The Five WOWs; #2

I can’t wait to try this super awesome photo lantern DIY from Photojojo. I absolutely love everything that Photojojo do and just to top off how seriously amazing they are, when I received a recent order from their online store I found a teeny dinosaur had sneaked his way into my parcel! <3

I have a love/hate relationship with eBay, but after looking around for some decent summer clothes and not really finding anything that stood out I decided to update my summer wardrobe from eBay instead. I found some great pieces for next to nothing including the brogues and nautical striped dress instagrammed above, as well as a beautiful floral and lace dress for under £3 that I’m looking forward to outfit posting :) Who says you have to spend a fortune to look great and keep cool? ;)

During the whole organising process I was just getting more and more irritated by the adverts from companies not even remotely related to the Olympics using it as their main ad campaign. I was horrified at the thought of going down to London during the madness, not being able to get a place to stay in the capital for less than £300 and quite frankly I just couldn’t give less of a crap. Fast forward to last night when myself and Boyfriend watched our medals roll in which resulted in us jumping up and down, screaming at the tele and hugging. I had no idea the Olympics were going to be this awesome. We won 6 Gold medals and 1 Silver medal yesterday and the best part was the reaction of the athletes and their interviews and seeing their excitement roll out into their Twitter account bios etc. They’re so damn polite and humble. I just love being British and being surrounded by that.

This super cool photograph I took of the inside of my Cider bottle. I always wondered what the point of Instagram was in a sea of social networks, but since I got an account it has really helped me to photo diary images I would never have taken before.

I’m really excited that Boyfriend’s band, Minaret, have released their first album for free download. You can also stream the album from their website. My favourite track is ‘Another Place’ which is one of those songs that you didn’t realise was the one thing missing from your life, until you hear it. I love that feeling! I’m so pleased these guys have finally got their music out into the world as they are so bloody good at what they do, despite struggling to get together while living spread across three cities. Come along and see them play at The Brickyard, Carlisle on August 31st.

To Bestill My Aching Heart

Sunday evening and I am making gift tags while Boyfriend is creating and recording music. This is how I dreamed my life would be for so many years. Doggy isn’t quite asleep by the fire, it’s not raining hard on the attic roof. It’s the middle of summer and doggy is asleep on the sofa so it will do ;) Ah, how dreams can turn into reality.

The sounds coming out of Boyfriend’s guitar are really stunning. They make me twist and ache inside, as if the sound is one that I have been desperate to hear all my life, without ever actually knowing it.

Right now he is picking and finding his way around the notes again as the piece in question has been lying dormant for some time. Part of the ache I feel is the desperate need to hear this song live, amongst hundreds of like minded fans who all feel the same twists and desperation in their heart.

If only he can keep believing in himself long enough to realise the beauty in what he creates — Oh, hold me. Now it’s bellowing through the amp… to realise the beauty in what he creates, to play the live shows so I can be there in the front, feeling the passion of it all wash over me. To bestill my aching heart.
