TITP and weekend plans

Published February 23, 2012 by laurrx

this morning, the line up for T in the Park was announced. last years line up was probably the best line up the festival has ever had, unfortunately we were in Florida so i could not have went.

there’s alot of mixed opinions about the line up and i think – and i don’t now if this is coming from somebody who is going – people need to keep their really strong opinions to themselves. i’ve been feeling alot like this lately. not everyone is the same and everyone can’t just think the same. otherwise it’d be a boring world. i have the weirdest tastes…i think i have more common interests with the kids i work with rather than my 21 year old friends.

i love disney and colourful things, glitter and cheesy music, nice weather to play in and snow to play in (none of this rain and overcast rubbish, thanks).

anyway…back to TITP

I am so excited about maybe half of the bands and the whole experience. if it’s not my thing, then it’s not my thing and i won’t go back… i’m happy i will be going though. Me, Linda, our “sister” Christine and our “big bro” Robert are going – family holiday!

Me, Kim and Joanne booked a holiday on Friday – Zante 16th August!

So mega excited. So i’ve started putting together some money plans and clothes plans and Euro plans for both Zante and TITP.

This weekend is JOANNE’S 21ST BIRTHDAY! and i am super excited. Joanne, Kim, Melo and I are all going for a nice meal in the Read Leaf Restaurant then we have booked a pod in the main bar and more people are coming to party with us! then on Saturday Joannes parents MoJo are throwing a party in the house for her. it’s gonna be such an amazing weekend and i cannot wait to give her her gifts! Spoiled girl!!!

anyway, i have a boiled egg boiling for my lunch!

Festive period is over. Sad face.

Published January 6, 2012 by laurrx

i am a big child, it’s so sad thinking Christmas and New Year are over.

I really enjoyed winter, and i am NOT one for loving winter with the awful, awful weather we have in Scotland. The winds were terrible and it is CONSTANTLY miserable. my friends and family and me definitely made the most of the season and ignored the weather.

i really hope everyone had a great christmas and a fab new year. i hope resolutions were made and presents were given and smiles were smiled and kisses were reciprocated.

i couldn’t feel festive. my mind just wasn’t in a Christmassy state of mind, i was watching loads of Christmas movies and doing Christmas things and still couldn’t. i watched a video for Christmas nails by Kandee Johnson and loved, loved, loved them.
http://www.kandeej.com/2011/12/4-cute-christmas-nail-polish-designs.html i done these and it made me feel that OUNCE of Christmassy…

we also went ice skating at george square. in glasgow george square at christmas is such a big deal.

they have a huge fandango about putting the christmas lights up and the ice rink. we havent been ice skating in george square for 3 years so this was a fun idea and it actually was a good laugh, although it rained. i recommend doing this if visiting Glasgow at Christmas time. it’s a must. george square is very nice at christmas, the lights have been the same for as long as i can remember. but even that wasn’t making me feel fully festive. even after the drinks we got…

we also went to the garage on christmas eve eve. i can’t exactly say alot about the night as i can’t actually remember it. but the garage is actually a pretty decent club. more so on a thursday. we went on the Friday and it was a good night…i think.its always a fun night to get everyone out for birthdays and christmas nights out. i did waste my christmas eve though by being a huge hungover mess.

on Christmas eve my my mum, dad, sister and i always go to movies and have been doing so since i could sit in the movies for more than an hour. (my mum, dad and me tried to list all movies we had been to see. the worst was “The Family Stone” worse ever. Or “Little Fockers” now that movie was a let down). so we went to mcdonalds, where i inhaled my food and debated with myself wether i would keep it down…then to the cinema. Always the showcase in Linwood. We went to see New Years Eve. I absolutely loved it! It’s like Love Actually, Valentines Day and He’s Just Not That Into You (which i am now rummaging about in my cupboard looking for as i wish to watch it). It’s got a number of famous people including Abigail Breslin (who isnt the cute girl from Little Miss Sunshine – currently changing my rummaging to look for this move), Katherine Heigl (making her way to my favourite actress list), Zac Efron (he is buff now! no more sissy Troy Bolton) and Lea Michele (BOOO! least favourite). It was such an amazing movie and definitely pulled a heart string. i wont ruin it for anyone who hasnt seen it, but the story line with Halle Berry’s character was a right tear jerker! the story was so real…i know things that happen in that movie happen all the time. But i have never seen this happen in movies before (or movies i have seen). after the cinema on the way home i suggested we play Monopoly (all of a sudden i have a huge love for monopoly – although my iphone always beats me!). my dad truly beat me…

although at one point he had to give up his bank card to pay his rent! Ha!

so Christmas morning we got up and exchanged all our gifts. here are my favourites.

my main gift from my parents was a promise to buy me a T in The Park ticket. I genuinely need a full blog post to explain and talk about this and maybe share what i have for the weekend and what i’ll be taking with me – i’ll save this for nearer the time.

