1.  Arty Building in London I was in London earlier this week and saw this funky building – I just had to take a photo of it. London is filled with quirky stuff like that!

2.  Inside a Canal boat! I decided to visit the London Canal Museum whilst I was there as it was literally only around the corner from my meeting. My visit was short lived though as it turns out a school were having a field trip there so it was filled with screaming kids!
3.  Canal boats on the river Pretty huh?!
4.  Weird dude on TV My Dad loves watching old movies and I caught him watching this yesterday. I don’t know what it is, all I know is that the character in question was making very weird hilarious faces. It amused me.
5 & 6.  Posing around after curling my hair Please excuse my miserable face! I rarely ever curl my hair properly as it’s so thick it takes me hours and never comes out the way I want it to. However last night I managed to do it quite nice and just had to take a few photos as I was so pleased ha! Proof that I can curl it properly if I put enough effort in! Oh, also, I’m not naked in the first photo! I’m wearing a strapless top haha!
7.  Pretty make up I just really liked my eyeshadow, ha!
8.  Lots of traffic in horrible weather We went to see The Avengers today and it was SO good! We went to see it in Milton Keynes and it was so busy, this was taken just driving out of the centre, there was traffic from right outside the cinema/entertainment complex for like 10 minutes out of the centre afterwards. Madness.
9 & 10.  Posing about with my skull Yes, I own a skull. Like I said, my make up/hair looked pretty good for once so I wanted to take some photos. I uploaded the photo to Facebook and asked people to help name my skull, I got some weird suggestions! My favourite names so far are Roger (coz he has big eyes like Roger from American Dad), Maurice and Nigel Thornberry. LOL
This week I’ve been –
Watching…The Vampire Diaries
Reading…nothing! I’ve ordered a book called Married with Zombies (and it’s sequels) and 50 Shades of Grey to read on holiday though!
Listening to…Train – Drive By
Playing…Draw Something on my phone
Smelling of…Harajuki Lovers Fragrance – Lil’ Angel
Perving on…Pete Wentz and Andrew Goldstein
Loving…the fact that I’m officially and editor now and that I go on holiday today/tomorrow!
I’ve had an awesome exciting week this week! We think its all down to the fact that my Dad gave a gypsy woman a quid after she begged for money and she gave him and my Mum some lucky charms. My Mum won some money on a scratch card and my Dad got offered a job the same day! Very lucky! I’ve also had some EXCELLENT bloody amazing news. If you haven’t already read about it all over my Facebook & Twitter (where have you been?!) – I’ve got a new job. Not just any old job, nope, I’d like to announce that I am now the editor of London.com 😀 It’s the most amazing opportunity ever and not only am I going to gain some really great contacts but it’s also hopefully going to lead onto some other great opportunities. Please don’t go on the website, we’re re-launching it in July. There are so many perks to the job as well! Anyway as you read this I’ll probably be on the plane or I’d arrived in Egypt right now (this is a scheduled post) and I can’t think of a better way to spend a week relaxing before I get my bum into editorial gear. I hope you all have a lovely week and speak to you all soon!
P.S So addicted to this song right now…

I heard about this event through Bex a while back and immediately went and found out more. Blog It For Babies takes place from Sunday 29th April to Friday 4th May and among these days, bloggers from across the UK are coming together to raise awareness and funds for the Save The Children’s Built it for Babies campaign.
Blog it for Babies hope to raise money for selected equipment for a delivery room in a healthcare clinic in Bangladesh. Depending on the amount of money raised, they can provide anything from a full delivery kit containing a complete set of equipment for delivering babies, to a skilled birth attendant for a month! You can find a full list here.
There are many different ways in which you can get involved, for example some suggested methods are to donate simply £1 by text, spending 5 minutes of social sharing time to help raise awareness or just writing about the charity.

This post however is specifically about a local event that is taking place near me as part of Blog it for Babies. You can find a full schedule here and on Tuesday 1st of May, Helen from Actually Mummy has arranged an event to take place in St Albans. On the day there will be a Rock Choir Taster, lunch if she can find a sponsor, a bring and buy bake sale and a dance routine instruction from Max. There will also be some raffle prizes to be won!
Unfortunately I cannot attend as I am away on holiday that week, but without a doubt I would be attending and helping to raise money and awareness if I could! If you live locally please do consider coming along to the event and I think it would be great for all you other bloggers to get involved some how even if it’s just a short retweet to help raise awareness. Do check the schedule as well as you may find an event taking place near you!

There is also a Facebook page about the event in St Albans! Please click here to find out more about the event and any upcoming changes/additions to the day!

I’m really gutted that I cannot attend!

Inspire Magazine is back on Tumblr! 
If you don’t know what Tumblr is, it’s generally a photo reblogging website which you can use to express yourself or save images for inspiration. I have a few different Tumblr blogs each for different uses. I set up one for Inspire Magazine late last year specifically for make up/fashion images – I use a lot of the make up images for inspiration! I normally link to my personal Tumblr in my ‘Be Inspired’ posts as a lot of the images come from there, but despite containing a lot of inspiring images, it doesn’t really fit in with the theme of Inspire Magazine and it’s much more personal. I’ve started using the Inspire Magazine Tumblr again. This is great for you guys to log on and look at ideas for makeup or nail art and such, it’s really useful.
Here’s an example of some images you can find.
Very pretty!
I’ve also sorted out the tags as well so if you log onto the website you can scroll through a number of different images as you please. You can also add /archive on the end of the URL to find a more comprehensive view of my reblogged photos like above. However to make things easier, I’ve set it out like so…
Along the top you can see a list of different pages. Click on each header and you will be directed to another page of the blog filled with images tagged under that header. So if you log on and simply want some ideas on make up, just click the make up header and find all images to do with make up, instead of having to trawl through a full blog of various fashion photos. Easy!
Additionally, the ‘Fashion’ header will show you not just clothes inspiration, but generally other stuff that doesn’t come under specific headers. This includes things like accessories, etc.
Anyway, I hope you find this as useful as I am and if any of you are on Tumblr, feel free to follow me/the blog and I’ll follow you back!

Hello everyone!
I’ve decided to give my blog a bit of a makeover. Although I absolutely adored the previous layout, I decided to change it to this slightly more plain looking template as I feel it looks more professional. Please do let me know what you think!
