Cheers My Dears!


Happy Friday, you lovely people!

This Cuba Libre is for all of you.


I can't believe I've got 197 followers! Blogging really has made a huge impact on me. You wonderful people have helped me through losing my beloved mother, one of the hardest times in my life. You've inspired me with your amazing hand-made creations and revamps, photography skills and literary talents, astonished me with your shopping abilities and bargain hunting, made me realise I'm not the only odd person out there and generally made my life even happier.


You are all fabulous, thank you!


....and the outfit? Vintage Dollyrockers by Sambo maxi skirt, Karen Millen embellished vest, red denim clogs - all second-hand and total outfit cost at just under a fiver, but of course you know me well enough to have already guessed that.


Cheers!

  14. Cheers to you, lovely Vix. When I finally get home (still stuck at work!) I'll share the spirit and have a large glass of wine.

    I'm so glad that we've helped you through recent rubbish times. Just speaking personally here, you've never been anything but lovely, helpful and encouraging to me so I'm really happy that you get the same thing back from the land of blogging.

  25. Couldn't agree more with your comments re blogging - it's made my life even happier, too, and opened up a whole new world. There's only two things better than grabbing an amazing bargain item, one is showing it to everybody else on your blog, and the other is reading about everybody else's amazing bargain items! Have a great Saturday xx
