Life Lately - Tattoos, haircuts and money making

This is going to be one of those blog posts containing things that I wanted to share but didn't really want to dedicate an entire blog post to. I've been super busy recently, but a good kind of busy! The kind of busy that's filled with holidays and parties and meals out and positive change. We're coming up to the busiest time of year so I'm really excited to say that I've already made a good start on my Christmas shopping (eek!) meaning that when December rolls around we'll hopefully be able to relax and enjoy it all. That's the plan, anyway!

So where do I start? Well, i've been eBaying my socks off recently. One last push for 2015 and then I'll be taking a break until next year. I have very almost claimed back our third bedroom from the dumping ground it had become and I'm excited to start buying bits for it after Christmas to make it a useable space again. I'll be glad to take a little break from endless trips to the post office, that's for sure!

I've well and truly been bitten by the tattoo bug. I'm going to admit that I actually really like the process of getting them done, it's quite addictive! Recently I got this super sweet trapeze lady on my leg and I am absolutely in love with her. She's a little bit of freedom and trapeze acts have always been a favourite of mine. I'm so over the moon to keep her on me forever!

I also recently had most of my hair chopped off. It was totally a spur of the moment decision but at the end of the day, it's only hair and it grows back quickly enough! It's now a messy graduated bob and the best thing about it is my hair feels a billion times better for it. It's also super easy to look after now, no more spending forever drying it!

This year we've really gotten back into seeing live music. Ben & I used to go out to see bands all the time and it's something we're now making an effort to do more of again. We generally have the same taste in music so usually all is good!
Next week we're off to see The Prodigy which I am stupidly excited about as we haven't seen them for years. Ben isn't so keen on them but he's a good un' and got us tickets nonetheless.... that's love for ya! They are literally one of my all time favourites and i've loved them solidly since I was about 8 years old. Not even kidding there.

Next up, we've been enjoying the last days of autumn and getting out as much as possible. I love being outdoors and can't think of spending a rainy day at home. Not when there are puddles to splash in and leaves to kick! Miss E's walking has been amazing during the past few weeks and not only do we rarely need the buggy now, she also hasn't needed carrying either which my arms have been super thankful for!

Lastly, we're currently starting to think about holidays for 2016. We've got a few destinations in mind and I really want to squeeze in another Disneyland trip too so we'll see how our time goes! Our passports are due to be renewed early next year so I want to make the most of having them and venture out to some new places!

What have you been up to lately? And have you booked any holidays for next year yet? Let me know your plans in a comment!


  1. LOVE that tattoo! So pretty, and I love the idea that it represents freedom :) Enjoy seeing the Prodigy, they're a band I've never got around to seeing but I bet they put on a great show.

  2. Your new hair style looks lovely. It suits you well.
