It has felt to me that January has been in two parts: The first where I was still in a slight Sailor Jerries and chocolate reindeer induced haze and the other where I was constantly taking pictures of gorgeous items then writing posts about them on my new laptop (I’m old skool – I don’t do tablets). I’ve already developed a little callous from clicking my track pad constantly. This obviously means I’m a proper writer now, right?
I’ve been watching… Gotham as you know I like quirky geek and goth things. So far the series has subtly introduced three well known characters but don’t expect a new character with an origin story true to the comics each week. Gotham is choosing to go it’s own way in that respect. I love that Sean Pertwee (Worzel Gummidge’s son) is playing a rather bad-ass version of Alfred the butler!
I’ve been listening to… Northern lad Ash Hunter’s debut album Rural Music and even though shoe gazey folk isn’t really my bag, I really the track Grand England it has that ol’ magic of making you feel nostalgic for a place you’ve never been.
I’ve been sniffing… Lola a perfume by Signature fragrances that is sexy, fruity and sweet thanks to these notes:
Top: African Orange Flower
Heart: Jasmine, Patchouli
Base: Cedar, Rose, White Honey
This is my personality in a scent basically! I can’t wait to buy one of their beautiful full sized cut glass bottles. The Bloke has also been on their site and is looking at buying a sample (for £4.95) of something he fancies.
I’ve been writing…For a new website aimed at female bloggers called The Click. This month I’ve written the feature ‘5 Unusual Sources Of Inspiration’ for anyone who’s got bloggers blog or who wants to vary their articles a little. I think I will be playing ‘the album game’ soon myself. I’m looking forward to writing next months article, the content of which I will keep as a surprise.
I’ve been blogging about…
OOTD: Pretty Casual (get the pun there?)
Home – Not So Neutrals showing how a neutral palette can be interesting.
I’ve also wrote two summing up posts (one for 2014 and one for why I actually like Winter) which I’m not going to link to on this summing up post, otherwise it might interrupt the time space continuum and generate a black hole in the blogging world, or something.
