Bernard McMacBook.

I’m back baby! I have finally bought myself a gorgey new MacBook Pro! I’ve wanted one for quite a while now… so the other day I forked out the £1300 for it. Bernard (yes I’ve named him) is a hunk of RAM, bits and other computer stuff I don’t really understand! From now on, my little bloggy-wog will be up-to-date with news, designs and random ramblings – you lucky things you!  

Monday, 30 August 2010


Jeeeez I haven't blogged in FOREVER! Been so busy - BIG update coming very soon and lots of designs to show off too :) There have been a lot of changes happening, yay!

I have a Sailor-themed hen weekend coming up and I cannot wait, nautical is just about my favourite thing in the world! Designs, ideas and outfit piccies will be on asap.

My work is relocating from Glasgow to Cumbernauld tonight/tomorrow so I'm trying to make sure everything's taken care of. Aaaand... the freelance is going good! Working with & with a lovely Laandaan chap called Glenn, and starting work with DJs from Hummingbird in Glasgow - Allan Mackenzie in particular. More details to follow!

New Car, Flo & Flamingos!

I have a gorgey new car, yippeeeeee! He's black, brand new and is called Rufus :) :) :)
I hadn't driven for months, so still getting used to him (i.e. trying not to stall all the time!) But I absolutely love him, he's almost like Kit from Knightrider ha.

On another note - I am GUTTED to be missing Florence tonight. Had to pass my ticket on as I wouldn't have made it through in time to smelly Edinburgh (sorry Edinburgers but c'mon get your traffic sorted!!). Cue me :( but my friend Sof being awfully happy at now going.
I looooove flamingos. That is all xo.

Rain rain go away...

A lovely, rainy, grey day in bonny Scotland. Although saying that I do actually like the rain... just not when my toes are soaked within a minute of my 90min commute to work!
These images are making the rain look quite glamorous don't they? Looooovely :)

Sun's Going Down, Glasgow, Scotland. [(c)Jason Hill]

In the sights of an unsleeping eye. Like looking down into the piping of a long barrelled pistol. I knew I was in trouble once I smelled her skin. Like new summer, fresh cut grass. I waited across the street, but in windows view as she mopped the floors, emptied the cash register and locked the back doors. Its raining out and I cant help but wonder how her skin might smell from the rain. Like a wet dog or like raindrops on a tulip. I tell myself a soaked mutt so I will just move on. No chance though. I'm hooked. A poor fish on a hook, wrong place at the wrong time. I'm stuck. The air around her is too thick to move. I'm cookie dough now, and she's the baker. Normally I might be the drain to her faucett but now I'm clogged, filling up, going to flood over the basin and make it even harder to move. Suddenly she pulls her overshirt off, a tan dress with red and black floral patterns underneath. I pretend she does it for me. Time to go. She's off from work. Should I follow? Her eyes caught mine just once. Did it mean something to her too? What to do. If I wait too long I'll ruin my chance. Can't seem timid. Can't seem desperate. But I feel I am. I know it will consume me. Her eyes watching me while I sleep, when I daydream, in every sound I hear I will hear what I think her voice may be. It's raining harder now, the time smoothed cobble stone streets of Glasgow beneath my feet. She seems to float. She's out the door, a grey wool like coat over that dress. Flat red shoes. She looks hurried. Looks toward me for almost a moment, her eyes too shy to meet mine. Almost a smile, her teeth scratch her naked soft lips. I feel my legs moving toward her, but I'm not. The airs too thick to move. I can hear my heart beating, sounds like a kick drum in a small cramped room. Boom boom, boom boom, boom boom. Can't breath deep. Only short pulls of thick air. Too thick to move and she's gone. J.H

Tuesday Chat.

My thoughts of the day so far:
1. Peaches Geldof & Eli Roth - WTF?? I'm no having that!
2. Heat Magazine - STOP calling Katie Price 'Jordan'. Obviously someone in the office is at it with Andre - otherwise why would there be so much love for him. He's a TWAT!
3. I think I may be a little in love with Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Mwah mwah.
