Check my shelf yo

Stumbled on yet another cute idea on the tinterweb- - Check my Shelf is a website showing pictures of peoples shelves, it's surprising how much you can tell about a person by their shelf, here are a couple I like:

FYI I found this via another cool blog:
Check it out!

You know I'm starting to fear that I'm becoming a blog addict....ah well, could be worse.....could be crack :D

Updating my life

Have been incredibly productive the last few days, scurrying around desperately to prepare myself for my month in Thailand and whatever lies in store for me after. Amongst other things I've updated my CV and applied for 5 internships for when I get back from Thailand..... I just need to wiggle that foot in the door! In between that today I've decided to update my blog more regularly, afterall I'm not working anymore and there's only so much organising one can do in a day.... So prepare for updated posts galore, wow, your gonna be sick of me :)

Even if it's just posts about things that made me smile. Like these! These pics from make me want to rent a room for the sole purpose of holding books in.

I can't wait to move into a place with Antony later this year- I can see it already, and it's so damn pretty. I'll invite you all over for tea and cake.

Something else I see in my future is one day owning a variety of gorgeous cameras (and hopefully knowing how to use them!) when I get some I'll invite you over for tea and cake and I'll take pictures of you eating it :)

Bit of light on a winters day

Thought I would do another post about things exciting my eyes and ears at the moment- the days seem to be dragging and this winter seems never ending, so here's some lightness on this cold dark day!



  • Chairlift- recommended by my buddy Luke- lovely band with a huge variety of sound, from sweet and fun to dark and powerful- listen to 'Make your mind up' or 'Bruises'

  • Peggy Sue and the Pirates- Not sure if I've mentioned these guys yet, but I am so in love with them it's ridiculous. Have even got tickets to their album launch in March- so excited, listen to 'Lazarus' and 'The Sea The Sea' urghhhh too good.

Hope that's enough to brighten your day! I've officially finished work at River Island and now have two weeks to sort myself out and get ready for Thailand! So excited and yet so scared to be coming home unemployed....will be thrown back into Limbo once more. Good job I like it there. Well ya know, it's so so.