THE URBAN DECAY NAKED PALETTE. when linda asked me what i wanted for Christmas i had a think about it and chose this baby. it is now my favourite ever make up possession. i will never do my make up without using at least one of these eye shadows! i love the colours, i love the packaging, i love the brush that comes with and i love the fact that it comes with a small primer potion! i am so lucky to have one of these.

I Christmas Day and Boxing Day with family. On Christmas Day we got the Just Dance on (Left and Right Pictures). It was hilarious. Then Boxing Day with my Dad’s side of the family. It was such a laugh, we made lethal cocktails and played chase the ace with the big cards my mum has! i love Christmas for family time. WarmFuzzies!
for new year i had a party. everyone was pretty gone and it was such an amazing night. i have never spent new year with my friends before so it was a special one. i even made two of them cry with a small, very non important speech with was along the lines of  “this year hasn’t been the best, i know we had 21sts and holidays, but there was downs and i’m happy we have each other…” and they started bubbling. Then Melo literally couldn’t stop. “Laura you’ve opened the gates”.
The picture above is not of New Year. It’s us having a pyjama party and eating the party food that was meant to be eaten at New Year, i was just too overwhelmed and drunk to do it then. Aren’t my bright pink pyjamas awesome? they have owls on them!!
the last couple of days before i need to go back to work consist of this. Pyjamas, made in Chelsea and lounging. it has been GREAT! i am such a slob sometimes its awful! although today was pretty productive and tomorrow and saturday will be too.
Today me and a couple of friends went window shopping, and to starbucks and people watched, then went back to Stacy’s house for dinner and a slob sesh. We also made some 2012 plans to be skinny and reem and go on holiday! it’s set to be looking like a fine fine fine year to be honest.
Tomorrow i’m going shopping for a 2012 diary and then lunch with Linda, then later my cousins are coming over for a sleepover party!
Then saturday (siiiiighhhh) me and the girls are going to the panto! i hate the panto, but i think this should be a fun time.
2012 might mean the world will end, so i feel we should make the most of it. i want to make plans and stick to them, make resolutions and stick to them, make decisions and stick to them. and also i want to drive. i dont want to die in the apocalypse with a green provisional!
hugs and kisses
and smiley faces for 2012.

Snowing

Published December 18, 2011 by laurrx

It’s snowing. And im perched at my window blogging from my phone. (Awesome WordPress iPhone app).

It’s 2.40am Friday morning. I cannot sleep. Recently that’s all I’ve found with myself…I’ve not been sleeping til about 4am and getting up at 2pm. I’m so lazy and useless!

I sat for about 15 minutes with the window open and what I heard was so bliss. It was so calm and peaceful. The snow was gorgeous…gorgeous until it hits about 8am when people are up and about, walking to work and bus stops and shops etc. it’s so heavy…

20111216-024321.jpg

I don’t think this is actually the best picture. I’ll take one tomorrow when it’ll most likely be less gorgeous. And I’ll tweet it My Twitter

I’m working at 3pm tomorrow in New Look, and I bet it’ll be so dead because of the weather.

Today was so lovely I would not have predicted this snow. I did just say to Melo how gorgeous it was and how in 12 hours time I’ll be saying the exact opposite when I leave for work.

I love the snow from inside the house…it makes me feel so cosy.

So…it’s now Sunday 1.53am about 48 hours after I started this post! I am so useless!

I am so excited about this upcoming week!

Tomorrow I’m working my first Sunday in New Look…and I know you might think I’m crazy for being excited but I am looking forward to it (omg I think panted it because when I wrote the letter “I” I didn’t press space quick enough and my iPhone said “capital I” since when did this crack happen?!). After work tomorrow me and the girls are going out for Christmas dinner and to swap Christmas gifts! I’m so excited. Then on Tuesday we are going ice skating at George square! We haven’t done this in about 3 Christmases! So it’ll be so much fun and so Christmassy!!! On Wednesday my work are having the Christmas disco and all the kids love it so it should be such a nice day for them, then working 6.30-11.30 which really sucks! On Friday we are all going out, super Christmas Eve Eve night out, in the Garage!! We are all really looking forward to it!!

I think this week is gonna be mega festive and I am soooo looking forward to it!

I hope all of you have a great week leading up to Christmas!!!

Adverts are on.

