First of all, happy May Day! Although we are having the bank holiday next Monday, the 1st of May is the day of celebrating the arrival of Summer and in old Celtic times and the festival of Beltane. Sadly I won’t be dancing around the Maypole, instead I am at home recovering from yesterday’s surgery. Onward to the niceties…
Last Saturday me and some friends from work gathered at Chloe’s to celebrate Irene and Bex’s birthdays. Everyone contributed with something to eat, Laura prepared some activities and Tom brought the game Twister! We played treasure hunt, pass the parcel and Twister in the end. The parcel had animal masks in them, that we all happily wore. It was like a children’s party but who cares? We had a laugh and everyone loved it. The star of the party was baby Riley, brought in by his Mum Fiona, who at 9 months of age is a real gentleman. I swear I’ve never seen a baby as well behaved as little Riley Roo! I wish I could show you the photos of us. An all around good time was had, with a lot of food thrown in! Needless to say I didn’t eat anything else all day as I had to be rolled back home.
And what did I wear to the party? Details: Angora Sweater – South (via Ebay), Necklace – Anna Dello Russo for H&M, kindly purchased for me by my friend Fábio, Belt – H&M (also worn here), Tutu Skirt – Ebay (also worn here), Tights – Calzedonia (very old), Shoes – Irregular Choice (very old)
This is the jumper I am planning on applying some jewels to, in the same way I did here. Now that I’ve worn it without them, I’m not sure I want to add the jewels anymore. What do you think?
Hope you are having a good week.
Sunday Sunday, I love a lazy Sunday. I mean who doesn’t? Having a lie in, time to do your own projects, nap and snack when you want… The perfect day of the week if you ask me!
Last weekend I traveled to Lincoln to go to the movies. It was a nice trip out.
I wore a big flower on my hair and my uber cool DIY project.
Tabi shoes from Japan, Silver jeans and Dr Martens high heeled loafers.
More inappropriate wear for the Office- rainbow platforms from the Office outlet on Ebay and the Ahcahcum Muchacha cat bag. I love it!
The red sparkly shoes I got from a blog sale at Emily Divine and the embroidered ones are from Oysho and I’ve had them for god knows how many years…
I love getting nice things through the post – particularly if they have s sense of humour. I got the rosette from Dear Colleen, a super fun indie shop from New Zealand. It’s a one woman show and what a great show it is, go on right ahead and have a look, you won’t regret it. I also learned how to use my sewing machine for the first time this week. I am hoping it will be a lasting love affair.
Yesterday I went to a tea party at Chloe’s. I was even given a teacup to match my outfit, how cute was that?
Party mask and cake!
We played twister and it was a laugh… to watch!!! I’ll be posting more about it during the week.
When I got home I found a lovely package that had arrived when I was out – A flower crown and loads of goodies from Desiree of Pull Your Socks Up! Thank you for all the goodies – the kookaburra magnet went straight on the fridge and I can’t wait for an opportunity to wear the amazing flowers on my head.
