Super Dads!

In a months time we get to celebrate Father's Day, so I thought I could point some of you in the right direction of getting your daddy a unique gift they will love.
Now everyones Daddy is different and they will like different things but here are a few ideas I have found on a cool site alot of their items can be slightly pricey but I like them.

I LOVE these tshirts! They are priced at £19.75. I know a couple of super dads that would look great in these!

This is a lovely personalised gift. You get to write upto 8 lines of why you or your child loves your or their daddy. I think its especially great if there is a special something they do for their child, and it can be as random or as simple as you like. I think my daughter would love to do one of these for her daddy at a small cost of £12!

A pair of hand sewn cross-stitch cufflinks featuring little black gentleman's moustache, £18.

Now you maybe asking what I am going to get my Daddy.. well if he hadnt of already received it then it would have been a secret. My gift was a rather unique one hence why he had to have it early, i paid for him to get a permit so he can get up close and personal with passing trains on the railways as he is a keen train photographer (& a very good one). I even got him a cool hi-vis vest to wear ;).

Happy shopping!

Well suprise suprise my pink hair lasted all of 4 days...
So instead of going straight to boring brown I thought I would give red ago...
Its taken a lot of getting used to, needless to say a few negative comments from a select few put doubts in my mind about keeping it, but I have kept it.. at least for now anyway ;)

So I used a Schwarzkopf Live color

And it looks pretty much the same as this, however Ive only washed it once since and well its faded majorly already. I had expected this as its a common known fact that reds dont last.

So before I change it to a nice boring brown I have found a few other beautys that also sport the red hair look and in my opinion, pull it off very well :)


Kat Von D

Sharon Osbourne

Holly Hagan

Like I said in my opinion I think these girls all look rather fetching with a red barnett

Yes, I now have pink hair... :)
In a potty moment I decided to bung it on over my blonde hair.
The plan was tomorrow to dye my hair red, so I thought well ive always fancied pink hair and I had the dye so if it turns out really bad I can put the red on tomorrow..
However I quite like it... whether I keep it or not is undecided as yet.
Watch this space ;)

iPhone wallet!

I have found that when I go out of an evening I am one of those girls that doesnt take a great big bag with everything but the kitchen sink in it. Normaly I have my phone and a purse with money & cards etc. I have often tried to persuade the husband to put my phone in his pocket so I can just carry my purse instead of having to take a bag too, but more often then not he grunts and grumbles about it. But fear not I have found a solution...

Yes an iPhone wallet.. its so clever! I have ordered myself one from ebay for £2.99 in white and should be recieving it tomorrow in the post :)

I do fear it has its flaws though.. where will I put my change? Im not so sure at the minute but once I have recieved mine and tested it out I will have to update you!

Knitting is the way forward!

Knitting isnt just for pensioners you know! I for one cant knit, rubbish at it but I am lucky enough to have a mother (who has over 20 years till she becomes an pensioner) who is very very good at knitting. So much so I have stumbled across a couple of lovely patterns im hoping I can rope her into knitting for my 2 year old Ivy!

Both these patterns can be found on Etsy (I have posted the link below) at a small cost of £2.52. The seller then sends you a PDF file to your payal email account and you are all ready to knit one, pearl one! Happy knitting :)

I mustache you a question!

I mustache you a question... but I'm shaving it for later.

I stumbled across these fan-tache-tic little notepads on made by Vicentine Design.Want a cute way of jotting down a quick note? Need an entertaining, yet totally useful, gift for someone? Whatever your needs may be, this cute, little 3.25" x 3.25" tear away 50 sheet note block is just the solution. At only £5.68 with postage in they are a fab idea, only downside is they are from Canada so you may have to be patient in them arriving! The link is below for you to have a looksy!

Bordello Shoes!

Well what can I say about these beautys... erm droooooollll!!

These are a Teeze Muertos shoe with a satin bow made by Bordello Shoes.
I love the Skeletons on these, it reminds me of a childhood book by Jane & Allan Ahlberg called Funnybones. Any child born in the 80's should remember these fab books.

These are a Teeze glitter rose shoe also made by Bordello Shoes.
So classy yet I think you would feel very sexy in a pair of these.
These come in baby blue or burgandy.

These are a Teeze classic rhinestone shoe by Bordello Shoes.
You can get these in an array of colours but I have to warn tend to retail over the £100 mark.

I found all 3 pairs here:
There are some amazing shoes but they all have a hefty price tag unfortunately, but maybe for that special occasion or you fancy treating yourself you can justify a cheeky spend!
