My Festival Style

Stonehenge  2013

My entry for the Charles Clinkard competition >> Details here Win a pair of Hunter wellies

Having first gone to a festival in the 1970`s they have certainly grown in size and ticket price but otherwise they are still amazing fun.

Linen Sprig Pocket BagCross body Bag Cath Kidson in the sale its £22 I think this is great for a festival its big enough for a camera, phone and she-wee. What more does a girl need.


 Hunter adjustable Wellies waterproof and stylish ideal for my festival style which is fun, hippy and waterproof.  £85


Joe Browns Maxi Dress currently in the sale at  for £37.00.  Cool,  stylish  and flattering and hippy enough for any festival. I am in my fifties so a maxi dress covers a lot of lumps and bumps.

Shower proof jacket

  Disty floral print shower proof jacket from milletts £30 just in case the rain arrives.

Lurex Fabric Braid Floppy

Floppy sun hat £15 forn accessorize maybe I`ll add some flowers that match my dress.

Pastel Bangle Set         Wallis bracelets set £5 in their sale

Greenwich Rose Walking Umbrella
Cath Kidson Umberella for a little style in the rain or a fab sunshade £22 in her sale. Very vintage in style and very cute.

Chloris RedStorm sunglasses £35

Some great lip gloss and sunscreen and I`m ready.  Will I be sliding around in the mud? hope not but if it rains I will just tie up my dress and splash about in my hunters. What can be better than a weekend of music then checking if Andy Murray and Robson get through at Wimbledon.

Brands - Cath Kidson, Hunter, Storm, Wallis, SimplyBe, Accessorize and Milletts.

Taylor Wimpey Dinner Party Competition

This is my entry for the Taylor Wimpey Dinner Party Competition, where bloggers are invited to post their perfect menu for a housewarming dinner party.

I have chosen a holiday theme and as Greece is a place I really love I would welcome my guests with the famous Ouzo in ice water with  added mint.

My wine choice would be South African Cabernet Sauvignon which is the perfect red to compliment this meal. I would also have the dessert wine Gallo Moscato because everyone likes it.

I am sure it would be a great house warming party and Ouzo shots with salt and lemon would be sure to play some part in the evening.

St Albans Park

Heron sits fishing in St Albans Park Lake

 It was well worth dodging the showers to visit St Albans Park today. The lake was busy with Geese, ducks, swans and a patient Heron. The young geese are growing fast and the moorhens are still hatching their young.
