21/05/2011

Following on from: How to throw a fabulously RETRO lingerie party! (INSPIRATION)

SO with my vision completely illustrated and the bridemaids and party guests fully appraised, I now had to put my ideas into practice.

This is where I quickly realised that the phrase that most accurately applied was… ‘easier PLANNED than DONE’. So… in true procrastinator’s  efficient organiser’s style, I broke the planning down into categories:

  • Decor
  • Food and Drink
  • Entertainment

This Summer’s Ray of Sunshine

19/05/2011

This time last year I was touting the style credentials of Greige as the must-have colour for your nails.

This year’s trendsetter could NOT be more different. If the palette of summer ’10 personified elegance with edgy attitude then summer ’11 literally puts last year’s colour in the shade.

How to throw a fabulously RETRO lingerie party! Pt. 1…

12/05/2011

So my little sister is getting married and as her bridesmaid it was up to me to throw her the best Bachelorette Party possible. Unfortunately my little sister had a list of stipulations.

1. Nothing public
2. Nothing embarrassing
3. No dressing up in embarrassing outfits

Diary of a Chemo Girl: My Hair, My Life

I found out I needed chemo in a very unconventional way. It had been a little while since I had first been diagnosed with breast cancer but I was in pretty high spirits and wasn’t really worrying about anything because I kept telling myself over and over again… “I’ll do anything to fight this thing…at least I don’t need chemo”. I wasn’t nervous about the surgeries or any of the tests because I knew that none of those were as bad as having chemo. I was in my hospital bed getting ready to go into my second surgery as my doctor was explaining that she didn’t think I would have any problems getting pregnant later in life. Because of my nursing background I knew that those kinds of infertility issues only come up for patients receiving chemotherapy, not radiotherapy. I remember looking straight at her and I was barely able to whisper “Wait…does that mean I need chemo?” The world stood still for a moment as I let the word that she had just spoken sink in for a second.
