Glastonbury was beautiful!

Back from an amazing weekend at Glastonbury! I had the best time and the sun actually showed up and hung around for a very respectable amount of time. I always book into a hotel (in theory camping kinda appeals to me but in practice I pretty much despise it) and so a drizzly and muddy Friday didn't worry me too much, but then Saturday was GORGEOUS! I loved it. I saw some fantastic bands. Goldfrapp blew me away. Alison Goldfrapp looked great as usual and her voice is amazing live. They came on at about 6.30pm and it was that lovely time of the day when the sun is begining to sink a little and everything is golden and hazy and gorgeous.

Foals played in the rain on Friday but were so tight and put everything into their set.

There were so many other great bands. Vampire weekend were so good, definitely one of my highlights, as was Seasick Steve, Amy Winehouse, Neon Neon, and The Raconteurs. Plus, my brother in law's girlfriend had a vintage clothes stall by the Pyramid Stage and so I even managed to do a little shopping. And when I say shopping I mean she very, very kindly gave me a couple of things I had my eye on for free! How could it get any better?

To keep and to treasure...

It'll be our first wedding anniversary soon and in honour of the occasion we've bought this painting from artist Amanda Blake. I adore her work. It has a vintage feel and is soft and muted and a little magical.
I think it would be nice to invest in something beautiful every anniversary. Something to keep and to treasure.

I went to a wedding on the weekend. It was such a gorgeous day and the sun didn't stop shining. The day had a 'film' theme and as I was sat on the Breakfast At Tiffany's table I got to wear a tiara and a huge sparkley ring all through the meal. There was also a Moulin Rouge table, a Top Gun table and a Batman table (which was accessorised with, amongst other things, a cat mask not unlike the Luella version which I was a little jealous of. A good idea don't you think? I wore this Johnny Loves Rosie headband with a huge flower.
And a silk dress in this print.
Don't you hate wearing heels on grass? I'm wedged in about 3in here.
My lil' brother is getting married in August and I haven't yet decided on an outfit. Got any ideas? Any suggestions gratefully received.

Too much, too many?

I'm tempted by the pink Rayban wayfarers. Except that I think they're way overdone. But aren't they sweet? Would you?
