Oh goodness, can't believe I haven't blogged about my dog Patch yet!!!Here he is - a lovely little Jack Russell Terrier ... his cute blanket from Japan

He's about 6 or 7 now making him a little grumpy pooch! He also answers to little nugget, triangle, peach, pooch, piglet and fattie.

In his winter jacket

Yep I'm one of those who dress him up heheh but he loves it!! He has heaps of outfits, including a bumblebee raincoat from Japan (I'll get a photo next time), a pink scarf with hearts all over it and a superdog superman outfit! He gets loads of attention when he goes out dressed up.


Sleepy head at 6am curled up in my bed

He loves being warm & cosy and loves blankets...everytime I pack to go away on holiday, I'd find him sat on top of all my clothes in the luggage having a snooze lol :p

Went home the other day to find this little monkey running down the stairs with a pink ribbon tied round his neck ... cute or what!

Okay I'll stop now before all of you starts yawning! More next time!
Do you have a dog? If so blog about them!

Have a great weekend, I have a date with a vampire and a werewolf because IM going to the advanced screening of ECLIPSE IM SO EXCITED WAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I CANT WAIT.

Brighton ♥

I went to Brighton for the first time in the lovely weekend and I LOVE BRIGHTON!!

My bf reckons the sun helped and that I probably wouldnt want to be there in Winter! Nah, I still love all the cute shops & cafes, the beach & candy floss...

Love merry-go-rounds

Think I look pretty good in blonde hair hey

I found £3 on a deckchair so I bought the biggest fairy floss you've ever seen in your life!! yum yum!

mmm cakeeeee ....

Dorset Apple Cake

225g butter, softened, plus extra for greasing
450g Bramley apples
Finely grated zest and juice of 1 lemon
225g caster sugar, plus extra for dredging
3 large eggs
225g self-raising flour
2 tsp baking powder
25g ground almonds
1 tbsp demerara sugar

1. Preheat the oven to 180°C/fan160°C/gas 4. Grease a deep 23-24cm springform cake tin and line with baking paper. Peel, core and cut the apples into 1cm pieces, and toss with the lemon juice.
2. Using an electric hand whisk (I just mixed with a wooden spoon), cream together the butter, caster sugar and lemon zest in a bowl until pale and fluffy. Beat in the eggs, 1 at a time, adding a little flour with each addition to keep the mixture smooth.
3. Sift the remaining flour and the baking powder into the bowl and fold in with the ground almonds. Drain the apple pieces well, then stir into the mixture.
4. Spoon into the prepared cake tin, lightly level the top and sprinkle with the demerara sugar. Bake in the oven for 1 hour or until well-risen, brown and a skewer inserted into the centre of the cake comes out clean. If the cake starts to look a little too brown, cover with a sheet of baking paper after about 45 minutes.
5. Leave to cool in the tin for 10 minutes. Remove the cake from the tin and place on a serving plate. Dredge heavily with the extra caster sugar. Cut the cake into generous wedges and serve warm with a spoonful of clotted cream, if you like.

It. Is. Really. SO. Good!!! With custard!! mmmmmmm

Hope all of you have a lovely lovely weekend in the lovely sun!

Work outfits

Okay so this is what I wore last week to work and personally, I think its perfect for work! But I felt soooo naked and conscious rarrr! I am struggling to come up with outfits acceptable for work and still look good because I literally do not own ANYTHING over the knees. Not even REMOTELY close to the knees. I don't wear jeans, trousers ... nope, not even in the winter!

I wish I could wear shorts & cute skirts to work but it would probably be deemed inappropriate boo! If I had my own office, it would be dressing up daily! Need some inspirations (and money) for work wear!

What is your perfect outfit for work?
