A Life Update, My Depop Experience...& Some Shopping*

(*because let's be honest, that's why you're really here, isn't it? ;-) )

Okay...errmmm....righttttt...well. This is kind of embarrassing, actually. Because I have been - for want of a better word - absent from all things bloggy for a few weeks now. I do have a perfectly reasonable explanation for this: I have been immersed in the horror that is Moving House. What's so horrific about it? Well, apart from the mountains of paperwork to be filled in, endless cleaning of the house you're trying to sell, (and I've gone through seven Yankee Candles. SEVEN! The big ones!), the stress over whether you're doing the wrong thing and will never find a new house to move to, as well as, once you do find one, the sleepless nights worrying that the whole thing will fall right through...need I say more? And I've not even moved yet! (Breathes deeply for ten seconds). 

On The David Gandy Trail in That London

A couple of weeks ago I went to London for the weekend to see Matilda (more on that in a bit). We'd had it planned for a few weeks so when I learned, a couple of days before I went, that London Collections Men was taking place in the capital that very weekend, it seemed like fate.

See, LCM is basically like Fashion Week for fellas. Events take place across the capital and super famous, super hot British male models and celebrities flock to attend. Like David Gandy. *sighs*

My Life As A Take That Fan

If you've read some of my previous posts you probably know that for many years I've had a very special place in my heart for a certain boy/man-band. (I wrote about the time they visited my school, aka, When It All Began, here). So it might not surprise you to know that when I was (much) younger, there was a period of time where I was known not as Lisa, but simply as one of 'The Take That Fans'.

Cupcake Decorating Capers at The Copthorne Hotel, Newcastle

Last Sunday I was invited by the good people at Joe Blogs to an afternoon tea and cake decorating event at The Copthorne Hotel in Newcastle. The cake decorating was to be held by some lovely ladies from Julie's Cake House, a local company whose website makes me want to OD on fondant icing.
