Picture Attempt

I'm testing out different ways to upload pics to my blog today to see if I can get a nice big one up there. Wish me luck!

Had to pick a random photo to test with, so here's one of Sophie when she tried yoghurt for the first time:

Big thanks to Katrina at media mad for helping me out :)

I was hanging little Sophie's washing yesterday and I couldn't help noticing how different her wardrobe is to mine.

Ok, I know it's considerably smaller ;) but what I really mean is all the colour.

Sophie's is all bright clours - blue, pink, yellow, purple, patterns & pictures.
Mine is mostly black.

I can't remember how old I was when my taste in clothes became more about what goes with everything & what is most slimming, but I hope for Sophie it takes a lot longer!

I better start role modelling and dress myself in more colours that suit my mood rather than worrying about the rest :)

Make Over!

So the blog has just had a make over by Katrina at media mad, and as you can see, it's gorgeous!

Katrina is fabulous to work with, here are some reasons why I love her:

  • Her designs are beautiful, it's like she can read my mind
  • She's really efficient, we communicated via email (on the week of Christmas!) and I never had to wait long for a reply
  • Her personality is just beautiful, so happy and bubbly, I felt like she was a friend straight away and we had never met before
  • You can tell she loves her work
  • She gave me great sugesstions on how to make the most of my blog when I didn't even know to ask about them
  • And the big one...she just made everything REALLY easy

We also gave my Twitter profile a matching design, so pretty!

Check out her site media mad and her blog if you are thinking about giving your website a freshen up or new look. You'll love it :)

My handbag, Borne Naked style

I won this Borne Naked handbag organiser and I am in love with it.

Look at the before and after pics, my bag is so much neater, and I put the most important things in the organizer, so when I need to change bags quickly I just take that part out and put it in the new bag.

It takes 3 seconds. I love it :)

Check out their website at if you're interested, or Sussan sells them too.

P.S. This post is not sponsored, I just really like them and think you would too :)

Testing, testing...

Just a quick note today, have discovered BlogPress on my iPhone and this is my test run. Although I probably don't need to explain that seeing it will put an auto msg saying exactly the same thing at the end of this post ;)
