2012 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The new Boeing 787 Dreamliner can carry about 250 passengers. This blog was viewed about 1,100 times in 2012. If it were a Dreamliner, it would take about 4 trips to carry that many people.

New site design!

As you can see I’ve had a little redesign of the blog! 

I’ve been experimenting with photoshop and got some new brushes that I wanted to try out! 

What do you all think? Any ideas for anything else I could change? Please let me know!

Invisible zip mini haul


Today I went to town and happened upon a bit of a bargain. The fabric stall that is on the market at the weekends had a massive box of invisible zips in all different colours and sizes and the best part was they were only 50p each! So being the thrifty shopper that I am I bought 10…as you do 🙂
Not sure what exactly I’ll be using some of them for yet but I’ve got some ideas of certain projects I could use them for! Namely after some inspiration I’ve had from getting the burdastyle sewing handbook for Christmas!
I also bought some very lightweight 100% silk and a printed polka dot fabric from eBay which I’m hoping I’ll get to use soon, once my deadlines for school and exams are over! Then I’ll be back to sewing for fun again! Yayyy!!!
Has anyone else bought any good bargains recently? Let me know!

Is there anybody out there…? + Soggy Uggs

Soooo, this is my first blog post…ever. Bit daunting.

I had thought about the sort of things I wanted to say, but now. Haha!

I suppose this blog will be about all the things I like doing:

  • shopping (especially bargain hunting)
  • sewing (which I want to get better at)
  • dancing and just chilling, really.

I’ve just been out on a dog walk, in pretty standard British weather…rain, of course!
Despite the fact it is nearly June, (although for all I know, this could be summer!) I resorted to wearing a coat and my ugg boots which are now nice and wet!
Oh well, I don’t know why I expected anything else from the UK!
