Comments or page Views?



This one is for all the bloggers out there, I see a LOT of good blogs lately with only a few, if any, comments on them. 

My comments are down, but my views are wayyyyyy up. (thanks mum) 

What I want to ask this question of the bloggers out there is this,

Would you rather have high page views, with little or no comments. Or low page views but lots of comments? 

For me it is all about the comments. I love it when something I have written makes someone take a minute or two of their time to think about, and write a comment. But I know that for some people, page views are very important. 


So let me know.

Views or Comments?

Taylor Swift, Pop Crack giving you one more hit



I have come to the conclusion that Taylor Swift is the pop equivalent of crack. just when you think you have weaned yourself off, she come back with another hit and you find yourself being sucked deep into a pit of despair from which there is no mercy.



"Shake It Off" you say, Taylor?

Seriously, get out of my head. What is it with these songs,and especially this song that means it chews into my brain and refuses to leave. (On the plus side, it has taken out another meaningless peace of crap that was just taking up space in my head, so, ya know? Every cloud)


Taylor Swift is possibly the most annoying, meaningless, soul sucking pop princess that has ever been created. I am not a fan (Did you guess?) and yet...........

I can't get her fucking song out of my head. 


AT ALL.

It refuses to leave. It is like those people you meet on holiday that you swap addresses with at the end of the holiday. Never expecting to ever have to see them again, they come to visit and then drink all your booze and overstay their welcome. There is just no getting rid of them, they just keep coming back. Yep, we all know the type, and if you don't, then you are those people. Taylor Swift is THOSE PEOPLE and it is not COOL.

The bloody song has been stuck in my head for so long now that I am seriously considering digging it out with a knitting needle, or WORSE..........

It is drastic, extremely dangerous and only to be used as a last resort, but if I cannot extract this song the usual way, then I MAY, if I feel that my health will be endangered, MAY have to resort to listening to Cher Lloyd, Swagger Jagger. (Don't worry, I will make sure that I have someone with me at ALL times through this dangerous procedure)




As ear worms go, you have to admit, this is a bad one.


What can I do?


(You are all going to tell me to Shake it off, aren't you?)


and what song is your ear worm? What song can't you stand but you catch yourself singing?


Let me know.

Has X Factor Jumped The Shark?



Before I carry on, let's make it clear that I have probably watched X Factor EVERY year since it began.

Now that shit is out of the way, here is the deal.

I think it is an open secret that X Factor is fixed, right?

(and if that is news to you, you probably aren't going to want to carry on reading this)

The secret to the X Factor's ten years is that they used to keep it subtle. We knew who they wanted to win but viewers still held onto the hope that they were the ones who voted for the winner.

Those days are O-V-E-R.

This season, they aren't even pretending that we the public matter. This season all pretence has flown out of the window. It has now become SO outrageously OTT and pantomime that it truly is just a joke.




Cheryl Cole Fernandez Versini (Yeah I Googled it, shut it) has been brought back because of her ability to cry on demand, (plus, when they run out of ex X Factor contestants to perform during the Sunday night shows, Cheryl is there. Ready, willing and able to lip synch when necessary.

Louis Walsh is the back of the pantomime horse, he sold his soul to Simon a LONG time ago, he knows the deal and is more than willing to go all outrageous when the script requires it.

Mel B. She's there because Nicole Scherzinger had previous commitments. That shampoo won't sell itself you know.

And Simon Cowell thinks that he is the saviour of a show that has been going steadily downhill and has swept back in like a white knight ready to save the damsel in distress.

The only person in distress so far is me.

What has killed it dead for me is the six chair bootcamp challenge. It is like the producers all sat around getting high on their own supply and while out of their tiny little boxes tried to work out ways in which to REALLLLLLLLLLLY wring out the emotions of the victims, I mean contestants.

