About Me

1150380_10151536986966507_308052068_nIm a 24 25 (bloody hell, I’m 27!) year old who by day masquerades as a grown up, working in a digital agency with bloggers (spending the day doing what I love!) but by night puts my pants on over my trousers and becomes a super woman! 🙂

I live in London town which is a blessing and a curse, and I have tried my hand at a number of jobs, including bar work, lettings and design. Really what I want to do is be able to travel the world and write about it, or alternatively made a mess with paint or cake mix.

Life is for living, so get out there and do it.

I love your comments so please do not hesitate to let me know what you think!!

Laughter Is Catching is PR and people friendly. Gifted items will be for my consideration only, and i will not responsible for the return of un-used products. Please get in touch if you would like me to review your product, I will tend to only agree if the product fits in with my lifestyle and aesthetic. I would prefer to choose the items you are gifting myself, one size doesn’t fit all, people!

All gifted items will be marked with an (*) or clearly marked as in collaboration with.

Laughter is Catching is a for-profit blog. i write because i love it and have done since I was old enough to spell. I also love being able to pay bills and eat food, so if brands want to pay me for my opinions and thoughts, that that’s an added bonus to me. I will always disclose where I have collaborated with a brand, because I like to tell the truth, and if I don’t like it I’ll tell you, or I won’t write about it at all (my Nan says if you haven’t anything nice to say its ladylike to not say anything at all).

Drop me an email, I will always try to respond.

  42. James Lee April 6, 2011 at 10:34 pm #

    Ah, a fellow sheep-by-day-superhero-by-night! What do you mean by putting pants on over trousers? On this side of the pond, that means wearing two pants! Thanks for reading my blog. Yours is definitely one to follow too!

    • tinkerbelle86 April 6, 2011 at 10:35 pm #

      oh yeah sorry, my bad. panties, undergarments, knickers, pantaloons………. smalls!!!

    thanks for appreciating one of my blog entries!

    reading your “about me” page made me conclude that you’re a person of spontaneity; therefore, it’d be interesting to follow you!

    please to meet you “here”, btw.

    (please delete the two comments before this one.)

    Hey. Found your blog while blogsurfing (well, taking a Hansel and Gretel trek through the blogoshere and leaving comments like breadcrumbs lol) Really love your blog. And the bickering over the dishwasher sounds familiar, except its at home we fight over it, not at work.

    I’ll be back soon for more giggles 🙂
    Lots of hugs

    I’ve heard about both of the matters in the news, and it is upsetting. But still, I love those glasses! And thanks for commenting on my first post, for yes, blowing things up gives such a thrill. (Of course, there are other interesting things to chemistry 😉 )

  64. thediaryofsugarandspice August 4, 2011 at 1:56 pm #

    Ok Miss thang – I desperately need your help! So glad I have a friend in the UK! Do you remember those sweets that were similar to the “Starburst” candy in the States. I’m pretty sure the name starts with an “S” and they came in flavors of strawberry or well..I can’t remember. But they discontinued making them. Can you recall??
    P.S…..love love love your blog 🙂 xoxoxo

    • tinkerbelle86 August 8, 2011 at 4:42 pm #

      ohmygod totally put on the spot, i dont know! all i can think is starburst which is clearly not the answer! ill ask the troops and see if we can come up with an answer. tis like the crypton factor 🙂

      • thediaryofsugarandspice September 20, 2011 at 2:01 pm #

        Holy Mother of GOD! I figured it out!!! OPAL FRUITS!!! :-)))))

        • tinkerbelle86 September 20, 2011 at 2:02 pm #

    Thought I’d have a look at your blog as you had the good taste to visit mine. It made me laugh. Will return. See ya

  67. mannyvillarreal3 August 7, 2011 at 5:19 am #

    You know, I like to read quite a bit of other people’s blogs, but I have the tendency not to leave any messages to them. I feel a bit unworthy to tell anyone whether or not they are good. Most, however, are much better than I feel I could ever be. I do feel grateful to the people who are better and, yet, chose to leave me a thought or two. As I read all of these other comments, I see that you are even better than that. Thank you for being who you are. As I see it, you truly are tinkerbelle, spreading your fairy dust all over, and, making us happy, watching as we float up to the ceiling in wonder. Thank you.

