Another Giveaway featuring @TempSec

I said I would do another giveaway didn't I?

Well this one is fantastic and it involves some lovely jewellery items from Temporary:Secretary. They have recently launched their new website and are looking into future expansion plans.

Sarah from Temporary:Secretary says
"Temporary:Secretary’s ethos will remain the same; we want to make people happy and inject a moment of sparkly fun to their day. We want to offer products that will make girls smile, get people talking and build a strong brand which inspires and promotes individuals to stand out from the crowd. That it is ok to stand out from the crowd, and be your lovely kooky self"
So onto the giveaway:

Tears each and every time I see this...

If you follow me on twitter (if not, why not? Lol) then you'll have seen me tweet about a recent advert that has every single time made me get emotional. It never fails, even now if I hear the music from the advert in another room I start to cry. You all know the advert right?

Where is your writing space?

One day last week I was at home working surfing the internet for new pretty things to buy when the doorbell rung. A little while later it was apparent that some furniture was about to be delivered, like right now. I didn't know anything of it, Spurs boy and I had looked at some furniture ideas for the hallway but we hadn't ordered anything. It had to be a mistake.

Sarah Loves... MAC Cosmetics

For years I used to want to be able to purchase MAC Cosmetics and it was always the dream growing up of being able to afford to treat myself. Sounds silly doesn't it? I don't care, it's true.

Feel this By Haley James Scott (Bethany Joy Galeotti)

One Tree Hill is still one of my favourite TV programmes and Season 7 will soon hit the UK, although I'm not sure I like the fact that Hilarie Burton (Peyton) and Chad Michael Murray (Lucas) have gone. I've been watching a bit of the old stuff on E4 recently, and for some reason I have even Sky+'d some even though I have them all on DVD. Weird.

Just the result we needed

I'm not bragging. Honest I'm not. Ok maybe a little, but not a lot. Poor Spurs boy!

The Great Debate

No this isn't going to be about the upcoming elections. This is about the biggest debate of recent times and it's going on in my home right now. Just who will be victorious at Old Trafford on Saturday...

Which colour Filofax should I get?

I have decided to buy a new filofax...or two. Anyway my dilemma is which colour so this is where you come in. I've decided on the Filofax Classic Personal Organiser in A4. It comes in black, brown or cherry and I just cannot decide. Help. Please.

Did he really just say that?

I've been pretty slack with catching up with my Sky+ recently. Have any of you been watching Sky 1's A League Of Their Own show? I absolutely love it. James Corden is a great choice of presenter for this programme with Jamie Redknapp and Freddie Flintoff as team captains.

Sarah Loves... Spotify

Have you used Spotify yet? If not, why not? I hardly even open my iTunes anymore as Spotify is my music choice.

Blur are back!

Blur are back with a new single "Fool's Day". Enjoy. Cracking stuff.

The Good The Bad and The Ugly of my week

Another week over and the sunshine has arrived. Please stay Mr Sunshine! Hope everyone is well. How was your week?

Surprise Packages

I love my Secret Post Club parcels, this is now my second and again so very pleased. This month I was sent something from Elaine Scott

Just keep swimming!

You know when you're having a bad day and you suddenly just could literally burst into a ball of rage. What do you do to stop yourself? Count to ten? Go for a walk? Talk it out?

Well for me I sing this

Wednesday, 14 April 2010


Some of my Twitters followers know this weekend I had my first @reply from someone who left a personal and particularly hateful comment about a member of my family. I stupidly commented back as I completely saw red and was so angered by such an ignorant comment, but particularly as the comment was against someone I love. 

I want my own library!

I'd love my own library. No really, I would. I currently have all my books in genre order and then author alphabetically in our study (Geeky? I don't care**) My books are on one side and Spurs boy's are on the other. I have more than him...just about anyway *goes to re-count* Yes I have more than him :-))

Sarah Loves... PaperWheel Press

I love stationery, I do! I have been known to buy a whole new set of stationery items for just a new project so you can imagine now that I work freelance and have several work projects on the go that this means several stationery purchases have been a necessity expense.

The Good The Bad and The Ugly of my week

A very strange week all in all. But glad the sunshine has been making an appearance this week. Always a plus!

How are we all?

Goodbye Powderfinger...

Today Powderfinger announced that The Sunsets Tour later this year would be the last tour and that their recent album Golden Rule will be their last. I'm in despair...

Sex and The City 2 Trailer and oh wow Aidan...

After just writing my post Plastic Joy Award! it seemed funny to find this new clip of the new Sex and The City trailer and see maybe there is trouble in paradise for Mr Big and Carrie?

The Plastic Joy Award!

This award was created by Tattooed Mummy over at her blog... She states:

My Review: Reebok Easytone Trainers

When I had injured my hamstring I couldn't try out my new Reebok EasyTone Trainers, but as soon as I was back to running I could start wearing them. I admit that I was a bit dubious of them at first though and I'll explain why.

You're a little late, I'm already torn

Back in February I wrote Songs that seem to follow you and again in the last week another song has been following me, and this time it was across land and sea also. The song is Natalie Imbruglia's "Torn", it's a great track and only when you hear it again do you remember just how good it is.

Sarah Loves...Books

I love books, I always have a book next to the bed but I have been known to get into quite a lapse reading pattern. Admittedly it does depend on the book, some I can take a few days to get through and others can take me weeks and dare I say it months.

Hayfever.... Atchoo!

Sneezing has come early for me this year - Ah the dreaded hayfever curse. For years I used to take antihistamine tablets and I was fine, well no not exactly fine but I coped.

The Good The Bad and The Ugly of my week

Happy Easter all I hope you have all had a lovely long break, if you have been unfortunate enough to have been working I hope you are on at least double pay. I used to work in retail and now love my weekends even more than I ever thought possible!

It seems funny to be sitting writing this as I gaze out of the window and I can see the sea. Spurs boy and I have taken Little man and my brother to Cornwall for the Easter break and we have had a lovely time. What have you all done? Too many easter eggs?

Chris Kamara misses Portsmouth sending off - PURE GENIUS!

It would be fair to say it was a terrible football day for me and Spurs boy yesterday. We spent the afternoon in a gorgeous little pub in Cornwall (another holiday I know) watching the football. We were talking with locals and at the time (United's match was over) and Spurs were 2-0 down so you can imagine the mood :-( But Chris Kamara on Sky Sports Soccer Saturday programme can never fail to make you laugh, and especially after this one. Pure genius!

Is it really the end for Jack Bauer?

It was announced at the weekend that the current season of 24 (Season/Day Eight) will be it's last. I wasn't really surprised by the news to be honest as I have found recent series to be a little predictable.

Twitter Follow Fridays

My #followfriday lists on twitter are now so big that recently my timeline on a Friday just became a list of names and left me hardly any time to actually tweet!

So I have put together two lists of my #followfriday recommendations:

Easter Chocolate... Nom nom nom!

We're heading to Cornwall for the Easter break and this does not mean we're not taking any chocolate treats with us! Haha! My brother and of course Little man are coming with us and the eggs have been bought and very well hidden. Us being away the past few days means that no one has been searching for them. Have you got your eggs? Have you had to hide them away and I mean from yourself?