(Oh and the audience have began to remind me of peasants baying for blood while watching gladiators being thrown to the lions)

And there the 6 chair challenge was born. Sit down, stand up, sit back down, sing for us, I SAID SING, if you want it, YOU WILL SING.


And these contestants DO want it, they have been drip fed X Factor for the last ten years and are of the opinion that the only way to get totes famous is to be discovered on the X Factor. I don't think these contestants are gullible, I think they are blinded by hope. They are desperate for their chance and will do anything to get it, keep it and if it means they have to go against all that they stand for, well, it's for the right reasons, isn't it? No-one can think badly of them.

But X Factor isn't a singing competition, it is a money making machine that is hand-tooled and finely honed to create a lot of money, be that adverts, the tour, the merchandise. (It is the Manchester United of the TV world, we know they've gone downhill, but those glory days will take a long time to be forgotten)

A good money-making machine will need a script. We will need a baddie, the one the media hates. We will need someone who is AWFUL, who keeps avoiding being voted off somehow until near the end when they are voted off and people then love them. (Rylan, Christopher, Chico) There will be the X Factor DARLING, who will fly under the radar until about half way through when suddenly they are given a song which makes everyone sit up and notice them, they will get excellent staging and setting and suddenly you will wonder why you hadn't really noticed them before.

It is all getting far too cliche for me. I have began to treat the X Factor as nothing more than a glorified soap opera. I feel sorry for the contestants that truly hope that they won't be chewed up and spat out by the X Factor machine, it feels as if by the time their eyes are opened to what is truly going on, it is too late for them.

My question for you today,

Will you be watching X Factor this year?

Or has it well and truly jumped the shark?

Nom or Vom

It's another Nom or Vom Blogger Takeover, yayyyyyyy. I love this because sometimes I get all protective over my personal Noms and don't like to share. Today is the lovely Jessie from http://fashionlimbo.com and her inspired choice for Nom or Vom. 

Over to Jessie.

I’ve always said it: make a girl laugh and you are half way there… but then that would have me lusting after every decent comedian out there, which I don’t - I’m more the see-a-guy-in-leather-with-a-guitar-and-drool kind of woman. There is only one funny man that makes my knees weak, and he’s a bit of a rock star. 

My crush began watching one of his stand-up DVDs. He was wearing eyeliner, lipstick, heels and a satin dress over some sexy PVC trousers. Since then, I’ve seen him wear miniskirts, fake breasts, more lipstick, more fake breasts and have fallen even harder for him. 

I watched him run marathons for charity and became fascinated with his calves, and his terribly tantalising ability of persevering against all odds. I see him in his current “boy mode”, or in any of his many films, and once again I find him irresistible. 

I can’t help it, whether it’s his thirst for a challenge, his impeccable manicure, his hilarious stories on squirrels hiding make-up on trees, how ridiculously attractive can a man on heels get?!

The thing is, dearest Big Fashionista readers, I have met him in person, and I can assure you, not only is he a really lovely guy, he is even sexier in real life.

This is my secret - and now, not so secret - crush. Comedian, actor, runner, executive transvestite, inspirational man: the wonderful, Mr. Eddie Izzard.











So what do you think?


Nom or Vom?

#O2BeTheFirst



I guess by now you all are aware that last week I was down in London with the fantastic crew from O2 to help celebrate the launch of the brand new iPhone 6 and 6 Plus?

I could bore you with how fantastic my experience in London was, I could say some words about how much I enjoy being a customer of O2 and how my tariff is superb value for money. I could even share with you my love for my new o2 iPhone 6 and all the wonderful things that I can do with it.


But I thought, why not show you?

Yes, My brand new Youtube Channel, and even better, everything you are about to see was ALL filmed and edited on the iPhone 6.

Enjoy, press like, leave me a comment.




And just in case you can't see it, here is a handy link for you.

In Case Of Emergency



"In case of emergency" I hate those words. ESPECIALLY, financial emergency.


AAARRGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH.

