Black tie, birthdays, blogging fail & new additions!

Well.. Don't really know where to start with this post!

It's been so long and even though I've been like "yeaaaahhh, back on the blogging train".. I've failed at blogging :(

It's been a crazzzzy few weeks/months as for those who don't know, I hosted a black tie ball on Saturday 7th November in memory of my sister and a close friend to raise money for Bone Cancer Research Trust so that has taken a huge chunk of my life/time recently.

The evening was INCREDIBLE and it couldn't have been better - to be surrounded by friends, family, old school teachers for such a special occasion.. A night I will never forget. 

The support we had on the night from both people there and people on Facebook etc sending us "good luck" messages was so overwhelming and I'm so grateful for every text/Facebook post and tweet.

Everything was planned to the smallest detail whether it be the home made cupcakes on each place setting to the shoes I wore! We've not totalled all the money yet but we've estimated around £5000 for BCRT which makes me so incredibly proud.

2 days after the ball was my birthday - normally I'm like a child when it comes to birthdays but I barely had a chance to think about it this year. 

Me and Nick travelled up to Blackpool the night before my birthday so we could have a couple of days together after the mad months before which was lovely - as chavvy and messy as people think Blackpool is, I love nothing more than to have a couple of drinks over looking the sea, all snuggled in big coats and beanie hats followed by some fun with the 2p slot machines! 

I had a lovely birthday and all my family kindly gave me spending money ready for a couple of days in Birmingham at the end of the month at the Christmas Markets and Good Food Show... I'm on my way James Martin!




Finally on the life update - one of the presents I did get was from Nick and was waiting for me when we got home after 5 days away. I walked into the flat and got super confused by the empty Guinea pig cage - apparently Paddy had asked for some new friends so my empty cage was just the start and yesterday we went and chose 2 new little fellas to join the family! 


I was back in the gym this morning and now have to return back to normal life and back to reality after the madness of this week. It's been an amazing week and I definitely don't want it to end.

Thank you to anyone who wished me good luck or happy birthday and here's to the restart of my blog and getting back to grips with posting more regularly ;)
