Confessions of a drama queen

It's been half a year since I have blogged. 6 flippin' months. Such a long time that the changes here on blogger are totally alien to me. Help! 
In these 6 months so much has happened and I wasn't ready to share. I have a tendency of playing austrich during a depression. But I suppose it's time to get my head out of the sand. 2012 should have been a great year and it started great but soon after my life had come crashing down on me. So many times I had wanted to share on here and wrote mental novels but in the end I never did. And now I don't want to write a novel about it and take apart every single bit of emotion.  So just the very short version - Mr. Bossy had cancelled our wedding.
The important thing is - we've made it through and we are still together albeit not married. I don't think we've yet come out the other end but we're on our way there. We've caused my family a lot of hurt and financial trouble and inconvenience with the cancellation and we were both truly sorry for this. But it was something he had to do and I have come to understand why and I also think in the longer run it was for the better.

Another thing that had been depressing me for the past 6 months is a flippin' chronic allergic eye infection and eczema and/or psoriasis. For half a year now I've been wearing full time glasses. Granted they are fantastic glasses from Dead Men's Spex but no make-up. Or hardly ever. And if I wore make-up I'd regret it soon because it drives me frickin' crazy. After many appointments at the GPs and a long wait for a referral I finally have an appointment with the eye clinic in hospital in about a weeks time. Yay! Am still waiting for a referral for allergy testing and the dermatologists....

It is so very boring not to wear make-up. Hair spray is also a no no for me these days. Hence my decision to cut a fringe so I can leave my hair down just like that and still look how I like to look. It also covers up the alopecia caused by the eczema/psoriasis. I now feel like Rachel Berry off Glee - with my pretty mostly polka dotted dresses, alice bands and long straight hair and a fringe (bangs). Certainly got a nose to match hers!

Ok enough moaning done. I do hope my superficial vain problems will be sorted soon - the Twinwoods event is happening in the very near future and this year I've entered the beauty pageant. Purely to pick my moany old vain self up. So girlies - I'd be really grateful if you'd vote for me. You have to like the Twinwoods Event page first (that's a condition so votes count) and then like my pic. Thank you so much!

Having finally updated my blog feels really good! Really really good! Soon more to come!

Baby it's cold outside!

I love my elaborate hair dos and I love my berets - but funnily enough I don't like berets on elaborate hair dos. Well at least not on my head. Whenever I try to put my berets further back behind my ears it just doesn't look right on me - to me. And my ears get cold!

So during the very cold days I am very happy to ditch the hair styling and just plonk a beret on my head. The school-run is also much more on time that way :-)

Moustache-pin on my beloved grey beret - I made it. Watch this space - soon to be on sale!

For the New Year I made the superficial resolution not to buy so many polka dotted garments anymore - I own so many! But this LOVELY dress I bought just after Christmas - didn't count then!

Digging brown accessories at the moment - I am all in love with this black polka dotted very comfortable dress.

I am also very much in love with the beehive currently! And yes same dress again!

Practice makes perfect - I still need a little while to get ready when sporting a beehive but I get faster every time. I crocheted myself some padding and yes there's a giant moustache in my hair. I told you - watch this space!

When I was around 17 I was totally into the late 60s - very short black and white dresses, big round dangly earrings, bouffant hair, the make-up and big big knee high boots - but these days it's the early 60s that make my heart beat faster. 
Watching my current favourite series Pan Am certainly inspired me!
