Birthdays, ahoy!

So it’s been my Birthday this fortnight and I am of course dealing with this aging malarkey really well. My liver, not so much, but it needs to stop moaning. I am fortunate enough to have a group of very close gal pals living here in London from back home (Home being more of an “experience” rather than a “place” –  Stoke – on – Trent.) We love to make any excuse to go for piss-up and my Birthday was a perfect reason to pop a prosecco evening into the social calendar and this time as an extra treat, the Mothership also made an appearance. She drank us under the table. Like Mama, like daughter.

Me and the gals. I appear to have shrunk in this picture. 

 

It really is wonderful to have four people who know me better than anyone and therefore, have all my dirty secrets tucked away in mental files in their wonderfully complex brains under the category “Never reveal to anyone – she has too much dirt on you too” just a mini jaunt away. It’s good for the soul.

I can only hold my model pose for so long.

I share a Birthday week with one of my oldest partners in crime, so naturally, all five of us continued to spend the week celebrating, as of course two birthdays means double the effort is required socially.

This is fun and super fabulous as it happens but afterwards, I am left with the depressing thought that now the party is over, and sadly it’s now time for my annual “Let’s get healthy!” period.  Eugh! This is where I attempt to stop eating pies and drinking larger and try to find my inner fitness gurus (Yes Gurus, they have to tag team as it’s a hard job). Thus far, I have started hula hopping again in front of the TV. It’s all about strengthening your core after all.

Health kick in mind, I suppose it is for the best that Greggs wouldn’t give me a chicken bake for my Birthday, but remember kids, it’s aways worth asking!

 

If you want to enjoy more of my exciting social footprints, please feel free to socially stalk me. I’ve been told more than once that I give good social. I’m inclined to agree.

I’m sure I am not the only one doing health kick, so I have to ask  – do any of you manage to stick it out – if so, how?! Seriously, I wanna know!

Ps. I also have some fabulous news which will be coming in my next post…but safe to say I had the best Birthday gift ever this year! Xx

 

 

 

 

 

Bunnypudding does Digital PR

Super quick update as I have a few long winded posts I will make live in the next week but I just wanted to share a few bits and bobs with you. Some of you may know that I work in digital marketing and digital PR. As it is a bit of a niche subject I go to the trouble of discussing what digital PR actually is over on the Drum website, because I like to teach people and most of all, I adore the sound of my own voice – even if it is just people reading the article in my voice.

I also pop up one of their Vox pop discussions about how much control we should give influencers in our influencer marketing efforts. You know me, always available to give an opinion so I was happy to do it. Delightfully, the amount of messages I’ve received following this article has been fabulous, albeit mostly people asking me what hair dye I use.

I am a natural orange thank you very much.

Let me know your thoughts and questions below BBz as I adore feedback and it makes me feel special and important. If you need more of me in your life – and why the devil not? You can, of course, follow me socially on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram and for more professional endeavours you can follow me here.

Love, Love BP.

 

Bunnypudding does exercise for charity

Hello BBz,

So I have decided that this year I will try to do more charitable things. I found that I had become someone who allowed myself to let “life get in the way” so often that I hadn’t actually done as much positive endeavours in my recent “life” as one would feel necessary. Unsure where to begin I started with the most instant thing I could think of – Sponsoring a little girl via https://plan-uk.org/sponsor-a-child

plan-international-logo

For £20 a month I get to sponsor a little girl called Anma and support her access to heath care and education. It literally took me 10 minutes to sign up and to be honest, I’d almost forgotten I’d done it when I received my welcome pack with a picture of her and information about her life. It was a very odd feeling and I highly recommend doing it if you have a few spare pounds. I received my first letter from her charity worker this week and I am looking forward to sending one back. A very happy letter correspondence indeed….oh there is a History, Ahoy! in that subject I think!

I’ve also made the mistake (big mistake, huge) of being overly confident and agreeing to suffer immensely take part in the Shelter Vertical Rush challenge on 9th March. This is also the day before my Birthday so I am hoping that rather than Birthday presents, I get a few sponsors to compensate for the fact that I am dreading it.

I am certainly going to have to start fundraising as its 4 weeks away, so any creative fundraising ideas are welcomed. I am willing to try anything once! Living in London you really do see homeless first hand and I walk post people sleeping on the street in Central London in tents every day. It breaks my heart that there are still situation like this in the country, but every little helps as you can see below. I just need to get myself down to the gym to exercise, otherwise I can imagine myself being carried up by the rest of my team (sorry in advance peeps!) 16426106_1074813472664199_4473458262739919456_n

Have any of you done anything charity related of late? If so I want to know, especially how you managed to keep going when it training….I am so weak when it comes to going to gym, Sob!

