Whew, that was a long old week into a long weekend! And I still have a few more days of work before my boss (that’d be me) has generously given me a day off to recharge my batteries. Don’t worry, I’m not going to bore you with all of my long week/weekend, because much of […]
Today I’ve tried to save you from yet more photos of me in front of my fireplace. Roll on summer when I can go and find an interesting variety of places to prance around outside in daylight when I want to show off my frock before I go out for the evening. Initially I did […]
I do love a bit of fantasy shopping. It’s like real shopping but without any of the “Oh I can’t afford to pay my bills” guilt at the end. Here in Norwich we have a pretty amazing independent local department store called Jarrold, and they asked me to do just that, a bit of fantasy […]
Just a little catch up with my #100happydays. I’m a third of the way in now, 33 happy days and counting. Hovering over the pictures should show you the caption. What’s made you happy over the last month?
One way of getting over some dissatisfaction with your wardrobe is to buy more stuff. There are cheaper ways, but while doing very important research for We Want All the Dresses (read: Window shopping for frocks) I found one on BooHoo.com that was cheap enough to suit my current meagre budget, and I thought it […]
Whether you’re single, coupled up or “it’s complicated”, rest assured that *I* love you and have collected some vintage valentines to prove it! Make the most of the special offers on fizzy wine and chocolates, and avoid the over priced roses and it’ll be fine.
Welcome to another week. The weather is pretty grotty, so at this time of year I grab any excuse to celebrate and cling onto it for dear life, and it just so happened that this weekend another opportunity presented itself. On Saturday lunch time I had my Sign Off sessions for Level 2 Roller Derby […]
I’ve really not been feeling my winter wardrobe this year. I normally love my tweeds, jumpers, smart coats and berets. I love the extra opportunities for co-ordination and accessorising that winter presents, but this year I’ve just really not been feeling the love for any of it. I feel like I’ve spent most of the […]
Tomorrow it will finally be February. I’m looking forward to January being over, and February brings along an excellent excuse for a celebration, Valentines Day. Lots of people have a funny relationship with Valentines Day, they can’t stand the cliched romance that somehow has to be crow barred into just one day, the heart shaped […]
Last night I took my new dress out for cocktails. Ever since I came back from Las Vegas it’s been hung on the back of my bedroom door eyeing me reproachfully. “I don’t care about your coughing and spluttering” it seemed to say, “I’m a lovely dress, you owe me glamour and cocktails”. So last […]
Ok, this is my last post on Vegas, I promise! Day Three wasn’t even a full day, but it felt like I needed a round up of my trip, so it seemed like the perfect opportunity. I woke up to sun streaming through my curtains as I’d forgotten to close them when I stumbled back […]
I hoped to get chance to write this before I left. But obviously I didn’t, so here it is! I’m back on English soil now, still very tired but over the jet lag and a trip to Las Vegas all seems like a bit of a dream. On the second day I’d be given the […]
I’m actually just at the end of day two as I write this. But over in the UK you’re in the middle of the night on day 3 and I’ll be getting on a plane soon. Gosh time zones are confusing, which is what my body says when it wakes up at 4am every morning […]
Guess where I am? Ok, so the title sort of gave that away. I’m in VEGAS BABY! I hadn’t mentioned it before as honestly, I didn’t truly believe it would happen, even once I was actually on the plane! There was no post yesterday as I was on an epic 21 hour trip that included […]
Happy 2014! I woke up yesterday morning with the rottenest cold in the world. I had not inexpensive tickets to the New Years Eve Bo Nanafana, which is always a fabulous night out, so I was determined to drug myself into oblivion and make it out anyway. I dragged myself coughing, spluttering and with my […]
The last day of the year is finally here. Tomorrow there’ll be a whole shiny and new one to hopefully make great, but today it’s time to look back at some of my years highlights. I started the year with a published piece on Norwich in Pretty Nostalgic magazine (you can read a PDF here), […]
