If I were a pebble

If I were a pebble
all day I’d lie on the shore
and listen to ripples
froth and fall.
I’d close my eyes and wonder
how many like me
the ocean was rubbing together,
smoothing our speckled, hard skins.
But gazing up at the night
I’d laugh how the moon dropped anchor,
splashing stars into millions
and never a one sprinkled down.
“Hello, little pebbles,” I’d call.
“How’s the water up there?”
and dream the sky was our mirror
we swam in upside down.

'Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.'

The only man I need is Oscar

Shame he's so expensive...

 I LOVE this advert.

It's for the 'official treat provider' for the Olympics. Cadbury. Yes I know, it doesn't really make sense to have chocolate sponsoring a sports event but who am I to argue?!

It encourages you to join up to this website Spots vs Stripes and choose which team you want to be on. I chose stripes. Once you have signed up you can play games to get medals, prizes and money and your score gets added onto the teams score. Have a look if you've got time to spare and if you're a bit of a geek like me!

Go stripes :)


I've been rattling on about The xx for ages now and they've finally been recognised and have been awarded a Mercury Music Prize. I can listen to them and never get bored. If you don't know much about them then have a read of this interview in The Guardian and get on the ever increasing xx bandwagon. 

I love how shy and humbled they are after winning the prize. They all look so uncomfortable with all the attention and that just makes me love them more. All I listen to music for is the music. I'm not always bothered about the press hype and the stories surrounding artists. I love The xx because they make beautiful songs.

I'm a dreamer. I can't deny it, I always will be. One of my latest wishes has been for a gorgeous holiday in a nice hotel. My friend (who is equally as dreamtastic as me) found Mr and Mrs Smith, the Boutique & Luxury Hotel Specialists. I then managed to spend a good few hours on the site looking at all the beautiful places you can visit. 

I am choosing to ignore the fact it is mostly aimed at couples. 

We have decided we are going to throw caution (and sense and money) to the wind and go to one of these hotels for a girlie weekend. Tigerlily in Edinburgh is our current choice for a weekend of pampering, shopping and dancing. There is actually a nightclub at the hotel!

Here's the description:

Edinburgh boutique hotel Tigerlily has thrown the rule book out the window, working a bright, modern and luxe theme with mosaic mirror tiles, silver, white and glass. And that’s just the reception: rooms have massive beds, the restaurant is a sprawling maze of cosy bench nooks, crystal curtains and sleek tables – and there's even a nightclub, which attracts hip-hunting barflies like moths to the flame. The coffee's pretty darn good, too…

If that doesn't show why we want to go there, perhaps this will...

Better get out the piggy bank.


Nice Boots Camp.

When this advert popped up on the tv I had a few thoughts:

1. Coleen looks amazing.
2. Those are some nice shoes.
3. Is this for a tv series?

I was pretty gutted when I realised it was an advert for Littlewoods and not a new fashion programme as I had hoped.  However, the advert has really done its job. I've gone onto the Littlewoods website for a look around. I was greeted with this...

It makes me want to get involved in the hope that I might one day look like Coleen too! The website also has an exclusive members only section which you can only access if you 'enrol'. 

Whoever came up with this knows women very well... we hate to be left out! 

That one advert has made me think about Littlewoods as somewhere I might shop (not something I would have considered before) and also somewhere to get style advice. 

Think I might enrol with Mrs Rooney. I'll have what she's having. Apart from Wayne...
