Yes it's another ramble from yours truly...I have lots of random thoughts so often it's just good to have a ramble post and get them all out at once!

1) First of, I just want to draw your attention to a blog which I have really been enjoying.  This girl is laugh-your-ass-off funny, I love her stories, her posts about her life and I am convinced that we were friends in a former life (we even agreed to Blogger-stalk eachother!).  Check out her blog But Enough About You.  She is so lovely, you can't help but warm to her!

2) I was reading a section on MSN yesterday that really made me laugh, it was called Top Ten Lies Women Tell Men.  They included:
  • "It wasn't that expensive"
  • "Nothing's wrong, I'm fine"
  • "I don't know where it is, I haven't touched it"
  • "It was on sale"
  • "Oh, I've had this for ages"
  • "I didn't have that much to drink"
I have definitely uttered these words MANY times to Chris in the past!  God knows how many times I have thrown shopping bags into the wardrobe when he gets home...although I'm never sure why because I always buy clothes with my own money.  I guess I just don't want to justify why I bought yet another pair of shoes when I have 5 unworn pairs in my wardrobe! And I think we have all told a guy nothing is wrong when there is quite obviously something wrong.  We always want them to figure it out for themselves though!ha ha.

3) I remember when I first started watching Kandee The Makeup Artist and I didn't know that much about who she was and her history.  Then I watched this video and it actually brought me to tears! If you havent already watched this and you like Kandee, then give this a watch.  I know that some people may find her cheesy or too sugary but I really do think she is a lovely person.  God knows how she ended up so positive and happy after everything she has been through...

4) I have just been reading up on what vaccinations I need to get before going on honeymoon to Malaysia and it's SCARY.  Apparently I will have to get injections for Hepatitis A, Typhoid, Japanese encephalitis, Hepatitis B, Rabies and Measles/Mumps/Rubella.  I'm not terrified of needles but that's a heck-of-a-lotta injections!

5) Me and Chris were talking about inspirational/poignant songs the other day and whenever I get onto that subject, I always think of The Verve 'Bittersweet Symphony' because I heard it one day when I was alot younger and in a very bad relationship.  I was in so deep that I felt hopeless.  I won't go into it too much as it's hard to talk about but when I heard this song one day, I had an epiphany and I suddenly decided to do everything I could to save myself.  I really do believe that music can be a powerful thing.  What songs do you find inspirational?

6) Blog Sale and Ebay items - My blogs sale is still on so please let me know if there's anything you want...I will close it on Thursday at 12pm.  The Ebay items I mentioned in my last post are closing at around 3pm today.

7) I'm really getting into this Green Tea thing, although I prefer the one with Lemon.  I have been drinking two cups a day for a few days now and I feel brilliant! My skin looks so radiant and I'm guessing that's because of the Green Tea's super anti-oxidants! I like to add a little bit of honey to mine just to make it a little easier to drink.  Even Chris has started drinking it too!


  1. I definitely need to get on the Green Tea everyone seems to be raving about it. Just a bit worried its taste like Pond Water! xx

  2. You have to get Yamamotoyama Green Tea - it is the best I have ever tasted - I'm addicted!

  3. > I've been lusting over the grey knotted platforms too!

  4. Hi, I LOVE YOU. Haha this post has definitly made my whole day. I shall be replying to your email tonight when I get home (naughty Jo at work!) I love our blog stalkings.
    "it was on sale". I do this SO much. or, even worse, I turn it on him. Example:
    "Is that new?"
    "No, you were with me when I bought it! God you never rememebr ANYTHING!"
    I'm evil.
    I know exactly what you mean about being in a bad place and music inspiring you to make changes in your life. I was in what sounds like a similar situation to you with an early relationship, and I remember listening to the "SATC Finale" version of Candi Staton's You've Got The Love. I know it;s a bit cheesetastic but it really did give me strength at a tough time. if there's one thing I've learnt in life, it;s that no matter how many people you have around you who you love and who love you back and will be there to support you through everything, the most important support you have is yourself. If you can;t be strong for yourself, there's no chance. In a way, you have to be your own best friend.
    I;m having Green Tea now! Yum yum :-) I definitly noice a different to my skin with it.
    Also, I;m gunna watch Kandee's video when I get home.

  5. 2) I never lie to my bf except when I tell him that I'm ok when I'm not, hoping he will figure it out himself lol
    7) I've started drinking green tea instead of coffee for about a week now. Coincidentally, my mum asked me if I wanted any while I was reading this post! xx


Please leave a comment if you get a spare mo, I read every single one and I love hearing from you guys! I will always try and answer any questions you leave :)
