Au Revoir November

When Monday dawns it will be December, and, of course, the start of the Retro Chick Advent Calendar!

With just 2 days left of November it’s time for what seems to be becoming a regular look back over the month that was, courtesy of a few carefully chosen snaps from my Instagram.

In November I worked very hard. Some of that hard work was terribly professional, appearing on a panel at the World Travel Market conference, and some of it involved drinking beer, eating food and learning to make my own cocktails and attending a fun event hosted by the Sunday Beauty School. It’s a hard job, but someone has to do it. I also discovered that Cosmopolitan had included my “other blog” on a list of fitness bloggers you should follow. Which was very nice indeed!

I wore stuff and took photos of it, because I’m a fashion blogger and that’s what I do. I also tried out one of those mirror apps that loads of people use and it just made me look like I was trapped in a small room with my own doppelganger, and very miserable about it.

So to celebrate, […] Oooh, tell me more........

Oh No! Not More Cocktails!

lasiguanasnorwich I’m so sorry, I know I promised you no more Cocktails. But these ones were FREE, which is the best kind of cocktail, and they came with dinner thrown in too and it is an actual rule in my life never to turn down a free cocktail. Really On Saturday, after that long drive back […] Oooh, tell me more........

A Trip Up North

FEATURE OX PASTURE Last week was my Wedding Anniversary. I say “my”, it was of course “our” as without Mr Chick there would have been no wedding, but that looked weird when I wrote it as an opening line as normally this blog is about ME ME ME, of course. Well, each year Mr Chick and I take […] Oooh, tell me more........

Being Blonde: Products for Blonde Hair

feature I kind of went blonde gradually. But even taking that into account I’ve had very light blonde bleached hair now for for nearly 2 years, apart from a few forays into pastels and my recent vibrant pinks and purples. My hair is naturally a dark muddy blonde and I colour my hair myself at home […] Oooh, tell me more........
