My Week Through Instagram .. A Week In Fashion And Friends

A couple of hours of "me time" I enjoyed
a very sparkly, lush manicure and pedicure 
From my lovely friend Sam

 New specs, Soho Frames in light tortoise from

I am so impressed with the company, I ordered another pair, as my reading prescription is slightly too strong for cutting hair and computer work.  They were so helpful, glasses ordered with prescription and delivered within two days, both times.  Like Specsavers, they also have a "buy a pair get a pair free offer" and are a very similar price.  So I am delighted, I have four pairs, in three different styles... 
My husband thinks I looks a geek... ...I think they must be cool then.

Uber Trendy Jules 

My uber trendy friend liked them so much, she kept pinching them..
and she doesn't need them, so they are definitely cool
Jules is wearing Camden frames in dark tortoise.

Soho frames again, now in dark tortoise

 I also bought Carnaby frames in red

The Six inch Heel Jimmy Choo's

Friday, we went to my cousins wedding, it was wonderful.  So many family members that I have not seen for years.  So many wonderful cousins I knew only in "Cyberland" 
I do hope we were not too much for them, I know that the hotel ran out of vodka!...I was so ill too.
The previous two days I had been suffering with migraine and had not eaten solid food .. Plus I was far too exited on the evening to eat.
All I will say is the shoes were off and the lap dancer was out of the box.....

The before photo...

I am wearing a silver silk tunic from Donna Karan SS11 with 
silver, crazy patterned, silk leggings from Aminaka Wilmot and the six inch Jimmy Choo's.  My man is looking very smart in a Italian collection grey, slimcut suit from M&S....
So nice to have Hubble Gardiner back, I was most concerned, that he was slowly turning into Onzlo.. giggle 

Fall Is Coming

I am getting in the mood for Autumn.  The September issue's are out and the Ivy turning red.  This mood always happens in August, but I enjoy it as this is my favourite time of year.

The lucky purchase of my 1960's bag

Lunch date

I met my friend who was home from Dubai for lunch in Chester
I am wearing my favourite Alexander McQueen SS09 dress
I love this dress,  if I ever need a boost.. this does the trick


Where I met at my friend on our first day of work at Browns of Chester. I was working for Clarins and she was with Charles of the Ritz....Over twenty years ago now .. Scary

Early evening drinks with my friends..

In contrast to the wedding, I did not drink but drove.  Driving home felt great, I could remember all the conversations and this morning I have no cringe worthy moments... I feel this is the way forward. Honestly, I am exactly the same person, sober or drunk.. I just dance more after a drink.
I am wearing a silk sleeveless cowl neck from Top Shop, Black JBrand Skinnies, with Mexican Concho belt, with a lace bolero.........
Which is such a Sunflower yellow ......that just before I went out a Bee stung me through the fucking sleeve!!

  8. What great pictures - I loved all your outfits and those shoes!!

  9. Hello again, Sister in law lives in a small village called Barrow.

    I was going to do an outfit post this week but am currently under attack from mozzies and horsefly's am currently nursing bites all over my arms and legs which have swollen up to the size of golf balls!

  10. Hello my friend, catching up on blog visits and post reading ... wow looks like you have been having a very social couple of weeks... Loved the swan photo.... and gosh your boys are growing so tall.

    You look fabulous as always in your photos .. and I'm salivating over those Jimmy's ... gosh I wish I could still wear those gorgeous high heels.

    Your vintage Gucci bag Gorgeous!!! thanks for sharing the source ... off to check out.. Wishing you a wonderful week-end..xo HHL

  11. You'd look good in sack cloth. I wish I could keep specs long enough to buy nice ones. I have a pair on now with only one stem. I think they were handed down by Van Gogh

  15. you are so fashionable!!!! Nice to know you and your blog!


  16. you are a very pretty woman , these glasses looks awesome on you, hugs from Belgium x

  17. I was curious if you ever thought of changing the layout
    of your site? Its very well written; I love what
    youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content
    so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only
    having one or two pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?

  18. mayhap even a whom they consider some Alchemy fit.
    This Christmas I in reality had the time to
    male, whose sideline is to toy with your ticker simply
    to bust it into pieces.
