30 Day BC – Day 28 : Your Favourite Autobiographical Book

Posted by in 30 Day Challenges, Books, Projects

Did you forget I was doing this? Because I totally did.

I don’t tend to read non-fiction books but an ex boyfriend was quite into biographies so I did read a couple out of sheer desperation. I think my favourite was probably Rolf Harris, weirdly. One other one that I enjoyed was the story of Starbucks, but I’m not sure if that really counts as autobiographical or not?

I think it’s safe to say that I’m more into fiction than non fiction – if you’ve got any books you think will change my mind feel free to suggest them!

Polyvore Love: Yellow Edition

Posted by in A Little Conversation

I’ve been messing around on Polyvore a bit. I forgot I even had an account until Heather started posting her outfit posts and it jogged my memory. I love yellow (obviously) so I thought I’d create a fantasy outfit for a smart casual night out. How cute are those shoes?!

Awe Struck

Posted by in A Little Conversation

Whenever I meet people who have talents that I do not, I tend to sit, open mouthed at just how incredible whatever it is that they can do, is. Dancers especially, since I cannot follow a routine for toffee and illustrators because my drawing skills have never progressed past scribbles and doodles in the margins.

We went to London this weekend to help celebrate a friend’s birthday. We went out to a comedy show, we came home and listened to the inconsiderate bastards upstairs party until 4am (thanks, you bunch of peons), we went out for a beautiful brunch. The good far outweighed the bad, especially since I got to meet Leni. Owen had tweeted me previously saying that I should check out her blog, and I did and my god was I in awe. So it was nice to meet her in person so I could tell her to her face how amazing I think her skills are :) She’s also a really nice person, which is a great bonus, heh.

She’s new to social media (her twitter account is here) so go and give her blog some love. It’s a beautiful mix of food, London life and general whimsy, and who doesn’t need that every now and again?

A Pictorial Update

Posted by in A Little Conversation

Things have been a bit quiet over here on Falling Forward. Partly due to the fact that I can no longer access my blog at work (they force us to use IE6 and it’s slowly killing me, I swear) and partly because things have been a little hectic of late. I do miss this tho, so here’s a little update of what we’ve been up to lately.

My girlcrush, Liz, is a Barry local so she took us to Barry Island for an ice cream and a wander around the pleasure park. It was awesome.

Here she is. Isn’t she cute?

We also went to a Singstar party, organised by the brilliant Amy (who managed to not be in any of the pictures because she took them all, sneaky.) I curled my hair, for a change.

(I won the tournament, and thus the bottle of expensive champagne. Parttaaay)

Q and I went to Sutton for a friends birthday.

& I made drunk teeth in photos without actually being drunk. Oh dear.

So sorry I’ve been away a bit. It’s been such an awesome summer tho, and I haven’t even touched on Cardiff Blogs, Cocktail Club or being on the radio yet. That update will have to wait since as usual I’m late for work and I haven’t even started getting dressed yet. Oops.

Ps. You’re all having a great time too, right? Aces.

Pinterest: Yellow Love

Posted by in A Little Conversation

I’ve been browsing Pinterest again for beautiful, intriguing things. This time, it’s a round of all things yellow (because we all know that’s my favourite, right?)

I adore this print. It reminds me of a friend of mine who always used to say “cold hands, cold heart”. Luckily for me, his hands were pretty toasty. (£12)

Can I ever have enough yellow clothes? No. No I can not. (£35 & £45 respectively)

I love all these Washi tapes. If I could afford it I’d buy myself a whole group of them and tape everything in site.

These shoes are the reason I ended up buying a pair of bright yellow heels as my wedding shoes. ($310)

 

Fox! Yellow Fox! (£22.68)

We can just go ahead and file these two under bags I don’t need but definitely want.

Feel free to buy me any (or all, ha) of these things. I’m not precious about receiving gifts ;)

All these images can be found on my Pinterest account with appropriate links back to where they were found originally.
