take a deep breath and start at the beginning, or matching your gloves to your nails to your swans, matchy matchy

swan leather face nails j Well hello hello! Yep, this is just a regular post. Hi. It's been too long! It really has. I have a HUGE backlog of things I want to share and have decided that the best place to start is the beginning. So, these are from the weekend before last, when I was sick with almost-flu but it was a Saturday and I was determined to get out of bed and go out for a nice breakfast. I looked like something Golum and Andy Warhol created and then regretted and there is no use in putting makeup over a mess but that didn't mean I wasn't going to enjoy my fabulous nails by Miss Fox. My swan jumper came out again (such good casual winter wear) and their beaks matched my nails perfectly, and, as it was cold, I took great delight (yes, really!) in matching my early 1960's gloves too. I was getting on a plane the next Sunday so I had my hair set and tied up in a scarf which, yes, matched my nails, beaks and gloves... one very co-ordinated Saturday!

It's funny looking at these pictures that seem so old (11 days!) now, because my nails have grown so much longer in that short time. They're due for a refresh and I am thinking of getting them done with the same stuff again. Who knows, maybe one day I'll actually have long nails..???!!!

Or, probably not. I'll get so far but then... anyway. The breakfast out was worth the struggle and the effort and OH but if I didn't match the poached pears on my porridge! Unintentional, this time. I absolutely had nothing to do with John's brekkie choice or colour scheme but I can tell you it was very, very nice. Afterwards I staggered back home and went straight back to bed, and got up that evening to pack for what was an amazing trip. I am going to start editing those pics. They'll be up next! x swan leather c swan leather gloves g swan leather  porridge d swan leather shoes f swan leather steak e swan leather swan gloves i
