Grab a Cuppa & We'll Have a Catch Up! ♥

Evening Ladies :) 

Due to the fact I haven't blogged in a while I thought I'd write a quick 'catch up' post to update you all with what has been going on recently...


I am now in my final [ever] semester of University and with triple modules and a portfolio to pull together by June, I know I've got my work cut out for me. It's a lot of work to be completed so I'm keeping my fingers crossed that my blogging doesn't suffer; I aim to keep my blog as a place for me to be able to relax and spend time doing something I enjoy, rather than 'have' to do [for example Uni work]... A lot of you girlies helped my out with some of my research for my Dissertation proposal by filling out my survey, so if you were one of them I want to say a massive massive thank you! My final print for my Beauty Magazine work was handed in just 2 weeks ago and here is a sneak peek of one of the makeup looks I created, along with a friend on my sister...

If you follow me on Twitter or are a friend on Facebook, you will know the trials and tribulations we have faced with one of my Horses. Billy had been on and off lame for around a year and we just weren't getting any satisfactory answers from the vast array of specialists he had been taken to see. We eventually took him to Yarm last Monday for a thorough investigation and off the back of this he ended up having an operation last Friday to cut ligaments in both of his front feet. As awful as this sounds, he is now back at home and has returned to the cheeky chappy we all love him for! It's amazing what the surgery has achieved so far and we are hoping that the improvements will only continue. His stitches and bandages are removed next Thursday by which time he will have healed up nicely and will be allowed to be turned out with his pals in the field :) .. Just can't wait to see him back out on the grass and pain free!

I have had a massive clear out of my wardrobe & shoes, including both high street and designer items. I'm thinking of uploading everything to eBay, but wondered if any of you girls would like a sneak peek or first dibs on anything before I do... Just let me know! 

Oh and just before I sign off so to speak, here are a couple of snaps of me and my gorgeous cousin Natalie which were just taken at the weekend at a family birthday party. Nat lives in London so don't get to see her all that often, but it's extra nice when I do!.. What do you think.. Any resemblance?