Published November 10, 2011 by laurrx

i watch things on 4oD so that i don’t have to watch adverts, and i sit and turn Made in Chelsea on there’s adverts!!!!!!

at 4/4 no, yipeeee!!!!

i wish Spencer and Caggie would just get together….

So anyway, hope you’re all well. I’m a big chuffed that my blog has gotten over 200 views. I know it’s not much cause i’ve had it for ages and people must get this amount of views in one day but its made me smile a bit.

i was in ikea today and bought more storage solutions for my new room (which is, must to everyones non-surprise is become a bit messy) as i need to properly organise a few of my drawers and get boxes of things under my bed and such. i have far too much STUFF and not enough clothes… i did buy some new clothes when i got paid though. it’s the adverts again incase you didnt notice!

i borrowed the Friends boxset off Linda tonight and was meant to be watching ALL series 1 this one night until i got on my laptop an everything else seemed a bit more appealing – make up shopping, ebay looking, DVD buying, facebook stalking, youtube watching…etc.

i have LOADS of pics of the kitchen right now. my house has been upside since operation Moving Linda, and i can’t wait for it to be back to normal.

i’ll need to do another “my week in pictures” but to be honest i am so tired and too hungry to be bothered to do it right now. this ones just a wee blog of playing catch up.

I want to go to Australia in January… i really do. I need a change and new outlook on life….AND SOME SUN. it’d be great.

but for now i need some sleep and some ‘Friends’

goodnight, sweet dreams and no alarms…i wish.

-im so so so thirsty and i have a drink! and i feel it going down my belly and such! and its so yummy.
– im sleeping in my new big ole double bed! my room is looking fab and i really really like it. my mum and dad are actually the best parents for buying me it all and doing up my room for me
– my mum tells me i can have a “gathering” (yes and not a party) for new years!
– family guy is on… excuse me.

20 mins later…

so my wee heart is still playing up and i really cannot be bother with it anymore. REALLY. its the palps and now the pains and now the hard breathing. i’ll try y hardest to ignore it…

my head hurts so much…but not in the migraine-y way. i had my hair up in a donut today and just took it down and OUCHEEE! has anyone ever tried a donut. they are the most convient things and i always thought they looked so difficult to place but they are so simple and yet look really good. they are amazing in work then you just need your hair right out of your face. i got mine from Primark for £1 and apparently boots sell them for £5ish! which i thinks ridic…

isn’t peter griffin just hurrendously hysterical…heh heh heh.

so, ever so quickly. this week in pictures…

Baby D – my cousins little baby gurrrl Darcy Caroline Murtagh. She shares the same middle name as me so we are buds! and shes just the cutest little thing. Me and my mum looked after her on monday and shes so much fun. shes only 8 months just now but shes so amazing and a little cheeky thing.

so on monday night me and my friends were meant to be going out but because of my little bitchy heart and other circumstances we never so i had them up at mine and told them to get a bit dressed up. so i decided i was gonna be Minnie Mouse and put the ears i got in Hollywood Studios to good use. so i done pretty pink make up and everything and they didnt wear anything. well actually Kim (on the right) and Joanne showed up in hilarious russian hats (as worn there lol) and Kim brought Halloween cupcakes. YUM. we just sat about and caught up and had yummy Old El Paso nachos (best nachos out!).

i went to see my aunts assistant in a show last night – Acorn Antiques – and before we went we went to Jelly Hill in the west end and had nice soup and sandwiches then i had some gorgeous hot choc. look how yummy it is. highlight of my week.

my next blog should be either a ramble or a “fall faves” if i can be bothered choosing them all and taking their pictures and so on.

pictures and dickey hears

New digs

Published October 26, 2011 by laurrx

So Linda has moved out and I am now decorating her room, do its my room. I have never known how bloody stressful it is getting stuff in for a knew room!

there curtain tiebacks are possibly my favourite purchase for my new room – that or my bed. they were bought in harry corry and i actually love them and cant wait to get my curtains up!!

20111026-225825.jpg

these are my two colours – pink splash and mint. the bottom picture was the original colours – mint and queens mulberry. but the mulberry looked better in the pot and too dark on the wall. the pink is literally going on one wall (window wall) and the rest mint with blue-green decoration and my gorgeous big white bed from Ikea. i fell in love with ikea today!

this is a pic from JEM carpets – f**king nightmare. i have been shopping for a carpet for linda’s flat and now my new room and i officially do not wanna go again! it was horrible. i had my heart set on a nice blue-green carpet and i seen one in a shop with Linda and it was just too expensive. I was gonna end up going for a neutral colour like beige but i just didnt wanna settle for it!! carpet shopping – not a fave.