Be it, The car has broken down and you need the car to get to work, but you can't get the money to pay for the repairs until you have been to work, but you can't get to work until you have had the car fixed. (I can see you all nodding, I guess we've all been there)

Or you have a business meeting next week and you have NOTHING TO WEAR!!! (Looks at wardrobe full of clothes) and if you do have an outfit, chances are you don't have matching shoes (Looks at shoe rail full....oh you know where I am going with this)

Or even the cupboards are bare. You have no food in the house, you don't want to buy a takeaway because you know that money can buy you a couple of days shopping but you must eat NOW.




For me, I have an emergency credit card, one that I ONLY use in case of emergency, and then i make sure it is paid off at the end of the month when possible. (Sometimes it isn't, sometimes it is) but in case of emergency genuinely fills me with fear.

As a single parent I am responsible for the welfare of my three children. Feeding them, clothing them and keeping them warm is down to me, and me alone. I always feel terrified that one financial emergency will mean that I can't do these things for the people that depend upon me the most.

Seeing that emergency card in my purse is my buffer. It is my buffer for my children.

In case of emergency, to ME, doesn't mean that pair of designer heels that I MUST have. It is my safety net.


Unfortunately in this day and age, it is increasingly hard to have savings or money tucked under the mattress for a rainy day.

What do you do in an emergency?


I would really like to know.

LFW, Q & A with Intellicig.



Recently I was asked by Intellicig a few questions regarding London Fashion Week. As most people who follow me on my Twitter account know, I can get pretty vocal about London Fashion Week, purely because it turns into a circus of epic proportions, but the clothes aspect of LFW always excites me (Even though I probably couldn't even get one of the scarves from the collections to fit me)

Here is post that they have written about London Fashion Week

www.intellicig.com/blog/2014/09/london-fashion-week-2014

So I was happy to answer the Intellicig questions, even the ones about themselves. :D



Question 1)

What has been your favourite trend for this season?


What I am currently loving is the re-emergence of 50's style dresses. This season, more than ever, I have seen companies springing up that are creating well-made dresses in a variety of prints, even down to cupcakes. It has been so amazing to finally find a style that I love and am able to wear without people thinking I am dressing outrageously.

Question 2)

What are you looking forward to for next season?

Warmth. Just make me feel warm. Thankfully faux fur is once again a huge thing so I can do my impression of a Polar Bear, a brown bear and even a panda without feeling silly. Sod thin layers. I NEED WARMTH and fur to keep me alive through a harsh Yorkshire winter.


Question 3)

Do you follow trends religiously or do you adapt trends to suit your own personal style?


I definitely do not follow trends religiously. Sometimes I accidentally wear something so stylish that it is painful by accident, but that is probably because I have had it in my wardrobe since it was last fashionable. I wear what I know suits me, if it is fashionable, great. If it isn't, I'm still wearing it.
I'm still waiting for the fashion trend to emerge which means I can wear the same clothes two days running without being judged. I have that look NAILED.

Question 4)

What do you think of the design of Intellicig?



Oooooh, sneaky, I didn't see that one coming. I am a smoker, I have seen more and more people using E-cigarettes and I have to admit I have tried the occasional one but never really for a long period of time. I do like the look of yours,



but I am not a fan of brightly coloured e-cigarettes which I think are unnecessary. The design does look good though. I could see myself holding it ok. 

Question 5) 

Which trend is your preference from monochrome, sportswear, tailored and white wash?


It has to be monochrome. You can't go wrong with black and white. especially when you can then play with your accessories. Sportswear is my own idea of hell, urgh. I am not built for sportswear, I look as if I am making a protest. 


Question 6) 

How will you be watching LFW and what celeb spotting will you be looking forward to?


Bad blogger that I am, I am late putting up this post so I can tell you exactly how I watched it. through the eyes of some of my favourite bloggers, Lois from www.bunnipunch.co.uk  Jaime from http://BoyMeetsFashion.com  and of course the lovely https://twitter.com/LAW1SFAB  on Twitter. 