Love, love, always

Travel Ponderings.

Hello my beautiful BBz,

2016 was a fabulous year for me in terms of travel. I made sure to any accept any chance of going abroad whenever the offers arose. Some reasons I even made up myself, such as Girlie holidays, work jolly’s, birthday treats, un-birthday treats, the fact that it was April – you name it, I found an excuse to book a plane ticket (Albeit super cheap ones, which also means I am not the biggest Easy jet or Ryan air fan when it comes to service)

It’s so easy to find excuses to put off booking things, so I settled on a game plan where I would try to make my holidays stretch without interrupting work and conjoin them with weekends and bank holidays as often as I could so I could have optimal time away without too much professional impact. I know lots of us have jobs where things move so fast you don’t want to be taking a fortnight off and coming back to chaos, it’s situations like that which almost feel like the holiday isn’t worth it. I personally, also find it better to have things to look forward in the Months ahead so I keep hyper focused.

This year I managed to visit several destinations, but as I am having photo uploading issues (yes, still) I’ve popped a few Instagram snaps below to give you taste until I get the actual scenic shots on here.

Germany 

strabourg

Strasbourg

Here I am walking into new adventures with my eyes shut as usual. Taken at a local service station on the German/France border. Me and the boy drive so much we have decided to start a blog that reviews them all. I am not even joking. We’ve started a paper list and everything.

munich-lion-dec-2015

Munich 

We went over Christmas and it was one of the most magical experiences of my life. We got to live in a winter wonderland and drink mulled wine and eat meat with crackling constantly. It was the best. The Bavarian’s know how to live man. They really do. I’m rather partial to a pair of lederhosen now as well. Not stop, Oktoberfest. It’s gonna happen people.

France

france

In Rimes in France on Christmas Eve. It was a magical evening in the market. I’d literally just tripped over in excitement as I ran to that giant flower pot. What isn’t pictured is the crowd of french people laughing at me.

 

Spain

In Barcelona with the Squad for our birthdays. Such a fabulous City. Here we found love.  Here we discovered the selfie stick.

Italy

rome

Here I am in Rome. Just minding m own business pulling poses in a public street. What about it?

*not my best angle. I do actually have a chin.

Netherlands

Amsterdam

Me with “Nigel”, who happened to be a giant penis chair in the “Sex museum” in Amsterdam. Safe to say I cropped the picture just in case any of you are at work but check out the full pic on my Instagram. I didn’t learn much but I saw a lot of porn which for a Museum is pretty damn fabulous. Great day out for all ages.

These pictures are from my Instagram my handle being @bunnypuddin if you want to be a good fellow and socially follow me.

 

I managed to pick up some great travel tips so I will make sure to list them in separate posts for each destination.  I am blessed with a partner in crime who loves to feel like a local when he travels so we use public transport and drive when we can, to get the most out of our travel experiences and save money doing it…Which is great for us as we need to fund our vino consumption.

I haven’t got a hit list yet this year but I am really considering Asia as the Boy hasn’t been there yet and my ultimate dream, to see the Northern lights. If anyone knows of any fabulous sites where I can get some deals I would be most thankful.  Also, where are you lot hopping off to? Let me know below as I’d love to get inspired and go somewhere completely unexpected.

Mwah!

Love, love

Oooooooosssshhhh! New Laptop, ahoy!

So *Que official trumpets* I finally have a new laptop. I know, I know. It only took a year but I am very fortunate to have other devices at hand to help me live my life. Anyhow, I’m now sat very content in front of my brand new laptop buddy, ready to go.

I’m brimming full of ideas and creativity. Excited about the literally adventures to come,trembling with anticipation as I am about to brain fart my glorious mind….Well, kind of.

Thus far, I have writers block and can’t figure out how to transfer my iPhone files over. I am not a paranoid person but I sincerely believe that my laptop and iPhone are in cahoots with each other to drive me insane with trying to get me to remember my passwords in order to anything. 

So with that technical struggle in mind, here is the one solitary image I have managed to upload which is from my Instagram (please leave your @’s below so I can follow you)

img_5966

To be fair, it is rather nice tile work. It was found on a pub floor on Charlotte Street. I will pop back and find the name when I am next in work. Not that I work in a pub, I just work near them. Lots of them. And like to take pictures of their floors. Nothing odd about that. Oh nope. Ahem.

