Faith Dates: Keen Kevin

tumblr_n24hnr8Qzk1rufg6eo4_1280 One October night during freshers’ week, there was an American ‘frat’ themed party at a local student indie night. In an excited and quite possibly delusional state, I assumed this meant fancy dress and turned my room upside searching for the cheerleader uniform I’d been waiting to wear for the past 2 years. Got to the club…it wasn’t fancy dress – nobody was dressed up, not even the freshers. Profanities spilled from my mouth like word vomit as I waited 15 minutes for a vodka & coke as my lovely flatmates put stickers in my hair – obviously I didn’t notice/didn’t care until I caught the eye of a tall blonde guy across the bar. He walked over and said “Can I sing you a song?”, I reluctantly agreed as he sang: “That girl with 5 stickers in her hair” to me and ripped them from my high pony tail.

Half an hour later I had stacked it on the dance floor, cried, then cried more because my mascara had gone in my eyes and I was now “BLIND”. After my recovery Keen Kevin (he wasn’t actually called Kevin), came over again (he didn’t see me stack it) for a chat where he charmed me with his Game of Thrones knowledge and we exchanged numbers. I’d be lying if I wasn’t very smug about this as Kevin as we say in England was “WELL FIT”.

The next day we chatted via text and he invited me to a house party, I declined because well I’d only just met him and we know what happens at house parties don’t we? During general chit-chat he divulged to me that he is a vegetarian and bragged that he used to be a vegan. Now I know a lot of you may see this as a serious plus but I’m really not into the whole ‘preachy vegetarian’ thing which he really, really was and kind of wanted to end things right there. After much discussion with my panel of dating experts (the galz), they said it’s probably not an okay thing to bin someone off for so I continued talking to Kevin despite his dietary requirements. The next day I thought “fuck it”, and agreed to go on a date with Keen Kevin, we had drinks near the harbour whilst he talked about himself/the environment at length and turned everything into a philosophical quote whilst I tried to stay conscious. tumblr_ndbw80dzSO1qfhl14o1_500 There was no spark there, not even a flicker in my opinion but Keen Kevin didn’t seem to take the hint and proceeded to annoy me for the following 3/4 days. Trying to meet up everyday to which I made up a half arse excuse like “I’m making a pasta bake then ringing Hollie”. Still he didn’t get it. To the point where he actually invited himself round – this was the final straw. image1 image2

SERIOUSLY DUDE, GIVE IT A REST!?!

Yeah, there’s no real moral here but I thought you might enjoy my first ‘dating dating’ experience, which I’m not that fussed about doing again anytime soon.

ASOS Sale Haul

So, this year saying the January sales have been disappointing would be a massive understatement and I was left feeling slightly down about my lack of bargains – that is until I found the ASOS sale! Over 70% off on literally thousands of items, I could’ve kitted myself out for the next two years, no problem!

So at a grand total of £37 these are what I purchased…

asos

The most expensive of my purchases was this gorgeous cobalt scarf-print dress for about £27, from ASOS it’s self. It’s one of those dresses you can wear any season and to any occasion so I consider this a cheap investment rather than a drain on my bank balance 😉

Next up is this bargain at about £7.50, it looks ridiculously good on- I was actually quite shocked! In fact I may well order the blue version of it before it’s out of stock – (if it’s not already).

Last but not least this tee by Jacqueline De Yong, there are 2 things I justified this buy with…

  1. It was £3.50 … no I’m not high, it really was £3.50!
  2. ‘H’ is my 2nd initial so..
  3. Ok there’s 3 reasons, I just really wanted it okay – quit it with the 3rd degree man

Also you may be wondering why my walls are manky and unpainted/wallpapered – no I don’t live in a crack den, my wall had damp so my parents started drying it out whilst I was at uni!

Bridget Jones: Mad About the Boy

“Thirty-five is the perfect age for a woman, so much so that many women have decided to adopt it for the rest of their lives”

This year a much loved national treasure returns to our bookshelves in the form of a scatty, clumsy and potty-mouthed Bridget Jones. From author, Helen Fielding’s previous installments you might be expecting another hopelessly brilliant rom-com about Bridget’s longing for Mr Mark Darcy but unfortunately this edition has a darker twist.

Written in the present day, Bridget is now a 50 year old mother of two, struggling with balancing her work and social life as well as the children’s school runs in classic Jones style. Things many of us can certainly identify with, but unfortunately her issues with using Twitter are the least of her problems as she mourns the loss of her beloved husband Mark, who died four years ago in a tragic accident. Many were shocked when it became public knowledge that Fielding had killed off a much loved heart-throb, but I feel it allows Bridget to have a much greater depth than her somewhat ditsy appearance permits.

mark-darcy-bridget-jones

The novel gives Bridget’s personal reflections in diary form as she reluctantly tries to start dating again to move on with life after Mark, whose memory haunts her in every decision she makes. It basically forms the structure for an anti-self-help book on dating as Jones makes every mistake possible in the new-age of modern dating; from drunken texting to online dating- she hopelessly tries it all in her own hilarious way.

After many years of patient waiting Jones’s fans were treated to one final chapter of the domestic chaos and calamity after the films that made her famous, this edition does not disappoint as young Bridget has grown older and wiser with her readers who are now facing their own mid-life crises.  Perhaps not to the same extent as Bridget’s issues with head lice infestations and stomach-bug epidemics but if anything her rather messy life brings a certain degree of reassurance to the rest of us, that just because the living room hasn’t been cleaned for a while and we’ve become slightly more reliant on ready meals recently doesn’t mean that we hopeless/lazy people! It simply means we are busy, successful women with more on our minds than dusting round the plasma screen television.

A laugh-out-loud read you’ll really struggle to put down in a hurry.

ALSO, if you’re really into reading then you should definitely consider having a look at my best friend Hollie’s blog