As for Celeb spotting? That isn't what LFW is about for me, 

How about you?

Duvet Jacket, OOTD.

Blanket coats? Surely a great invention, right?

YES. However, do you know what would be better than a blanket coat? 

A duvet jacket, that's what.

So, Fashionista that I am, (No, you shut up) I bring you my OOTD which is sure to be a big thing by the time the next London Fashion Week comes round. (it's next month right? This things seem to be happening more and more frequently lately) and if it isn't on the catwalk, you can bet your arse people will be snapped wearing it for "street fashion"

Disclaimer, this Duvet Jacket is currently unavailable to purchase in all major outlets. 


Here I am modelling size single, other sizes are also available to not be able to buy.



The Duvet jacket also gives you the added luxury of people crossing the road to avoid you. 

 
This winter fashion must-have is on the Christmas list of all wannabe fashionistas as a non-seasonal transition piece of fast fashion. 


The Duvet Jacket is both warm and highly impractical at the same time, giving an edgy feel to it. 


I can see this being a staple part of my winter wardrobe, teamed with a pillow hat and undergarments made of a thermal material. 

The Duvet Jacket, not coming to a store near you. 

But I want one, don't you?

Let me know.

Why Do You Blog?


I have been blogging for over 5 years now and I don't know about you, but I genuinely cannot remember what I used to do before I wrote crap on the internet.

For me it is an outlet, and platform on which I can stand up high and shout from the rooftops, "whatttttt dooooooo you calllllllllll a collective noun for cooooccccccckkkkkkkk"

(Classy, thats me)

I love blogging, it has led to a huge amount of opportunities that I am extremely grateful for. I am lucky that my blog has gone from strength to strength and for some reason you guys come back each day and read my rantings and musings.

Sometimes you even leave me comments, which I LOVE. (hint, hint)

Blogging, for me, has always been a safe place, a place where I can share my thoughts, or say exactly how angry I am about something, I can write about how much I love a new dress or jacket or even share with you hot men on a Friday. Oh I do love to share hot men with you on a Friday.

Why do I blog?

Because I bloody love it.

Now tell me why YOU blog,

Or why you started blogging,

Or why you would like to blog,

Or why you stopped blogging.

I'm interested in what makes bloggers start and then continue on this road that we travel.


What is in it for you?


Let me know.

Collective noun for a group of penises



I know, I know. It is far too early in the day (Or late, considering what time you are reading this. In fact, WHAT TIME DO YOU CALL THIS? Where have you BEEN?) to talk cock but hey, when did you ever expect anything better of me.

It is a fact that my brain works in mysterious ways. Occasionally, weird thoughts enter my head and I can't get rid of them until I write them down. (I can only apologise)

#SorryNotSorry

So, this is my question to you.

What is the best collective noun for a group of penises that you can come up with?

(Ok, I'm a little sorry)

(But I'm not sorry for this picture to illustrate a group of penises)

The picture is for illustrative purposes only, I'm talking about real peni here, not dick heads. 




A clutch of penises?

A penetration of penises?


I'm handing it over to you.

And the best one will get a prize.


So let me know.

St Legers, Ladies Day with Ladbrokes Bingo



Last week I was lucky enough to be invited to Ladies Day at St Leger in Doncaster and as I have never been to the races before I was extremely excited about the opportunity to dress up a bit and go completely OTT with a hat.

(Side note, ladies. If you are going to the races, why not wear shoes that not only look good but are ones you can walk in too. The amount of women I walked past wearing shoes that made them walk like they were Bambi on crack were too many to count. AND that was just going IN to the race course)

So this was my outfit. My dress which is, of course, Hell Bunny was purchased from Tiger Milly, www.tigermilly.com and my hat was from the Marks and Spencers sale with all the red embellishments and flowers added by me.




Having never even been to the races before I was glad I got to experience it from the Mallard restaurant at Doncaster, which had its own viewing area in the stands, meaning we all got to enjoy the racing in comfort and style.

