I saw a lot of people posting pictures on facebook of their bare faces to raise awareness of cancer, I did not understand how this was helping and deciding this was a craze I would not be taking part in. However it then changed to naked faces and donating messages. After a couple of tags and reading a news article about how #nomakeupselfies have made 8 million pounds for Cancer Research in just 6 days. It would be rude not to take part, and why not blog about it as well as facebook it? :-)

This is after I dragged myself up for a night shift (hence the sad face). I tag all of you that read this. Upload a picture of your beautiful face to your blog and text beat to 70007. Don't be shy.

  • Instagram is becoming more and more addictive #startingtouseridiculoushashtags.
  • I love pink way too much, everything I own is pink and people sometimes stare when they enter my room.

  • My lucky number is 14- therefore I am hoping for good things this year.
  • I do not think I want to be a nurse forever.

A week away from life.

I have finally had a little well deserved week away from work. I initially thought what a lovely blogging opportunity this may be. Realistically... I have had a week crammed full of fun and games and no time for any computer time at all. So I thought you might like to see what I have been up too, however whilst reviewing pictures of the last 9 days- there seems to be one theme.... food. So if you are hungry, I would stop reading right these second.

I spent a few days with my boyfriend and his family, which I never get to do. We went to the cinema for the first time in 2 years!!! We saw The Book Thief, I was hooked the whole way through and thought it was an amazing film. I even had a little cry (which is very unlike me). I still do not know if this is a sad or a happy film, it messed with my emotions the entire way through. I will not spoil the storyline for you, but definitely watch this film. 


Homemade chicken, sweet chilli and gherkin pizza. 

Yo! Sushi- Definitely needs a visit on Monday. This is one of our favourite places to go, as Mikey can eat 30,000 dishes and I can drink endless Miso.

I then went back home to Somerset which means I get to fill my days with my cats, my parents and the countryside, which makes me super excited. 

Mister Tibbles <3

Sir Maslow <3

I was suppose to return to London with my parents and family friends for a few days of activities however Massy got poorly and this had to be cancelled. The poor little guy had a partially blocked bladder, and looked so sad and sorry for himself it broke my heart. Luckily after many injections, tablets and a urine sample taken via needle through his bladder :-(. He managed to avoid needing a catheter and returned home for lots of cuddles on my makeshift bed in the dining room. 

However this did not halt all the plans, our family friends came to stay with us. We still had a lot of fun (and an awful lot of food) around looking after Massy and trips to see the new good looking vet. 

I used foil's for the first time, I decided to attempt my toes as I thought I could keep them on for longer and I had seen it on a blog (sorry I cannot remember which) and it looked so cute. But oh gosh... it is rather difficult on tiny toenails, especially because my mum's hair-dryer cuts out frequently. 

 I finally returned to London and spent a night with my two BFF's. We ate a load more food,  drank too much wine and laughed and laughed in the natural history museum.  

I am now two stone heavier, but so very happy, and gutted it is time for the real world and work again :-( Thanks to everyone for making my week special.

Wham bam thank you jam.

I feel I should apologise for the quality of these pictures, however a) I am not going to pretend my pictures are normally fantastic and b) if you could feel the excitement in my mouth (and belly) you would want to rush your pictures too :-)

Introducing... The Jam Tree starring my beautiful housemates Louise & Sarah in the city. This bar/restaurant is in Clapham, and definitely worth a visit (even if you only visit for the jam based cocktails).

Jammy Dodger
Butterscotch Schnapps, Frangelico and Chambord shaken with double cream and raspberry jam
(This is probably the best cocktail I have ever had ever ever ever)

Wham bam thank you jam 
Vanilla vodka, Chambord and Passoa with raspberry jam and sour mix topped with popping candy

Pulled Pork Burger & Sweet Potato Fries
with Pico De Gallo, Tomatillo Salsa, and Slaw

Vegetarian Rendang
With Basmati Rice

Grilled Haddock Fillet 
With Bubble and Squeak, Crispy Poached Egg and Sorrel Cream 

Salted Caramel Brownie 
With Dulce De Leche Ice cream

It is somewhere to visit when you need that "nice" dinner location. The bill was approximately £45 each, this was for 2 courses and 2 cocktails each. The food was delicious, and we scoffed the lot. But my highlight of the entire evening besides finding a kitten to snuggle on the way home, was the jammy dodger cocktails, they are indescribable. I am looking forward to summertime to sit in the garden and enjoying the tasty little buggars. However at £9 each I feel slightly guilty at the amount I could spend- I think maybe it might be time to have a cheeky reinventing session at home.
