Let's Get The Party Started

As a bit of a penny pincher, I often grudge spending money on myself for new clothes as I feel I should just recycle and spend it on something else...(house, cats, food lol)...but as it is my gorgeous cousins birthday party coming up in the next few weeks, I decided it's about time that I treated myself to a new dress (obviously something not too expensive and that I can wear again).

As I'm a 'bigger' lady, I often find that due to my shape, I can never find something that is flattering on me, but I managed to narrow it down to the following four...can't wait till pay day!

Are you going anywhere special soon?

I Moustache You a Question

Cliché eh?

Anyone who knows me, know that I am OBSESSED with a little Belgian detective known as Hercule Poirot.

I have, the now rather fashionable, obsession with moustaches...I loved them first!

I own everything from a mat for my front door, to jewellery, to bedding...even my cat has a moustache! I don't know what it is about them, but they are just awesome!

Do you have any weird obsessions?

The legend himself :)

Wish I had this when Marcucio was ill!

Giraffes...another obsession...giraffe with a moustache, even better!

Marcucio <3

On Your Own Backdoor

As a public transport user (I'll learn to drive one day) I'm always moaning that there is never anything to do within reasonable travel time/ the other half and I decided it's about time we stopped moaning and started doing!

Over the weekend we decided that the first place to start was the new Transport Museum in Glasgow, now the Riverside Museum. The other halfs Grandad was the last man to ever drive the Highlander train and we thought it would be nice to go and have a wee look in memory of him.

When we got there we weren't too pleased to notice a lot of obvious changes (new place right?) but the train had been repainted a different colour :(...despite this, it turned out pretty good, and we didn't realise we could go on the Tall Ship! which was pretty below are a few pics from our wee day oot.

Next stop...JOUSTING!!

Buttons! Wonderful buttons!

So, when I lost the plot and decided that making button bouquets for my upcoming nuptials was a good idea (did I mention I need to make 6?!) I thought I better start looking for buttons.

On the assumption that finding buttons was relatively easy, I just started wrong was I?! There are literally hundreds upon hundreds of different sizes, shapes, colours, everything...trying to decide is proving difficult...this is where I need someone to help my non decision making head out.

While all the scrolling for buttons, I discovered the numerous amounts of things people do with them...who knew buttons could be so versatile? I've put together some little lovelies I found that I plan on DIY'ing when the Wedding projects are done with.

Not sure if I would wear these, but pretty cute...would maybe add some to a plain little t-shirt to brighten it up!
