Ok, so here I am. I guess the posting more regularly thing can probably be deemed as unsuccessful..!
I've been around - I'm reading everyone else's blogs, I'm commenting, but I just am finding the idea of posting really difficult. I don't even know why. But it's taken me ages to work up to doing this.

I do want to thank everyone who's been commenting me, & hasn't abandoned me since I've been a rubbish blogger - I've only lost a couple of followers, & I can't blame 'em really!
But a massive thank you to those that are sticking by me :)

It's half term now, so I will try & post more - no promises..! But I will try.

Ok, so my last post was a bit silly, but I quite enjoyed it - after I'd posted it I realised there was someone I'd forgotten, so I've decided to give him his own little space here in this post:

The lovely Doug Savant, aka Tom Scavo in Desperate Housewives.

So, I don't really have too much to say on that - have had a soft spot on this man since Desperate Housewives started, & couldn't believe I'd forgotten him - so here he is!

Ok so I'm going to give you some ideas of some of the things I've been wearing whilst I've not been posting.. As usual for me, there's generally not full outfit pics, just components/snippets!

This is an outfit I'd worn to work with grey trousers (no pic), then just changed into jeans to meet my sister after work.

I'm not sure that the colours are all that clear here - looking back at it. The cardigan & shoes are both a gorgeous 'blush pink/nude' shade, that goes perfectly with the rose quartz necklace. It all looks a bit washed out here, I'm not sure why - sorry!
I love the lace top - the buttons add a little detail to it - don't know how well you can see that..

Having a look now at my pics, I think these are all pretty much work outfits! So maybe not all that exciting, but oh well, it's something I guess!

A 'blue' day.. Got that checked shirt in the sale in Primark a few weeks ago. It was only £5, & I love it. It's so versatile. I wore it this day, open over a long tshirt & black shorts with blue tights. But it's also long enough to be worn as a dress - which I've done, over leggings. It was a well worth it purchase!

That blue ring? You may well have spotted it already, in pink - or if not, you soon will!

I don't know if anyone's been reading since the beginning, but in one of my first posts I mentioned really wanting a 'watch-ring' - well, look at that, I've got one!
Spotted it in the Topshop sale & literally HAD to have it! Weirdly, the couple of times I've worn it, it's got lots more attention from the boys at school than the girls! The boys are very impressed with it! & I've gotta say, I love it :)

I don't know why the cardigan looks blue there, but it's not - it's the exact same purple as the ring/beads in the necklace..
I adore these sandals. I got them in the sale last year from asos. However, I'm really disappointed, as the zips (which you can't see - they go up the back of the heel), have both broken - so they do up ok, but then they just gape open & apparently they can't be fixed :( So I have to wear full length trousers with them at the moment, to hide the backs! But I rolled them up to photograph them..

Ok, one more days outfit - I've got a few more, but if I save some then I'm more likely to post again! & don't want to overload you in this one post..

I think all the jewellery featured in this, I posted about when I bought it - nice to see it in context?! They've all become very popular pieces actually - they're all easy to wear pieces that work with lots of things..

Right, I think this has gone on long enough now. I hope you've enjoyed seeing these. Sorry if I've just bored the pants off you!

Like I said, it's half term now, so I have a week off work - so hopefully will be able to use some of that time to blog a bit more. I have a few things I need to post about.. some more outfits to show you, things I've bought.. & I've also been lucky enough to receive a couple of giveaways that I need to share with you :)

Thanks again for all your support - I promise it really is appreciated..

Take care,


PS. I'd just like to apologise for the messiness of the photos! I don't know what's going on - I'm obviously out of practise, but Blogspot won't seem to let me move them around & make them look more organised. It's also turned them around again so some of them are topsy-turvy.. I've had a go at sorting them out, but to be honest, I can't be bothered to fight with it - so, sorry! They'll just have to stay all back to front & topsy-turvy & messy. Grr.

Light Relief

Ok, so as I said, I've not been around so much - I have been trying to comment more again on your blogs though. Things are still pretty... difficult. But I'm getting there. Slowly but surely.
Have been thinking about posting again, but decided to ease myself in gently, with a bit of light relief!

I've seen this around on a few blogs, so decided to give it a go :)

The idea is that you choose 5 people from the world of film or tv, that you'd be happy to have some 'one on one time' with.. if you get my drift.
Anyway, I've blatantly cheated, as I couldn't narrow it down to 5!

