making memories
2014_29_01

I have a great group of friends that have been with me through thick and thin. We’ve all known each other for years and, like the Spice Girls, we are all very different and all have our own unique personalities. (Oh yeah, I just compared us to the Spice Girls. Keeping the 90s vibe alive, […]

diy: glitter backdrop
2013-12-19 09.07.59

What were you doing in the build-up to Christmas? Visiting family? Frantically dashing round the shops to find last minute presents? Wrapping multitudes of presents? Well, for me the answer is all of the above. Oh yeah, and I made a glittery backdrop. Just before Christmas we decided to throw a Christmas party. I wanted […]

happy new year
jan_06_2014

    I stopped making New Years resolutions years ago. I’m a bit of a ‘Whim Jim’ by nature and would often take up a new hobby or set myself a new goal only to abandon it a few weeks later. However, this all changed last year when myself and four of my friends set […]
