Flowers




Is it weird to buy flowers for myself? Even if it is I think I might do it. The other day my mum put a rose from the garden in a single rose vase on my dressing table for when I got home, how cute? Now that it's dying I want to replace it with something bigger and better. It seems like an it-girl thing to always have fresh flowers around the house doesn't it?

TUMBLR


I've succumbed and gone and got myself a tumblr, I think I love it loads. Think of it like an inspiration board for [BR]rit girl.

Hot and Sweaty

My summer goal of being an all round better person has been getting off to a slow start. My eating rules have been testing me and I have yet to do any type of exercise except for walking, which at the minute I am counting as exercise because I need to keep some kind of self esteem. But the time has come where I have to decide what I'm going to do. This is a bit tricky at the moment because I'm between 2 homes which means I'm really going to have to commit to a gym. Something I tried back in September was Bikram Yoga, the one where they put you in a boiling hot room and make you stretch and breathe for an hour and 45 minutes. It was tough, I'm not going to lie. But I think it was worth it. Obviously this is top of my list of exercise classes I would want to do (this list is essentially 2 things long because I really hate exercise classes) but there is a catch, it's super expensive and I'm worried I'll wimp out and not go enough to make it worth it. What do you think? Should I make this commitment?

Also, I need to start doing exercise because I have a sassy pair of pink and black nikes sitting in my room and not getting used!

P.S I do NOT look like this when I'm doing yoga.... but if I actually go and do yoga then theres the potential that I could. This should be incentive enough.

Facing Facts

One of the many reality t.v shows I have indulged in over the years is 'The City', spin-off of the classic 'The Hills'. Obviously I was into Whitney, who wasn't? She was cute and had glowing skin and her fall on national t.v was only endearing. There was one character however who I hated, who bothered me more than most other reality show bad girls. The girl in mention is of course Miss Palermo. I didn't even love to hate her, I just hated her. A while back when a friend said she thought Olivia Palermo was almost perfect I was flabbergasted, of course I kept to my morals and argued my case of why she was definitely not perfect. But I've recently realised that perhaps ... she is. I mean maybe it's just because 'The City' has been cancelled for a while and I've not had to watch her to her sneaky tricks to make Whitney's life more difficult in the ELLE offices, or maybe it's just because she's pretty freaking great. I decided to investigate my feelings further. I knew I loved her style, I mean just take a look...





But then I decided that to be able to make an educated decision I needed to hear her speak again. I needed footage. So I found some.... and I didn't hate her. I mean it didn't hurt that her dashing bf featured heavily.. but maybe I'm warming to Olivia Palermo. I never thought I'd see this day.
