Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night.

Festive Round Up

Life has been so hectic of late. Work have had an exhibition running in Marylebone and Ma gave Phee and I tickets to see the Nutcracker at the Coliseum. So, what with one thing or another, I have spent rather a lot of time in the Big Smoke, and blogging has fallen rather by the way side.

Making Fruit Punch on opening night.
Modern Toss Seasonal Blowout exhibition.

Gallery Outfit #2
Covent Garden Baubles
The Nutcracker at the Coliseum.
Rudolph with a red bauble nose!

Have a wonderful Christmas everyone! and a smashing New Year!

Uncle Sam's Braces

I preface this post by saying that Brighton is 'supposedly' a hub of individuality where, in theory, people feel able to look and act the way they like. On the strength of this I donned my-faux- Henry Holland tights with joy. Imitations they may be but they are not so cheap and tacky as to warrant the dirty looks thrown their way on my walk into'd think I had done something terrible!
Shirt, River Island. Cardi, TopShop, £20. Shorts, TopShop (customized). Tights, NewLook, £4.99. Shoes, Primark.
Popped on a bit of ACDC- forgotten musical friend of my youth.
OK so maybe I look a little risque with my coat on... but still!
Hope you're all having a lovely weekend- off in search of a hearty roast now- back soon xXx

Deck The Halls

Phee and I decided to deck The Penthouse halls with festive cheers in readiness for the arrival of December.
We got a tad over excited at the prospect.
Home made orange and clove balls- the flat now smells rather pungently of festive spices.
Our hideous pink tree- a gift from the twins.
Exhibiting the Christmas socks.
Several glasses of mulled goodness later.

Red Lippy & A Velvet Dress

I have been getting into longer skirts recently (perhaps a sign of my age :/... who knows). Ma gave me this dress a few Christmases ago and it really deserves to be worn more,  it sort of reminds me of Eva Green's velvet dress in The Dreamers (a favorite film in The Penthouse household).

Whapped out the red lippy, wish I'd worn a beret too now- next time!
 Check out The Penthouse 'garden'. I'm thinking cider and a rooftop picnic or two come Summer.

Impulsive, Expensive and Painful

Spent all day loitering about town with Phee, sipping on coffee, pre-Christmas Christmas shopping, and generally having a lovely time.

Also, sort of on a whim, I got my ear pierced! I say sort of because I have wanted to do it since c.2006 after seeing this (see below). Don't know why it took me so long. Popped into Punktured this morning and as 'luck' would have it they had an opening. Phee had to come in and hold my hand but I'm pleased I had it done.

Like children in a sweet shop. Fucking love Cathy K.
