5 of my favourites and apologies.

Published October 11, 2012 by laurrx

i have been terrible with my blog…i have been terrible with the organisation of my life altogether! i had so much fun writing my blog before – regardless of how many readers or followers i ever had – i don’t know why i ever stopped.

recently I’ve found myself thinking “oh that’s my favourite…blah blah” but in actual fact I don’t have a favourite movie, i have bazillions, and I don’t have a favourite food, i’m a greedy girl and have bazillions. i have lists and lists of favourite songs and favourite movies. I’ve just had an idea to narrow it down to 5. it’s not an easy job…

my favourite movies 

mary poppins – by far the best live action Disney movie ever. “best Disney movie” is one of the most difficult questions asked.
sleepless in seattle – i’ll say it here, i’d rather watch the same action film 10 times over than watch something like The Notebook. i hate sappy love stories, but sleepless in seattle gets me all the time.
breakfast at Tiffany’s – what can i say? i adore Audrey Hepburn and one day i’ll live a life as non-fussed as she is. she is a gorgeous actress and the story is amazing.
the Grinch – best christmas movie ever, i could easily watch this every day of the festive season! and i sit and say the words along with all those Who’s and the Grinch.
the day after tomorrow – without a doubt one of the most believable “disaster/global warming” movies. Jake Gylenhaal just adds to the awesomeness.
i want to add so much more…

my favourite songs

wham !club tropicana – i dont even know why? its such a fab song, it makes me think of holidays and summer and those things make me happy really. i love the birds at the start of it, cos it gets me all excited ’cause i know thats my jammmm!
oasis, she’s electric – one of oasis’ best songs, completely! i dont usually care for the whining tones of noel or liam but this songs really catchy and happy.
justin timberlake, sexyback – has to be here, it’s a complete tune and he is a complete BABE. the live version from his futuresex/loveshow with lovestoned before it has to be the best thing i’ve ever witnessed.
marvin gaye and tammi terrell, ain’t no mountain high enough – always think of the scene from stepmom. such an amazing song, it’s a really happy cheery tune and reminds me of my sister somehow.
take that, never forget – should really be at the very start of this list. i’ve seen take that sing this twice. once at their never forget tour and then at their progress tour. the song actually gives me goosebumps, the atmosphere at both concerts was phenomenal. it was also the last song played at my 21st birthday party, so it means alot to me and reminds me of me and family drunken!

my favourite foods

any pasta that me and my sister make – every wednesday night i go to Linda’s for dinner, we always make pasta and every week it’s a different sauce. we cut up onions, peppers, chillis, any meat, then throw in some spices and garlic and then chopped tomatoes. it’s always different and theres only a bad sauce once every 6 weeks or so.
homemade soup – my mums homemade soup is so yummy, nobodys will ever taste the same (not even the pot i have simmering over at the cooker!!) it’s great on rainy/winter nights.
my dads curries – my dad makes immense curries. the spicier the better! i love spicy food, i try put chilli powder into everything i ever make!!
Melo’s mum’s food – my friend Melo’s mum make a mean indian curry! any kind really. it’s amazing, she makes amazing dahl and amazing chipati’s and amazing rice. everything is, well, amazing.
TGI’s boneless wings – i can’t every make these as good as TGI’s do, as much as i try!!! i also love Applebee’s boneless wings a bit better but seen as i live here and not america, these make do!!

favourite TV shows

friends – whose favourite TV show isnt friends? i’ve never come across anyone who doesn’t like friends. my dad sits and his catchphrase for watching friends is “is this supposed to be funny” but he sat every thursday night and watched it and even laughed!
lost – might have to watch this over and over and over again before i actually get the plot, ’cause at the end it’s complete “HUH” material. made no sense, but the suspense at the end of every episode made me lost about half of the sleep i should have gotten in 2009!
ugly betty – so gutted it lasted 4 seasons, i loved every minute of UB! she was by far the most irritating character at times but so entertaining and i loved her transformation. America Ferrera is such a babe!
one tree hill – it took linda 7 seasons before i even started to watch it, i tried twice to start watching the DVDs but half way through season 1 i hated it. so third time lucky she gave me season 3 and said it gets good then and i loved it!
new girl – its really new and hasnt got a patch on friends or even things like scrubs, but oh my god, i love new girl and am patiently waiting for the next season and the first season only ended a fortnight ago! i wish i was Jess! she’s actually amazing.

smaller lists that need no explanation i cannot be bothered with! four lists should suffice but for now i need to try not burn this homemade soup….wish me luck

Fall Favourites

Published November 16, 2011 by laurrx

i just want to share all my fall favourites, i don’t want to have to a monthly favourite blog every month. i change my mind like i change my clothes really. So i just went through my hair and make up products and pulled out what i think i have been using most in this season.

 armani diamonds perfume. i have wearing this non stop. its such a gorgeous smell, and it’s not summery. i always wear florally/sweet smelling perfumes but this one is perfect for fall/winter as its got notes of vanilla in it. i am not a fan of vanilla in the slightest but vanilla candles always remind me of Christmas.

these two i have been using for the same reasons. i honestly feel like since it has gotten colder outside i look paler than ever. i fake tanned to go out for my cousins birthday and it was so rushed, so it was very bad. so i’ll need to pay more attention when tanning next time. i always apply hoola to my face, really lightly if its a normal day or a bit more for going out along with contouring and everything like that. i hate looking pale, i feel like i look really ill and tired. so i need colour and its alot healthier than sunbeds!!!

