I’m Back!

July. 22nd 2014

Did you miss me?

Well I for sure missed you…

Apologies I’ve been a bad blogger and away for so long, especially after such a rip-roaring start to My Blonde Reality but sadly I’ve had a rather shitty year so far and have been ill, so my reality (blonde or otherwise) hasn’t been much to talk about, aside from tears, tissues and triptans.

For those of you who know what a triptan is, will have gathered this has been migraine related, which is correct, though unbeknownst to me, there is such a think as an intractable migraine, which is bloody painful, a bloody nightmare and bloody hard to shift.

It has been 7 months of pretty much constant pain, but luckily, at long last, I finally seem to be winning!

Thanks to the folks at the National Migraine Centre and The Queen Square National Hospital for Neurology, along with my amazing husband and parents (who have had to put up with me for most of this, for which I will be eternally grateful), wider family and friends, I’m now slowly starting to get back on my feet and as part of my road to recovery I will be recapping the adventures I had at the end of 2013, which I was not well enough to share with you until now.

I will be back tottering around town before long and will no doubt be able to share some new adventures with you, but for now, I hope you enjoy these retrospective posts.

So it’s back to Reality… better late than never!

Giving Back At Crimbo: Save The Children Christmas Jumper Day 2013

Dec. 5th 2013

2013-12-04_22-41-06

Who doesn’t love a Christmas jumper?

What isn’t there to like?

We’ve all received one on Christmas day from a long lost Aunt, greeted it with a wan smile and worn it whilst stuffing ourselves with turkey.

It’s Christmas, it’s the law. That is just the way it is.

And this year, you get to do it twice, you lucky little elves…

Twice, I hear you cry?

Yes and it’s all for a good cause….

Say ‘Chanello’ to the Chanel pop-up at the Josh Wood Atelier…

What do you get when you cross a dull, damp, grey London day and a trip to the home of the celebrity snipper to the stars, otherwise known as the Josh Wood Atelier in Notting Hill?

FABULOUS. Fabulous is what you get.

The Josh Wood Atelier itself is fabulous with a capital F…

….and the long rosta of celeb clients attest to this,

but the folks at Josh Wood have not rested on the laurels of celebrity or Fabulous…

Oh no, Fabulous isn’t enough for the folks at this atelier…

They’ve bought in the big guns and cranked this salon up several notches from Fabulous…to Fricking Fabulous.

And how have they done this?

Let me tell you…

Drumroll please….

Purlfect Purl at The Bedford, Balham – A Sexy Little Speakeasy

Nov. 25th 2013

2013-11-21_20-52-48

Last weekend the Fabulous Fi, the Flamingo, Piptini and I (otherwise known as two thirds of team Spin) embarked on an evening of delicious ‘drinkonomy’, otherwise known as boozing in Balham.

Balham you may think of as an odd/off beat destination, with the whole of London at our disposal, but you would be wrong.

There is something of a cocktail revolution going on in Balham, a real revelation to me.

And as it is only a hop, skip and a jump from home, off we went.
