Hello again fellow blogging enthusiasts? Did you miss me because I've sure missed you. Life feels a lot bleaker spending two hours picking an outfit just to go to the shops. But despair no more, I am back! With a new name, ever so slightly new hair, a bit of a tan, and a brand new laptop and camera! After a solid half a year or so my insurance money has come through and I have been rewarded. But above all this I have a brand new member to the blogging team that was before, just me on my lonesome. I have splashed out and got myself a photo-savvy friend who has been persuaded into enthusiasm about collaborating with me. Her name is Anna and she is most certainly a good egg, and you will come to love her as much as I do but in a totally appropriate way. I feel almost teary-eyed, staring down this path of new beginnings, the journey we are all about to take together...
No. Stop that. That would be silly.
Well, I couldn't rightly make a return without something to show for it? Any beloved followers who had lost their way in our months apart and begun to think I was just pottering about and had completely forgotten about my dear blog, for shame on you, and I think we need to have a frank discussion about your level of loyalty. I have a plethora of photo and tidbits stored away in both a memory stick and my noggin, so be excited - good things to come.
I'm definitely prattling. Getting rusty I reckon. Any road up, my friend group recently had a smattering of birthdays, and as we're all turning 18 this year I had promised myself I would make a bigger deal of birthdays, as I tend to forget and promise to get a present of flowers of something but never do. I've recently become a major addict of Asos Marketplace, a wonderful way of buying vintage and secondhand clothing and jewellery, and when I stumbled on the boutique (as they're called) Ease the Squeeze on there, being a sucker for a rhyme, I had to have a peruse, and was not disappointed. Both these rings are fairly inexpensive (just in case the gift-ees are reading prices aren't good etiquette sorry) and I think they are just so cool. In particular the tiger made me feel like such a bad-ass for the five minutes I had it on.