Having been invited by Ladbrokes Bingo, we OF COURSE played some games as we watched each race, including Horse Racing Bingo. I don't think I did very well at that game, I had a peek at some of the other ladies cards and I have a sneaking suspicion I know who has won.


It was fantastic to spend the day with some bloggers that I truly love, it is always great to see Georgina from www.shemightbeloved.com who is one of my favourite people in the world and who I now have more pictures on my phone of than I do my own children.

Here's some from us just totally messing around while trying to take VERY SERIOUS outfit posts.





and also the lovely Laura from www.whatlauralovesuk.com who had me laughing ALL day. especially when she won a race, and they did win a few!!!


Overall, I had an absolutely fantastic day. There was food, absolutely gorgeous food but instead of photographing it, I ate it. (crap blogger that I am)

There were horses.






There was fashion,




and there was so much enjoyment of the day that I just cannot wait to go and do it again. you can read more of what happened, here. http://bingo.ladbrokes.com/en/news/st-leger-raceday-bingo 

Have you ever been to the races before?


I'd love to hear about your experiences. Did you dress up and wear a hat?

Volumising Products for all hair types


What are the best volumising products for all hair types?

If you find your locks are looking a little lacklustre and flat by lunchtime, it could be that you need to consider using daily volumising hair products. If you’re wondering about the “crème de la crème” of products and which one is best for your hair type, the good news is that today’s marketplace offers a huge variety of different things to help, from brushes and thickening sprays to volume mousses, all of which have the potential to leave you with effortlessly big and bouncy hair.

You could try, for example, a product like Elvive Fibrology Thickening Shampoo, from L’Oreal. This is set apart from the rest thanks to Filloxane, an essential thickening ingredient which makes each hair wider as it sinks into the roots of your locks; you may well find you notice results in days.

If you’ve not tried it already, John Frieda’s Luxurious Volume range is worth a shot as their lightweight Blow-Out Spray is effective especially for fine or thinning hair. It can be added to wet hair before drying, and gives you a gloss that’ll fool everyone into thinking you’ve just left the salon. John Frieda also does a Blow-Dry Lotion Root Booster which is great for greasy-prone locks as it gives volume and shine without the moisture and oil. Another one that I like is Percy and Reed’s Abundantly Bouncy Volumising Mousse and No Oil, Oil for fine hair; as signature products they are both very popular.

Alternatively, Swell’s Volumizing Masque adds hydration as well as volume without harsh chemicals, meaning it can be used once a week in place of your usual conditioner. Ojon also offers Volume Advance shampoo and conditioner that gives your barnet bounce and volume – the shampoo lathers easily so you won’t need much of it. Clinical trials show volume is increased by up to 51%!

For a quick fix to a last minute hair nightmare, Bumble and Bumble Hair Powder is light, user-friendly and hassle-free – the ideal hair pick-me-up on the go. (Just make sure you brush it all out thoroughly so you don’t look as though you have dandruff.) It’s suitable for all hair colours – but shouldn’t be confused with a dry shampoo.

For overworked hair, Backcomb In A Bottle by Umberto Giannini is the ideal replacement to vigorous brushing and backcombing. Give your locks a great boost for that big, glamorous night out that deserves a hairstyle to match! Equally, if you’re on a budget, VO5 Plump It Up Dry Backcomb Spray is one lower-cost option.
Another one for a flat, lifeless hairdo is Living Proof’s Full Root Lifting Spray – although this is a little harder to use than some of the other products mentioned. Next time you visit your regular hair salon in sevenoaks or anywhere else, you can also ask your stylist for more advice.

Finally, another one for fine, flyaway hair – Kerastase Spray Volumactive helps you get the perfect blow-dried look or holds your up-do in place all day while hair looks shiny and soft.

With so many products available for all prices and hair types, there's no excuse for not living life at full volume!

