The Hart of the Matter

I’m not sure really, being new to all this, whether it’s proper ‘blog etiquette’ to promote a Tumblr page on a Blogspot.  Until I’m told otherwise I’m going to assume it’s okay to do so and urge you all to go and visit one of my best friend’s (and fellow social nut) blog.

Juliet Hart’s so funny and frank and her blog brings together some of the best things she’s found from the internet and little bits about her life and day to day business (sound similar?!).  So click the link, read it and follow her!


A stationary queen’s dream

Some call me weird, some call me strange and others just go for plain sad but I have always had a fascination with stationary and notebooks.  I was the kid at school who had her coloured pencils in rainbow order with her name scratched into the ends of them so no one could steal them.  So knowing that, it may not come as a great surprise to you to hear that one of my absolute BEST presents this Christmas was my Filofax.

I just can’t stop banging on about it.  I think even my poor mother (who fed this stationary addiction by buying it me) is sick of hearing about it – but I just love it.

After hanging my nose over it for literally months, my mum definitely knew the organiser of choice was the pink pocket Finsbury.  It’s gorgeous grained leather that’s super soft and, although it doesn’t come cheap (it retails at about £46 on the Filofax website), it absolutely oozes luxury.  Inside there is enough zips and compartments for any photos, business cards or paper that might need storing in there and there’s even a holder for a handy pen, which just happens to be big enough to fit my pink Parker Jotter pen.

Where the Filofax really shines though is with its wide array of inserts available.  It came pre-filled with a 2012 diary insert, address pages, coloured note paper, to-do lists and A-Z address dividers but a quick look on the Filofax site informs me there is much more available, from sticky notes to maps and even some super cute organiser stickers to colour code and catagorise your diary entries.

Contrary to popular belief, I wasn’t the only one who received a Filofax this Christmas, a number of my friends did too, and it seems they are fast becoming the geek chic accessory of the season – although I have every confidence mine is going to become my life long friend.

Geeeeeeeek 🙂


Hello beautiful…

So here it is, my first ever post…how exciting!

I’ve always wanted to set up a blog – a chance to get my views and opinions out there – and I figured when better than on the cusp of a new year!

I’m going to be honest, I don’t even know what you’re going to find in my blog – just girly bits and bobs that I find interesting in day to day life, from rants to raves, makeup to music and fashion to films to name a few things!
So sit back, relax and I hope you enjoy it! 🙂
