*cough*splutter*

Yes... those are the noises I have been making most recently. I hate being ill, and indeed I'm not very good at it as I rarely do and don't have the patience to lie around in bed. Having said that, I'd rather be anywhere than at work...and preferably in bed!

However, I can't complain too much as I did just have a fantastic weekend in Marrakech! It was for an old friend's hen (batchelorette) party. Much haggling was done, much wine was drunk and much laughing was undertaken. Unfortunately, this meant that much money was spent. No more eating or spending until payday!

On our first day, we witnessed the most unbelievable, biblical deluge and electrical storm. We were on a roof terrace, undercover and still got pretty wet. Still it was spectacular! Here's me and my mint tea, just before the monsoon started!

I also had my first ever pedicure, and I'm going to have to keep it up now, I never knew it was possible for my feet to look so much better!
Doing what we do best - shopping. And yes, I am sooo much taller than all the other girls!

Here's me and the bride-to-be on our main night out. Sadly the lovely 'mood' lighting in our Riad meant that we couldn't see how much makeup we were putting on, and so I may have overdone the foundation slightly!


The Monday before I went away, I was privileged to be modelling at the at the IFB and Mademoiselle Robot London Fashion Week Dress Up Soirée. It was lovely to meet so many fabulous ladies, especially Melle Robot herself.

I got to model some truly divine dresses from Vintage Secret, and got to meet the gals from Queens of Vintage too, so it was a marvellous night all round.

Finally, here's the final picture from my Matt Frederick shoot. I went on another shoot not too long ago, the results of which look very impressive so far. So come back for more soon!

  1. What a fun hen party!
    Pedicures are addictive,because your feet never look the same when you do them yourself.
    Love the faux fringe and your last pic. (so Hurrell)

    So sorry to hear that you're under the weather. :( I hope you get better soon!

    I adore the Mahjong tile bracelet you have on in the second photo. I've been looking for one like that for awhile. Would you mind sharing where you bought it?

  10. I am exactly the same! I am horribly sick at the moment and it's driving me mental. I hate doing nothing. Usually I soldier on through sickness, but I've got to the death's door stage, so have to lie down. Grr. :( Get well soon!

  11. Looks like Djema el Fna in Marakesh! I loved it there, and people were much friendlier than I anticipated.

  12. I love your gingham top!

    How does it feel to always be the prettiest girl wherever you go?
    I don't mean that there's anything wrong with your friends, it's just that you look so classy and immaculate in every outfit you wear.
    It must be hard to keep up with you.

    Are you going to any weekenders or events in spring/summer, would be nice to say hi in real life. :)

  13. Oh, my wicker bag was a find on eBay, of course, it's from NEXT.

  14. Stunning shots there, I'd hang on to that photographer. I'm very impressed with the holiday hair too. Get well soon. :)

  15. Looks like you have had a fantastic weekend!

    Out of interest, how do you manage to get your hair so shiny - it is a source of continual envy to me!

  16. Thanks all for the well-wishes!

    Casey Koester: The mah-jong bracelet was an eBay find! It's made of 1920s tiles, and I have a bakelite one too.

    Rascal: I am going to the Hepcats Holiday and I hope to Rhythm Riot again - are you going to those? I agreee it'd be great to say hi in real life! Thanks for the Next bag info - will look out for one on eBay - why do I never see these things in the shops!

    Mystery Creature: Thank you, but there's no secret really, I'm sure it doesn't look so shiny in real life! The semi-permanent dye I put on a few weeks ago did make it shiny though, I think it was a clairol one!

  20. We have plans to go to Hemsby in May and then off to Spain in June and also Spain in September.
    We're not going to RR, I think my man is still banned. (Someone accused him of stealing a double bass!)