This is a suggestion from someone who wants to stay anonymous, but wanted to share their love for the star of Divergent and other movies. 

Not sure if he is a little young for me, and slightly too chiselled but I think he is a good looking chap who is a welcome addition to the Nom or Vom stable.

What age is old?



I was having an interesting discussion earlier with a couple of bloggers and one of the bloggers called herself old. (She isn't) 

But it got me thinking, 

What age do you consider to be old?

I'm interested in this to see whether it also changes in relation to how old you are, so let me know how old you are, and what age you consider to be old.

iSheep/Apple Whore



I admit it, I am an iSheep, an Apple Whore, call me what you will, (just call me) I freely admit that I give my money to Apple gladly.

Anyone who follows me on Twitter, (or DID follow me) will have seen that I watched the live streaming yesterday, and used some pretty bad words when the streaming was more glitchy than, well, something extremely glitchy and not very good.

All I could think as I constantly refreshed the page was, I DON'T CARE, JUST SELL ME IT ALREADY.



I want a new iPhone, that is a given. I have been holding off on an upgrade now since May and I am just waiting to make sure that O2 don't require my first born child in return before signing up for another two years. (just kidding, O2, you can have the kid)

But what I didn't expect was that I would want the watch. Oh how I want that watch.

What does it do? I hear you ask.

I DON'T KNOW, is my reply. Don't come to me for tech specs, go see Mashable or MacRumours for that kind of detail, all I know is that I heart it muchly and I must have it.

From a fashion point of view, (tries and fails to live up to my Big Fashionista name) I love how many different styles of straps there are. Definitely going to be seeing a LOT more straps coming on the market I think.




WILL the Apple Watch straps be the NEXT PHONE CASE as a must have accessory?

(Fashion stuff, CHECK)

As I said, I freely admit to being an Apple Whore, yes, there are other brands available, but I have bought into the religion of Apple, this post could be being written on a iPhone, my Mac Air or even my iPad mini, personally Apple works for me and gives me what I need before I even knew I needed it.

Holy SHIT,

APPLE IS MY DEALER!!!!!!!!!!!!!


So what about you?

Did you watch the live streaming, (well, as much of it as was possible) Are you also an Apple whore or do you buy your product elsewhere?

What do you think about the straps? Could they be next years big accessory? (insert question that inspires other fashionistas to leave a comment, CHECK)


Or did you feel underwhelmed by the whole thing? What did you want to see?

Hard, weak and very very short. Tracing Paper Toilet Roll


Today, we are talking bog roll, (Nope, I still can't understand why a brand doesn't just snap me up as an ambassador, either) 

Now when I say bog roll, I do not mean the nice, almost fluffy stuff that you use now. I'm talking about, 

Duh 

Duh 

Duh

School bog roll.  




Now I went to school in the 80's, (No, YOU shut up) and I spent the whole time that I went to school training my bowels to go either before school or after school. NEVER, EVER in school and the reason was the greaseproof paper on a roll that they tried to pass off as toilet roll. 

Urgh, Oh the memories of that hideous stuff. Tell me that my school was not the only one to use it? We also used to use it as tracing paper, and it made a great envelope or paper to write on. 

What it DID NOT MAKE, was good toilet roll. AT ALL. 

One girl I went to school with, if caught short used to take off her knickers and wipe her bum with them rather than use the dreaded tracing paper toilet roll. 

Oh and then to add insult to injury, my primary school used to use the toilet roll holders that meant you could only rip off one square at a time. That just felt as if they were MOCKING us. 

PLUS, I bet the TEACHERS never had to use that stuff, although that may explain why some of the teachers were so grouchy all the time, (couldn't have been me, I was an angel) 


They've stopped using this stuff now, haven't they? They must have done. Does anyone know when this stuff stopped being used in schools? Who were the pioneers? Who were the first generation to be able to poop in school without fear of smearing it everywhere but on the actual sheet of paper. 

