Photo Diary: Where Have I Been?

I haven’t posted a photo diary for a little while…therefore, for today, I thought “why not?” This shows what I have been up to recently, with a little look at behind the scenes of this blog at points.

I went to see Emeli Sande! This was onlr as tickets to write about it for this blog and in my column…

Can I now not claim to not be a legitimate Journalist!? I’ve been all the way to Fleet Street!*

*But then again, this was in Brighton..

This proof copy also came in the post for me to to review, courtesy of Canongate. Needless to say, I am very excited to be reading this book!

This was part of a larger sample that was posted to me recently to review…(coming soon!) I could smell it through the packaging, which smelt divine! You’ll be able to read all about it soon..

Adding colour to my life!

What have you been doing?




I am pleased to announce that I am working with Basic Beauty Tools. If you go to their website via this link , and with the purchase of a Spongedry, you can get a free foundation blender by adding under ‘Note To Seller’ your colour code: LYDIAPINK for pink, LYDIAPURPLE for purple, and LYDIABLACK FOR black.

A Filofax update; I bought it anew!


So, yeah..I bought a new Filofax. This red Metrapool replaced my four-years-on-the-go-planner, which was beginning to give up on me. Still the same size Personal, this is the insides:


Okay, maybe not.

There’s two pen loops, unlike the one before: it’s very useful, as my biros do run out very quickly.

On opening..


In the left pockets is my Benefit voucher, benefit brow wax card from Elle, stamps, markers,  various post it’s, stickers, a letter, and buisness flyer.

In the envelope is a postcard of the young Bowie, which latterly turns over to this Carly Simon reference:


“Don’t you, don’t you????”

But here’s a view of my tabs, which I purchased from Amazon. Notes is for on the go, projects is this blog, information for any events,and the rest are self explanatory.


A blank page of the diary, with a blog post slot:
