For me the number one thing that attracts me to her style is her makeup and the definition of her expressive eyes. Maybe I'll play dressups this week and try to a bit more like Katy?

So my overall review. FANTASTIC NIGHT! cool music, surprise friends catch up, awesome location and finally got to see a band I love LIVE! Which makes me want to remind you all to take the chance and get out there in this big wide world. Even if you have to go alone you never know who'll you meet once your out there.

So far I've had MsLele, Mr Noisewater, Mr Miki as well the 2 Mr G's. Plus I've still got Miss Kitty, BamBam, Kendiedoll and Modman to come visit over the next month. Now I'm more than excited to see everyone but what do you do when you seem to have guest, after guest, after guest. And at one logistical nightmare time I actually had one leave and four arrive!
The first thing to save everyone wondering "what's up" be honest about what's going on. Tell your people that you've had lots of people staying so you may be a bit on the back foot when it comes to thinking of new things to do. However do remember that just because you've already cooked that 'famous meal of yours' for the last few guests its the current guests first time.
Secondly make sure you let your guests know that although they me on holiday if you are still working that you will need to honor those commitments. Be sure to let them know what nights will be good for you for a night. For instance I have to specific days off each week so there are two nights that I can go out with no clock watching.
Thirdly, and most importantly, have time to yourself. Again honesty is the best option, let your guests know that you need some 'wind down time after work'. I often tell my house guests that I often need half and hour to turn off my work mind and relax, so if they can give me that time to get changed and have some space I'll be even better to be around. For instance when MsLele stays we have a routine of who ever gets home first makes sure there is a glass of wine ready for the other. We then also give each other 30 mins to 'relax' then we 'regroup' for a night of fun and chatting. It works for us.

So I've been thinking about the classic 1950's day dress. With the simple shirt dress you can warm it up with a cardi/shrug or shawl or keep it cool with a wide brimmed sun hat. Whats even better as this style can be found in many modern shops such as portmans, sussans and even target. I can tell you know ladies there will be a lot of these dresses this summer for me.

1) find out if you have a good side
2) With the wonders of modern digital photos you can keep snapping till you find what you like
3) Use the different settings in your photo programs or on your camera to see what works for you. All I did for this shot was to turn a color photo into sepia and fade out the edges.
4) Experiment - you never know till you try
5) Have fun with photos

Yes I've been bitten by the Christmas planning bug so I've been wondering what new traditions I can bring to my new house. Since this year has been a very big one for change and starting over I thought it may be time to forge a few new traditions.
My first idea is to hold a tree trimming party on Christmas eve with lots of bubbles, retro music on the and get everyone round to dress my christmas tree. Maybe a bit of baking like some yummy cupcakes and small finger food to feed the hungry masses.

The Pigalle Laurie corset is another dramatic-looking gored-hip style, great on curvy vintage figures as it allows for maximum cinching with optimum comfort. With inspiration drawn from this range's namesake, the naughty Pigalle Quartier of Paris, and the vivid red satin and black floral lace overlay is decadent, elegant and more than a little bit saucy. Laurie is one of What Katie Did newest overbust designs, carefully cut to fit and flatter a wide range of bust sizes. The shaped cups will boost and uplift smaller busts, as well as supporting and enclosing larger cup sizes – up to a generous E. They've made this beautiful corset extra special, by adding a pleated ribbon trim at bottom and along the sweetheart neckline, with a little bow nestling at the décolleté, for that perfect finishing touch.
