A well deserved catch up

Hey Dolls :)

I feel like I haven't spoken to anybody in ages! I hope you're all well! Things are all a little topsy turvy at the moment so just wanted to take some time out to have a bit of a ramble!

First of all, February is always my favorite month though it's ridiculously hectic - it's mine, Nick's and my two best friends birthday's in February (never mind Valentines day and Nick and I's anniversary, in fact Nick's birthday is on V-day). So far February has been filled with drunken antics, karaoke, lots of hairspray and eyeliner. Here's a few snaps


I turn 23 on the 26th and to celebrate both our birthdays, Nick and I have booked to go to Paris!! We have two days in the city and then a day in Disneyland. If any of you have suggestions of things we can do (some non-touristy things would be splendid) I would be much obliged. I genuinely cannot contain my excitement for Disneyland, if you're new to my blog you should know I am THE biggest Disney fan. Luckily I have a lovely boyfriend who accepts and encourages this love!

One of the biggest changes since the beginning of the year is that I've started slimming world. I've had a couple of questions on twitter about my diet so I may do a separate post but the thing that attracted me to slimming world is it promotes a balanced diet - it isn't based on a point system and instead helps to train you into eating a varied balanced diet each day without denying yourself treats. So far I'm edging ever closer to losing my first stone. Although numbers wise I can see I've lost weight I haven't really noticed it on myself until I saw that top photo. I've still got a long way to go but it's all quite exciting!! Hopefully one day I will have cheekbones like this

I joke of course (though some resemblance of cheek bones would be stellar)

I also just got an I-phone 4 the other day - to be honest I probably should never of been allowed it, touch screens give me the rage and I'm rather clumsy so I need to find a nice protective cover for it - again if you have any sellers/websites you recommend please let me know! Also is there any apps I need? The first I downloaded was the I am T-Pain as it's legend but I need some entertainment! It has taken me about 3746484 hours fiddling with itunes and my phone but finally I managed to edit this as my ring tone



Yep - that's something that actually happened, I have hedwigs theme as my ringtone!

Lots of Love
Nicola
