Where Is My Mind #11 – Henrietta Lacks & Youtube Loves

Read More

Let’s just say this weeks been an odd one of sorts. I finished a book that I didn’t even know anything about, I got Tonsilitis which made me both productive at odd hours in the morning & sleep entire afternoons away. It’s just been odd, really odd because we also watched the Odd Thomas a film based on a series of books that I now wish to read again, I think it will be the next set I read.

Where Is My Mind #6 – Xmas Edit

christmas tree 2014

Where is my mind? Well Christmas of course, like pretty much everyone else is. I’m writing this on Christmas Eve just a few hours after my last shift at work finished. It’s one of those bizarre work days where everything gets cleaned down in a ritualistic way even though in engineering we all know it will be a mess within a day or two of our return. I think we need Christmas to decompress and just breathe or sleep in many cases (myself included). Continue reading “Where Is My Mind #6 – Xmas Edit”

Where Is My Mind 2 – Tv, Songs & Blurry Days

This week I’m having a revival of Ally McBeal it’s all nostalgic watching season one still filmed in square. On Tuesday this got stuck on repeat in my head when Radio 2 played the ugachaca song that’s all the way through Ally Mcbeal when the dancing baby appears.

If ya didn’t know like me it’s Blue Swede – Hooked On A Feeling.

I’ve been having a complete mare with spots on my chin that refuse to clear up. I don’t know if they are the same ones or just new ones keep appearing but its annoying.

After buying an overnight face mask I’ve Googled multiple times about them and found very few answers. If you can help please comment or tweet me. Do you apply anything between cleanser and the mask other than an eye cream ? Is it an alternative to a serum at night? Do you apply anything on top of the mask after as to me this seems pointless… I’m so confused.

where is my mind 2 - eye patch

Then over the weekend I’ve been basically DOA! I spent 3-4 hours in A & E to get my eye checked as there was something stuck in my eye. I then got told yesterday that it hadn’t all been gotten out and I had to have the eye doctor scrape across my eye with a needle. Yes my eye was numbed but hell that’s scary when you have that done. When I was done I was lucky enough that my fell had his sunglasses that I could nab as everything felt super bright. To top it all off I get to put ointment 4 times a day in my eye that after applying makes everything blurry and you can then taste it afterwards, yuk! I’ve already had the eye eye captains I wonder what jokes I’ll get tomorrow at work!

I’ve bearably managed to get through the day having come across a new addiction White Collar which is available on Amazon Instant & Netflix. This is all thanks to Through The Looking Glass and Down The Rabbit Hole click her link and read all about White Collar. Let’s just all sigh and be happy about how good that man looks in a suit. I’ve just got through Season 1 over the weekend & can’t wait to watch some more.

Where Is My Mind 1 – Saying Goodbye To Mrs Doubtfire

This will be my little space for dropping all the random thoughts I’ve had recently. What I’ve been obsessing about or just random thoughts I want to get out there into the world. A little piece of the crazy that’s going on in my head.

1) It all started with ViviannaDoesMakeup doing a Hair101 tutorial. This developed into me attempting to do curls & waves in my hair. Later this turned into looking at 1940s vintage curl tutorials on Youtube, lots of them. I finally cracked it this week and did a pretty alright job of it with my Ghds finally. See  Pink & Curls – Fotd

Having a serious craving to watch Orange Is The New Black all over again. I have the opening soundtrack stuck in my head. Can’t decide if it’s driving me nuts or not that it’s gonna be ages until the next season. Loving that she’s on the front cover of Julys Allure magazine. If you are as crazy about this as me let me know, to keep yourself amused untill next season follow I_threw_my_pie_for_you_ on instagram.

Robin Williams, what more can I say other than he will be greatly missed. We were only watching Robots last week and it’s strange to think that there won’t be more films with him in. I’ve grown up watching Hook every single Christmas it’s a tradition that will carry on. Over the weekend we have gone through Mrs Doubtfire because my jaw dropped when my fella said he hadn’t watched it. We sorted that one out and it’s even more funny watching it as an adult. Then we went on to his favourite Good Morning Vietnam which is serious funny and completely sad as well. Then we went for one more and choose Bicentennial Man which completely hit a nerve, tissues were brought out at the end.

Along the vintage feel to this week I’ve been loving listening to Paloma Faiths new album A Perfect Contradiction. It just has so much soul to it and I just can’t get enough of it even if I can’t sing.
