Random Saturdayness

It’s finally feeling a lot more like summer (i.e. it’s not raining and a degree or two warmer) but there’s definitely an air of late-summer now, don’t you think?

What really helps me to get to sleep at night is watching videos on YouTube on my phone – this one by Lisa Eldridge is amazing, she really knows her stuff when it comes to make-up…

When I’m not watching videos I’m reading. I’m currently half-way through How To Be A Woman by Caitlin Moran on my Kindle at the moment, it’s amazing and I would thoroughly recommend it if you are a woman or know a woman (so… everybody). When I tweeted/facebooked about this book I got quite a few comments saying ‘is that you on the cover’? I take this as a huge compliment! (And no, it’s not. Although I am now toying with the idea of a white streak in my hair because it looks kinda cool – what do you think)?

Oh, I have found a fabulous website called Portroids, do you know it? It’s basically a collection of Polaroid portraits which are then signed straight after they’re taken- there are SO many famous faces there, here are two that caught my eye…

And finally, the ever inspiring Susannah Conway is once more organising the August Break for us all to join in with – hooray! It’s simplicity itself to join in, so please do, the more the merrier! Post one photo a day to the flickr group. That’s it. Easy huh? And there really are no rules so if you can only manage one or two a week, then that’s perfectly fine! It’s a very gentle and pressure-free way of collaborating and sharing (and a good excuse from blogging with words for a month if you so choose). Give it a go, I dare you!
