Newspaper Plant Pots

The garden is definitely coming along nicely, although not impressed that just as the weather seems to have got better the forecast says more rain and even snow could be on its way. This does not make a happy gardener!

Tattoo Tights!

I've always wanted a tattoo but can never make my mind up of what I would have, I always change my mind! Spurs boy has just booked in for tattoo number three and he is currently planning and designing tattoo number four. I on the other hand have found another way to get a tattoo.

Sarah Loves...Dyna-Girl

You might know that I review products for Dyna-Girl and Louisa who founded the company was the first person I met from twitter (and I mean actually met). This month's product review was a great product, Tipsy Toes

The Good The Bad and The Ugly of my week

A good week with some very big highs and some lows courtesy of a broken boiler :-(. How are you all?

My First Giveaway!

So this week my blog hit 5,000 views and after I started blogging last June I am pretty happy with that. So I thought I'd do a little giveaway to celebrate as I will be celebrating my success on my mini break to Germany and that seems pretty selfish doesn't it?

So anyway my giveaway; here's what you could win -

The right person

In past relationships I have planned and had holidays abroad but there has always been a very big holiday that has never happened in any of my relationships.

Lovin' the High Street

As regular readers will know the search for a bridesmaid dress for my friend's upcoming wedding has been a relatively hard search. As I'm not a girlie girl I was never going to be loving a big pink marshmellow of a dress and luckily none of my friends like that either so the chances of me finding the right dress had seemed slim at what we had seen. Although the Wedding Show had given us more hope, thank goodness.

Do you have a handbag addiction?

I do have a few lot of handbags, and I think Spurs boy waits for me to moan about needing a new bag and then proceeds to show me all the ones sitting at the bottom of my wardrobe. Yes very clever, but they aren't the exact one that I need for this outfit/event. I need to buy a new one! Then there is the obligatory eye roll from Spurs boy and he leaves me to it.

Alice you're terribly late you know...naughty!

How gorgeous is this Wedgewood tea pot, I want it. Anyone would think Alice in Wonderland was out in the cinemas the amount of Alice themed items around. I'm also loving this necklace from Love Hearts and Crosses

Sarah Loves... Barry M Cosmetics

Everybody needs a bit of colour in their lives, and when I first tried a Barry M nail varnish I knew there was no point in trying any other makes. Through the last year or so I have bought several other of their products and I love the choice and variety of colours and products. Pretty much every outfit you can get a nail varnish and eyeshadow to match, perfection!

The Good The Bad and The Ugly of my week

Apologies for being a tad late at getting this done, seems the time is just passing me by recently. So how was your week?

Sport Relief

Last week I participated in a few Sports Relief fundraising events with my football classes and it felt good to be able to do something for this cause. I admit that I am a bit of a softie at heart and watching the evening's television show on Friday was as emotional as they always are.

Reversy Percy

Oooo now I love Percy Pigs see my previous blog here about them. Nom nom nom

Hargreaves is back!

I said I wouldn't mention Owen Hargreaves again on this blog until he had played at least 30 minutes of football, well Thursday night he played 45 minutes for the reserves against Burnley in the 2-0 win.

Just like getting back an old friend

Watching the Blur documentary No Distance Left To Run about their journey from the late 80's to their return at Glastonbury and Hyde Park in the Summer of 2009.

My First Secret Post Club Parcel

Today I received my first Secret Post Club parcel, and I was totally surprised and happy by how much thought had gone into my parcel.

Seriously Kooky!

One of my favourite twitter friends @SeriouslyKooky was selling these cherry lip balms on twitter for £2.50 inc p&p this past week. Made by herself using natural ingredients I just had to buy one. So I did. Absolutely gorgeous!

Sarah Loves... Delphic

Last night I went to see Delphic at Heaven in London last night. Spurs boy and I had booked the tickets ages ago and only remembered last week that it was coming up. We have both been a fan of their debut album and wanted to see them live.

F1 is back!

Yes it's back! F1 is finally back for the 2010 season this weekend. Excited? Well I am. In fact our home has sort of gone a bit F1 crazy at the moment. Little man decided he no longer liked his Ben 10 themed bed set (although he still loves Ben 10) and he wanted a Jenson Button one. Guess he wants Button to win then?

I love chocolate pralines, butterflies and flowers!

This is just the ideal gift for Mother's Day for me. Marks and Spencer have come up with this gorgeous chocolate praline butterflies with the packaging impregnated with seeds so that when the wrapper is planted it grows into Candytuft plants!

Calling all the single ladies!

This video of Beyonce's song Single Ladies is a pretty iconic one in recent times. Have you tried to copy the moves?

My favourite dresses from the Oscars 2010

I did a blog about the dresses from the Golden Globes so it would be wrong not to do one for the Oscars too. So here are my favourite dresses from the night

Fancy an expensive pair of shoes?

Ever wanted a pair of Louboutin shoes or maybe a pair of Jimmy Choo's but never been able to afford them well maybe you should try Cinderella Me.

Sarah Loves... Simon Baker

I do I love him, just don't tell Spurs boy okay?

He is currently in the hit TV series The Mentalist and he has certainly "perked" up my Sky+ recordings since the second season has recently returned to Channel five.

Don't you just love Spring?

Daffodils make me smile. Spring is here! 

Now since moving in with Spurs boy there has been one area of the place I have wanted to have a go at - the garden. Spurs boy is not a keen gardener and it's fair to say he has no interest in it whatsoever. Well maybe I can change that?

The Good The Bad and The Ugly of my week

Here's how my week has been this week, how was yours? Hope you've all been enjoying the sunshine

Eye Test!

I had my eyes tested today and...I need glasses.

So should I feel upset? Worried? No not me, I'm a bit strange you see (You'd already figured this one out hadn't you?) but I've wanted glasses for a long time. I did even think about getting the fake ones just so that I could have them.

Some Friday Fun - My Favourite Movie Quotes

Here are some of my favourite Movie Quotes, just for fun can you name the films that they are from? Drop a comment below :-)

To Travel or not to Travel?

Why is it I've been spending the last few days daydreaming about going travelling? I don't also mean for a week holiday, I mean travelling abroad and experiencing the wonders of the world!

Gorillaz are back!

Gorillaz are back! On the 8th March 2010 sees the release of the third studio album Plastic Beach. The band is composed of four virtual band members 2D (lead vocals, keyboard), Murdoc Niccals (bass guitar), Noodle (Lead guitar and occasional vocals) and Russel (drums and percussion). The band is a collaboration between various artists, Damon Albarn of Blur is the only permanent music contributor though.

Ruffles and Frills for Work

For work I spend a lot of my time in sportswear but recently I have also been in suits. I have found the plain shirt and suit to be too harsh and makes me look "frosty" and although I want to mean business :-) maybe this is not the right way to go about it. Also I'm not about to start wearing pink!

Next iPhone Application - FAIL!

I downloaded the Next iPhone Application the other day as I do like to have a browse around the internet, have you noticed? Anyway I thought this one would be ideal for when I'm bored or commuting and need to find a certain outfit but this is in no way a good choice. Luckily it was free or I would be really mad.

Sarah Loves... Lolita Glassware

I've never really been one for collecting anything, and then I realised when moving in with Spurs boy that I had got a little collection of Lolita Glassware and it has since got more. I was given the Celebration Martini Glass for my 25th birthday from Bestie and then in recent years my collection has grown. Each one is as individual as you are or the person you are buying it for and each glass has the recipe from which the design was chosen for on the bottom of it.
