The thing is...

Well after nearly four years of illness I am feeling...urrrmm...Let's not jinx it! I think it is about time that I 'find' myself again, *Sigh at the cliche*. Thanks to seeing so much creative 'stuff and things' on flickr and etsy, I have again started to paint and draw. Hopefully in time I may get quite good-OK a long time! However I really have the bug for finding my own look and fashion. I must admit I think this has been kicked into focus as my 30th is coming up on July 22nd. Also I have been looking at Inside a black Apple. Her art work is amazing! She also has a fashion blog at Some Girls Wander by Mistake. A totally awe inspiring look at her fashion inspirations. Forgive me for writing 'she' but I do not know Ms Black Apple's name. ahh well that is it for now!


I love the layered look Ms Black Apple has achieved by wearing vintage petticoats and a skirt. My favorite find on the blog is for sock dreams, a funky sock and saucy good collection! I am told a prezzie may be coming my way from the boyf from here! The argyle kilt socks me hopes! It must be my Scottish heritage coming through there! So now where do I begin? Well firstly for my health I am loosing weight, steadily and slowly. Secondly I need to trawl the shops further a field than this saddo town! Dorothy Perkins is as wild as it gets. The second hand shops are rubbish! Dddddddddaaaahhhh! My last stage will be to find some material and make my own stuff. I am rather fussy in general and certainly when it comes to materials! I really want some chunky Dolly shoes but finding them is like gold dust. Well if any one has any fashion ideas let me know. If you know any good shops in the UK leave a comment.

I do find it hard finding 'a good fit' as I am not only tubby but as my mum calls me 'short arse' too. Nightmare! I think I am going to have to get creative with some things I already own but I dread going through my wardrobe as there is sooo much stuff. Most of which I do not wear! Charity shop jobby me thinks! any hoo I am going for a thinkie about all of tis! Take care xxxxxxxxxx

I just realized that my comment to this posting never made it so I'm trying again. I had initially said that I'm so glad you're feeling better. As someone with chronic health issues, I understand the joy of feeling better.
