So I've had a very quiet weekend, conserving energy and funds for my trip to Dorset and Cornwall at the end of the week.

Miss Simmonds and I went to a couple of local fetes on Saturday so I could dutifully do some flyering for Vintage Festival (only 18 days and counting now!!) and I had planned to attend a Classic Car show yesterday to flyer there as well but I felt rather unwell so sadly had to give it a miss.

I did however take some Instagram photos of Saturday's frolics:

Tonight I am off to a local bar for a 'boutique cinema' screening of Shutter Island where I hope to give out some more flyers for Vintage - I'll try and take some sneaky snaps if I can!!

Bye for now.

Arty party

Well hello there,

Recently I went to my local university's degree art show with my lovely friend Stephanie and I'd forgotten about all the photos we took until I looked on my iPod earlier so I thought I'd show you what we got up to there....

We had a super evening looking at all of the pieces on display, and all right on our doorstep so no need to traipse into London!!

Pre-pre Vintage 2012 excitement

So today I have been working very hard but I have also been getting incredibly excited about my trip to Vintage Festival 2012.

I will be sharing my tent (it's fairly palatial - I'm a glamper after all) with my darling friend Clare of Miss Simmonds Says fame and I cannot wait to doll up and get down to all the fantastic music, eat amazing food, see wonderful fashion, hair and beauty, design and art exhibits and generally just have a right old knees up.

With this in mind I have been scouring the internet for sartorial inspiration - as you're all aware summer has been a wash out (literally) so far this year so it is with trepidation that I will be packing my suitcase for Vintage. At the moment I am leaning towards era's that allow for plenty of layering and a certain amount of scruffiness. After all, perfect make up and elegantly coiffed hair doesn't have much longevity when faced with gale force winds and torrential rain. So I will be taking my influences from the 70's and 80's for their wearable, fluid and easily layered pieces - I hope this will enable me to stay warm and dry whilst looking uber glam.

I'm inspired so far by:

Now, I suppose Courtney Love and Nicole Richie are somewhat controversial choices but I love Courtney's take on the 70's Stevie Nicks look and although Nicole Richie can be considered somewhat bland and a bit of a clothes horse I do like her way of pulling together that lovely relaxed 70's hippy style, although personally I would clash colours and patterns more so as not to play it as 'safe'.

Anyway, I'll be out and about a lot over the weekend flyering for Vintage at various local events so I'll try to take photos and post them.

I'm also being whisked off to Cornwall for a long weekend next week so I'll be sure to write lots about that too!!

Bye for now.

Staging a come back.

Hello there,

After a brief dalliance with Wordpress I am now using this blog again. This is in part due to the fact that I found Wordpress a bit fiddly and difficult to use. But secondly (and most importantly!) I missed all my blogging chums!!! People on Wordpress are not generally as friendly or keen to follow/comment on my ramblings, I am sorry that I left you guys and hope that you'll still be my friends!

So much has happened in my life recently, I'll do a proper update as soon as I have time but for now please see some photos of what I have been up to lately:

1 - Lunching for my friend who's moved to Australia
2 - All dolled up and flyering at local events for the fabulous Vintage Festival
3 - Salad of rocket, watercress and spinach with stilton, beetroot and cucumber
4, 5, 6 and 7 - Wycombe weirdness for May Day
8 - Chorizo, pea and red wine risotto

Lots more exciting (I hope) posts to come.
