It has been a while since I last posted. I have been a very busy bee in the last 3 months, dating, working through the Olympics and Parolympics means I had very little time to myself lately. Some of the places I have been are Lincoln highly recommend if you are looking for vintage things like jewellery, fabric or throws and crockery. Highlights for me include Steep HIll and Lincoln Castle. I have also been spending a lot of time in Reading where my beau resides. And I'm back on the Atkins as cute vintage clothes is harder to buy in Size 14. The results mean I have gone down a dress size and can fit in my nearly purchased Swirl of 38 bust 27 waist.

I have been looking at new places to shop for vintage clothing and recently stumbled on the blog http://queen-tree.blogspot.co.uk in november Liz to went Harrogate and in April so did I. I took the coach to Leeds and then got a train to Harrogate. I only had 2.5 hours as train tickets being so expensive with 4 weeks notice. It was terrible heavy rain all day but I finally got lucite.
In the UK it is the dream to be a home owner, you rent on your way up to owning property and you rent because that's all you can do. I have rented four different times, the best times has been with people who are a similair age and background to you the worst is with those with mental illness, unemployed, dodgy lanlords and then theirs a live in landlord. Living with a landlord who does not work is another story it takes a strong individual or those that are missing some kind of guardian figure to like that. To be fair he did inply that he did work and I know for sure if he had said this I would of walked away because thats too much b***s**t to have to put up with. As he doesn't work this is most definately his house, things get repaired when they are broken. I do find it very strange that you wouldn't want to CLEAN when inviting people round. I had a day off I cleaned the kitchen which is my job, yes the area is my job, he gave me a rubbish excuse that i cook the most but I also clean up straight away so not sure hows thats even valid he uses the kitchen the most as he's in the most and I dont count heating up in microwave as cooking. He was like thank you like I was doing him a favor as he was having guests and I was like no this is my day off for this week, so it's the only free time I have. Opening windows this is important when the bathroom and kitchen have no extractor fans, smells linger so much especially if the wondws mysterious are closed 1 minutes after you opened them and yes its the worst scenario ever don't do it. To top it all the walls are paper thin so you can't even trash talk him. Low wage sucks.

How did you spend your Sunday? I hot footed down to the Christian Louboutin exhibit at the Design Museum on Shad Thames. Me and my friend took the long route, you would of thought having an iPhone would mean you couldn't get lost, but my friend doesn't know how to access it and I don't have a smartphone so didn't know either. Finally we made it! Through the black curtain we went to feast our eyes on deliciousness. One tip I would suggest when visiting the exhibit is to make a be-line to the popular spots during Dita 3D dance, everybody stops in their tracks. The 3d video is every 15 minutes so you can always catch it later. Im not going to spoil it but their is plenty to look at, and plus my friend is taking her time to upload the iPhone pictures. And you can get the gest of the exhibit from this link at Dezeen blog http://www.dezeen.com/2012/05/10/movie-dita-von-teese-hologram-by-musion-for-christian-louboutin-at-the-design-museum/ I wore this and my brown dr martin wedge shoes, their were two types of ladies who visited those who were heels and those who prefered comfort, I mixed them both.

I think everyone has a family or member or friend whose style they admire. I admire my Aunt Jessica interior style, her favourite magazine is Elle Decor and her home interior is worthy of a feature in the magazine. The downstairs toilet walls are covered by comic pages, she has angel wings above her bed, the kitchen top is glittery curtesy of previous owner and much more. She is moving sticks to pastures new so I thought I would a do litte homage to my dream house.I want a en suite bathroom like this.
