Logitech Keyboard*. My fingers on the iPad (and iPhone for that matter) always catch other letters, so blogging whilst away tends to be put aside, but not no more! It's light to carry, connects to three devices by Bluetooth and doubles up well as a Netflix prop-me-up so it's a win for me.
We're currently in talks about a new kitchen. Since living in our home a year, the kitchen has slowly deteriorated, with us not even having a cutlery drawer no more. We kinda know what we're after, something minimalist with shelves for displaying all those kilner jars and a real wood work top that matches our table and bench, but as we've also discovered lately.. It's quite tricky to agree on somethings! At this rate, we won't have a kitchen until 2016....!
Hooray, it's mini eggs time! I can never ever get enough of mini eggs, like ever! So when Little B was heading to the shops the other night and asked if I had any requests, it only seemed right to bring home a bag of mini eggs. Sadly (and hugely weird), they didn't have any and Little B didn't want to come home empty handed. So he stocked up on the Pick & Mix stuff and filled that bag right up!
"I'm fairly sure that my black vest IS in this pile of black clothes somewhere...."
The internet is a funny thing, in the fact that it can portray us to be something that we're completely not. Now I'd like to think that what you see here is what you actually get if you met me in person (maybe with a little more waffling involved...), however I do have a secret. I'm a complete and utter messy person. Like all the time. Which is completely funny, considering people think that my house is always so tidy and simplistic. I guess I blame my Instagram photos for that (but really, would you really want to see my huge pile of clothes piled up in the dressing room?). But saying that, it's real. I'm messy and my pile of clothes aren't going anywhere - because they're real. We all have these real moments, we're only human, and Simply Be are currently embracing it, by picking bloggers to share their real fashion moments and turn these into a personalized illustration by some very talented illustrators. which I think is a fab idea.
When I was asked for a real fashion moment, I didn't know where to begin.. Was it when I sit writing a blog post about the beautiful embellished dress that I've recently photographed, I'm actually sitting with my slobby clothes on and most likely tissues up my nose, that people would relate too? Or the fact that some days when I take my socks off at the front door, I somehow stuff them into my handbag, and realise when I'm at the supermarket handing over my socks instead of cash, that maybe others do this too? Well no, I decided to stick with something that I'm fairly sure other ladies can agree with. Yep, I'm talking about these wardrobes that we all have which you know are full of clothes, but for some reason, there is just NOTHING to wear.. Weird that.
There are many mornings that I am late for work/meeting friends/or whatever other activity I do these days, because my pile of black clothes that I have accumalated seem to be growing bigger and bigger and eating that black vest that I always cannot find each morning. I'm pretty sure that it gets eaten by the pile every night... Or the cat. His white hair (don't ask why we got a white cat....) and my black clothes really work great together.. Honest.....
So, there's my Simply Be Real moment, because, yep, even with a walk in wardrobe and approximately 150 hangers, I still can't find much to wear everyday. And Katherine managed to portray this utterly perfect, even completing the illustration with both kitties (because let's be honest, you know that wherever we go, they go. And Little B always comes in asking me to hurry up...). I guess some things will just never change....
We do not need the weather to give us the excuse that staying in wins over getting wrapped up and heading out on the weekend. Nope, we're all for curling up under the faux fur throw, with some Lindt chocolate and some poorly chosen TV. And those kitties of course...!
Last weekend was one of those weekends where we did very very little. It was genuinely a much needed time to do nothing with having just finished up a twelve day week. And since Christmas, we've not been around much so little Ralph has had to adapt again, and has probably felt a little lonely. Which would explain why he does not leave us alone, even when we take a trip to the bathroom...