So, hope you enjoy these fine specimens of men - what a delight for your eyes..!

First, we have the absolutely gorgeous Jensen Ackles, of Supernatural fame.

I love the programme, & I'd like to think I would like it even if he weren't in it - but he definitely helps. He makes me go rather weak at the knees as Dean Winchester.
So, just for fun, here's another pic!

My next gorgeous man links to the first, as he plays his Dad in Supernatural!
Roll up, Jeffrey Dean Morgan:


As well as Supernatural, I was also a huge fan of his in Grey's Anatomy - & honestly, he was the only reason I managed to get through the film of PS I Love You.

Ok, next we have this fine specimen of a man - Shemar Moore.

He plays FBI Special Agent Derek Morgan in Criminal Minds - which happens to be one of my favourite programmes.

He's just gorgeous. End of. So here's another picture :)

My next choice is Simon Baker.

I'm pretty sure if you watch The Mentalist, you can't help but love him. He's got such a cheeky grin - check out those dimples.

Then we have the gorgeous Goran Visnjic, who played Luka Kovac in one of my all time favourite programmes, ER.

I've been watching the entire boxset from the beginning since the new year (am up to Season 12), so maybe that's why he came to mind! He's one of my favourite characters, & I love the way he develops over the course of the programme.

Ok, next we have a man who my friends all laugh at me for fancying. I don't care how old he is, he's gorgeous :)

Anthony LaPaglia:

He plays Jack Malone on Without A Trace, so happens to be my favourite character of one of my favourite shows. And, very much like some of the other men I've chosen (well, their characters anyway) - he's a troubled soul - the brooding, tortured type obviously appeals to me - don't quite know what says about me!

(I think I've got a thing for men in suits..!)

Last but not least, we have the cheeky chappy Andrew Lincoln:

This man has been a favourite of mine for quite some time now. Loved him in Teachers. Loved him in AfterLife. Loved him in Love Actually. I'm sure you get the picture.
He seems to have done quite a bit of voiceover work too, so it always makes me smile to hear his voice unexpectedly on an advert too!

Hope you've enjoyed my choices! I tag anyone that fancies giving this a go :) It's very shallow, but like I said, I was in need of some light relief, & this just did the trick actually!

I've got lots of things to share with you/show you, so I'll try & start posting a bit more regularly again.. no promises, but I will try.

Thanks everyone for your patience - & I really appreciate all the kind comments & everything, so thanks :)

Take care,

Ok, so I owe you guys a BIG apology...

I'm not self-centred enough to assume anyone has even noticed my absence, let alone cared, but I still feel the need to explain slightly.

I've not been around much recently. I haven't posted for AGES (for me, anyway) - & for that, I'm sorry. I've been a crap blogger.
Basically, I've had a hell of a lot of stuff going on, in real life, so to speak. Stuff that on the whole, I've been finding bloody difficult to deal with.
Some of it pertains to an active court case, so I can't say too much on the matter.
I don't even know that I want to explain too much.
I just needed to say that, that I've been just trying to deal with what life was throwing at me - so couldn't handle this too.

I know that seems silly. I just couldn't face posting. I don't even know why. Then the more I left it, the harder it seemed.

But I'm coming through the other side now. Sort of anyway.
I'm writing this post to let you know that I may not be around for a while. I'm not sure. I'm still trying to read & will hopefully be getting back to commenting too. I like staying up to date with what you lot are up to & everything. It's just been too hard to join in. But I'm going to try a bit more.

So, if I don't post much for a bit - I apologise. But I'm going to try, every so often.

The person I owe the biggest apology to, is Ruth. I'm so sorry Ruth, that I haven't posted your giveaway goodies. I know it's no excuse, but with everything that's been going on, I've hardly been out at all - so I haven't made it to the Post Office. I really am sorry. I'm not sure when I'll get chance to do it, but hopefully it'll be soon. Please forgive me!

Sorry this has been such a miserable post. Here's a tiny glimpse of my old blogging self..

Check out this cute bag I've bought (from eBay - so am waiting for it to arrive):

Hopefully when I'm feeling a bit better, I'll want to talk more about nail varnish & jewellery & all that good stuff - in fact, I think it'd do me good, so I am going to try - promise.

Anyway, hope you all forgive me - for not being around, not replying to comments etc. Please be patient with me...

Take care,
