And the lining is pretty too, decorated with little fans. The headband I made- a piece of ribbon with a bit of elastic sewn to it, and I made a bow out of the rest of the ribbon and sewed that on. Who needs to buy new stuff?

Finally, the outfit I wore for a New Year meal with the boy. We went to a local Thai restaurant. They do the best noodles. Made use of my good ol’ Clairol Crimp ‘n’ wave. I just did a few small sections to liven my hair up a bit- it’s so fine and flat.
