Dear body,

It's been almost two weeks, why can't you shake off this lurgy? Honestly, I am one of these people that's hardly ever ill, and I don't think I've actually been 100% *well* so far this year. I'm still waking up with a mouth like the Sahara because my nose is completely blocked. Bah!

Anyway. My lovely man has scarpered off to New York, again, leaving me bereft for another week. So I spent this weekend ruining my diet at my parents' house, and then embarking on a mammoth spring clean of my flat. This was partly due to the fact that despite Frontlining my cats every month, I combed one and found he still had some fleas. So that was it, I removed all the furniture from my bedroom (the only room with carpet), blitzed it thoroughly with spray and put everything back, but differently. I'm amazed at how much bigger it looks! I also reorganised my entire CD and DVD collections, stripped and washed the sofa cushions, and made vegetable soup from scratch. I am a domestic goddess! Or I would be if I hadn't got so exhausted at 8pm that I had to stop without finishing the rest of the cleaning. Still, I will finish it over the next few evenings. I am still very pleased!

I was delighted to receive a new picture from Rebecca Parker the other day. She'd been going back through her shoots from last year and found one she just had to edit! I think it's fab, but then I think everything she does is splendiferous.



A question for my readers ... would you be interested in 'Daily Outfit' type posts from me? My main reasons for not doing them are that a. I don't have a very good lens for my camera so it's hard to take them in my flat and b. I don't know if people would actually be interested! If enough people are, I will get myself a new lens and give it a go! So speak up now! :)

PS. The good people responsible for last month's wonderful Blitz Party have just announced the date for the next one; it's on the 28th of March. Unfortunately I don't yet know if I can go, but I really hope I can. It is bound to be just as fab as the last one, if not better!

  12. Do your cats go outside? If they're being frontlined every month maybe the flea you saw was one which jumped on them while they were outside - if they're frontline protected the flea will die in 12/24 hours on them and as long as they're being frontlined every month any new eggs laid will die when hatched.. so they should be OK.. however if they go outside ask vet to recommend something stronger than frontline (not sure if there is but there may be..).. cat fleas drive me insane but thankfully I haven't found one on Freddie for a whole year now.

  21. Thanks all for the feedback - I guess that is settled then. I will procure myself a decent lens and keep my flat tidy in preparation...ulp! :D

    Vintage Angel: Would you be interested in hairdo tutorials? Another thing I can do with my new camera lens. If you let meknow which dos in particular I can certainly help!

  22. I find it really hard to get the pin curls to stay in place. I have quite long hair and just can't bring myself to cut it (I have naturally wavy hair) to make it easier to deal with.

    Erm so... pin curls, the fringe curl thing and just whatever you have time to show us.

    Quick question: when did you start dressing fully in vintage and doing the hair and make up? and how did people who knew you react to it?

  23. I'm always looking for ways to get a more vintage look, you really are an inspiration! I really wanted to know where the blouse you were wearing in this shoot came from, it's lovely!
