York, North Yorkshire; Winter Wonderland.

Don’t you just love Christmas?! .. This week has been thee most Christmasy week. Sunday night involved Sam and myself going to York to see the Coca Cola Lorry from the famous advert!
.. I was amazing, it really helped put me in the chirstmas spirit! .. You’ll also be happy to know I purchased my first Christmas present yesterday! WHOOP!
After quite a busy morning at work, I intend to spend my afternoon trawling round the many grotto’s of Meadowhall, Sheffield, in the hope that I can find some much needed presents for the loved ones.
Oh, and I’m overly excited for this weekend. Beck is entering into a Winter Wonderland. Sam and myself are going to visit the Capital (being London) for a spot of Iceskating! Somerset House does an annual Ice Rink, we booked tickets for the event months ago (Tickets costing around £17/18pp) and it seems to have come round so fast! .. Were also going to the Ice Bar in London (again, costing a simalar amount) whereby everything is made from ice, upon entrance you are provided with a thermal coat and are able to choose from a selection of drinks. The event last’s 40 minutes so as you can imagane, I’m very excitable about this.

Norris the Nikon shall be coming with me to London so expect photos upon my return! Hope everyones having a productive week!

Oh, I almost forgot, Danbo’s been behaving this week, so if he continues to behave up until departure then he can come with. :)

Photography; Danbo’s had a busy week

eee I’m sorry it’s been awhile since I’ve posted guys! Danbo’s proving to be quite a handful.. so much so that I’ve had my hands full this past month! .. Firstly IVE GRADUATED. Pictures to follow. Me and Danbo have, however, been making a little picture diary of what were been upto to share with you. He’s quite the little poser, you have been warned.


The 15th of November was a good day for me and Danbo, we went to London to buy shoes for my Graduation from York St John University. A long day trailing round the shops tired my little man out! However he did discover enough energy to have a play around in my new shoes! haaa!


Whoop! On Thursday the 17th of November I graduated! .. as much as it should of been a day about me little Danbo got jealous, I supplied him with his own cap and a party popper which soon cheered him up! how lovely he looked beaming with pride hahaa! Such an amazing day!


Me and Danbo fell out of the 18th, I warned him not to over do it with the alcohol but, as always, he didn’t listen! .. he ended up drunk on Vodka and Bucks Fizz.


Awww! Sam bought me some flowers to say well done! beautiful flowers they were too! Bright pinks and purples, Danbo decided to model with them, so i photographed :)


Danbo loves the new Marks and Spencer advert with the XFactor contestants in, he skips around singing ‘when you wish upon a star’, he’s also a great fan of making wishes upon 11:11. Sometimes he even drags me outside to see if we can see any shooting stars!


Ot-oooh .. all this partying has worn Danbo out! he’s not been feeling to well recently! So I made him drink some ikky medicine to see if he could fight off his cold! Fingers crossed for Danbo!


The cold has arrived! .. Danbo is bed bound! No more partying for this little boy!.. I’ve took his toys off him and told him he’s not aloud to move! Rest is on the cards!


Danbo’s been feeling a little better! So as a treat for being good me and Sam took him to the Cinema to see In Time. We made a drastic error! .. ‘In Time showing in Screen 5; .. We, however, sat ourselves in screen 4. Epic fail considering we had to sit through 2 and whatever hours of that dreadful film Twilight, Breaking Dawn Part 1. I think I speak for all three of us when I say ‘Never Again’ .. it has to be the worst film ever. Fact.

Danbo has quite a busy month coming up! .. Ice Skating in London with myself and Sam, Advent Calender opening and Christmas! I look forward to snapping all his cheeky moments! 😀

Festivities; present idea’s for the guy who has everything

For the person who has everything for christmas, why not get them something thoughtful, personal and unique. ShanaLogic (an American based company) stocks a collection of weird and wonderful gifts perfect for those looking to original ideas this christmas!

One of my personal favourite finds being that of the Mouse Headphones with the description reading ‘You’ll be the coolest (and by far the cutest!) kid on the block rockin’ these hand-crocheted mouse-ear headphones! Each headphone has been crocheted with love using grey and hot pink yarn … Just put these cuties on, plug in the tunes and you’re ready to go!’

Another unique gift found is the Northern Lights ring described by ShanaLogic as ‘You’ll love this ring featuring a beautiful mix of a color changing mist and a deep black and silver shimmer. The effect is like the Northern Lights! This hand-painted piece shifts gorgeously in the light and we guarantee compliments – it’s just magical’

 Or, I suppose you could always go one better with iwantoneofthose.com and Name a Star. This gift allows you to ‘Name a star after a loved one with the Intergalactic Star Database and show them just what a star they are to you! Gazing up at a blanket of stars is one of life’s great pleasures. Whether you’re a casual stargazer, spend the whole night attached to your telescope, or simply want to make your mark in the heavens, why not name your very own star?’ I must admit this is a personl fave of mine, something different and unique!

 I’m already laughing before I’ve even posted my next great find. Become a Chav.Do you have friends that are secret chavs? Well you can ignite their true chavness with this complete Chav Pack. This Pack will be all you need to get you on your way to become a true Chav. It will guide, support and school you in all features Chav. Once schooled in the world of the Chav and dressed Chav-ly? you will fit in with any Chav crowd (hopefully without them smelling a faux Chav in the area!)’ I have to admit, I think it’s just because the pack reads ‘Personalised ASBO registation card – recieve ASBO of your choice’ .. For my birthday in January, 2 friends bought me ‘Become a Lady’ and I must say, it is up there in the list of the greatest present I have ever recieved!

Websites like these always have great gifts to choose from for something different this christmas! .. Also try  Urban Outfitters, Not on the Highstreet, Buy a Gift and for something totally different Virgin Experiences.

Note to Bonxy, don’t think of cheating and getting my anything off this list 😛 #justsaying.
