Hi, I’m Natasha.
Ooh, look at me welcoming you to my creative blog, where I will introduce you to all the fun, creative and crazy things I get up to.
I am a wife and a mother to my 3 children and 2 dogs, so you can imagine how chaotic it can get in our house.
“Ooh, look at me!” is an ironic name because I actually don’t like drawing attention to myself or my family, yet I really like inspiring others to be creative because I know how fulfilling it can be. The name also comes from something silly we used to say years ago and it kind of just stuck with me.
Check out our About Us page for more information about us and what we do.
I hope this brings you creative joy
Let’s get yarning and creative!
Ooh, look at me going on a creative journey with you!

BOOK REVIEW (By Natasha 07/11/16) - Shopaholic to the Rescue By Sophie Kinsella
“Shopaholic to the Rescue” is the sequel to “Shopaholic to the Stars” from the “Shopaholic” series. After moving to Hollywood for her husband’s job, Becky Brandon is caught up in a bucket load of drama. She now has to go on a rescue mission to find her dad and her best friends husband because they think Bryce, a dodgy character from Golden Peace, has kidnapped them and wants to take all their money. They are loaded up in an RV - Becky, her husband, Luke, their daughter, Minnie, Becky’s looney mum, Becky’s mum’s looney best friend, Becky’s best friend, Suze, and Alicia, who Becky absolutely despises but Suze has brought her along. They are travelling to Las Vegas because they think it is where the missing men are. However, it is met with much drama, blackmail, self-discovery and finding out answers to all the questions they all have at the beginning of the trip. There is even a visit to a County Fair. Will they all find the answers they are looking for?
I never wanted to read the Shopaholic series before because I saw the movie first and it put images in my head of what the characters look like and what the storyline is, so it spoilt the idea of reading them. However, my son bought me “Shopaholic to the Stars” for my birthday, which I read. But, I was really frustrated that it ended on a cliffhanger that was continued in this book, “Shopaholic to the Rescue”. I was lucky because my son then bought me it for Christmas so I could satisfy my craving to find out what happened.
I am a fan of Sophie Kinsella and I have read many of her other books, which I thoroughly enjoyed and highly recommend. However, “Shopaholic to the Rescue” just was as fulfilling for me. I really only read this one because I wanted answers from the first one. Had my son not bought it for me, I probably wouldn’t even own it yet, because even though I wanted answers, I didn’t really enjoy the first one that much. It is one of those books that you keep reading just because you want to know what happens and you can’t just skip to the end because everything is revealed in stages throughout the book.
If you are a fan of the “Shopaholic” series then you will love this book, but my own opinion is I wouldn’t recommend it.
Unfortunately, I rate “Shopaholic to the Rescue” a 2 out of 5.