AND WHO THOUGHT THIS CRAP WAS A GOOD IDEA IN THE FIRST PLACE?

(I have so many questions) 


Ok, when did YOU go to school, and did you have to use Tracing Paper toilet roll?

Let me know. 

I need to know.

Kelly Brook and "Girl Power"


This afternoon I have been saddened by social media, apparently Kelly Brook has been doing the media rounds today and has been open about punching two of her boyfriends in the past. 

And what is the response to this? 

"Credit to Kelly Brook, #GirlPower"

"Kelly Brooks #Lad"


and Kelly Brook herself has justified herself by saying that it's ok because the men are bigger than her so she wouldn't do them much damage.

No.

No.

No.

This is not on. EVER. No one should ever hit their partner, this is domestic abuse. It is wrong. 

I am not even going to turn the tables and say what if her ex boyfriend spoke about hitting her because we know the outcry there would be there, but Kelly Brook feels that is ok? That it is a joke? 

It's 2014, time to face facts that victims of domestic abuse are men as well as women. Women hitting men isn't funny, men hitting women isn't funny. Someone hitting another person, just ISN'T funny. 

It's not about gender, it's about abuse. 

What do you think?

Eight-legged freak-ing out



Ring, ring

Ring, ring.

(Oh use your imagination)

"Hello, is that the place where I can buy trees? Because I would like to place an order for 30 million Horse Chestnut trees so that I can plant a ring of them around my house to keep out the spiders that are currently trying to make themselves at home in my property.

Sold out you say?

Bummer."

Please, tell me I am not alone in the fact that I am currently being invaded by spiders so large that if I were so inclined, I could stick a saddle on one and ride through the Trinity Kitchen on it. Spiders so brazen that I fully expect to come home one evening to find that one of them is lounging on my sofa, watching Great British Bake Off whilst eating my cheese and biscuits, IN MY ONESIE. (would that make it an eightsy?

I have heard of the Horse Chestnut trick before, but how the hell I am expected to hit one of those buggers with a Horse Chestnut is beyond me. Have you SEEN how fast they run?

Also, the ones I have seen, don't seem to like walls, Oh no. No "spider-like' behaviour for these bad boys. They wait until you are relaxed and comfortable, and then they dart across the carpet as if they are playing a game of Bulldog. (double points if they go OVER the dog, apparently) and then they just freeze in the middle of the carpet while you are standing on your sofa screaming your head off, just LOOKING at you as if to say, "When you've finished...."  I think I could handle it if they ran off, but NO, they stand there and just taunt, "Come and get me, if you think you can. What, are you SCARED?"

Er, YES. Of COURSE I am goddamn scared. These spiders look like they have been raised in East London. The only way they could look any harder was if they wore leather jackets, carried flick knives and called Harry Styles a wanker, ON TWITTER. (I know, that's hard)

Slowly, these spiders are trying to take over my home.

Have you seen this picture?





I'm not scared about their willies on my face, I'm terrified the bastards are going to try to finger me!!!!!


Tell me I am not alone in being invaded by obscenely large spiders, tell me your tips for getting rid of them.


I need to know.

Boots with the fur, by New Look



Autumn has to be my favourite season in the year. Autumn colours, dresses with sleeves and BOOTS!!!!

FUR BOOTS if you please, every winter my feet are extremely cold so boots with fur are ALWAYS on my shopping list each Autumn.

New Look, who are my fast fashion favourites, are always quick off the mark with their autumn styles and I was given the opportunity by their PR team to pick a pair from their new styles to give you a peek at my Autumn style, 









These boots are fur lined all the way through, keeping my feet warm and cozy the way they are meant to be in autumn, and have buckles on the straps meaning you can tighten or widen them, depending on what you are wearing them with,








So, I for one will not be mourning the passing of summer, I am ALL about Autumn and my boots with the fur.

If you want to check out what new shoes and boots New Look have to offer, then you can check them out
