'Life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans'
New camera, same little poser face. Ended up going with the Canon 1100D (I was talking rubbish in the last post, Katrina has a Nikon, it was Greig who has the 1100D) I also bought a lovely Canon 50mm lens. Lipstick is Girl About Town by Mac, and my bejewelled shirt is a wee belter from Glamorous. Paired with black leggings and vans, keeping it simple and I am a Magpie for those sparkles.
Afternoon tea at the Blythswood Hotel with Kyle and Leah. Absolutely delicious. Oh my foxy friend came along for the day too!
A sleepy Dexter asking what is Inimals!? Well that's where my new foxy friend is from! He's actually a cover for my ipad. Lovingly made by Clare, who is 23, lives in Glasgow and studies Architecture at Glasgow School of Art. Clare has just started making up these custom phone/tablet covers on the side, after experimenting with some scrap material and her sisters sewing machine. Very proud of my crafty locals :)
Examples of some of Clares previous makes. Aren't they adorable? You can tell her background as an Architecture student gives her an eye for fine detail and perfection! Not a stitch was out of place, and this cover is sturdy and secure despite being soft and constantly moving about my handbags on the go for work all week. Clare has done everything from Flamingo's to Meerkats! Prices range from £10-£20 depending on size and design

What Inimal would you choose? Let me know if you order one in time for Christmas! The sheep one made me giggle because it looks just like Dexter (who is extra fluffy at the moment, see...)
What a boy. He really is such a great little companion. Hiding under the covers having a snooze as a type this. Hard life being a cat eh?
Winter is properly upon us now, and I am ready for the party season! When I say party season... I'm still waiting for the invites but I'm sure they're in the post... Don't worry about me, I'll be sitting here patiently with my sparkly new Chi Chi dress, waiting on some lovely christmas party plans to unfold. Isn't it pretty? I have a lovely clutch bag and heels to match, and I can't wait for an excuse to get all dressed up. Would you do accessories with this, or is the sequined top section a statement enough? We have the Scottish Bloggers Party in a couple of weeks, but that's a cheesy christmas jumper sort of do (already organised, am I the keenest party bean that you know?) I am never normally as keen about getting my Christmas Tree up, and tend to wait until it is 'socially acceptable' (out of fear of making font page in the local paper - you know there is always one family with the full nativity set up in their garden in october) Every year I usually have an Artificial Christmas Tree, as I've never really known any different, but the more and more I see real ones it makes me want to get one. Maybe not this year as I am in a shared flat, but if me and John have our own place by next christmas then I would love for us to do it all properly :) What is normally your preference?
I'd been having a gander online at Baking Mad, for their Christmas Cake recipe and Christmas Pudding recipe (to be honest, I got distracted browsing ideas for Christmas Gift Hampers before actually focusing on what I was originally looking for!) I think I will give either one a go closer to christmas day, as I am having christmas dinner with John and his family so would like to bring something along for us to have a cuppa with after dinner :) I ended up making their Oreo Brownies as a wee something to take to the lovely Ashley Baxter today who is taking my photos at the Christmas Market in Glasgow! Of course myself and my friends had to test 4, 5 or even 6 pieces first JUST to make sure it was up to scratch. We all approve ;) Hopefully she likes them too!
Some final pictures taken yesterday with Greig and John at Once Upon A Tart. We had some brunch and I set off to buy some props for the new childrens tv show I am working on. The boys spent ages in Guitar Guitar, being geeks while I shopped next door, and then John came along with me for the rest of the day as my assistant (alas, mighty carrier of bags) and I ended up loosing him in Hamleys! We was playing along to christmas tunes on the giant piano... as you do. I really love this time of year :)
