G'Day Mate!

Just a quick one - BIG NEWS!

I mentioned in my last post that i was going to be jet-setting off to Australia in 2012. Well, after alot of thinking, tears, swearing, one emotional phone call and alot of advice later...


I was so scared. I kept thinking 'what if?' about a million and one things, and like most decisions in life i have to make, i just threw the towel in and thought 'fuck it!' Can't even explain how excited and happy i am for the future! I fly out on September 4th 2O12, and will be starting my travels off in Brisbane! Has anybody been there before?

Stay fabulous...

Remember me?

Wow. Where do i start?

I was thinking about lots of things last night, and blogging popped into my head. I miss it so much, and i guess i just lost time to do it with everything that has been going on in life!

I guess a massive update is long overdue, i have so many post in mind for the near future.

I have just been flicking through some of my old favourite blogs, and it really cheered me up on what seemed to be a pretty shit day. I guess the first part of my update would be to start where i left off - so, where did i leave off exactly? Well, for those of you who follow my blog, you may remember back in March when i left my boyfriend and home in Gloucester to move back to Leyland after the relationship completely broke down (see here for recap). Reading that brings back alot of emotion, but in some ways it's nice to reflect and compare to how differantly i feel now. First of all, im happy, and despite all the tears and heartache, it turns out the sayings 'time is a healer' and 'things really do get better' are true.

I started dating in August after feeling it was time to be my fabulous, confident self again. It's been alot of fun, and i'll have to post about the new men i've met along the way and fill you all in on the gossip :) it will probably have a Bridget Jones-esque feel to it.

New York at Christmas isn't happening anymore because of a truly exciting new adventure - i'm going to Australia next summer to travel for a year :) :) :) again, this needs yet another post dedicating to it.

I celebrated my 21st Birthday in June, and did so in absolute style, this is probably the topic i am most excited to blog about (when you see the photos, you will understand why) I also went to Glastonbury and it was absolutely phenomenal, i can't wait to share all of this with you girlies!

Before i dash off to a girly night in, i just wanted to thank everyone for the support i received back in March/April, it was a really tough time for me and people on here aswell as my family and friends were amazing and got me through alot!

I hope you are all well, and i can't wait to catch up on everyones blogs and gossip!

As always, stay fabulous :)

ARGGGGH. If you look back at this post you will remember how much i LOVED those shoes. I didn't buy them because my house/bills rinsed me dry. I literally look online everyday to make sure they are still there haha and NOW they are reduced to £15 each, im SKINT and my family have gone on a cruise, selfish whores. And to add insult to injury, i have recently ordered a dress to match them (that's how convinced i am that i will have them in my life) well i say dress, it's an oversized nude blouse which is fucking phenominal. Im aware of my language, it's 'passion'. Honest. God should just take me now, a life without those shoes, isn't worth living.


Rant over.

Ps - New job is AMAH-ZING! Loves it.
Pps - Going to the races soon, Haydock park i think - what the fuck does one wear?

Staaaaaaay Fabulous!!!

Ahhhhhh im so excited :) As you may have read, i applied for a job at a nursery within a private school. I really really wanted the job, and after an interview, trial afternoon and a week of waiting, i have just recieved the phone call i have been craving. They do everything by the book, so apply for references BEFORE offering the job to somebody, and turns out my references were great, they were impressed and I GOT THE JOB!!! I start on Monday, and it feels like a massive fresh start.

Positives -

* I will meet new people, make new friends (hopefully, haha)

* Be able to go shopping with a lovely wage EVERY month (this is a novelty for me, it has either gone on my house/bills or i was only part time because of uni)

* I will be able to get my laptop fixed, or buy a new one (i think the motherboard has died, booo! always reminds me of the episode in SATC)

* I can join the gym, get fit and slim down wooooooooo!

* I can start saving and BOOK NEW YORK!!!!

* I will be financially independant for one of the first times in my life

I am seriously so happy right now, it isn't just a job, it's a whole new beginning (and there will be PLENTY of cocktails along the way...)

I am also planning on doing a GIVEAWAY to celebrate reaching 50 followers. What sort of things would you like to see? It won't be anything really exspensive, but i think it's more the thought that goes into it. I want it to be a giveaway with lots of little treats, a piece of jewellery, make-up, face masks, maybe something from LUSH? Sweets, accesories... we shall see, i have lots in mind! Watch THIS space!

I hope you are all loving the sunshine (if your lucky enough to have it) What are your plans for the weekend? I will hopefully be celebrating somehow!

Stay fabulous...

Her name was New York, New York...

Hello Angels - this is another high-spirited blog post from me today, feeling rather chirpy :) The sun is shining wooooo! That always puts a smile on my face.

