Goodbye September

Forgive me Readers, for it has been over a week since my last post.

For someone who normally posts regularly 3 times a week this is unforgivable and the gnawing guilt has been at me all week.

I spent most of the week dealing with huge anxiety about my impending first public Roller Derby game, and the rest of it dealing with Cocktail Week admin which is all getting terribly real after almost a year of planning!

Next week prepare yourself for an influx of cocktail event and outfit posts as it’s going to be a very cool week!

Today I shall share a little insight into my September via Instagram.

There were lots of Norwich Cocktail Week related activities, it’s a hard job sometimes. We made a great arrangement with Droplet so people could get a wristband for themselves half price, and the EDP did a lovely feature on us that involved me drinking Cocktails for photos at 11am. Tough job.

I wore outfits and bought clothes that haven’t yet made it to the blog, and some that did. That amazing origami hair flower is a “coming soon” piece from Betsy Hatter, the 60s night dress came from Wake Up Little Susie and that leopard print blouse comes from the Heyday seconds page on their Facebook, always worth a look!

While I’m convincing myself that this is still “late Summer” autumn in unavoidably on it’s way, and with it comes jackets, tights, shoes with toes in and all those other things we conveniently forgot we needed over the Summer. So today, here are just a very […] Oooh, tell me more........

A Very Foxy Bag

foxy handbag copy I appear to have unintentionally developed a thing for Foxes…. Nica are a handbag company I’ve worked with before, they gave a lovely prize to last years advent calendar giveaway, and they asked me if I wanted to pick something out from their site for myself.

Foxy Lady

featire This weekend the lovely Betsy Hatter got married! Mr & Mrs Hatter had a beautiful wedding at a local venue out on the country called the Keeper and the Dell. It’s a beautiful place, but very rural, so normal wedding attire and high heels were very impractical. Ballet pumps were very much the order of […] Oooh, tell me more........
