Guest post: the bestie

Today's guest blogger is a real life friend - my little blonde bestie Heather.   I keep trying to encourage her to get a blog, but so far I've only managed to get her on to twitter - she's @fluffypinkystar

I had this really great idea that I would guest on @tweetiegem’s blog whilst she was on holiday.  So much so that before my brain digested that the idea might involve some work my mouth was opening and suggesting it.

For the last few nights I’ve sat slumped over my laptop racking my brains whilst trying to decide on what I should post about.  I’ve also sat writing a Christmas wishlist, online shopping and reading celebrity gossip.  This is probably why I’m writing my feature at the last possible moment and have come to the conclusion that either I’m not cut out for blogging or have writer's block.

As you’ve already seen some stuff written about me by @tweetiegem and our exploits I decided I would give you all an insight on who I am and what it’s like to be her bestie.

I heart cats.  I have two cats called Rufus and Charlie.  They love cuddles and in my opinion are the best looking cats in the neighbourhood.  I hope you agree by looking at the picture.  @tweetiegem has given them different names – Ginge and Non Ginge.  I suppose this is easier to remember.


I got married last year.  @tweetiegem organised my bridal shower and hen do which was one of the best days of my life.  I’d love to do it all again but I think she’d freak out having to go through the pain of organising it all again!


I dislike football.  My hubby is a Charlton fan.  Unfortunately they are not very good.  Football is like a form of torture.  My tv is invaded whilst he watches it, he then reads up on matches after the event and has post game discussions with his equally strange friends.

I sometimes say things that are a bit blonde – these are called Heatherisms.  Some of my more memorable Heatherisms include ‘cucumbers are a salad’, ‘it’s all about mahogany ‘ (whilst talking about monogamy) and ‘can everyone f**k back’.

I love trashy gossip about celebrities.  Particularly Katie Price vs Peter Andre.  I’m team Andre and know every word to Mysterious Girl.  I also think he is hot.


My favourite tv programmes are soaps especially Hollyoaks and Eastenders.  Nothing beats a Sunday morning sitting in my PJs with a cup of tea catching up with all my recorded programmes.

@tweetiegem likes to outstay her welcome. This started a few years ago and normally involves alcohol.  After one too many cocktails I fell asleep and woke up at 4am to find her still sitting there chatting away with my other friend.  The longest she stayed was until 7am.

I’m scared of snakes.  Even cartoon ones.  When I was younger a weird child tried to put a snake on me and I fainted.  This was in the middle of the street in Bulgaria.


My ‘can’t live without’ beauty product is mascara.  I’ve tried so many different brands but my ultimate favourite is Maxfactor false lash effect.


I love my friends dearly and @tweetiegem is the best bestie a girl could ask for.  I’ve known her for 8 years now and in that time we've consumed a lot of strawberry margaritas, glammed up for a few events, made tits of ourselves whilst under the influence, gossiped for hours and spent £1000’s on clothes that we get bored of quite quickly!


I’m hoping to start my own blog next year so keep your eyes posted for me!

Love Heather  xxx

Wow, I wasn't expecting that sort of post, it's so sweet! Thanks Hev, love you too you old goat xx

I love how I'm referred to as @tweetiegem throughout! Also, she seems a lot keener on getting her own blog than I thought - result!

If anyone's wondering about "can everyone f**k back", check out this post and for more on Heather's bridal shower have a look here.

Check out the fluffy one on twitter or buy some pretty dresses from her bulging wardrobe on ebay - she has lots of stuff ending tonight (Saturday) in sizes 8 - 12.