Firstly i'll just waffle abit about my weekend. Basically, i've only just recovered haha i went to a pretty hectic house party on Saturday, where drinking games were involved. I have never done (and intend on never again doing) THAT many shots in my life, not even in Ibiza. It was insane. I crawled home with my friend at 8.30am Sunday morning (dirty stop-outs) and stayed in bed ALL day, the only thing that helped me to partially recover was the rest of my premature easter egg! I have now sworn off alcohol for atleast another week. Also, i had my trial afternoon at the amazing nursery i want to work at yesterday. It went really well but i STILL don't know if i've got the job :( im hoping to find out this week sometime, again, fingers crossed!
What did you get upto this weekend? Anything fun?

So, my post today is some exciting news (not that it's booked yet) but im looking at going to New York over Christmas and New Year for 10 days. Hoping to go on like the 23rd of Dec, have Christmas eve and day there, and come home the 2nd of Jan meaning i would be spending NYE in TIMES SQUARE BABY!!! Just wondering if anybody had been to NYC at this time of year, or at all? What are the best things to do/see? I have a few things in mind, Sex And The City tour, Helicopter tour, Rockfella centre, Ground Zero, Macy's/Bloomingdales, Liberty island, drink cocktails, eat cupcakes and PARTY!!! etc. It will be me and my best friend (who is a guy) we're both into the same sort of things - so suggestions please peeeps!

Oh, just realised i missed out the most important place of all i will be visiting, TIFFANYS ♥ ♥ ♥ and yes, i will attempt to re-create the infamous 'Breakfast At Tiffanys' scene, avec moi (à la croissant and coffee in hands) whilst lusting over diamonds and platinum. Sounds perfection. And no, saleswoman glaring at me through the window, i will not be giving a shit whilst doing this.

I literally cannot wait for it to be booked, i just really hope it happens. It is going to be abit pricey, and means i will only be able to have one holiday this year instead of a few, but heck, it will be worth it.

I saw these whilst browsing NYC related things, they look amazing.

The city that never sleeps.
Excitement is an understatement.

I will definately be visiting here.

Finally, a woman taller than me.
Anybody for a Cosmo?

Love for Louboutins ♥

I have been wanting a pair of 'classic' shoes recently, and i have decided after looking at Kurt Geiger, Manolos and Jimmy Choos, that the only route to take is the good ol' fashioned Christian Louboutins.

So this is the pair i have been lusting over - yes the pricetag is abit hefty, but don't they just ooze class and glamour?

I need these shoes.

I hope everybody is well, i had my first proper girly night for the first time since i've been back home last night - it was so much fun! We had a massive sing along, ate pizza, sweets and easter eggs (very premature, i know) and other various junk swished down with lots of rose wine, apple sourz, and i think there was some vodka involved? It's all a little hazy haha! Im at a friends house party tonight which will invole more copious amounts of alcohol - looking forward to it already!

Oooh i've just remembered, my interview. I was ment to tell you how it all went! Well firstly, i was told that the nursery is one of the best in Lancashire, but you have to see it to really believe it, it was insane. It was like a mansion, it was huge, along with all the acres of land they have which also includes (remember this is a childrens nursery) 4 donkeys, 100 free range cockerels and chickens (some are exotic) 4 goats, 4 rabbits and a massive gardening area where the children are taught and encouraged to grow fruit and vegetables, with a giant greenhouse! I was in awe! I have only known nurseries to have a pet goldfish or guinea pig (which to be fair, usually dies and you have to explain to the children how it went to 'goldfish heaven' etc) but yes, the place was insane.

I had to sit waiting in reception which had Mozart playing in the background, which did have a calming effect, because they were running 20 minutes late. When i had my interview though, it went really well, it couldn't of gone any better, and i have been invited back to a trial afternoon on Monday and i will hopefully find out then if i get the job - fingers crossed.

Hope your all having a great weekend whatever you're doing,

Stay fabulous...

Wooo i've got an interview ♥ (Plus WeightWatchers, Stretchmarks & Jeremy Kyle...)

Hello my fabulous followers - this is yet another hyper post, i don't know where all this excited energy is coming from, but im loving it and hope some of it rubs off on you, especially if you are having a crappy day!

Firstly, as the title says, WOOOOOO I'VE GOT AN INTERVIEW :) Not just any interview though, it's for the best nursery around, plus what makes it even better, is all my gorgeous girlies work there :) We all used to work together in a smaller nursery a while ago, and we were like a little family, but this is a WAY bigger nursery, which means i'd still have the closeness (is it just me, or does closeness not even look like a real word?) of seeing them, but we wouldn't get under each others feet all the time haha! I've only been back in my hometown a week today, and haven't worked for a week and a half and already i am bored!!! I hate not working, and when i see all the scum of Jeremy Kyle who refuse to get off their fat, crack ridden derriers, it really makes my blood boil (hence why i try not to watch that programme anymore) Just a quick one aswell whilst im on the subject, did anybody watch Jezza yesterday? Quite honestly the most appauling thing i've ever seen. Two young thugs, thinking it is completely fine to just go around in their day to day life, holding people at knife point, with machete knives, and threatening them to give them all their belongings and money that they have worked hard for so that they could sell them on and pay off THEIR drug debt. Ahhh, how do people like that exist in this world? It baffles me! Sorry for ranting over a bloody TV programme, but it really got me mad!

