On Saturday I got the train into Birmingham to meet up with a few stylish blogging ladies for the first time. The lovely ladies were Emma, Claire, Eloise, Rebecca, Kim, Becca, and Maria. We started with a hot drink at Starbucks, then had a yummy lunch at Nandos, and then finished off the day wandering around the Bullring and up to the Christmas German Market. I always forget how much I miss living in Birmingham, it’s such a nice city! The…

 So I thought I would do a little catch up post about what I’ve been up to lately! Now that I’m unfortunately unemployed, I have lots of spare time, so I thought it would be a good opportunity to visit my boyfriend Liam for a week!

This is my collection that I have gained over the years, and almost all of them are still full! I kind of feel like I should save them for a ‘special occasion’ that never comes, and I just like to collect them rather than…

So, as some of you may know from my Twitter, I have been made redundant from the cake shop I work at as of next week. Hard times! Coincidentally, I had a graduate interview the day after I found this out with a big company in my town. Unfortunately I didn’t get the job, as I have zero experience in the field, but it’s all good practice for me! Applying for graduate grown up jobs is really boring but I hope…
