Sorry for the lack of posts, I've been ill with flu and a chest infection and I'm on antibiotics now, so I'm getting better but very slowly. I also went away to Wales for a few days, so I haven't been around much, but I hope you're all well.

This is just a really quick post to say hello...And also, who's going to the Eyeko event on Saturday?

Can't wait to see you there!

BIRTHDAY WEEKENDER: Nobody Puts Baby in the Corner

In the final part of my birthday weekender I went to see Dirty Dancing on Monday night. I got tickets from my parents for my birthday for myself, Mum, my best friend, Nicola and my cousin Fiona.

It was absolutely brilliant, and if you haven't seen it, and are a fan of the film I urge you to go and see it. I can't reccommend it enough, the atmosphere was truely electric and as soon as it finished I wanted to watch it all over again!

Here are the photo's from the evening...

Sunday was my birthday and we had a barbeque with all my friends and family, here are a few of the snaps...



After my make over day in London on Friday, I got home and shortly after my two lovely Welsh friends who we met in Jamaica arrived, they got the coach down from Cardiff to come and stay for the weekend, so we had some mega embracing, a few glasses of wine, and settled down for the Big Brother Final and some catching up.

Saturday was spend shopping and going for luncheon with the girlies, before coming home to get ready for a night out on the town.

The majority of people came over to my house first, and here we all are looking all dressed up and pretty...

A few snaps from the evening...

BIRTHDAY WEEKENDER: Make Over & Photoshoot

Hello lovely's,

There has been a lack of posts recently, so do forgive me. There has been a very good reason for this, as some of you know it was my birthday on Sunday, I turned the ripe old age of 24 and I celebrated in style, and just havent stopped ever since. Today I finally have a day to myself, so I thought I would get a few blogs in for you.

On Thursday night my boyfriend told me that as a surprise I was going to have a make over and photoshoot on the Friday. I had a frenzied panic, "ahhh what clothes am I going to take" feeling nervous and up until about 2am Xen-Tanning myself.

Friday arrived and I took my big red bag full of clothes and hot footed it to the tube station heading for my Oxford Circus destination.

(by the way I've had brown put in my hair, what do you think?)

I won't state the name of the salon, but when I got there I found out the girl who was supposed to be doing my hair had called in sick that day, so now I had another guy doing my hair, as well as doing 3 other peoples all at the same time, so I felt it wasn't very personal. Also, my boyfriend had paid a higher price so that I could have unlimited drinks all day. Well I was never offered a single drink.

After my hair was pinned to set, I had my make over, which I cannot fault, my MUA was lovely and we had a good old chin wag. After my make up was applied, I was sent to sit in the downstairs waiting room, where I was left for about 45 mins, still in my gown, before I was called up again to have my hair finished.

Once the hair was done, I finally had my photoshoot, which wasn't as scary as I thought it would be. After the photoshoot, I waited about an hour to view my photographs, and I was the last one there.

For the price I would imagine that my boyfriend would have paid for this experience, I think it was absolutely shoddy on the salons behalf. I am treated with much more hair when I get my hair done by my own hair dresser and she comes to my house. To not even offer my a cup of tea when I got there, I mean come on! Isn't that general politeness?

I thought the day would be an absolute pamper day, where I would be looked after, but it just didn't feel like that, and all the waiting around actually made me stressed.

Having said all this, I did get some great photographs, and needless to say this experience was a one off.

I am very grateful to my boyfriend for getting me this for my birthday, it's just such a shame I didn't get the best out of it, but here's the outcome, and I think the pictures do outweigh the bad experience.