Anyway, back to good things - yeah, so i applied for the job that my girls had told me about, and they emailed me an application form back (you have never seen anyone print something out quicker to fill it in, i swear) My friend kindly came and picked it up for me to get it in the next morning. I then received an email that day inviting me to an interview this Friday - woooo! I am really nervous, but looking forward to it and hoping i get the job! Keep everything crossed for me girlies :)

In other news, my 2nd Graze box comes today - finally. They have emailed me three times since my first one, saying that they couldn't send me one because they were out of my favourite treats and i hadn't selected alot of choice, so i've had to choose things for my older brother instead (he's a health freak, who would happily eat rabbit food everyday) Speaking of rabbit food aswell, if i do get this job, the first thing i will be doing is joining my old gym - euurgh, i just got shivers down my spine just thinking about the gym! I seriously need to get fit, i intend to go 3/4 times a week for about and hour and a half/two hours each time, and to accompany this, i will be going back onto Weight Watchers *sigh* i joke, i am actually looking forward to it. I won't be attending the classes, as to be honest it would be a waste of money for myself, because my mum knows weightwatchers inside out and she's my little guru - i say guru, she's the devil on my shoulder..."Do you really NEED that piece of chocolate Laura?..Take the C off Chips, what have you got?...Fridge pickers wear big knickers" haha! Here's a few thinspiration/diet pictures i've just found...

(all photos from weloveit)
Also, and this is quite a big announcement for me to put on here, but i am looking at having (very soon) stretchmark removal 'surgery' - it isn't surgery per se, as it is only laser treatment, through The Harley Medical Group. I have just begun to get very faint ones at the top of my arms, which i despise, so want to get rid of those before they get any worse (especially for summer) i have some at the top, back of my thighs, again which i despise, and my most recent ones on my stomach which HAVE TO GO!!! I had some on my hips which i have had since i was about 13, from when i shot up so tall (im presuming it was that, because i was still thin back then haha) but over the years, they faded and i learnt to live with them. But since getting new ones, through stupidly yo-yo dieting constantly for years, i now want to do something about them. I have tried palmers cocoa butter, and bio-oil and looked into camouflage creams (but they are only temporary) and i have decided enough is enough. I want rid for good, i mean - Harley Medical state that it may only reduce them upto 75%, but i think it's worth it! When i asked my mum to come to the consultation with me, she wasn't too happy, she said i should just accept them or atleast wait until i've had kids - no way, im not planning on having kids for atleast another 8 years, i've got a life to live, and i don't see why i should have to suffer for 8 years, not being able to wear all the outfits and bikinis i want (i think i've talked her round) So i intend on having a consultation a.s.a.p and begin the laser treatment a.s.a.p aswell - hopefully so the course is complete for summer! Im also looking at working away in Ibiza next summer, so that is my ultimate goal to get my body back to a toned hourglass figure that i am comfortable with! Infact, im going to do something even more brave (that glass of water must of had something in it this morning) im going to post a picture (taking in my oh-so glamourous bathroom) of the figure i would like to get back to-ish...

(This was taken a year ago in February, i didn't have stretchmarks on my stomach then as you can see, i was on WeightWatchers and using my crosstrainer, and trying to get slim for Ibiza, if my stomach was more toned, i would be happy with this figure)

Since this picture, i would say i have piled on a good (well, make that bad) 2.5 stone? At a guess, which if im honest, disgusts me - so i am definately on a mission to get back to that, if not slimmer and alot more toned! Im not striving to be 'skinny' or 'thin' because that isn't me, and isn't my body shape. Im 6ft tall and broad, i will never be a matchstick - but i know what im aiming for, a realistic, toned but still curvy, slimmer figure. I'd just like to point out aswell, don't even bother with bitchy comments (this is aimed at people who may view my blog, this is not aimed at my followers) because, believe me - im your worst nightmare :) glad we cleared that up, anywaaay...

Ooh, just thought aswell - did anybody watch that programme with Lily Allen last night? From riches to rags...i absolutely loved it, i think she is so down to earth and normal 'I don't want to be like Madonna..She's crazy' ha, legend. Can't wait to watch it next week! Eeeeh im so sorry for waffling on (again) just having one of those days i guess. So yeah, may that picture be my thinspiration. I don't want to turn this into a diet blog, but i will keep you updated, and let you know how much i lose weekly (i will be weighing myself every Sunday morning) and when i have officially started the diet. I will also keep you updated with the laser surgery, and my interview!


Hope all you beautiful readers have an even more beautiful day,

Stay fabulous...
