Girls gone wild in Cancun- Summer 13

So recently my girls and I jetted off to Cancun, Mexico to celebrate one of their birthdays. Cancun has been on my list of places to visit for as long as I can remember so when the plan finally materialised, I was mad excited!

We had a blast! Every moment was incredible, whether simply laying by the pool, backing Tequila shots like women with serious alcohol problems or being cheap skates and haggling with the locals to get discount on our souvenirs- it truly was a holiday to remember!

If you have ever thought about going to Mexico, go! And make sure you hit up Coco Bongo and Congo Bar. 

Here are some of my favourite pix from Cancun. Disfrutar!! (that means 'Enjoy' in Spanish- he he)

My first tattoo... A Life quote

I have never really been the tattoo type. Ink never did anything for me. Admittedly, seeing a bit of ink on a guy almost certainly added to that sex appeal but to actually consider getting my own bit of body art? Nah, never! But all that changed at the start of this year. Dont ask me what caused the change because I honestly could not tell you. All I know is the idea of getting a tattoo started becoming more and more attractive to me. I dabbled with different tattoo ideas (for ages). I looked at some really pretty designs and I was almost certain I was going to go with the Love Infinity tattoo, but that novelty soon wore off. I decide I wanted my 1st bit of ink to be something more personal, more meaningful, more original. I decided I was going to get a quote tattoo.

Learning to find comfort in discomfort

<img src="innerpeace.jpg" alt="howtofindinnerpeace" />

How do we learn to find comfort in discomfort? It's basically like learning to be happy even when you feel sad. Learning to smile, even when things don't quite go your way. It's quite challenging at the best of times to be fair. No one wants to smile when they have had a crappy day at work and I am yet to meet someone who thinks it's joyful when they are receiving ridiculous charges for being overdrawn on their account. I guess the trick is to not let these circumstances consume you.

CJG black boots

River Island black shoes
River Island ankle boots

I haven't posted on here for what seems like forever. My blog has been well and truly neglected whilst I have been busy dealing with life. I can't lie, I needed a bit of me time, time away from it all, time to breathe. For my regular readers and enjoyers... I do apologise.

Anyway, what better way to come back than with some lush shoes for us to stare at, dribble over and go out and purchase (after all, it is pay day this week... yaaay!). I peeped the new arrivals in some of my fav high street stores and look at these beauts I came across in River Island and Topshop...

I am in serious LOVE with no.3

Beyonce is coming to London

Music icon, Beyonce has announced she will be playing four gigs in London this year as part of her Mrs. Carter world tour. Queen B will be performing at The O2 on April 29th, April 30th, May 1st and May 3rd.

Tickets go on sale to the general public on February 23rd though O2 customers can get them 48 hours earlier. I am in no doubt that the tickets will sell out in a matter of minutes (especially after her incredible Super Bowl performance last night) so get in there early.

 I have always wanted to see Beyonce live so I will be waiting patiently at my laptop the very second they go on sale!

They don't make them like they used to... Just reminiscing

I miss the good old days. That's not to say, I don't love life now because I do but I'm an 80's kid. I just miss the way certain things used to be; The simplicity of life before all these technological advancements. I miss the innocent days, how great life was before I discovered what heartache and pain felt like ;'(

My urge for ink

<img src="claudianelsontattoo.jpg" alt="Claudia Nelson ink" />

For some strange reason, the past 2 weeks or so have seen me dabbling with the idea of getting a tattoo. Yep! You heard me correctly; The body ink has started calling my name. To be honest, I never thought it would call my name, let alone have me listening to the calls. Don't ask me what has brought on this sudden urge for ink, as I'm not sure I know. It might have a teeny weeny bit to do with the fact that I am following model, Claudia Nelson (pictured above) on Instagram and every time she posts new pix, I fall more in love with her beautifully coloured floral sleeve and body art; I think it's so sexy! My new quest to be more spontaneous and adventurous might also be partly to blame. I dunno! But what I am certain of is the fact that I'm interested.

Loving the Blazers

Growing up, I was the ultimate tom boy and anything remotely baggy or boyish would usually catch my eye. Baseball caps, hoodies, baggy jeans, oversized t-shirts- I lived in them! There was a stage when it was a struggle to get me to wear anything but trainers. Girly stuff just didn't interest me, not at all! I used to save my pathetic McDonalds wage to buy ridiculously expensive Nike and Adidas trainers. What fuelled my love of trainers? I blame Hip Hop! :)

Then somehow, somewhere along the line, I lost my love for trainers. I went from wearing them all the time to wearing them to the gym, which basically meant not wearing them at all.

I have decided, I want to fall back in love with trainers again. Late last year, I purchased some grey Adidas high tops and I freekin love them. When I wear them, I feel slightly cool. Here they are...
I love the simplicity of these bad boys, plus, I have a thing for grey trainers. Boring for some, but I reckon grey can look really slick.
I'm going to buy some more trainers and I am leaning more and more towards a pair of Nike Blazers. Still not decided on the colour, I have picked out some of my favourites.

I love these dark atomic teal vintage blazers. They're a bit lush aren't they!

Value the beauty of the moment

Today I am feeling quite... ummmm.... I'm not quite sure how to describe it. Reflective maybe? I woke up this morning and entered into a deep and long journey of thoughts, which got me thinking...

I kissed goodbye to my hair- The Big Chop

<img src="hairbreakage.jpg" alt="hairbreakage" />

I am starting to feel like a bit of a broken record these days. Like I am constantly saying the same thing over and over again... 'learn to let go.' There must be like 10 posts (ok, so maybe that's a slight exaggeration) on this blog talking about letting go and walking away. Usually I say it when it comes to matters of the heart over which you have little or no control or when something no longer serves its purpose or makes you happy, but this time it was different. I had to let go of something else. Not a dude, not a friend, not a sad situation... Instead, it was my hair! Eeeek!
