Busy life means quiet blog!

As usual it seems I haven't been around much lately, I haven't even had chance to catch up with my favourite blogs so apologies I haven't disappeared off the face of the earth I'm just having a really busy time!!

I did one of my most favourite things yesterday I had my hair cut at Nina's Vintage Hair Parlour. Not only do I come out of Nina's looking and feeling a million dollars, but I have the time of my life whilst I'm there, you can't really ask for more can you. I had every intention of taking loads of photos this time to let you see it all and experience it with me, but instead Nina and I (then later Claire) just talked and laughed for hours and hours!!

Anyway what I did do is take a before and after shot, it's been ages since I've been to Nina, it's shameful, but I've been broke, so my hair had gotten completely long and out of control, and believe my hair is thick so when it gets out of control, wow, it's really out of control!

I took this shot when I got there.


Wild and unruly hair begone!


I'm far happy than I look! I'd just sat in rush hour traffic from London, uuurgh, but my hair I was over the moon about, I'm a very happy bunny

I was also lucky to get a great book delivered today, I order from the people who supply Schiffer Books and I was lucky to get this! I love Schiffer books, I could run a book store and stock only their books and be very very happy although I'd probably not make any money ever ha ha

This books makes me happy and will provide me with hours and years of joy just gazing at the pretty fabrics, it's called Conversational Print of the 50s, and you know me I do like a conversational print!!





If I could find even one print from this book I'd be pretty happy for a very long time!

I haven't just been having my hair cut and getting stock delivered, I've done a day event, been to a trade fair to check out new stock for later in the year, in fact it's been non stop. Then of course I have the Rockabilly Rave next week, as traders we have to leave on Wednesday, so I load the van on Tuesday. I haven't finished my sewing yet and I still have to go to a supplier on Sunday to get more fabulous stock so I'm not sure you'll hear from me now before the Rave, see you in a couple of weeks, hope you all have a good couple of weekends!

QUICK EDIT - I just noticed I have 299 followers, lordy, one more and I'll have to do another fabulous giveaway, how on earth did that happen so quickly. Thanks all!

Hair looks fab!! Well worth the wait :) That book looks amazing too, it has been added to my "want" list, along with the Fabulous 50s and Vintage Plastics books that I also want! Masses of good luck with the Rave, and have fun! :))

Penny Dreadful said...

You hair is gorgeous. I've never been to Nina's, I guess with having short hair there isn't much point. I have been thinking of going blonde though, so perhaps I could get my hair coloured there. The book looks incredible, wouldn't I love to drool over that xx

Living Vintage said...

Love the hair! And I have noticed that many people are blogging less including myself, I guess you have to make hay while the sunshines and its that time of year when the sun is out a lot more.

Eartha Kitsch said...

You look beautiful! I'd love to go to a real live hair parlour. Nobody here gets it and I do mean nobody. Congrats on your 299 followers! 300 will be along any day now!

Lucky O'Day said...

Ahh, your hair looks wonderful!! Wht an adorable salon, I checked out the website and I absolutely adore it! Sadly, by me there's only kitschy barber shops, nothing for the ladies! :(

When I am extremely busy, I hardly find time for eating, not speaking about cooking. But being a wife, I have to somehow arrange this issue. Thus, I have come to a special list of recipes which don't take much time:
