Albert Hammond Jr – “Hard To Live (In The City)”

I love this song so much. I first heard it when I first moved to Bristol last year, and thought that it wasn’t really that hard to live in the city (you see what I did there? Oh never mind)
After living here a year or so, its still not too hard to live in the city, but sometimes, this girl needs a bit of country side time. I’m off to the Wife’s house tonight (getting the train to Castle Cary after drinks with some old colleagues…that can’t be good) and I can’t wait to see my lovely accounting geek friends!
As usual, the lyrics are under the cut.

Ribbons and Pearls

A quick make this evening, to match my outfit this weekend (I bought a lovely grey satin and black jersey dress, oops!)
I saw a necklace in Topshop recently where it had some large beads tied onto a ribbon. It looked really cool, but as a crafting type person, I just couldn’t spend £15 on something that I could do myself.
On my way home today, I stopped by Primark (oh my GOSH I love the new Bristol store.) and picked up a £2 faux pearl necklace, which had larger beads in the middle and gradually got smaller. I cut the string, and chose the 7 large beads from the middle of the necklace. With a drill bit, I made the holes larger, and threaded the pearls onto a bit of ribbon I had. A knot after each bead, and I soon ended up with this:

So instead of spending £15, I spent about £2.50. Which totally justifies buying my new dress, right?

Pretty Sparkly Things!

Yesterday I recieved these earrings in the post from Zoe. She’s just started making jewellery, and this was a really nice surprise! I wanted to say Thank You here :) Its making me want to use my jewellery making stuff now!
