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!

i belong with you, you belong with me, you're my sweetheart.

today i went on a little trip to the V&A with my uni chums, we went to the david bowie exhibition (it was sooooo good!) 
we wandered round the fashion section first and loled at floating bra's and looked at all the pretty things.
and then (probably the best decision of the day) we went to the breakfast club, after getting lost for about twenty minutes whilst being hungry and hot we finally arrived and pretty much didn't talk till we finished eating!
i would have an outfit post but i haven't been sleeping very well for the last week and no one wants my tired face all up in here so here a couple of shots jenny took of me for one of our photography projects.
love livvy
p.s. if i haven't banged on about this enough i am shortlisted for the company blog awards in 'best use of photography' so if you fancy it would be lush if you could vote for me!

3. some new beauty bits, i got rimmel appcalips in luna (which looks like this on) and a mascara that i've only ever heard good things about (plus it was on offer)

4. fizzy laces to get me through my deadlines...ahem...

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.

love livvy

fancy being a beb (french accent there kids) you can still vote for me as 'best use of photography' in the company blog awards (i'll shut up about it soon, pwomise)
