“Have bottom size of Brazil” – Helen Fielding, Bridget Jones’s Diary
My Life Goal, ze Weight
Well I’m back to retaining water again which is pants but on a happier note I have now finished my medication; so am feeling slightly less foggy in the head (which considering I’ve still got a sinus and chest infection is saying something!).
G was away with work all week so I was home alone…that meant one thing….Eton Mess for dinner all week….maybe that’s the real reason for my weight gain and not the water, hmmm.
Shake Your Booty
Who honestly did exercise in this heat this week?!? If you did you’re crazy! I didn’t do any exercise this week as I was still sick and a wheezing mess, along with half of the population of England. Heat is one of my asthma triggers along with colds and I’ve got both so I put my feet up and surfed the internet….I did do exercise…I surfed…you burn approximately 200 calories from surfing, I just checked!
Well my big thing from this week was that I managed to download all my photos from my phone; it took a long time…..a really long time….like two days!
I’ve finally got everything booked for our trip to Hong Kong and Malaysia so will share my itinerary on Monday; we are really really really looking forward to our trip….like REALLY!
And I’ve bought a new camera, after years and year of using Nikon I’ve gone and bought myself an Olympus Compact camera with wifi. I was going to go for the Olympus PEN camera which looked great but G said, are you really going to want to change over the lens on holiday….yeah nah.
I’m Faking It
Today I did something that I’ve never done before; I popped my spray tan cherry! G and I can’t stop giggling at my colouring at the moment especially over how white my bottom now is. Apparently once I have a shower there will be a lovely lighter shade underneath the colour that currently resembles the Reese’s Pieces packaging…I always knew I was bound to turn into Reese’s Pieces as I eaten way too many of those little bits of peanut butter heaven. I’m a firm believer of being happy in your own skin and I am; Pale is Interesting but sometimes you need to do something crazy!
While most boring people take antibiotics when they’re sick, I buy shoes as they work faster than any antibiotics on the market at making me feel better. Boden is having a giant sale at the moment and I love dotty shoes and I was sick…
…and as I still had a silly little cough a few days later and wasn’t totally 100% better I bought these from Topshop for £5!

I love Frankie and her horoscopes….they’re spot on! I do need more practice with eyeliner but I thought my eyeshadow skills were okay…maybe not.
Stacey and I share the same horoscope hence we both like visiting stately homes and castles. Check our Stacey’s latest post from Eltham Palace, it’s so pretty that I want to visit tomorrow but I will be packing!
