That Friday Feeling!!!

It’s Friday, It’s Friday, It’s Friday! It’s Friday!! IT”S FRIDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sorry was that a little over the top? I am just experiencing a heavy dose of that Friday feeling today, it seems as if it has taken forever to come around and with all my dramas I am glad to be saying goodbye to this working week that’s for sure… I’m also excited because I have another weekend out of London planned, with another of my crazy Scottish friends… add to that already lethal mix the bottle of posh plonk my boss kindly gifted me with, some Thorntons mini chocolate…

Topsy Turvy Thursday…

Its been a funny old week this week… this morning I woke with a renewed optimism… it was Thursday after all and ever closer to the weekend so I had to feel good about that! Then I arrived in work only to find a bottle of champagne sitting pretty on my desk!… before you say it – no, unfortunately it was not a valentines gift from ginger boy sent all the way from oz… no in fact it was a gift from my boss after I secured a two page spread in this weekend’s FT… boo ya!! I guess my…

Wine head on a Wed Morning? No No No…

The problem with going out drinking mid week is that you wake up the next morning inevitably feeling like it should be the weekend, convinced that after your one too many glasses of wine the night before you are due a long lie and day of self pity. It is one thing to wake up and realise that it’s actually only a Friday and you have to go to work… but it is quite another completely to wake up and realise it’s only a bloody Wednesday and there are still 3 full working days ahead before the weekend! This was…

Fragile person aboard…Please be kind

Oh Tuesday… cmon now you were supposed to be kind to me…

Granted this morning was spent mostly updating twitter and facebook and I was happy to be back in my reclining chair… not having to spend my time touring about the west end again!

I also found it hard not to bring a smile to my face with the news that Dannii Minogue is to front the new M&S campaign along with Twiggy and Lisa Snowdon… I am a bit of a fan of the Minogue family, I mean Kylie doesn’t require any introduction… any woman over 35…

Back Track Slightly…

Oh my! With all my bitching about Monday, I forgot to tell you about those two days that precede Monday, in which we are freely allowed to do whatever the hell we please…

So I was sans tinterweb all weekend, hence the 2 posts today… I was out of London for the duration staying with a friend and apparently not everyone blogs, tweets and facebooks all day everyday? Hmm well I work in the media industry right so it’s kind of allowed… I think??

Anyway one of the good things about ginger boy being away for 3 weeks is that…

Monday Blues…

Another weekend a distant memory… another Monday morning to contend with… arrg! why are Monday’s so damn depressing just by default? sometimes I feel rather sorry for Monday… nobody likes a Monday… Fridays? oh they have plenty of friends but mondays? nada!

Well Monday I’d just like to point out that you might make a friend in me if you stopped being such a droal and depressing day, if you stopped ruining my Sunday evening by making me think of you, if you didn’t purposely drag on and seem longer than Friday, Saturday and Sunday put together and well basically…

Valentines Part 2… Ruining his Reputation

Bumpkin Betty is without a Valentine… again

You may remember me posting a few days ago about my recent change of heart (excuse the pun) when it came to Valentines this month… for once I was actually excited due to the fact that this year I have crossed over to the dark side and become one half of a couple…

Well it seems my excitement was a little pre – mature… oh no don’t worry he (for the purpose of this blog I will refer to him only as ginger boy) hasn’t dumped me, well not yet…

Girl Crushes and Design Dilemma’s

So with yesterday’s announcement that Emma Watson is to design for People Tree and today’s confirmation that Alexa Chung is creating a range for Wellmade… I got to thinking about this recent trend for Celebrity ‘Designers’…

Personally I think it’s rather cheeky when celebs take the label ‘Fashion Icon’ and run with it when the reality is they have an army of stylists taking charge of their every move AND they get given freebies left, right and centre from all the best design houses. It doesn’t require much fashion knowledge or flair to put on a Chanel…

Are you Copying Me?

It’s not very often that I find myself feeling smug… well apart from when I go back to my country roots wearing a fashionable little London find and am considered some form of alien breed…but that’s beside the point…

Anyway over the last few days I have been feeling extremely smug about one particular thing… and that’s my fantastic, cosy, furry, padded and oh so precious Woolrich Parka! Why? Because let me tell you – I have been sporting my Parka to rival all Parkas for the entire winter and while yes I may not be the…

Valentines Part 1… Ruining my Reputation

It’s the 1st of February today… and it’s this time of year when everything turns to pink and red and flowers and cards and cute cuddly nonsense… valentines of course!
Now don’t get me wrong under normal circumstances I am as anti valentines as they come… the idea of being given a cheesy ‘I love you’ teddy makes me cringe, I give couples the death stare when they won’t let go of each others hands for long enough to let me pass them on a narrow street and it annoys me senseless when my weekend plans are thwarted…

Aah! First post!

Hello,

Bumpkin Betty here, welcoming you to my brand spanking new blog! Thanks for dropping by…
So I had a little mini panic about what my first post should be like? should I introduce myself? should I welcome you to Bettyland and tell you everything you need to know about me? or should I just launch straight in with whats occuring right now?
In the end I realised that if I spent a bit of time describing said mini panic, this would probably end up filling out my first post and avoid the need for an actual…
