Never enough hours in the day

Some times I just wish I could stop time.......

Like most people I have so many things that I need to get yesterday. I look at other peoples lives and they seem to be strolling along without a care in the world, where I feel as though I'm running around like a mad headless chicken!

I have so many project that I want to work on that it feels as though work is getting in the way. Well tonight I made a stand. I decided I would do something just for me (kind of). 

It feels as though I've not cut any paper in an age. To be honest the thought of lifting my scalpel just didn't do it for me any more......but tonight I had two commissions I had to work on. So me and Mr F@*ker (the name of my scalpel, because he always cuts me) decided to get off our backsides and get on it.
I'm so glad I's back, I have my cutting mojo!!!!!

     Look out world, I'm coming for you!

New shoes

I have a massive weakness for both shoes and handbags, to be honest I don't care if they are designer of from the high street.

I've had a massive problem since we moved. The removal men put the entire contents of my wardrobe into storage, this included all my shoes. Cue major meltdown lots of foot stomping and and generally walking round with a face like a slapped backside.

But as they say every cloud has a silver lining...I get to buy more shoes!!!

I just had to show you these from Peacocks, a bargain at £5; oh I do love a good bargain.

Something new

I've wanted to learn how to crochet for a few years now and it's been one of those things I've just never got round to.  Well I've just discovered the Bella Coco Youtube tutorials, in them she breaks down the basics to the simplest of terms. They are amazing! If you are interested in learning a new craft then please pop over, her page is definitely worth a visit.

Working on my first project

Finished! A granny square snuggle blanket for H.

Back at it

   Oh my life, just where did the weekend go?

I honestly don't know how we all managed to get through the weekend without killing each other. The rain kept us all in doors for the most part of it. There is only so much Peppa Pig you can take over a 3 day weekend!!

So I've been back to cutting again......paper people, I cut paper!
Unfortunately it seems as though work is getting in the way of me paper cutting. But until I win the lottery (and for that to happen I'll have to start buying a ticket) I'll still have to get up in the morning and head out to my day job......poo.

Super Mummy

Ok, so all crafting is on hold for a little while. Little Miss H is a poorly baby. We are currently on standby waiting for Chicken Pox to show up (it's doing the rounds at nursery), she has the sniffles and last night covered me in Vomit (oh joy).



So if anyone is looking for Mrs Flipflop, I'll be locked away in a contaminated house trying to was away eau de vomit.

Crafty lady

I've always been a crafter. It's something purely for me (selfish I know), chills me out after a crappy day in the office and gives me a warm fuzzy feeling knowing I've made something beautiful. 

So here is my newly discovered craft (drum roll please)........

Paper cutting! 

Paper what I here you cry. Well have a look see. Tell me want you think (please be kind I'm still new at this)

Maybelline Forever Strong Forevermore Green

Maybelline Forever Strong Forevermore Green £4.09

With summer fast approaching I decided to go on a hunt for a new nail polish, something to fit my sunny mood.  Enter Maybelline's Forever Strong in Forevermore Green.   I was immediately drawn to to bright colour, not quite pastel the vibrant shade is very fitting for spring/summer.

Not onto the actual polish. Application is a dream, thanks to the tapered angled brush. I'd covered each finger nail with just two strokes, perfect for when your short on time.  The formular is very watery in comparison to other polishes. I had to work quickly just so it wouldn't slide off the brush and onto the table. I could the first coat went on a little streaky, but was spot on after the second.

I'm I love with the polish and can't recommend it enough. My mani is still in tip top condition after three days, doing the usual household chores, but maybe that's because I went a little OTT with the top coat (4 coats to be precise!).

I think the price is outstanding and I'll defenity add to my Forever Strong collection.  Curious to see what other beautiful colours they will release in this collection.  So peeps, what's your thoughts?
