I am in love with the coverage of the winter Olympics, espesh as we can view it in HD. What an absolute treat. You can get a great perspective of the event and feel like you are really there. Ive loved watching the Moguls and of course the figure skating. I know our representatives, Kemp and King are no "Torville and Dean" but watching them (and in fact any other nation perform) is thrilling. I could watch figure skating forever. Im fact, some of my fave videos on youtube are Torville and Deans classics.
Ok - update on my scraproom. Its getting there (pics coming soon). I have had to purge even more stuff in my room which I think I will try and sell on ebay to raise some cash to redo our dining room. I was inspired to get saving for it after a trip to Selfridges today. I wasn't planning a Selfridge shop but how could I deny a visit to the Trafford Centre after passing it by on my way to and back from lunch with my lovely friends Louisa and Rachel? I promised myself a small budget spendage but not before I paid a visit to the monster of all heart attack creating joints; namely Kripsy Kremes drive thru?
Ive never been to one of their drive thru's before but I was not disappointed. There is a working factory in there where you get **free** samples for being fabulous customers!. Straight off production and into your gob. I had to take this picture. It makes me feel very happy. Warm and sweet and fresh. I bought a very large sum of them for Mark and I to devour over the course of the next few days (read that as one day) and I was so happy I went. I do wish, however, they would have a larger selection (like Dunkin Donuts) but for now, the Lemon Glaze is my absolute favvo. MLAM, NOM, SLURP.
So Selfridges? Man, I love that shop. Super sleek, uber trendy and has everything that I want/need/dream of. I discovered it has a Cath Kidston boutique inside only today and I came away with these two delish things to make my heart sing.
A debit card holderAnd a mumsy purse with a clasp. I love clicking clasps! Espesh when Im in a queue, I like to make music up to the clickingness much to the annoyance to the world at large!
I have a terrible penchant for spots right now, in fact its practically becoming an illness. I don't think I will ever tire of them. But anyway, Cath made my day - so cheers, love.
I also sneaked a couple of yummables from Paperchase including a kraft book filled with really flimsy yet oh-so-delectable kraft pages along with a proper photo album to file all my artwork in for a portfolio I have to present to a client in a few weeks. More about that coming soon :)
So on my way out of Selfridges I noticed a colour scheme I keep being drawn to - Beige and ruby red. I spotted this wallpaper by Farrow and Ball that Id like to line the dining room walls with
And this fabrix to cover the table and make runners with
To match these lovely units which are Ikeas finest but also my hearts biggest desire
But I have to save like mad now to pay for it all, either that or put on a pair of red shoes and walk the streets of Manchester for a few shifts (see yests post!)
