Date night & good hair

Past two weekends me and Ben have been decorating the front room, jeez are high Victorian ceilings hard to make over. We are nearly getting there, just need to get rid of the seriously heinous brown stained carpet. I want to hire an industrial sander and renovate the floorboards, just hoping they are in good enough condition to do so! Anyway, being in your scruffs all day isn't much fun so we went out for a lovely Italian meal last night and I was rather chuffed that my hair managed to look nice after having my pincurls under a scarf all day. Inca was also eager to share this joy of a good hair evening!


I wore a little Zara polka dot number, it reminded me of the look Jane Russell had when she and Marilyn got their paws imprinted at Grauman's Chinese Theater. 







What have you been up to this weekend? If anyone has any tips on prettifying floorboards do share!

  4. You look GORGEOUS! Such an easy glamorous dress for a date night, and I love the hair. No tips on prettying floor boards, or anything else home-designy though, I'm afraid! ;)

  5. O, Inca loves you so! that paw on the nose, SO adorable!
    You look totally divoon, darling, and rather sexy! Yes, that frock is very similar!!!
    I would have loved to do the floorboards in our kitchen, but they are really too knackered. I've not really looked into it, but they can look beautiful! There'll be loads of information on how to out there. Just make sure you have underfloor heating or insulation, though, it'll be cold as hell!!!
