It’s yet another catch up post… I really need to get my act together and blog more often.
It’s been an eventful past few weeks. We celebrated the forthcoming wedding of one of my nearest & dearest friends in style. Plasticine willy moulding or aubergine penis carving anyone? I kid you not. The detail on some (of the willies) was outstanding! We then jumped into a limo for a an hour of karaoke and fizz (so much fun – I want to always travel this way) before being dropped off in Sheffield city centre for a lovely meal and cocktails at Anchorage. False moustaches, masks, badges and dares..I’d love to say it was civilised…
Last weekend I was on yet another hen party which meant a wonderful weekend away in Spain. The weather was glorious and we had a good giggle. You really can’t beat girlie weekends away. It’s a hard life but somebody has to do it!
A couple of weeks before any of the above I had been approached by a media company via Twitter to see if I’d participate in an interview regards my cataplexy. Keen to raise awareness, I agreed. I had the ‘read back’ over the phone last week. More on this in a future post.
So Im attending one of the weddings in a few weeks and therefore have been busy shopping. I do love a good wedding…any excuse to get dolled up plus I LOVE shopping!
I’ve got my outfit almost sorted. I purchased, well I say that… the Mr actually treated me to a gorgeous ink lace dress. It’s by Ted Baker and I bought it a few weeks ago in the John Lewis sale. Reduced from £179 to £125. I intend to team it with a pair of Kurt Geiger shoes and snakeskin handbag.
The dress also comes in ‘shell’ but looks abit to much like something a bride may wear. So despite loving this colour-way I stuck with the ink.
The shoes are also ink. Quite lovely but plain. I’m a sucker for an ankle strap – very flattering. Most importantly they are comfty which is something I look out for as I have a I broken toe / something’s not right. It’s a long story but I really should get it x-rayed before I’m marred for life, or reduced to hobbling around in trainers for the rest of my life. Heaven forbid.
Kandice (above) reduced from £100 to £65
Jewellery wise I’ve opted for a pair of earrings from the ever faithful Next. I also have my eye on a lovely pair from Yosa, but as I am currently running on ‘scatty mode’ I have yet to order them. When I showed the Mr the Next pair he pulled a face and asked whether I had pinched them from my grandma! Cheeky! Now my gran was very glamorous and had impeccable taste but I think he was trying to be funny!
And the Yosa pair I’m contemplating getting… They’re abit special aren’t they?!
There’s a couple of weeks until the actual wedding itself so the whole outfit could and most likely will change!
I will of course post a picture on the day itself, but don’t be surprised if it has totally changed. I am a lady after all and it’s my prerogative.
Oh and while we are talking all things weddings… have any of you seen the new(ish) video to ‘Sugar’ by Maroon 5?
While I was away on said hen weekend I would grab myself a cheeky drink, stick MTV on the TV and let it blast away. I would run the shower, jump in and sing along. They played this tune constantly and when I hear it, it evokes alsorts of emotions. All of them a reminder of fun times and its a great little video.
If Carlsberg did weddings eh!? Maroon 5 would turn up and play at mine. Sod that, if they did weddings I’d be greedy and I’d be bagging myself that wonderful hunk of a lead singer Adam and marrying him myself !
A girls allowed to dream *sighs*
Until the next time which will hopefully be sooner than the last.