You’ve got to appreciate a bit of mosaic tiling, don’t you? It’s one of the things I love about living in a city like London, you are literally walking on history everywhere you go. Another place which I am desperate to show you in a post on here is Pompeii. I have some fabulous photos of my travels around there and some train travel tips which were invaluable, especially when travelling from Rome. I just hope I manage to upload these buggering images so I can share them with you all….fingers crossed! I think we are gonna be a while…

Mwah!

Bunnypudding discusses goats and going to blog fest 2016

Well hello there my darlings,

Dang BBz,  I much to fill you in on , literally, wheelbarrows full of things to fill you in on. Which as all bloggers know, means I haven’t had a chance to complete any blog posts, but I have a whole Sunday dedicated to sitting at home in my PJs and cats, typing up what I have been up to for the past fortnight. I’m not complaining of course, as the nature of my job (Seo and Digital PR) means that I am literally always doing something in the evenings or have an opportunity to go somewhere, and damn, I worked insanely hard to get to this point but it is still always odd to be typing up posts from three weeks ago…I am sure I am not the only one!

On that note, I will be attending the Mumsnet blog fest 2016 tomorrow and I would adore meeting and/or catching up with anyone who is going, or will be in London for that matter. blog-fest

Looking forward to seeing you there….love……

Oh you didn’t think I would leave it there, did you? Pft, this is BP. No ignoring the huge racist elephant in the room but let forgets all of the past few weeks emotional dramas and laugh at some funny memes because damn it, you either laugh of cry. And if you’re anything like me, some us laugh till we cry! So please enjoy one of my new favourite videos….”Oh my god it’s a ….”

 

It’s almost as good as Chris Kamara many, many gems. Almost.

Oh Chris.

Until Sundays update BBz.

Love you all long time! BP X x

 

 

 

 

Your make up is terrible! ( But I love you anyway)

Hello Darlings!

How are you fabulous people?  I am insanely excited about Halloween and am trying to decide what I should wear for a “Horror Ball” I am attending in Hereford. I will be posting more about this next week so I can give the story the full attention it deserves. It’s a fundraiser in honour of Sophie Lancaster, who was tragically murdered for dressing in Gothic clothing.  Yip. Killed for an outfit. Another prime example of why it is important that we fight hate with love. Fucking fabulous, fierce, unbreakable love. Love wearing  black. Love in Drag. Love with Neon Hair. Love with anything you damn want and as long as you don’t hurt anymore and most importantly, kick someone to death for an outfit.  No outfit is that trashy, sadly, some humans actually are. I will share the donation details as soon as they come, but for now, please check out the Sophie Lancaster Foundation to find out more.

Sophie Lancaster

 

I want to go dressed up with the Boi in something comic but can’t quite settle on a couples outfit, so I am Googling my little fingers to the bone trying to think of something. Ideas most welcomed!

In other news I have recently discovered “Ru Pauls Drag Race” (Fashionably late to the party as always) oh my goodness is it bloody brilliant. I’ve just finished season 4 and fell in love with just about every aspect of that show. It’s so positive and is all about being the best “you” you can be. So certainly up my street!

So I was delighted to get to go with my good friend Ileana to see Alaska Thunderfuck and Sharon Needles  last night. It was even more amazeballs as I got to dress up as my spirit animal Patsy Stone ( Sadly the pictures didn’t do my “blonded” up hair justice…wah! I shall certainly be investing in a wig next time!) which go even better (or worse depending on how my anxiety is deciding to make me feel that day) On stage for a dance off. Yip. One stage. I Loved every minute of it.

Now before you get excited I totally lost and came last but that isn’t because I didn’t try but because we had two amazing dancers in the group and a professional burlesque dancer who were fooking fabulous! I had such a good time and the other three peeps were really lovely.

Anyway, enjoy, enjoy! –

You can’t take me anywhere.

 

 

After last night, I truly feel like a drag queen in a womans body. Excuse my beauty, Mwah!

 In other news, the David Bowie Fame, Fashion and Photography campaign that my team worked on is up for an award…OMG!! To be fair the best award ever was the 50K+ total that we raised for Cancer Research but still…always nice to get Kudos for work you and your team put their heart and soul into. So fingers crossed beauts!

“Still?” “Always.”

 

What are you lots doing for Halloween? I want to know (And I want pictures!)

Love, love, Bp Xx