i am an absolute victim of chapped lips in the winter. never mind vaseline (unless its bedtime and its smeared ALL over your face!) this is amazing. i got it about 4 years ago in spain for about 2euros. its really good and smells of parma violets (you know those sweets that apparently taste like soap…they help heart burn by the way!). i also love carmex and vaseline but this has to trump both.


as well as chapped lips in the winter i get dry hands. the l’occitaine hand cream on the right it amazing. i have never used l’occitaine products until this and i only got this free from a magazine. it really helps my dry hands this season. and of course my hands need to be clean clean clean. i am not a germophobe but before i eat or when i feel like my hands are quite dirty i’ll use this. it’s cute with my star sign on it and everything. i got it from bath and body works from the Florida outlets! i love it.

this is a benefit primer, and i know i always bang on about the Lancome primer i love but this one is really good to put on with your foundation. like literally mixing it in with it. its a kind of pink colour, and it kind of brightens the face up. and during winter it’s always nice to have a little more colour or glow in the season. it also smells like raspberrys or something.

i wanted to change the faves a bit and not just do make up and stuff. i borrowed GG season 4 off my friend, Joanne and started watching it on Friday and finished on Sunday…i clearly had no life that whole weekend there. i also borrowed the Friends boxset from Linda and i have kind of been watching it in the background, as i have seen them all before. but just keeping them on is a nice distraction from what i should be doing like tidying, searching for jobs, applying to uni…etc etc.
speaking of jobs. i left my job. blah blah blah. so i left. that was me telling yous why and me ending the story with “so i left” cos i am so so so so so…. sick of telling the story of why i hate Morrisons.
i will need to have some sort of constructive blog post put together with proper paragraphs and not an absolute riot like they are. i feel so bad for rachel when she is asked to seperate the hangers….
anyway, i hope this was  delight to read…my friends have all discovered my blog this week and find it just hysterical.

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.

ps i have a hospital appointment tomorrow to see whats the deal with these pesky palps and pains…send out good thoughts.

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!!

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.

for now though i am in bed watching khloe and lamar (basically cause there is nothing else on tv) and wondering what else to watch…. 90210 or desperate housewives….

oh the choices.

New hair and ramble.

Published October 17, 2011 by laurrx

Hola amigos.
just a small ramble. this gorgeous glittery pink wall is from Sugarcube – www.sugarcubeglasgow.com. on friday i went out for my friend Nicole’s birthday. we got a booth and it included drinks and everything, it was so so so good. and the walls! the walls!!! arent they fabulous!! i was a little bit drunk, just a little… then dying in work yesterday. oh dear!

i also got my hair done on Thursday and i am loving it.
it is not properly clear, this was a picture taken to send to Melo but i like my hair here. i went for more blond and a nice trim. my hair looks healthier and i will definetly start going to the hairdressers when i need to. because i hadn’t been since December – how awful. my hairdresser was mortified and disgusted with me ha! this is also a picture of me, Dan and Lisa in sugarcube on Friday night.

Next up, i got my birthday present from Linda! isn’t it pretty. (ps my 21st was in july…) but it was definetly worth the wait!!!


not much more to say. tomorrow i am going to see Linda’s new flat tomorrow. i feel like i haven’t been excited or anything else just now, but to be frank it has definetly not hit me yet and i fear it will when we go see the flat. it’s also her birthday on tuesday and she has a week of work. so this is a really big week and i couldnt be happier for her!!

oVo, Furbies and Holidays.

Published August 8, 2011 by laurrx

Hola! Just another dull, dull, DULL Monday!

Had such an enjoyable weekend there. Friday I hung at the “Ranch” (my aunt and uncles house, it’s really just in the middle of nowhere) and came to the conclusion that I’m getting Pink Edition Monopoly for my Christmas! YEY!

I played Monopoly with my boyfriend a few weeks ago and loved it – even though i got my ass whooped!! Then i downloaded it on my iPhone and love it! So i was telling her and I googled “pink monopoly” n she was like “I’LL GET HER IT!” one Christmas present down.

So on Saturday my younger cousin came over to chill with me, as all i done was sit on the couch in front of the TV. I was trying my hardest to get her to play Glasgow Monopoly with me – tried and failed.

I’ve been dying for a night out and got one! WOO! Linda and her friends, James and Maria, and I went to oVo in Merchant City on Saturday night. I actually really loved it!
Club OVO Glasgow – Fashionable clubbing for the social generation!
Give it a look and see what you think. It’s like Tunnel for grown ups and when my girls come back from Turkey i am WELL taking them there because we’re getting WAY to old for Tunnel as its full of under agers and orange guuurrrls.
The drink was cheap and it wasn’t hurrendously busy, like that Saturday-bus where you are literally grinding the person behind you. And music you ask? RnB. Just the ticket.

Yesterday afternoon Ck and Neil (my sisters friends) came over to deliver a belated birthday present and i LOVED it. They bought me a bottle of Malibu and a FURBY! Now it’s a long story! I have a pacemaker and when Furbies first came out it was declared that persons with pacemakers should not be near them as there is a chip in them that can interact/interfere with them. But it’s a wee cutsie! Called SAlly (or Fernando). Look at it’s cute eyes!

So HOLIDAYS!
Not long now i hit up GC 🙂 The hotel
It’s amazing and i haven’t been yet! It’s a complete chilled out week away for and my gurrrl Melo.

We’re gonna come back like Akon.

Love and all,
LCSx
