Snap-Happy Sunday....but on a Monday!

I know, I know, it should have been up yesterday... *shakes fist at Blogger scheduled posts*

As I haven't taken many pictures this past week, there's a few here from as far back as January!
Chilly cold weather in January, my favourite leopard print belt, and an awesome octopus necklace

Retro Rebel, Summer Stylin'

 As it's slowly starting to warm up and the sun isn't so scared to peek around the clouds, my mind constantly wanders to summer. Sun, friends, barbecues down the skate park, and bare legs!
More after the jump...

OOTD; The 'I Wish I Was Still A Punk Kid' Edition

Feelin' like Blondie =/= looking as fabulous as Debbie Harry.

As I said in my previous (weepy, serious and very mumsy) post, B turned two on St. Patrick's Day. We had an amazing day - presents, play area, and copious amounts of cake. Hooray! The little one was so tired, he passed out before I could press play on his DVD I said he could watch before bed. But now my house is filled with toy cars, cars, and more cars - oh, and a big toy lorry that CARRIES cars. My flat's like one big trackless Scalectrix. I would take a photo of B's ridiculous collection, but I haven't the heart to attempt to organise his room to put them into one big pile...that's a job for Monday night. 
 I would put lots of pictures up of the day and such, but half of them haven't uploaded online :( so I hope you're all content with him pulling a funny face in the ball pit.

Nothing Lasts Forever, Except You And Me.

 Even though I've had my phone for nearly six months now, I'm only just starting to get used to it. I'm only starting to customise it the way I like it, and I'm now waiting on new phone covers arriving. But something it took me a long time to get to grips to was the camera on it. I was used to my little point-and-shoot Kodak, and having to mess around with the settings on the computer to make it look less grainy and more like the object I photographed! Whilst with my phone's 8mpx camera, I can zoom, focus, and even edit while I'm taking the picture. It's great fun, and I can play photographer with it!

 I just wanted to share some of the snaps I've taken, like a mini photo-dump - hopefully if I get more comfortable with it, I can start doing a little feature, like Snappy Sundays, or possibly something a bit less cheesy...

EVENT: Debenham's Press Event, S/S12

 A few weeks ago, an email popped into my inbox. So, whilst I was finishing my coffee and running a bath, I sat on the edge of the tub to read it. I spat out the coffee and almost fell into the half-full bath, bubbles and all, when I read I was invited to the Debenham's S/S12 designer's event. I'd never been to one before, and was both excited and nervous - what would I wear? Would other bloggers be there? What would it be like?
 I RSVP'd, and the day finally arrived at the end of February. After a busy day at work and rushing to get ready on the train (which included the toilet door opening itself to a busy carriage while I had my dress half-on and my kecks down at my ankles...), MammyPout came with me, and we ran around Glasgow trying to find it. Eventually, we found the event, at Royal Exchange Square...
Be warned...this is a pic heavy post!

REVIEW: Urban Decay Super-Saturated Lip Colour

 This is a new one for me - lipgloss in a crayon? Crazy. Doubtful as I was, I put Urban Decay's new Super-Saturated lip colours to the test...

OOTD; The "Rare Sunny Day" Edition

 Sunday in Scotland brought beautiful sunshine and mild weather to us - which was a lovely surprise, as March in Central Scotland generally ignored the rule of 'in like a lion, out like a lamb' rule, it goes more like 'in like a lion, out like a droont angry cat'. So to wake up to pure blue skies and kids out playing was bliss, especially on my first day off in seven days!

REVIEW: Dior VERNIS Incognito

 I don't review nail polish often as the majority of the shades I own are nothing to write home about. But when I get a good 'un, I make sure I write home about it. 
 I was at the Debenhams Spring/Summer 2012 press event on Wednesday, and had an absolute ball (post to be up tomorrow night!) - on top of this, I received a couple of cosmetic goodies to share with you all. One of these, was the new Dior Vernis polishes. These shades haven't been released yet - so lucky readers, you get a sneak peek!
