I am back after an incredibly hectic (but very fun) weekend!
I visited my hometown – again – this time for the 30th Birthday of a cousin, which was marked by a Hat Party.
I opted for a sparkly miniature burlesque top-hat and came a close 2nd in the competition.
Turns out I didn’t win because I was family. Psh.
You can see my hat here, modelled by Piglet.
And you can see Chiglet’s reaction to the festivities here:
We also did a cheeky bit of shopping.
I finally treated myself to some Minnetonka Moccasins that I’ve wanted for years.
I had wanted a darker tan colour, but they didn’t have them in my size.
I think I’ll by using a gentle suede dye to change the colour on these babies to a more caramel-esque hue.
I can’t wait for cooler weather now so I can break these badboys out!
In the spirit of shopping I also treated myself to the Caudalie Beauty Elixir & Benefit Coralista blush and simultaneously made my first buy from FeelUnique.
I’m a true FeelUnique convert now – so far its been a fantastic shopping experience & my items are due to arrive tomorrow!
The beauty elixir has peppermint essential oils in, which have been found to be great for keeping travel sickness & “crusty” feelings at bay on long-haul flights – so I’m investing now to try the product out before our trip to Shanghai.
The BIG news is that we finally booked our flights! I’ll go into more detail on this tomorrow for Travel Tuesday, so stay tuned!
I also popped to Oasis and bagged a gorgeous dress – images up on Wednesday!
I hope you all had a lovely, if wet, weekend.
