I'd like to announce the winner of the Vintage Trudy card giveaway, before regaling you with some more tales of my exciting* life recently, so imagine, if you will, a drumroll ringing out...
Comment number 60 was left by one Miss Polly Garter! Congratulations Polly! Please can you email me: firstname.lastname@example.org, with your address and I'll forward it on to the Trudy team! Thank you all for taking part, I'll have more little giveaways soon!
So what else have I been up to? Well. There was a wedding, at which I got the opportunity to wear my smashing sarong dress from Miss Bamboo again.
Now in colour!
My fab red shoes were bought from Shelley's, which you may or may not know is owned by Miss L Fire... which brings me neatly onto my next point! For at the tail end of last year, I was hugely honoured to have been asked to model for none other than shoe brand of dreams, the same Miss L Fire!
We shot this summery picture in a diner near owner Lynsey Hand's amazing house... it got me more than ready for the warmer weather, I can tell you! I'm modelling the gorgeous Monterrey in Red here, and I also sported the Carnivale style, which is a SHOE with BUNTING on it. Could there be anything better?
Do head to the Miss L Fire Facebook page to see the full and AMAZING range. It's painful to see, frankly.
Ooh my calves are a bit big these days, aren't they... that's what running does for you, I guess. And with that razor-sharp segue, I'm going to mention running again briefly. Feel free to switch off now...!
Last Wednesday, it was, of course, Leap Year Day. My thoughts weren't on proposals though, but on 'Making it Count'. Nike, who support my running club, Run Dem Crew had put on a mind-bogglingly big event to mark this extra day, with over 400 members from all the different Nike Run Clubs in London setting off from their individual HQs, wearing custom t-shirts and high-viz bibs, ending up at the Southbank. They'd turned the London Eye green for the occasion (it's usually blue) and had all sorts of activities laid on. It was amazingly good fun, not least because I got to run with super cool people from the crew who are usually in different (read: faster) groups. We all ran together through the highways of London and the skyways of Barbican. Just glorious.
Watch this super slick video and see me jogging on the spot on the far right at 0:36. Away away away!
Just awesome. Really.
Back with more vintage for those of you mentals who don't like running soon. ;)
