Sarah Loves... Don Draper

Ever since I first started watching Mad Men I was ultimately always going to fall in love with Don Draper. I mean seriously, who wouldn't?

The journey is the destination

"Remember it's only in the black of night that you can see the stars and those stars will lead you back home. So don't be afraid to make mistakes, to stumble, to fall, because most of the time the greatest rewards come from doing things that scare you the most. Maybe... you'll get everything you wish for; maybe you'll get more than you ever could have imagined. Who knows where life will take you ? The road is long and in the end the journey is the destination"
Whitey Durham from One Tree Hill (Actor Barry Corbin)

Get well soon Dan Carter

Newer post Thursday 22nd September 2011

Dan Carter, the All Blacks rugby star and object of my affections has had surgery on his right ankle this week. He had been having pain in the ankle throughout the year but had been playing through the pain.

My Festival Guide

At the weekend I went to my erm... 5th festival (I think it's 5, my memory is shocking) and it was Spurs boy's first! We went with a big group of friends and met other new friends whilst we were there. A festival bond can last for years and maybe even a lifetime ;-)

Sarah Loves... The X Factor

Yes I can already here you shout "No Sarah" but it's too late.

"My name is Sarah and I love the X Factor".

After a weekend away the first thing I did was watch the football highlights from the weekend and then... Yes... X Factor. :-)

Muddy football boots

Now you all know I love my football, and I'm pretty knowledgeable on the area. I'm a passionate football fan who enjoys banter with rival fans, and have pretty colourful language when watching Manchester United play at times ;-)

Lots more chocolate and goodies

As you all know I'm in the Secret Post Club scheme and got this lovely lot above from this month's sender Neus. Chocolate is an obvious winner for me, every single time. They have all been eaten by me already, mainly at the weekend when I wasn't feeling so well. There was also a tetrapack made purse which is lovely and I've already used it a few times.

Happy now

My earlier post of the day was a bit of a vent post. That's one of the reasons I like to have this blog, it is my blog and I can write about what I want. When I write things here, they are out there for all to see and it works as a catalyst to make me feel better. I've taken action and I feel stronger.

Life can test you...

"Because it´s only when you´re tested that you truly discover who you are. And it´s only when you´re tested that you discover who you can be. The person that you want to be does exist, somewhere in the other side of hard work and faith, and belief and beyond the heartache and fear of what life has"

Mojito for breakfast?

No not that kind of mojito. Although I admit I would be tempted! ;-)

Through a bit of a twitter convo with Deli2Dine4 as the lovely DynaGirl had recommended the Cuban 'Mojito' Breakfast and so I was sent a jar to try :-)

Sarah Loves... going to the Cinema

I always at this time of year go to the cinema at least once a week and always pledge to go more during the rest of the year. This time it will be different. Oh wait, I say that every year too.

How do you cheer yourself up?

I've been a bit under the weather this weekend, although I think I'm feeling better now. I went out with Bestie on Friday night to check out a new bar in town and I had a few drinkies and was prepared for a hangover the next day.

Old notebooks

I did a spot of tidying as I had lost an important book that I needed for work just had the urge to have a spring clean, or should that be summer clean ;-) Anyway, I found one of my old notebooks from last year. As you may have realised I am one for writing lists and as such people think I am very organised. Although friends know this isn't always the case as I can be quite scatty. Which I guess illustrates why I need the lists.

Old Fossil

Spurs boy and I took Little man to the zoo last week and we spent a while browsing in the gift shop and Little man picked up a sticker book about dinosaur fossils. The conversation that followed is pure genius!

Little man : Daddy can I have this book?
Spurs boy: Of course. Fossils are pretty cool you know
Little man: What did you do for a job back then?
Spurs boy: Back when?
Little man: When dinosaurs existed. Did you build them houses too?

I laughed lots. Then I promptly walked up to the till with Little man and paid for the book. Spurs boy didn't speak the whole way home...

Who Do You Think You Are

I've always been a bit into family history stuff. I absolutely love the Who Do You Think You Are TV series and I've always wanted to get into my own family history.

Sarah Loves... Pizza

 I absolutely love pizza. Nom nom nom!

It's one of my best comfort foods and therefore worthy a mention on my blog. It's also provided a great way for me and Little man to get cooking together in the kitchen, we love making our own pizzas.

One Tree Hill Quote - Someone will find you

"Sometimes it's easy to feel like you're the only on in the world who's struggling, who's frustrated, or unsatisfied, or barely getting by. But that feeling's a lie. And if you just hold on, just find the courage to face it all for another day and someone, or something, will find you and make it all okay. Because we all need a little help sometimes. Someone to help us hear the music in our world. To remind us that it won't always be this way. That someone is out there, and that someone will find you"
Lucas Scott (played by Chad Michael Murray) One Tree Hill

Aussie Alert!

Regular readers of my blog will have seen that blog title and assumed I was going to do another blog about some more hot Aussie males. Well I'm glad to have surprised you, I'm not going to. 

Just yet anyway.

No this is about Aussie hair products. I have thick, flyaway curly hair and I cannot live without Aussie's 3 Minute Miracle Frizz Remedy Deep Treatment. It's the only thing I've found that tames my hair and makes me feel I'm not walking around with a great puffball of hair on my head.

Just The Way You Are

I found a tumblr blog the other day which was set up by a girl who had a previous eating disorder and was trying again to lose weight. She was posting pictures of thin models and celebrities with the hashtags #skinny #thin #beautiful. I then carried on searching and found more blogs like this one.

Sarah Loves... Cupcakes

You may have noticed that I love cupcakes; especially if you follow my tumblr blog, you just cannot beat a bit of cupcake picture spamming to make my day brighter :-)

I first started this blog last year to be some kind of cupcake blog, but that soon changed once I was back into working. Now I find I'm always looking for people to either bring me cakes (always a winner, my intern made me cakes last week - she's learning well!) or I'm finding really good cake companies local to me.

They Did It

Over ten years we've been waiting for our friends to get married. This weekend they finally got married!

It was a truly beautiful day, the sunshine came out for the much needed photos and it didn't rain. Friends that we haven't seen for ages made the journey for the weekend and everyone remarked on how well they had done on such a small budget.
