I've been looking for the Miu Miu collar for a long time and never really found it, just on picture and I think the idea of adding a collar to a dress or a T-shirt is really cool. So today I had the light bulb over my head moment, and thought why don't I make my own? I have a shirt or two from when I used to work and don't wear it any more.
This is what the original looks like

I didn't just get up, got up at 11, had a little bit of a sleep in today. Dodger brought a pigeon in at 2 o'clock this morning, luckily it was dead!!!! Husband rescued us, such a man's man! :-)
I don't know if I want to go to the gym today. I am fully dress as you will see when I upload my look of today but it is cooler outside today and I'm not really feeling like going anywhere except to a cafe and read. I have downloaded 25 classic b...

We went to our friends yesterday to watch the Biggin Hill air show and the football game. Arrived around 11.30am and left at 5pm, as I was developing a migraine from the heat, sun and wine before breakfast.

last nights date was cancelled due to Husband being knackered! But he has now made up by taking me to breakfast at Carluccio's in Canary Wharf and by giving me his card to crazy shopping ;-) Just waiting for Shirin to get ready, I just woke her up :-D We are off to Oxford street in the heat, have a dress, a pair of shoes, a jumper and some lingerie to find and buy :-) and then I think it is dinner and a movie, a girl date :-)

I arrived early in Westfield's today, not late, like I thought I'd be :-) Had a lovely lunch with Lana at Wagamama's then a coffee but can't remember the name of the cafe :-) Lana had to go pick up the kids and I went window shopping. Bought Cosmopolitan ( which I only buy when I have read ALL the other magazine, British and International) s I don't think it is very good, had a Starbucks and then went to Boots and Topshop. Bought a nail varnish from Topshop and a super fine eye shadow in powder ...

Went to see my friend Nadine and the band she is in called Polaris Condition at the Elixir Bar in Camden
Am keeping it on my watch until I have decided which charm bracelet I will put it on. I think it is a very good idea this whole charm business :-)
Will be eaten alone as Husband has to work late!!! Any way , I am making chili con carne with rice

I think it is fun :-) very summer and very snot like green :-D

Tonight we are going out with Brian and Christine to celebrate her birthday :-) Husband will be dead tired but it is at his favourite restaurant La Lanterna so I think he will be ok, he had a meeting at 6.30 in the city this morning and is no good if he gets up before 9am :-(

How are we al feeling today? Any partying yesterday?
I'm going to my niece Ingrid's 5th birthday party today :-) She asked for a camera for her birthday and as she is always using mine, we bought her one yesterday. Went to Stratford to find Argos where Husband had reserved a camera for me to pick up. First of all Stratford is FULL of people and second of all Stratford is a funny, funny place :-) inside the shopping centre is a market where they sell EVERYTHING!...

hope you didn't miss me too much. We just got back about an hour ago. Had a great holiday but it was hard work ;-) Sweden is such a long country to get through on a car let alone a bike, you're ass gets numb almost immediately and the more breaks you have the longer it takes to get to your destination. On our way to Stockholm we had to stay one unplanned night in Copenhagen as our friends bike wasn't behaving and a 3 hour journey took 7 and a half!!! will upload some picture...
just had to show you these fabulous clogs I bought the other day at a petrol station in the middle of Sweden on our way to Stockholm!!!
They are a little bit tight but that's because they are new and leather is always stiffer when it is new. Will go to shoemaker and have them stretched when we get back to London. Aren't they fabulous?!?

Last night I went to see Bon Jovi at the O2 with Husband. I realised that I have lost count of how many times I have actually been to a concert of theirs but I can tell you that I have been going to see them for 22 years this year. How crazy is that?!? I went to my first Bon Jovi concert in Stockholm in 1988, I was 11 years old ;-) Here are a few pictures from last nights show which was amazing. There are always a few songs which I don't like at all but hearing the old ones is why I go year afte...
I am sitting here in our dining area eating my breakfast
Celebrated Shirin's birthday, actual birthday, at the Hummingbird bakery in South Kensington where she opened her second present form us, a bag full of goodies ;-) including nail varnishes, Sarah Jessica Parker's first Perfume, Juicy lipgloss from Lancome and 2 Marc Jacobs condoms ;-)
I know I look a bit crazy on that picture, haven't done my make up yet ;-)
Am off to Hummingbird bakery today with Tjingtjingpolska. Wanna give her her second present over a cupcake and some coffee ;-)
I know that it is someone's birthday today, but I seriously cannot remember who's!!!! I think it is someone that lives with us... Ahh now I remember, it must be Dodger's 21st birthday today ;-) that would one old cat!!!
After a little nap when we got home from the christening, it was time to get ready for the drinks celebrations at the Sandersons...
The real cat's birthday is Shirin!!!!!!! Happy birthday!!!!!!!
Hope you'll have a fabulous birthday today!!!!!!!!
I wore my harem trousers from Asos, boob tube from New Look, shoes from Oasis, necklace from Mikey Jewellery, ring Marc by Marc Jacobs and bag by Chanel of course.
Woke up at 4.30 this morning!!! No it wasn't the butterflies in my stomach for becoming godmother later that morning, it was our lovely cat Dodger who brought in a mouse and decided to play with it under our bed and then lost it! The mouse out-smarted the cat that brought it in!! Husband intervened and killed the mouse with the pellet gun...
Then the alarm went off at 7.45, time to get ready for the big day... I was dead tired already and so was Husband and Shirin... Rented a ...

I am back from a whole day outside!! Met up with Shirin at Apostrophe and then went for a little shopping trip around Oxford Street, which was PACKED with people! I bought a guide book on Stockholm from Selfridge's as it is only 5 days until we hop on the bike and take the ferry to Denmark and drive to Stockholm via Gothenburg. I won't see my family or friends this time as it isn't that kind of holiday and we have friends with us and it wouldn't be fair on them to have to sit and socialise with ...

Do you like the new lipgloss I got with my magazine today?
I like the pink shimmer and I think it smells like grapefruit. It comes in two more colours so I might have to get two more Red magazines just to get the gloss :-) at least it is cheaper than buying the lipgloss on it's own ;-)
Let me know what colour you get if you get any?
News from Vogue:
These new nail varnish colour combinations are out in September and are sold in a pack of two and have different colour-combinations...
something to look forward to in the Autumn :-)

As you know, I am in love with clogs this season and have been all year as soon as I saw the Chanel spring/summer collection. Shirin bought me a pair which I love but am still on the look out for the perfect heeled clog and I think I have found them! Saw these a long time ago and thought that they are cute and very retro looking. Might have a look when I go to Stockholm in July. They also happen to feature on Sarah Jessica Parker in Sex and the City 2 ;-)
I cancelled the interview I was supposed to have at 4pm. I woke up thinking it isn't fair to try to get a job now, since we will be away so much his summer. I also thought if I was the manager interviewing someone like me who isn't free to work as much as they need you to, you'd be wasting my time and I could have found a better more flexible candidate. So no need to wish me luck anymore ;-) The company was Hobbs in Westfield and the position was team leader, which I don't really want either...

Tried them on today and they might be too high, but I think I'll get them anyway when Shirin pays her rent next week :-) I can always practice at home right? :-D
As you all know I had my theory test for driving today and I passed! Yeay me! :-)
To celebrate Shirin and I went to Marc by Marc Jacobs to buy her birthday present ( which I can't show you yet) and as it was really raining outside I got an umbrella for me for £15, new mascara and I had my nails done
