A Little Catch Up & Stocking Fillers Under £10…

I feel like I’ve not spoken in absolutely ages; that I’m neglecting the blog somewhat.

It doesn’t help that I’ve spent the last week, laid horizontal anywhere I can, not feeling too great myself. I was even poorly on my birthday . Great timing eh? I appear to have the dreaded lurgy that is sweeping the nation . They are dropping like flies at work. Even Mollie dog is under the weather!

Well I am here to rectify that today, a little snotty with a tickley cough [ that’s driving me bonkers ]  but here.

So how the devil are you … and are we all ready for Christmas ?

Are you fed up of being asked that question yet? I am … and no I’m not [ ready ].

I’ve not even put my tree up ! I have ordered Harry Styles new album but no tree. [Priorities] Yes you heard correctly – my Christmas tree is not up

“Good god woman” I can imagine my mum muttering from above “pull your finger out!” I’ll no doubt be getting struck by lightening if it’s not up in the next few days ! … Continue reading

L I F E | dancing for the both of us …

Sometimes I feel so ‘full’ that I could burst. I’ll look around & see people enjoying themselves; shiny happy people as ‘REM’ coined them.

I feel overcome with a sense of enormous emotion , you know the kind? Warm ,fuzzy and all consuming. You are so glad to be alive, surrounded by the most amazing friends and family . You feel like you could combust with happiness . You want to group hug everybody.

M U S I N G S | talking point Tuesday – Instagram

I look at my squares over on Instagram , and I look , scroll and admire alot of other peoples. Its hard to not compare & to think everybody else’s lives look way more exciting than mine .

Still after all these years [ 7 if you are asking ] I’ve not yet hit the 15k mark. Over 3,000 random squares with no specific theme. I like to think I’m relatable, though I’m not so sure how many 48 [ almost 49 ] year old women prance around their gardens and stand posing like a plonker against a white wall. I share my arty product shots that I arrange on my coffee table in front of the TV because I like to think I work for a magazine. I sing in my car on stories, because I sing constantly in my car in ‘real’ life.

It’s very samey, very normal everyday life with a little bit of magic [London fashion week, M.A.C launch parties, and meeting celebrity chefs.] thrown in every now and again.

B E A U T Y | M.A.C ‘Starring You’

Press Event & Hotel Stay as part of my role as Regional Brand Ambassador. I am not under any obligation to write this post

On a rainy , dismal Thursday October evening what better way to spend an evening than under the stars [quite literally] in London’s Natural History Museum celebrating the launch of the new ‘Starring You‘ holiday collection from M.A.C cosmetics

I have never been to the Natural History Museum before but from what I saw it’s an impressive, beautiful building.

I didn’t see the whale ! I didn’t see the ice rink either but apparently I walked right past it on the way in.

Note to self – must go back and find the whale. .. and the ice rink ! #blindasabat

We were led to the Moon Room. Don’t quote me; I’m sure that’s not it’s official name.

It looked absolutely stunning . Like something you’d imagine cropping up in a Harry Potter movie … only the grown up version … with Prosecco. Here’s to always being gobsmacked; in awe of your surroundings with a childlike wonder !

I am currently trying to figure out how I can work a moon and stars into my tiny living room decor?
