you know i can soothe your pain.

yesterday i was a very lucky blogger and attended the pinterest #pinitforward party which was really fun!
when i arrived i was pretty terrified because i didn't know anyone who was going and i've only ever been to one event.
 once it got in i met some blogging babes; steph, emma and charlotte and had fun talking about food, weddings and blogging as well as lots of laughter with them. steph and i went into the video booth and proceeded to talk more about food! 
there was lots of lovely food and cocktails being offered all throughout the evening (totally regret having dinner before) 
we also decorated cake pops (so so yummy) and shot glasses, my moustache is slightly wonkily drawn on...
thank you so much for having me pinterest i had a wonderful time!

how lush was the weather in laaaandan today!?
although the wind was not my friend in the hair department as you can see...
despite being pretty bruised at battered after falling down some stairs on thursday (my left leg is a mess) this weekend has been so so lovely.
jay and i went out for dinner last night for an early anniversary meal (two years next sunday eek!) we went to jamies italian at westfield stratford and i highly recommend the early grey martinis, ahhhmaaazzziinnggg!
today we fully embraced the sunshine today with a big bowl of fruit for breakfast on the balcony, a walk in victoria park, a glass of pimms (first one of the year in that pub apparently!) ice cream and emergency sandal buying!

p.s. in love with this nail varnish combo and the smell of this candle

top: new look
skirt: internationale
boots: ebay

as you can tell from the gazillion photographs i have just bombarded your eyes with that i have been on a petie trip to paris (ite i'll stop with the french now) i left on tuesday and got back this afternoon.
a family newman trip is never complete without staying with some sort of friends and relatives so we stayed in our friends beautiful eighteenth century flat, as well as our friends we were welcomed by their dog calcium (best dog name evz) if you look carefully at the picture of him you can see he sports a fine moustache (you can also twist his hair into a unicorn horn...)
as a fam' we have visited paris a few times before we didn't do the usual touristy business (well the eiffel tower has to be done...) well things that were a little less touristy.
we went to chateau de vincennes for some history fun and made friends with the castle cat, standard. 
we still manage to have some shenanigans on the metro but between papa n's and my linguist skills we didn't go the wrong way...too much..ahem.
i also managed to slip in a cheeky trip to laduree, and that my friends is something that needs to be experienced.
so after a few jam packed (well nutella) days i am glad to be back in my bed, it is a little lonely though as jay has left me for a fossil geeks field trip (i didn't have to share my macaroons thought muhaha) so i'm going to curl up with my french magazines and my macaroon baby.

what you know about rockin' a wolf on your noggin.

happy easter chums!
my easter consisted of having two roasts in one day (jay and i rolled into the car from one to the other) and lots of laughs with family.
i've been at work today, someone brought in a twelve week old sausage dog ohhhhmmaaagaawwd it was the cutest thing i have ever seen!
i'm off to paris tomorrow with the fam' (if our tickets actually decide to download) i really need to pack!
and yes i've just eaten all of my easter egg, i know you have too.
don't forget you can vote for my blog as 'best use of photography' in the company blog awards. 
love livvy 
p.s. i had very chilly shoot with gabs this week, here's a cheeky peak. 

when i need you make everything stop

last night me and my favourite hampton of the south gals went for a little ellen/livs birthday/bye bye pontin (the fringy one) dinner at bella italia. 
pontin is leaving us for the big wide world of work for a year and it won't be the same without her borat voices, inappropriate dancing and comments and general lusting over everyone else's dinner, but i'm so proud of her for being such a clever little sausage!
after craving a burger for what feels like forever and sharing a hugggeeeee sundae with pryme i pretty much rolled how but it was still lovely and light outside so the walk home was pretty as the parks round here are lush apart from when you're being harassed by tramps but thats another story for another day.
also don't clazones look a little bit like big leaky pastries, just (not the nicest of descriptions i know)
jacket: ebay (i know i don't even have to tell you that now)
top and bangle: primark
jeans: topshop
loafers: clarks
bag: cambridge satchel company

my topshop jean collection has doubled (as in now i own two pairs instead of one) i decided after going into toppers westfield to get a bikini (which isn't in two of their stores, sort it out yeah toppers) that i would bite the bullet and get some joni's, i tired them on and it was luuuurve, i'm also enjoying being able to control how much ankle i show (ohh such a victorian minx in my jamies flashing my ankles all over the show)
i'm sure you've seen this top in primarni and if you have tried it on found the bloody odd the fitting is, i got a twelve as the eight was incredibly low and baggy on the boobs but tight under the arms, i mean really how will that ever fit anyone i'm not even that blessed in the boob dept. so being the little crafter i am i got a bigger one and shortened the straps...not really a hard task but you know points for being efficient and stuff...
i did still accidentally flashed a few people because it was windy but i'm sure nobody was scarred for life (at least i hope not...apologies if you were..)
anyway to sum up primark sort your fitting out because its drunk and need to go home. topshop snaps to you for making wonderful jeans but please sort your bikini stocks out in stores, i mean i expected it of so'ton but westfield really could up their game on that.
right ramble over
liv over and out....that was a bit lame...i'll just stick to what i know..
love livvy
p.s. anyone interested in fashion who lives in the southampton area might want to check out southampton fashion week, sadly i won't be able to go as i will be at home celebrating my birthday but it does look rather good!