    • tinkerbelle86 August 7, 2011 at 3:19 pm #

      thank you this is such a nice comment and touching to read. 🙂

  68. Usup Supriyadi August 7, 2011 at 7:49 am #

    Don’t be silly! Being 25 is a GREAT age, I can only imagine! It’s the time you don’t take BS from ANYONE and start being purely yourself… right?! 😉

    • tinkerbelle86 August 26, 2011 at 2:42 pm #

      hahaha…. actually yeah i am getting better at doing what i want rather than doing what i think i should to keep everyone else happy. love your blog, are you dual nationality? i would love to move to america for a time as my family live there but the greencard conumdrum is the problem

    Hello! Thank you for the like on my blog post this morning! I’m excited to check out your blog! 🙂

    I’ve heard a lot about the “magical age of 25” by the way. Is it really that magical? Maybe so? Maybe no? Ahh. I have a year and a half to go until I find out for myself. 🙂

  76. caloricandcrazy August 31, 2011 at 1:43 pm #

    Thanks for reading my blog and liking my post =)
    you look like loads of fun! it’s funny how you shudder at being 25….i’m 19 and i think i’m old 😛

    anyways, can’t wait to read more from you in the future and feel free to stop by my blog anytime…or follow…he he 🙂

  77. mbryant613 August 31, 2011 at 4:36 pm #

    My favorite quote: “Life is for living, so get out there and do it.” What more can I say? So glad you “liked” a post so I was able to discover another blog I’ll be following!! 🙂

  79. jletookthis September 1, 2011 at 7:52 am #

    You’re right… your ears do make your glasses look weird. =P Just kidding, of course! I dig your blog… you seem to have interestingly funny things to talk about. It makes me feel like I should update mine more, but then again, it’s like, not as awesome as this, so why bother? Haha, keep up the good work!

    Thank you for the Like. It’s sort of similar to getting a food package in the mail. Except without having to go to the post-office to go and get it. Which is pretty great.

  92. gary Simmons September 16, 2011 at 3:58 pm #

    Alright you have heard it before. You visited mine and I was curious at who would do such a thing. I love the nursery rhymes and the Tampax. Some day I will share a story with you about a farmer who found a box of Kotex. Mean while I really enjoyed your site.

    Great minds think alike: clearly you understand the importance of spreading joy, laughter and pixie-dust wherever you go, as I have been learning over my many years. Keep the faith! There’s so much happiness to be sprinkled about and so much fun to be had in the doing of it, as is evident even in a quick perusal of your readers’ comments here!
    Glad you stopped by my spot so I now know to ‘keep an eye on you’ too.

  108. from paradise hawaii September 26, 2011 at 11:25 am #

    I love your fairy tales…perhaps you can visit travel agencies in your and surrounding towns and see what destinations are under-publicized. Then contact those spots (eg., such as Hawaii or its PR agency such as the Hawaii Visitors Bureau) and let them know they are in dire need of a good pixie who can wave magic in your nearby towns and influence them to desire travelling afar…

    Keep up your good works!

From fleeing the Nazis in 1939 to facing down the Taleban in Kabul decades later, she was a remarkable 20th Century woman. She passed away in London earlier this year. I hope you many fans (and you deserve them) will take a few minutes to learn a bit about her life and times.

    Hi, Laura – wasn’t sure where to put this. Hope this is okay.

    I have picked you for The Versatile Blogger Award. I recently received it and am happy to be passing it on to five other deserving bloggers, of which you are one.

    Your writing is fun, light, and frank. It makes me laugh, gasp, shudder, and sometimes even cry (or at least be sad). But mostly it makes me laugh in a healing, fun way. Your blog, IMO, is a service to your readers and as such is most deserving of this award.

    If you would like more details and the rules of this award, go to my site here.
