Take10 x Braun...

floral-spring-outfit-leatheSpring has arrived, well at least for a week it did and I took full advantage and let my pasty white legs see the light of day! This was in fact this months take 10 challenge! We teamed up with Braun to test out their new Silk-epil epilators, which I must say I was little dubious of at first! But turns out they are no where as painful as I thought it would be. Being able to use it in the shower is a massive plus for cutting down on time getting ready when all I want is to be out in the sun!

Apparently it was a popular area for little pubs back when our parents were at university, but now its mainly full of swanky new office blocks. But the odd piece of history still remains like this old boarded up bar.

Spying on your pets...

pet-cameraI had a whole host of blog posts to go live this week including my New York travel guide. Alas my laptop had other ideas in mind and crashed and burned leaving with nothing to blog from! Dave has managed to resurrect it for the mean time but I have a feeling its reached its 3/4 year old mark and just doesnt want to function anymore!
A few weeks ago Motorola contacted me to see if I would like to test out their Pet Video Camera in association with the RSPCA. The camera looks like a swanky web cam, you set it up with an app on your phone (any phone is compatible) and then you can spy on your pets while you are away at work!
The quality is really good, it has a tilt & zoom mode, room temp display and two way communication!! So if your dog is whimpering you can soothe them with your voice over the web cam! How cool is that? Ive always wondered what our dogs get up to when Im not around and now I can put my curiosity to rest!

Red hair & rosey cheeks...

lifestyle-blogger-ukYay! Its starting to finally look like summer outside. The sun is shining and the days are getting longer, the temperatures still havent risen above 14 degrees but hey we are getting there! Dave & I have been using the good weather as a great reason to get out on our bikes more. Mine an old fashioned heavy bike is always lagging behind his ultra light road bike but its so much fun to just get out together and explore new areas of the countryside!

spring-pastels-outfit lookbook-magpie-girl-blog red-hair-fashion-bloggerWhile I havent been brave enough to go for bare legs yet, (although im dying too, anyone else sick of tights!?) bare ankles in my cropped grey trousers seems like a step in the right direction!

Thank you for all the sweet comments and support on my last post, I cant believe how many people have had similar disasters when trying to buy a home! It clearly wasn't meant to be and our right house is hopefully just around the corner!
