Turning A New Leaf.

DIY - Champagne Jewellery Storage

Okay wow, it has been a long time to say the least since I last posted anything on this little blog and I have truly missed it. My life, since last being active on here, has changed quite a bit and has changed me as a person. Looking back through the old posts on here, I feel nostalgic and rather proud of what I had achieved  even when I was busy with school work. But now it is about time some life was breathed back into this blog!

I have a new aim now and a new found desire for fashion blogging that I am just itching to share with the blogging community. I hope my old readers will rejoin me and new readers will embrace me because I don't want to do this alone! Let me know what you think, talk to me, share with me. In the last few days I have been taking pictures, throwing some ideas around and posting to Instagram (octoberfourth). I even posted a handy little DIY tip for jewellery storage (pictured above) and there are more posts like that to come.

But one of the first things on my agenda before being able to truly rejoin the blogspot community is doing a redesign of this blog, including it's name and URL. Now, as anyone who creates blogs on any of the blogging platforms available (blogspot, tumblr, wordpress ect) will know, it is extremely difficult to find a URL that isn't already taken unless you add lots of numbers or something like that, which I hate doing because it looks ugly and doesn't make the URL particularly memorable. The simpler the name the better in my opinion and it's always better to have a name that is of personal significance to you.

I have come up with many many words and combinations that I could use whilst still retaining personal significance but no matter what - they're already taken and 99.99% of the blogs seem to have been inactive for at least 2 - 3 years, gutted. The one URL I really want with all my heart is taken and the blog was last used in 2004! Insane. I have sent the blog owner a little plea through a comment on his one and only post on the blog and all I can do now is hope for the best. In the meantime, I have settled for the new name and URL of 'Two Little Sugars' (ideally I want just Two Sugars, fingers and toes crossed guys!)

Next on my list... possibly a new layout/theme.

All the best!

Shoes II

More shoes! 
I have too many shoes and no where to put them unfortunately and I'm sure I am not the only girl with this problem. Going to have to save up for a decent shoe storage unit.

NUDE HEELS are my thing at the moment :)
I have a fabulous pair of nude heels from Dorothy Perkins, £32.

Incredible Internet!

Yes, yes! I have internet! INTERNET! >____< Today would be the third day that I have had internet at my own place. If I wasn't so ill I think I would have blown a fuse from my excitement. As it happens, my face resembled zero of the amount of excitable emotion that I actually felt, much like someone who is angry and has just had botox, haha. But I was really happy <3

I am making plans (like the savvy student that I am) for the blog, with some check-lists, a picture here, a picture there, some coffee... doesn't sound too convincing at this stage but I am juggling my health and university at the same time; I always seem to be ill at the moment and it's slowing me down a lot.

I mentioned in my last post about doing beauty posts in the near future. I'm not sure how I am going to approach this exactly as I have never written about this topic before and I don't claim to know a great deal about it; and due to my eczema I haven't really been able to experiment with skin care products. Recently however, I decided that what I should probably do is research the ingredients of skin care products more. I feel that if I get to grips on what the ingredients are supposed to do for you I would be able to give better advice/judgement. Plus, I have always been more interested in the scientific side if you will, when it comes to skin care, rather than just being lured in by delicious advertisements with hot young models who have obviously been airbrushed!

Have a great week! :) xxx

Dear Sarah...

HELLO, Hello, hello! Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! I have been and will probably continue to be absent on Blogger, much to my dismay believe me, for some months to come =(

Cut a long story short - I got into to university! (woo!) Finding a place to live was a total nightmare, no places in the halls were left. I eventually found a house for my boyfriend, 2 new friends and my myself to live in for the at least 12 months. Bad bad bad news is... no internet in the house. @*#! Not until March at least for now.

So anyway, I'm sitting at my laptop one evening totally bored, my Google Chrome icon pleading to be clicked, and I decide that I should re-vamp my blog. When I can of course. New name, new background, new posting ideas... more shiny new things that I have yet to discover!

The low-down:
New name: Dear Sarah...
New URL!: www.dearlydenoted.blogspot.com
New Background: already in use!
New Posts: Yet to come (Beauty/Make-up for example? =P)

This is me... resting my chin on the precipice of no internet insanity.

Pssstt... Anyone on Tumblr? I started one a while ago and it's proven to be a quick an easy photographic outlet for me. Follow me! Denoted.tumblr.com

Peace out everyone! Hope you're all okay :)
