Blackpool rocks...

Went to the coast with hubby and friends yesterday.
It was a kind of wedding anniversary day out.
We all had a wonderful time and walked along the whole length of the beach.
We stopped off on each pier and went in a few arcades to have a go of the slot machines and had fish and chips for tea.
We finished the day by driving through the lights and heading home at around 10.30pm.
I took my Pentax with me and managed to snap some really good pics.
Some of them look almost as if we were abroad in the med!

Thanks for reading.

Flickr flicker

I have Flickr,
As you may know from some of my recent posts i love taking pictures and am building up my portfolio but im not getting many views for some reason.
Many of my pics have been uploaded on youtube and here but there are lots of new ones.
If you have a spare moment nip on there and please leave me some feedback.

Im a budding photographer and i need to know what people think of my work to help me grow.
(oh and the little blurry flashes on the picture below is called Bokeh which is quite hard to capture...yay me)

Here's the link to me on there...

Fancy a spa?

I want to wind down and relax at a luxurious spa...

I want to sip cooled ice water and look out to azure skies...

I want to stop daydreaming and make this a reality...
So i searched on "Mr Google" for local spa's in my area and pondered over the delicious pictures.
My piggy bank doesnt have enough pennies for a Spa break so the pictures will have to do, and for those that want to turn your own abode into a spa then have a look at the shop links on my luuux page for this post here

"Mr Google" told me to check these pretties out...
Thanks for reading

Down time

Hello lovelies,

I have 2 whole weeks ahead of me on annual leave from work. Thats 14 days all to myself. Bliss.

Hubby and i work at the same place and we booked the time off together so we could go on holiday for our 1 year wedding anniversary. Sadly we haven't saved up enough pennies so we will be staying in England.
Weve got days out here and there planned and a few catch up's with our families. I will be taking my camera everywhere to capture lots of pictures.

Ive also got a shopping trip planned for the 15th (payday aka yayday) and i will most likey be going to either the Trafford Centre or Manchester city centre. I will do a nice little vlog/blog on the pretties i buy.
This week i have mostly done this:

I have both the books on the go at the moment and am alternating between the two (when Silence gets a bit gruesome i swap back to Coco).
Thanks for reading and see you soon with a lovley haul blog/vlog.

Cherry Blossom girl

Spent a few hours just browsing Mr Internet and i was just looking on Flickr and this image below has inspired me to do something similar.
My collection of Instyle magazines have been hidden away under my bed. Now i can have them as a decoration piece and also grab them for when i need a little read of something luxe.

Manchester: Airport and Art

Phew, what a week.

Ive just had a full week back at work doing my full time hours and i can honestly say im mentally "pooped".
I had to visit an occupational Therapist for a work review yesterday.
Their offices' are all the way over at Manchester Airport. To get there i had to go by train so i thought i would take my camera with me.
I took a few "arty" snaps of Manchester from the train window, you can see them below, Ive been trying to capture the perfect image to upload onto Flikr.
I didnt take any pictures at the airport. Me thinks that would have been too "planespotter". My attention was also caught by a huge billboard at Bolton train station with Uma Thruman looking stunning.
If you want to see the video for the advert then click this link. If you havent seent he english version, the tag line is "without Heart we would be mere machines" or something along those lines.

Giulietta is most becoming...

The weather was really warm yesterday at the Airport and it made me think of holidays and being lucky enough to be flying abroad somewhere sunny.
Hubby and i are making plans for a nice holiday next August. We are going to save up for a whole year to have the kind of trip where we have no worries about splashing out on fun things to do.
Thats going to be motivation for me to lose a few stones and increase the exercise.

Its Saturday today and i have the flat to myself as hubby has gone meeting a few pals to do some script writing. (If anyone is interested in watching him in a short film that the production company he helps with did, then check out this link . Hubby is the one who answers the phone.....)

Ive been taking some close ups of shiny things too, to improve my technique.
Below are a few shots.
Im going to be catching up on some blogs and watching a few youtube vids.
I love lazy Saturdays. What about you?
Thanks for reading.
