I have been one of those rare people that have somehow avoided tweeting, instagramming (I haven’t even got instagram – I am so behind the times – but I’m sure I’ll jump on that bandwagon in 2015!) facebooking and blogging about the snow. But, like the snowmen you all excitedly built, I caved in! Jesus, that sounded a little bit evil didn’t it? #CruellaDeville
If you follow my blog you will not be surprised that I – somebody who hates Halloween, doesn’t really do birthdays and refrains from getting excited about Christmas in October like the rest of the population – was less than impressed with the snow. I’m not just being a massive kill joy, yes it looks pretty…for all of 10minutes. Then it turns to slush, then it turns to ice….and then people with the co-ordination of Bambi i.e me, go arse over tit and make complete prats of themselves. Which believe it or not, I do an absolutely fine job of that as it is!
Ranting over, the point I was actually trying to get to – which of course takes two paragraphs of waffling to get past first, this is me after all – is that due to the snow, I had to cancel quite a few plans. However, with the weather thankfully getting warmer, that
shitty pesky little snow is slowly starting to melt away and plans are firmly back on, resulting in the onesie coming off (don’t judge me, onesies are totally legal when it’s -10 outside) and slightly more acceptable outfits are back on. Which leads me nicely onto the ‘outfit of the day’ How’s that for a link? You’d almost think I worked in TV..
Jumper resembling a peacock: River Island
Cross ring that is purely ‘for show’ and not in anyway religious: Aldo
Completely unseasonal pastel yellow nails: Model’s Own Mellow Yellow
Goose bumps, lack of pictures and exceptionally grumpy face: Courtesy of my least favourite thing at the moment, UK weather!
On a side note – because I
am an absolute pig seem to be unable to see a gluten-free item of food and not try it….Starbucks now have a GF Tuna Niscoise roll (roll by Genius, which I have to say is by far the best ‘bready’ item that I’ve tried from a coffee shop/supermarket. Which basically translates into ‘it didn’t fall apart before I got a chance to put in my mouth’
On another side note (last one, I promise!) my mum met a friend for lunch yesterday at one of – if not, my all time – favourite restaurants, Cotto, which I posted about here. I mentioned in my post how amazing the manager, Lino, is there. In case you’re like me and
can’t be arsed are too lazy to go and have a read, in short, Lino has Coeliac disease himself and is one of the most knowledgeable and loveliest people I have ever met. Anyway, after a hectic/crazy day, I came home to this….
….my absolute favourite dessert from Cotto, the Tiramisu! I have it every time I go without fail, so Lino gave this to my Mum to pass on for me. What an absolute sweetheart! Great timing too as I got a new job yesterday, nothing like your favourite dessert to celebrate (as if I needed an excuse anyway) Last time I got a job I was really excited about I bought a Mulberry bag. This time I’ve got some tiramisu….I’ve changed! Ha!
