Isn't it amazing how much more human you feel after a hair wash?

I've piled on the heavy metal, my voice may be feeble you can hear me coming a mile off.
Huge statement collar from Glynis's giveaway.

Helga sent me these neon hair extensions, which add a bit of colour to my voodoo priestess panne velvet maxi dress.
Yes, there really is a tortoise munching lettuce in the lounge. I thought Jacob was ready for hibernation but he's racing around the house like a thing possessed this morning, maybe we've an Indian Summer on the way?
Who could possibly feel rough with these velvet beauties on their feet?
Enough about me, here's the draw for my giveaway prize, a copy of the fabulous Affordable Couture by Jemi Armstrong & Linda Arroz.
I didn't dare share my croaky voice on film so chose a royalty-free track which I've just found out is called Suspenseful Tortoise - what are the chances of that?
Here's the comment my gorgeous winner left on my blog:
That book looks like a delight, and wonder of wonders, I saw that Jean Muir dress in person at the Manhattan Vintage Show on the weekend!! It was part of the display London Swings: Carnaby Street to Kings Road 1964-1974 - talk about a mind-blowing coincidence. I hope I win the book, it would be the perfect thing to read after my trip!
Sometimes life really does feel like a bunch of freaky coincidences (or maybe the drugs are starting to work!)

Thanks so much for all your kind words, messages and well-wishes. I'm feeling loads better today. Onwards and upwards and all that!
See you soon!
